STEM grad still living at home? Amazon and the other tech giants save billions by hiring foreigners, thanks to an ICE ripoff.

Last year, Amazon revenues were $232,000,000,000 – the same total amount as all the combined 2018 budgets of the following U.S. federal departments: Small Business Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Commerce, Department of Labor, Treasury Department, Department of the Interior, Department of Transportation, Department of Agriculture, State Department, Department of Justice, Department of Energy, and Department of Education Amazon’s corporate filing reveals that, far from paying the newly-lowered 21 […]

Employers are getting richer by hiring workers under the table. Politicians fall for the tired scam of “jobs Americans won’t do.”

It was a morning air flight last month in Philadelphia, and I was moving through security at the TSA Pre® line, when the alarm sounded. Pulled aside, I was told to send my wallet and glasses through a conveyor. I couldn’t reach the belt from where I stood, so I asked the TSA agent nearby where to place the items. Shut up and do what you’re told, he snarled. Welcome […]

Military wants $124 billion ($300 million each) to buy planes to equal China’s J-20 ($40 million each); elites want to cut Social Security to pay for this!

Our Pentagon is at it again – spending more money and getting far less value than cost-conscious China. And to pay for the current $916 billion annual maybe-war-to-come budget, the elite politicians want to cut your Social Security benefits. Articles are already floating the idea in the Washington Post by scoundrels like Russian-born Max Boot (not “Das Boot“). Social Security for American retirees is $700.3 billion a year: $644.2 billion […]

You turn 65 and then you must go into a Medicare plan, and you pay a fortune more for far fewer benefits

What a difference a year makes. You are one of the millions of Americans, who don’t have company health insurance. Damned with a pre-existing condition, you carry so-called Obamacare (www.healthcare.gov). Next year, you turn 65 and must enroll in Medicare. There’s no good news, just bad news for you. Obamacare is a far better plan than Medicare and costs at least $1,800 less a year. Worst of all, there’s no […]

If we treat the military budget like Social Security, our Army will consist of only one “Mad Dog” and 3 puppies

The Social Security Trust Fund now totals $2,892,000,000  – just about the highest amount in history, and some scolds are still sad. To promote their austerity charade, the front groups of the Koch Brothers (descendants of the co-founder of the John Birch Society) just released their attack dog, John Stossel. J. S. rants on FOX News about silly things, even suggesting everyone should save some 20% of their wages for […]

Federal Reserve is now big part of National Debt for bailing out banks; Social Security $$ not owed to us?

What government pretends to owe… The Social Security Trust Fund of some $2.8 trillion is often listed in charts – such as the one above – as part of the National Debt. This particular graphic, the latest available, is from the Federal Reserve, an institution that is part of the huge debt and is owed $2.465 trillion by taxpayers. The difference between the Social Security “debt” and the Fed debt […]

Congress votes to destroy Social Security, 233-184

Those April showers have drowned the media this year with reports of a petulant, prosthetic protuberant princess, also know as “What’s Her Name” or “Smarmy Scandals.” Meanwhile, back in Congress, 233 members – 54% of that angst body – voted to destroy the Social Security system by not allowing the use of its $2.9 trillion in reserves, forcing cuts of up to 24% in coming years. As a big boy […]
