Cruising the Web

How nice it is of the Democrats and Obama to admit now that the Bush tax cuts benefited everyone, not just the super wealthy. Of course, they won't admit and the media won't inform people that they've been lying about the Bush tax cuts since they were first proposed.

Why is the US and the IMF pushing to go ahead to loan billions of dollars to Egypt? Does it really seem like a good credit risk today?

And why is the U.S. sending 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt? Why should the U.S. be paying for these jets to go to Morsi? Does that make sense to anyone outside of the Obama administration?

Now if only they'd admit that simply ending the tax cuts would pay for only nine days of annual spending and that the real cuts in runaway spending must come from entitlement spending.

Here's an amazing story of a new treatment against leukemia.

Bret Stephens reports on even more ways that Susan Rice was willing to make peace with one of the most psychotic leaders in Africa, Foday Sankoh, head of the Revolutionary United Front in Sierra Leone. It's a truly horrifying story of Rice's rosy approach to dealing with evil leaders. And this is the woman whom Obama regards as his soul-mate in foreign policy.

Ah, true choice that liberals and unions oppose: the right to decide whether or not to join a union.

Chrisina Hoff Sommers reports on Swedish efforts to stop children playing in gender-specific ways. They seem to want to reject the children's own natural preferences in how they play.

Millionaires are fleeing France's high taxes on the rich to go to a small village just across the border in Belgium. France's loss is Belgium's gain. France is learning what California has failed to learn. The rich are mobile and will leave high-tax locations if it benefits them.

How perfectly ironic that Elizabeth Warren is already in debt and wants a bailout from her supporters.

Here's more push for the Republicans to simply give in on the tax increases Obama is demanding and then go home so as to deny Obama what else he wants in further spending.
