I'm not sure how familiar you guys are with Andrew Breitbart, but I couldn't recommend him (and his work) more highly to you. Chances are, if you do know who he is, it is because of the now-famous ACORN-prostitute videos he helped facilitate the release of last September.
As great as those videos were, and the fall out for the radical-Leftist ACORN was, Breitbart has so much more to offer.
Spend a few minutes and check each of those sites out, and make Breitbart.com a "Favorites" on your home computer.
At Big Government.com today, Dan Mitchell discusses the New York Times' report that more and more New Yorkers are accepting the welfare entitlement known as food stamps. As frustrating as this news is, what makes it even worse is the key role some Republicans have played in promoting the culturally-crippling practice of A forcibly taking from B to give to C.
The ranking Republican on the Agriculture Committee is a big defender of the program, in part because of the sordid pact among urban and rural politicians to support each other’s handouts. And President George W. Bush’s food stamp administrator actually had the gall to assert “food stamps is not welfare.” No wonder the burden of federal spending skyrocketed during the reign of so-called compassionate conservatism.
The correct policy, of course, is to get the federal government out of the welfare business. If Mayor Bloomberg thinks it is a “civic duty” to expand food stamps, he should see whether New York City voters agree with him – and want to foot the bill.
The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."
We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."
All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
