Unfortunately it will have more effect on middle class than the rich. It may seem like a good deal but it won't be. If deflation kicks in, companies will lose money which will lead to a corresponding spending cuts to save money. That will include job and wage cuts. Deflation would be a disaster for our economy, which isn't exactly robust right now.
Mark Skousen, by the look of his picture, is a very sour unhappy man. So HGW Bush raised taxes, it was a stupid move that his advisors forcefully advocated because the Democratic Congress wouldn't yield. He later regretted making that decision and publicly said so. Bush IS an honorable man and a far better President than the one we are currently cursed with. Bush was a torpedo bomber pilot in the Pacific fighting the Japanese in WW2. His aircraft got shot up while attacking a Japanese ship, he finished the attack and wound up in the ocean, he is a genuine hero. He was Director of the CIA in the 70's at the height of Soviet/US tensions. Interestingly Skousen was an analyst there for a couple of years in the 70's. This column seems like sour grapes and a pointless attack on an honorable man. Skousen's career appears to be primarily in academia and lecturing. Nothing wrong with that, but it does lend itself to my favorite Teddy Roosevelt quote. It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Nice.
A lot of these victims were children and old people. Generally speaking, children can't carry firearms. To imply that these people were stupid is despicable.
I disagree. America HATES Obamacare. If there is one thing politicians pay attention to, it's poll data and that data is against Obamacare.
Right. After the Republican President is sworn in in 2017 and the new super-majority Republican House and Senate are seated, Mitch McConnell can restore the Senate to the traditional way of doing business. Let the Dems taste a couple of years worth of what Harry Reid did.
Natch goes straight to namecalling, a sure sign that facts aren't on your side. Did you even read the article? Besides, the dude died because he wasn't healthy enough to engage in a physical confrontation with multiple police officers. His own health issues led to his demise.
I agree. A Constitutional Amendment limiting the terms of the Senate, House and Supreme Court are an idea whose time has come. I remember the last time term limits were a hot topic, most of the candidates who ran on it decided they were too important to adhere to their promise to leave. JC Watts is a notable exception.
Right on! That bothered me too. Thanks for pointing it out.
Copyright laws and tax laws are apples and oranges. Copyrights protect intellectual property. Taxes are simply the political class taking money that isn't theirs to fund projects that they approve of. Obviously the left disapproves of smoking cigarettes and feels free to tax it wantonly in NYC. Garner broke the law, but it's a stupid law. When the government makes stupid laws, they will be violated. Calling Garner a lifelong criminal because he sold "untaxed" cigarettes is ludicrous.
