The response to Embassy Attacks that I WISH we saw
The United States of America believes that all Americans have the right to express themselves as they wish, and that the validity of their thoughts will stand or fall in the free marketplace of ideas. We believe that the strongest and most noble ideas are impervious to distortion and that they rise above iniquity. They appeal to our common humanity and they do not need | Read More »
Who Is Really Stuck With the Bill?
Millionaires and Billionaires need to pay their fair share. Group_of_kids.jpg (JPEG Image, 1280 × 854 pixels). Well here they are. Forty cents out of every dollar the government spends is borrowed. These are the people that will have to pay it back. If We raised taxes on the top 2% and it didn’t cause a recession, that number would go down to thirty seven cents. | Read More »
Cities Are Flickering Out Like Dead Light Bulbs
Imagine Bush was still president. Stockton CA files for bankruptcy. Mammoth Lakes files for bankruptcy. San Bernardino files for bankruptcy. Scranton cuts all city workers to minimum wage. All within a month. What would our papers look like. What would dominate the headlines? Isn’t it true that CNN would start a special airing at 10pm every week night called “American Crisis”? Well, that just happened, | Read More »
Obama Backs Holder, but Shows He Is In It Up To His Neck
Obama has just invoked Executive Privilege to protect Eric Holder! 1) That means that far from this being a botch job from low level ATF people, this program went all the way to the Executive branch! 2) More importantly, no president has ever invoked Executive privilege without having it written about and broadcast by the Mainstream press. As the mainstream press has largely given this embarrassment of | Read More »
I Hope So?
What schooled, professional, political adviser could actually suggest to a sitting president that his best way forward, his political feast, should consist of blaming his predecessor? I know. All of them do, at least for a while, as they get their feet wet, and step away from the policies they ran against, but no one has ever run on that excuse for re-election some three and a | Read More »
A Question of Trust
Obama’s campaign has decided that the election will hinge on whom we will trust more. Whom will we trust more?!? Are they seriously going to go with that??? Let’s see… The Excuse Maker in chief told us just yesterday that all this overspending is Bush’s fault! He really did. He said that Bush baked all this spending in. Poor Obama didn’t realize that since he | Read More »
Why I Am a Republican
I am a Republican BECAUSE I root for the little guy. It is not the prosperous that I love. It is the opportunity that comes with prosperity. Prosperity brings good things to the little guy. It brings a job. It brings innovation. We almost all have cars because someone wanted to figure out how to sell them to the little guy. It pushes | Read More »
If Ashcroft Lied Under Oath
Imagine the front page of the New York Times this morning, if Bush was president and John Ashcroft was the Attorney General. Splashed across the top would be headlines with the scandal that gun happy Ashcroft had lied under oath to protect the administration from the fact that they were arming the Narco-Terrorists south of the border. The follow up story would combine fact with | Read More »
Casualties in the War Against The Rich
We are at war…WITH OURSELVES! Are we ready for the casualties this war will cause? So that Obama can get re-elected? Obama calls for a repeal of the Bush era tax cuts, but only for the top two percent of income earners. These super-productive people need to have more of their income confiscated. They should be punished for their success. After all, they probably won’t | Read More »
How To Extend Unemployment and Have It Cost Less
Obama’s “Jobs” bill includes money for people to remain jobless. Their theory is that money thrown at the jobless is the best use of stimulus, umm, forget that, umm let’s try “magic money making”. Unfortunately their theory is wrong. The CBO has already opined that every dollar spent in that program only returns 90 cents to the economy. Not that Liberals care; the real reason | Read More »
Honesty Is The Best Policy
During the debate last Wednesday, Perry stood by his Ponzi scheme statement, and much to the chagrin of beltway pundits everywhere, he was not struck down by a liberal lightning bolt. It turns out that although Americans want the jobs situation to get better, and they want to see our debt come under control, the most important thing they are looking for in a candidate, | Read More »
Say It Ain’t So
Last night we heard from the president. He had a jobs bill that needed to be passed immediately. The bill has a cost of 450 billion dollars, or 1,350 dollars for every man woman and child in America. This bill would cost more than the entire deficit of the worst year (2004) of deficit spending under Bush. No need to worry. The president says it | Read More »
Does Obama Live On My Couch?
