This Man Needs His Teleprompter – Insurance Premiums to Drop %3000?

March 15th, 2010 · No Comments

Wow!  Where is the mainstream media on this?  I’m just not very impressed.  He’s not very good on his feet, he clearly has no clue about how businesses work and he’s wrong about what the Republicans have proposed.  This is not hope and change but demagoguery. It’s also not true. HT: Greg Hengler at Townhall

Behind the Kit – Government bureaucracy makes people stupid and destroys entrepreneurialism.

September 10th, 2009 · No Comments

And unfortunately most (not all –if you work for the government I’m sure you are the exception) of the people who work for […]

November 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Yesterday’s announcement that the president-elect would almost certainly use his executive order power to curtail previously authorized drilling on some public lands signals that the Obama Administration will be a friend of rising oil prices.
