The View Before The Fall

The View Before The Fall

As he surveyed the crowd beneath and the Sun abreast, he smiled in the satisfaction of knowing to which she referred. He was, in his mind, now and always, cold and detached. Hadn't this always been his hallmark? Wasn't this the capacity in himself that he truly valued? If his beloved could not appreciate his strengths, could not accept the benefits to the family that they had provided, then what else could he do. He smiled as he acknowledged how little he felt.

Its The Economy Stupid

Its The Economy Stupid

It is precisely those times when the economy is roaring that the U.S. government should seek to cut back on spending. Heavy deficit spending, followed by a sensible and steady increase in the prime interest rate, is the best prescription for getting out of a recession. The continued comparison of household finances to that of the government's is both flawed and dangerous, and has led to the precipitous lack of spending in infrastructure projects, from roads and bridges to education, that is the real threat to the U.S. economy.

Returning Fire; Responding To The Wall Street Journal

This disaster will see its conclusion, not because of the capabilities of industry, but because of the power, will, and intellect of a nation pulling together. The harness of that power is something we citizens like to call the government. That government’s leader, elected (whether Ms. Rabinowitz likes it or not) with a mandate by the people of the United States, is President Obama.

Government Of The People

Government Of The People

The Constitution is not broken, and has not been ignored or trampled. The document that our Founders used as a tool to establish our nation is a rugged thing of beauty that has grown better over time.
