#DontDoubleMyGovernment

The solution to unemployment, college expenses, the debt and the deficit is not found in another government program. It is found in less government programs. It is not found in another hand-out from the government. It is found in the American people. It is found in the American character — resilience, hope, determination, perseverance.

The Democrats never proposed a plan of their own, they just sat in the peanut gallery and criticized Republican plans. The Republicans adjusted and adjusted their ideas until it was something neither party could live with — and passed it. What a load of silly fools we elected.

Ubiquitous Malevolence

If everyone was basically good, if we lived in Utopia, Wikipedia would work. But since politics exists, it doesn’t.

That is an official event.” Official, huh? “So it is being funded by taxpayers in battleground states?” Asked the reporter. Carney squirmed and only managed to get out, “He’s the president of the United States.”

Dude, China’s So Rad!

Texas tried to do the only sane thing a state could do in the face of the TSA: Ban them. And what happened? A bunch of Feds showed up — probably dressed like mobsters — and threatened to cancel all flights to Texas if the bill passed. What a heart warming story. I wonder if […]
