the Morning Briefing every morning at no charge.
Fools and their money are soon parted. We are witnessing many of these fools go to Wall Street to blame Wall Street for their money leaving them unwilling or unable to recognize themselves for fools.If you want to see how foolish these people are, consider their demands, which range from nuts to pure insanity.One of the demands that sums it up negative taxation — the government actually paying people who do not work. It’s like a bunch of white kids from the suburbs shot themselves full of gardasil or something. Yeah, that joke is not getting old. You get what I mean.Well, these people apparently forgot that life is not fair and are demanding the government intervene to legislate that life suddenly become fair. They are claiming to be the “99%” against the evil 1% of rich people who work on Wall Street. They are posting pictures to a website holding up their sob stories. Some are terribly tragic, but most? Boo-freakin’-hoo. Life is not, never has been, and never will be fair.I would like to point out to these people that I work three jobs, can’t sell my house in this economy, still am paying massive student loans, and somehow or another do not blame Wall Street for my situation. In fact, I’m one of the 53% — the 54% of Americans subsidizing these people so they can go hang out on Wall Street to complain.Get a job hippies!Please click here for the rest of the post.
George Stephanoupolos asked Barack Obama about banks and their new fees. Of course, Obama could not accept any responsibility for that at all. And along the way he said something pretty damn amazing.This:“You don’t have some inherent right just to– you know, get a certain amount of profit.”Actually, in the free market, on the supply and demand curve, you do have an inherent right to get a certain amount of profit — that certain amount of profit that you derive from your business practices that draw in the maximum amount of profit possible before customers decide you are charging too much or they are not getting value enough to justify their continued business with you.Please click here for the rest of the post.
First it was one national poll, and we could wait and see. Then it was a pair of state polls, and we could hold on for one more national poll.But after the new ABC News/Washington Post poll, there’s no denying it. For now we have a three way Republican Presidential race between Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Herman Cain.Please click here for the rest of the post.
I could hardly sum up more pithily the problem with Mitt Romney’s candidacy in four words than “David Brooks loves him.” Brooks’ column today is revealingly out of step with the party and the nation Romney is seeking to lead.Let’s start with what’s missing from Brooks’ description of the job Romney is applying for.Please click here for the rest of the post.
Proponents of illegal immigration and open borders are constantly propagating a straw-man argument for amnesty that offers false policy choices. They contend that “we cannot possibly send back the illegals without physically deporting every one of them, and therefore, we are forced to grant them amnesty, in addition to a ‘pathway to citizenship.’ Those with some sense of sanity have always realized that the source of the problem is our incentivizing of illegal behavior, and that a concerted effort to enforce the laws would drain the illegal population through “attrition by enforcement.”Now Alabama is showing the rest of the country how we can solve the problem simply by enforcing the laws on the books, or, more accurately, performing the job that the federal government refuses to do.Please click here for the rest of the post.
Starting last week and each week from here on, I’ve decided to focus on a Republican in the House or Senate the Tea Party should consider primarying. I think we are too distracted by Presidential politics and cannot afford to keep on keeping on in the House and Senate.Last week I started with Martha Roby. This week, another one. Each week, based on finding pitiful scores in the Heritage Action for America rankings and considering the districts at stake, I’ll highlight a new one. This should be fun.Please click here for the rest of the post.
