***Paul Ryan leads the way with a sensible budget.
Ryan’s budget calls for a simpler, fairer income tax system, with lower rates and fewer deductions. Ryan proposes just two marginal rates, 10% and 25%. It also lowers the top corporate income tax rate to 25%.
Read the whole thing. It obviously won't go anywhere as long as the Democrats have the Senate and the White House, but hopefully we can change that this November and get back on the path to fiscal responsibility.
***EIB sponsor stands up to the Left's War on Rush (and business in general). Check it out.
First of all, this is not a "boycott." This really surprised me, and I'm not a Pollyanna about what's going on in America and with Rush. This is a terrorist action. We have had people in our company. We have a female vice president, for example, a 30-year-old woman who's an MBA and a lawyer that was told that she was -- called repeatedly that she is -- a "woman hater." This is a young woman who pulled herself up by her own bootstraps and went to law school on her own dime and is called a "woman hater." This story has not gotten out. This is not a boycott. This is an organized terrorist attack, and coming from all over the country.

The Baker and the Farmer
A baker in a little country town bought the butter he used from a nearby farmer. One day he suspected that the bricks of butter were not full pounds, and for several days he weighed them.He was right. They were short weight, and he had the farmer arrested.
At the trial the judge said to the farmer, "I presume you have scales?"
"No, your honor."
"Then how do you manage to weigh the butter you sell?" inquired the judge.
The farmer replied, "That's easily explained, your honor. I have balances and for a weight I use a one-pound loaf I buy from the baker."
