Make American workers poor again with H-2Bs; Trump bows to business buddies and hotel honchos

During his Saturday campaign rally in Washington, Michigan, the “Hire America” President Donald Trump said that the U.S.A. unemployment numbers were so good that it was now possible to allow many more guest workers into the country to work the fields and take millions of other jobs. The audience gasped and then was silent. It reminded voters, some who vigorously supported Barack Obama, of how that progressive candidate promised to […]

How does a 100% tariff only increase the real price of a pair of prescription $600 eyeglass by only $15?

What does President Donald Trump’s tariffs on $50 billion worth of imports from China actually mean, and how will this affect you? The ministers of mainstream media have received their talking points from the same lobbyists who control Congress, and they are using scare tactics on the public. “A 25% tariff on a product will raise the cost of needed goods by a third, hurting the American consumer,” one son […]

Kochs win again as their boy, Marc, short-circuits Trump MAGA with an anti-populist spending bill

In the North, where there was no slavery, everyone favored tariffs to protect both American industry and wage earners from unfair foreign competition. Today, Paul Ryan, Cato Institute or Heritage Foundation invariably promote cutting Social Security, Medicare, Minimum Wage, in fact they despise anything that helps the middle class. On the […]

If Trump had kept his campaign promise, a $50k couple would save an extra $2,739 in 2018 taxes

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s new tax law will save less than $9 a week for most working Americans, and many may receive cuts as little as $2.70. Meanwhile, a $1 million filer will gain $628 a week. The GOP plan smells like a few peanuts for the middle class and the elephant’s share of the tax cut designated for the very rich. Let’s examine how the 2018 income tax really […]

Trickle, trickle, fools we are, to trust the rich, now flush with cash, will share with us their bounty

The inlaid walnut table in the corporate boardroom held 12 on either side and two or three at each end, and the execs were all perched, prepped to pounce, when I dragged in my 2001 budget – 1015 pages of spreadsheet and other sheet. As division CEO of a NYSE-listed publishing company with nearly a billion dollars sales, my pitch was explain how I would increase sales, restrain costs and […]

Ryan thinks he is John Galt – defender of the rich, enemy of the poor, not a denizen of the swamp?

Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged, begins with a simple question: Who is John Galt? The answer comes in the last third of that 1957 book, where Galt emerges as the champion of capitalism and defender of Rand’s Objectivism philosophy, which has opposed: Child and Adult Care Food Program Federal Housing Assistance Food Stamps Head Start Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program Medicare & Medicaid Nationalized Health Care School Lunch and Breakfast […]
