Harry Reid’s lawyer inserts last minute provision in Cromnibus which allows political donations to parties of “$777,600 or more”

Well, it isn’t really so much money in campaigns that the congressional Democrats have a problem with. It is OUTSIDE money they have a problem with. Money not controlled by the party. That’s why this bit of language was inserted into the current spending bill by Harry Reid’s lawyer.

Plus the law firms get paid big time too. Win/win for establishment Washington. Everyone knows that shame has little reward on Capitol Hill.

US Taxpayers Spent Billions on an Iraqi Army With 50,000 ‘Ghost’ Soldiers

The original headline for the attached article is, The Bush Administration Spent Billions on an Iraqi Army With 50,000 ‘Ghost’ Soldiers. 

Anyone who reads us knows that we have no love for the Bush Administration which as far as we are concerned was just the first half of the BOBAMA era aka OBOMBYA era. But the attached story does not indicate that ONLY the Bush administration allocated billions for phantom Iraqi soldiers. I am pretty sure there are and were plenty of “ghost soldiers” in Iraq over the past 6 years too.

Mike Huckabee’s Fight Against Online Gambling (and Libertarians)

Oh no here come the socialcons with their buddies the neocons. Call them the big government wing of the GOP.

Sorry guys but you had your day in the sun, a day which lasted far too long. We understand that you won’t go willingly to the margins. You have too much pride for that. But Huck, c’mon buddy, it’s just pathetic to see you sucking up to Sheldon Adleson. And to be doing it in such an obvious way. To come out and do the holier than thou anti-Internet gambling dance when the guy financing the effort to keep gambling off the Internet OWNS MULTIPLE CASINOS is just, well, pathetic.

Big Banks fear Swiss citizens will vote to reback their money with gold

The big banks and governments don’t want the Swiss people to reback their money 20% with gold. What does that tell you?

Gold is real money. Paper is not. Gold doesn’t rise and fall in price (generally). Paper becomes more or less valuable relative to gold. This concept is lost on the general public. It is not lost on the bankers and the folks in government.

The establishment fears gold money. It reins in their power. Thus the reason they fight gold so ardently and why they are fighting it online and in newspapers today.

Let’s all give thanks for our rogue founders, dissidents, gamblers, hunters, moonshiners, speculators

It’s easy to forget in this time of political correctness, in this time of regulated EVERYTHING, in this time of Black Friday sales, and Oprah Winfrey Shows, airbags, and helicopter parents that this country used to be a very rough and tumble place – and it wasn’t all bad. Indeed America was a blank canvas for many, full of opportunity as much as peril. America was a place where peasants came and carved out a living, in the hopes of achieving much more than just a living. Some, many, of them achieved real wealth. Something which could never have been achieved in Europe where society was stratified and barriers to entry of all sorts abounded.

Why the New York Fed Annoys Republicans and Democrats Alike

By far the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government is not, as one might expect, the CIA, DIA, or some other super-secret intelligence agency. The CIA and other intelligence operations are under control of the Congress. They are accountable: a Congressional committee supervises these operations, controls their budgets, and is informed of their covert activities. It is true that the committee hearings and activities are closed to the public; but at least the people’s representatives in Congress insure some accountability for these secret agencies.
It is little known, however, that there is a federal agency that tops the others in secrecy by a country mile. The Federal Reserve System is accountable to no one; it has no budget; it is subject to no audit; and no Congressional committee knows of, or can truly supervise, its operations. The Federal Reserve, virtually in total control of the nation’s vital monetary system, is accountable to nobody – and this strange situation, if acknowledged at all, is invariably trumpeted as a virtue. – Murray N. Rothbard from The Case Against the Fed

Gruber Has Made At Least $5.9 Million For Government Work

Again, the voters may be stupid but their money is fun to spend.

What individual is paid $5.9 million by the taxpayers over a little more than 10 years? Apparently an individual who believes duping the American public in order to pass a massive new government program which will cost taxpayers billions (probably trillions) more is OK. But the government is US right?
