GE's Crony Capitalism: The Saga Continues

The other week, I blogged here about G.E.'s crony capitalism tactics that take advantage of tax code loopholes and other special treatment for big corporations by big government.  FreedomWorks has long been beating the drum against rent-seekers like GE and Duke Energy, so it was a little surprising that yesterday's  New York Times article, "G.E.'s Strategies Let It Avoid Taxes Altogether,"

"Si, Se Puede" President Obama

"Si, Se Puede" President ObamaMany Republicans and Democrats cannot figure out exactly why President Obama is absent on the Colombia Free Trade Agreement.  President Obama obviously believes that free trade is valuable and recently applauded himself when he returned from South Korea with a signed FTA in his hand.  So why isn’t Colombia, one of our only democratic allies in South America “worthy” of a similar agreement?GOP Senate Leader Senator Mitch McConnell can’t figure this out either and recently published on Oped in the Miami Heral

Hash tag, #, Retweet, RT, @........A New Language.

I sent my first “tweet” a few days ago, and must admit, that at first I didn’t “get it”. But now I see the value in this Social Media platform; I guess one must always experience something to really understand it.   The value of Twitter is this: Tweets are faster than Facebook, and for high profile, fast moving, and fluid events i.e.

Go Idaho! Local Elections Matter

Do you remember filling out your ballot in November 2010?  I most certainly do remember re-electing my Governor, and attempting to unseat my Congresswoman.  But I also remember that there were lots of less known folks up for election, folks like your School Superintendent, or Treasurer, federal and state judges, your police chief, sheriff etc.  And if you are like me, you had no idea how to vote in concern to these smaller posts.  But hopefully like me you went to the internet and tried to determine to the best of your ability where these lesser known candi

Do I spot a chink in the Armor? We Tea Partiers can only hope so.  Project 21 and FreedomWorks Fellow Deneen Borelli recently wrote a hard-hitting, accurate piece of anaylsis in the Daily Caller concerning the long awaited counteroffensive to President Obama’s war on fossil fuels.Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2011/03/07/the-counteroffensive-to-president-obamas-war-on-fossil-fuels-begins/#ixzz1G7BuXncI

GE Cronies Cuddle Up to Tax Code

Business Week does a great job of outlining GE's tax code shenanigans. In sum, the company has laid out big money to powerful DC lobbyists to take advantage of and keep various breaks and loopholes in the tax code.  This isn't anything new or particularly surprising, but it is a great example of what happens when you have a toxic combination of a long and complex tax code and rent-seeking corporations who have been able to carve out special treatment at the expense of individuals.

"Waiting for Superman", an "Inconvienient Truth"

“Waiting for Superman”, an “Inconvenient Truth”The truth hurts, sometimes the truth is so “Inconvenient” and Hollywood is having none of the truth.  Last night the groundbreaking, jaw dropping devastatingly sad and absolutely truthful film “Waiting for Superman”, directed by Davis Guggenheim (the liberal director of “An Inconvenient Truth”) was not nominated for an Oscar.  Five gripping documentaries were nominated for the big prize; they included: Restrepo, Inside Job, Waste Land, Exit Through the Gift Shop and Gasland.  All of these gripp
