In the 50-Year War on Poverty, Bureaucrats Have Won while Both Taxpayers and Poor People Have Lost

We know the welfare state is good news for people inside government. Lots of bureaucrats are required, after all, to oversee a plethora of redistribution programs. Walter Williams refers to these paper pushers as poverty pimps, and there’s even a ranking showing which states have the greatest number of these folks who profit by creating […]

Conservative Comedy 9/19/14

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Obama has finally decided that he must send troops to fight the greatest threat to American security. No, not ISIS. Barry is committing 3000 troops to  fight against Ebola. Hey, at least he’s fighting something, even if it is a germ instead of journalist-decapatating terrorists. Although, it would have been nice if he could have done so without lecturing us about the many cultural and scientific contributions Ebola made to helping us land a man on the moon. At least, that’s how the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change sees it. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides plenty of laughs this week on several news stories, including: Barry’s sinking approval numbers, Jay Carney’s current employment situation, and EBT cards being used at marijuana retailers. Additional stories include: a new talking Obama doll, how ISIS handles social media, Detroit’s bankruptcy, and Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. If it’s in the news, Jodi has something to say about it. By the way, Newsbusted […]

Deconstructing the Initiative-Sapping, Taxpayer-Abusing Welfare State

I’ve written many times about America’s looming fiscal collapse, and I’ve also pontificated about America’s costly and failed welfare state. I even have speculated about when America reaches a tipping point, with too many people riding in the wagon of government dependency (as illustrated by these famous cartoons, which even have a Danish equivalent). If […]

Obamacare Could Cause Two Million additional Adults to Leave Labor Force and Become Trapped in Government Dependency

What’s the worst economic development during Obama’s reign? Some would say it’s the higher tax burden. Some would say it’s the wasteful faux stimulus. Others would say it’s the fiscal nightmare of Obamacare. And others would say it’s the loss of millions of workers from the labor force. I suppose there’s no objective way to […]
