“Steampunk Palin defies classification into any literary genre, unless there’s a genre I’m unaware of simply called ‘WTF?!’”
The Heritage Foundation reminds us of the importance today holds in American history. It was thirty years ago today that Dutch took office:
Reagan set the tone of his presidency during his inaugural address. One mission of his presidency was to rein-in out-of-control government spending that caused high unemployment and double-digit inflation. In this day and age when more and more people within the government believe that more government is the answer, we remember what Reagan said during his famous address:
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.
Those are lessons that should be well-remembered in today’s political climate. The core of Reagan’s philosophy is that he believed in America. He believed in the people of America. He believed that if you worked hard, there was nothing that could not be accomplished, and nothing that should prevent the accomplishment. It is a belief that seems to be lost on too many people in Washington.
I was in the third grade when he took office. I remember that because we had an election in our class that day. I voted for Carter, as my parents most likely did. Reagan crushed both Carter and Anderson in that third grade class.
Thank God for Ronald Reagan. There will never be another.
Turns out most weren’t so much “anti-war” as they were “anti-Bush”:
Hard to believe, right?
When you subsidize something, you get more of it.
When you tax something, you get less of it.
That’s why liberals keep taxing cigarettes.
So what happens when you raise corporate income tax raises?
The founder of Jimmy John’s said he has applied for Florida residency and may recommend that his corporate headquarters move out-of-state as a result of the Illinois tax increases enacted last week.Jimmy John Liautaud told The News-Gazette on Tuesday that he is angry about the moves, which boosted the individual income tax from 3 percent to 5 percent and the corporate income tax from 7.3 percent to 9.5 percent.
“All they do is stick it to us,” he said, adding that the Legislature and governor showed “a clear lack of understanding.”
“I could absorb this and adapt, but it doesn’t feel good in my soul to make it happen,” Liautaud said.
Clearly, Jimmy John isn’t a patriot in the eyes of the left. Cue the typical call for boycotting delicious sandwiches delivered freaky fast.
Especially considering what he said about the unions:
Liautaud also lashed out at union protesters who demonstrated against a “low-cost” contractor his company is using to build a Jimmy John’s in Urbana. That restaurant will provide 30 jobs, he said.
He said he’s sick of being “pummeled.”
“I’m not sophisticated enough, smart enough or politically correct enough to absorb it all,” he said.
GREAT SCOTT! He used low-cost contractors, as opposed to high cost union labor. Imagine the gall of a business owner trying to keep expenses low in order to make a buck.
Greed is ugly.
“I’m not a greedy American pig,” Liautaud added. “I’m a hard-working, bread-baking, meat-slicing delivery guy who happens to be immensely successful.”
And I salute that, Jimmy John. Personally, I’ve never eaten at one, but I will now.
