Supercongress

Anyone else notice the idiocy of attacking the alleged problem of government being too big, too wasteful and too out of touch by creating a new layer of government that doesn’t answer directly to the people, would introduce a whole new arena of horse trading and doesn’t actually have any authority under the constitution to cut anything? At what point will they suggest Mega-congress as the solution to that? Ultra-congress?

Van Jones Calls End Of Glenn Beck’s Fox Show A ‘Triumph Of American Capitalism’

As Beck leaves Fox under fire from his bosses at the network and upset sponsors, Jones praised the free market system for ridding the airwaves of Beck.

Thomas Jefferson on Wealth Inequality

I am conscious that an equal division of property is impracticable, but the consequences of this enormous inequality producing so much misery to the bulk of mankind, legislators cannot invent too many devices for subdividing property, only taking care to let their subdivisions go hand in hand with the natural affections of the human mind. The descent of property of every kind therefore to all the children, or to all the brothers and sisters, or other relations in equal degree, is a politic measure and a practicable one. Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions or property in geometrical progression as they rise.
