Susan Roesgen asks a protester “Why are you here today?” I guess his answer wasn’t what she was looking for so she starts to argue with him. It gets even better when she claims: That the crowd “is anti-government “ The crowd “anti-CNN” The | Read More »

NY Times writer Paul Krugman also thinks anyone protesting high taxes is crazy.
www.thepoliticalclass.com NY Times writer Paul Krugman also thinks anyone protesting high taxes is crazy. First it was MSNBC and now the NY Times jumps on the “You’re insane if you protest high taxes” bandwagon. Pau Krugman writes: This is a column about Republicans — and I’m not sure I should even be writing it. Today’s G.O.P. is, after all, very much a minority party. | Read More »
The Obama Rosetta Stone
Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal brings us this insightful idea of understanding Obama. Of course we already know Obama, and this is just reinforcement, but more proof is always a better argument. Let me introduce his third, a book that will touch everyone’s life: "A New Era of Responsibility: Renewing America’s Promise. The President’s Budget and Fiscal Preview" (Government Printing Office, 141 pages, | Read More »
Obama shocked that reporter from NY Times asked him if he is a socialist – Obama too afraid to quack.
Note to the kool-aid drinking leftists out there. The NY Times reporter tried to jump in and save him.
“Is there anything wrong with saying, ‘Yes’?” a Times reporter pressed.

How the CRA contributed mightily to the credit crunch
While the often-cited big picture conclusion is correct (the CRA was very harmful), I don’t think we’re getting the series of events quite right. Certainly, the Community Reinvestment Act sanctioned and encouraged subprime lending. But I don’t believe banks were necessarily drawn kicking and screaming to participate. To the contrary, subprime lending was profitable in the early 2000s, and defended strongly by such “champions of | Read More »
Nancy Soderberg is an Idiot
Who you ask? Former Clinton National Security Advisor, author of “The Superpower Myth” was just on O’Reilly (replay at 9pm pacific I think) Anyway she was on explaining how Obama’s new terrorist policies will make us safer and more respected. What she said was so contradictory that it did not even make sense. She said people cannot be held indefinately that’s un-American and then said later | Read More »
Does Obama Favor Big Corporations?
Many counted Barack Obama’s support from the leaders of major corporations as a thread of confidence that his policies would help spur economic growth; that business leaders had confidence in Obama’s “spend for prosperity” approach. The Obama campaign officially barred corporate donors (though Federal law prohibits corporations from contributing to campaigns), but many corporate leaders donated directly and bundled contributions from others in an effort to pump millions of dollars into the Obama coffers.
Donors included individuals and bundlers from Goldman Sachs, Google, Microsoft, Citigroup, IBM and JP Morgan Chase. It seems that many at these corporations believed on election day that Obama’s policies were best for them.
Indeed, I am certain that Obama’s policies are preferable to major corporations. Let’s take a look at his policies, found on his election website, the AFL-CIO and from Factcheck.org:

Economics, Israel and Blago. Aren’t We Forgetting…?
As we have become so focused lately on the economy, the conflict in Israel and the ongoing Blagojevich scandal, we have lost sight of some other important issues facing the nation, and I wonder if that is not without design. Here are some talking points we need to keep in mind, lest the liberals in Congress and the White House distract us long enough to | Read More »
On Florida And A Vision For Successful Education Reform
Great post. There need to be more like it and they need to go viral in a major way. The incoming Administration ought to be put on the defensive swiftly concerning any attempt on its part to undermine the school choice movement–especially given the Obamas’ insistence on keeping their children in private school and away from the influence of the very teachers’ unions that backed | Read More »
The Wise and Foolish Builders
The conclusion or summary of “the greatest speech ever given”. 24″Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But | Read More »
Response to a University’s newspaper commentary
Ok, so the editor of the “Commentary” section posted an article claiming that Sen. McCain was profiting from the myths and misconceptions of his foreign policy experience. The writer claimed McCain was basing this expertise based upon 1) time as a POW; and 2) being to Iraq several times. Here is my response, hope y’all enjoy!!

The 2nd Amendment Protects the 1st
One of the days I look forward to each month is the day the latest issue of American Rifleman Magazine arrives. Yesterday I received the November issue, with the election emphasis naturally prominent. There was comprehensive information regarding the record of Obama & Biden on 2nd Amendment issues. I had to feel somewhat ashamed that I was unaware or had forgotten the scope of anti-gun | Read More »
OK, America—Who are You Really Mad at?
Jay Cost wrote in an excellent column that John McCain is a victim of the mortgage crisis. I believe that Cost is right, because the night before the mortgage crisis hit, Senator McCain was beating Senator Obama by an average of 3-5 points in the polls. What I can deduce from those previous polls is that when people originally compared McCain to Obama—pre-mortgage crisis—the majority | Read More »
