AMERICAN BUREAUCRACY IS YOUR BIGGEST HOUSEHOLD EXPENSE Average U.S. Household Spends More on Federal Regulations Than for Health Care, Food or Transportation That's not a late-breaking April Fool's story. It's true. The Bureau of Compliance *** up a quarter of everything you make: Crews estimates the annual cost of compliance with the record number of new federal rules and regulations issued under President Obama at $1.863 trillion. That works out to a $14,974 "hidden tax" every year for the average U.S. household. That's 23 percent of the $65,596 annual average household income in America. Good thing this is a republic of limited government, or who knows what that 23 per cent would be climbing to. |The Road We're Kicking the Can Down, by Mark Steyn Steyn on America, April 30, 2014
political inbreeding and why libs/dems don't get the news, no really read this paragraph...(Washington) that Post reporter Sari Horwitz, who covers the Justice Department, is married to William B. Schultz, who is Kathleen Sebelius’ top lawyer at the Department of Health and Human Services. Ben Sherwood, the president of ABC News, is brother to Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, “a top national security adviser to President Obama.” Another Obama national security aide, Ben Rhodes, is brother to David Rhodes, president of CBS News. One of CNN’s top D.C. hacks is married to Tom Nides, whose upward career trajectory has taken him from the office of Democratic congressional powerbroker Tony Coelho to, where else, Fannie Mae, Credit Suisse, and Morgan Stanley, as well as a two-year stint as an undersecretary of state for Hillary Clinton. Whose daughter is on contract with NBC. White House spokesman Jay Carney, who worked for many years at Time magazine, is married to Claire Shipman, a correspondent for ABC New ...
Mark Steyn writes on NRO: ‘I’m also issuing a new goal for America,” declared President Obama at his State of the Union on Tuesday. We’ll come to the particular “goal” he “issued” momentarily, but before we do, consider that formulation: Did you know the president of the United States is now in the…
Paula Priesse February 2nd – You’re an administration that had a tax cheat for Treasury Secretary. Your healthcare law that will cost families at least 20K/year is laughingly called the “AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.” What do you do for an encore? You nominate a Defense Secretary who on Al Jazeera agreed that America is “the world’s bully.” As a recipient of two purple hearts, Chuck Hagel deserves our thanks. But Hagel is anti-Israel, is strongly supported by America’s adversaries and admitted Thursday “there are a lot of things I don’t know about” the Defense Department. In other words, the perfect O nominee! Hagel’s Senate performance was so bad, columnist Mark Steyn wrote he acted like “an over-sedated Elmer Fudd.” Good thing wisdom & competency are never required to serve on O’s Cabinet. So odds are this pro-Iranian stumblebum will get a “thumbs up” by our good ole’ boys Senate. In related news, President Obama saw his shadow this morning. Unfortunately this means four more ...
He appeared in New Jersey wearing a bomber jacket rather than a suit to demonstrate that when the going gets tough, the tough get out a monogrammed Air Force One bomber jacket." Mark Steyn commenting on President Obama's response to Tropical Storm Sandy.
Even if Obama thought first — or even only — about reelection, how could he have chosen to lie the way he did about Libya? Mark Steyn writes: The State Department has now conceded that there was no movie protest at all. and that it was, in fact, one of the most sophisticated military attacks ever launched at a diplomatic facilityBoth these very obvious points were surely known to Washington by 6 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday September 12, by which time the surviving consulate staff had been evacuated to Tripoli. Yet Ambassador Rice, President Obama, et al., were still blaming the video days later. Obama and Secretary Clinton always refer to Ambassador Stevens as “Chris” — Chris this, Chris that — as if he were a treasured friend or intimate. Yet they and the sad hollow men around them dishonor their “friend” in death. Quite aside from the wrongness of lying, generally and specifically, in this case, and quite aside from the motivation to lie — I'm going to presume, without more, it was campa ...

Incidentally, I was interested to learn from David Maraniss’s enlightening new biography that, during car-chooming sessions, young Barry insisted all the windows be rolled up so that no marijuana smoke would escape. If you can seriously envision President Obama opening a 21st-century Hoover Dam, you need to lower the windows on your Chevy Volt. Mark Steyn in his latest column.speaking of Barrack in his college days smoking marijuana and insisting all the windows stayed rolled up completely.
Mark Steyn sure has a way with words. Here is part of his reponse to those defending Obama's ignorant "you didn't build it statement- "If this is the best all the King's horses and all the King's men can do to put Humpty Dumpty's silver-tongued oratory together again, they might as well cut to the chase and argue that accurately quoting President Obama is racist. The obvious interpretation sticks because it fits with the reality of the last three-and-a-half years – that America's chief executive is a man entirely ignorant of business who presides over an administration profoundly hostile to it"
This interesting tidbit from Mark Steyn, filling in for Rush Limbaugh today... Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, and former Democrat Speaker of the House, says the demand for Mitt Romney's income tax records is a "distraction." Fancy that. It appears that Ms. Pelosi has never released hers either. And only 17 or the 535 House members have. (Who really cares about Romeny's income records other than Democrat politicians? We all know that Mitt Romney is wealthy, AND he didn't inherit it.) Romney has paid his taxes, unlike President Obama's choice for US Treasury Secretary, Timorthy Geithner, aka "Turbo Tax Timmy," who owed federal taxes when nominated for the job of being in charge of the IRS among others. Also as of January 26, 2012 – NewsInvestors.com reported that Obama's demand that rich Americans pay their fair share of taxes apparently does not apply to 36 of his aides. They owe $833,000 in back taxes. And that's acceptable?
“On assuming office, President Obama assured us, with a straight face, that his grossly irresponsible wastrel of a predecessor had taken the federal budget on an eight-year joyride. So the only way his sober, fiscally responsible successor could get things under control was to grab the throttle and crank it up . . . the Obama administration took the average Bush deficits for the years 2001-2008 and doubled it, all the way to 2020. ‘We’ve got a big hole that we’re digging ourselves out of,’ the president declared in 2011. Usually, when you’re in a hole, it’s a good idea to stop digging. But seemingly, to get out of the Bush hole, we needed to dig a hole twice as deep for one-and-a-half times as long.” – Mark Steyn, After America
Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee has been a huge success, save for a few churlish republicans pointing out how absurd it is for grown citizens to be fawning over a distant head of state who lives in a fabulous, glittering cocoon entirely disconnected from ordinary life. Which brings us to President Obama. But hey, unlike those inbred monarchies with their dukes and marquesses and whatnot, at least he gets out among the masses. Why, in a typical week, you’ll find him at a fundraiser at George Clooney’s home in Los Angeles with Barbra Streisand and Salma Hayek. These are people who are in touch with the needs of ordinary Americans because they have played ordinary Americans in several of their movies. — Mark Steyn
