Liberty VS Union Power

TV news continuous to regale us with video of Wisconsin’s Democratic State Representatives on the floor of the state Assembly screaming “shame! shame!” at their Republican colleagues after the state Assembly voted to pass Governor Walker’s finance bill.   For two weeks the establishment media has supported the protesters and their vitriolic denunciation of Walker […]

Budget FlimFlam: Spend More & Report Cuts

Much of the media’s “information” about the federal budget is deception made possible by the arcane budgeting process in Congress.  President Obama didn’t invent the process.  But he’s an enthusiastic practitioner of the deception.
