We Have a Spending Problem, Not a Taxing Problem

We Have a Spending Problem, Not a Taxing Problem

If Obama had been right about his spending and money-printing scheme to save the economy, revenues would have already recovered. He also would not be proposing a budget that will add about $1 trillion to the debt every year, rising to over $24 trillion by 2021, and saying now that we need to raise taxes. That’s Obama’s tax and spend irony, and it should not be lost on the American people as we head towards 2012.

As Tea Party Celebrates America, Left Shows Its Disrespect

As Tea Party Celebrates America, Left Shows Its Disrespect

As patriotic Americans with the Tea Party movement, 912-ers and other patriots came out this weekend celebrating our unique heritage of freedom and protesting the socialization of our bloated big government, Leftists and other America-loathers were out showing how much they hate all that makes America great. In these videos, you will see Leftists talk about how they wipe dirty body parts with the American flag. You will see liberals carrying on like spoiled children during the Star Spangled Banner, booing and otherwise being brats. You will hear Leftists screaming profanity at a teen age Tea Party patriot. In other words, you will see the face of the American Left with the mask off.

As we begin this Holy Week there is no other issue, no other thought more demanding of our attention than that of the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. On these facts—and most especially the resurrection—rest the whole Christian faith, mission, and message. I pray you take time to stop and reflect throughout this week—be reminded of your first love and his kingdom, which you are to seek first as you press into this world bearing witness to the glorious power of the resurrection!

Uncle Sam Plays You Pay

Uncle Sam Plays You Pay

Now the battle looms to raise the debt limit. This is an inside-the-belt-way shell game wherein the parties of power each beat their chests and growl at each other about who is the most responsible before they both vote to increase the limit on their collective credit card.

New large project refund program or is it the Governor’s slush fund?

New large project refund program or is it the Governor's slush fund?

During the last session legislators changed the state’s large project refund. Taking effect in 2013, the new refund program is to be less expensive and discretionary. Unlike the current program, projects won’t automatically qualify for refunds simply by meeting certain spending requirements. Instead, a panel will decide who gets the refund. Opponents call the change the Governor’s slush fund. Are they right?

Understanding Your IRS Form 1040

Do you bother to look at your taxes after filing them? Yes, you pay someone to fill out your tax return, but when it is done, do you ask what to change in the future to keep more of your earnings and forfeit less to Uncle Sam? Many people believe a dollar saved on their taxes is not worth the same as a dollar of their salary or a dollar of gain in the stock market. They are correct.
