Corzine loses NJ election

posted by Susan Johnson

I’m a little surprised that NJ booted Corzine. I guess I shouldn’t have been given our history. We’ll take high taxes and massive government spending for a while and then we say, “Enough!” It happened with Florio in 1993 and […]

Michael Moore: “Capitalism is anti-Jesus”

posted by Susan Johnson

I’m sorry but I’m having trouble taking this guy seriously since he has to be in the 1% of the wealthy, given the amount of money his films generate. So, when he says things like this, I can’t get over […]

Michael Moore demonstrates the superiority of capitalism

posted by Susan Johnson

So, in communist countries, I’m sure that the propagandists make decent money but do you think it’s at the level of Michael Moore? Would a propagandist’s film be promoted by a magazine in a penthouse furnished by sponsors: Following the […]

Bernanke: Recession is very likely over

Commerce Secretary: Americans should pay for the carbon footprint of goods they consume

posted by Susan Johnson

Of course the Obama administration wants us to pay more for our goods during a recession. That makes a whole lot of sense and though this may sound like it would be a boon for our manufacturers, raw material prices […]

Did you know the stimulus plan wasn’t meant to simulate the economy?

posted by Susan Johnson

Me neither: Turns out the $787 billion “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act” (AARA) was not designed for full economic recovery, but rather to “stabilize” the downturn. That’s the word from White House officials today, who held off-camera briefings with reporters […]

Corizine’s running mate?

posted by Susan Johnson

May be Randal Pinkett, a political novice but the winner of season 4 of “The Apprentice.” Yes, just what NJ needs someone who doesn’t know that they’re doing (especially given the fact that our president doesn’t know what he’s doing). […]

Congressional Democrats complaining about stimulus spending

posted by Susan Johnson

How in the world does this statement make any sense: @markknoller Administration is taking heat, even from Congressional Democrats, that stimulus money not being spent fast enough to create jobs. I just love the way that they shift blame. We […]

Unemployment is at 9.5%

posted by Susan Johnson

That’s the highest number since 1983. We lost 467,000 non-farm jobs in June which was worse than analysts had predicated. The average working week is 33 hours, that’s the shortest week since the Labor Department started keeping track (1964). And […]

Greenpeace opposes the Cap and Tax bill

Wow! Isn’t this a grand day when lefties and the rightwing can get together to defeat a bill? Doesn’t it make you want to join hands and sing “Kumbaya?” Of course we want it defeated for entirely different reasons but […]

Gibbs reply to Bush “We won”

Obama promises to create more than 600,000 jobs

posted by Susan Johnson

Since he hasn’t created the jobs he promised if his stimulus plan was passed, why should we believe him now? In fact he promised that unemployment wouldn’t raise above and here it is at 9.4 and we’ve lost 1.6 million […]

Obama: “It’s safe to say we have stepped back from the brink.”

Obama signs bill allowing loaded guns into national parks

Billionaire changes residences to avoid NY wealth tax

posted by Susan Johnson

Now instead of getting more money from this guy, NY loses over $13 thousand a day in revenue. Really silly to tax the wealthy beyond what they are willing to pay when there are states like Florida that do not […]

States cut jobs despite Obama’s stimulus plan

Wealthy Obamanites are shocked that he really is a class warriror

It is absolutely amazing to me that anyone would be shocked by Obama’s desire to even the playing field, to end this “unfair system” where the rich get richer and the poor never get a break. Maybe they thought he […]

Weak demand at US Treasury bond auction

Rudy won’t be campaigning on gay marriage

When I read that Rudy was making comments about gay marriage in preparation of a run for governor of NY, I thought it was a stupid move. I don’t think it’s a major issue right now (even though the governor […]

Obama’s trying to save millions in his $3.5 trillion budget

Garofalo on the Tea Parties: “This is about hating a black man in the White House”

Squatters living in foreclosed houses

This actually sounds like a good idea to me. Squatters are screened and they stay in the house until they are kicked out by the bank. If they don’t destroy the property, they’re providing a much needed service for their […]

Comparisons between current spending and spending in the past. Pretty scary stuff! It’s amazing to me that we are just letting it happen:(via)

With Obama running GM…

Paul Ryan: Um…I didn’t know AIG bonus tax was unconstitutional

The AIG Bus Tour

Thugs! Leave it to lefties not to understand incentive pay. If they understood the concept, they wouldn’t fight so hard against merit pay for teachers. In the tour, dubbed “Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous,” protesters took a bus that […]
