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.
