    We Stop for Ducks By Norma Zager “Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what’s going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate?” Will Rogers Few Americans haven’t seen a line of baby ducks following the Mama duck across the street. This picture also includes a line of cars stopped on both sides to allow the ducks safe passage. I, too, stop for ducks. Human beings are nothing if not paradoxical. The safety of a baby duck is paramount, and yet we allow the good of our nation to come second to political and...

    Keith Hennessey blog ^ | 8/1/2011 | Keith Hennessey
    The President’s priorities The President knows he will get debt limit increases through early 2013 no matter what House conservatives/Tea Party members do. Those Members can no longer “hold a debt limit increase hostage” before the 2012 election. We could also describe this as eliminating liquidity risk through 2012. Assuming someone doesn’t find a way out of the enforcement mechanisms in the bill (1 in 3 chance), there will be at least $2.1 T in deficit reduction over the next 10 years as a result. While I think that’s a big policy benefit, I’m not sure how important that is...

    How taxes are treated in the Joint Committee This bill does not raise taxes. The $917 B of spending cuts that immediately take effect are just that, spending cuts. No tax increases there. The Balanced Budget Amendment might or might not have a 2/3 voting requirement to raise taxes. That’s up to the House and Senate to decide when they vote on a BBA. It gets complex when you look at the new Joint Committee. I think it’s easier if I break it into four questions: If the Joint Committee process fails, could the automatic sequester mechanism raise taxes? Is...

    I’m going to try to be neutral in this description and put my analysis in a separate post. Debt limit The debt limit will be increased by $2.1 T no matter what Congress does. The debt limit can be increased up to an additional $300 B depending on what Congress does on deficit reduction and a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA). The debt limit increase will happen in three steps: $400 B immediately, then +$500 B, then the remainder after Congress tries to enact further deficit reduction and pass a BBA. Assuming the economy doesn’t go into the tank, this should...

The state of Osama Bin Laden’s soul is only known to God and to himself, but my knowledge of God’s Word gives me every reason to believe that Bin Laden will spend eternity in Hell.

    The establishment media's reportage of the event has been utterly predictable and virtually identical, regardless of the outlet: Seth Meyers was hilarious, President Obama was even more hilarious, the buffoonish Donald Trump was rightfully skewered by both, and the audience loved every minute of it. One small factoid was left out of the media's coverage of the event. A minor detail that I had to research myself, because literally no media outlets reported it. It turns out Seth Meyers is a major Obama supporter and donor. Meyers donated to the Obama campaign on four seperate occasions in 2008, giving a...

 Hate is an unusual and deadly component in the human psyche. It embeds itself deeply like a tick under the skin. Unless removed it festers and sucks the blood of a victim. Its diseases are brutal and deforming. Lyme Disease, for example, can maim and disrupt the normal flow of a victim’s body, corrupting the mind and vital organs.

    At the start of the 112th Congress, my fellow Republicans and I made a commitment to turn the country’s economy around and get Americans back to work. Over the past two years in the minority, we could do little as the Obama Administration’s and Nancy Pelosi’s reckless spending increased our already massive debt by $3.5 trillion and our unemployment rate surged to ten percent. Republicans hit the ground running in January, voting to cut spending by $2.6 trillion by repealing the onerous ObamaCare law. In February, while the Obama administration reported a record-breaking monthly deficit of $223 billion, we simultaneously...

    CBO Director Dr. Douglas Elmendorf has posted the slides he used in a presentation Wednesday to the Institute of Medicine, titled “Health Costs and the Federal Budget.” The presentation obliterates the claims of the President and his allies about the effects of the new laws on federal health spending and the budget. For months the President and his Budget Director correctly argued that the goal of health care reform was to “bend the cost curve down.” The projected path of per capita health spending is unsustainable and will result in three bad outcomes: 1. Those with health insurance will have...

    Last evening, President Obama gave a one on one interview for an Australian Current Affairs program. The video of the 20 minute interview can be accessed at the link. He spoke on numerous subjects and spent nearly 6 minutes on Climate Change, and I have provided some commentary on that area. He again perpetuated the old formulaic statements on the matter, a clever misdirection from what are the facts of the matter. He came across as articulate and in command, but until he checks the facts and tells it like it really is, it's all just talk.
  • Hugo Chavez is Kind of Funny

    Before everyone jumps down my throat here let me say that I know Chavez is a murderous dictator whose ruined a perfectly good country and he hates the US. On top of all that guy seems like he might be slightly gay, I mean he got REALLY excited to meet Sean Penn. More excited than any adult male ever should, with the exception of Bill Maher.

    (for the full post go to: First off, why the hell is this ok? I guess this is an upgrade to having Kim Kardashian at white house but seriously, Jay-Z, and in the situation room no less? Also I’m glad he got to bring his entire crew with him. I mean Jay-z seems like a cool dude, but who wont they let in? I mean next thing we know Joe Biden might actually start to get invited to these meetings. Second, I’m sitting trying to imagine how much worse things would be if Obama didn’t spend half his time...
  • Sarah Palin: Lightning In A Bottle

    The radical left and the media (yes, yes..I know, same thing) have tried to set up a narrative that Sarah doesn’t matter, that she is irrelevant. And yet, they follow her every word. It has become quite comical to watch the Palin deniers twist themselves into knots every time she says or does something. Take this past weekend. Sarah Palin was everywhere. On a weekend that featured not only the Super Bowl but the kick off to the NASCAR season, Sarah was the big story, the one getting all of the attention.

  • Reality & Obama’s Reality: In-Depth Analysis of the President’s First State of the Union Address

    On January 27th, 2010 President Barack Obama delivered his first official State of the Union Address. The speech to me had both a campaign feel, and a Carter-esque “Malaise speech” feel to it. I will explain that later on. In watching Barack Obama’s speech, there was a certain feel to it. It was a very good speech …. But only if you live in a fool’s paradise. In watching the speech, I thought that Barack Obama tried to re-ignite that almost “spiritual sensationalism” he inflicted in his most ardent supporters during the 2008 campaign....

    It seems safe to assume that there’s little danger of a Massachusetts-style, Tea Party-infused Republican upset happening anywhere near 59th Street. Even less of a chance that a half-baked and angry screed against the president, committed to paper and distributed to a fast-moving rush hour crowd in Midtown, will convince anyone of anything. Yet some bold pamphleteer decided to test the odds just a few hours before President Obama’s first State of the Union address Wednesday, as a tipster reported to Gothamist: We just looked out the window and the sky was covered in falling paper. We went outside and...
