The results of Higher Education?As someone who worked (with the aid of military tuition assistance while on active duty and the GI Bill after) through a Master’s Degree at a Kudzu League (Tulane) University, I have no sympathy for these idiots. I do agree with the girl’s “overeducated” remark because “It’s not what you don’t know that disturbs me, it’s what you know that isn’t true!”

EARMUFFS!!! The craptalker-in-chief’s crap talk has been so craptacular that it’s become difficult to see the crap for the crap. So let’s get crapping.

Washington’s chronic overspending is just like a junkie’s addiction to drugs. Unless the cycle of addiction is broken, our economic and unemployment situation will continue to suffer. Washington is out of time. To avoid hitting rock bottom, Washington must cut spending today.

Ronnie Bryant was vastly outnumbered.

Leaning against a wall during a recent Birmingham, Alabama, public hearing, Bryant listened to an overflow crowd pepper federal officials with concerns about businesses polluting the drinking water and causing cases of cancer.

After two hours, Bryant—a coal mine owner from Jasper—had heard enough and, in a moment being described as “right out of Atlas Shrugged,” took his turn at the microphone:

Nearly every day without fail…men stream to these [mining] operations looking for work in Walker County. They can’t pay their mortgage. They can’t pay their car note. They can’t feed their families. They don’t have health insurance. And as I stand here today, I just…you know…what’s the use? I got a permit to open up an underground coal mine that would employ probably 125 people. They’d be paid wages from $50,000 to $150,000 a year. We would consume probably $50 million to $60 million in consumables a year, putting more men to work. And my only idea today is to go home. What’s the use?

I see these guys—I see them with tears in their eyes—looking for work. And if there’s so much opposition to these guys making a living, I feel like there’s no need in me putting out the effort to provide work for them. So…basically what I’ve decided is not to open the mine. I’m just quitting.

Thank you.

Meanwhile, as the EPA continues its war on Texas, it is spending tax dollars running TV ads that actually use the tagline, “Protect the EPA”. Since when is it the American Way to “protect” the bully?

In the midst of the killing of Osama and a victory for limited government in Canada, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is looking to raise the debt ceiling. This could be a mistake since he and his Obama Administration friends have been undisciplined with the credit card. Reporter Frank McCaffrey spoke with ALG’s Rick Manning about this idea.

Will DC Start Taxing the Internet?

Posted: April 17, 2011 in dc, democrat, tax

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) thinks companies that sell goods online have an unfair advantage over Main Street. How long until DC taxes Internet purchases?

Is this cronyism or the opening move toward adding a national sales tax to all the others?
