237 Years

237 years ago, some brave men on the east coast pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to stand up for liberty and spit in the face of tyranny.

Imagine That – Tax Hikes Backfire On The Greeks

In what can only be described as Shock and Awe II, Greek politicrats were dumbfounded yesterday as reports came in showing that recent tax hikes did NOT raise expected state revenue. Instead, tax revenue in the economically bankrupt country fell by 16 percent in January. Our friends at ZeroHedge.com go on to state: tax revenues … Continue reading

Arrgghh! Phil – WTF???

Some things really tick us off and Political Correctness in the face of logic and reasoning may very well top the list. Earlier this week, PGA Golfer Phil Mickelson expressed his rightful concern that higher taxes – federal and the state of California where he resides – will lead to some ‘drastic decisions’ in 2013. … Continue reading

Get Ready To Pay More At The Pump

ObamaCare Already Over Budget – And Growing

And it hasn’t even been implemented yet!  As being reported at Beltway Confidential, business owners will pay $4 billion more in taxes under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA)  than the Congressional Budget Office had previously expected. Go figure – and it’s only going to get worse. The thought of Nancy Pelosi and all the other … Continue reading

Fedzilla Roars

Quoting an old Okie, “How much rice can a damn Chinaman eat?” It applies to our federal government and the profligate spenders in Congress. They just can’t get enough. See, Eduardo Saverin, co-founder of Facebook and originally citizen of Brazil, became a US citizen in 1998. But after graduating from Harvard, he moved to Singapore … Continue reading

Americans Pay More In Taxes than for Food, Clothing and Shelter Combined

The Tax Foundation is reporting that this year Americans will pay more than $150BB more in taxes than they will on personal necessities. How sad is that? You work your butt off to pay for wasteful entitlement programs, fraudulent tax refunds for illegal aliens and crony capitalism projects like Solyndra and it adds up to more than you … Continue reading
