Our Founders Were Not Racisits

Today, in 1783, Washington gave his farewell address to his officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York City. The tavern was owned by Samuel Fraunces, a free black from Dominica. He would later accept Washington’s invitation to be Chief Steward at the President’s residence.

Yes, Virginia, The Stimulus Is Creating Jobs - In China

Is the Stimulus Money Creating Jobs?

Dr. Merrill Matthews of the Institute for Policy Innovation says yes, but for most Americans it’s a long commute.

One goal of President Obama’s stimulus bill was to create environmentally friendly “green jobs.”

And it’s done just that. The Washington Times reports that 11 U.S. wind farms have bought nearly 1,000 electricity-producing wind turbines, creating about 4,500 jobs, uh, oversees.

See, nearly 700 of those turbines were bought from China.

Now a new American-Chinese joint venture just announced it plans to buy nearly 250 Chinese-made turbines. That venture wants 30 percent of its $1.5 billion in funding from the stimulus money.

So if you’ve been looking for work for a while, you need to know that taxpayer-financed stimulus money is creating jobs.

And you might even be able to get one of them. Just make sure you like Chinese food.

A Simple Fix For America's Economic Woes

The morons in Washington are talking about a second stimulus package. Here's my idea:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the American work force. Pay them $1
million (federal tax free) severance each for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing and Bank Lending Crisis fixed.

4) They CAN'T draw Social Security - Entitlement Shortfall Fixed (for a while)

Run some calculations on how much state and local tax revenue would be generated by this idea.

If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their
back taxes...

While you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security
after the 2010 mid-term elections.

If you can show me why this would not be a better plan than the mess they already have made with our national finances, please tell me.

A Proper Defense Of Capitalism Not Only Requires, But Is, A Defense Of The Free Mind

Free Minds And Free Markets - By Peter Schwartz

"A free mind and a free market are corollaries," Ayn Rand writes. What is the full meaning of a free mind? Why does force negate a conceptual consciousness? And what is the resulting connection between the value of reason and the value of capitalism?

This lecture presents the underpinnings of individual freedom—in theory and in practice. It examines the origins of the concept "force" and shows how the concept is applicable only to volitional beings. It shows why political freedom is necessary, and possible, only because man has free will. Relating these points to such developments as evolutionary psychology and behavioral economics, Mr. Schwartz further explains how our culture's view of man as a deterministic entity leads inexorably to demands for more government controls and regulations.
