Bootleggers And Baptists: Time To Cut Spending In Washington

Given his first-hand experience with the massive size, pettiness, cost, and overreach of deep-state government in Washington, it is time for Trump to cut about 25% of it. Apparently, Mueller’s FBI has so much money they try to fabricate testimony from Russian oligarchs. If government continues to grow at this rate, expect 10 policemen withContinue reading “Bootleggers And Baptists: Time To Cut Spending In Washington”

Just Another Week In The Life Of Our ‘Very Stable Genius’

Trump’s favorable poll numbers went up last week. Contrary to what you hear from the mainstream media, his numbers are higher than Obama’s were at the same point in his presidency. Trump has disrupted Washington, which is what he was sent there to do. Tax and regulation cuts have ignited the economy, unemployment is atContinue reading “Just Another Week In The Life Of Our ‘Very Stable Genius’”

Tariffs Cost Americans Money And They Seldom Work

Every bad political idea starts with a false premise. The “Affordable Care Act” lie, that we had an awful health care system and government could fix it and save families “$2,500 a year,” spawned the ObamaCare disaster. The Bush-era intelligence agencies’ fibs were that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and we had toContinue reading “Tariffs Cost Americans Money And They Seldom Work”

All Shook Up

The day comes when all the kids are gone. We sent our youngest kid off to NYU, the middle one back to the U of M to see what they can do with him, and our oldest to medical school this week. At times like this parents worry about many things to do with theirContinue reading “All Shook Up”

Dems Try To Rein In Rangel

The Democrats have an impending problem surfacing at an inopportune time, the investigation of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) by the House Ethics Committee.  This comes as a surprise to many — the House has an Ethics Committee? “House ethics” is an oxymoron, much like the “Senate intelligence” that led up to the wars in IraqContinue reading “Dems Try To Rein In Rangel”

Reason For Optimism – Kind Of

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”  —Thomas Jefferson Pessimists see the glass half empty; optimists see the glass half full. I guess I am somewhere in between, because I see a glass half full of water and think, “Hey, there is ample room for bourbon!” We haveContinue reading “Reason For Optimism – Kind Of”

BP Should Pay, Baby, Pay

BP disclosed yet another setback in its frantic attempts to control the oil spill that will go down in history as one of America’s worst environmental disasters. There has not been this much oil and slime spilled in a body of water since former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich went swimming in Lake Michigan. So far,Continue reading “BP Should Pay, Baby, Pay”

Team Obama Rounds Up The Villains

To implement its agenda, Team Obama develops a narrative according to its needs. Then they send the marching orders out to their brethren in the media, who faithfully run stories sympathetic to the goal du jour. “Deal with us or we take you down,” Obama tells his targets in his best Chicago-style politico-speak. “If youContinue reading “Team Obama Rounds Up The Villains”

Create Wealth, Don’t Redistribute It

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.”  — Thomas Jefferson Lost in President Barack Obama’s rhetoric, which presupposes the evils of capitalism and capitalists to sell his statist/socialist agenda, is the fact that free-market capitalism is a far more virtuous and moral system. HeContinue reading “Create Wealth, Don’t Redistribute It”
