At Last: President George Washington’s Dying Wish

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

I shall carry it with me to my grave, as a strong incitement to unceasing vows that Heaven may continue to you the choicest tokens of its beneficence; that your Union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; that the free Constitution, which is the work of your hands, may be sacredly maintained; that its Administration in every department may be stamped with wisdom and Virtue; that, in fine, the happiness of the people of these States, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete, by so careful a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause, the affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it. — President George Washington

OBAMA’S MILE HIGH CLUB: Part Five

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA




Mile High, Still Just An Inch Deep

Obama Accepted His Nomination With Mile-High Rhetoric Nearly Three Years Ago In Denver, But Has Since Delivered Mile-High Debt, Deficits, And Unemployment

TAXES THEN: OBAMA: “Change Means A Tax Code That Doesn’t Reward The Lobbyists Who Wrote It, But The American Workers And Small Businesses Who Deserve It.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Acceptance Speech Remarks At The Democratic National Convention, Denver, CO, 8/28/08)

NOW: Obama Admitted He Will Raise Taxes On Job-Creators If He Is Reelected. OBAMA:“That is a reasonable proposition. So, when you hear folks saying ‘Well, the president shouldn’t want massive job killing tax increases when the economy is this weak.’ Nobody’s looking to raise taxes right now. We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out years.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks At Press Conference, Washington, D.C., 7/11/11)

Who Is Alan Krueger?

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA



Obama Nominates Advocate For $500 Billion Tax Increase Through Value-Added Tax

“President Barack Obama Nominates Princeton University’s Alan Krueger To Be Chairman Of The White House Council Of Economic Advisers, A White House Official Said.”(David Wessel, “Labor Economist To Fill Key Post,” The Wall Street Journal, 8/29/11)

LACKS REAL WORLD BUSINESS EXPERIENCE. Krueger should fit right in with the rest of Obama’s administration they have less business experience than a bunch of fifth graders…
If you’re wondering why it seems that the Obama Administration truly doesn’t understand how the free market works or why it thinks that we can simply spend our way out of a bad market, you need look no further than the make-up of the personnel on his team. In the past 110 years, we have never seen such a cabinet lacking in business expertise. Yes, there are many lawyers who have worked with businesses, but if you have to look at making payroll, making decisions that affect products in the market, market research, hiring and firing, well, you’re looking at 92% of a cabinet sans business experience with nary a clue how to deal with this economy. If we were in a legal crisis, we might all feel warm and fuzzy.Politifacts claims this is false, but asserts legal experience substitutes for business experience. You can decide for yourself as here is their link. From JP Morgan Private Bank via Michael Cembalest research published by Forbes.com:

Krueger Has Little To No Real World Business/Private Sector Experience. (Alan B. Krueger, Curriculum Vitae, Accessed 8/29/11)

Krueger“Another Example” Of Obama White House Favoring Individuals With No Private Sector Experience To Key Economic Positions. “Alan Krueger nod another example that there’s nothing this White House prizes like previous administration experience.” (Ezra Klein, Twitter Feed, Accessed 8/29/11)·

Ezra Klein: “Krueger fits the Jack Lew, Gene Sperling, Bruce Reed, etc model closely, where the White House prefers to go inside than out.”(Ezra Klein, Twitter Feed, Accessed 8/29/11)

The Truth about Texas Job Growth

Monday, August 29th, 2011
(Liberals, please go look up the definition of “truth” before proceeding)
Obama and his loony tune financial advisers seem to think that doing all things Keynesian will get the economy back on track.

rick-perry

We’d love to see a Rick Perry vs. Jerry Brown death match on the next UFC card.

It seems that Dallas Fed chief Richard Fisher has a different take on things and uses Texas as a shining example:

On Wednesday, Richard Fisher, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, gave a speech in which he separated “fact from fiction” about the record of job creation in Texas.

We can help but wonder whose fiction he was talking about?

Problem Solver: Green Jobs

Monday, August 29th, 2011

The greatest idea in history: How to solve the budget, poverty, obesity  and energy problems simultaneously

We bow to the genius of Walter Russell Mead. In fact, this is one guy we wouldn’t mind seeing President Obama bow to.

Mead’s article at TheAmericanInterest.com explains that green jobs are complete nonsense or, if you prefer, complete B.S.:

The belief that green jobs would drive a new era of American prosperity was — like the large majority of green policy chat — intellectually incoherent. The goods that drive renewable energy industries, like so much else in this world, are far cheaper to construct in Asia. As the NYT piece describes, SolFocus, a widely-celebrated solar power company based, only has 90 employees at their San Jose headquarters. The solar panels are assembled in China. Whether a product is an ordinary t-shirt or an admirable piece of world saving green technology like a wind turbine has zilch, zero, nada influence on the mind of the manufacturer trying to decide where it should be made.

Get ready. Here comes the idea that’s destined to win Mead a shelf full of Nobels:
