Every day is Tax Day
April 15 is upon us: Tax Day, our national day of introspection about the burden of government. It has been said that if elections were held right after Tax Day, we wouldn’t be in this economy-crushing fiscal mess. But is that really true any more? Half of us aren’t paying any taxes on April 15. Many Americans receive a tax refund, which they understandably but | Read More »
Obama In The Backblast.
It’s ironic how quickly events can turn. MaoBama and the DNC goon squad were preparing what they thought to be a devastating attack against our presumptive presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, by attacking his wife and attempting to discredit and marginalize her. In order to accomplish this end, they trotted out the usual assortment of worn-out hacks to demean a lady who has more class in | Read More »

Tax Day Proposal – Let the States Fund the More Perfect Union
Back when we beat them British there at Yorktown the American nation was a confederation of former colonies each operating under sovereign governments of their own. The original “gang of” (being 13, obviously) came together first under the Articles of Confederation then later with the Constitution that we know today (or should I say some of us know today . . . present administration, many | Read More »
It’s Only Common Sense
By Tom Tillison Florida Political Press Common Sense… Merriam-Webster Online defines common sense as beliefs or propositions that most people consider prudent and of sound judgment, based upon what they see as knowledge held by people “in common”. In 1776, Thomas Paine’s pamphlet ‘Common Sense’ had the largest circulation of any book in American history in large part because he wrote and reasoned in a | Read More »
On Tax Day, AFSCME protests for tax increases
Yesterday was Tax Day, the day when most Americans file their income tax returns and either shell out more money, or not. There were also protests going on all over the country yesterday by people who are fed up with government’s runaway spending. However, in Minneapolis, the recipients of the runaway spending, members of the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees were out | Read More »
Happy Tax Day. Now cough it up chump.
Paid mine two weeks ago. Got a refund. $2,200. WOO HOO!!!! I always feel like a load has been lifted off my shoulders after I file. I’m good for a whole year now. I got my whole life ahead of me. I ain’t going to jail and no one is going to seize my bank account. I’m free. I took that stupid envelope filled with | Read More »

This is not a primary, and the winner of this election will become a member of the US House.

Wednesday’s media Tea Party coverage, in its purest form.
I have to agree with Brother Pejman and Sister Academic Elephant: Bluftooni nailed this one cold. But that’s OK: you can’t actually make grown-up stop doing something simply by making crude sexual jokes about them. You can thoroughly tick them off, so let me just thank the media for that as we move on to the next step of turning 600K into a few million. | Read More »
Looking at the day after reporting it is undeniable that the MSM did not want to report the thousands of concerned citizens protesting excessive government Change. My own newspaper posted an small article on the tax day rally in the business section with no metion of the article on the front page. I have talked to other concerned people that did not know that the | Read More »
Probably the same place where mine is, kid.
The first photo there at Point of a Gun there says it all, really: Although she did a better job at coloring the horse than I would have been able to manage. Some more round-ups/local coverage here, here, here, here, here, here, here& here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Don’t expect to see Jon Stewart whale on Susan Roesgen again.
You probably remember Susan Roesgen from yesterday: she was the one who got so peeved when the person that she interviewed turned out to be not on-script. Voluntary propagandists often aren’t, when dealing with messy reality. Anyway, she’ll probably be lionized by CNN for her “bravery” to standing up to people yelling back at somebody with a video crew trying to browbeat them, so watch | Read More »

We Have A Winner! Absolutely, Positively WORST Tea Party Day Coverage in the Galaxy
Okay, we weren’t expecting much of the local news media up here behind the Maple Curtain. Among the three local television outlets, the largest of them has nothing at all. The combined Fox/ABC (separate stations, but merged news team) has a small and anodyne story. But the national prize for obtuse media bias has to go to….
Some of the videos from the DC Tax Day Tea Party.
I have a bunch more, and I will be putting them up, but four and I’m bleary-eyed. They’re also mostly after the fold. This is Rebecca Wales, one of the organizers of the event, and also affiliated with Smart Girl Politics. She had a busy day.
