The Tax Cuts Worked...And Other Stuff

Busy day today, so just a few scattershot items for now. Dennis Prager exposes the MSM's cowardice and deceit: [T]he argument that publishing the images would inflame Muslims' passions is another coverup for cowardice. No American newspaper or TV news show exhibited the slightest concern with inflaming Muslim passions when they endlessly published and depicted Abu Ghraib abuse photos. Whether to extend the Bush tax cuts will be an issue soon. Nancy Pelosi is her usual calm and collected self when she says "Democrats will fight the president's anti-widow and anti-children agenda." This is a flat out lie. The Chicken Little-ing of the Democratic party is a sight to behold, and the reality is it has become the party of bitching, griping and complaining without the offer of any constructive alternatives. For those interested in facts to refute the impending challenges from your liberal friends, be advised that federal revenues have risen 20% since the 2003 tax cuts. Again it has been demonstrated that tax cuts result in economic growth and more money going to the federal government coffers, not less. The following is absolutely fascinating..and chilling: With few exceptions, the states [in the Muslim world] are marked by poverty, ignorance, and stagnation. It is full of discontent and frustration, yet alive with consciousness of its inferiority and with determination to achieve some kind of betterment. Two basic urges meet head-on in this area, and conflict is inherent in this collision of interests. These urges reveal themselves in the daily news accounts of killings and terrorism, of pressure groups in opposition, and of raw nationalism and naked expansionism masquerading as diplomatic maneuvers. Sounds like another rather direct analysis of the turmoil we are seeing, no? Well, this was part of a U.S. government study issued in 1946. Daniel Pipes discusses it in greater detail.
