#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.

CREEPY

The argument against the Chinese model is the strongest because it is both economic and moral. Stern isn’t calling for a change in economic systems, rather a political change.

The beauty of the American Dream is that it’s whatever you make it out to be. If you want to be a graphical designer, you have the freedom to do so. Just like your freedom to be a banker, investor, bartender, hotel manager, trash guy, or business owner. The American Dream lies in liberty, not money or things.

We Will Fight Them On the… Whatever…

Obama has left all of the ideological doors open so that he can pop in and out of them at the times when they are popular. In his attempts to look strong he makes himself look weak because trying to prove his strength makes him look insecure. Yet, if he does not show some courage and leadership, he will be accused of the same fault. He does not cling to an ideology — just to himself.

Period of Consequences

The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences.” -Winston Churchill While this quotes context pertained to the days shadowing WWII, it still applies to the U.S.’s unsupportable spending and racking debt. A period of consequences […]

The economic trends at the beginning of the year could be called “promising” and current trends could be looked upon as “not-so-great.”  Some still find hope that the economy will soon recover, but when recent trends are compared with ones during the Great Depression it gets a little too close for comfort.

“The economy is back!” They proclaimed in May. “Not so,” was the resounding reply. Many in Washington (D.C.) boasted about jobs growth saying that in May 431,000 jobs were created. The problem is that 411,000 of those jobs were temporary government jobs (Census workers.) And that left only 41,000 jobs made in the private sector […]

Domitrovic goes through the problems, and the solutions (working […]
