  • President's Gamesmanship Hurts Economy

    The Aspen Times ^ | December 13, 2012 | Charlie Leonard
    As the president gets closer to achieving his most cherished political ambition — raising taxes on the top earners in our country — I've started to wonder what satisfaction he, and those he's convinced this is a good idea, will actually experience. Forget all the silly speeches. By any seriously objective standard, the president's tax increases will do little or nothing to reduce his deficits or his approaching legacy of extraordinary national debt. Without increasing taxes more broadly and without structurally reforming our entitlement programs, which now appears likely, the president's plan changes virtually nothing about the direction or funding...

    Note:  The following letter is co-signed by 185 of the nation's economists including Dr. Sanjai Bhagat, Provost Professor of Finance, University of Colorado, and Contributing Editor to A Line of Sight.  http://sanjaibhagat.com  Further information is available from the National Taxpayers Union, click here.  An Open Letter to Congress: December 11, 2012Dear Members of Congress:As the nation approaches the so-called "fiscal cliff," we, the undersigned economists, urge Congress to carefully consider the relative merits of tax increases and spending restraint. Increasing taxes would likely slow or reverse our nation's fragile economic recovery and undermine long-term growth. Restraining the growth of expenditures,...

    No .. I’m not talking about the fiscal cliff, nor am I talking about the almost $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities we face as a nation. Iran and a nuke? Yeah .. that’s serious all right, but I’m told that we are messin’ with Iran right now in ways that you couldn’t even imagine – ways that could derail their nuclear plans for some time to come. Is the real problem our sagging economy? An oncoming second recession? The growth of government dependency? Sure … all of those are problems and all are difficult to deal with … but they...

    MULVANE, Kansas -- A 31-year-old burglary suspect is listed in serious but stable condition after he was shot in the chest by a homeowner in rural Mulvane. It happened about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. Police say the homeowner found the man in his garage and held him at gunpoint while his wife called 911. "The suspect threatened him, came at him," said Capt. Mike Yoder with the Sumner County Sheriff's Department. "He fired one round. It struck him in the upper chest."

  • 18 Democratic senators revolt against Harry Reid on Obamacare tax

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12/13/2012 | Patrick Howley
    Eighteen Democratic U.S. Senators and senators-elect sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last week calling for a “delay in the implementation” of the medical device tax in Obamacare, the Wall Street Journal reports. The provision was an integral part of the version of the Obamacare law, which was passed in the Senate under Reid’s stewardship in 2009. It is set to take effect on January 1, 2013. An effort to repeal the provision failed in Congress in June. At the time, Reid characterized the proposed repeal as a Republican attack on Obamacare. “The medical technology industry directly...

    According to S&P's latest Monthly Dividend Action Report [Excel spreadsheet], the month of November 2012 was a record month that saw some 3,327 U.S. companies make some kind of declaration involving their dividends (that's not the record!) Here are the astounding numbers: 197 companies acted to increase their cash dividend in the 8th best month on record (since January 2004), and the most in any November on record. The all-time record for regular dividend increases announced in a single month is 246, which was set in February 2007. 228 companies acted to make a special cash dividend payment to their...

    Not so many moons ago, President Obama urged us all to “make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.” He Who Heals advocated “a more civil and honest public discourse” in the wake of the January 2011 Tucson massacre. As usual, though, the White House has granted Big Labor bullies a permanent waiver from the lofty edicts it issues to everyone else. This week, menacing union goons unleashed threats, profanity and punches in Michigan, which is now poised to become a “right-to-work” state. Obama met the initial outbreak of...

    Via Mediaite, this is worth watching if only to see McCaskill mouth a bit of ancient biological determinism that would have set the left off on a two-day screech bender had she been a Republican man. I think the clip's worst sin is how cloying it is: Diane Sawyer decided to bring the women of the Senate together to talk about capital-w Women, so naturally some self-serving CW about capital-w Women must get said. Thank you, Susan Collins, for handling the easy lay-up. I'd like to hear more from her and McC about why compromise is a virtue in itself...

  • WIND ENERGY: America’s Most Favored Industry

    National Review ^ | 12/13/2012 | Robert Bryce
    In the history of American business, it’s difficult to find an industry that has enjoyed more political favoritism than the wind-energy sector now enjoys. The wind industry gets subsidies, mandates, and a de facto exemption from prosecution under some of America’s oldest wildlife laws. And the wind-energy lobby is doing all it can to make sure that this favoritism is maintained. With the lame-duck session of Congress now under way, the American Wind Energy Association and its allies on Capitol Hill have begun a lobbying effort to extend the Production Tax Credit, the 2.2-cent-per-kilowatt-hour subsidy that the wind sector has...

    Any of us who have come to Christ later in life know the factors that led us to Him. The Spirit was tugging at me for a while. C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity started it. Like me, he was once an atheist. Until he could be one no more. “In 1929, I gave in, and admitted that God was God,” wrote Lewis, “perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.” A few committed people of faith did the rest for me, as I witnessed in them the power of the Holy Spirit. It was the power of their...
  • The $10,000 Degree: Instead of increasing financial aid, two states are decreasing college tuition.

    National Review ^ | 12/13/2012 | Katrina Trinko
    As college costs rise rapidly in most places, Texas and Florida are trying to implement something that has become a radical notion: a degree that costs only $10,000. Texas governor Rick Perry announced this goal for his state last year. (Perry was inspired by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who had remarked that online learning ought to make it possible for students to pay just $2,000 per year for college.) In November, Florida governor Rick Scott announced that he, too, wanted to see state colleges offer bachelor’s degrees for $10,000 or less. In Texas, ten colleges have signed on (some of...

    Forbes ^ | 12/13/2012 | Louis Woodhill
    For the good of the country and the survival of the Republican Party, the GOP must allow President Obama to take America off the so-called “fiscal cliff” on January 1. Given the intransigent position that Obama has taken on raising marginal tax rates, any deal that the Republicans in the House of Representatives could conceivably make with him before the end of the year would be counterproductive. It would impede economic growth, and thereby actually reduce the present value of future federal revenues. Such a deal would also further damage the Republican “brand”, which has been trashed by the “clueless...

    Once upon a time there once was a country so beautiful with spacious skies, with purple mountain majesties where everyone sang "God shed his grace on thee". It promoted freedom of religion and allowed Christianity to grow. It gave opportunities for everyone to better themselves in education and create businesses that not only made them rich but allowed those in poverty to prosper and become middle class citizens.

    IBD ^ | 12/13/2012 | Prof. Walter Williams
    Suppose you saw a building on fire. Would you seek counsel from the arsonist who set it ablaze for advice on how to put it out? You say, "Williams, you'd have to be a lunatic to do that!" But that's precisely what we've done: turned to the people who created our fiscal crisis to fix it. I have never read a better account of our doing just that than in John Allison's new book, "The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure." Allison is the former CEO of Branch Banking and Trust, the nation's 10th largest bank. He assembles evidence...
