The Crisis is Not Over(3)

In recent weeks I’ve seen a number of articles purporting that the economic crisis is over. They appeared in a myriad assortment of newspapers and web sites. ‘Really?’ I wondered. Perhaps it’s a subliminal attempt to convince the general public to loosen it’s purse strings? If it is, then I can only say it’s a [...]

How Obama’s Panel on Fiscal Responsibility is Losing It’s Integrity(4)

There is a definition for fiscal, which is usually associated with public coffers and one for responsibility often defined as reliability and dependability.

On Friday April 16, 2010, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil suit against Goldman Sachs bank for allegedly selling customers securities it expected would fail, making profits by betting against those securities, and letting a few select customers in on the secret. This comes just days before Obama campaigns for tighter regulations [...]

The Contract with America Led to a Decade of Prosperity(5)

The Contract with America changed our lives. It offered a detailed, comprehensive agenda touching everything from internal congressional reform to national defense, welfare to economic growth, term limits to balancing the budget, crime control to tort reform, individual liberty, economic opportunity, limited government, personal responsibility, and security at home and abroad. These ideas drove President [...]
