Take back our country from corrupt government and crony capitalism

Seven men together are twice as rich as 16,800,000 median Black households, or 42,000,000 citizens

They are all white. They are all men. They are all rich. But you never hear politicians, professors or protestors criticize these richest men in America, because wealth has its privileges and allows immense power. It’s not just being able to buy your children entrance into the best colleges, or owning a $100 million house that you visit for just one week in the summer, or traveling in private jets, […]

Overcharging for the border wall is a major crime caused by private greed and political corruption

What do a U.S. Navy Destroyer and a proposed fence across the nation’s southern border have in common? Both are ripoffs in their own fashion, designed to enrich private corporations and pay off politicians with campaign contributions or even old-fashioned bags of cash. The Zumwalt destroyer began as a great idea: build a modern, stealth destroyer with a super gun – the Vertical Gun for Advanced Ships (VGAS). Some 32 […]

Republican Mike Lee and Democrat Kamala Harris in bed together for plot against American workers

Talk about two, very strange bedfellows! Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) might be described as Ying and Yang in their public political positions, but when it comes to destroying jobs for Americans, they are as inseparable as Ding and Dong. This odd couple is co-sponsoring the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, a bill that would remove per-country caps for employment-based green cards, and give India a […]

How I fell off a 1963 American LaFrance pumper, and why 70% of fire companies fear closing

Unlike the Army drill sergeant, you can’t recruit the unwilling to become volunteers at your local fire station. And that is causing a huge national problem – too few volunteers to drive trucks, connect hoses, dash into buildings, douse flames and save lives. Some 70% of all the fire companies in the United States are volunteer. Instead of the $180 per hour your grumpy plumber charges, these firefighters risk their […]

Chuck Schumer said he wanted “illegal aliens” to register with government or face deportation, and he opposed calling them: “undocumented workers”

When you recall President Donald Trump’s promise of no income taxes for couples earning less than $50k, which turned out to be a measly $24k, you conclude that he made a promise he couldn’t or wouldn’t keep. The President’s once trumpeted plan to reduce visa immigration has also gone by the big business-approved wayside. Instead, the Don last week doubled the number of H-2B visas, so now even more low-wage […]

The very rich cannot only pay for QM2-size yachts, they have enough $$ to purchase entire nations!

Instead of playing the lottery or completing my 2018 Income Tax, yesterday I imagined I was Jeff Bezos It was a typical day with nothing to do except harass the workers at Whole Foods, so I decided to buy a boat. But not just any boat. A big boat – in fact, a ship. Large enough to carry all my “friends” and impress the other rich folks, including Zuckerberg and […]

World’s 19th largest economy – San Francisco Bay – now qualifies for Opportunity Zone status, because its median income is “only” $117,000

It’s tax season for the peons, but while you are wondering where your money is going, a few developers and bankers are chuckling. San Francisco Bay has been designated an official Opportunity Zone – containing areas where you can invest, make a fortune and pay no taxes – income or otherwise. The IRS describes the deal this way: Opportunity Zones are designed to spur economic development by providing tax benefits […]

VAT is another big reason our factories are closed, and the good jobs have gone overseas

While the public is focused on tariffs and pundits are bemoaning the dangers of a “trade war,” our foreign competitors have the last laugh every day, watching our factories close and our colleges over-qualify future pizza delivery peons. It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, it’s easy to see a solution. Here is one unfair trade example. Germany and the European Union charge a 10% tariff on cars […]
