The payroll tax gambit, eggs and the GOP miscalculation

The phrase “couldn’t find their butts with both hands tied behind their backs” comes to mind as I analyze the feat of stupidity undertaken by the leaders of the House and Senate in the Social Security revenue cut proposal (a.k.a. payroll tax holiday). A news outlet I do not often quote, The New York Times,  has… Read More »

The Super Committee Smoke Screen: A Raging Success As Planned

I keep hearing that Congress’s Super Committee has failed due to the fact they could not agree on the “spending cuts” and “revenue enhancements” they were “supposed” to make. The sinister truth of this unconstitutional committee is that the perceived failure is actually a successful conclusion. You see, the whole idea at the outset was… Read More »

I’ve heard a few libertarians who get a little bit defensive of how the Occupy Wall Street movement is treated, and for a while I wondered why that was. Every conservative I know has been very critical for obvious and good reasons. As a conservative libertarian, I usually reserve judgment, but as usual I fall… Read More »

A Message from Senator Jim DeMint: Harry Reid Nukes the Senate

 Fellow Conservatives: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) fundamentally weakened the United States Senate yesterday in a desperate attempt to block a vote on the President’s stimulus bill.
