A Conservative On Target – 3/2/11

As predicted, Cash Drains From Treasury as Republicans and Democrats Dither but the problem is that Obama is drawing cash reserves down to nothing to limit the apparent borrowing!

The Obama administration adopted regulations that will cost more than $26.5 billion a year. The nanny state isn’t just a nagging do-gooder -- it’s a costly scold.

imageSo what’s Obama’s foreign policy dithering done for you lately other than trigger a massive bout of stagflation. This vicious cycle of rising prices, decreased consumption and ever-higher prices (as vendors seek to recover higher fixed costs) will cripple the American economy for years to come.

The Beltway GOP really appears not to know how [the four week extension on the budget ] appears to the grass roots --weak and fearful, and above all playing a pat hand. That's a first down in a game in which your team is down by three touchdowns.

Unsurprisingly, 60% of Americans told The New York Times they did not want to take away the rights of other Americans. Problem is collective bargaining is not a right. It is a privilege. Wonder why the NYT didn’t ask “Do you favor forcing all state employees to join a union and empowering government unions to take union dues directly from employee paychecks?”

Think Paul Ryan is going to endorse Romney? Asked about the [RomneyCare] health care plan signed into law by Mitt Romney, Ryan said, “It’s not that dissimilar to Obamacare, and you probably know I’m not a big fan of Obamacare.”

imageSo how green is your lost job? A study of renewable energy in Scotland shows that for every job created in the alternative energy sector, almost four jobs are lost in the rest of the economy. We've seen this movie before.
