Dividing the spoil$ (In the new Congress)

This essay is pretty good with a couple of important exceptions.

Even though Moyers and Winship take the Dems to task for being a part of the crony capitalist game in Washington DC they still clearly see the Dems as preferable to the GOP which they refer to as the Guardians of Privilege. Though there is some truth to this jab the Dems are absolutely a party of privilege also, perhaps even worse than the GOP. That said, both parties are terrible.

Obama asked if a future president could just issue an executive order absolving citizens of tax burdens: “Absolutely not!” (Video)

I have no love for George Stephanopoulos but his stock went up about tenfold in my book with the below question.

George makes a great point. If the president doesn’t have to faithfully execute the law on immigration (He does, the Constitution expressly says that he does.) why should a future president have to execute the law faithfully in all sorts of other areas including taxes? Boy, Obamacare would fall apart pretty much overnight.

Bill Black: Why and how Holder let all the big bank CEOs off the hook (Video)

“Responsibility remains so diffuse, and top executives so insulated that any misconduct could again be considered more a symptom of the institution’s culture than a result of the willful actions of any single individual.” -Eric Holder on why he “could not” prosecute anyone in the top echelons of the big banks. What a guy.

Bill Black is no ideologue. He is someone who is committed as far as I can tell to legitimate justice in massive system of financial fraud we know today as “banking.” No doubt he and I would disagree about the size and power of government generally and probably about the fundamental nature of money itself. However, he helped prosecute the case against bankers during the S&L crisis and he is extremely knowledgeable, not to say was also effective.

“I am not a dictator, I’m the President.” – Barack Obama

Tonight is a sad night for this country. Tonight President Obama is expected to declare his intention to unilaterally bypass the Congress of the United States – a Congress that was elected by the American people – to declare what is essentially “amnesty” or at least the beginnings of “amnesty” for illegal immigrants in the United States.

The ACA and filing season. Be afraid

The Obamacare open enrollment period is upon us again. But as the author of the attached article says, enrollment isn’t the biggest challenge for the program over the next 6 months. When April 15th comes a LOT of individuals are going to be paying penalties they don’t realize they are going to have to pay.

We said Obamacare was a crony capitalist jack for the insurance companies, Now even the New York Times agrees with us

It’s about time, but it’s too late now. I guess there is some comfort in knowing that the even the statist Gray Lady sees what Obamcare actually is. Though I am going to guess that the New York Times editorial board isn’t going to come out for repeal even though the program was sold with out and out lies and is pouring billions in taxpayer dollars into the pockets of the health insurance companies.
