First, there is the problem of the messenger. A messenger can undermine the message of the best message out there. Obama, for example, would have a hard time convincing voters that he’d like to pass a balanced budget amendment, but those darn Republicans just won’t let him. Pig s would have to fly first.
Over the weekend several people asked what was in the various plans and how much would really be cut. Unfortunately details are scant and the plans keep changing. However, anything short of the "grand bargain" has no real substance. It is debatable if the "grand bargain" has substance.
Estonia happens to be in possession of oil shale. And while we have whittled away our time doing the environmental hokey pokey, dithering about where when how and why to develop resources all the while quaking in our boots over the fear that we would invoke the wrath of the Environmental Left, the country of Estonia got down to the business of making oil shale work.
In this week’s Email, Hate Mail and Comments column Odin the Intellectual asks: “Does this racist twit ever write anything serious?” although it’s not immediately clear that he’s not talking about himself; Henry says that we have to use a better message; and Lilly? Well, Lilly is just her usual self.
After the defeat of card check at the legislative ballot box, the former SEIU goon is acting creatively in order to implement portions of card check unilaterally. What would one expect from a guy appointed to his position despite his nomination being rejected by the Senate?
Several months after the Bill Clinton staff moved out of the West Wing in 2001, George W. Bush’s press secretary Ari Fleischer confirmed to the Washington Post that the outgoing liberals had trashed the place.
Maybe by the time it is said and done, we will have a candidate, be it a Perry, a Bachman a Cain or a Paul who will speak truth to power and the American People. Lord knows we haven’t had someone like that in a while. Whoever has the guts to say that in a clear voice has my vote.
Tim Geithner wants to hike taxes on small businesses to help pay the way for people who don’t work at places like small businesses. If Timmy gets his way, if we show a significant enough profit such as more than 250 grand a year, the Marble Mafia will move in and demand an extra piece of the action.
Wednesday's job report from ADP showed that private employers added only 38,000 in May. Home sales have continued to lag, GDP has been revised sharply downward, and inflation has taken a larger bite out of corporate and family budgets. We told you so.
Many countries have restrictions and requirements on doctors, nurses, lawyers etc. Greece carries the idea to extreme. Restrictions will be lifted July 2. That is a much needed maneuver, and the same applies in the US as well.
Everyone wants something, and they want to take it from someone else to get it. In the US, the SEIU is right at the top of the list in wanting to pick the pockets of everyone else for their own self-serving benefit
The public has a right to know who or what is influencing its government. Open Records and Freedom of Information laws are critical to ensuring a transparent and accountable government.
The far left has attempted to portray their elderly hero, Frances Fox Piven, as a lonely shut-in who spends her time knitting mittens and eating Werther’s Originals in her New York apartment. But the truth is that age has not dampened Piven’s appetite for radical socialist political activities.
We discovered once again, as Lincoln once said of a contemporary, that Obama can squeeze the smallest idea into the greatest number of words of anyone who has ever been president. We also learned that when things get really tough and leadership is called for, Obama takes his cues from Hillary, just like the 3AM video from Saturday Night Live.
There is an agency in Washington, D.C. that is aggressively pursuing a plan to increase union power to the detriment of legitimate management and employee interests including the interests of the our country’s principal job creators, small business.
"America is not broke," filmmaker Michael Moore told a group protesting against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's attempts to curb public employee union collective bargaining in Madison over the weekend.
Americans who pride their country for its No. 1 status might consider doing something before its number is up.
As government employee unions continue to rally across the country in support of the Wisconsin protesters, they are becoming completely unhinged. (Being surrounded by hygienically-challenged individuals who continuously shout mind-numbing slogans will do that.)
The good news out of Wisconsin is that public school students' test scores skyrocketed last week, mystifying educators.
Welcome to the reckoning. We have met the fiscal apocalypse, and it is smack dab in the middle of the heartland. As Wisconsin goes, so goes the nation.
President Obama's storytellers recently launched a White House blog series called "Voices of Health Reform," where "readers can meet average Americans already benefiting from the health reform law."
American reality has been turned upside down in just 20 years.
In 2008, Obama didn't see folks declining to buy health care. I'll tell you what I don't see -- $2,500 in savings per family. Not ever.
Facing huge budget difficulties, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been showing other states how to survive -- namely, by taking on the government-employee unions.
