Solution? What Solution?

Happy New Year! Welcome to higher taxes!

Yes, that’s right, Democrats, along with a minority of the majority Republicans in the House, voted to raise your taxes as part of the deal to avert the “fiscal cliff”!

Democrats Vote For Off Shore Tax Credits

Democrats love to run around and talk about how Republicans are the one’s who vote to allow companies to hide their profits in off shore accounts to avoid paying taxes.

And, if they do, don’t expect them to make a big deal out of it. Continue reading

Not Only Is It Wrong, It’s Unconstitutional Too

As President Obama and his hordes of minions continue to try and push an agenda of class warfare, whereby he wants to tax some Americans to give expressed benefits to those that will roll over and support him, I am forced to remind everyone that such actions are wrong.

A Warning To All The Takers

I just want to give a warning all the takers out there who voted for Barack Obama and brought us to the edge of tax increases starting in 2013. See, my wife and I aren’t rich.

Prepare For The Tantrums To Get Worse

With the “fiscal cliff” looming before us, it is time to warn you that this Christmas Season the only thing you are likely to receive are worsening tantrums from Washington. Most of these tantrums will come from liberal Democrats. Although, make no mistake, there will be many coming from liberal Republicans too.

There Is No End To Obama’s Lies

President Obama has shown that he, like most politicians, has no shame. Oh, he’ll gladly lie, cheat and steal if he has to in order to maintain power. And considering how bad the last four years have been? Well, that is about the only hope he has of winning re-election in 2012. Continue reading

Obama Grasps Desperately

Myths About Taxes And The Rich Die Slowly

Facts are stubborn things. So too apparently are the minds of certain individuals. These individuals usually, but not always, tend to lean to the left.

When facts attempt to enter a liberal’s mind it is the proverbial unmovable object (the liberal mind) meeting the equally proverbial unstoppable force (the facts). Continue reading
