Republicans have great ideas and proposals about healthcare if they would just have the guts to articulate them. — http://touch.humanevents.com/humanevents/#!/entry/ten-principles-of-a-marketoriented-health-care-system,52e76c0e025312186cc33858

The extent to which the President has or does not have the authority to implement his executive action is a point of confusion for most people. That is what makes it a powerful political move. Those who hate it can’t fight it without hesitation. They are never sure enough about they know. Pure political posturing! — http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2014/01/28/video-is-obama-giving-up-on-democrats-2014-chances-n1785660?utm_source=thdailypm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl_pm

The market freak out shows how fragile and artificial these gains have been. The panic only takes place when the “drugs” are withdrawn. The money is a drug and we don’t look forward to withdrawal. — http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/01/28/global-markets-are-freaking-out-heres-what-the-fed-should-say/

The true story of income inequality is between Washington DC and the rest of us. —http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2014/01/28/real-income-inequality-a-look-at-the-income-gap-between-washing-and-the-american-people-n1785923?utm_source=thdailypm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl_pm

Love causes income inequality!! Interesting perspective and true to some extent. — http://www.aei-ideas.org/2014/01/does-the-end-of-cinderella-marriages-explain-the-rise-in-income-inequality/#mbl

This story is both funny and frustrating. It is just so hard to be a small business. Government has literally hundreds of different people who find a way to make your life difficult. —http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/29/small-businesses-dont-add-jobs-because-government-makes-doing-so-stupid/

Black America is not totally behind this President. Many are very critical. —http://www.nationalcenter.org/P21PR-SOTU_012814.html

I find the Farm Bill to be a gross example of political cronyism.

In negotiating a new farm bill, the House and Senate have decided the best approach to work out their differences is by selecting the worst options from each of their bills and add them together into one terrible bill. — http://thefederalist.com/2014/01/29/the-farm-bill-fiasco/?utm_source=The+Federalist+List&utm_campaign=42c30b5cd9-RSS_DAILY_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_cfcb868ceb-42c30b5cd9-50692153

Logrolling – a political tactic to roll right over your political opponent or to coerce someone to do something they would not otherwise do. — http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/29/mitch-mcconnell-the-farm-bill-and-the-power-of-logrolling/

The President has taken unilateral action. If he can, he will! The question is should he have? What is the true impact, not just the effect on specific federal contractors?

If one branch of government acts outside the constitution can another element stop them? If so, how? — http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/28/mark-levin-explodes-with-fury-over-impotent-gop-establishment-suggests-a-way-for-u-s-house-to-get-back-in-the-game/

This is fantastic article on the conservative perspective on helping the needy in our society. Must Read!! The second is a video of Arthur Brooks that relates to this as well. Great concept in how we think about our place in the world

“Minimum-wage laws always decrease employment opportunities and always interfere with free choice and the freedom of contract. They are supported by politicians seeking votes and by labor unions anxious to cripple nonunion competitors. They are also inherently discriminatory since they hurt only workers on the lowest rung of the employment ladder.” — http://www.independent.org/newsroom/article.asp?id=4751

Matt Drudge tweets “Have an exit palm!” – what did he mean? A billion people every day visit his website! — http://joeforamerica.com/2014/01/matt-drudge-issues-warning-exit-plan/


The War on Children – “Mother Teresa shared her burden for the unborn, where she humbly asked American women to give “until it hurts” of her “plans,” “free time” or those “dreams,” as Obama put it. Mother Teresa described abortion as a war against children, saying if society accepts that a mother can kill her own child, the rest of society cannot be held to a higher standard. – She was right, but sadly, her words fell on deaf ears. During 2010, in New York City alone, enough abortions were performed to pack out the MetLife Stadium. If she were alive today, she would weep over the loss of 83,000 souls, but she would have to mourn from a distance. If Governor Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio are true to their words, she would have been held at the state line as one of those unwelcome pro-life “extremists.”— http://townhall.com/columnists/susanstamperbrown/2014/01/28/the-war-against-children-n1785426/page/full


Liberals have decided to confront their Obamacare problem by changing the subject.  The new subject they plan to focus on is income inequality — http://patriotupdate.com/articles/income-inequality-claims-wrong-headed-liberalism/#ig70AwAL3pC737Uq.99


Crony capitalist lobby government to create the conditions that make their own companies competitive. Lobbyists and CEOs will always have a free-market-sounding defense to make. Sometimes the defense will be legitimate. Frequently it will not. Libertarians need to probe those defenses, asking businessmen and their hired guns these tough questions. — http://reason.com/archives/2014/01/28/crony-capitalism-vs-market-mor/2


The Arizona State GOP has censured John McCain. McCain joins US Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) who has been censured by more than half a dozen county Republican parties in his home state. Graham has not yet be censured by the state party as a whole. — http://benswann.com/arizona-state-gop-censures-senator-mccain/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=nl

I love the way this guy talks about government. “The single biggest lie in politics is that Republicans are the party of the rich,” says Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).  “The dirty little secret is that the rich do just fine with Big Government.” — http://reason.com/reasontv/2014/01/28/sen-ted-cruz-the-obama-economic-agenda-h


“Congress is very fond of two things: throwing a bunch of stuff into one bill and rushing bills through while Americans are focused on other news. While people were talking about the State of the Union, they’ve done it again with the $1 trillion farm bill.” — http://blog.heritage.org/2014/01/30/farm-bill-what-congress-did-while-you-were-talking-about-the-state-of-the-union/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social


Margaret Thatchers famous words – “Mr. Speaker, all levels of income are better off than they were in 1979.  What the honorable member is saying, is that he would rather the poor were poorer, provided the rich were less rich… That is a liberal policy.  Yes, it came out.  He didn’t intend it to, but it did.” — http://heritageaction.com/2014/01/ronald-reagan-lady-margaret-thatcher-president-obama-income-inequality/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+heritageaction+%28Heritage+Action%3A+The+Forge%29

Ohio is such a powerfully important state that any board of election action is considered an act of voter suppression or lack of voter integrity — http://www.huffingtonpost.com/pg-sittenfeld/in-ohio-the-subtle-and-no_b_4682636.html

Employing libertarian methods of voluntary association, nonviolent activism, and social solidarity to back up hard bargaining, alt-labor hearkens back to an older strand of pre-New-Deal labor radicalism: a less legalistic, more anti-political, freer, and (therefore) more vigorous, less domesticated labor movement. — http://reason.com/archives/2014/01/28/free-market-labor-wins-wage-boost-victor
