Sic Transit Gloria Green Jobs.
So… Thanks to the Democrats, we spent 800 billion on a stimulus package that didn’t work. Thanks to the Democrats, we allocated 92 billion of that money (meant to be spent on, well, things that would stimulate the economy) on renewable energy policies. Thanks to the Democrats, we’ve managed to spend only about 20 billion of that money in a year and a half (remember; | Read More »
Rasmussen on California: Whitman and Boxer up
Rasmussen Reports has two new polls out: one on the race for Governor between Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman, and the other on the Senate race between Democrat Barbara Boxer and Republican Carly Fiorina. I don’t think the results they show are compatible. If one is right, I think the other is wrong.

Ms. Magazine Says It’s Not The Economy, Stupid. It’s Your Girly Bits
Last year, the Left floated the idea that unemployment is really super fun and tried to pass it off as FUNemployment. That spin eventually failed, because people not living in their parents’ basements and fiddling with their iPods realized it really isn’t all that enjoyable not being able to, you know, pay their bills.

The internet bubble burst, and the economy tanked…Obama is silent here as well. 9/11, and the costs associated with a call to a war he still wages? Nada. Through | Read More »

President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Alvin Greene: The Three Economic Stooges
Evidently, not only are Democrats not creating or saving jobs, but it appears as if they are in cahoots to put The Onion out of business. You see, it is impossible to satirize people who are self-parodies themselves. The latest example is Alvin Greene, the current Democrat candidate for Senator in South Carolina, who recently announced in an interview with The Guardian his plan to | Read More »
