Guns, taxes and much, much more…

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?
