What are the top three worst development investments a county can make in a recession? Answer: Apartments, Apartments and Apartments. And why is that?

My Vote and Bob McDonnell Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together. Like Never!

Wow. They call this monstrosity of a tax increase – $6.1 billion – the “Transportation Bill”. But only 57% is supposed to go to transportation. And we all know how “secure” that spending will be. There is no lock box. So as Bob McDonnell sends email after email trying to convince people that bigger government […]

Senator Obenshain AGAINST Governor McDonnell’s Massive 16% Sales Tax Increase

As we have previously noted, Governor McDonnell has moved firmly into the RINO Camp proposing a 16% Sales Tax Increase for Virginia to pay for more roads. (What is it with these pretend Conservative politicians?)

Betrayed! Only 5 Republican Senators Voted ‘NO!’ to a Tax Increase –

We have been predicting for some time that House and Senate Republicans were going to cave in to higher taxes. Every one of these Republicans has said many, many times “you don’t raise taxes on anyone in a recession – period!” So Senate Republicans would have us believe that they were completely at the mercy […]

UKIP GAINS MOMENTUM in ROTHERHAM!

This new article by the Guardian has some nuggets for UKIP supporters like me: First, the BNP once drew 10%+ in an election and UKIP is certainly skeptical on immigration and non-racist like BNP: Nick Griffin’s party polled 10.4% of the Rotherham vote in the 2010 general election. Immigration is a big issue in the […]

Obama Joins Senate Dems In Threatening A Plunge Over The Fiscal Cliff Unless They Get Massive Tax Hikes

Last week, The Washington Post reported, “President Obama is prepared to veto legislation to block year-end tax hikes and spending cuts, collectively known as the ‘fiscal cliff,’ unless Republicans bow to his demand to raise tax rates for the wealthy, administration officials said. Freed from the political and economic constraints that have tied his hands in the past, […]

After inheriting a surplus of $1.5 Billion when he became Governor of Virginia and squandering that nest egg into a $4.5 Billion Dollar Shortfall, Tim Kaine has proved that Tim Kaine-sian economics simply do not work.

Will the Obamacare Mandate Cause More Home Foreclosures?

It might not seem probable that Obamacare could cause more foreclosures, particularly among the middle class, but these are not normal times. When the Progressives decided to force an unwanted bill and unaffordable entitlements down America’s collective throats, they had a particularly copious amount of disdain for anyone who declined to purchase Health Insurance because […]

Mental Recession has a great piece on some shocking Union behavior that I found very interesting: The Albany Times Union has broken a story involving correction officers in Rensselaer county trying to unseat the incumbent Republican sheriff, Jack Mahar, through unsavory means.  The crux of the story involves getting inmates to register or change their […]
