Weekly Wrap-Up

The summer is, unfortunately,  quickly  ending.  On the bright side, that means the 2012 elections are just around the corner and if you are like me that is none too soon.

Just last Saturday, the Romney/Ryan campaign got off to a great start and Congressman Paul Ryan was warmly received in his home state of Wisconsin.  In case you missed his remarks, you can watch what he said here.    

Congressman Paul Ryan appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box  on July 10, 2012 and explained why President Obama’s plan to raise taxes only fuels more spending.  Here he is again, on Fox and Friends, explaining how important this upcoming election is since the US Supreme Court ruled Obamacare a tax. 

Larry Kudlow, writing in the New York Sun, explains that the current economic numbers are anemic, and should be better.

Charles Krauthammer outlines the presidential race in his column today aptly titled Romney’s present, Ryan’s future.   

The Guardian writes that democrats’ nerves start to show as Ryan fires up conservative voters.

Let us know what you think of Governor Romney’s choice of Congressman Paul Ryan in this week’s poll.

E. J. McMahon’s Empire Center has a new report out, the Graying of the Empire State that reinforces what we have been saying for years.  The policies of this state, albeit Governor Andrew Cuomo has made minor, yes minor, changes, are driving our youth and future to states with less government regulations and taxes.

Speaking of the Governor, did you take notice of what he did yesterday?  Now I’ll be the first to admit, I am not “tech savvy”, but allowing people to register on-line when New York does not require any photo identification when you vote, is a recipe for voter fraud.  Why would the Governor do this without any advance notice to anyone, even the Board of Election Commissioners?  We all know the answer, but government officials abandoning public input is becoming far too common.

According to the Sixth Circuit Justices, technology is taking away our personal privacy.  And according to this Oxford Professor, genetically engineering “ethical babies” is a moral obligation.   Technology has done wonderful things in our lifetime, but some people, as noted in these articles, are completely wrong on the wonders of the 21st century. 

Have a great weekend.
