How does Treasury (and Congress, the President, et al) decide who gets bailout money and who doesn’t? It’s a remarkably complex process, and you’ll see. South Park explains in this short clip:

A relatively new kids book is available from the authors of “Why Mommy is a Democrat” and “Why Daddy is a Democrat.” If you’re looking for a book for your children that will help nurture them toward a life of dependency, debt, mandatory volunteerism, sacrificing freedom in the name of junk science and abortion as […]

There’s are major problems in North Dakota — severe flooding, people chased from their homes, evacuations, cold, wind and a dike that may not be able to hold back all the water. Sound familiar? But where’s the president? Where’s Geraldo? Where’s the finger-pointing? Where’s FEMA handing out gift cards? Where’s that guy looting beer? What’s […]

The Washington Post published the following chart made by the Congressional Budget Office, which concluded that the U.S. will have to borrow nearly $9.3 trillion over the next decade to keep up with Hope-Mania: The White House agreed with most the CBO’s analysis as far as the raw numbers go, but they suggested just a […]

Given the ever-increasing Congress and White House-induced need for American taxpayers to “escape” these days, this is just plain cruel: Obama told the audience gathered at the White House — and across the Web — that one of the most popular questions was whether legalization of [marijuana] would help pull the country out of the […]

In a story entitled “White House To Announce Tax Gap Task Force,” we find this gem: “Over the next several months, the President will propose a series of legislative and enforcement measures to reduce such US tax evasion and avoidance,” Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner told the House Ways and Means Committee… I think he’s serious […]

Much of the press is enamored with one response Obama gave at last night’s scripted press conference to a reporter’s question about why he didn’t come out negatively immediately after finding out about the AIG bonuses. The reporter asked why it took Obama two days to react, and Obama’s icy stare was followed by the […]

Will TOTUS get jealous over this one? Or have we witnessed a flat-out prompter coup? At last night’s press, Barack Obama scrapped his usual teleprompter for what appears to be a 52-inch television swiped from a 1988 man-cave that was placed at the back of the room. For now we can refer to the new […]
