Take back our country from corrupt government and crony capitalism

Higher wages, more jobs not from Trump pro-business economy; instead credit goes to DOL for overtime exempt rule change

Business-beholden members of Congress are falsely boasting that their 2017 tax law has been responsible for less unemployment and slightly higher hourly wages. They praise themselves and President Donald Trump for cutting corporate rates from 35% to 21%, eliminating most taxes on dividends and capital gains, doubling the exemption for inheritance tax, and dropping the tax for corporate foreign profits – laundered for years overseas – from 35% to 15%.

Bloomberg bought fifth place in Democrat race for $211,000,000. His plan is to import millions of foreigners and ditch Americans.

Michael Rubens Bloomberg has spent $211 million in self-promoting ads since November 24, including $866,000 for messages just on Saturday, Jan. 11. Pundits say the effort is paying off, and they point to the Real Clear Politics poll average that has him at fifth place in the race for Democrat Party nomination for President. The polls place him less than 2% behind the “Oracle of South Bend”, Peter Paul Montgomery […]

Pains of poverty from slave pay are just ignored by politicians; Elite class uses phony arguments to fight $15 minimum wage

Two big lies have been fed to the American worker by media, think tanks and politicians: Raising the minimum wage to $15 only helps entry-level and very young workers. An increased minimum wage to $15 leads to fewer jobs and closed businesses. The first claim is usually presented as: Only 542,000 American workers are at minimum wage, so why should we endanger jobs for the remaining 118 million full-time workers, […]

Pegaspargase – an example of how we don’t control drug costs

Under Medicare Part B, America’s seniors are entitled to drugs administered in the hospital, but they are responsible for 20% of the cost. That sounds reasonable, and Medicare officials say they carefully scrutinize drugs before approval. But I have yet to discover a list of unapproved drugs. It appears that if the FDA says it can be sold, Medicare pays for it at list price. For a $50 drug, this […]

Young couple (drive two Ferraris and own a $700,000 home) charged $21 for 3-day hospital stay. Average senior pays $1,364.

The corporate exec was sincere when he explained to me why he didn’t pay most of his workers a wage higher than $14.25 an hour: That rate keeps them under $30,000, and that’s about the cutoff for Medicaid and many other public assistance programs for a family of three.  Without Medicaid they would have to pay for health insurance and that isn’t cheap. A raise to $31,000 can leads to […]

Army-Navy Game gesture enraged “Where’s Waldo” watchers, even though Anti Defamation League once called it a mere hoax

The Army and Navy academies are looking into whether circle-hand symbols by cadets and midshipmen at a football game on Saturday were related to hate groups. Some three “signals” were spotted. There are 4,389 Army cadets and 4,526 Navy Midshipmen. The odds any single one of them was involved is nearly one in 3,000. That’s about the same odds as being drafted into the NBA, or six times the odds […]

America gives away our jobs and factories to China with a lopsided de minimis rule promoted by global businesses

Zach Mottl, chief alignment officer of Atlas Tool Works and a past chairman of the Technology and Manufacturing Association of Illinois, is a very unhappy American. Four of his state’s members of the House of Representatives are trying to block the White House effort to lower the “express shipment” measure included in the de minimis rule. This regulation currently allows China to send us goods without any tariffs or customs […]

Congress forces USPS to subsidize mailers in China and gouge Americans nearly six times as much to send the same package

Billions of dollars of goods are imported from China into the United States every week, and very little is exported to that communist monolith from small businesses in our country. Most of our exports are from giants like: Boeing selling planes, Wall Street hawking financial services, or Hollywood offering pablum movies censored by the Chinese dictator-for-life and his all-seeing minions. Is our huge trade deficit because entrepreneurs in China are […]
