“Wealth is the product of men’s capacity to think.” -Ayn Rand

On bail-outs, the hard-working, bill-paying folks in the middle get squeezed

The unfairness is astounding. Poor behavior is rewarded, while playing by the rules and forgoing current consumption to pay one's bills is penalized.

A larger price will be paid because of the moral hazard. Additionally, since we are asking our children to pay for mortgages they did not benefit from, how will they be denied the same?

Pandora's box is open.

PAJAMAS MEDIA | Victor Davis Hanson WRITES:
Emblematic of the anger at both top and bottom was the 2008 meltdown: those who had not played by the rules still got their mortgages, then defaulted, and left the taxpayer with their bills; those who made the loans and profited without risk, took the bailout money, and left us with the cleanup. Those in between with underwater mortgages and higher taxes pay the tab.

Earth to MSM, it's not anti-incumbant anger it's anti-Democrat anger.

As election approaches- Obama pleads for $50 billion in state, local aid

Time to stop this nonsense. Our children cannot afford it.

'The letter comes as rising concern about the national debt is undermining congressional support for additional spending to bolster the economy. '

Barone nails it on bailouts- must read

Actually Rick Santelli nailed clear back in February of 2009.

Sadly, we are still bailing out societies slackers with no end in sight. It is only the hard working folks who follow the rules who are ineligible for government's largess.

Barack Obama- Ass Kicker

How very presidential of him.

Liberal Harvard grad gonna kick some ass- sounds scary. Obama seems more like Alan Alda than John Wayne, if you ask me.


Maybe next year Obama will get the Nobel Ass Kicker Prize.
Barack Obama: "I don't sit around talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick."

Quote

"Peoples, once accustomed to masters, are not in a condition to do without them. If they attempt to shake off the yoke, they estrange themselves even more from freedom.  By mistaking for it an unbridled license to which it is diametrically opposed, they nearly always manage, by their revolutions, to hand themselves over to seducers, who only make their chains heavier than before." (Jean Jacques Rousseau)

Senator & Representative's oath of office

It must choke some of them  (Democrats) to say these words. What they have done to the Constitution is obscene.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

Victor Davis Hanson: Why is America copying Euro style socialism?

It seems an obvious question. Mr. Hansen, as usual, nails it. Read the whole article.


"Only one question remains: At a time when Europe is discovering that its democratic socialism does not work, why in the world is the United States doing its best to copy it?"
