I love postage-paid reply envelopes

The “doc fix” is a recurring budget gimmick. Every year, the budget contains an assumption that Medicare will severely cut payments to doctors. Congress passes that budget to make the overall numbers look good, then later they always sneak back and undo the cuts to doctors. This year, Speaker Boehner teamed up with Democrats...

Gold is happy

And Zimbabwe Janet will be at the printing presses, monetizing as much debt as she needs to keep the Ponzi going. Gold is happy.

WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! We’re taking our web site and going home! WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

In the distant past, the Southern Poverty Law Center was once a legitimate civil rights organization. Sadly, it is now a complete farce and a left-wing political machine, labeling everyone to the right of David Brooks a “hate group.” Well, by its own standards, the SPLC is clearly a hate group, as domestic terrorist...
