Democrats and some Republicans opposed reform [the Federal Housing Enterprise
Regulatory Reform Act of 2005] in part because Fannie and Freddie were very good at greasing palms. Fannie has spent $170 million on lobbying since 1998 and $19.3 million on political contributions since 1990.

The principal recipient of Fannie Mae's largesse was a Democrat, Sen. Chris Dodd (D, CT), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. No. 2 was another Democrat, Sen. Barack Obama (D, IL).

Mr. Dodd was also the second largest recipient in the Senate of contributions from Countrywide's political action committee and its employees, and the recipient of a home loan from Countrywide at well below market rates. The No. 1 senator on Countrywide's list? Barack Obama. -- Check it out HERE:  http://tinyurl.com/4h9955

The poll from The O'Leary Report by Brad O'Leary and Zogby International today revealed that 73 percent of Americans think politicians, including President Obama and Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., should not have profited from AIG and should return the money.  Obama and Dodd were the top recipients of campaign largesse from AIG over the past two years, with Obama getting $104,332 and Dodd raking in $103,900. Others got money, too, but in smaller amounts. All together, AIG donated $644,218 to federal politicians -- Check it out HERE

"Obama is offering the basic Roosevelt method or formula: buoyant American 'can-do' optimism -- in the service of the economy-killing agenda of a high-taxing, high-spending welfare and regulatory state. Get the people to love you for giving them a pep talk that lifts their spirits -- even as you impose policies that dash their hopes.

"If Obama is identical to FDR in his basic method, all we can hope that he does not achieve the same result: another ten years of economic collapse."
        -- Robert Tracinski

Obama’s Backward Economics

“Barack Obama claims that Americans can only stave off economic disaster by trillions in government spending--which means trillions of dollars taxed or borrowed to finance government make-work programs.

 “Obama-nomics couldn’t be more wrong.

“Prosperity requires that the government drastically cut government spending. That way, as   much real capital as possible will remain in private hands, and be put to productive use by  entrepreneurs to create valuable goods and services to sell at home and abroad. By taxing  and inflating our wealth away, Obama will simply be creating more of the crushing debt that brought about the current crisis.

“You don’t put out a fire with more gasoline. And you don’t end a recession by destroying capital.”

What Mandatory Health Insurance Really Means
THE Quintessential Anecdote about Health Care

"Congress has made the economy dead on arrival.  Because any capitalist economy depends, more than anything else, more than on electricity, more than on energy, more than on the internet, more than on communications, on THE - RULE - OF - LAW.  And if government's contracts with its OWN counterparties get abrogated as soon as the lynch mob starts agitating, then there are NO contracts that are worth ANYthing.  Nobody can plan, nobody can invest, nobody can take risk.  THAT is a recipe for depression. And if we don't get that runaway train back on the rails, that is where we are heading, mark my words." -- Don Luskin on The Kudlow Report 3-25-09 here:  http://tinyurl.com/EconomyDOA

"The US requires large amounts of capital for any economic recovery that may take place. Ask yourself one of the most basic questions any investor should ask: can I get my money back if I need to? If the answer is no or only maybe, and if there is the threat of governments robbing investors, then less investment occurs." -- Johnathan Pearce

OBAMA'S GREEN JOBS SCAM: Inefficient eco-friendly technologies destroy more jobs than they create -- Lockitch, Bloomberg, Iain MurrayMax Schulz

"I know you hate it when I bring this up, but how else are you going to learn? 
What sort of economic system do you call it when industry, businesses and financial institutions are privately owned but government controlled? The word would be 'fascist.' 
Never let a good learning opportunity go to waste." -- Neal Boortz

"As every economics student learns, high marginal rates distort economic decisions, the damage from which rises with the square of the rates (doubling the rates quadruples the harm). The income tax hurts those NOT YET
                              richThe president claims he is only hitting 2% of the population, but many more will at some point be in these brackets." -- Michael Boskin  [Besides that top 2% were the movers and shakers who worked 16 hours a day, took enormous risks, made things happen, and created millions of jobs and physical value where none existed before.  Do you really think they'll continue when they're punished for it?  Well,  DO YA, Punk?] 

