"Best of"- Keeping it simple

If the government pays people not to work and taxes people who do work, is it really so difficult to see why employment is so low?- Arthur Laffer

The mother of all supply-side reforms is incentive pay for politicians...In business, firms align the incentives of decision makers with the incentives of shareholders to ensure that they take the best course of action. Washington must begin doing the same by creating an incentive structure that pays elected officials according to factors such as stock market performance and economic growth. – Arthur Laffer

“Green” President Obama, who lectures us on protecting the environment through things like cap and trade legislation, will not agree to the free trade deal with South Korea because Korean built cars and trucks have better fuel and environmental standards than US cars and trucks. In other words, the President is pro-environment only as long as it does not diminish his power and relationship with unions. Hypocrite. –Dean Kalahar

If it is the first responsibility of the Federal Reserve to protect the dollars that Americans earn and save, is it not dereliction of duty for the Fed to pursue a policy to bleed value from those dollars?… Bernanke is not just risking inflation. He is inducing inflation.-Pat Buchanan

We shouldn't be playing around with inflation. It's not for nothing Reagan called it 'as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man. The Fed's pump-priming addiction has got our small businesses running scared and our allies worried. The German finance minister called the Fed's proposals 'clueless. When Germany, a country that knows a thing or two about the dangers of inflation, warns us to think again, maybe it's time for Chairman Bernanke to cease and desist. We don't want temporary, artificial economic growth bought at the expense of permanently higher inflation which will erode the value of our incomes and our savings. -Sarah Palin

When it comes to the increasing sex, violence and profanity in entertainment media, the social libertines are indifferent. They insist that children will hardly be warped or ruined by the media they consume. They chortle at the paranoia of Hollywood critics. Their mantra: If you don't like it, just turn the channel. But if the issue isn't indecency, but instead, say, obesity, so many of those titans of "tolerance" suddenly become the censors. -Brent Bozell
