Please join us Thursday, October 27 at 6:30 pm for our October Meeting with Jack Cashill.
The Levee, 43rd and Main Streets, KCMO
In the last decade, writer and producer Jack Cashill has had eight of his books published, seven of those non-fiction, three of those best-sellers. His most recent book, Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Loves, and Letters of America’s First Postmodern President, is now in bookstores.
Mourdock, however, earned the admiration of national conservatives, and of people who are partial to the rule of law, when he rightly, if unsuccessfully, contested in court the terms of Obama’s Chrysler bailout.

But in the Chrysler case, secured creditors received less per dollar than an unsecured creditor, the United Auto Workers.
The handwriting is now on the wall. A huge part of the 2012 campaign will be pro-growth tax reform versus “fairness,” redistribution and soak-the-rich. In a stalled-out economy, I’ll take the supply-side bet anytime. Pro-growth, flat-tax reform is going to win.
