$15 Minimum Wage = $8 Big Mac Meal

Liberal Democrats are pushing to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $15 per hour. They claim that it will help millions of Americans to provide for their families and require less government assistance. The argument looks good on the surface, but like so many other things in life, the liberals fail to logically think through the consequences of what they are demanding. To start with, thousands of small businesses are already in financial trouble due to Barack Obama’s increased Read more […]

Obama Less than 10% towards Goal of Promised Million Manufacturing Jobs

When Barack Obama was running for president in 2008, he promised to create 5 million green jobs during his term.  He fell way short of his goal.  In fact, it seemed like there were more green companies folding and laying off thousands of people than there were green companies hiring new employees. During his 2012 re-election campaign, Obama again promised to create one million jobs, but this time in the manufacturing sector, not green energy.  He must have believed that his chances were better. If Read more […]

Obama Continues Quest To Destroy Small Businesses

With all of the problems associated with Obamacare and the failed rollout of the online signup program, President Obama has left small business owners in a paradox that could be very costly to them. In a move that Obama says will help small business owners; he delayed the launch of an online healthcare exchange for them for a year.  But like many private individuals, many small business owners are finding that their policies are being cancelled due to the requirements imposed by Obamacare.  Read more […]

Bernie Sanders, Leftist “Logic,” and Social Security

In an article in USA Today, ((I think it is odd how many politicians write partisan opinion pieces for major news outlets. It seems obvious to me that fair and unbiased news is less than likely to come from professional liars with a vested interest in swaying public opinion. But alas…)) Bernie Sanders, the Democrat junior Senator from Vermont, talked a little about untaxed rich people, Social Security, corporate tax loopholes, and other Democrat talking points. Since I found his article so riveting, Read more […]

Taxes? States to Avoid

If you are considering moving to another state, there are two things that you might want to consider before deciding on where to call your new home. One of the key factors I would hope you consider is how the state’s government feels about the Second Amendment.  I would definitely think twice about moving to a state that has passed anti-Second Amendment legislation.  Colorado, New York, Maryland, Connecticut and Illinois are states that I would hesitate to move to because of their anti-gun Read more […]

The Hidden Evils of Obama’s Budget Proposal

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama released his long awaited and dreaded budget proposal.  He claims that it will help lead to a deficit reduction of over $1 trillion over the next 10 years, which breaks down to only a reduction of $200 billion a year.  He also claims that his proposal will help lead efforts towards a balanced budget in the near future.  Lastly, he also claims that his math is sound. The moment his budget proposal was released, hundreds of people and organizations immediately Read more […]

The Robin Hood Statists are Coming for You

Statists with Socialist-leaning fiscal policies often get away with invoking the folk hero, Robin Hood. This illustrates a truth I find frustrating. That is, liberals have an uncanny ability to successfully redefine stuff, like words, history, and even popular fiction. I don’t mean that as a compliment, but it is true. I wish our team could do that, frankly. But we are not very good at it. Once they redefine things, it’s well-nigh impossible to put it all right again. If you control the Read more […]

Politicians Convicted of Misappropriation of Funds – We Should Do Same for Fed Government

Does this sound familiar?  A group of politicians are elected to public office, they give themselves huge raises and then raise taxes on the citizens.  Sounds like Washington DC, doesn’t it? The case I’m referring to happened in the Bell, California.  Have you ever heard of Bell, California?  Located in Los Angeles County, Bell has a population of around 35,000.  In 2005, an election was held in Bell to see if the residents wanted to make the town a charter city.  Less than 400 voters Read more […]

Affordable Care Act Allowing IRS to Collect Billions from Health Insurers

Every time I see another report telling us how much more the Affordable Care Act is going to cost the American people, I keep hearing the words of Rep. Nancy Pelosi telling the American people on Meet the Press last July: “…everybody will have lower rates, better quality care and better access.” It’s coverage that’s going down and costs going up, just as opponents predicted. In the latest cost surge of Obamacare, the IRS announced last week that they will begin to collect $8 billion in Read more […]

Declaration of Independence Instructs Us to Throw Off Tyranny of Federal Government

The American colonists were being pressured by the tyranny of the British crown.  King George III was doing his best to strip the colonists of all of their rights and freedoms and force them to submit to his supreme power. Kind of sounds similar to King Barack Obama, doesn’t it? Periodically, I like to re-read the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution as they are the two most important documents in our nation’s history.  I especially like reading them during these times as there Read more […]

Government Pays People to Lay on Beach and Think of Food on Mars

Our nation is on the verge of a financial collapse.  Obama and his liberal cronies have one remedy in mind and this is raising taxes.  Obamacare alone contains over a dozen new taxes that will hit every American, even though Obama keeps saying that he will not raise taxes on middle income America. Republicans are demanding that the solution entails massive spending cuts, which only makes sense.  Any business in the world always starts with spending budget cuts when facing financial difficulties.  Read more […]

California Dug Own Grave and May Soon Be Buried In It

The state of California has one of the largest deficits of any state in the union. They also have one of the highest tax rates of any state in the union. Yet it seems that the more they raise taxes the bigger their deficit grows and this is exactly the same plan that Barack Obama has for America. To start with middle-class workers in California making more than $48,000 per year pay estate income tax rate of 9.3%. This is higher than the state income tax rate for millionaires and 47 other states. Read more […]
