The day has arrived. In about twenty-four hours, the stains of Barack Obama will be wiped clean and honor and dignity will be restored to The White House under President-elect Mitt Romney. It hasn’t been an easy road. Conservatives waged a brutal primary battle that left us with a scarred nominee – Romney – coming [...]
Tag: "federal spending"
Remember when liberals scoffed at the fact that Romney could win more than 60% of the white vote? Not only has Romney successfully tackled that hurdle, and liberals are apparently mad about it. Tom Scocca of Slate Magazine wrote on November 2 about the “tribal appeal” that Mitt Romney has with whites and why “white [...]
Mitt Romney has made the prevention of President Barack Obama’s sequestration plan one of his primary campaign talking points. He’s probably done this for two reasons: it plays well with voters in Virginia and veterans, but it also helps with those who want the U.S. to have the strongest military possible. There’s nothing wrong with [...]
Incumbent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill got a little testy with Dana Loesch, editor of Breitbart’s Big Journalism, during a press conference after Thursday night’s senate debate where Loesch asked the senator about her husband’s business deals, which involved selling tax credits tied to stimulus money. McCaskill’s husband, Joseph Shepard, allegedly conducted these deals in the [...]
The left tells us that there is no way to keep the economy going if federal spending is reduced – they are wrong. On a simplistic and illogical level sure, taking any money out of the economy might shrink it, but that is the same short-term thinking that has led to a non-recovery from the [...]
Last night’s Vice Presidential debate did put more pressure on Vice President Biden, who was tasked with delivering the same old progressive talking points about taxes, foreign policy, abortion, and health care – albeit with a little more spiritedness. However, the pervasive grinning, smiling, and interrupting came off as egregiously arrogant and condescending. Biden [...]
Justen Charters, co-founder of Resistance 44, is sick of Obamanomics. After all, President Obama is “the six trillion dollar man” who “doesn’t have a budget plan” and “basic economics is something he doesn’t understand.” Enjoy! #obamastyle P.S. Justen, you didn’t make this song – somebody else made this happen.
We all got a shot of life Wednesday night from Mitt Romney. I received a lot of flak, and some insults, for my previous post castigating Romney for lacking joie de vivre, but he came out swinging and left the president looking for his teleprompter. While some posted polls in the comment section to show Romney’s campaign [...]
In a bit of new old news, Social Security adds to the federal deficit. This non-shocking piece of news continues to be either ignored or underreported since the political class is petrified of having the geriatric brigade occupying the front lawns of their homes. The current unfunded liability of Social Security is $8.6 trillion [...]
. The US State Department is paying $70,000 to run a television ad in Pakistan. The ad consists of sound bites from statements made by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton following the death of US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The clips are reiterations by the President and Mrs. Clinton that [...]
. The city of Houston, Texas has spent $200,000 of a Department of Homeland Security grant on the production of a six minute video that informs individuals of what to do in the event of a workplace shooting. The creepy video emphasizes three main actions: Run, Hide, and Fight. (continued below video) . The video [...]
During an election, there are few issues that spark controversy and heated debate the way that Medicare does. Just look at how the Democrats have treated the Paul Ryan budget plan for it’s changes to Medicare. But are the Democrats justified in doing so after they passed The Affordable Care Act – or more commonly [...]
. Egan-Jones Ratings Co. downgraded its credit rating for the United States today, dropping the rating down a notch to AA-. The agency said that the third round of large-scale asset purchases (QE3) by the Federal Reserve has the possibility of weakening the US Dollar, which would push up inflation. News broke early Friday morning [...]
Lately, the phrase “Chose your neighbors wisely.” has become increasingly important. For years, the significance as to what the government was doing, or how the government was growing, was a distant thought in my mind because my life itself was so busy and all consuming. Like many people I guess I had the mindset that our government was [...]
