Guns, taxes and much, much more…

Posted by Ender on April 21, 2009

At the end of March there was yet another propaganda push to villianize guns in America. It took the form of the media and state leaders saying that American guns were fueling the Mexican drug violence. By state leaders I’m not talking about low level mayors and city councilmen. I’m talking about Obama and Clinton…  Here’s a great article about the whole thing…

It appears that Obama’s whirlwind tour of Europe left some with a sour taste in their mouths. Shockingly, even France had several criticisms of Obama. A report leaked by French staffers stated “Most of Mr Obama’s proposals had already been made by the Bush administration and Washington was dragging its feet on disarmament and treaties against nuclear proliferation.” Once Obama was elected I thought they were going to love us over there…guess not. Read about it here.

One of the most despicable organizations in America is the Teacher’s Union. In truly liberal fashion they are the epitome of claiming to care for X while simultaneously looking out for themselves while hurting X. The fact of the matter is that Unions only benefit the corrupt, lazy teachers. The students and education suffer. Here is an article detailing how layoffs are handled.

Apparently, Obama has made an about face on his fiscal irresponsibility. He has made a budget cut of $100M. Wow, I am almost ready to renounce all the times I have said he is economically ignorant. But wait, let’s put this into perspective: Brian Riedl writes “It is 1/40,000 of the federal budget; It is 1/7,830 the size of the recent “stimulus” bill; It would close 1/1,845 of this year’s budget deficit; It is the amount the federal government spends every 13 minutes; and for a family earning $40,000 annually, it is the equivalent of cutting $1 from their family budget.” I’m pretty sure that if the family making 40k a year peed outside instead of in the toilet it would save at least that $1. Glad you are taking this seriously Barry.

And finally, here’s a great video about all those taxes you pay. Did you know that most of you are actually slaves to the state for about 1/3 of the year?

Quick Links: Obama Edition

Posted by Ender on March 11, 2009

Five hard hitting articles on Obama’s shortfalls:

Obama ran on a campaign of change. Unfortunately for those who voted for him, the only change is between what he said during the campaign and how he is running the office.

Obama has started what some are calling “The War on Business.” Discouraging innovation, protectionism, entitlements, anti-intellectual property rights, Government interference in the free market, to name a few of his tactics.

Obama’s ten biggest mistakes since he moved into office.

Obama the fear mongerer. Politics of a crisis.

Obama’s War on Business continued. Employers, Unions and the Emplyee Free Choice Act.

Random Thoughts and Links

Posted by Ender on February 17, 2009

If Capitalism takes advantage of the poor, why do the poor flock to free market countries?

After watching the NBA All-Star Game and seeing the Obama video during halftime, I was left to wonder is he already campaigning for 2012?

If liberals care for the poor so much, why do they hate Wal-Mart which provides low cost goods to everyone?

Is it OK to be confused by a car that has two Obama bumper stickers and another that says “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism”?

Found a great video on the site Save Capitalism. The video is a lesson on inflation as perfromed by Duck Tales.

Apparently the word faith wasn’t too far off…liberalism: the religion.

National Review released a list of the top 25 conservative movies in the last 25 years.
