Successful people are NOT lottery winners, Mr. President- May 18, 2015
You know me, friends. I get kind of animated sometimes, but I’m not mad. I’m just passionate.
But President Obama said something this past week that really got my blood boiling, partly because I know from experience how ignorant and wrong it is and partly because I can’t help but take it a bit personally – on my own behalf but even more so on behalf of my dad.
Let’s not forget the pain and sorrow associated with tragic events- May 14, 2015
As we talked this morning about the horrible train derailment that injured so many, and as of now appears to have killed at least seven people, I thought about how much of this type of news we’ve had to deal with lately.
Obama attacks (and mocks) Fox News poverty coverage . . .- May 14, 2015
Yesterday, President Obama attacked Fox News for the way it covers poverty, even going so far as to say “we’re going to have to change the way the media reports on these issues.”
Oh are we? We all know Obama thinks the job of the media is to lick his boots, and we also know he would use the power of the state to silence media critics if he could. (They tried it with James Rosen, remember?)
Understanding debt held by the public, and what a big problem it is- May 12, 2015
Today on the radio show we talked about the fact that the U.S. national debt has reached $18.2 trillion. But another number, perhaps even more important but not widely understood, is the portion of this called debt held by the public. That is now over $13 trillion.
More lawlessness from the IRS- May 11, 2015
Did it surprise you when the news came out on Friday that 1,580 IRS employees have willfully neglected to pay their taxes over the past 10 years? Keep in mind that the “willfully” crowd is just a drop in the bucket at the IRS, where more than 18,000 employees were delinquent on their taxes at one time or another, but only the 1,580 in question were tabbed as having intentionally failed to pay.
You might be a boot-lick’n liberal if . . .- May 7, 2015
Contrary to what some of you liberals think, I don’t wish you ill. Quite the contrary, I want to help you, and the first step to getting help is recognizing you have a problem.
It’s on! Senators Perdue, Moran sponsor new FairTax bill- May 7, 2015
Senator David Perdue (R-Georgia) and 73 other members of this new Congress have introduced the Fair Tax legislation! Consider the Fair Tax Now!
Cain’s Checklist for Presidential Candidates- May 5, 2015
As the announced presidential candidates continue to grow in number, it’s going to be harder and harder for Main Street folks like us to keep up with the similarities and the differences. This is even more difficult because of the media’s uncontrollable impulse to define each candidate based on labels, sound bites, and perceptions they want to create.
If we just had normal growth, we could have a $500 billion surplus this year- May 4, 2015
I commented on Friday about the Wall Street Journal commentary by Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana) in which he offered several good ideas to spur economic growth. But there was something else about that column that really struck me as I looked back on it.
One Republican senator’s welcome ideas on how to spur economic growth- May 1, 2015
I actually think we can do better than 3.5 percent on average, but nevertheless I like the thinking of U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy. You may recall that he defeated Democrat Mary Landrieu in last year’s Louisiana Senate race - one of the Republican wins that gave the GOP the Senate majority and ended Harry Reid’s reign of terror in the upper chamber.
Pathetic: 1Q GDP growth is a sad 0.2 percent- Apr 29, 2015
We told you yesterday that forecasts were not good for the coming report on first-quarter GDP growth, although we held out the possibility that the report could be better than the doomsayers were suggesting.
The rules of tolerance: You must bake for gay weddings; you must not host a Ted Cruz event- Apr 27, 2015
Just so we understand how things work around here . . . tolerance doesn’t necessarily mean what you think it means. You think it means we all just accept each other?
Why character matters- Apr 27, 2015
Let me take you back to a very old debate, because it’s curiously coming full-circle – thanks to the man very much at the center of it when it first started.
Liberals are lying about the death tax- Apr 20, 2015
There are few taxes liberals love more than the death tax. They figure that once you’re dead, your heirs have no legitimate claim to your money because they did nothing to earn it. And who does have a legitimate claim to it? The government, of course! Why? Because all wealth inherently belongs to the government and anything you are allowed to use throughout the course of your life is strictly the result of their kind beneficence.

Go bold, Republicans, on replacing the tax code- Apr 15, 2015
There’s no better day than today (Tax Day) to encourage the Republican presidential candidates to go bold with their solution to our nation’s biggest hindrance to economic growth – the tax code.
