Out and About on a Tuesday

Ostensible Trump supporter Ben Carson is either a lot dumber than we thought, or he’s sticking the shiv in Trump with surgical skill.

Jay Cost – who knows more about American politics than 99.9% of us – says no one should fear a brokered GOP Convention.

King Abdullah II of Jordan proves conclusively that Christians and Muslims can be friends.

Obama is still the best gun salesman in human history.

Make people work as part of the welfare requirement and this happens:

In the first three months after Maine’s work policy went into effect, its caseload of able-bodied adults without dependents plummeted by 80 percent, falling from 13,332 recipients in Dec. 2014 to 2,678 in March 2015.

And that, my friends, is why Big Government liberals are opposed to welfare reform…and it’s not just that people will move off the rolls and become independent, but the additional horror that we’d need fewer bureaucrats…and that, in the end, means lower donations to the Democrat party.

Glenn Reynolds suggests a bit of punishment for Attorney Generals who try to criminalize dissent.

    From Senator Mike Lee:

    “…President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department released sweeping new regulations effectively rewriting the tax code …”

    “Not to be outdone by the economic folly of their colleagues at the Treasury Department, bureaucrats at the Department of Labor have published 1,000 pages of new regulations—collectively called “the fiduciary rule”—targeting the investment industry that will make it more expensive and less likely for low and middle-income Americans to save for their future”

    This is not how the American people expect their government to work, because it’s not how the federal government is supposed to work. The rules and regulations governing American society—especially those that have a major impact on our economy—must be debated and passed by elected members of Congress, not negotiated by industry insiders and unelected regulators behind closed doors in the shadowy federal bureaucracy.”

      The last thing anyone in charge of this dumpster fire of a system we’ve got is for people to get free of it…and, still, even right now, if a person works hard, lives frugally and saves money it is possible to eventually build up enough independent wealth to be able to thumb the nose at most actions of government. And the people in the government just can’t stand that.

    …..we’d need fewer bureaucrats…and that, in the end, means lower donations to the Democrat party.

    And there is a direct correlation, and is why Democrats oppose defunding PP. That tax payer money flows directly back into Democrat campaigns. Public unions, big education, and even the climate change slush fund have become money laundering organizations for Democrat campaigns.

      De-funding the left is the silver bullet – if we can get the left away from taxpayer funds, the left will wither on the vine because, at best, only about 10% of the people really go for that nonsense. It was only after the government started to fund the left during the New Deal that the left started to rise to power.
