Register for the Economic Workshop THIS Week

If you are planning to attend the Economic Workshop on October 9th, you must register before October 2nd. Seriously. If you don’t, there will be no lunch for you, and there might not even be a workshop. I need to know by the end of this week how many people plan to attend. And a “oh, that looks interesting. I might come out to that” does not count as registration.


  1. This does not correspond with your article, but……. I have to vent !

    WHY I MISS BUSH; (or anybody else)
    Are Things Better Today Than In January 2007?

    * In January 2007 before the Democrats took over Congress, unemployment was 4.6 percent; now it’s 9.6 percent.
    * In January 2007 there were 7.1 million unemployed people in America; now there are 14.9 million.
    * In January 2007 the median home price was $210,600; today it’s $179,300.
    * In January 2007 the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 12,500; today it’s at 10,840.
    * In January 2007 the gross federal debt was $9 trillion; today it’s $13.5 trillion.
    * The poverty rate in 2006 was 12.3 percent; now it’s 14.3 percent
    * In the final budget created by a GOP-controlled Congress, the deficit was $160 billion; now it’s $1.6 trillion.

    Add it all up and: there were half as many people out of work then; houses were worth 17 percent more; stocks were 16 percent higher; the federal debt was 33 percent lower; poverty was 14 percent lower, and; the deficit was 90 percent lower!

    In 35 days you can make your disgust known to Washington and the army of professional politicians whose lives depend on the contents of your wallet.

  2. I could say much about this, but I won’t. Suffice to say, I don’t miss Bush. How can it be good for a country when the president supposedly cuts taxes but increases spending? That’s exactly what he did. In a fundamental way, as Lincoln and FDR before him, he reinterpreted the Constitution to mean whatever he wanted (can anyone say, “Patriot Act”?). Here are a few articles for you to look at:
