“Patriotic” Wealth Redistribution

    Throughout the past several months I have repeatedly heard the claim that Senator Barack Obama will be giving a significant tax cut to lower and middle class families. This claim has been made by the mainstream media (for example Charles Gibson mentioned it in his interview of Sarah Palin) and by the surrogates from the Barack Obama campaign. It is even contained in Mr. Obama’s | Read More »

    Mr. Ed’s Musings

    Random thoughts from an often warped mind…. Just once, I’d like to hear a political pundit finish this overused phrase as follows: “You know, at the end of the day…..I go to sleep.” Just once, I’d like to see a political pundit who uses the phrase: “I was struck by….” actually get struck by some object. I’m forming the NANL, the National Association of Non-Lobbyists, | Read More »

    Joe Biden: More Hypocritical Than Most

    Last October, Barack Obama explained why he did not wear an American flag pin on his lapel: “The truth is that right after 9-11 I had a pin,” Obama said. “Shortly after 9-11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security. | Read More »

    Biden’s Forced Patriotism

    On Good Morning America we got a lesson in patriotism from Joe Biden, who said paying higher taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthy Americans. “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.” First, imposing higher taxes on so-called “wealthier” Americans (even when the spokeman | Read More »

    Biden: “People of the government, by the government, FOR the government…”

    Joe Biden thinks socialism is patriotic. Observe: Biden wants to “take money [from people who make more then $250,000] and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.” But “to put something back” generally means “to restore something to its former place of residence; to return something to that place from whence it came, whether it came voluntarily or was removed by force.” In | Read More »

    Breaking Down Obamanomics

    Before you read the rest of this article, you need to know a couple of things about me. First, I am a middle class American, struggling to make it paycheck to paycheck to raise my family. Second, I failed economics in high school…twice. Now that I’ve cleared the air on that, lets continue with my opinions (facts really, as I eventually passed economics) about our | Read More »

    Many Happy Returns

    Byron York over at NRO has a good piece on the paltry charitable giving of Joe Biden. According to ten year’s worth of Biden tax returns, the senator and his wife contributed about one-eighth of one percent (0.0015%) of what they earned to charity, well below the two percent average of American households. During that time Biden’s adjusted gross income (AGI) ranged from about $215,000 | Read More »

    Greenspan says we can’t afford McCain’s tax cuts

    Alan Greenspan says we can’t afford McCain’s cuts without a commensurate reduction in spending. Alan Greenspan says the country can’t afford tax cuts of the magnitude proposed by Republican presidential contender John McCain — at least not without a corresponding reduction in government spending.”Unless we cut spending, no,” the former Federal Reserve chairman said Friday when asked McCain’s proposed tax cuts, pegged in some estimates | Read More »

    Wonder why we are losing jobs to other Nations?

    Wonder why we are losing jobs to other Nations? One reason is our ridiculous corporate tax rate. Corporations currently pay a 40% tax rate. That is higher than all but three nations in the world (Japan-40.69%, Kuwait-55%, and UAE-55%). Our tax rate is over 14% over the worldwide average.Since consumers actually pay all corporate taxes through the price of the product or service that means | Read More »

    The Democrats can swim

    **Open mouth insert foot. With all the misspoken or misinterpreted statements from the democrats lately one thing is for sure, they are good swimmers. They win the gold medal for the backstroke. Now the Obama campaign staff is trying to put out the flames from the statement made by Obama in NH. Everyone paying under $250,000 will pay lower taxes, like in the 1990’s under | Read More »

    NJ GOVERNOR CORZINE MISSING IN ACTION

    By Matt Rooney | September 12, 2008blog.savejersey.com It looks like Tom Kean has called Jon Corzine’s bluff. Yesterday, The Gloucester County Times strongly urged Governor Corzine to debate a state Republican leader on the issue of toll hikes at the Governor’s upcoming community forums. Corzine’s new toll scheme, aiming to triple fares on all three major toll roads, would constitute a severe economic blow for | Read More »

    Lawyerspeak Meets Presidential Politics

    In the law, we might call this an admission against interest: Democrat Barack Obama says he would delay rescinding President Bush’s tax cuts on wealthy Americans if he becomes the next president and the economy is in a recession, suggesting such an increase would further hurt the economy. Nevertheless, Obama has no plans to extend the Bush tax cuts beyond their expiration date, as Republican | Read More »

    Obama and O’Reilly talk taxes

    **Apparently, Obama’s main message is that when the Government has soooooo very many things to pay for, they have to get the money somewhere….. Obama wants the Government to pay for health care, mortgages, college education, “pay your bills,” and apparently whatever else anyone can think of. I don’t know about you, but when I was a child, my parents paid for my health care. | Read More »

    Are Body Parts Next?

    According Bill O’Reily… Obama believes that the federal government should be in control of income distribution and, to some extent, should regulate the free marketplace. That is a classic liberal position and the candidate promotes it well. And… …the senator also believes that poor Americans have a basic right to free health care and monetary supplements from the government with no strings attached. The American | Read More »
