Efficiency in Job Creation!

The “Stimulus” spent $111,000,000 to save 55 jobs. That is more than Two Million Dollars – per job. That’s just ONE example. This travesty illustrates the inefficiency of using a “stimulus” to stimulate the economy. The government takes your tax … Continue reading

Burning the Koran

I think it is wrong for that preacher to have a “burn the Koran day”. Not because I believe the Koran is, in reality, a holy book, but because it is bad manners to trample other people’s beliefs like that. … Continue reading
