Obama avoids saying ‘genocide’ in Turkey*.
(H/T: Dan Riehl) With regard to President Obama’s decision to not confront the Armenian Genocide question while in Turkey – as noted here from someone on the scene, he specifically avoided using the word genocide – it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that he didn’t keep that particular campaign promise (“America deserves a leader who speaks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide and responds | Read More »

Orlando Tea Party ~ Lloyd Marcus American Tea Party Song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aZofIKLUuY Lloyd was on Fox this morning talking about the song. Glad he included their “dirty trick” of calling anyone that disagrees with Obama a racist.
It’s Only Wendesday: How Many Sacred Trusts Can be Violated in 1 Week?
Now I am spitting mad. The AIG bonuses made me almost mad enough to write, but hearing the Speaker’s proposed solution, a 90% tax on the individuals receiving the bonuses, I’ve just gone totally ballistic. Sure, AIG should return funds equal to the government. But over-taxing the individuals who received them is just piling outrage on top of outrage. This was caused by the | Read More »
Rep Waxman still refusing to face small business owners.
Last week, Congressmen Joe Barton (R) and George Radanovich (R) sent a letter to Congressman Henry Waxman (D) requesting hearings into the rather badly misnamed Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. As you know, the CPSI was pushed through a Democrat-controlled Congress by Speaker Pelosi (D) without the usual Congressional oversight: as a result, it was not until after the law had been passed that it | Read More »
Pelosi, Reid swear at each other in semi-public.
(H/T: Don Surber) The two Democratic branches of Congress aren’t precisely happy with each other right now: Reid, Pelosi Swearing Match Over Omnibus After an angry, swearing late night meeting among top Democrats, Congress voted Friday to give itself another five days to try to complete a long-overdue omnibus spending bill that had become a growing embarrassment for party leaders and President Barack Obama.

When Did Playing By The Rules Become A Crime?
When did playing by the rules become a crime? The housing legislation that the Democrat Congress is set to consider today includes something called “cramdown” It’s a provision of the bill that gives judges the power to rewrite someone’s home mortgage when they default and file for bankruptcy, reducing the principal balance on the loan. That is, if someone takes out a $150,000 mortgage on | Read More »
It’s Time to Encourage Responsibility in Home Ownership
It seems to me, and many of my constituents back home in Pennsylvania, that Congress is spending all of its time and energy rewarding those who acted irresponsibly. We must not ignore those who have played by the rules and lived within their means. Our current economic problems aren’t limited to the sub-prime housing market, reckless borrowers or predatory lenders. Millions of Americans who pay | Read More »

Recovery.gov a Fraud
Anybody check out Obama’s recovery.gov site? This is the site that allegedly is supposed to “[let] you, the taxpayer, figure out where the money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going.” HA! I urge everyone to go to the site, and also go here to send them a message to let them know what you think about the generational theft recovery act.
The Obama Administration Is Not Clueless
There are so many pundits and journalists who are willing to carry the water for the Obama Administration. They report to their viewers, listeners, and readers that nobody knows for sure what effect the Obama Stimulus Plan is going to have, and if there is a further downturn that it would just be an unintended consequence of this youthful inexperienced team. I do not buy | Read More »
Jobs ‘saved’ by ‘stimulus’ reduced to 2.5 million.
Contra Wizbang and Roger Kimball, this is actually the latest estimate of Mark Zandi, not the Obama administration itself. What the Obama administration is merely doing is trying to lower the expectations of their debt bill: WASHINGTON (Reuters)- President Barack Obama’s aides warned Americans on Sunday not to expect instant miracles from the $787 billion economic stimulus bill he will sign this week, but said | Read More »
The Hell with the First 100: The First 21 Are Horrible Enough
Ah it was such a bright sunny day in Washington, DC. The air was filled with anticipation as the new president was sworn into office. As he gave his Inaugural Address, the air became filled with what John Kass of the Chicago Tribune calls Hopium. It is the feeling of your spirits lifting and your mind freed from the rigors of the past. It generates | Read More »
