Coburn Tells Truth… Will Not Receive Invites to Christmas Parties

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Senator Tom Cuburn was on This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday and intimated that he was ready to accept a tax increase if Dumbocrats would put entitlements on the table. Without putting Medicare out there -- for those of you that think that the federal edifice can be preserved, which I have begun the process of thinking that is less and less likely. If you’re not going to either terminate or seriously reconfigure Social Security and Medicare -- which consume about two-thirds of every nickel the federal government has to borrow -- if you’re not going to seriously reconfigure those two things and tell people they’re just going to have to freaking deal with it, grow up, put a helmet on, life stinks, deal with it, your federal edifice is not going to survive.

The Federal Leviathan Needs To Be Downsized Before This Last Train To Brokesville Derails

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Just to put this in perspective, this would mean that our mighty, gargantuan federal leviathan would have to exist on a paltry $1.2 trillion. In other words, it would have to exist on the expenditures of the last year of the Reagan administration, in 1989. Chew on that for a moment. Think about that. Then come back to me and tell me exactly how, practically speaking, this can possibly financially or numerically or mathematically work itself out. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

What Did You Think Decreasing The Size And Scope Of Government Would Look Like?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Again, I fail to see why anyone that participates in, advocates for, and has been dreaming about shrinking the federal leviathan, why you are not taking the chance or the opportunity to hit the ramparts, to dig yourself in, and to encourage those that have a vote or say-so in this to hold the line. Folks, this is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it? What did you think it would look like? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Obamacare – An Austrian Economics Lesson

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In Human Action, you learn one of the principles of the Austrian economists is you can’t predict what people are going to do. A scheme like the Affordable Care Act is what you should call a planned market. It is a centrally-planned market. Centrally-planned markets don’t work. They do not deliver what it is they are created to deliver. They don’t deliver it because they can’t. It is impossible to predict human action, thus the title.

States Need To Give Federal Government All Their Powers Or None At All

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – With the revelation of Franklin Pierce’s veto of the indigent insane bill, my perspective on fighting the federal leviathan has taken on an entirely new tint now. I always knew there was no general welfare power granted to the Congress. I wasn’t aware that a first generation descendent of the founder had actually had to deal with it and so forcefully and so mightily and so irrevocably demolished that idea that it wouldn’t gain a majority in the Congress for another 80 years. That’s how powerful Pierce’s smackdown of Congress was. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Caller Aaron Discusses Waste, Fraud And Abuse In The Military

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’m currently a member of the military and have been for a while. I just deployed and got back from Afghanistan. I have firsthand experience of what you’re saying. This is a complete boondoggle. There were maintenance contractors and intelligence contractors and so forth earning well into the six figures in their income and they really didn’t do anything all day long. In fact, we sat over there not doing anything all day long. There are some people over there that have it rough, but for the most part it’s like a college campus or spa over there with minimal risk.

Will Congress Raise The Debt Ceiling? Of Course They Will!

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Speaker of the House John Boehner and company plan to begin dealing with this this week. There are a couple plans out there. I love how the National Journal story frames this today. [mocking] “They’re going to begin their deliberation with the far right-wing plan of Paul Ryan.” The far right-wing plan of Paul Ryan, you mean the one that adds trillions of dollars of new debt on top of the mountain which is 15 Everests high that already exist? That’s the far-right plan? I shudder to see the far-left plan. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Social Security Disability Could Learn From Aflac And Other Private Companies Who Aren’t Broke

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Congress faces 2016 deadline to save Social Security’s disability program.” Now hold on just a cotton-picking moment there! What do you mean save the Social Security’s disability program? Where’s the trust fund? I thought that there was a trust fund out there. I thought this thing was solvent all the way up until 2033, we were being told just a year ago. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

We Can Reform, Alter, Abolish . . . Or Secede

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Seriously, does anyone believe that any of this chicanery, any of this subterfuge and unconstitutional excessive abuse of power has stopped since all this began? Is there one surefire way that you can ultimately say no to the NSA, no to the IRS, no to the CIA, no to the EPA, no to the Department of Education, no to the Department of Energy, no to the FDA, no to the FTC, no to the ABC agency of your choice? Yes, there is. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

He and Rand Paul and Paul Ryan are all going to Romney Palooza, a big hoop-de-doo gathering out in Utah that is hosted by the former candidate. “Romney retreat to draw three GOP presidential hopefuls.” The retreat is called the Experts and Enthusiasts event set for Thursday and Friday in Park City.

