Eliminate the corporate income tax
The President made a big deal about and frequently referred to “Invest[ing]” during his State of the Union speech (or so I heard, since I didn’t watch it). Lots of “investing” in more government programs and top-down, centralized economic planning. Lots of “investing” in social safety nets. Lots of “investing” in more pet projects for politicians. Actually, the President was talking about “spending”, but his | Read More »
Make the Bush Tax Rates Permanent in 2011
The 2-Year tax rate extension negotiated between Obama and some Republican congress-critters looks like it will get through and be passed. But this will not be before Nancy Pelosi’s pork brigade finishes larding it up with a bunch of noxious spending to make it more palatable to her gang in the House and Harry Reid’s gang in the Senate. As per plan, it will also | Read More »
BOHICA!- Bend Over, Here It Comes Again.
Nineteen hundred pages… one point one trillion dollars. The DeMarxists are obviously going for a Guinness record on spending. An incredible 6,600 earmarks. This isn’t pork. It’s sausage manufacture on a grand scale. This is economics, Democrat style. Everyone take a good long look. God willing, this is their last gasp. There were a lot of conservatives unhappy with the tax compromise. I also would | Read More »
Recovery? What Recovery?
Think about it. The bickering in Washington about whether to extend the Bush tax cuts is deeper than whether or not one class benefits or suffers. The tax cuts signify whether our economy can piece itself back together or remain stagnant. According to the Department of Labor, four hundred and thirty six thousand unemployment claims were filed last week. The unemployment rate has been flirting | Read More »

Death of On-Line Shopping
In an article by Sarah Weinman, “Texas Sends Amazon a $269 Million Sales Tax Bill”,we see the beginning of the end for On-Line Shopping.

The Fallacy of Robin Hood Economics: We Can Do Better Than Robbing the Rich to Pay the Poor
In every entry-level economics classroom you will almost always encounter the same scene. The front row will be dominated by opinionated and vocal liberals who feel it is their moral duty to set the class straight on the failings of American capitalism. The middle rows will be a nice blend of both conservative and liberal students who are trying their best to earn an A | Read More »
Ms. Martha King: Will He Hear Me on November 3rd?
“Good morning, Ms. King.” “Hi, Baby. Jesus loves you!” “Yes, ma’am. Jesus loves you, too.” Ms. Martha King is one of God’s Beloved. She never changes.

She is the type of | Read More »

The Ultimate Tea Party Candidate – My Interview With Jim Huffman
I recently sat down for a one on one interview with Jim Huffman, perhaps the unlikeliest US Senate candidate in recent memory. Jim is a 65 year old law professor and former Dean of Lewis & Clark Law School. He’s financially secure, and his career is set. He is, in a word, comfortable. He’s no right wing radical, and he’s no politician. But he’s frustrated | Read More »
Dems Tax Plans Could Cut the Legs Out From Beneath Limping Recovery
Contrary to what Democrats would have you believe, it is simply not true that raising taxes is the only way out of our current deficit problems. At best higher taxes could unnecessarily harm the recovery by choking off business growth when other, more economically sound alternatives to reducing our deficits exist. At worst, large tax hikes could doom us to a prolonged crisis and possibly | Read More »
The Largest Tax Hike in American History
Beginning January 1, 2011, American families and small businesses will be saddled with a $3.8 trillion tax increase – the largest tax hike in American history. There are many in Washington who are claiming that these tax increases will only affect the wealthy. Simply put, this is inaccurate. Instead, they will increase the tax liability of almost every American who pays income taxes – including | Read More »
Why Eliminating the Death Tax Matters to You
Most of us, myself included, think the death tax is a burden only for wealthy people who get left exorbitant amounts of money. The following article from the Heritage Foundation explains how it affects everyone, as wealthy people invest less (which means less businesses and jobs) and inherited businesses are often sold or closed, because the people inheriting it don’t have the outright money to | Read More »
Our “Play Doh” Constitution – In Health Care Debate Obama Changes the Meaning to Match His Needs
“For us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase.” ~President Barack Obama, September 2009 Back when Barack Obama and the Dems were trying to sell their massive health care overhaul to the American People, they were feverishly insistent that the individual mandate to buy government approved health insurance was absolutely not a tax. | Read More »
