Problems with the $750,000,000,000 bailout

The main problem is the cost of homes are too high and too much of a percentage of a family's income. The prices of homes must come down. Has anyone questioned that these bad home loans out there are partially due to the cost of the home? I work with a homebuilder in Northern Virginia. The land costs are what are driving the cost of homes up so much. This homebuilder was paying $450,000 for each lot that they were building townhouses in Ashburn, Virginia. This lot price drives the finished cost of a 3 bedroom townhouse to $600,000 or more. That's a monthly $3,600 mortgage payment at 6% over 30 years. This doesn't include taxes and insurance, so now we are up to $4,000 a month for a 3 bedroom townhouse in Northern Virginia!

Liberal media ignores Obama's overt socialism

It's stunning how little the press is covering Barack Obama's overt socialism as expressed in response to a question he received from a plumber near Toledo, Ohio on Sunday. Plumber Joe Wurzelbacher had a conversation with Obama that included the following exchange. (Some of Wurzelbacher's lines may have been in a different order...it's hard to piece together...but this is the essence of it.) JW: "I'm getting ready to buy a company that makes about two hundred and fifty, two hundred and seventy, eighty, thousand dollars a year.

At Moment of Truth, Where was Dagny Taggart?

The following letter was written by Joseph Bast, President of the Heartland Institute, in response to an article in the Wall Street Journal which Bast believes has sinister implications...and I agree. At Moment of Truth, Where was Dagny Taggart? By Joseph L. Bast The front page of today’s Wall Street Journal carries a story titled “At Moment of Truth, U.S. Forced Big Bankers to Blink,” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122402486344034247.html.

What Would Mises Do?

Over the past several days, I have found myself in the most unusual of positions: defending myself and the organization I work for, FreedomWorks, for to having clung to “ideology” and “principle" in opposing the bailout plan racing through Congress. I had never heard the word principle used so much as a pejorative. You know the tone in someone’s voice when they clearly understand the world and are trying to explain it to someone, well, simple. What was even more interesting was who was doing the scolding. Friends and fellow travelers in the free-market movement, businessmen, Republicans, and limited-government conservatives all took time to tell me how wrong I was.

The REAL Violation of Privacy

< p class="MsoNormal">            In 2005 the REAL ID Act was passed by Congress as a rider in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief.  This new law imposed new security, authentication, and issuance procedures for all state issued IDs such as driver’s licenses in order for an ID to be accepted for official purposes.  Every state is required to comply with this act, permitting only extensions on the timelines for which the program must be fully implemented.&nbs
