636: Trump TV is Pure North Korean Style Propaganda

August 7th, 2017|

If Obama had tried anything like this, the conservative community would have gone into convulsions.Last weekend former CNN pundit Kayleigh McEnany posted a broadcast from "Trump Tower" on the presidents Facebook page.The show resembled a legitimate news broadcast and claimed to be the "real" news.What was it? Pure propaganda. It would appear the president is no longer satisfied with the coverage he's been getting and has decided to do it himself.Is this a one off broadcast or is this a new era in political communication [...]

635: 100% Inheritance Tax? Why not?

July 25th, 2017|

I'm shocked we still have the conversation in 2017, but the fact is most people are ignorant of history and immune to good ideas. Such is the case for Guardian columnist Abi Wilkinson. Wilkinson laments the fact that so many people die with money in their pockets, choosing to pass it on to their family rather than giving it to the government to be redistributed. So, why is an inheritance tax such a bad idea? Wouldn't it be better if Britains took the 77billion [...]

634: Schumer Says Dems are “Namby-Pamby”

July 24th, 2017|

Apparently, the Dems think they lost the election because Americans didn't know what they stand for so, according to Chuck Schumer, they've rolled out a NEW, BRAVE and BOLD plan to win back blue collar workers. What is this plan you ask? In short, new infrastructure spending, a raise to the minimum wage along with paid maternity leave and child care. If you think that sounds a lot like Roosevelt's "New Deal" it's because it is. This is the same platform Democrats have run [...]

632: Union Workers Lose as Teamsters Pension Defaults

July 20th, 2017|

Here's a question for you... Why would the federal government pass a law to bail out a private pension program? What business is it of the federal government (or any government) to involve itself in a private contract dispute? Crazy as it might sound the feds, led by Bernie Sanders, is trying to pass the Keep Our Pension Promises Act which would provide a form of bailout to the Teamsters private Central States Pension Fund which currently pays out more than $3 for ever [...]

631: Social Security Headed for the Cliff…

July 19th, 2017|

What happens when social security starts paying out more than it brings in? It's going to happen sooner than you think. Right now social security is projected to be upside down in just five years. In addition, the Disability Insurance trust fund will start paying out more than it brings in by 2028. Those who advocate for bigger government, more spending and big promises need to look at the promises they've already made but can't hope to pay for and those of you who [...]

630: Another Prediction Comes True

July 18th, 2017|

Repeal and replace is now finished and the Senate is having trouble mustering the votes just to bring a repeal bill up for debate. At this point, it's safe to say the congress is incapable of functioning. Some of you could not be happier, and under normal circumstances, I'd be right there with you. But a repeal of Obamacare and a rollback of regulation combined with tax reforms are things I'd like to see happen. The problem is, Republicans don't. If you ever thought [...]

629: Elon Musk Calls for AI Regulation

July 17th, 2017|

If you want to know why someone would call for MORE regulation in their industry just follow the money. Once a company has established itself in the space, controlling competition becomes a serious concern. One of the easiest ways to prevent competition from entering the market is to petition the government to institute burdensome and expensive regulation. The established company can afford to pay the cost associated with the regulation while the startup will struggle. It's an old game being masterfully played by Elon. [...]

628: Dysfunction in the Halls of Congress

July 14th, 2017|

Normally I'd be excited. And maybe I should be. Obamacare reform isn't going to happen. (Even if it does happen) There's little to no hope of any tax reform which means no increase in the debt and deficit and... There's no budget on the horizon which means getting big spending projects done is nearly impossible. These are all good things, but it would be nice if, for once, Congress could get some significant spending cuts, tax cuts, and regulation reform accomplished. This has been [...]

627: Net Neutrality is a Silly Made Up Term

July 13th, 2017|

I'm so sick of hearing all the proponents of "net neutrality" complain about the FCC's attempt to remove hundreds of pages of unnecessary regulation. None of them have the slightest idea what they're talking about. For starters 'net neutrality' isn't even a real thing. The Internet has never been neutral or even equal. That's because it's a free market and in a free market broad INEQUALITIES that exist. Net Neutrality is a made up term invented by those who want to have the internet [...]

626: Has Yellen Gone Insane?

July 12th, 2017|

From the mouth of Fed Chair Janet Yellen, "I don't believe we will see another financial crisis in our lifetime." I had to reread the quote three times. From there my mind began to race working all the angles. Why would she say that? What political or economic gain could come from such a ridiculous statement. I am at a loss which leaves me with only one answer. Yellen is drinking her own Kool-Aid and actually believes she can control the market. It's nonsense [...]
