Nick, you have lost your patriot's yardstick. Fist on the scales of stupidity and smartness, this, Obama era surpasses anything the USA has done since the Civil War, where the southerners spent their families and fortunes tilting at windmills. The stupidity is the electorate that put Obama and his thieves in office, and the smartness has been the Democratic-Communist party in pulling that off. Anyone who does not recognize these facts is a liar or is too naive to vote. The only cause every American citizen of voting age must follow NOW is to vote democrats out of office this fall. They are the enemy. Period.
Your Lap Dog analogy is seriously unbalanced. That like declaring publicly that your mother is a lap dog for your father.
Washington mentality today is so jaded that they do not see right vs wrong any more. Every act is viewed through the prism of either "Right-for-ME" or "Disadvantageous for ME". For our money supply and government spending, that prism needs instead to be "Right for the country's present and future prosperity". In that vein, the Dollar must be stabilized and rise. Of that there is NO doubt. The economy has recently seriosusy faltered. The cause for emergency stabilization is long past and is now overdone. At the same time serious undermining socialistic measures have been set in place. Or politics ave been badly bent. Only John Boehner and his colleagues have the power; the "Hammer", to stop this trend and to reverse it by holding the debt ceiling, arrest obamacare spending and stop Illegal Immigration. All easily invoked, given the Will of the People (not that of Tyrannical Obama, Reed and Pelosi)
Long ago, I classified B.O. as pure JERK. Now he's proven himself to be a Tyrannical opportunist hell-bent to turn America into a Communist Nation. It's now up to our Republican Representatives to immediately invoke Impeachment proceedings tout de suite.
Blessed are the youth of this moment, as they witness and learn from this LIVE presentation of "Government Tyranny".
Sounds good to me: Run, Scott, Run!

Ages ago (early 1950's to be exact), while at grad school at Penn State, and while perusing their Main library, I came across a book written by Booker T Washington around the turn of the previous century, entitled "The man at the Bottom". On a sabbatical, he had visited some European cities, seeking enclaves of their poor usually whites) in as bad as or worse shape as compared to the black poor of the United States. Those city poor were the more unfortunate. Then, he observed that the USA black poor were fortunate; they were largely rural where self-sufficiency was still possible. The ostensible underachievement of blacks today is due to a very poor environment, education, family and parenting.... FROM BIRTH.
The problem with the Obama Agenda is that it is too little too late, amongst other things... The spending plans that Obama has engendered are all based on economic conditions that disappeared 20or more years ago, when our economy was expanding at about 5% p.a. On that basis the spending he projects now could be supported. In other words, he is like the French Army; well prepared for the previous war fought. Obama is obsolete and does not know it; "The Emperor has no clothes!". Pitiful if it was not so dangerous to our future.
It's the electorate, stupid! Count the number of voters in the "small business" owner/manager population. It's a HUGE as compared to those in "big business". That is what Obama and Democrats believe. The only reason why they are "concerned" about "small business" is as it affects the Dems' electability. One point of deviation is taxation. The same Dem analysts are not always as honest or as correct as they think they are, especially on taxation; ALL businesses are super-aware of taxation consequences. It figures intimately into their daily and fiscal planning. Because of their greed, the Dems will make mistakes there. Note that federal spending cuts have actually HELP small businesses. ERGO, we must do MORE of that! Hallelujah!

To Hell With Charity? (Part 2 of 2)

Why should I any longer contribute to charities? Huh? Considering the US government's benovolence via food stamps, medical work to the uninsured, medicaid to the unable, social security payments far beyond contribution plus earnings (if any on such in-trust), my charity work has been long ago done. If I consider the fraction of my yearly tax burden burden (over 50% on any new earned Income I might make, at least 20% of my gross income, I am far beyond the recommended tithe of 10%. so who's to complain? The guvvermint has taken care of that responsibility for me.
