“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Stimulating the Dead: Your Tax Dollars at Work

Stimulating the Dead: Your Tax Dollars at Work

I realize the liberals in our federal government had a lot of faith that the porkulus bill last year would stimulate the economy, but could it stimulate the dead? According to a new report, the Social Security Administration sent about 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each to dead and incarcerated people. The American people are entitled to better government than this.

Tea Parties in Orlando Florida and Raleigh North Carolina Today

There were at least a couple of Tea Parties today, in protest of the irresponsibility and “crappy representation” coming out of Washington D.C. these days. As I mentioned earlier, there was a big one in Orlando, Florida today.  You can find pics at Newsbusters and Pious Agnostic;  the latter has quite a gallery. There was […]

Magic Trick: Making 9,000 Chunks of Pork Disappear

In the past, President Barack Obama has joined the chorus against earmarks, pork, and wasteful government mis-spending of the taxpayers money of all stripes. So what gives, with the pork-ridden “stimulus” aka  porkulus package he signed? After all, he said in his address before Congress: “I’m proud that we passed a recovery plan free of […]

Notable Quotes, Feb. 13, 2009

“No, I don’t think anyone will have the chance to [read the entire bill],” -  Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) (Source: CNS News) “It’s over for Arlen.

Senator Coburn Points to the Pork

A number of socialist readers have questioned material posted at Dakota Voice over the past few days which calls out the “porkulus” stimulus bill for what it is: a huge bloated porker. They have asked, “Where’s the pork?” like that old lady in the 1980s Wendy’s commercial who was perpetually in search of the beef. […]

OBAMA REVEALED – ‘Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain’

Barack Obama promised during his campaign to “clean up both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue” with “the most sweeping ethics reform in history.” Shades of Bill Clinton’s promise of “the most ethical administration in history.” Well, from the early evidence, we’re in for the same cynical, sordid and utterly deceitful results we got from the previous […]

Arlen Specter Sells Out…Again

No, this isn’t Senator Arlen Specter, but rather James Bond’s arch enemy Blofeld.  But if this bloated pork-ridden, mind-boggling chunk of debt known as the “stimulus” bill is bad for America and freedom (and I believe it is), then perhaps Specter and SPECTRE have something in common. Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham took Senator […]

Dems Throwing More Fuel on Republican Fire

After the thrashing Republicans have received lately for their lack of leadership and for offering a RINO for the presidential nominee, it’s heart-warming to see some fire coming back into the GOP. Not content to consolidate their gains and move on, Democrats and their standard-bearer President Barack Obama have taken to attacking Rush Limbaugh, a […]