Tennessee Valley Authority – Just Another Entitlement Program

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It’s all regulated by the state. These things are operated under the supervision of these god-awful things called public service commissions. All they do is ensure that the utility is guaranteed to make a vast, vast profit on the sale. They could still make the profit, but if they had to compete for it, they would then have to actually be out and in the business of marketing. They might have to improve delivery of services. There are all kinds of things that could happen if there was competition for the generation of electricity. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Increase In Community Can Lead To A Decrease In Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Angelo Codevilla had written about how the elites, whether they’re Democrats or Republicans, pretty much all go to the same schools, live in or near the same cities, attend the same parties, go to the same functions. Most of these functions and events we’re describing here and talking about are not attended by people like us, people that might go to a Tea Party rally or may go to a republican ReFounding Father Society meeting or something to that effect.

Social Security Is A Giant Ponzi Scheme – The Money’s Been Spent!

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you need any more proof, as if you needed it, that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, and that there is no trust fund, and that the trust fund was squandered and used in real time decades ago, here you go. It’s contained in the story. If the immigration bill the Gang of Eight is proposing is passed, it could provide a boost, says the story. It could provide a boost for Social Security.

78,000 U.S. Military Troops Are Stationed In South Korea And Japan

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Patrick J. Buchanan wonders on the pages of The Imaginative Conservative website yesterday just why it is that we have 78,000 troops stationed in Japan and South Korea. There’s no place to trim any of this stuff. Our vainglorious empire cannot be whittled down one iota. The world is relying on the American people’s ability to borrow money and enslave future generations into debt repayment. The world is relying on this for their own defense.

Can Libertarianism And Republicanism Co-Exist?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – According to Politico, the libertarian brand of Republicanism is making inroads and a big comeback. I will tell you that certainly when it comes to young people, the youth, they tend to be more libertarian. There’s a problem with that. Young people age. As they age, they tend to become a little less libertine or libertarian. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Imagination Is What’s Needed To Unplug From The State

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would suggest to you that there are few people out there who could imagine what life would actually be like if you actually had to take care of ourselves, if we had to actually run and mind our own business and our own community, if we were actually forced, because of the conditions we have foisted on ourselves, to do all these things for let’s say one-third the cost that we’re currently doing them at. That’s an imagination that few people have. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The American Sheeple Agree We Should Forfeit All Our Income To The National Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – How is it that 60 percent of the imbeciles out there believe that if some alabaster-clad, marble-pillared building in Washington would just spend more of other people’s money on other people’s children’s education that all would turn out right with the world? Sixty percent of the nitwittery out there thinks the national legislature should spend more money on education. I just have to ask the question: Why? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

State Of The Union Is Just Partisan Political Theater

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Most State of the Union Addresses now are big political events. When I say political, I mean partisan political events. Whoever it is that is the occupant of the executive title of president will now normally give a pitch, a sales pitch on all the things he’d like to see done in the next year. It’s not necessarily an accounting of what has happened. It is a laundry list of what the current president wishes to happen. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Real Christian Charity Means Caring For Your Neighbors When They’re Sick… Not Going to FluCare.gov

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Shouldn’t we have FluCare? We do have FluCare, it just doesn’t come from a governing agency. It comes from Christians who believe it to be their duty to care for their neighbor. No moneys exchange hands here, no writ of power has been granted, just the peace of our Lord and Savior weighing on that individual’s head saying: This is what you were taught to do. This is what Jesus taught you to do. This is what Christianity tells you that you must do. Remember, you care for the sick. You don’t job it out to the Red Cross. You feed the hungry. You don’t job it out to the food bank. You clothe the naked. You don’t job it out to Nike. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Why the State Wants You to Beg Them for Marriage Licenses

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - My friends, my goodness, the assimilation of the life of an American citizen into a symbiotic relationship with its government is complete. We are the freaking Borg. As a matter of fact, if they make another Star Trek movie, they ought to make the United States government out to be the monster. It assimilates anything that it touches, and it assimilates it for its own benefit, or for the benefit of those that are in power. That is the status the American people find themselves in today.
