I want a divorce.

Let’s say that American political groups have reached irreconcilable differences.  How about we just divide America in two?  Everyone freely chooses their new country.  All resources evenly divided on a per capita basis.     The dividing line is Maximal Government versus Maximal Liberty.  Well, Obama can call Maximal Government whatever he’d like.  And Maximal … Continue reading

Geithner says that letting tax cuts expire won’t hurt the economy. Great!  ‘Cause we all know how trustworthy he is with numbers. (Thanks to Jake Tapper, member of that nigh-extinct species know as “reporters”.)
