Here is the straight poop.

At the Republican Convention Gov. Palin makes a joke,

"What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?

Guess you had to be there, but it got a laugh.

Forward to Sen. Obama using this metaphor to connect President Bush's policy to Sen. McCains ideas. He goes down the lipstick road and says something like McCain's proposals in comparison to Bush's is like putting lipstick on a pig.

Well all hell broke loose with some trying to say that Obama is calling Palin a pig.

Well, I wonder

Sara Palin vs Jay Leno - No Blinking Contest

When I first heard that Governor Palin was to be Sen. McCain's running mate for Vice-President I was confused.

I am still confused, but I really do like this video.

In the long run I think Gov. Palin, if nothing else has a lot of moxie.

Ireland to hold second Lisbon Treaty referendum?

Seems the European Union just won't take NO for an answer.

EU officals expect Ireland to hold second Lisbon Treaty referendum

European Union officials expect Ireland to cave in and hold a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty in Autumn 2009.
Why should this be?

Ireland has been under French and German pressure to hold a second vote and Autumn 2009 has emerged as the favoured date among officials and diplomats ahead of the European Union summit on the future of the Lisbon Treaty next month.

Ireland has refused to deny that a second referendum could occur, following the 'No' vote in June.

The document has been written by an influential group of French officials, called Le Amis du Traite de Lisbonne or Friends of the Lisbon Treaty.

Whatever, seems that the EU does not understand the concept of Democracy.
Unless it comes out with the correct results.

California and New York Taxes

Does anybody in these two states have a grip?

I am not rich, but when the politicians attack the rich, they attack my employers, hence I left California.

How Not to Balance a Budget

Anyone who thinks the path to "fiscal discipline" is through higher taxes ought to look at the current budget spectacles in New York and California. The two liberal states have among the highest tax burdens in the country, yet both now find themselves with huge budget deficits and are debating still higher taxes to close the gap.


California has the highest state income tax rate in the country (10.3%), while New York State also has a high income tax rate (6.85%), with the combined state and city rate rising to 10.5% in New York City. Their overall government spending totals also happen to top the national charts. And, what do you know, California is $15 billion in the red this year while New York is trying to close a $6.4 billion 2009 budget hole, which budget expert E.J. McMahon of the Manhattan Institute expects to grow to $26 billion over three years.


The "progressives" who dominate politics in these states target the rich on grounds that they have the ability to pay. They also have the ability to leave. From 1997-2006, New York State lost 409,000 people (not counting foreign immigrants). For every two people who move into the state, three flee. Maybe the problem for New York is merely bad weather, not high taxes.
Except that sunny California is experiencing a similar exodus. Over the past decade 1.32 million more native-born Americans left the Golden State than moved in -- despite beaches, mountains and 70-degree weather. Mostly the people who have fled are the successful, the talented and the rich.
