Compromise

I notice Harry Reid is complaining that the Republicans are not offering any “compromising” in the stop-gap spending bill. When Democrats controlled both the house and the senate, Democrats most certainly were not interested in any sort of compromise. It … Continue reading

Democrat Wisconsin Senators Run Away!

Will the Federal Government Shut Down?

The government may shut down if the Democrats and Republicans don’t reach a compromise on the budget. Now, seriously, is this a bad thing? After all < Snort! Cough! >, our biggest single problem is the massive overspending the government … Continue reading

One Trick Pony

Obama is like the man who, since he only had a hammer, all his problems started looking like nails. He seems to think that the only tool he has is to buy more government, on credit. Every single thing he’s … Continue reading
