Confirmation of Osama bin Laden’s death comes at a time when calls for freedom and liberty are sweeping the Arab world. His death represents the removal of a dying ideology and a victory for those who risks their lives every day in the search for freedom.

I was saddened to hear of the death of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who was shot yesterday in Mexico, and the agent who was wounded. My thoughts and prayers are with these agents and their families. Sadly, these men are the most recent victims of an increasingly violent situation plaguing Texas and our neighbor to the south.

This is money that the government will not get to spend and that the American people, who earned this money, get to keep. Failure to block these tax increases would be a direct blow to families and employers and further delay our economic recovery.

The oil spill in the Gulf is a tragedy in every sense of the word. The images coming from the Gulf are distressing, and the deaths of 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon rig are heartbreaking. However, it is very important to remember that this accident is an anomaly. The human error and/or failure of the rig’s state-of-the-art equipment require a complete explanation, and the cleanup operation deserves our full support. Still, we cannot afford to further harm our nation’s economy by halting our offshore drilling, which is why I am calling on President Obama to lift his recently imposed six month moratorium on deepwater drilling and asked that he refrain from imposing a moratorium on shallow water drilling.

The oil spill in the Gulf threatens to become a serious breach of public trust in the environmental safety of offshore drilling, and it has already tragically claimed the lives of 11 hardworking Americans.
What is unquestionably more dangerous is the prospect of this incident being politicized. Senator Bill Nelson of Florida has already asked the President to impose a moratorium on all new offshore drilling.

Financial expert Lance Roberts notes: “We currently have a lot more things in common with the mistakes made in Japan over two decades ago than most economists and main stream thinkers would like to admit. The bubbles in both real estate and equity markets were nearly identical. The same story holds true in the equity markets. The inflation adjusted prices over the decade prior to the peak were identical.”
