Michael Schaus is communications director at the Nevada Policy Research Institute and is responsible for managing the organization’s messaging with the public, the media and NPRI’s membership.
Prior to joining NPRI, Michael worked in media as a national columnist, a political humorist and a conservative talk show host in Denver, Colorado. Active in both print and radio, he shared his insights and free-market economics perspective with large local and national audiences.
Michael became interested in economic theory earlier in life while employed in the financial sector. As the liaison between a local community bank and the Federal Reserve, he acquired an in-depth understanding of just how manipulative big government can be toward industry and enterprise. It was that experience with big-government intervention that initially led him into public-affairs commentary.
Lets give a rebuttal Shall we?
Yeah, lets regulate political speech on the internet. Because I know most of us are terrified that the feds don't do enough to regulate peoples ability to speak freely nowadays, right?
Sam Adams pro-liberty group managed to attack a handful of customhouses and kidnap a few tax collectors after the passage of the Stamp Act. (Seriously Lois Lerner is SUPER lucky she wasnt around in the 1700s.)
The Swiss arm of HSBC Holdings Plc private banking arm has been accused of helping wealthy international customers avoid taxes So, when I make my millions, remind me to bank with HSBC.
I know I was surprised to learn that 1.4 degrees of warming (over the last century) was enough to push the cradle of civilization into mass chaos. (Because, as we all know, it was always such a peaceful corner of the world up until recently.)
Al Sharpton owes roughly $4 million in taxes. But I guess the IRS is just too busy harassing conservatives to care about some uppity liberal whos a few million dollars behind on his taxes.
The self-proclaimed activist Attorney General, Eric Holder, told reporters that he fixed George Bushs politicized Department of Justice It was a little like watching the captain of the Titanic proudly boast about his skill as everyone waited in line for the lifeboats.
Its nice to see that New New York (Colorado) still has a handful of anti-Bloombergs among them. A survivor from the Columbine school shooting of 1999 is now pushing for relaxed carry restrictions on public school property.
What is the progressive solution to companies moving their assets outside of the US, in an effort to avoid the worlds highest corporate tax rate? Well impose new taxes, I guess. And if that seems a little silly, thats because it is.
Only a Democrat would think we could solve the negative impact of high tax rates by further hiking tax rates. It takes a very specialized economic ignorance in order to come up with some of the policy prescriptions proposed by the folks at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
So the DEA was planning on tracking everyone that went to a gun show? It might be time to start borrowing your liberal neighbors car for your trip to the gun range, gun store, and gun show. (And, just for good measure, drop by a tea party protest while youre out.)
Unconfirmed reports of Michael Bloomberg weeping with joy have been trickling in since the CDC decided to out-nanny the former NYC Mayor, and ban smoking at every private business in America.
An independent press is the greatest threat to government overreach, and the greatest ally to the preservation of liberty Too bad we dont have one.
Well, Colorado has proven that the Bloomberg inspired gun control legislation wasnt the end of Nannyism in "New New York".
Its not that the State of the Union is completely inconsequential. But our class-warrior-President on the other hand Well, lets just say that he would be a pretty minor character in House of Cards at this point.
In a raging display that resembles the clinical definition of denial, the American left claims that Republicans have abandoned their civil-rights-minded past.
Democrats lied and fibbed to pass their reform. Now they are being forced to exaggerate and deceive in order to implement it How exactly do you think this will end? Do you think everything will suddenly start panning out?
I dont really know how to tackle this. I mean, the transcript kinda reads like the poorly translated instructions that come with furniture made in China. But he did compare the Federal government to a kindergarten teacher.
But, this is Government Motors Living up to their nickname, revenue streams apparently dont actually mater. Market forces, after all, too often get in the way of feeding the environmentalist message.
Im giving serious consideration to suing progressives for falsely labeling their movement. There is nothing forward thinking, or progressive about continuing a century of failed ideas.
