The New Republican Mantra: 'Reducing Revenue Doesn't Reduce Revenue!'

the federal budget is not affected by the bush tax cuts...
While the sun sets on the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich at the end of this year, Sen. Tom Coburn and other Republicans have been making some rather creative assertions regarding this issue in an attempt to forestall the demise of the tax cuts. [ 1, 2, 3 ]

Despite incontrovertible evidence that the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich have had a detrimental effect on the federal budget, Republicans pay no heed to the facts, because...

The GOP answers to a higher authority! [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 ]

(If %40 of the national debt was incurred between 2001 and 2008, and more than half of that was Bush's Tax Cuts for the Rich, and the vast majority of Bush's Tax Cuts for the Rich went to billionaires, then that means about one fifth of the national debt was borrowed from our children and grandchildren to give to billionaires, right?)

There Are Two Theories To Reasoning With the Tea Party. Neither One Works.


While I am glad to hear that the NAACP has adopted a resolution condemning the racist elements of the Tea Party...

I do support the Tea Party's freedom of speech...

And despite some of the negative statement made by the Tea Party...

I guess that a certain degree of negativity is always displayed by the opposing party.

The main thrust of the Tea Party's message isn't about racism...

The Tea Party is about respect...

And pressing issues...

And genuine concerns...

Oh, and socialism and taxes...

But mostly taxes.

I Am Actually Rather Fond of Giant Atomic Insects...

Much is being made of House Majority Leader John Boehner's recent statements [ 2, 3 ] regarding Wall Street reform.

But what is not being acknowledged is Rep. Boehner's intimate knowledge of this situation...

The GOP knows what to do to save the day!
