Americans Had to Work from January 1 to August 12 This Year Just to Cover Cost of Government
08-13-2009  •  CNS 
Americans had to work from January 1 until August 12 this year just to cover the cost of government. That is 26 days more than they had to work last year to cover the cost of government. “Cost of Government Day” this year fell on Wednesday, August 12, according to Americans for Tax Reform, the conservative group that calculates when the day occurs. Cost of Government Day is the day in the year when the American people have earned enough income to pay the total cost of the spending and regulatory burden imposed by government at the federal, state, and local level.   Read Full Story

The Free Market as Regulator - by US Rep. Ron Paul
Powell Gammill
   What we need to realize is that there WAS a regulatory structure in place that was attempting to stop bad management, including overpaying executives.  That regulatory structure is the free market, and when poor management brought these companies to the point of bankruptcy, Congress circumvented the wisdom of the free market, and inserted its own judgment at our expense.  And now because of that intervention, we will burdened with massive new regulations.  We can be certain this effort will fail.

Robert Novak Dead; Charles Goyette Tribute
08-18-2009  •  Charles Goyette blog 
On September 11, 2003, I was introduced to Robert Novak at a Goldwater Institute luncheon.
I had been discussing Novak's Valerie Plame column in which he had described her as a "CIA operative," on The Charles Goyette Show since its first appearance in July. I felt that the implications of Novak's column were serious - that it had the fingerprints of the Bush administration attempting to discredit Joe Wilson, a critic of the Iraq war - and that it was not getting the kind of media attention it deserved -- not unlike the Downing Street memos.

How the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spends money meant for jail improvements could become a matter for state auditors. The sheriff's office spent hundreds of thousands of those dollars on parties and fine hotel accommodations during out-of-state travel, according to a newspaper investigation. The state collects and distributes millions of dollars every year from court fees so the 15 county sheriffs can improve their jails.County Manager David Smith said officials are concerned that sheriff's officials are not following proper procurement rules and other business practices.

A Non-State Gun at Obama Event - by Butler Shaffer
08-18-2009  •  Lew Rockwell 
Those who are getting their diapers in a knot over the appearance of a man with an assault rifle at an Obama event need a little perspective. They might recall when a contingent of Black Panthers walked into the California State Legislative chambers with rifles and shotguns " while the legislature was in session " to make a political statement. No shots were fired; no one was injured; but the incident was intended to remind government officials of the purpose of the Second Amendment. Ordinary people " not the state’s police and military " are to have the ultimate power in a free society.

National Post editorial board: Canadian health care is no model
08-18-2009  •  National Post 
The last two presidents of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) have both been staunch advocates of increased private care. The incoming president, Anne Doig of Saskatoon, who will be installed this week, says our health-care system is "imploding." While not as committed to private options as her predecessors, Dr. Doig acknowledges our current universal public system is "unsustainable." She also argues we should not fear private options, but rather should implement whatever models from around the world -- be they public or private -- that produce the best results for patients. On the other hand, the physician who will replace Dr. Doig next summer, Ottawa's Dr. Jeff Turnbull, promises to be a passionate defender of the government health monopoly during his one-year term. Overall, then, three of the four most-recent CMA presidents and presidents-elect have argued to varying degrees that private options for patients are inevitable; just one believes our curren  Read Full Story

Krugman on Bad Actors
08-18-2009  •  Mises Institute 
In a recent New York Times column, Paul Krugman lamented our society's lavish rewards for bad actors. No, he wasn't criticizing the original cast of Star Trek. Rather, Krugman was bemoaning the hefty earnings that accrue to financial executives. Unfortunately, Krugman's critique is riddled with irrelevant paper citations and internal contradictions. The shocking abuses in today's financial markets would end immediately, if only the government would get out of the sector entirely. Has Krugman Been Paying Attention? Krugman conveniently ignores the role played by the Federal Reserve and the federal government in these shenanigans. Whether or not he endorsed the idea, Krugman was certainly aware that the Fed could engineer a housing bubble; is he now claiming that the Fed had nothing to do with it? And yes, it is outrageous that reckless Wall Street firms have gotten hundreds of billions (and possibly trillions, if there are defaults on the loans guaranteed by the  Read Full Story

Obama Joker artist unmasked: A fellow Chicagoan

When cryptic posters portraying President Obama as the Joker from "Batman" began popping up around Los Angeles and other cities, the question many asked was, Who is behind the image?

Was it an ultra-conservative grassroots group or a disgruntled street artist going against the grain?

Nope, it turns out, just a 20-year-old college student from Chicago.

Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the picture of Obama with the recognizable clown makeup using Adobe's Photoshop software.

Unemployment Spike Compounds Foreclosure Crisis News Link  •  Economy - Economics USA
Unemployment Spike Compounds Foreclosure Crisis
08-18-2009  •  Washington Post 
The country's growing unemployment is overtaking subprime mortgages as the main driver of foreclosures, according to bankers and economists, threatening to send even higher the number of borrowers who will lose their homes and making the foreclosure crisis far more complicated to unwind. Economists estimate that 1.8 million borrowers will lose their homes this year, up from 1.4 million last year, according to Moody's Economy.com. And the government, which has already committed billions of dollars to foreclosure-prevention efforts, has found it far more difficult to help people who have lost their paychecks than those whose mortgage payments became unaffordable because of an interest-rate increase. "It's a much harder nut to crack, unemployment," said Mark A. Calabria, director of financial regulation studies at the Cato Institute. "It's much easier to bash lenders than to create jobs."  Read Full Story

ObamaCare is Dead -- RINOcare is the Real Danger; SSI President Larry Hunter Headlines Bus Tour to C
08-18-2009  •  PR Web 
Today, the Social Security Institute (SSI) joined with Patients First to carry an urgent message to three critical states: ObamaCare as originally conceived is dead, and the real danger now is RINOcare ObamaCare Lite, which the Administration is trying to smuggle into law disguised as a "bipartisan compromise." The purpose of the tour is to convince critical Republican Senators in these states that the time has come to abandon unrealistic and potentially dangerous efforts to negotiate a bipartisan compromise. Instead, the Congress should put consideration of major healthcare reform on hold for at least a year until the economy improves and the supercharged political environment settles down. The only bipartisan agreement Senators should be seeking at this time is to abide by the 60-Vote rule for health reform the Senate TWICE voted (by unanimous consent and 79 yeas respectively) earlier this year to apply to the healthcare debate.  Read Full Story

About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday - the latest incident in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president.

Gun-rights advocates say they're exercising their constitutional right to bear arms and protest, while those who argue for more gun control say it could be a disaster waiting to happen.
