To Serve, Protect, And Enforce Regulation 92-B, Section I, Sub-Section (b), Paragraph 2

Yeah, I think our Federal government has gotten just the teensiest bit out of hand. An advertisement has popped up on a few blogs I read and I decided to capture the image and share it with you.   Boy, that’s inspiring, isn’t it? Can you just imagine that parents all over America are telling […]

Sooper Genius Anthony Weiner's Path to Electoral Victory: Sell Republican Books!

| May 31, 2011 | Reply

I’m going to do something a bit daring today and write a post about Anthony Weiner that doesn’t involve his crotch. Last week, he laid out the Democrats’ plan to end the Republican majority in the House. It is, I admit, a clever plan. His idea is to use the Republican plans to save Medicare […]

The Democrats' Medicare Lie…Again

If I had been in charge of the RNC’s fast response team today, I would have had them all over this tweet sent by Hari Sevugan, national press secretary for the Democratic National Committee. The Democratic plan is to reduce costs to strengthen Medicare. The Rplcn plan touted by @CantorPress and @timpawlenty is one to […]

As Tax Increases Go, This One Would Be A Humdinger.

If I hadn’t seen this at The Hill, I would have sworn it came straight from The Onion. The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive. The plan is a part of the […]

The Delivery Presents – Bonus Friday Caring with Kurt

Special Bonus Friday Episode 89 turned out to be everything I thought it would be when I asked Kurt Schlichter to come on the show with me — funny, smart, and wickedly cutting. We talked about John Boehner’s budget deal, the slide of America into today’s modern welfare state, and the origin of the Community […]

The Problem With the Left Is Not that They're Lemmings but that They're Hijackers

I used to think the progressive left was little more than a bunch of lemmings, determines to leap en masse off the cliffs of fiscal insanity. The more I think about it, though, the more I realize that comparison just doesn’t work. Here is a recent example (via memeorandum) If President Obama’s deficit-reduction speech today […]

My Partial Mea Culpa on the Budget Deal

My Partial Mea Culpa on the Budget Deal

| April 13, 2011 | 1 Reply

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I’ve defended John Boehner’s budget deal. It looks, today, like Boehner played a lot of silly games to get cuts that, while still cuts, won’t perform as advertised. As such, I’m going to have to eat a little bit of crow. I’m not the only […]

Ezra Klein's "Let It Ride" Plan is A Quick Trip to Cloud Cuckoo Land

| April 12, 2011 | 5 Replies

I can not imagine a blogger that does less with more than the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein. All he has to do is occasionally put up a random chart with nice pretty lines that end right about where he wants them to end and write a few paragraphs that sound like serious policy proposals and, […]

The President's Budget: A Metaphor, Not A Scary Serial Killer Weapon.

| April 11, 2011 | 2 Replies

Here come the President’s budget plan and — surprise! — its chief weapon will be an overused scary metaphor. President Obama this week will lay out a new approach to reducing the nation’s soaring debt, proposing reductions in spending on entitlements such as Medicare and Medicaid and renewing his call for tax increases on the […]

Tax the Rich? Well, Okay. Let's Start with Peter Orszag and His Revolving Door Friends

I’m not fan of tax increases, but I think I can get behind Glenn Reynolds’ plan. A 50% surtax on anything earned within five years after leaving the federal government, above whatever the federal salary was. Leave a $150K job at the White House, take a $1M job with Goldman, Sachs, pay a $425K surtax. […]
