Coming Soon To a Country Near You…

coming-soon

Lisa and Carrie-Ann Beaney currently live in a taxpayer-paid “single B&B room” in England with their four children and claim they are too stressed to work because of homophobic bullying. Lisa, 30, quit her job at McDonald’s after just three months and Carrie-Ann 23 has never worked at all.  Outrageous. They each had one child before becoming…

Social Security and Medicare Are Already Welfare

old-man-batting-with-cane

We have a basic problem in this country that we are not willing to face.  Over time our retirement programs of Social Security and Medicare have changed from insurance type of programs into Welfare programs.  We have overpromised and underfunded retirement benefits that we cannot afford.  Even these current “fiscal cliff” negotiations, which were supposed…

Mitt Romney “Gets” What’s Important

Mitt-Romney

At the DNC, Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio, Texas, said Mitt Romney “doesn’t get it.”  According to some, Mr. Romney doesn’t relate to the “little people” because he didn’t grow up like average folks.  Well, so what?  Mitt Romney comes from money, I don’t.  I don’t want him to “get” my life; I want…

Within that sliver of American history, politicians stopped playing games and worked together to face down a threat that had put our very way of life in…

“Money for Nothing and Your ‘Chits’ For Free”

money

I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but I just can’t help myself. I run a law office which operates in Washington and California.  I keep calendars, meet deadlines, know in which court my husband is expected to be, and do tons of paperwork.  When I order supplies, I know exactly what I’m buying and know…

Drug Free for Free Money

drug-free-for-free-money

Anyone who’s ever read my posts knows how much I hate government waste.  The only thing I hate more than the government hemorrhaging money is the lack of oversight and accountability to the taxpayers. I work for my husband so I don’t have to drug test.  But think of how many millions of workers have…
