Posted by Stephen on August 3, 2011

By Jim Meyers

Americans narrowly disapprove of the deficit reduction bill agreed upon in Washington on Monday, but they disapprove of Congress’ and President Obama’s handling of the debt ceiling crisis by a wide margin, according to a Newsmax poll conducted by InsiderAdvantage.

The survey also found that House Speaker John Boehner gets the highest approval marks among prominent members of Congress who played key roles in the agreement.

Larry Elder: Democrat ‘Budget Plan’: Attack the Tea Party and Misquote Reagan

Posted by Stephen on July 28, 2011

To hear Democrats tell it, two things cripple the chance for a budget deal: the dastardly tea party, and the GOP’s failure to understand that its beloved Ronald Reagan was actually militantly pro-tax.

Gag me.

Thomas Sowell: Obama’s ‘Balanced’ Approach

Posted by Stephen on July 28, 2011

Barack Obama’s political genius is his ability to say things that will sound good to people who have not followed the issues in any detail — regardless of how obviously fraudulent what he says may be to those who have. Shameless effrontery can be a huge political asset, especially if uninformed voters outnumber those who are informed.

Racketeering Charges against SEIU; What Does Obama Know?

Posted by Stephen on July 28, 2011

By John Ransom at Newsmax.com

United States District Judge Claude Hilton, acting in the eastern district of Virginia, has ruled that the French-based food service and facilities management company Sodexo can proceed with an extortion claim against the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

The SEIU, which has strong ties to the Obama administration, has been accused of using ties to the federal government to harass companies such as Sodexo. The alleged methods include using regulatory or government action to pressure or embarrass the company or its employees.

Atheist Dave Silverman is twisting the Constitution and attacking your rights

Posted by Stephen on July 27, 2011

When I went to visit the site of the World Trade Center after 9/11 I experienced moments that are hard to put into words. It was powerful. It was sad. It was moving in a way I can never really explain. It was also inspirational.

Standing with my face pinned to the chain link fence that surrounded the site, my heart beat with such verocity I felt as though it might explode. My eyes fixed on one object in the midst of twisted steel, dirt and massive pieces of broken concrete. I fought back tears. I wanted to climb the fence and make my over to this singular object standing alone in a field of rubble. It amazes me, even today, how impacting the sight of two pieces of steel continues to be.

Now Dave Silverman, head of The American Atheists, wants to take that memory away by filing suit to remove two pieces of steel that he has decided prevents him from expanding his atheist viewpoint.

Obama playing political games while foregoing leadership

Posted by Stephen on July 27, 2011

What do you do when you are a failure as a leader? You use smoke and mirrors to manipulate people around you. You play games to convince others that you have a plan and play blame games when people ask you where the plan is.

If you don’t believe me, just watch obama in the White House. If you need proof, listen to obama wax on about the looming August 2 deadline.

Obama’s ‘Compromise’ is based on jealousy of the rich

Posted by Stephen on July 26, 2011

Blame the rich! Don’t bother letting people know that the tax rate for corporations is higher in the U.S. then any place in the world. Don’t bother reminding people that sole-proprietorships are the job creators and that they pay taxes as individuals; not businesses.

No, don’t waste the time of the common man…just blame the rich and redistribute their wealth because that’s “patriotic.”

Thank goodness there are some in congress that are standing up against this socialistic, arrogant, incompetent and reckless path that Obama is determined to force America to stay on.

A Pro-Growth Plan from the Gang of Six

Posted by Stephen on July 21, 2011

By Larry Kudlow

There are a lot of known unknowns about the new “Gang of Six” budget proposal. But conservatives should hold back from trashing it. Why? There’s a large, pro-growth tax-reform piece in the plan that would lower tax rates across the board. This is a stunning reversal of the Obama Democrats’ soak-the-rich, class-warfare campaign.

Senate Republicans Show Flexibility in Debt Debate

Posted by Stephen on July 20, 2011

Senate Republicans are showing far more flexibility than their tea party-backed House colleagues as Washington policymakers seek to steer the government away from a first-ever default on its financial obligations.

As the House doubled down on a symbolic vote to condition any increase in the government’s borrowing authority on congressional passage of a balanced budget constitutional amendment and a fresh wave of spending cuts, the warm reception by many Senate Republicans to a new bipartisan budget plan revealed a thawing in GOP attitudes on new tax revenues.
