Democrats Pave the Road to Ruin

Democrats Pave the Road to Ruin

Four times last month, pollsters gauged voters' opinion of the Democratic-run Congress and four times they came back showing almost 3 in 4 Americans disapproving of its performance. But if voters think they hate Congress now, just wait until next January when, as expected, they twin a Democratic Congress with a Democratic president who today is Congress' most liberal member.

Besides ensuring the continued crippling increases in energy prices that will leave tens of millions of Americans shivering in their homes for many winters to come while guaranteeing the death of millions of jobs and a more rapid decline in Americans' standard of living, Democrats intend to pursue their socialist utopia with even more deficit spending, a record tax increase and wholesale disincentives to work, invest and save.

Their 2009 budget, which narrowly passed last month, raises federal spending to a record $3.1 trillion. But it does nothing to address the projected deficit that some say could reach a half-trillion dollars; boosts federal spending by an average of almost $130 billion annually over the next five years; and projects another half-trillion in phantom revenues by 2014.

Further, it forecasts a small budget surplus by 2012 by pretending the war against Islamic terrorism will be over by Dec. 31, 2009; inflicting the Alternative Minimum Tax on more than 20 million middle-class Americans; and allowing the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts on income-tax rates, capital gains and dividend income expire in 2010, which would mean a record tax increase of nearly $3 trillion by 2018 and a resumption of the Democrats' punitive assault on Americans' successes and savings.

Based on calculations of a number of public and private agencies, the 116 million taxpayers will see an average increase of $1,800 in their annual tax bill come 2011, which does not account for anything the Democrats might do in the interim. For 48 million couples, the spike will total $3,000; even the elderly ($2,200) and the poor ($1,600) will pay more. Meanwhile, the percentage of income taxes paid by the top 1 percent will fall from 60 to 57. The average tax increase for Connecticut families is estimated at $4,300.

At the same time, the Democrats propose to do nothing about the $52 trillion in unfunded spending over the next 50 years in Social Security and Medicare.

During their 12 years at the helm, Republicans were poor stewards of the public treasury. But giving the keys to government to the Democrats would spell certain fiscal and economic disaster.

President Bush Can Take Pride in Scorn

Bush Can Take Pride in Scorn
By Mark Davis

There has been no shortage of ridiculous articles this year evaluating how America's image will need serious refurbishing after the "damage" exacted by the Bush years.

One would presume that the most "damaging" element of the Bush legacy has been the seven years of the war on terror. Oh, how he - and we - are despised from the cafés of Paris to the sidewalks of Berlin, from the coffee shops of Cairo to the market squares of Caracas, all because we have spent the years since 9/11 trying to reform the part of the world that wishes we were all dead.

It is equal parts sad and scary that an entire political party and millions of its adherents in America believe that we should guide foreign policy by how much of the world likes us.
This is as fundamentally stupid as trying to raise a child by being a buddy instead of a parent. That is a sure recipe for a rotten, indulged, unappreciative kid.

If you think it an insulting condescension to analogize America and the world to a parent's lessons for a spoiled child, you are completely correct, and that is my precise intent. Much of the world deserves such derisive regard, and worse.

Europe doesn't know what an enemy is any more. The Middle East is so filled with murderous lunatics that rational voices are drowned out. And from Latin America to Asia to Africa, there is so much tyranny, terror and corruption that no single U.S. president could possibly make a sizeable dent.

But this one has tried, and for that he is despised by America's enemies around the world and political enemies at home.

He should wear their scorn like a badge of honor. I would love to see a day when America is admired consistently from continent to continent. But let the world admire us because we have done the right things, even when unpopular, not because we changed our definition of what is right to appease evil leaders and misguided masses around the globe.


They always say if the opposition minds that much, he must be doing something right! LOL!

The Ugly American

Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood

Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
By Daniel Pipes

As Barack Obama's candidacy comes under increasing scrutiny, his account of his religious upbringing deserves careful attention for what it tells us about the candidate's integrity.

Obama asserted in December, "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim. "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya]. But I've never practiced Islam." In February, he claimed: "I have never been a Muslim. … other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when I was a child [Indonesia, 1967-71] I have very little connection to the Islamic religion."

"Always" and "never" leave little room for equivocation. But many biographical facts, culled mainly from the American press, suggest that, when growing up, the Democratic candidate for president both saw himself and was seen as a Muslim.

Obama's Kenyan birth father: In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. (1936–1982) was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named "Hussein".


Leader Losing It

Leader Losing It
By Mark Hemingway

Senate meltdown.

There was a remarkable exchange on the floor of the Senate this past Thursday between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. It offers pretty stunning evidence of how personally petty Reid is, as well as his penchant for defining “partisanship” as anything that keeps him from getting his way.

The particulars here aren’t terribly important, but what happened was this: The Senate was voting on a Medicare bill bloated with new spending. The bill was also an attempt to prevent cuts in payment rates to doctors who treat seniors on Medicare, and Democrats wanted to pay for that by taking the funds from Medicare Advantage, a private fee-for-service plan. The president would likely have vetoed the bill in its current form and Senate Republicans opposed the gutting of Medicare Advantage, so Senate Republicans blocked the bill.

The trouble is that if the Senate doesn’t resolve the issue very soon, doctors will stop receiving Medicare funds. So Republicans proposed a 30-day extension to allow more time to hammer out a compromise. Democrats blocked the proposed extension. The impasse here caused Reid to go apoplectic on Mitch McConnell (I’ve highlighted the juicy parts):


Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Sites on its Blogger Platform

Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Sites on its Blogger Platform
By Warner Todd Huston

It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned blogging system that has an anti-Obama message.

Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched. Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. Boy, it must be nice for Barack Obama to have an ally powerful enough to silence his opponents like that!
