Here's a change you could even sell to Democratic voters: cap the total of deductions for home mortgage and state-and-local taxes to the median income. If you are deducting more than $51,000, nobody earning that much will have sympathy for you--but you're probably a Democratic doner living in a big city with a huge mortgage and high state and local taxes.
I was almost killed by a driver who drove according to Mexican rules, not American. I signalled for a left turn and slowed to almost a stop to make it. As I was almost ninety-degrees across the oncoming lanes, the driver behind me swung out to pass and would have T-boned me at 40+ MPH had there not been another lane and a shoulder. You see, in Mexico the left blinker means "please pass me" and you make a left turn by stopping on the right shoulder first! The only way you'll get someone to take a driving course is to offer him a license. It will be without proof-of-citizenship, but the alternative is worse. There's a reason that fire departments overlook all but the most serious crimes when they respond: the consequences of people fearing to call for help are worse than the consequences of overlooking the crime. For the record, I am emphatically not in favor of sanctuary cities. But I don't want the next fellow T-boned at 50MPH because someone saw no value in taking driver training or taking the exam.
The Liberals want to be regarded as Robin Hood when they are in fact the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Words to live by, Mr. Greenberg, words to live by. It would be an honor to know you personally. Our disagreements would be more than matched by agreement on such wisdom as this.

ObamaCare Strikes Again

The payroll tax is Social Security, not Obamacare. They both need attention, but let's keep our targets straight.
Which revolution does Obama believe in: the American Revolution or the sexual revolution?
Obama did not "inherit" the problems. He was hired to fix them. He failed, and made things worse. "When someone can't do the job, you just have to let them go."
Just as an aside: Kodachrome went out of production a few years ago.
Low voter turnout may also reflect voter rolls that have not been purged in decades of dead voters and voters who have moved out of district.

The Candidates' Trade Nonsense

Why is it more expensive to make something here than to make it overseas and ship it across the ocean? Well, for one thing we tax domestic production but not foreign production. We should replace the business income tax (and all related taxes) with a national sales tax. Then people will see how much they are being bled, and overseas producers will face the same costs as domestic producers.
