Why does it take a guest on Comedy Central to point out that our PROGRESSIVE INCOME TAX was the brainchild of Teddy Roosevelt – the Republican president John McCain most admires? A progressive income tax is the foundation of redistribution – was Teddy Roosevelt a socialist?
Why does it take that […]
I can’t imagine you won’t, but this is fun.
Bob Neinast: ‘I’m a Republican, but, as I like to put it, a Republican with a Brain. Clearly Obama is the only sane choice this year. However, his ‘redistribution’ comment is killing him here in Ohio. There really is talk […]
But, no, the bear market is not over.
Alaska gets way more from Washington per capita than any other state, something like $5 for every $1 it sends to Washington. Indeed, by and large it’s the traditionally ‘red’ states that get more than they pay, at the expense […]
