Mike Shanin on the AIG Bailouts

Mike Shanin wrote some interesting thoughts regarding the AIG Bailouts and Congress’ reaction on his blog:
The reactions from some that bonuses are being paid at AIG, the American International Group, is more egregious than the fact of the bonuses themselves.
Sure people are irritated that a company “bailed out” by the U.S. government is rewarding what [...]

Obama on Leno

This headline discourages me a bit: “Obama to make history with Leno as he becomes the first sitting president to appear on chat show.”
It feels like Obama is still campaigning, even though he’s months into his presidency. He’s going to use the time with Jay Leno to tell the country about his economic recovery plan. [...]

AIG Bailouts…Give us back the money!

I’ve been tuning in and out of some talking heads and reading a few blogs regarding the recent AIG ordeal, you know, how AIG is using government bailout money to pay executives their bonuses? Let me begin by saying I don’t necessarily condone what is going on, but I also don’t condemn it. I find [...]

Broken Promises from our President

From the Wall Street Journal:
President Barack Obama signed a $410 billion spending bill Wednesday that includes thousands of pet projects inserted by lawmakers, even as he unveiled new rules to restrict such so-called earmarks.
At the same time, after Democrats criticized former President George W. Bush’s signing statements, Mr. Obama issued one of his own, declaring [...]

Rush to Failure

Rush to failure sounds like it should be the mantra for Congress, particularly after it being made public that our elected officials passed a 1,000+ page bill that many of them admit to not have read. However, “Rush to Failure” is the new message that Democrats are going to plaster onto a billboard in Rush [...]

Kansans are Fed Up with High Taxes

I received this press release from the Kansas chapter of Americans for Prosperity and thought I’d share it with you:
Study Finds Kansas Fed-Up with High Taxes and Wasteful State Spending
Lower-Income Residents Oppose Tax Hikes, Even if They Don’t Pay
TOPEKA ─ A new survey by the free-market grassroots group Americans for Prosperity finds that 57 percent [...]

Gibbs is a Moron…And do we have Stimulus #2 to worry about?

If you’ve ever visited this blog or listened to the show, you know my thoughts regarding the White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs: He’s a moron. He’s inexperienced and seems quite ignorant at doing his job with any form of success. Maybe he’s a nice, intelligent guy outside of the pressers, but unfortunately for him, [...]

What is the 10th Amendment?

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
In the original Articles of Confederation, a similar provision was present: “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not [...]
