August 1, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Smoking is good for the Australian Labor Government’s health: SMOKERS will cough up an extra $5.3 billion in tax to help the Rudd Government plug a huge new hole in its Budget. The unusual election-eve notice of a tax grab, adding $5.25 to the price of a pack of 20 cigarettes […]

Carbon Tax: Won’t Reduce Deficit or Temperature

The Liar’s Tax

July 1, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The most singular aspect of Obamacare is the way Democrats, from the President on down, consistently lied about the fact that it was a tax. Interviewed by George Stephanopolos on ABC News, September 2009, Obama was asked if he rejected the criticism that it was a tax increase. “I absolutely reject […]

It’s the Government, Stupid

May 9, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The political pundits all agree that the November elections will be all about the economy. I suspect that most Americans draw their conclusions about the economy from empirical observations such as whether they or someone they know is out of work, whether shops in their communities are closing, and the price […]

What Debt? Obama’s Insane Spending Binge!

September 21, 2011 by

A visit on Tuesday morning to the websites of various federal departments reveals that this administration can find an excuse to spend millions on anything. Here’s a quick tour. In the wake of the Solyndra […]

Raising Taxes is a Very Old, Very Bad Idea

April 13, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba The absurdity of raising taxes in the midst of a recession that increasingly looks and feels like a depression only underscores the Democrat’s historic and failed policies from the past; the same ones they continue to push these days. In “New Deal or Raw Deal? How FDR’s Economic Legacy has Damaged America”, […]

The Democrat’s Demolition Derby

October 7, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba It is incomprehensible that the Democrats who control the House and the Senate adjourned without extending the Bush tax cuts. If they had extended them by even a year, businesses large and small across the nation would have been able to make plans for 2011. The only thing we know for sure […]

From New Deal T Bad Deal: Government As The Fourth Bubble

April 16, 2010 by


By Newt Gingrich April 15th is an obvious date because it is the annual day when income taxes are due. April 18th is equally important because it will be the 235th anniversary of American militia firing “the shot heard round the world” when they stood up to British professional soldiers at Concord and Lexington and […]

Clue: What’s Borrowed Must Be Repaid

August 4, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Two things spring immediately to mind. Prior to any election, politicians will always say ‘No new taxes.’ Those enamored by the side of politics of the person who says that will always believe it. Then, there’s always an excuse, and it starts something like this. ‘I didn’t know the […]

America Needs A Take-Home Pay Raise

August 2, 2009 by


By Newt Gingrich It’s a frustration I hear all the time. With the mainstream media, Washington insiders and the so-called “experts” in elite universities all singing off the same leftwing song sheet, there is a desperate need for the facts and the arguments that support time honored American values and principles that lead to safety, […]

Red October Looms for ObamaCare + More

The Patriot Post – Fri Digest – Vol. 09 No. 30 THE FOUNDATION “[T]he government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” –James Madison GOVERNMENT & POLITICS […]

What Can We Do?

May 26, 2009 by


By Tim Potts - Democracy Rising Pennsylvania The economy is awful. People are losing their jobs. Home foreclosures are setting modern records. Iconic American corporations are in bankruptcy.

Odds Rise On Bankruptcy Under Obama

March 3, 2009 by


GOING UNDER Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. One of my favorite actors is Peter Sellers. Who can forget him in that classic Kubrick film ‘Doctor Strangelove’ where he played the title role and 2 others also, one of them as President  Merkin Muffley. Two other favorites  of mine starring Sellers are ‘The Party’ and the […]

How Much Will You Be Wanting Then?

January 12, 2009 by


WATCH YOUR WALLET Newt Gingrich Welcome to 2009. Now watch your wallet. With the economy in the deepest crisis since the Great Depression, higher taxes are precisely what we don’t need to restore jobs and growth. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that President-elect Obama seems to understand this and is proposing tax cuts […]

Change, Hope, Hashish and Obama

July 11, 2008 by


A bong hit that melts away reality in a euphoric wave of Zen-like contentment; Intense pleasure of favorite Grateful Dead song & the exquisite pleasure of chewy, warm brownie? Most enlightened liberals consider these lifes ultimate pleasures. They pale compared to sitting at the feet of The Master & drinking the sweet nectar of hope!

Financial Advisors Fear A Dem President

January 14, 2008 by


Funny how Hillary wants to put out a huge $100 billion economic stimulus package, but still wants to kill the Bush tax cuts. Why don’t you just leave the money in the pockets of Americans? (Investment News) Nothing worries financial advisers more than the prospect of a Democrat’s being elected president in November, according to […]
