Take back our country from corrupt government and crony capitalism

World’s 19th largest economy – San Francisco Bay – now qualifies for Opportunity Zone status, because its median income is “only” $117,000

It’s tax season for the peons, but while you are wondering where your money is going, a few developers and bankers are chuckling. San Francisco Bay has been designated an official Opportunity Zone – containing areas where you can invest, make a fortune and pay no taxes – income or otherwise. The IRS describes the deal this way: Opportunity Zones are designed to spur economic development by providing tax benefits […]

VAT is another big reason our factories are closed, and the good jobs have gone overseas

While the public is focused on tariffs and pundits are bemoaning the dangers of a “trade war,” our foreign competitors have the last laugh every day, watching our factories close and our colleges over-qualify future pizza delivery peons. It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, it’s easy to see a solution. Here is one unfair trade example. Germany and the European Union charge a 10% tariff on cars […]

Double Cross of U.S./Mexico trade deal underway, which will make fools out of American consumers

The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) was signed November, last year, by the President with warm enthusiasm from Congress. The promise was a no-tariff zone, free trade, American prosperity, all good for big business and consumers. Unfortunately, our Negotiator-in-Chief was trumped by Mexico. This House of Cards trade deal will create even larger deficits ($566 billion in 2017), and enhance China’s position as the world’s biggest exporter of goods – […]

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 […]

Jeff Bezos could go on Medicaid if he played it correctly, but the average working Jill can’t

Medicaid rules changed when President Barack Obama pushed through the Affordable Car Act (ACA) and he ensured that the very rich could join low-cost Medicaid, while the working class had to pay high medical expenses, either at work with private insurance or retired under Medicare. While I’m sure Jeff Bezos would never stoop his mightiness to rub elbows with regular folks on Medicaid, it is amazing that he could so […]

Prophecy in 1994 – rebuffed by that Trilateral whiz Charlie Rose – is fulfilled 25 years later

How unfair trade has ruined economy! Television’s historic moments include: America’s landing on the moon, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and for some, various Super Bowl touchdowns, and for others, multi-millionaires accepting honors from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). An interview in 1994 of Sir James Goldsmith by recently humiliated PBS legend Charlie Rose is never on […]

Wife of Chiefs’ owner told she couldn’t print Christmas stamps because of a Russian cathedral background

Nickels, dimes and dreams – author urges that all workers be fairly valued for their time and effort

A Montana coal miner’s daughter recently found herself the honored guest of King Willem-Alexander at the Royal Palace in the Netherlands. It was a case of the guest being better-known than the host, despite title and wealth. Barbara Ehrenreich, Ph.D, who researched and wrote the best-selling Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America, enjoyed her triumph on Nov. 27, when she was awarded a 150,000 Euro ($169,500) prize […]
