How will Gore et al shelter their wealth from the IRS?
We all know our taxes are going to skyrocket thanks to cap and tax, health care costs, etc. As a result, a lot of Democrats and their high-ranking supporters will make a ton of money by picking our pockets. Al Gore comes to mind. Surely, Gore et al. have plans to protect their windfall profits from the IRS. What about Pelosi, Reid, and of course | Read More »
Reverse Course to Right Our Economy
Can we just admit that the Stimulus was an $800 billion mistake that did absolutely nothing to help the economy or stimulate jobs? Can we admit that Keynesian economics are, at best, a scalpel being wielded as though a they were a machete? Can we admit that no centralized government planning will ever lead to greater economic prosperity? Because if you really can’t admit that, you really | Read More »
US Monetary Policies Driving Economy Towards Collapse
According to Jake Towne, a constitutional conservative who is running as an independent for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 15th district, the inflation of the fiat dollar is driving down its value against gold and silver, which are in their own right internationally recognized currencies. This scheme, supported by White House National Economic Council director Larry Summers, results in the deflation of real wealth for workers and | Read More »

The Definition of Greed
What is greed? The dictionary defines greed as greed n. An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth. (greed. (n.d.). The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition. Retrieved September 07, 2009, from Dictionary.com website: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/greed) I have a problem with this definition, from one perspective: Everyone has more than they “need.” | Read More »
Changing Our Conservative Vocabulary
Something has been bothering me for some time about the vocabulary conservatives and libertarians have been using to describe liberal economy policy. We hear it on radio from Boortz and Hannity and television from O’Reilly; we read it on blogs by Thomas Sowell and in newspaper columns by George F Will.
The term I refer to is “wealth redistribution,” called for throughout history by Marx, Lenin, Castro and Chavez. Liberals in America don’t use the term, knowing that it will bother conservatives and many moderates. Unfortunately, it is unconvincing to many, especially liberals, that such a beast as wealth distribution would be a bad thing.
After all, “wealth redistribution” is just taking money from the evil, awful “rich” and giving it to those poor, needy “less fortunate.”

Oh, the humanity! Another bail-out is needed!!
Oldest private black university in US cuts jobs The nation’s oldest private, historically black university is cutting jobs and reducing salaries to close a $2.8 million budget shortfall. Obama could help them out by donating his next round ofroyalities from his book sales. Now that would be spreading the wealth! Or how about Oprah! $2.8 Mil – that is walking around money for Oprah.

Obama’s True Agenda
For months I have been concerned with Obama’s view of Government’s role in citizens’ lives. I have always thought of him as being Socialist, and that worries me. But what worries me more is “why” he has socialist views. I have waited to hear someone, anyone in the media mention this, but our world today is so politically correct, that the mere whisper of an | Read More »
Obama promises CHANGE (in your pocket)
Average Joe doesn’t identify with having “wealth” to spread around. Maybe the counter message would be better understood by voters if it were explained as Obama/Pelosi/Reid “spreading your income around”. That’s Obama’s real message of change, after their income redistribution/taxation and big spending plans hit the economy you’re left with “change in your pocket”

Why I cannot support the Democratic Party
There is a verse in the bible that describes the last days of earth. It says that the people made that which was evil good and good evil. It describes much of what is going on in the society and in this political race today. The rabid left Hollywood Democrats of which Barak Obama has aligned himself have declared that it is evil to keep | Read More »
Is a significant income disparity of any consequence? Other than stirring up envy among the “have-nots” does it affect anyone? Does the total of one man’s bank account have any impact on someone else’s lifestyle? Why can’t Americans point to a disparity in incomes and say “that is proof that success is achievable in America”? Maybe the most important question is whether or not the | Read More »
