It’s back again, with something new at the end.
We are coming to an election where the most important number is in doubt: is the unemployment rate really 9.6% as the government says or 10.1% as Gallup postulates? Americans for Limited Government thinks they have an answer.
But the group Bankrupting America says neither figure tells the story.
Maybe one solution would be to stop regulating us to death? Ben Lieberman of the Competitive Enterprise Institute explains on FOX News.
Yet our elected leadership simply doesn’t get it. They create straw men to pass blame to, for one.
Yes, that was recorded at Obama’s Bowie State appearance. Do you think the man has that feeling about someone like moveon.org?
I don’t think Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gets it either. Ron Futrell of Liberty.org tells the story.
In the most recent Freedom Minute, Renee Giachino describes how liberals are running scared.
The guy who should be running scared is Chris Coons; otherwise Delaware voters may be the ones frightened by their tax increases.
I’m still laughing about that one.
I think over the next two weeks I’m going to devote my FNV series to candidate videos – not necessarily the ones done by other media outlets who may or may not have their own agenda, but done by the candidates themselves. Here’s an example from County Executive hopeful Joe Ollinger.
Okay, time to shift gears. Last weekend I was at the Good Beer Festival and I brought my camera. This is an up-and-coming young local band called Naylor Mill. (With a name like that, they have to be local.)
The sound is just a touch overmodulated on the video (it sounded better on my computer before I uploaded it) but you get the idea. In a future FNV episode I’ll feature other stuff from the band.
But for the next couple weeks it’s going to be primarily candidates on themselves.
