Political Shorts

"77 percent of Americans say the congressional GOP is "not willing enough" to compromise with Obama on the debt"
More dismal poll numbers for Obama and the GOP on debt crisis

Incidentally, a broader tax base coupled with lower rates is just the latest in a long line of initiatives that was a good conservative idea until the moment President Obama embraced it. From "cap and trade" to fight climate change, to the individual mandate as part of health-care reform, these are ideas that began at think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, were supported by Republicans like Bob Dole, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney, and became unacceptable socialism when adopted by this White House.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
