Imagine this scenario:
You're the stockholders in a huge multi-trillion dollar company that provides services for hundreds of millions of people all over the country. These services include police protection, fire protection, teachers in various schools, guards in prisons, and even arbitration services in…Continue

Budget Policy: Even if we don't raise the debt ceiling, enough revenue will still come in to the Treasury to pay our interest, our bonds and essential services. The government will not shut down— only its ability to borrow.
Like the fiscal cliff, the dangers of hitting the debt…Continue
Establishment types like Gingrich have been blaming the "crazy" Tea Party radicals for all of these problems, but the Tea Partiers look to me like the only ones who know what they're doing. Ted Cruz, just elected to the Senate with Tea Party support, explains why Republicans should follow a different part of Gingrich's  example, says Robert Tracinski, editor of “The Tracinski Letter.”
‘You fast-forward to the debt…Continue

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on December 12, 2012 ushered in yet another round of quantitative easing, with the central bank planning to purchase an additional $45 billion worth of “longer-term Treasury securities” on top of the $40 billion worth of mortgage-backed securities (MBSs) the Fed has been purchasing on a monthly basis since September. The newly adopted measure is meant to fill…Continue

In Obama’s “plan” presented last week by tax cheat Timmy Geithner, are some just crazy ideas.
Obama, who ran on raising taxes by $800 billion dollars is NOW demanding $1.6 TRILLION in tax…Continue
Did you hear about this? America has a Dictator now!
In the WSJ, they reported on Obama's press conference yesterday. One of his proposals is to allow HIM to automatically increase the debt limit -- without Congressional approval! Folks, we now have a dictator -- the Dictator of Debt! He's proposing to end the debt ceiling by giving himself unlimited power to spend without Congressional approval. Wow! This is truly unprecedented!
Here is the story:
Obama Wants Power to…

November 6th, 2012.
Obama vs Romney. Socialism vs Capitalism. Free stuff vs Freedom. Arrogance vs Humility. Corruption vs Competence. Bigger government vs Smaller government. Community Organizer vs Successful Businessman. Appeasement vs Strength. Lies vs Integrity.

What does Obama have left?
He’s running on empty.
The choice could not be more clear.
Mitt Romney is a man of character.
Obama, a man who’s only campaign rhetoric now is character assassination. Last week, his Chicago thugs recruited Gloria Allred to try…Continue

With 14 days to go until election day, Obama has finally unveiled his NEW and IMPROVED plan for the next 4 years.
The empty chair and opened an empty binder.
It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Over the…Continue

As we speed toward the November 6th election and even faster toward the next presidential debate, I believe there is but a single question which Mitt Romney could pose that would virtually bring the Obama campaign, not to mention his Canadian made bus…To a screeching halt.
Romney would need to preface the single simple question with a…Continue

That’s the topic of tonight’s first debate between the contenders for the presidency.
Obama will be spinning faster than the centrifuges in Iran. He’s tried NOT to talk about Domestic Policy as the economy continues to drag itself along, barely alive.
For weeks. If not months, Obama has…Continue

Tomorrow, in the “Weekend Edition,” I’ll tackle the livid part of things but, for now, we should just be thankful that we’ve survived another week.
While the whole world seems to be going to hell in a hand bag in the Middle East and the planet’s despots were spewing…Continue

That it happened was not at all surprising but, WHEN it happened…THAT was astounding.

“Government is the great fiction by which everybody seeks to live at the expense of everybody else.” Frederic Bastiat (1848), a man of few words yet much wisdom, offers up his definition of government and sums up our circumstances well.
We have watched this way of thinking playing out across Europe and the United States. Decades in the making, the promises made by our ‘benevolent’ governments can no longer be kept. The unholy alliance between men who desire to consume more…Continue
