Sequestration Forever!

Sorry for the total lack of posting. I needed a break from the dismal world of politics. The “leadership” we have right now is pretty pathetic and truly painful to watch in action. And the fact they can only seem to work on useless or reckless proposal just underscores how out of gas Big Government […]

DC’s Big Mistake: Assuming American Voters Are Selfish

I am sure the wizards of Congress have their noses up in the air, wondering how anyone could do better than they did now that the so-called fiscal cliff is behind us. But of course, the reason the ‘deal’ is so offensive to Main Street and the GOP base (which is now on the hunt […]

GOP Is A Doomed Party, It Has No Meaning, No Purpose

Last night the nation was left without a political party to protect its long term financial interests. Faced with a chance to stop the generational theft by DC and its greedy, incompetent, robotic need to waste money, the GOP caved.  Don’t blame Speaker Boehner alone, but blame every ‘conservative’ who prostituted their core beliefs to […]

Make America (And Congress) Pay Their Bills – Stop Congress From “Fixing” Their Financial Mess

If you want to see a real fiscal cliff, one that will take this entire nation down for future generations to come, look at THIS cliff – the National Debt cliff: This the real fiscal cliff.

Mitch McConnell were locked in urgent talks late Sunday over the “fiscal cliff” after Democrats offered several significant concessions on taxes, including a proposal to raise rates only on earnings over $450,000 a year.

Please, Let’s Try Out The Clinton Tax Rates

Finally, someone has articulated the sanity behind embracing the so-called fiscal cliff: Don’t get me wrong: It would be better not to raise taxes on anyone, pursue pro-growth tax reform and cut the size of government instead. But that’s not what the American people voted to do last month. Americans cast their ballots for big […]

Fiscal Cliff Nonsense

The Tea Party/Libertarian insurgent voters of 2010 know the best available answer to the stealing of money from future generations is to embrace the so-called fiscal cliff.  All other options are result in more theft and more kick-the-problem-down-the-rode.