"In 1897, troops from the greatest empire the world had ever seen marched down London’s mall for Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee. Seventy years later, Britain had government health care, a government- owned car industry, massive government housing, and it was a shriveled high- unemployment socialist basket-case living off the dwindling cultural capital of its glorious past. In 1945, America emerged from the Second World War as the preeminent power on earth. Seventy years later . . . Let’s not go there." -- Mark Steyn

Gee, ain't it great when the GUBMINT takes over things?  Like THIS?
"A large number of people, certainly the majority of the political looter class, think the best way to deal with the rapidly deepening economic crisis is via 'stimulus packages' with money plucked off the magic money tree... which is to say, by trying to re-inflate the credit bubble that actually caused the crisis. This is a bit like treating alcoholics by urging them to buy more whiskey." -- Perry de Havilland
"One Blue Dog Democratic House Member reminded me earlier this month of the saying that 'insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.' He wondered if his fellow Members weren't more in need of advice from psychiatrists than from economists at this point." -- John Fund
"Many politicians and pundits claim that the credit crunch and high mortgage foreclosure rate is an example of market failure and want government to step in to bail out creditors and borrowers at the expense of taxpayers who prudently managed their affairs. These financial problems are not market failures but government failure. ... The credit crunch and foreclosure problems are failures of government policy." -- Stubborn Ignorance: The Financial Crisis is a Failure of Government Policy by Dr. Walter E. Williams
See: "But while capitalism may be a convenient scapegoat, it did not cause any of these problems. Indeed, whatever one wishes to call the unruly mixture of freedom and government controls that made up our economic and political system during the last three decades, one cannot call it capitalism." --

Oh, and Guess what?  It's THE DEMOCRATS who are mostly to blame.
"Republicans don't know how to defend morally an individual's right to achieve wealth and to keep it, and that is why they fail. ... It's part and parcel with their ambivalence over the individualist heritage of the nation. ... One of the things that people have to understand is that the American Revolution was truly an epic revolution in the way individuals were perceived in relation to the rest of the society.  Throughout history individuals had always been cogs in some machine; they'd always been something to be sacrified for the king, the tribe, the gang, the chieftain, the society around them, the race, whatever, and the real revolution, in America especially, was a moral revolution.  It was a moral revolution in that ... suddenly, with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the individual, his life, his well-being, his property, his happiness became central to our values, and that is what really made America unique.  People came here from all over the world to try to escape the kind of oppression they had and experienced in the past. They came here for freedom; they came here for self-expression and self-realization, and America offered them that kind of a place." -- Robert Bidinotto

Finally, I would quote Tibor Machan's ubiquitously useful comment, "This right to life, this right to liberty, and this right to pursue one’s happiness is unabashedly individualistic, without in the slightest denying at the same time our thoroughly social nature.   It’s only that our social relations, while vital to us all, must be chosen -­ that is what makes the crucial difference." -- found HERE

Why is this always just absolutely impossible for government?" - Neal Boortz

"Modern [wind] turbines can be as tall as 400 feet and carry 130-foot, seven-ton, endangered-bird-slicing blades. Building these wind farms requires five to 10 times more steel and concrete than a nuclear plant generating the same amount of power." -- IBD, here
Fact:  It would take enough solar cells to cover 53,760 acres, or 84 square miles, in order to supply as much energy at the same rate as just one average gas station. 
"In education markets, like the Asian tutoring industry, top teachers are superstars who get to design curricula for thousands or even millions of students and train scores or hundreds of other teachers to use their effective methods. Quality providers expand and are emulated by competitors, and there is a powerful incentive for meaningful innovation. ... One teacher in Korea’s private tutoring sector made $2 million last year because his web-based employer has profit sharing and he’s brilliant at what he does, so he gets tons of students. That’s what should have happened to [Jaime] Escalante. That’s the sort of success that should greet excellence in education at all levels. It doesn’t because we don’t have a market." -- Andrew J.

Science disproves global warming
U.S. Senate Report: Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007
"Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus." -- Michael Crichton
"It is time for our school systems to stop accepting the gospel of that false religion and start doing their due diligence. Our children should be taught about the demonstrable solar cycles; and the whole human-caused Global Warming theory, along with the Hockey Stick Hoax, should be taught only as another example, after Piltdown Man and pre-Copernican theories of planetary movement, of how science can be corrupted when ideology gets ahead of the data." -- Orson Scott Card, HERE
So far, 31,000 scientists have signed the petition saying the global warming is NOT caused enough by humans, if at all, to make public policy about it.  See who they are HERE.

