Wayne Root: Washington Times OpEd — Bin Laden dead, Uncle Sam slow

Like the rest of America, I cheered at the news of the killing of Osama bin Laden. I was thrilled. It made my night. And the next day, too. One of the great vile, evil villains of modern history had been eliminated. If you weren’t celebrating, there is a chip missing from your DNA.… Read more ...

FRAUD: WHY THE TAX CUT BILL IS JUST AN EXC– USE TO SPEND ANOTHER TRILLION DOLLARS!

PROOF THAT OUR POLITICAL LEADERS HAVEN’T LEARNED A THING.

Didn’t we just have a historic Tea Party election? Wasn’t the message STOP THE SPENDING, PAY OFF THE DEBT, and STOP THE INSANITY? The message was loud and clear, yet the first major bill after the election adds about one trillion more in debt as we face economic Armageddon — a rapidly approaching debt crisis (that will make Greece look like child’s play), 20% real unemployment, and eventually hyper-inflation that could turn America into Zimbabwe.… Read more ...
