Boscov’s Department Stores reported the largest December profit ever made by the company. Between Dec. 4 and 31, the chain made $26 million, company officials said. Boscov’s is still awaiting $35 million in loans the state is trying to arrange to help the 39-store chain regain solid footing.
I don’t want to accuse Boscov’s owners of fanning economic fears to foist an unnecessary Boscov Bailout on unsuspecting Pennsylvania taxpayers…or do I?
Michael Steele wins his bid for the Chairman’s seat in the RNC. This is a truly historic moment in America as the Republican party elected the first African American as National Chairman. In comparison, the DNC can lay claim to being the party that successfully ran the first bi-racial President.
Congratulations to the new National Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
The governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, has been convicted of abuse of power in an impeachment trial at which he was accused of trying to sell Barack Obama’s empty Senate seat to the highest bidder.
Mr Blagojevich, a former Democratic ally of Mr Obama, is the first US Governor to be removed from office in 21 years.
Marathon Pundit is overjoyed….I think. Lt. Governor Pat Quinn has been elevated to full Governor this afternoon. For a moment, I was worried that Chelsea Clinton or Caroline Schlossberg would have started a whining campaign for the seat.
Canada got the ball rolling by refusing to allow an unrepentant domestic terrorist and close friend of Barak Obama to step foot on their soil.
It seems almost inexplicable, until you know the truth about Bill Ayers.
Melanie Morgan, along with Move America Forward and allies picked up the torch lit by Canadian immigration officials and organized a rousing rally outside St. Mary’s College. The Catholic college had invited the unrepentant terrorist and former member of The Weather Underground to speak to the faculty and students. Wonder what he discussed at this lecture? Perhaps his logistics for the elimination of 25 million people? Or maybe he discussed the finer points of The Weatherman’s mantra“Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.”
This guy, given the opportunity and equipment, would kill again and vote for Obama…again.
The 2.1 Trillion Dollar Theft has passed the House – 244-188. NOT ONE REPUBLICAN VOTED FOR THIS CRAP SANDWICH.
The Dems own this, and the President has staked his re-election on this.
The Cato Institute worked with 200 economists exposing the unsound economics of the obama bailout bill:
“There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jumpstart the economy.”
— PRESIDENT-ELECT BARACK OBAMA, JANUARY 9 , 2009
With all due respect Mr. President, that is not true.
Notwithstanding reports that all economists are now Keynesians and that we all support a big increase in the burden of government, we do not believe that more government spending is a way to improve economic performance. More government spending by Hoover and Roosevelt did not pull the United States economy out of the Great Depression in the 1930s. More government spending did not solve Japan’s “lost decade” in the 1990s. As such, it is a triumph of hope over experience to believe that more government spending will help the U.S. today. To improve the economy, policy makers should focus on reforms that remove impediments to work, saving, investment and production. Lower tax rates and a reduction in the burden of government are the best ways of using fiscal policy to boost growth.
Obama has gambled his presidency on this Democrat backed 1.2 trillion dollar tax payer bailout. 4 million jobs, estimated to cost the taxpayer 290,000 for each one, will be the measure of success or spectacular failure for this administration.
Philadelphia Representatives Allyson Schwartz (D) and Patrick Murphy (D) were quick to take the hard earned tax dollars from their constituents – that would be me – now is the time for Philadelphia citizens to hold them accountable for every penny of it.
Contact Allyson Schwartz and Patrick Murphy and request they release the backers of all the earmarks – it is your money and they work for you. While you are emailing them, it would be interesting to know their plans on bringing a portion of the 4 million jobs promised by their President to Philadelphia.
First The One practically xeroxes the Bush Administration’s 2007 Executive Order 13440 and passes it off to the public as his own executive order regarding Gitmo. Flopping Aces has the detailed account.
Now The One has cribbed Bush’s address to Congress on Sept 20, 2001 when interviewed with al-arabiya (CNN of Arabia). This Ain’t Hell has the cached pages and screen captures of both sets of text. Read and decide for yourself.
I suspect our pro abortion Catholic VP has been coaching the One on the finer points of plagiarism.
