Yep, I miss Bush – UPDATED

And if that annoys anyone, that's too bad.Seems increasingly like all the "Fascist Bush" caterwauling was the usual fake, dishonest theater meant as a means to an end - the end being to destroy the hated "election stealer" and his legacy, and not much more.But you know, for someone who "did everything wrong," his policies suddenly seem wise and right to some surprising people.It's easy to campaign and criticize. It's much more difficult to govern, especially knowing that if you don't keep … [Read more...]

A Marginal Tax Rate of 90%?

If you missed it, go read the whole post over at Instapundit (all emphasis mine):I explained to [Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Pleasanton)] that even people who make $150k in Northern Cal. are not “rich” and should not be taxed as if they were...I also expressed my concern that about half the people in the country now pay no income taxes, so there is overwhelming incentive for them to keep voting for democrats and therefore higher taxes for the rest of us. He told me that he thought tax rates s … [Read more...]

Obama & Dems: Put your dreams away…UPDATED

My husband works for a company that is trying to sell their product to places like Lowe's and Home Depot.I hear Obama say "BUILDING SPRAWL STOPS NOW!" and I think, there go 800,000 jobs. And along with those jobs, probably another 100,000 jobs in retail and business technologies.And there goes an awful lot of tax revenue. How we are supposed to pay for this beast of a bill without taxable earnings is something the great "I Won" - who can't say a positive word about industry, … [Read more...]

The $13 a week stimulus – UPDATED

Hey, $13 dollars is $13, I guess. In January that falls to $8.Here is our 800 billion dollar stimulus mostly-spending bill we must see passed, and we must gratefully accept as the only possible solution to our "catastrophic" problems and our growing malaise. The ONLY solution.This other one, over here, brought up by another Democrat? Ignored. Just ignored.I just have one thing to ask:What does Michelle Obama suggest we do - how we will stimulate the economy with our $13?As I … [Read more...]

A Poll and a Chart; Liberty Matters

First the Rasmussen poll:67% Say They Could Do A Better Job On The Economy Than CongressWhen it comes to the nation’s economic issues, 67% of U.S. voters have more confidence in their own judgment than they do in the average member of Congress. ... Since they no longer control either the Senate or the House, it’s no surprise that a majority of Republicans (51%) say a group of people picked at random from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress. But even more una … [Read more...]

Obamarama Linkapalooza

Actually, the Linkfest will be coming up, but I had to share Chris Muir's great cartoon, (H/T Amused Cynic):Oh, come on, laugh! If you're not allowed to laugh at your president, then you're already not free!Check back for lots of links! Today will be a "day of continual linking" with constant updates, so keep coming back! One quick thought: If any congressional critter needs an excuse to suddenly "switch my vote in order to take a serious look at this provision, they've got it. And … [Read more...]

Telling it straight: Must reads – UPDATED

Charles Krauthammer gets it exactly right in this piece:In these most recent 20 years -- the alleged winter of our disrespect of the Islamic world -- America did not just respect Muslims, it bled for them. It engaged in five military campaigns, every one of which involved -- and resulted in -- the liberation of a Muslim people: Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.The two Balkan interventions -- as well as the failed 1992-93 Somalia intervention to feed starving African Muslims (43 … [Read more...]

Longest. Linkaround. Evah.

Settle in for a long 'un, kiddies.Start here (h/t Ann Althouse):Hey, according to the press, wars are challenging, serious and difficult to win. Funny how perceptions change when parties change in the White House, innit? Iraq suddenly looks different, too! Or...actually...maybe the same!President Bush has declared Washington DC a state of emergency to help secure and pay for Obama's inaugural. Most expensive inaugural ever. In a time of (if the left is to be believed) "unprecedented … [Read more...]

Friday Linkaround

Quiet today. After gabbing and watching videos through the night, we put Buster on a plane headed back to school early this morning, then went to mass and - since it was offered - took the opportunity to go to confession, and then came home and promptly fell asleep until the early afternoon. Can't remember the last time I've done that. Felt kind of good, actually!So, here is a link around to stuff you may or may not be seeing elsewhere. It's a long post, but stick with it; I don't think … [Read more...]
