Tweet The Daily Mail has the data to prove what we all knew: a political party that shifts the tax burden to less than 50% of the population, while leaving more than half the population dependent on government largesse, wins in perpetuity (or until the country implodes, whichever comes first).

Tweet The Marin IJ reports that almost $3,000,000 in stimulus money Americans will help the public school district in Ross, California: Ross School has won the federal stimulus fund lottery. School officials learned Friday they would receive a $2.85 million school construction bond tax credit as part of the federal stimulus bill – a credit [...]
Tweet With his typical clarity, Karl Rove explains that it is impossible for President Obama to stick to his “no new taxes” promises if he continues on this ruinous path of government spending: The campaign team is intent upon protecting a pledge driven by its 2008 campaign polls: Mr. Obama promised never to raise taxes [...]
Tweet If you are a young lawyer, struggling to learn what a non-responsive answer really looks like, you can’t do better than this question-and-answer session between Jake Tapper and Presidential press secretary Robert Gibbs. If Gibbs were any slicker, he’d just ooze right out of the room: TAPPER: Robert, in terms of what Geithner and [...]
Tweet In just three paragraphs, Charles Krauthammar explains all of the problems with the health care reform the President so desperately wants passed by August: President Obama premised the need for reform on the claim that medical costs are destroying the economy. True. But now we learn — surprise! — that universal coverage increases costs. [...]
Tweet Do you remember the words in my post title? I sure do, and I wasn’t even very politically aware then. That was George Bush, Sr., making a promise to the American people: “Read my lips: No new taxes.” He broke that promise. It looks as if Barack Obama is readying himself to break that [...]
Tweet The cat’s out of the bag now, and it’s clear that the Democrats and Obama are planning on destroying small businesses in America. This is no surprise, of course, given that small business — entrepreneurship, independence and individualism — is the antithesis of a government run marketplace: In the middle of a recession and [...]
Tweet In his most recent article at the Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove explains in great detail how Barack Obama told quite obvious lies about the stimulus numbers, only to pretend now that he didn’t really mean what he said. (That’s the lying pattern I’ve told you about.) The American people were good and fooled. [...]
Tweet Rep. Michele Bachmann has set up an online petition in which you can add your name to the list of people who want Congress to stop funneling money to ACORN.
Tweet Melissa Clouthier has a nice post about the tax freedom tea parties planned all over America for this coming Wednesday. After addressing (and pretty much dismissing) some concern from those on the Right about the motivations behind the tea parties, she has this lovely paragraph about the worry from the Left: I’m smelling more [...]
Tweet Mary Katharine Ham caught John Kerry finally admitting what Democrats fear most of all: that people will take control over their own destinies, without the elite in government dictating how their hard earned money should be spent. Perhaps if Kerry had ever held a real job and earned the money himself, he might have [...]
Tweet I like the way Drudge tends to snapshot trends. Here’s an interesting one, considering the looming deficits federal, state and local governments face: What’s missing from the above list, of course, is CUTS. Lawmakers are figuring out as hard and as fast as they can ways to drain more money from the taxpayers. The [...]
Tweet When I outspend my budget,* I have to make drastic cuts in my expenditures. Sadly, I cannot march into my boss and announce that he must immediately give me a huge raise to cover the shortfall. Fortunately for those in government, because they have the rare ability to boss around those who pay them, [...]
Tweet I suspect that, once Obama starts raising taxes, buyer’s remorse is going to set in with incredible speed. This article focuses on the local economy, but is a harbinger of what will happen when taxes go up on a larger, national scale: A temporary 1.5 percentage point sales tax increase proposed Thursday by Gov. [...]
Tweet Because the video’s creator cut in footage from Penn & Teller, there’s a fair amount of swearing, but it’s still a good video:
Tweet I’m no economist, but I can do basic math, and I’ve watched European countries over the last 40 years. I figured out that taxing 50% of the country so that it supports the other 50% is a mistake. Adam Lerrick uses intelligent language to explain why.
Tweet Kimberley Strassel does a completely masterful job of debunking the illusion supporting Obama’s supposed economic policy: And now, America, we introduce the Great Obama! The world’s most gifted political magician! A thing of wonder. A thing of awe. Just watch him defy politics, economics, even gravity! (And hold your applause until the end, please.) [...]
Tweet Governments tax people. They always have. A good question to ask, though, and one we haven’t seen asked lately is — what’s that money for? The Founders had an idea about what taxes were for. In the Constitution Art. I, Sec. 8, they spelled out the purpose behind taxes: The Congress shall have Power [...]
Tweet When the going gets tough, the candidate of hope and change, the one who assured us we’re in for the era of “a new kind of politics,” starts rolling around in the dirt and barking out the same old Chicago thuggery: “Sen. McCain bragged about how as chairman of the Commerce Committee in the [...]
Tweet The McCain campaign is giving substantive responses to the attacks the Obama campaign is leveling against it: TO: Interested Parties RE: Empty Words And Insults Cannot Cover A Weak Record DATE: September 15, 2008 Over the last few days, the Obama campaign has watched their poll numbers falter and decided to lash out with [...]
Tweet Wow! Unless I’m very confused, beneath all the O-babble here, Obama is conceding that low taxes benefit the economy: Democrat Barack Obama says he would delay rescinding President Bush’s tax cuts on wealthy Americans if he becomes the next president and the economy is in a recession, suggesting such an increase would further hurt [...]
Tweet As nice a summary as any I’ve seen of the practical effects of the proposed Obama tax plans: But here’s the thing: It’s not that Mr. Obama hasn’t been specific enough in his governing plans. To the contrary, he has been very specific about his tax policy, health-care and energy proposals. It’s that voters [...]
Tweet Jack Kemp and Peter Ferrara on Obama’s tax proposals and how they’ll affect all of us: Obama has proposed increases in every major federal tax. He has proposed to increase individual income taxes, with the top rate to rise to almost 40 percent. He has proposed to increase the top capital-gains tax rate by [...]
Tweet Forget Exxon’s “greedy” shareholders. The New Editor reminds us (which is something the MSM overlooked), that when Exxon does well, we all do well.
Tweet Obama was caught during his speech to minority journalists making noises that sounded remarkably like reparations talk: “I personally would want to see our tragic history, or the tragic elements of our history, acknowledged,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said. “I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it’s Native Americans or African-American issues [...]