We all know him. He lives large. He has never held a steady job. He is charming, but ever needy. He has grand plans that will put him on the fast track to permanent success. Those plans never quite materialize. He has hit you up for loans before, and you always, always, want to give him the benefit of the doubt. After all, his plans | Read More »
10 Things About Perry That Will Make Liberals Foam at the Mouth
I was speaking to my liberal friend yesterday, and as I was describing Rick Perry, I warned her that he did not have a single redeeming quality that a liberal could get behind. Indeed, I think that Rick is the absolute antithesis of our current president. I thought that just ten differences would highlight the comparison, but in fact everywhere I looked, Perry was the | Read More »
Presenting Perry, the New Official Frontrunner
The Real Clear Politics average now has Rick Perry leading the pack by 1.7 percentage. Amazing since it includes polls from the beginning of the month when Perry wasn’t running. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/us/republican_presidential_nomination-1452.html Intrade agrees, with Perry almost 5 points higher than Romney.
I’m Melting!…I’m Melting!
It seems as though the New York based media has declared Rick Perry a “Flat Earther” for his skepticism about man-made global warming. The day after he made that declaration a democratic operative “Jane the ventriloquist” (Kristin Bunce) force fed her child questions in a stage whisper, such as “How old is the Earth?” in the belief that somehow Rick Perry would not hear her | Read More »
A Conversation About Taxes
My liberal friend showed up today with a Cheshire cat smile. She could not wait to have me explain why in this cruel world a super billionaire like Warren Buffet should pay a mere 17% in income taxes. Even Buffet himself said that his taxes were too low! So I asked her a question. ”Is the income tax for people that pay over 6 million | Read More »
A Bunch of Weird, Extremist Whackadoos
I am seeing it all over the place now. The Tea Party is Extremist. Perry is weird, Bachmann is a weird extremist. The Republican Party is held hostage by inflexible, bible thumping whackadoos. We are in virgin territory here! We have tax payers that do not want to pay off small, out of the way airports for flights that never happen. We have politicians that | Read More »
An Open Letter to Rick Perry
Dear Mr. Perry, Thank you for joining the race for president. Your country needs you. Also thank you for announcing at Red State. That said, you will quickly feel like you have walked under a bucket of Bat Guano. In the day or so that you have announced I have already heard that The Texas Miracle is no miracle at all. Although Texas has done | Read More »
We Are Now a Second Rate Power
Today, a little before 6am, we became a second rate power. It had been coming for a couple of years now. The Senate has not passed a budget in 813 days. We cannot figure out how to pay our bills, and we borrow forty three cents for every dollar that the government spends. We seem to couch our international interests in the interests of others, | Read More »
The Rich Need to Pay More… A lot More!
…And while we are at it, there needs to be more of them. Since we elected Barack Hussein Obama president, this government has been at war with business. They pledge to increase TAX PERCENTAGES so that “Millionaires and Billionaires can pay their fair share.” During the election, Obama agreed that an increase in the capital gains rate might net no gains at all, even perhaps | Read More »
Wisconsin is a Game Changer
The recall vote in Wisconsin deserves all of our attention. This is not a local event. This is a national event. Right now the national pro-labor forces are consolidating their power on six districts in Wisconsin. That means an army of pro-labor volunteers and a ton of pro-labor money, intent on buying or bullying there way to power. Why? Why here in this normally blue | Read More »
Yes! Perry will be getting in!
I am no huge believer in coincidences, and we have the mass resignation of all the top Gingrich people from a campaign that was stuck on “cruise” control, at the same time that a Perry staffer leaked the Governor has decided to enter the 2012 race. Coincidence? I think not. Ron Johnson has already run Perry’s successful gubernatorial campaigns, and Dave Carney comes from his | Read More »
How About Another Snickers Bar?
The New York Times, and especially Paul Krugman, continue to force feed us the hypothesis that we can fix our economy merely by spending more money. According to Krugman, we can tax the rich. That one or two percent of the population have an almost unlimited ability to pay for whatever ails the nation, and our access to this pot of gold is only denied | Read More »
Rick Perry for President
Rumors have re-surfaced that Rick Perry is considering a run for President in 2012. Limbaugh announced that he would be the exciting candidate. Well… I hope so, but as Yogi Berra might say, “Its getting late early.” Rick’s campaign manager, Rob Johnson was already snapped up by Newt, and presumably is hard at work extracting Newt’s foot from his mouth. This early part of the | Read More »
