NetRight Daily: Don't Buy Cars from Government Motors 

Say No to Government Motors and Obamacars: I won't buy a socialist car, which means I won't be buying a GM or Chrysler car for as long as the U.S. government owns huge blocks of the companies.

 

Krugman's Folly: Ironically, the current financial crisis was in large part precipitated through monetary expansion by the Fed in the first place. At the very least, it led to asset inflation in the housing market. This expansion was accommodated by easy money and loose credit policies. Through generally lower than inflation interest rates money flowed into the financial system on a gargantuan scale. In short, the spigots were on.

Support the Fed Transparency Bill: With a government that is completely unaccountable—responsible for more than $12.8 trillion of financial "rescues" in the past 22 months all on the taxpayers' tab—the need for a political party in Washington to find what, if anything, is left in the public treasury has never been more dire.

CHQ - Bill Buckley's Lessons for Conservatism 

What Can Bill Buckley Teach Us About the Future of Conservatism
Wall Street Journal - Though William F. Buckley Jr. died in 2008, his legacy and influence in the conservative movement can teach us much about how the movement can get through today's hard times. From remaining separated from the GOP to thinking for himself, Buckley's political strategies are just as effective today as they were for him.

PRIDE Month Begins, DNC Chairman Tim Kaine Celebrates the Contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Americans 

Washington, DC -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine today issued the followingstatementmarking June asPRIDE Month:

“Today, on behalf of Democrats across our nation, the Democratic National Committee pays recognition toPRIDE month – a time to join together in celebrating the contributions that lesbian, gay, bisexual,and transgender Americans and their families make to our society. We also take this time to reaffirm our commitment to beinga Party of inclusion and one that stands firm in promoting equality for every American.

 

“As Democrats and Americans, we believe weall are createdequal and we have fought against discrimination based on race, sex, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, and attempts to divide us instead of unite us.

 

“The cause of ending discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans has taken agiant leap forward. With a Democrat in the White House who is committed to equality and justice, we have reached significant milestones. The Obama Administration is the first to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in its first 100 days and it has partnered with the international community at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world.

 

“The Administration is concentrating on a number of measures to ensure equality for all—such as supporting civil unions, Federal rights for LGBT couples,stronger hate crimes laws, ridding our military of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ in a way that both ensures national security and strengthens our Armed forces, banning discrimination in the work place, fighting HIV/AIDS and ensuring adoption rights.

 

“We as a Party and as a people have come a long way, and we should be proud of what we have accomplished thus far in promoting equal rights for all Americans. But we still have much more to do. As we move ahead with a Democratic Congress and President committed to equality for all Americans, we look forward to a nation where discrimination of any kind isa thing of the past.”

Veteran Recalls Service Time; Widow Relays Late Husband's Sacrifice?

 

Malibu resident Marjorie Dukatz recalls her service with the Marines; Sharon Sawyer talks about her late husband's, Dick Sawyer, time flying a B-17 Flying Fortress during World War II. While any people may value Memorial Day primarily as the culmination of a three-day holiday, there are plenty of war veterans around to remind U.S. citizens of the true significance of the national holiday and what the sacrifice of their military colleagues means to America today. "Dick's plane was named 'Free Delivery' by its crew," Sawyer's wife, Sharon, said in an interview with The Malibu Times. "On his 27th combat mission on Dec. 31, 1944, he was shot down near Hamburg. After he parachuted out, he saw his plane crash into 8 houses." Read More >

NH GOP - NH EDITORIAL PAGES SLAM DEMOCRATS' "IRRESPONSIBLE" BUDGETS 

“Legislators — and Gov. John Lynch — are running away from reality. Lawmakers are heaping taxes on top of more taxes, while the governor is downshifting the cost of state government by denying cities and towns the aid they have historically received.”

 

-Foster’s Daily Democrat (5/31)

 

PORTSMOUTH HERALD: Tell State To Cut Spending

Editorial

May 31, 2009

 

  • The Democrats Have Proposed Budgets That “Greatly Increase[s] Taxes”: “The N.H. Senate Finance Committee has passed an $11.5 billion spending plan that would, if passed, nickel and dime us on small expenses, greatly increase taxes on our struggling businesses, and add the clatter of 13,000 slot machines to help pay for our profligate spending. And it will do this without addressing any of the long-term budget busters waiting to blow up on us in the future when we no longer have $500 million in stimulus money or $100 million from an unused medical malpractice fund.

 

  • The Democrats Have Refused To Focus On Cutting Spending: The one thing we are not seeing is any real restructuring of our state government to dramatically bring down spending. Granite Staters like to think of themselves as frugal Yankees but this is a myth. Look at how taxes and fees are climbing, factor in our high property taxes and the whole notion of New Hampshire as a low-tax paradise begins to fall apart.

 

  • New Hampshire Does Not Need Gambling Or New Taxes To Balance The Budget: “The fact is we wouldn't need gambling or any of these new taxes if we could just bring our spending in line.”

FOSTER’S DAILY DEMOCRAT: Anti-Business Lawmakers Must Be Stopped Now

Editorial

May 31, 2009

 

  • The Democrats Are Threatening New Hampshire’s “Business-Friendly Environment”: “New Hampshire’s New Hampshire's reputation as a state with a business-friendly environment is at risk. It might mean a slower recovery from the recession than was previously thought. We may be in for many more months of hard times. And it is all because of an irresponsible legislative proposal.”

 

  • The Democrats Are “Afraid To Attack” State Spending: “The Senate Finance Committee wants the Legislature to suspend the business enterprise tax credit. Why? Because members of the committee and others in the Senate and House are afraid to engage in common sense government — afraid to attack the $11.5 billion budget for 2010 and 2011 from the spending side. The lawmakers have turned to what they see as an easy escape from the budget woes created by runaway spending and overestimations of revenues.”

 

  • Governor Lynch And The Democrats Are “Running Away From Reality”: “The Legislators — and Gov. John Lynch — are running away from reality. Lawmakers are heaping taxes on top of more taxes, while the governor is downshifting the cost of state government by denying cities and towns the aid they have historically received.....

UNION LEADER: Budget Unreality: Spending Without Looking

Editorial

May 31, 2009

 

  • The Democrats’ Budgets Increase Spending Instead Of Cutting It: “Each of these budgets is based upon the Dan Eaton Principle. During the House budget debate, Republicans objected to the leadership's plan to pass a spending bill first, then go for the tax hikes needed to pay for it. They said, reasonably, that the state should budget like families do, by first determining how much money is available, then deciding how to allocate it. House Majority Leader Eaton rebuffed the criticism with an aphorism: ‘It makes sense to know how much you're spending before you decide how much money to raise.’”

 

  • New Hampshire’s Economy Will Be Devastated By The Democrats’ Budgets: “The economy is shrinking, prices are falling, and yet New Hampshire legislators are preparing to take still more money out of the already sputtering economy to pay for the budget they want but cannot afford to fund with existing revenue sources.”

 

  • The Democrats’ Budgets Are Out Of Touch With “Reality”: “It must be nice to be able to budget without having to factor in reality or accountability.”
