February 26, 2009

Across the nation tomorrow, Tea Parties are kicking off in protest of the unsustainable tax and spending policies exhibited in the massive $700 billion bank bailout, the monstrous $787 billion stimulus plan, the $410 omnibus spending bill, and the bloated Obama budget boasting a shocking $1.5 trillion deficit. Rick Santelli had the right idea when […]

Monstrous deficit in Obama’s bloated budget

February 26, 2009

President Obama today unveiled his $3.55 trillion budget that boasts a whopping $1.75 trillion deficit. So much for all that fiscal responsibility, eh? The budget will cost each American taxpayer $25,573.48.I don’t know what your financial circumstances are, but that’s over half of my yearly salary going down the drains in this sinkhole of a budget. […]

An amendment sponsored by Senator Jim DeMint passed today, the so-called Broadcaster Freedom Act, passed in the Senate 87-11. The amendment bans the Fairness Doctrine from being passed into law, which had been floated by several prominent legislators and President Clinton.

It looks like Senator Patrick Leahy is plowing forward with his plans to form a Truth Commission to investigate crimes of the Bush administration. I’ve said it before, this has nothing to do with truth and everything to do with partisan grandstanding. Leahy talks in circles about how “we cannot move forward until we understand […]

Arrogance: Obama accomplishes more in a month than any other modern President

As President Obama prepares for a State of the Union-style speech tonight, his staffers are busy pounding their chests and inflating Barack’s ego. Jake Tapper reports that a White House official made the jaw-dropping claim that “President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history.” Apparently he’s got such an impressive set […]

I give tennis star Andy Roddick massive kudos on his recent decision to drop out of a tournament in Dubai in protest of the United Arab Emirates’ refusal to issue a visa to Israeli tennis player Shahar Peer. He says, “I don’t know if it’s the best thing to mix politics and sports, and that was […]
