Even With Recent Losses, Congressional Democrats Double-Down

Ah, the ever famous black-jack bet.  Good or bad, not knowing what the outcome might be the gambler doubles his bet.  Damn the consequences.

Remember When They Warned Us That Japan Might Not Always Buy Our Debt

I was young, but I remember the news stories and the dire warnings from family friends, parents and uncles: Japan owns us .. and they may not always want to.  Yeah, that was a long time ago and a major player has changed, but the warning is still relevant. Before the Japanese asset price bubble burst (sound familiar? – yeah, ...

Debt Commission Almost Gets It Right

After reading the Co-Chair’s draft, proposed, possible recommendations that might, if lucky, ever become real – report.  I posted a “just the facts ma’am” article earlier but wanted to add my thoughts on the proposal.

Liberals: Americans Didn’t Know What They Were Doing When They Voted

Obama, Pelosi and a number of extreme-left pundits have spent the last several days trying to convince American voters that they voted for for the wrong reasons and that they probably didn’t even understand why they were voting.  Obama has said many times that he believes that progressives just failed to get a message out that voters could understand, Pelosi ...
