30% of Personal Income Comes from Government

The Wall Street Journal reports good news as personal income rises .5% in August, the best improvement of the year. Well, not so fast… The Capital Hill blog is reporting that the reason is not private sector growth, but in fact 60% of the increase was due to government transfer programs. Yes, that’s just another term for wealth transfer.

Govt Share of Personal Income

It’s frightening that nearly one-third of personal income comes from the Government. Even worse is that more than half of that is through wealth transfer programs. The number has risen around 5% since Obama has taken office. He really does believe in “spreading the wealth around“!

FreedomWorks Advertisement with RWNJ

Well this was a surprise…  Hopped onto Drudge Report earlier today and was surprised to see my children in an advertisement!  It’s a shame they didn’t do the photo large enough to see the URL to this site (maybe I should have had the lettering larger)…  I’m also quite surprised that FreedomWorks didn’t contact me to at least give me a heads-up! 

Original image is here, taken from the Cincinnati Tea Party rally. Photo was actually posted to Instapundit and taken by Chris Blanchard, but I couldn’t find any contact info for him. That photo actually gave me a ton of exposure! I ended up getting credited on Michelle Malkin’s site as well, which was a boon. Quite a few readers still here from then.

10:10 Pulls Global Warming Assassination Ad

Observe the latest in the scare tactics of the Global Warming followers. The 10:10 Global Organization was forced to pull this ad a mere hours after it first appeared:

A shame to hear that Gillian Anderson (of X-Files fame) provided the voiceover for this. Also participating in this display of hate speech was Richard Curtis (of Black Adder, Mr. Bean, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and Notting Hill). Just remember, no pressure… we’ll just assassinate you if you don’t comply.  James Lee would have been proud!

Thankfully, 10:10 has realized the ad missed the mark and put up an apology on their site.

Back Online

Well, the database corruption was pretty nasty… Guess I really should check my backups a bit more carefully!  We’ve lost several months of posts and comments, but I’ve salvaged what I can. I’ve learned the hard way to keep things up to date!!!

We’re back online and should be flowing again. I hate losing several months of data, but there’s nothing that can be done. Thanks for all the words of encouragement!

Sean Hannity Pulled from Cincinnati Tea Party

Sean Hannity has been pulled from the Cincinnati Tea Party tonight by Fox News.  Early reports were that Hannity had to leave for a personal emergency. Later, news started coming out that Fox News executives ordered Hannity to withdraw from the event. Hannity was reported leaving the University of Cincinnati campus prior to a scheduled book signing event.

Fox News executives are reportedly upset that the Cincinnati Tea party was potentially profiting from Hannity’s planned appearance, having nearly sold out tickets for the scheduled April 15th, 2010 event at Fifth Third Arena (which seats around 13,000) at the University of Cincinnati. Tickets for the event ranged from $5 to $20.  The Cincinnati Tea Party paid for the facility and had no expectations of turning a profit on the event but stated that any overage would be used for future Cincinnati Tea Party sponsored events.

I was hoping to have the opportunity to attend the event, but had scheduling issues. It will be intesting to see what Hannity says regarding this. I’d certainly have expected that Hannity would have taken another course of action (perhaps paying for the facility himself) had he expected a reaction such as this. When I was listening to his radio program this afternoon he sounded very upbeat and anxious to get to the arena for the event. It’s clearly not a decision made by him.
