Less than a week after winning a second term, President Barack Obama has unveiled his first true priority — higher tax rates on “the wealthy”.  House Speaker John Boehner quickly adopted a supine position, which he only hemi-demi-semi-repented after a sharp kick in the caboose from the Republicans he, in theory, represents. Let me lay […]

So, you may ask yourself, what happened to the show post for Episode 155, which should have been out a week ago? Well, you see, I had written the post and had it sitting as a draft and then, for reasons I now attribute to either ancient aliens or a sudden influx of Higgs bosons […]

The Truth Behind President Obama's Attack on Success

The Truth Behind President Obama's Attack on Success

| July 17, 2012 | 11 Replies

Last Friday, President Obama gave a speech in Roanoake, VA in which he excoriated business owners and the “successful” for their rampant greed and confronted them with the truth about how they built their businesses. The short answer? They didn’t build a darned thing. We built it for them. And by “we”, Barack Obama means […]

Romney's Plan: No Spending Cuts. No Tax Reform. No Bueno.

Romney's Plan: No Spending Cuts. No Tax Reform. No Bueno.

I made a stunning discovery while recording this week’s episode of The Delivery: Mitt Romney has no intention on cutting the size of government. Now, I know that sounds like a baseless attack on Romney by a guy who is on record as saying he’d vote for a half-eaten and moldering ham sandwich rather than […]

I apologize for the return of Harry Reid’s glowering mug on the front page, but someone delivered a smackdown of Reid’s egregious “unicorn” statement so thorough that it’s worth staring at Reid to get it.

Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy, and Millionaires Who Hire People: Harry Reid's Mythical Trifecta

It’s been a while since Senator Harry Reid (D – Under the Nearest Bridge) flat-out lost his mind, but today, he erupted with a tirade against Republicans and “the rich” that ought to disqualify him from holding a job more complex than dishwasher ever again. Here’s what he said: The Republicans say the richest of […]

Harry's Newest Obsession is a Man Named Grover

Harry Reid hates Grover Norquist. A lot. If you’re not a political junkie, you’ve probably not heard of Norquist nor the group he heads called Americans for Tax Reform. ATR has a pretty simple goal — a simpler, lower, more fair tax code — and one of its tools is a pledge it asks candidates […]

Once in a while, I get the urge (and the abundance of subject matter) to do an extra podcast during the week. I haven’t done one of these bonus Friday shows for a couple or three months and it was just time. Episode 116 is a rule-breaker, in that the show is all politics, but […]

There are a couple posts over at Ending Spending of which I’m particularly proud. I’d like it if you clicked over there and left a nice comment or two, if you’ve the mind to do so. It’s easy to make light of “waste, fraud, and abuse” but when you look at how much money our […]
