Take back our country from corrupt government and crony capitalism

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Medicare destruction initiated by Trump, sounds like Paul Ryan. Mr. President feeds us “fake news” to enrich healthcare industry

“As long as I’m president, no one will lay a hand on your Medicare benefits,” President Donald Trump told the seniors at The Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center. He was celebrating the October, 2019 signing of his executive order to allegedly “protect and improve” the program. Most of the audience clapped, but some had fallen asleep, and they were wiser for it. Since he sauntered down the steps of […]

The billionaires who own the media – Part 2

George Soros Besides their age – 89 – George Soros (born Schwartz György) and Warren Buffett, profiled here last week (see Part 1), have much in common: Both are billionaires. Both attempt to avoid publicity. Both have media empires. But, to borrow from the late JFK, Soros is no Warren Buffett. The lovable Buffett is described as the “Oracle of Omaha” and promises to will nearly all his wealth to […]

Democrat poll shuffles deck, but doesn’t count for debates!

The Economist/YouGov poll of Aug. 3-6 on Wednesday, last week, listed the standings of candidates for the 2020 Democrat Party primary, and it was a somewhat different result than last week’s blog on the Harvard-Harris survey. Joseph Biden – 22% Elizabeth Warren – 16% Bernie Sanders – 13% Pete Buttigieg – 8% Kamala Harris – 8% Tulsi Gabbard – 3% Andrew Yang – 2% Beto O’Rourke – 2% All others […]

Big business in India benefits from taxes and regulations that are forcing small competitors out of business – sound familiar?

Big business in India has adopted the tactic of eliminating competition through onerous regulations. Many of us can remember the American corner grocery, local pharmacy, small bakery, tiny-herd dairy farm, one-person law or accountant firm. Tens of thousands of small companies have closed in recent decades, replaced by chains and their monopoly practices of poorer service and higher prices. The three major reasons for the closings are: Huge firms undercutting […]
