Bush tax cuts boosted federal revenue - Washington Times

DWYER: Bush tax cuts boosted federal revenue
- Washington Times

This article is a counter to the liberal view that the tax CUTS under President Bush did NOT provide for greater tax REVENUE. According to this -- THEY DID.

Geology and Election 2000

A wonderful piece of research that profiles a racial correlation to elections and geological features of the Southeast. The "Cotton Belt" or the "Black Soil Crescent" is well defined over time but few have ever seriously connected the geography to the demographics and the historical development involved. Fascinating research.

I know. Joan Baez. But you know... the Marines in Vietnam often referred to this as their theme song.

Constitution led us to Default?

Well, there are many many bruises to the constitution over the years from supposedly well intentioned laws and seemingly constitutionally sound laws .... all leaving the thing relatively defenseless.
...A couple of major assaults ..

A ... Universal suffrage - Probably the first huge chink in a logical approach to governing.  When a very very large percentage of people without property and with great dependence on government support hold the right of suffrage - they are automatically in place to damage the hand that feeds them.  This is the "problem with democracy" that Jefferson as well as Adams feared so much. The REPUBLIC model was supposed to be a check against the rabble of congress (the people's voice).  Jackson was an early proponent of 'populism' which started the ball rolling toward universal suffrage.  It has gone so far as to allow "democratic populism" to override fiscal responsibility. Too late to fix - but a selective suffrage system not based on color or sex or religion - but on property and tangible contribution to the national treasury or to the national defense -- would go a long way to sound policy for all.
...
B... The destruction of states power by changing Senatorial selection from the domain of state legislatures  to the domain of popular vote within the state.  This opened the door for national interests in regional affairs of elections.  Today's senators are not beholden to their states in any meaningful way as were the Senators before 1900.  They are tools of large global or national interests with little to hold them on track with the wishes of their own state's citizens. When senators were chosen from smoke filled rooms of state legislatures - they were powerfully beholden to the interests of their state and the people THERE - who took their legislators to task in state elections - not national elections affected by massive funds from areas of interest far  from local concern.

The Secret of Oz


Really makes you wonder.

The Money Masters - Full


ok. After this - you have to wonder. One more reason Ron Paul would be a good choice for President but of course he will NEVER get that chance. The fed will squash him first. like a bug.

Silver stock makes sense.

Everybody talks about buying silver or gold. This is a sensible way to do it. Inflation is still only starting - mainly in some commodities not counted in the CPI. Meanwhile housing continues to deflate a huge part of the market. But when it does hit... all the printed up money is going to show itself and inflation will be a major major headliner. This could be a year or three years off but it will happen.

Godzilla - Global Warming

Krauthammer: 'If Godzilla Appeared on National Mall Gore Would Say It's Global Warming'
.....
Who is NOT aware yet that the "climate change" debate is about funneling money from developed nations to undeveloped nations? You'd have to be living in a cave !

H200 Countries, 200 Years

SO... Now you know. I'd like to do this type of time-space graph with the makeup of congress and the party of the president over time - - vs the progress of Americans. I think It would show quite a lot of depends on which party controls congress or whether the congress is in dispute.

The Cruiser Houston: Of Pride and Purpose, part 2

This story is also covered in my own documentary - LAST STAND OF THE USS HOUSTON which can be found at buzzcreek.com. Different set of veterans but some of the same ones are in my much earlier version. The quality of this one far exceeds my own but both are good for a study of the history.
