Harry Reid Claims Everybody is Willing to Pay More Taxes

Harry Reid is saying stupid things again. His latest crank statement is that “Everybody” is “willing to pay more” taxes. Well, I’m one of the “everybody,” and I’m not willing to pay more taxes. In what I paid last year in Federal taxes I could have hired two people. I’ve

Let’s Replace the Tax Code with a National Lottery

The United States has an all-voluntary military, so why not an all-voluntary taxing system? Aren’t liberals all about freedom of choice? Their sloganeering includes the operating premise “My body . . . My choice!” So why not expand the notion of what’s mine you can’t touch to property. “My land

Obama Sets Tax Offer High to Sucker GOP

Obama knows that the GOP is not going to agree to a $1.6 million dollar tax increase. At least I don’t think the GOP will agree to it. But you never know when it comes to creatures without a backbone. They’re talking big right now, but will they cave when

Money for Nothing, 13 Million Fewer Votes, and a Less than Conservative Candidate Won it for Obama

With all the votes in, it looks like 117 million people voted, about 13 million fewer than in 2008. Even Obama didn’t as many votes as he did in 2008. There’s a great deal of discussion about why Obama won. Rep. Jim Jordan (R.-Ohio), the chairman of the House Republican

Michelle, Who You Calling a ‘Knucklehead’?

First Ladies should be rarely seen and never heard from. We didn’t elect First Ladies. That goes for conservatives, too.

Contrary to Obama, Governments Don’t Build Roads and Bridges

When President Obama said “You didn’t build that,” millions of Americans objected. But since there are fewer business owners than those who work for a business owner, the President most likely scored some points with the electorate. Everything he says is calculated to appeal to his base. Conservatives didn’t help

How Taxes Nearly Destroyed an Industry

Politicians believe that taxes and regulations are simply the cost of doing business. Business owners can either absorb the costs or pass them on to customers. It doesn’t work that way. When the minimum wage goes up, an employer often will lay off a single employee while paying his remaining

Why Aren’t Oil Companies Getting Credit for Dropping Gas Prices?

When gasoline prices go up, oil companies get blamed. Obscene profits! Greedy exploiters of the public trust! Now that gas prices may drop below $3.00 per gallon, the oil critics are silent. If oil and gas prices are rigged, then why are prices falling? Oil is down to $80 a

Why Pay Taxes When the Government Can Just Print Money?

Why do we have to pay so much for milk? Let’s just put more water in it. Why pay so much for paint? Why not dilute it. Why pay so much for concrete? Just add more sand and gravel? That’s the logic of “Why Pay Taxes When the Government Can
