With the growing story coming out of Ukraine, the ongoing search for the missing Malaysian jet, the intensifying Nevada cattle battle, and the new announcement about the additional Keystone pipeline delay, little attention is being paid to the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy—or any of the other fifty lapsed tax breaks the Senate Finance Committee approved earlier this month. But, despite the low news profile, the gears of government continue to grind up taxpayer dollars. The Expiring Provisions Improvement Reform and Efficiency Act (EXPIRE) did not originally include the PTC, however, prior to the committee markup hearing on…

Death and taxes

Welcome to the Income Tax Day edition of Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. April 15th wasn’t only Tax Day, it was also the deadline (sort of) for enrolling in Obamacare. As the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change reflected on this, he came to the conclusion that it was a genuine “two-fer” as far as the government is concerned.

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Attorney General Eric Holder, speaking before the House of Representatives, proposed the implementation of “common sense” gun reforms like the Rube Goldberg nightmare in today’s cartoon. Seriously, when some screaming maniac chainsaws his way into your house on a dark and stormy night and is shredding the closet door behind which your terrified family is huddling, do you want your gun disabled…

Obamacare enrollment great

  This is the kind of response we’ve come to expect from a feel-good, we know what’s good for you better than you know what’s good for you, liberal after one of their liberty-stealing, budget-busting laws fail to work out according to plan. Check out this tidbit from Nancy “pass it to see what’s in it” Pelosi during a press conference following the announcement by Obama that 7.1 million Americans—a number he pulled out of his derriere—had enrolled in Obamacare. “Madam Leader, isn’t the real measure of success, not the raw number who signed up, but how many of those…
