Myth-conceptions About Government and Finance

October 13, 2009

For those who want to know how complex some of the labor and retirement laws are, check this out: Participants and Advisors Are Hurt By High 401K Fees. Apparently the retirement plans have high fees the advisors never get any part of, and may not be aware of. But, that’s not the kicker. To find […]

Media And White House Smokescreens

October 9, 2009

There were a couple of news articles in last few days that particularly caught my eye. One article announced that Retail sales are at 2005 levels. That’s encouraging, as the media and government trumpet economic recovery. To be fair, it is an increase. But, no one is seeing the sales increases they’ve been expecting. There […]

Economics, Politics, and Smokescreens

September 28, 2009

There was an AP news reports yesterday declaring that Social Security will pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes the next two years.  The AP also reported that regulators shut down the 95th U.S. bank to fail this year as loan defaults rise in the worst financial climate in decades.  Meanwhile, the […]

The Real Man-Made God!

September 21, 2009

I had a really interesting…and frightening…thought today.  But, have you ever considered how government is becoming like a god? Let’s think about this for a minute.  When things went wrong, people used to cry out to their deity of choice for relief.  Who do we cry out to now?  The government!  Most religions have some […]

Around the World…and Healthcare Non-Reform?

September 14, 2009

In world news, Germany faces energy decisions that are changing power lines (pun intended).  Due to be phased out by 2022 after the Greens passed legislation in 2000, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is trying to revamp and start construction again.  Despite the expense of building nuclear plants, they are cheap to run.  And, with […]

Big Brother Is About To Grow

September 4, 2009

Go ahead and post your comments on the White House’s publicly accessible sites. Just be prepared. The government is hiring vendors to market and store your information. The National Legal and Policy Center, or NLPC, revealed the White House New Media team is seeking to hire a technology vendor to collect data such as comments, […]

The Socialization of America…continues…

September 3, 2009

About 10 months ago, hyper liberal Maxine Waters, Democratic representative from California, announced that the agenda was to socialize big oil, and by extension business in general. The so-called ”Democratic Underground” promptly labeled it as a smear campaign by Fox News, in spite of the fact that Waters clearly stated what she believed should happen. […]

Obama And the Ever Increasing Deficit

August 25, 2009

The AP article headline reads White House, Congress projects record deficits. Honestly, does this surprise anyone? Both the White House Office of Management and Budget and the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicted the budget deficit this year would swell to nearly $1.6 trillion, a record, and far above the then-record 2008 budget deficit of $455 […]

Revealing Leftism and Healthcare Lies In the Media

July 13, 2009

For those who wonder just how leftist the media and the country are going, take a look at this CNBC discussion of the second round of AIG bonuses. Kindly notice that Leslie Marshall (from national Radio) and Tanya Acker (from the Huffington Post) are in favor of throwing legal obligations to the wind based on […]

ACLU, Healthcare and the Socialism of America

July 9, 2009

I find it fascinating that people believe the American Civil Liberties Union (ALCU) has a high minded goal of seeing equal liberty for all. This is simply not the case. Have you ever heard of them taking a case to defend Christian rights? No. There are reasons for this. At its heart, the organization is […]
