The chief of the Atlanta Federal Reserve said on Wednesday that the unemployment rate is actually 16%, “If one considers the people who would like a job but have stopped looking…”. Discouraged workers are one of the dirty little secrets of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). It’s a secret the Obama administration is happy [...]

Max Baucus (D-MT), the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and member of the bi-partisan “group-of-six”, explained to the press the Chairman’s mark of his health care bill. This version has not been accepted by the Finance Committee nor the gang-of-six members and there are positive and negative sentiments being expressed from both sides of the isle.
Capitalism is the new “ism”. It is the thing we are all being told to hate, abhor, avoid, and destroy. It’s the “c-word”. The centrist, elitist mobs are trying to show that capitalism has failed by singling-out CEOs? What about the hundreds of thousands of small-to-medium sized business owners that are true entrepreneurs. The liberals [...]
I hope this gets to the parents of every one of these kids and they immediately unseat the entire school board. There are many positive messages in the video, and every single one is tied to an Obama campaign phrase (Hope, Change, Yes we can).
Joe Conason, author and columnist for the New York Observer, plants the “R” word on Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh in a recently published article entitled, “The Racist Truth About Beck and Limbaugh”. His assertions are obviously incorrect. Considering the recent realization by the New York Times that their content may be “left-of-center” it’s understandable [...]
As recently as last week, congressional liberals have been saying that republicans don’t have any ideas and therefor have not put any health care legislation on the table. Well, before the August recess, a bill was introduced in the house and is certainly a GOP-sponsored health care reform bill. While far-from-perfect, it is perhaps the [...]
Perhaps a little alarmist, it’s probably a hoax video, but some underlying themes rate contemplation [Story Link]. The SDR as a replacement for the dollar, the huge increase in SDR reserves (1000%) [IMF Link]. I think that link is saying that the SDR will go from 21.4 to 204.1 billion between August 28th and September [...]
Did you ever want to send an urgent message to every member of Congress, ensuring delivery to their offices on Capitol Hill and letting them know they are being watched? Is that time now? If so, a bold new program might be just what you are looking for. [Read More]
I realize that I would have to wait in a fairly long line to call Ron Paul a paranoid, old-thinking, isolationist psycho, and I’d gladly take the wait just to have the opportunity. But, Paul has been pushing for a congressional audit of the Federal Reserve for more than two decades and he might just [...]
There has been much capitalism-bashing going on in the media. Clearly the anti-caps have no idea what they are against and even less of an idea of what they are for. I don’t have a lot to add to this well-thought, well-written paper by Dr. Ronald Nash. I just know I’ll be looking for even [...]
In August, we watched as sales of existing homes drop by 2.7%. Experts were expecting an increase. Due to the fact that 30% of all home sales this year were by first-time home buyers, the National Association of Realtors has begun a campaign designed to influence congress to put more taxpayer subsidies into the housing market.
Anarchists, environmental groups, and other left-wing radical groups led the way for anti-capitalism protests in Pittsburgh on Thursday. Reasons for the march were varied. Several groups were there to enforce messages of lowering CO2 emissions. Others were protesting the situation in Burma, the fact that 20 people control the global economy, social justice, pushes for [...]
For months we have been fed several mis-truths, myths, and outright lies about health care. It is certainly worthwhile to evaluate all the individual frauds, but we may be missing the forest for the trees.
The delta smelt has taken on a vicious campaign against California food growers. The smelt have collectively contacted their representatives and senators to let them know that if more water is not diverted into their rivers, the congresspeople will be voted out. The “Smelts for Obama” Political Action Committee has promised all of its resources [...]
There have been myriad posts recently about how our current leadership is apologizing for us, alienating our allies and endearing our enemies. What these articles have not made clear is how many friends we are ditching and how vehemently we are befriending the violent totalitarians of our day. Just today, press secretary Robert Gibbs spent [...]
