Prince Henry “The Not So Great” and wife: public climate warriors and closet polluters

Biden – bowing down to Wall Street – ignores E-Verify protection for our American workers

Employers who hire illegal workers, on or off the books, oppose E-Verify. So does President Joe Biden, who excluded mandatory E-Verify from his amnesty plan presented to Congress on Thursday, last week. Some advocates of workers' rights thought he might instead strengthen the law. Even the laxest mandatory E-Verify provision - which would completely exempt … Continue reading Biden – bowing down to Wall Street – ignores E-Verify protection for our American workers

Why work, when millions can earn much more staying home, collecting $600 plus average $400 state unemployment check

Republican and Democrat politicians, plus the Media brain trust, are missing the catastrophe coming from the $600-a-week Covid-19 unemployment compensation supplemental benefit for all 50 states. In the ivory tower of statistic worship and technocratic analysis, the supplement makes sense. When millions lose jobs, unemployment insurance only covers about $400 average per week.

Perhaps, because he needed extra cash last year to pay grocery bills, divorce lawyers and utilities, Bezos sold $1.8 billion of his Amazon stock, and kept about $1.44 billion after 20% federal capital gains … Continue reading Many of America’s biggest companies paid no federal income tax last year, or had credits under new corporate-friendly tax law

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