Audit Turns Up Waste in Green Projects: The Washington Post reported today that an audit turned up waste in several Green Projects that are run by the Energy Department. While this is unsurprising, this is the same agency that is being tasked with determining where billions of dollars of the Stimulus Bill are going to be spent. Even more troubling is that the initiatives that are being determined as wasteful are the exact types of projects that the funding from the stimulus bill are dedicated towards.
Big Business and the Democratic Party: Ever since FDR was elected president in 1932, the Republican Party had been vilified by liberals and the news media as the party of large corporations and the defender of greedy capitalists.

In the last decade, large corporations in many industries have contributed far more money to the Democratic Party and democratic candidates than to Republicans.
ObamaCare Preys on the Young, Flouts the Constitution: Ask the Obama administration why it is pushing legislation to conscript the young, and it will likely deny doing any such thing. But how else to describe individual mandates, the latest twist in the White House's nationalized health care scheme?

Senate Votes to Keep Spending Millions on Stimulus Signs: Ever since the "American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009" kicked in, it was obvious that a major part of the stimulus would be paying people to design, manufacture and put up signs alerting taxpayers where their "stimulus" money was going. You'd have to spend a fortune on an investigation to find a better example of a self-perpetuating sinkhole -- and then spend even more money on signs announcing the findings of your investigation -- to top this.
