Obama Still Making Jimmy Carter Look Good

Algae, European Gas Prices, and Born in the U.S.A – By Victor Davis Hanson – The Corner – National Review Online.

The more Afghans kill Americans, the more the president seems to apologize for our troops disposing of confiscated Korans, desecrated by Muslim-terrorist detainees. Would that Obama talk so deferentially to Americans instead of serially emphasizing their laziness, their nativism, and their past transgressions in the Middle East.

Wyoming House advances doomsday bill.

State representatives on Friday advanced legislation to launch a study into what Wyoming should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States.

House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.

The task force would look at the feasibility of

Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

Jessie Sansone’s arrest over daughter’s gun sketch a case of good vigilance and too much zeal: Joe O’Connor | Full Comment | National Post.

Give a kid a box of crayons and a piece of paper and they are going to draw all sorts of things. Flowers, rainbows, horses, fire trucks, daisies, dogs and cats and Mommies and Daddies, mostly rendered in erratic scribbles, especially if the artist is four-years-old and in kindergarten, like Jessie Sansone’s daughter, Neaveh.

Neaveh, a student at Forest Hills public school in Kitchener, Ont., drew a picture of her Daddy in class this week. Daddy was holding a gun. Upon seeing it, the teacher began asking questions, triggering an avalanche of unfortunate events that saw a triumph of procedure over common sense and an innocent man arrested at his daughter’s school and later strip-searched at the police station.

Making the rich pay their “fair share” brings in less revenue…

50% tax rate ‘failing to boost revenues’ – Telegraph.

The Treasury received £10.35 billion in income tax payments from those paying by self-assessment last month, a drop of £509 million compared with January 2011. Most other taxes produced higher revenues over the same period.

Senior sources said that the first official figures indicated that there had been “manoeuvring” by well-off Britons to avoid the new higher rate. The figures will add to pressure on the Coalition to drop the levy amid fears it is forcing entrepreneurs to relocate abroad.

The self-assessment returns from January, when most income tax is paid by the better-off, have been eagerly awaited by the Treasury and government ministers as they provide the first evidence of the success, or failure, of the 50p rate. It is the first year following the introduction of the 50p rate which had been expected to boost tax revenues from self-assessment by more than £1 billion.

Although the official statistics do not disclose how much money was paid at the 50p rate of tax, the figures indicate that it is falling short of the money the levy was expected to raise.
