Obama And The Failure Of Capitalism

When Obama says that cutting taxes and regulations doesn’t work, what in the world is he talking about? Everything works. The question is, for whom does it work, and how well? Collectivism works exceedingly well for politicians but it destroys the lives of millions of people on the dole who might otherwise become productive citizens.

Perpetual Revolution

As the election season revs up, bull-slinging, the favorite sport of the criminal class east of the Potomac, is in full bloom. They know, through experience, that slinging a decorative array of fecal matter against the wall can win over a significant portion of the electorate — particularly those who don’t know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Tyranny Of The Majority

The question no Republican seems interested in asking is: What gives any elected official the authority to increase taxes on American citizens whenever he has an urge to hand money to selected groups of his choosing? The Constitution doesn’t say that it’s the duty of the American citizen to play the role of a docile cow waiting to be milked whenever politicians decide they need more money.

Surviving The Republican Establishment

There are at least two conflicting views of the Occupy Wall Street mob. One is that the media are overplaying the protests and that they are much ado about nothing. At the other extreme is the view that the protests are the start of a worldwide left-wing revolution promoted by communists, union Mafiosos and a variety of down-with-the-rich misfits.

Splitting The U.S. In Half

Every year or two, progressive New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg actually says something I agree with, like when he recently warned that there could be riots in the streets of America if the economy doesn’t improve. On his weekly radio show, Bloomberg said that a lack of jobs is causing people to become desperate. “The damage to a generation that can’t find jobs,” explained Bloomberg, “will go on for many, many years.”

Reclaiming The American Dream

One of the many patriotic slogans that has become popular as the 2012 election campaigns swing into full gear is “reclaiming the American Dream.” But in order to reclaim something, you must first understand what it is, and I can tell you with certainty that the American Dream is not what power-focused politicians would like you to believe it is.

Make Way For The Marco Rubio Birthers

My, my, look what we have here: Marco Rubio Birthers crawling out from under their collectivist rocks, sensing it’s payback time for the Birthers who have been challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility for more than three years. But there’s a huge difference between these two Birther groups. To this day, no one has seen proof that Obama was born in the United States.

Achieving A ‘Grand Bargain’

In picking the last three members of the new super committee on deficit reduction, Nancy Pelosi said: “We must achieve a grand bargain that reduces the deficit by addressing our entire budget, while strengthening Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.” What, exactly, does she mean by a “grand bargain?” Clearly, it’s code for Republicans caving in again and doing what Democrats want them to do: increase the deficit even more.

Just Who, Exactly, Is Delusional?

Isn’t it remarkable how the left is railing on and on about how the Tea Party members of Congress held the debt-ceiling talks hostage by demanding that there be no tax hikes? They have even referred to them as terrorists and suicide bombers, malcontents who ignored the heartfelt pleas of that paragon of unity, Barack Obama, to tone down the rhetoric after the Tucson shootings.
