James Taggart: “He didn’t invent iron ore and blast furnaces, did he?”
Cheryl Brooks: Who?”
“Rearden. He didn’t invent smelting and chemistry and air compression. He couldn’t have invented his Metal but for thousands and thousands of other people. His Metal! Why does he think it’s his? Why does he think it’s his invention? Everybody uses the work of everybody else. Nobody ever invents anything.”
She said, puzzled, “But the iron ore and all those other things were there all the time. Why didn’t anybody else make that Metal, but Mr. Rearden did?”

1) Liberalism is college professors and documentary filmmakers accumulating vast fortunes in a capitalistic system by decrying the evils of capitalism.
2) Liberalism is claiming that the “border is secure” while saying we shouldn’t deport anyone who illegally crosses the border.
3) Liberalism is “environmental activists” flying across the world to ride together in SUVs to posh environmental conferences where they call for everyone else to live like cavemen in order to save the planet.
4) Liberalism is spewing hatred and profanity at conservative women, calling for gun control that leaves women defenseless against rapists and murderers, and celebrating misogynistic pigs like Bill Clinton while accusing OTHER PEOPLE of being engaged in a “war on women.”

The Democrat party has subtly changed the wording, but after all these years it is still crooning the same old racist tunes; updated and syncopated for 2014, of course. The Democrat party “plantation” is the dependence class, with the new harvest being minority voter turnout. The Democrat party can reliably count on minority votes, because they have been telling minorities for the past 45 years that only Democrats “truly care.”

Last year many Wisconsin residents celebrated Wisconsin’s first measurable tax cuts in nearly a decade. In addition to cutting taxes, progress was made in simplifying the tax code as evidenced by the elimination of 17 tax credits, downsizing from five to four tax brackets and eliminating Wisconsin’s depreciation schedules in favor of adopting federal standards. In just over two years, Wisconsin went from billions in the red, to cutting both income and property taxes.
I am pleased we were able to accomplish what we did. At the risk of being the “fly in the punch bowl,” let me state we still have a significant problem. Wisconsin by any measure remains a high tax state.
The praise received for cutting taxes is notable and fair because it signified a significant change in trajectory. However, we can’t kid ourselves, we still have yet to fully implement a pro-growth tax code. It’s analogous to being proud of your 16 year old son for turning off the television and heading off to clean his bedroom, but his bedroom is still a mess.

Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood “The Monster”. But to most Americans today, “Federal Reserve” is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.

How far left was I? So far left my beloved uncle was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party in a Communist country. When I returned to his Slovak village to buy him a mass card, the priest refused to sell me one. So far left that a self-identified terrorist proposed marriage to me. So far left I was a two-time Peace Corps volunteer and I have a degree from UC Berkeley. So far left that my Teamster mother used to tell anyone who would listen that she voted for Gus Hall, Communist Party chairman, for president. I wore a button saying “Eat the Rich.” To me it wasn’t a metaphor.
I voted Republican in the last presidential election.
Below are the top ten reasons I am no longer a leftist. This is not a rigorous comparison of theories. This list is idiosyncratic, impressionistic, and intuitive. It’s an accounting of the milestones on my herky-jerky journey.

Marquis de Lafayette, 18
James Monroe, 18
Gilbert Stuart, 20
Aaron Burr, 20
Alexander Hamilton, 21
Betsy Ross, 24
James Madison, 25
This is kind of blowing my mind…

from Senator Mike Lee (R-UT): “Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register. It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats. The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president.”
From the time of the Ancient Greeks, this time of year has been known as the “dog days,” when the heat and humidity caused “the seas to boil, wine to turn sour, dogs to go mad, and men subject to burning fevers, hysterics, and frenzies.”
Much of the US is certainly not experiencing such climate misery this week, with record low summer temps from Arkansas to Minnesota. But in terms of what is happening to our country politically, economically, culturally and morally, these are indeed the Dog Days of America.
And there doesn’t seem to be any relief in sight. Zero, rather than backing off in the midst of his growing unpopularity and unending scandals is “just getting started,” according to Bryan Preston. He’s “going Soviet.”
Yesterday (7/16) in testimony on Capitol Hill, liberal law professor Jonathan Turley warned that Congress Must Act Against Obama’s Overreach Or Face Self-Destruction:
“A dominant presidency has occurred with very little congressional Opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court. This body is moving from self-loathing to self-destruction in a system that is in crisis.”
Turley thus encouraged the House to pursue suing Zero. Others testifying at the hearing, such as Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) and constitutional law expert David Rivkin, predict victory in the lawsuit against Obama.
