Many thanks to the Alert Reader who sent me the following story about monkeys. I think you’ll agree, it has important lessons for us about how to make changes in Washington.
*Are you a “taker”? If you’ve been even halfway successful, apparently our president thinks so. During a town hall address last week, President Barack Obama said, “[My opponents’] basic view is that no matter how successful I am, no matter how much I’ve taken from this country… somehow I now have no obligation to people […]
On April 27, 1789, a criminal act took place that led to one of the most amazing ocean voyages in history, as well as numerous books, films and popular songs. The criminal act was a mutiny on a British Royal Naval ship, the HMS Bounty. Fletcher Christian led the revolt against his commanding officer, William […]
*Congratulations! Now you get to keep some. Shame on me. I failed to mention that Tax Freedom Day occurred on Tuesday, April 12.

Read this article to learn more about the battle over a paltry portion of the Federal budget…
*Ben Bernanke’s foreign bank bonanza. Documents from the Federal Reserve confirm that the central bank loaned more than $70 billion to foreign banks during the 2008 financial crisis—including some $26 billion to a bank owned by Moammar Gadhafi’s Central Bank of Libya. The news is sure to spur increased calls for an investigation of the […]
Arghhh! It just happened again. No, I’m not referring to the billions of dollars hard-working taxpayers have to send to Uncle Sam by this April 18. I’ve become almost numb to the pain of that annual reckoning. But what still gets my goat is when someone—especially a near and dear family member—celebrates receiving a tax […]
Why on earth should this country spend millions of dollars, risk hundreds of our servicemen’s lives and end up killing and maiming innocent women and children (and some adult men who admittedly aren’t so innocent) for “regime-change” in Libya?
