When is a Compromise not a Compromise?
As Daniel Mitchell from Cato notes, there is a lot to love and a lot to hate about the deal that was worked out to extend the current tax rates.

I have grown weary of hearing the calls for bi-partisanship. The calls for “reaching across the aisle” and “bucking your party.” And yes, I’m even tired of that sacred word that hushes the most stubborn of partisans: Compromise.

The conservative woman is at the same time underestimated and misunderstood by the national media and leftists in general. Often, liberals will poke fun at the conservative woman, whom they believe has resigned herself to subservience to the patriarchal dreams of conservative men. At the RedState Gathering in Austin, TX this past weekend, I had the opportunity to view a fascinating film. “Fire From the Heartland” is | Read More »
