An amazing editorial was published the New York Times yesterday. Not just because Warren Buffett lays waste to nearly every single “taxation kills investment” argument…but because he has lost his patience with those who don’t understand history. To start… While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Republicans, tea party, The Donald

I still think it’s a stunt, but Trump is making moves towards running a real campaign.

Incredibly eerie in retrospect. Here’s what Gifford said on March 25, 2010… “…for example, we’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list, but the thing is that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district, and when people do that, they’ve gotta realize there are consequences to that […]

Tea Partiers…What About The Wars?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Constitution, Military, Money, tea party, War

Bush have tried to reconcile their efforts to rein in federal power with their support for a large military and an interventionist foreign policy. But both times, the latter has […]
