Per Capita Debt Reaches $1.5 Million For Every Child Born Today

Because this kind of debt isn’t the very definition of insanity…does any seriously still believe it’s only a revenue problem?

A tale of two opinions on taxes

I know I said I wouldn’t do any writing on politics for the next couple of days (it’s proving difficult)…

But here are just two clips on the capitalist versus socialist view on taxes, I think they speak for themselves

From the capitalist…Sorry FOXNews makes it almost impossible to embed the clips, but the link works.

From the jackass who should be up on tax evasion charges…

Notice who is saying everyone should be equal and who is in a very subtle way threatening to strip people of their rights as Americans.

Obama’s ‘Modest American Dream’ More Like a ‘Dream Killer’

As much as I’m getting annoyed with Big Government’s fit of anti-Romney bias (or as I’m now going to call it Romney Derangement Syndrome) Donlyn Turnbull is one of the few writers over there I don’t have any complaints about and articles like this one are the reason why:

Obama’s ‘Modest American Dream’ More Like a ‘Dream Killer’.

You should go read the whole article but here’s a sample:

The President remarked that…

 

If you’re willing to put in the work, the idea is that you should be able to raise a family and own a home; not go bankrupt because you got sick, because you’ve got some health insurance that helps you deal with those difficult times; that you can send your kids to college; that you can put some money away for retirement, that’s all most people want. Folks don’t have unrealistic ambitions. They do believe that if they work hard they should be able to achieve that small measure of an American Dream.”

When I first heard this comment I thought it was so sad.  Then, as the anger crept in, I thought, does President Obama not understand where he lives?

“Unrealistic” thinking is the very principle this country was founded on.
