Quick Hits - October 30, 2011

Ideological cluelessness - Bill Clinton: "No country on earth believes government is the problem"
I'm reminded, this Halloween season of Reagan's comment on the scariest words ever spoken - "I'm from the Government and I'm here to help"... Bigger government is not better government.

In 2005, Democrats in Congress blocked GOP proposals to fix Social Security - Today, Social Security is officially in the red.  Our biggest fiscal budget bombs are our entitlement programs - Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.  These programs represent the largest increases in the budget over the next 10 years.  Some are projecting that by 2020, the costs for these programs will equal or exceed Federal Tax Revenues.  At that point, we are Greece.

#Occupy - The Nutty and Dangerous Ideology behind the #Occupy Movement...

Big Peace's World View - October 29, 2011

Defeat in Iraq - President Obama's decision to withdraw U.S. troops is the mother of all disasters.

On the 'Lighter Side' - A regular feature from 'Hot Air' - Poll: What was the Obamateurism of the Week?  The Mainstream media doesn't report many of the gaffes, mistakes, and missteps of their President - so Hot Air started early in the President's term a poll to allow readers to vote on the amateurish actions of this President.  Visit the site and cast your ballot.

George Will wrote a column this week that has opened up quite a level of discussion in the GOP circles regarding the GOP Presidential candidate that many believe is the 'given' nominee for Presidnt - Mitt Romney.  Based on this column, Hot Air asks Is Mitt Romney the GOP's Michael Dukakis? 

Now, some local news from 'The Ranch' - Festival for Frights at Richard Rioux Park

A final thought - connecting back to Bill Clinton's quote and the #Occupy movement....
