QUOTES OF THE DAY:

 

"Try this thought experiment. Pretend you're a tyrant.  Among your many liberty-destroying objectives are extermination of blacks, Jews and Catholics.  Which would you prefer, a United States with political power centralized in Washington, powerful government agencies with detailed information on Americans and compliant states or power widely dispersed over 50 states, thousands of local jurisdictions and a limited federal government?"


                                                        -- Walter E. Williams,
(1936- ) Columnist, Professor of Economics at George Mason University

Exploding debt threatens America

Standard and Poor’s decision to downgrade its outlook for British sovereign debt from “stable” to “negative” should be a wake-up call for the US Congress and administration. Let us hope they wake up.  Under President Barack Obama’s budget plan, the federal debt is exploding. To be precise, it is rising – and will continue to rise – much faster than gross domestic product, a measure of America’s ability to service it. The federal debt was equivalent to 41 per cent of GDP at the end of 2008; the Congressional Budget Office projects it will increase to 82 per cent of GDP in 10 years. With no change in policy, it could hit 100 per cent of GDP in just another five years.

Tax Revenue Plunges as Obama Deficit Soars

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. housing bust and auto sector upheaval have left hundreds of thousands of workers looking for jobs in the same sectors, in the same places, and at the same time.  Some of these jobs won't come back even after the recession ends because Americans are unlikely to buy as many new homes or cars as they did at the peak of the easy-money days.

But, with few exceptions, that money has not reached states where the unemployment rate is highest.
