Obama’s Proposed Hiring Tax Credit is the Wrong Answer for Small Business.
Why Obama’s Proposed Hiring Tax Credit is the Wrong Answer for Small Business. The administration has recently proposed several measures to “stimulate” small business and encourage hiring. There are four components of the proposed plan: 1) a $5000 per worker tax credit for each net new hire, 2) a reimbursement of the increase in social security taxes incurred as a result of the net new | Read More »
H1N1, Obama’s Pandemic That Wasn’t – ‘Nuther Snow Job.
How far would Barack Obama and his administration go in order to gin up support/panic for his signature health care legislation? If you’ll remember, the grandstanding and informational blitz for the ‘UPCOMING’ H1N1 started back around January and February of last year. The Democrats were shouting from the roof tops that “THE PANDEMIC IS COMING, THE PANDEMIC IS COMING”. We HAD to have health care | Read More »
9.7% – What’s Wrong With That Figure?
Like every thing else about this Obama Presidency and administration, nothing is straight forward. It’s always a conjuration of smoke and mirrors. It’s just like Rush Limbaugh used to say about the Clinton administration, “These people get out of bed in the morning saying to themselves, ‘HOW CAN WE FOOL THEM TODAY?’ “ Fact is, it’s getting a lot harder to do. The leftists can | Read More »
Barack Obama Admits That “By Design” You Remain Unemployed
“Barack Obama refused to help get unemployment down in 2009 by design so he could get credit in the 2010 election year instead.” Many of us have been saying it for a while. The White House intended that the stimulus money, which the White House intended to use to save or create jobs, would not really be spent in 2009 as unemployment soared to over | Read More »
Indescribable Govt Waste
With red ink as far as the eye can see and an election year upon us, Democrats are attempting to position themselves as more fiscally conservative. While the rhetoric sounds like something most Americans should support, a brief examination reveals this nonsense for what it is, a lie. There is so much waste that its hard to explain it and do it justice. Here is | Read More »
A Little Less Talk And A Lot More Action
Obama has been a president defined by speeches. But if the old adages are true, that “actions speak louder than words” and “talk is cheap,” Obama must rise above rhetoric and get something done. Every crucial moment and every tough decision of the Obama presidency has been accompanied by a speech. As, The Australian wrote of Obama, Obama makes uniformly brilliant speeches. His presidency is | Read More »
My Response to the State of the Union
As I listened to the President speak about the problems facing our nation and how he intends to solve them I heard one phrase repeated over and over again – more government. I wondered why the President isn’t listening to the American people. They don’t want the government involved in every part of their life. They don’t trust Washington to solve their problems any longer. | Read More »
A day after becoming a populist fiscal FAUX hawk on freezing 12% of the budget after greatly increasing it, Obama will push high speed rail make-work to be globally cool. Something about high speed rail is cool to liberals for some reason. A DOWN PAYMENT of $8-$13 billion over a few years in 13 different corridors was pledged from the stimulus(gee how much of the | Read More »
The Consequences of Inconsequence
From the diaries by Erick I probably have zero drops of Mayan blood in my veins. I do, however, admire their imaginative take on apocalyptic prophesy. I think they just about got 2012 dead-on. Even absent the bitter hatred accompanying a Presidential Election in our divided states of America, that year will require a little more than just Advil to take the edge off. People | Read More »
Boxer Banking on Faulty Stimulus Figures for Reelection
Senator Barbara Boxer Monday hit the campaign trail to tout jobs “created by the stimulus” in California by the Democrats’ $800 billion economic recovery package, attracting ridicule from Republican Carly Fiorina’s campaign who accused the junior Democratic senator of an “effort to deceive voters into thinking she’s actually done something for California.” With the expansion of California’s State Route 905 as her backdrop, Senator Boxer insisted | Read More »
Economic Stimulus Created or Saved at Least 2 Million Liberals
Here we go again. Last night the White House released another self-congratulatory report boasting new “jobs created or saved” numbers. This quarter the number is “between 1.7 and 2 million” jobs. In the Grand Experiment known as counting the “jobs created or saved” by the economic stimulus plan, the Grand Experiment Schemers have concocted yet another way to count the bogus jobs. This quarter’s | Read More »
33,434,730 Reasons to Elect Scott Brown
There are currently 33,434,730 people unemployed in America. That figure comes from Bureau of Labor Department statistics, and is much higher than the 15 million unemployed officially reported by the Obama administration. The number of people in America who are unemployed but not officially counted as unemployed by the government is about equal to the entire population of the state of Massachusetts…plus the state populations | Read More »
Worse Than Expected? Who Are These Idiots Who Manage The Expectations Around Here?
Believe it or not, there was actually some good news in yesterday’s meh employment report. Hourly earnings increased by 0.2 percent. Other than that, imagine you were rooting for UT last night – after Colt McCoy went down with the bum shoulder. In other words, you should have known how this was destined to turn out. However, expectations were not well pegged to reality. The | Read More »
Unemployment Officially At 10% … But It’s Really 21.9%
It’s that time again. This morning, the Department of Labor released the official statistics for U.S. unemployment last month. And just as the Obama administration promised, things are getting better. Right? Wrong. Optimists were looking for the first signs of net job creation last month since 2007. At worst, they were hoping for the jobless rate to hold steady at 10.0%. And the worst is | Read More »
What a Difference a Year Makes
Just a year into the Obama Administration, things look very different than candidate Obama said they would last November. Both in domestic and international affairs, the first year of Obama’s presidency must by any objective standard be judged a dismal failure. His victories have largely been small and partisan, while his defeats have been large and bipartisan. Obama has been ridiculed even in his moments | Read More »