"When government will expropriate any wealth that people create, the present value of future output can actually be less than the value of the country's tangible resources. The power of predatory government to destroy wealth is truly awesome." -- Arnold Kling
"Those who support the death tax generally do so not for economic reasons but for political ones. They want to make the tax code 'fair' by taxing away the lifetime wealth of others." -- William Beach-- See THIS.
"When the US government ended 'welfare as we know it' in 1996, it handed responsibility for reform to the states. In so doing, it also created a real-world test of two competing economic strategies used to fight poverty. The results are in and the lessons are clear:  Low tax rates lift up the lives of America's poor."

-- from The Christian Science Monitor, Dec. 15, 2006
"Some observers blame the [Feb. 20, 2007] crash of the Shanghai stock market on rumors of anti-growth tax policy. ... Chinese stocks recovered Wednesday following their worst plunge in a decade as regulators shifted into damage control, denying rumors of plans for a 20 percent capital gains tax on stock investments.  Fortunately, it was just a rumor. It's hard to think of a better way to crush investment and growth than imposing a 20% tax on capital gains.  But wait. If the 2003 tax cuts are allowed to expire after 2010, as per current law, the US capital gains tax will rise to... yes, 20%. And that's no rumor." -- Don Luskin

So far the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has wiped out $1 trillion of market capitalization, has done nothing to improve business performance or investor value, and in fact has provided absolutely no benefits to the overall economy whatsoever, unless you're a large corporation which enjoys seeing the government hamper your smaller upstart competitorsIt has, in fact, turned out to be nothing more than another poor excuse for politicians to claim they've "done something."  Check out "THE REAL COST OF SARBOX" HERE

    "In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing." -- Autobiography of Mark Twain by Samuel Clemens

   "The problem that religious moderation poses for all of us is that it does not permit anything very critical to be said about religious literalism." -- Sam Harris

    "Contrary to popular belief, people who buy political influence are vastly outnumbered by people who are sold political influence by creative or desperate politicians." -- Rick Gaber

    "If liberty should be the highest political end, then what is the grounding for that goal?  It should be clear . . . that, first and foremost, liberty is a moral principle, grounded in the nature of man. In particular, it is a principle of justice, of the abolition of aggressive violence in the affairs of men. ... Justice, not the weak reed of mere utility, must be the motivating force if liberty is to be attained."  -- Murray N. Rothbard

    "Individualism is at once an ethical-psychological concept and an ethical-political one. As an ethical-psychological concept, individualism holds that a human being should think and judge independently, respecting nothing more than the sovereignty of his or her mind; thus, it is intimately connected with the concept of autonomy. As an ethical-political concept, individualism upholds the supremacy of individual rights ..." -- Nathaniel Branden HERE

    "I've torn up my AARP card. I've decided that twelve and a half bucks I was paying to AARP was getting me the most expensive discounts in history. Why save a couple bucks on a movie if I have to pay that back thousands of times over in [much, MUCH] higher taxes [which the policies they advocate require -- BIG TIME]?" -- Don Luskin, HERE.  Some of the evil the AARP has perpetrated is listed HERE

"Evil acts can be given an aura of moral legitimacy by noble-sounding socialistic expressions such as spreading the wealth, income redistribution or caring for the less fortunate. Let's think about socialism.

"Imagine there's an elderly widow down the street from you. She has neither the strength to mow her lawn nor enough money to hire someone to do it. Here's my question to you that I'm almost afraid for the answer: Would you support a government mandate that forces one of your neighbors to mow the lady's lawn each week? If he failed to follow the government orders, would you approve of some kind of punishment ranging from house arrest and fines to imprisonment? I'm hoping that the average American would condemn such a government mandate because it would be a form of slavery, the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of another.

"Would there be the same condemnation if instead of the government forcing your neighbor to physically mow the widow's lawn, the government forced him to give the lady $40 of his weekly earnings? That way the widow could hire someone to mow her lawn. I'd say that there is little difference between the mandates. While the mandate's mechanism differs, it is nonetheless the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of another. ... This is why socialism is evil." -- Dr. Walter E. Williams, in A Nation of Thieves
