HOPE Watch! 75% Say Free Markets Better Than Gov. Management of Economy, Political Class Disagrees!

Full Sherrod Tape Is Worse! > racist AND leftist! How did the NAACP get "snookered" by their own tape AND Sherrod? Bozell: “I’ve watched the full tape. It gets worse; it doesn’t get better! It’s not that Andrew Breitbart took out something that what was going to somehow get her off the hook. She hangs herself later on with footage that Andrew Breitbart I believe did not have on his.” [ Sherrod has snookered this country, the NAACP, the entire Obama administration and made a weak Obama kow-tow to her too. Now watch for her second law suit after a successful one years ago. You can bet that Obama is desperately trying to make this one go away! - JS ]

From JournoList to Shirley Sherrod: The Left’s Default Response Is Fascism:
  Here’s another insider nugget of information you can take home with you. The warning I most frequently repeat at our thrice-weekly VRWC meetings (a Denny’s on Sunset) is: Take them [Liberals] at their word.
When the Left threatens the 1st Amendment, it’s not hyperbole and it’s not a joke. If they had the power to do it, they would do it. And they’re driving to obtain the power and already have the bill written — the Orwellian named Fairness Doctrine.

Economy: It’s a Fiscal Problem, Not a Fed Problem - Lots of cash but what nut would invest in jobs now? Think of all the economic obstacles of spending, taxing, and regulating coming out of Washington. What should be done to spur growth? Keep tax rates down. And stop passing massive regulatory bills, like the bank reform Obama just signed into law. Read more…

Obama's Greatest Fear - British PM Cameron's Republicanism may give GOP a great model!  Obama has every reason to fear the emergence of Cameron-style Republicanism. But American conservatives who respect Cameron's budget-cutting courage should also pay attention to his political insights. A successful austerity agenda depends on the assembly of an ideological coalition -- and it requires a domestic agenda more inspiring than responsible accounting.

Only in Obamerica! BIZARRO Watch! New START, New Slogan … Trust But Don’t Verify:
  Only in the bizarro world of the Obama administration is this country made any safer by signing treaty that the counter party has no intention of following. And that is just the beginning of New START’s many fatal flaws.
  Not only has it been clearly established that New START’s verification mechanisms are completely inadequate to protect our country, but it is increasingly becoming clear that the Obama administration significantly weakened our missile defenses in order to get the Russians to sign.

Open Conspiracy is No Longer Merely Ajar - Journolist has started to leak like an overripe diaper:  The conservative movement at least admits it is a movement (even though conservatives outnumber liberals 2-1 in this country). Establishment liberalism, not just in the press but also in the White House, academia and Hollywood, holds power by refusing to make the same concession. "This isn't about ideology. ... We just call them like we see them. ... We don't have an agenda." … The open conspiracy that perpetuates that lie is far more pernicious than any chat room.

Mama Can't Find a Doctor, and Other Fallout From New Democratic Legislation - The Democrats seem less concerned with keeping power in the long run and more concerned about altering every feature of the economic landscape before the nation wakes up to the realization that we have been buried under an avalanche of paper, forced to look for physicians that aren't available or are just plain out of business.

"One of the most insidious consequences of the present burden of personal income tax is that it strips many middle class families of financial reserves & seems to lend support to campaigns for socialized medicine, socialized housing, socialized food, socialized every thing. The personal income tax has made the individual vastly more dependent on the State & more avid for state hand-outs. It has shifted the balance in America from an individual-centered to a State-centered economic & social system." -- W. H. Chamberlin [ Yes! We need a flat tax or VAT – but not income taxes when they are “redistributive”. – JS ]

“There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.” -- John Adams
