Welfare For Millionaires

By Da King Published: October 31, 2011

I'm offended when politicians talk about raising taxes, because the government already wastes so much taxpayer money. It's obscene. The pols treat the taxpayers like their own personal ATM. It has to stop. If anyone in this country needs a union, it's the Taxpayers Of The United States.

I'm happy to report a small bit of progress in this area. The Senate just took measures to stop subsidizing millionaire farmers with our tax dollars, though it's hard to fathom how the pols ever STARTED subsidizing millionaire farmers in the first place:

Peter Schiff's Fair Share

By Da King Published: October 26, 2011

Peter Schiff is a financial expert, the CEO of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. He's been in the financial industry for a very long time, and he's part of the top 1% the Occupy Wall Street protestors are going after. Watch as Schiff goes into the crowd of OWSers and asks them straightforward questions about taxes and business. The lack of straight answers from the OWSers illustrates their simplemindedness. Once you get past their canned talking points, there's nothing else there.

Miscellaneous Thoughts

By Da King Published: October 26, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protestors are frauds. They hold up signs protesting against crony capitalism and the influence of special interests, while at the same time every proposal we hear from them is about redirecting wealth into OWS hands and OWS causes. They aren't against crony capitalism. They are FOR crony capitalism, provided they are the cronies. OWS is a movement with it's hand out. The OWSers ARE lobbyists. They ARE special interests.

The so-called Robin Hood Tax proposed by the OWSers is mis-named (proving for the thousandth time that the OWSers ain't none too bright). As Michelle Malkin points out on her website, Robin Hood stole from the tax man (the government) to give to the poor. Robin stole from Prince John and his IRS agent, the Sheriff Of Nottingham. The OWSers are in effect a pro-government group, advocating for Prince John, in the hopes he will be a generous Prince (the vaunted 'benevolent tyrant') and redistribute stolen taxpayer funds back to the OWSers. That makes the OWSers not only lobbyists, but lobbyists against liberty, who want to use the gun of government to forcibly extract funds from the people who earned them. In a more honest world, the Robin Hood Tax would be called the Sheriff Of Nottingham Tax.

Coming Back From Iraq

By Da King Published: October 24, 2011

When President Obama announced that all US troops will be coming home from Iraq by the end of the year, he said it was a campaign promise fulfilled. He didn't bother to remind us it was George W. Bush's promise that was being fulfilled, not his own. Obama's campaign promise was to have us out of Iraq in sixteen months. That Obama promise was broken. Bush is the one who negotiated with the Iraqis to have US troops out of Iraq by the end of 2011. Obama stuck to the Bush timetable. Obama also forgot to tell us that the USA has been negotiating to extend our troop stay in Iraq:

Qaddafi Sleeps With The Fatwas

By Da King Published: October 21, 2011

What can I say about the demise of Libyan strongman Myanmar Godaffy, the man whose name we never learned to spell ? Quadiffi lived by the sword and died by the sword. His death serves as a warning to would-be dictators everywhere. Your injustices, terrorist acts, and totalitarian trampling of the people's rights will no longer be tolerated, at least not for more than 42 years, max.

Congratulations to President Obama, the liberal who could show George W. Bush a thing or two about being a neoconservative. Godhaffi is the third major bad guy to go to the great spider hole in the sky on Sheriff Obama's watch this year. Awesome. Hopefully, Kwaddaffi, Bin Laden, and Awlaki are all dodging fireballs from Satan in hell as they glimpse the 72 virgins dancing about just beyond their reach. Every time a terrorist bites it, an angel gets it's wings.

All This "Austerity" Is Killing Us

By Da King Published: October 18, 2011

"It is hard to understand politics if you are hung up on reality. Politicians leave reality to others. What matters in politics is what you can get the voters to believe, whether it bears any resemblance to reality or not". - Thomas Sowell

Liberals from here to eternity are wringing their hands over the alleged austerity brought to our federal government by those Tea Party-led House Republican insurgents. Liberals are certain that all this crazy slashing of government spending will send the country into economic chaos, because everyone knows the only good economy is one with a $1.3 trillion deficit (see Sowell quote above). President Obama is on the

Transparency, By Any Other Name...

By Da King Published: October 16, 2011

"Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this Presidency" - Barack Obama.

In March 2011, President Obama was given a "transparency award" from five different open government advocate groups. The award was presented to Obama in a private White House ceremony closed off from reporters and the public. Ironically, Obama received his transparency award in secret, because it could have proved very embarrassing to the President if reporters had brought up any of the following information at his TRANSPARENCY award celebration:

Obama Conjures Election Wedge Issues

By Da King Published: October 13, 2011

After nearly three years of Obama's policies, we know this much - Obama's policies aren't working. Unemployment is still over 9%, despite trillions spent on stimulus measures and three years of deficits in excess of a trillion dollars.

The President has run up $4.2 trillion in debt during his short tenure in office. He has run up about $110 billion in new debt each month he's been in office. That is a staggering amount.

Greedy Capitalists ?

By Da King Published: October 9, 2011

The tiny Occupy Wall Street protests look to consist of mostly young people. The young tend to be idealistic, which is a good thing. As Winston Churchill once said, “If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart. If you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.” That's what I'm observing at Occupy Wall Street. I see hearts aplenty, but brains...not so much. Yesterday, I watched Reason TV interviewing some of the OWS protesters. One protestor, in true socialist fashion, said the federal government should take over the banks to show those greedy banksters a thing or two. Then the Reason TV interviewer asked the protestor if he'd still want the government to run the banks if the Republicans were in power. The protestor shook his head and said, "oh, no. That would be very bad". Like I said, brains...not so much.

The concerns of the OWSers are nothing new. In fact, they are very old. A friend e-mailed me the following thirty year old video of liberal Phil Donahue interviewing free market economist Milton Friedman. You will find the subject matter very familiar:

The GOP ? What's That ?

By Da King Published: October 8, 2011

A 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll discovered that most people don't know what the Republican party acronym 'GOP' stands for. I wasn't too surprised by that. It's not that important. For the record, 'GOP' stands for 'Greed Over People' (source: MSNBC).

A new poll is much more disturbing. Pew Research found that most Americans aren't paying attention to their own government. We The People don't even seem to know who's running for President in 2012:

Killing Awlaki

By Da King Published: October 1, 2011

When I heard we killed the terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki with a Predator drone strike in Yemen, my first reaction was "good, we got another one !" When it comes to killing al Qaedans, I'm on-board with the idea, mainly because al Qaedans are on-board with the jihadist idea of killing us. If it's going to be us or them, I want it to be them. Putting them on the 72 Virgin Express is fine by me. Better that than the Capitol Bldg. blowing up.

But this is 2011, and even killing a terrorist bent on killing Americans is not without controversy. Here's Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX):
