  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    Ronald Reagan


    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    Gary Lloyd


    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Milton Friedman


    The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money

    Alexis de Tocqueville


    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09


    My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

    Barack Hussein Obama


    “And the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history”

    Nancy Pelosi, Election Night 2006


    A community organizer can't bitch when communities organize.

Some people still don’t get it

My 16 year old son is interested in current events, but he often asks me for my analysis of what is happening.

Today, he mentioned that he read that some on the left attribute the “Tea Parties” to racism. That is, the “right wingers” are prejudiced, and are protesting just because President Obama is black (actually, he’s bi-racial).

If some people truly believe this, they are ignoring what the mainstream media has, for the most part, avoided reporting. That is, the Tea Parties yesterday were not based on displeasure over the color of the President’s skin, nor were they only made up of “right wingers”.

The fact is, the demonstrations were attended by working class people who are fed up with the spend-and-then-tax politicians who are pissing away our future, as well as that of at least the next 2 upcoming generations. Yes, there are more and more in this country who are finally starting to pay attention; I just hope it’s not too late.

Sure, many of those attending may be classified as conservative, but there were a great many protestors that were previously Obama supporters and voters, and now that they’ve seen his true agenda, they realize their mistake.

So the left-wing media can carry on with their “tea bag” jokes, and their condescension and disgust towards those protesting. But when next year’s general election is finished, I sure hope they don’t have the gall to say they are surprised at the results…

  1. How odd is it that we are told not to spend what we don’t have yet our government spends TRILLIONS more than they make in taxes and continue to tax the heck out of us yet remind us not to live beyond OUR means!!!! I think we need a movemtn to remove special retirement, health insurance and all of the other perks with being member of our national government they need to worry about their future like we worry about ours’ maybe then they will pull their heads out of the nether-regions and fix the mess the got us into… I believe in CHANGE toss all of their butts to the curb and hire a bunch of REAL working men and women who pay their taxes, and their OWN bills plus give a damn about something other than themselves and see how fast we can turn this country around!!!!
