Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Tax and Spend Commie President Does It Again

President Bush, in his State of the Union address, claimed to want to cut taxes and cut spending. However, his specific proposals put the lie to his words.

Take, for example, his new health care plan. He is creating a brand new tax on employer-provided insurance plans. At the same time, he wants to increase funds to states to provide health insurance to their own citizens.

That's right, not just raising taxes, but creating whole new taxes.

His proposal also has a remarkably Marxian tone as well. Get this. The stated goals of his plan include not only providing better insurance to the poor, but also encouraging well-off Americans to get worse insurance.

As Bush's mentor once said, "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs."
