It is a new day for the Grand Old Party. Former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele was elected the new Chair of the Republican Party by a 91-77 vote over South Carolina Party Chair Katon Dawson.

Steele is a good man, a good Republican and a good conservative. He deserves our full support.

If you are like me, and you are a political junkie with no life, the proceedings are about to begin on CSPAN. Here’s to Michael Steele as our next chairman.

lol at Obama and this “equal pay” bill

Author: Rory B. Bellows

As if there actually is unequal pay for equal work. This is why liberalism is awful, it takes emotion and substiutues it for reason and we end up with more government controls and one step further down the road to serfdom.

If women really did get paid less than men than some individual could open a business, only hire female employees and undercut their competitors prices by 25%. They could put everyone out of buisness and have the whole shebang to themselves.

Of course under the evil and outrageous anti-trust laws we, for some unknown reason, have on the books that individual would be persecuted for acting in restraint of trade.

No House Republicans vote for transfer of wealth package

Author: Rory B. Bellows

House Republicans are on the right path to establishing credibility on fiscal matters. They opposed President Bush’s bailout bill and today they voted in unison to oppose Chairman Obama’s attempts to transfer one trillion dollars worth of wealth in the name of economic stimulus. Sure the bill will pass but Chairman Obama and hisparty will not have bi-partisan cover for the epic fail this bill will be heading into the 2010 midterm.

What is wrong with doing nothing?

When has government intervention ever worked? The best, ad I use that term loosely, the statists can make for this one trillion dollar transfer of wealth program is that in a quasi-socialist economy further government control isneeded to keep things on the rails. This argument falls flat. Governmen controls begat more government controls. They create new problems which create more controls. In response to the great depression the federal government began subsidizing and encouraging homeownership. That brought you Fannie and Freddie Mae, the Community Reinvestment Act and ridiculously low interest rates. All of these measures were enacted by government in reaction to some supposed market distortion. We see where that got us.

No Republican should vote for the stimulus package

Author: Rory B. Bellows

I’m sure a few feckless Republicans will say “aye” to Chairman Obama’s proposed 1 trillion dollar transfer of wealth scheme, but any Republican possessing a working spinal column needs to stand up to this. This is no stimulus. It’s 1 trillion dollars worth of redistribution of wealth and liberal goodies that could never be funded under a normal budget process so they are being carried to the American public in the trojan horse of economic stimulus. Birth control, mob musems and re-soddng the national mall have nothing to do with the economy. Neither do family planning or money to community organizers like ACORN. $200 billion to the states? What does that do? This is a bailout of irresonsible lunatics like John Corzine. Why are the people of the other 49 states being taxed to put a band-aide over the incompetence of Simple John? This has nothing to do with stimulating the economy and everything to do with redistributing wealth and passing leftist programs under the guise of economic recovery.

This bill is a disgrace. It extends welfare checks to Americans who don’t pay taxes and will create a situtation where over half of the country has no federa tax liability but receives welfare checks and becomes dependent on government. Not good.

Nor will this bill create ay jobs. Not one. Jobs can only be created by wealth and only the private sector creates wealth. Any job “created” by this stimulus package will be funded by taxation- every dollar taxed is a dollar not available to the private sector- or, more likely, printine up money we do not have. Printing up money we do not have only leads to inflation and our mney being worthless.

This is a bill that only people in D.C. could create or support. If the GOP wants to regain any credibility on fiscal matters they need to oppose this bill.
