    As the all but certain September fight over the 2012 Farm Bill looms, Americans would do well to remember that despite the happy, ďGot MilkĒ images we associate with dairy products, in every purchase of milk, cheese, yogurt, and other such products is an extra cost incurred by the governmentís irresponsible dairy programs. These outdated programs inflate prices and put taxpayers on the hook for expensive subsidies while largely benefitting large-scale, high income farm operations. US dairy policy is made up of a complicated set of programs which work both to create steady demand and to raise prices for dairy...

    According to new USA Today/Suffolk University poll the voter turnout next November will be around 1.6% less than it was in 2008. The survey found, ďMost of the non-voters would choose Barack Obama over Mitt RomneyÖĒ A noted political ďexpertĒ thinks Independents will be chased away from the polls by the extremely negative campaigning from Barack Obama and the Democrats, and that is their goal.

  • Environmental Group Exaggerates Number of Jobs 'Green' Energy Mandate Would Create

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 8/17/2012 | Tom Gantert
    The Michigan Environmental Council exaggerated in a press release the number of jobs that would be created by the renewable energy ballot proposal when it erroneously cited how a Michigan State University report calculated jobs. The Michigan Environmental Councilís press release said that the Michigan Energy, Michigan Jobs renewable energy ballot proposal would create 74,495 jobs. However, the report never said it would create 74,495 jobs, but instead said it would create that many "job years." It's an important distinction in economic analysis that the MSU report acknowledges. For example, a person hired by a green company who worked for...

    Who in their right mind would believe Obama and pals?"Thanks for the note" -- but no thanks. That was the response Friday from the Romney team after Obama's campaign manager tried once again to wrench more tax documents from the Republican president candidate, this time by offering to refrain from criticizing Mitt Romney's transparency if he agrees to release five more years of returns. Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades wrote a brief email to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina dismissing the offer. "Thanks for the note. It is clear that President Obama wants nothing more than to talk about Governor...

    Thereís something rotten in the state of Detroit Water and Sewage Department operations. A new report by the independent firm EMA out of St. Paul, Minn., shows massive overspending and recommends that four out of every five jobs be outsourced or eliminated. Stephen Henderson, editorial page editor at the Detroit Free Press, observes that this entity has become a jobs program run for the benefit of its employees, not taxpayers and water consumers: For years, hundreds of thousands of metro Detroiters have been paying millions of dollars for what they thought was water. Instead, they were funding jobs at the...

We have propped up an industry to make it profitable for those who are producing...

    According the USDA estimates, the United States will use approximately 11,885,000 tons of sugar in fiscal year 2012-2013. Yet despite this incredibly large and ever increasing use of sugar, few Americans are aware of the economic price we pay for the governmentís cartel-like control of the US sugar market. With Congress expected to reconsider the 2012 Farm Bill when it returns to DC in September, it is important to understand how this control operates and the economic harm it causes to US interests. Sugar prices in the United States are kept artificially high through a 3-part system of economic controls....

This came as a surprise, because the only reforms on the table before the vote were useful, if comparatively minor tweaks, to the existing defined-benefit system, which creates an additional layer of long-term taxpayer liabilities every time a new school employee is hired. What changed in the hours before that vote was that Sens. Mark Jansen, R-Gaines Township, and Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, two legislators with...

    Three years into their forced marriage with GM, the American taxpayers have seen the value of their investment in GM deteriorate by approximately $24 billion, largely due to continuing European losses.

    Set Our Children Free ^ | 8/16/12 | Tony Caruso
    Another incident of gun violence by an ignorant, misguided bigot, fueled by hate speech and political group ideology. Thatís the standard media mantra every time there is a shooting, especially before all of the facts come to light. The leftist media is quick to point out that talk radio and conservative organizations contribute to these kinds of shootings, but one thing always turns up missing Ė evidence. Despite their failure to find a story fitting their preconceived template, one wonders how they would handle a story that contradicts this narrative. Well, wonder no more. All you have to do is...

    Coach is Right ^ | 8/16/2012 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    A picture of ďtens of thousandsĒ of Barack Obamaís Chicagoís illegal aliens, lining up to complete the process to ďlegallyĒ steal jobs from unemployed/underemployed Americans will prove the adage that ďa picture is worth a thousand words.Ē For Americans searching for work this image has to be downright sickening. It will come back to bite Barack Obama in November. Initially when Barack Obama decided to use our money our jobs and our lives to buy Hispanic votes with his illegal amnesty of illegal aliens it seemed like he had produced a stroke of genius. The media fawned over the president...

    A former Virginia candidate for US Senate says that Democrats intentionally use racial fear because they think African Americans can be manipulated. Bishop E.W. Jackson, President of STAND (Staying True to America‚Äôs National Destiny) says that Vice-President Biden‚Äôs comment, ‚ÄėThey‚Äôre gonna put y‚Äôall back in chains,‚Äô‚ÄĚ is not a gaffe. Jackson says: This is part of an intentional strategy to frighten black Americans. The first hint of this was a Democrat sponsored training class by Maya Wiley, President of The Center For Social Inclusion, given in May to House members. The class was to teach them how to decipher the...

    So welcome to Big Guyís postmodern presidency (PMP) that evolves around his own sun and resides in its own alternate universe. Of course, he didnít build that himself. The MSM built that for him. Allow me to cover some of the more salient points of the PMP universe: In our world this is not the face of racism: Nor is it racism for the New Black Panthers to take Big Guyís idea of ďa civilian military force thatís just as powerful, just as strong, just as well fundedĒ to the next level. So when they say they want their own...

  • A Must See Political Ad That a Helped Newcomer Defeat 12 Term Incumbent in Florida Primary

    This has got to be one of the best, if not the best, political ads of the season. Regardless of where you stand as far as incumbents vs their challengers go, you must admit that this was one great political ad. It very well could be the reason enough voters were influenced to pull the lever for Tea party challenger, Ted Yoho of Gainesville FL, over the 12 term incumbent, Cliff Stearns, in the primary for Florida's 3 district.While I am always happy to see a Tea Party candidate defeat a Rino, I must admit to being a bit confused...

    Do we ever make the best choices to build and serve a great nation? A dollar given is a dollar received by the one in need, yet; It costs $1.20 in donations to deliver $1 in services; It costs $2 in state taxes to deliver $1 in services; and It costs $4 in federal taxes to deliver $1 in services. Plain talk on simple economics, from the National Association of Life Underwriters, explains why big government isnít always a great idea. The closer to the point of need, the better and the more diverse the solutions Ė the American secret....
