A very old story is once again being retold, with a few of the characters' names updated to besmirch the innocent.

Perhaps Rod Livdahl (letter of 3/20) should review his Econ 101 textbook before he presents his next lesson on the subject. “Trickle Down” and “Trickle Up” are not economic terms. They are political terms, coined by Liberals to mock and distort serious economic discussion. There is no authentic “Trickle Down” school of thought that proposed the enrichment of the wealthy by government action in order to allow some of that wealth to somehow dribble down to the masses. “Trickle Up” appears to be an advanced term invented by Mr. Livdahl.
Austin Hill: Michael Moore is releasing a new movie, and I’m sooo excited about it. More about me in a moment. First, the man who brought us “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11” is about to release a new film entitled “Capitalism: A Love Story.” Just as “Bowling” embodied Moore’s left-leaning view that gun rights are bad, so also does “Love Story” advance another idea that is popular among American liberals: Capitalism is evil.
Grab hold of something quick, namely a newly invigorated regulatory state, because the economy is sucking us downward to some awful end, and, by the way, let go of Milton Friedman. The weight of his legacy will only make things worse.

For those who recall the 1961 Inaugural Ceremony, the quote "Ask not what your country can to for you. Ask what you can do for your country," still stirs the soul.
Arguments about spending, the permeating sense of futility when problems and habits are caught in a never-ending loop: Money may or may not be the root of all evil, but it’s the top cause of marital discord . . . and divorce.
Anniversaries come and go, so much so that it’s hard to keep up with them all. But it does speak volumes about how much the world has changed that, 35 years after President Richard Nixon made his historic trip to China, how few people and media outlets commemorated the event last month.
Newly elected Liberal Democratic Party President Taro Aso speaks during a press conference at the party headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, Monday, Sept. 22, 2008.

Regarding the editorial by Richard Carmona: “Politicized attacks on Pell Grants misguided,” March 30.
Every structure has a foundation which sustains it. With liberals, this foundation is class warfare. The recent cries to “tax the rich” to solve our economic problems are a case in point. Current tax rates are high enough so that raising them more stalls growth and produces less revenue. This is not an opinion, it is a proven fact. Yet they keep pounding the drum, pandering to one of the basest of human emotions: envy.

It is painfully obvious that conservatives and liberals think with completely different sides of their brains! Or more succinctly, one uses it’s brain to think, while the other prefers to let others do their thinking for them. They simply go with the flow because the conservative ‘siren song’ of lower taxes just sounds so pleasant and soothing to the ear!
I have read in this (publication) a letter berating the general concern for our high national unemployment rate and at the same time suggests that corporations have no problem with the high unemployment rate and actually favor it for the cheap labor pool it produces.
