Speaker Boehner Thinks You’re a “Knuckledragger”

Well isn't this just special? It's candid moments like this when our "leaders" in Washington let slip out what they really think about us, and the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives is no different. When speaking recently to Greta Van Susteren on FoxNews regarding the TARP bailout, Speaker Boehner had this to say: [...]

Here’s What It Looks Like from Where I’m Sitting

News is flying by real fast. Grab your hat, it's gonna get windy. The European Central Bank (ECB) is fighting a losing battle.

There is no money; the ECB has invented a massively [...]

Bankster-In-Chief: “We Must Have More Debt!”

...and, of course, more taxes, because someone has to pay for all of this borrowing, you see. You debt slaves out there aren't deep enough in it yet. I can still see the tops of some of your heads. How the hell do you expect us to do a thorough asset-stripping if you still have [...]

The Tax Increase Con Game

Leftist policies are often (and correctly) described as "tax and spend." After the stimulus bill passed, though, some flipped the phrase to "spend, then tax," anticipating that the Left would ultimately demand higher taxes to reduce the gargantuan deficit they created (and we opposed). We now have proof that the change in terminology was correct as well: [...]

Asset-Stripping: A Term To Remember

It's really very simple, very insidious, very effective, and it wears a suit. First, it's important to understand the main operational aspect of banking: counterfeiting. Ooops, did I say counterfeiting? I mean "Fractional Reserve Banking." [...]

Eric Cantor needs to hear from us on the debt ceiling

An excerpt from my latest post on redstatevirginia.com: We heard all kinds of doomsday prophesies from the Washington Spenders about how the world would literally end if America didn’t raise its debt ceiling in time. Yet when we reached it, all Treasury Secretary Geithner had to do was move some funds around to keep us [...]
