“It is not a question of substituting one ruling clique for another, but of changing the very methods of administering the economy and guiding the culture of the country. Bureaucratic autocracy must give place to Soviet democracy. A restoration of the right of criticism, and a genuine freedom of elections, are necessary conditions for the further development of the country. This assumes a revival of freedom of Soviet parties, beginning […]
With the exceptions of Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump, all of the Republican candidates for President want to change Medicare so that it costs you much more, but guarantees profits for campaign-funding insurance companies. The details are in the Heritage Foundation plan to replace Medicare with a “premium support” plan in which you buy Medicare on the open market and the government reimburses you, based on the lowest price from […]
The Heritage Foundation is the think tank for so-called conservative Republicans, who offer flat tax plans, skeleton government goals and the destruction of Social Security as we know it today. The current Social Security program is regressive, and pays a lower percentage in retirement pension, the more you contribute. A retiree, who has paid in the maximum amount (on wages less than about $118,000 in current dollars), will contribute three […]
Rich look poorer, poor much richer – report distorted to make average Joe happy – despite Depression
It’s so very wonderful to learn this week that “median household income” in 2014 was $53,657, even if it was down from $57,843 in 1999. You can still buy a nice basket of goodies on $50 grand a year. If only it were true. Most jobs pay about $31k. Many families have just one parent or one spouse working. Something doesn’t add up. Welcome to the world of making statistics […]

Spam filter on your email server? Think that big internet provider is helping keep away the criminals? Wondering why the federal government has time to look at every email sent every day by every person, but no time to go after the fraud experts preying on the vulnerable citizen? The answer is that nobody cares except the victims of fraud. If you steal a CD from a store, you can […]
A 52% increase in Medicare Part B premiums is anticipated next year for about 30% of all participants. Nearly everyone older than 65 is on Medicare, so this huge change will affect 12 million or more Americans. And it’s all thanks to legislative changes by our politicians, who get virtually free healthcare for life. Most seniors (about 70%) will pay $104.90 a month, or, oddly, $147 monthly just for the […]
This is my proposed amendment to The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA; also referred to as the Wages and Hours Bill), a federal statute of the United States: In addition to the payment of overtime wages at 1.5 times the normal rate for workers, who exceed eight hours per day or 40 hours a week, the Federal Government shall require employers, who schedule any employee less than 30 […]
The Trilateral Commission – April, 2015, North American membership list, including many very familiar names!
UPDATE: 2016 North American Trilateral Commission list now available here. Have you ever wondered who were the members of the Trilateral Commission, a group which has been in the forefront of world control conspiracy theories for decades? Corporate heads, government officials in trade and commerce, columnists and publishers are included, along with NGO chiefs. One question is whether public acclaim leads to membership in the commission, or does commission membership […]
