Portugal reduces budget deficit, eyes return to debt market as cutbacks pay off

Portugal’s finance minister says his government’s budget deficit likely fell below the target of 5 percent of GDP last year, reflecting successful measures to cut spending.

You mean to tell me that if you spend less than you take in you reduce your debt?  Amazing…maybe someone should have Gaspar call Obama.

State Exchanges and the Cost of ObamaCare

In his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, President Barack Obama stated that “we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit.” With regard to health care, all indications are that the price of health insurance will increase as a result of ObamaCare, with the federal government attempting to pass along these costs to the states by asking them to implement state-run health insurance exchanges.

Liberals Don’t Need Revenue to Grow Government Anymore

Once upon a time, liberals were somewhat principled in their pursuit of a utopian dirigisme.  Sure, they always liked to play a bit of class warfare, but they fundamentally believed in taxing everyone.  After all, if you want a cradle-to-grave government-run society, it’s got to be purveyed by the broad populace. There simply aren’t enough rich people to raise the requisite funds for a rapacious federal monstrosity.

Tech at Night: The cozy Obama-Google Relationship continues

Google employees overwhelmingly preferred Democrats over Republicans in their political giving in 2012, and it shows. Yet another Google employee is hopping over to the Obama administration. This time it’s “evangelist” Vint Cerf who’s joining the National Science Board, appointed by the President

At some point doesn’t somebody become concerned about the appearance of impropriety? Especially when Democrat initiatives like a data cap ban would favor firms like Google over telecoms?

Al Gore: Why no, I’m not a hypocrite for selling Current TV to oil emirs

Three minutes of hilarity come to us today from a rather unlikely pair — Matt Lauer and Al Gore. Give Lauer credit for pressing Gore on the implications of selling Current TV to Al-Jazeera, a global news organization that isn’t sponsored by Big Oil interests, but owned by them.

About why he sold the network, Gore said

”As an independent network, the only independent news and information network, we found it difficult to compete in an age of conglomerates,”

when in reality Current TV was partially owned by Comcast and Direct TV.  They couldn’t compete because their ratings were lousy with anchors like Eliot Spitzer who replaced none other than Keith Olbermann after being fired (yet again) from another news anchor job (remember he had been fired from MSNBC back in 2011 by accusing talk radio, Fox News and many others of causing Gabrielle Giffords’ shooting by Jared Loughner when in actuality he was known as a liberal nut).

Of Al-Jazeera Gore said

“And I’m very pleased Al-Jazeera has established itself as a really respected news gathering network.”

This is the same network that threw a birthday party for Samir Kuntar the terrorist and former member of the PLF, sentenced to four life sentences for the ruthless killing of among others, the 4 year old daughter of an Israeli policeman whose head he smashed against a rock with his rifle.

First, Al Gore told us that he invented the internet, then he tried to sell us the snake oil of man-made global warming and now he is trying not to look like a hypocrite and justifies his actions by attempting to legitimize a news network that promotes terrorism.  And yet, despite the fact that he has been a fraud from the beginning, people still follow him like some sort of guru.
