UGA, COAL AND REASONABLE VOICES

UGA, COAL AND REASONABLE VOICES

Jul 14, 2014

I’m an “all in” kind of energy person. I think we should use wind, solar, bio-fuels and any other “renewables,” out there. Heck, if wood chips would fire our economy, I’m in. I like nuclear, the ultimate renewable. We need to pressure the powers that be to allow the reuse of the [...]

MIDDLE CLASS FOLLIES

MIDDLE CLASS FOLLIES

May 22, 2014

The New York Times and others have reported the middle class in America isn’t what it used to be.  My radio partner, Tim Bryant, hates that term, “middle class” but whether your call it middle income or middle class, regular folks are getting squeezed.
A number of years ago, Canada saw some difficult economic times coming [...]

Obama pivots back to jobs—again

Jul 27, 2013

In yet another jobs speech this week, President Obama declared victory, claiming that his tax-and-spend policies have “cleared away the rubble” of the recession. He promised the beginning of a “new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth.” Ignoring the sluggish economy, he claimed “we fought our way back.” Millions of unemployed and under-employed Americans would likely disagree.
 
Though [...]

Liberal policies turn Motown into Notown

Jul 26, 2013

It was a nice summer day. Kids were enjoying their summer break, diving for murder weapons in the Detroit River, when news of the city filing for bankruptcy broke. “I am shocked” —- said no one. Even Motown’s Stevie Wonder saw it coming.
As we do an autopsy on Detroit, once the symbol of American industrial [...]

Ron Hart: Economic stagnation through regulation and litigation

Jun 21, 2013

Dollar stores have done more to keep down what we pay for basic goods and helped more struggling families than any government action ever has. For that, and because they are based in the South, Obama’s O-bots in the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) are going after them.
Stores like Wal-Mart and Dollar General often operate [...]

An Immigrant’s view of the economy and our history: Niall Ferguson

Jun 20, 2013

I had the opportunity to talk to Niall Ferguson the other day.  He’s a Brit who has come to America to talk about Economic history.  He’s a Harvard professor that tells the truth and our history and our economy and there is standing room only to get into his classes.  We’ve talked so much about [...]

Student Loan Follies

Jun 18, 2013

There are a lot of “follies” going on in government right now.  Maybe I’ve been beat up fighting these waste issues, I’ve lost my sense of humor on the issue.
I got an email from Move On Civic Action yesterday.  Actually, a friend forwarded it to me with the note, “I can’t do this, but maybe [...]

Debbie Dooley: Show me the Money

Jun 18, 2013

That’s what I say to those who claim the Plant Vogtle construction projects in Augusta, Georgia will result in lower-cost electricity for Georgia ratepayers over the next few decades.  Let me be clear that I support all forms of energy production for our future – from nuclear, coal, natural gas, biomass, solar and wind.
Unfortunately, they [...]

Ryan and Graves: House should pass appropriations bills

Jun 17, 2013

In The Hill today:
This month, the House is writing appropriations bills for fiscal 2014. And it’s a crucial step. The budget resolution House Republicans passed in March outlined our vision for the country; it enunciated our principles. But these appropriations bills will put our principles into action. If we pass them, we’ll cut spending the [...]

Randy Evans: Employers should be concerned with DOL’s proposed rules

Jun 17, 2013

As the investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s illegal targeting of conservative groups continues to expand, questions are starting to emerge regarding whether such targeting is limited to the IRS. Of course, the full story regarding the IRS is far from being told, with key people asserting the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and others [...]

GM Bailout to cost taxpayers $10B

Jun 17, 2013

For those of you aren’t familiar, in 2011 the Treasury sold its remaining shares of Chrysler to Fiat – at a loss of $1.34 billion.  However, they claimed the sale was “further evidence of the success of the Administration’s actions to assist the US auto industry.”  I’m not sure about you, but I’m willing to [...]

A Dangerous Game: Obama, Taxes and You

Jun 17, 2013

Let’s play a game – which really is not a game at all since you and I have no chance of winning. Below are some of the taxes that will be imposed as part of the implementation of Obamacare. Your part in this “game” is to see how many either directly or indirectly impact you [...]

Tom Price introduces patient centered health care

Jun 17, 2013

There have been more that 30 alternatives to Obamacare since the passage of the so-called “Affordable” Heathcare Act was passed.  There were many alternatives presented during the debate.  The then Democrat controlled House and Senate didn’t want debate, and they still don’t. Congressman Price has always led the pack on this.
From Congressman Price’s office:
Congressman Tom [...]

Ron Hart: Ireland a canary in coal mine of entrepreneurism

Jun 17, 2013

During a trip to Ireland, one thing stood out to me, which explains most of Europe’s high unemployment and slow economic growth: a lack of entrepreneurial spirit. It has led to economic malaise, and it has spread to the United States.
Our bus driver in Ireland was an affable, 50-ish gentleman. He had worked union jobs [...]
