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…
