JFK again…

JFK: “Our tax system still siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power and reduces the incentive for risk, investment and effort- thereby aborting our recoveries and stifling our national growth rate” (1963).

No more limp-wrists for world leaders. I’m tired of it. Elect someone with some nuts and brains. Please.

Stimulate This

I just found this quote from JFK, on Riggsword, regarding tax cuts and their effects on the economy. Seems ‘ol JFK learned a lot about stimulation and it wasn’t just from Marilyn Monroe.

“Lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and so raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased – not a reduced – flow of revenues to the federal government.”

– John F. Kennedy, Jan. 17, 1963, annual budget message to the Congress, fiscal year 1964 (WorldNetDaily)

What’s so difficult to understand?

Jeff Jacoby of Boston Globe examines Obama’s economics

And guess what True Believers: It’s all “Progressive” wealth redistribution. I’m not rich. Maybe I never will be. But I’ll fight with with my vote the right of people who earn a lot to keep more of it. Or maybe in five years if and when I leave the service, I’ll put my knowledge and Top Secret clearance to work making some big bucks–and that’s what’s so great about America, The Land of Choices. Here’s the article: http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2008/09/14/seeing_through_obamanomics/

I’m grateful for everything that has been given to me, by willing and loving friends and family. However, I’d never want the government to force them to give me any more than they wanted. In Obama’s Bill O’Reilly interview, Obama equates over-taxing the wealthy with a giving heart. In mine and Jacoby’s book–it’s called unfair tax burden, and it’s simply wrong.

The Democrats in Cali are at it again

The Dems are at it again.

In their effort to demonize everything your dad did and does, and replace dads actions with everything Elton John did and does, California Democrats are proposing an increase of 30 cents a can on beer in their fine Moonbat state. I found this story on Moonbattery.com, as well as the tasteful picture of the nubile lasses, posted to the left. Yes, Germany still produces some good products it seems. (Mike, before you say it, I know BMWs are German. I’m just saying…)

What would Ben Franklin and Samual Adams think?

We may be looking at another Peasants Revolt here, but this time it won’t be led by Thomas Muentzer, and it won’t be about religious reformation. It’ll be led by Harry Coddlesikes, owner of the local laundromat, and it’ll be about a man’s inborn right to drink a cheap cold one after a long day’s work…
