We who are fortunate to bask in the light of the all-knowing (sarcasm on full) are protected against the foolishness of DC’s policy mistakes the rest of the nation suffers. Ed Morrissey notes an enlightening Washington Post article that points this out in spades, […]

Dem Senate Shuts Government After Years Of Failing To Pass Budgets

I Choose: The Fiscal Cliff

Hard to believe this, but after a lot of thought I think the best path forward for this nation is to let Harry Reid and President Obama have their way and let sequestration go into effect. The Tea Party/Libertarian in me has concluded that another round of deficit spending and kicking the can down the […]
