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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ryan thinks he is John Galt – defender of the rich, enemy of the poor, not a denizen of the swamp?

Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged, begins with a simple question: Who is John Galt? The answer comes in the last third of that 1957 book, where Galt emerges as the champion of capitalism and defender of Rand’s Objectivism philosophy, which has opposed: Child and Adult Care Food Program Federal Housing Assistance Food Stamps Head Start Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program Medicare & Medicaid Nationalized Health Care School Lunch and Breakfast […]

If all you want for Christmas is your two front teeth, it’s time to borrow $6,400 or pay 1/3 price in India

If our politicians ever make the effort to visit the “little people” – those neglected voters, who don’t live in gated communities and suck gin in the Capitol – our selected leaders will see smiles without front teeth. And that is just the beginning of their constituents’ dental problems. Some 140 million Americans have no dental insurance, and for most who do pay premiums, the coverage won’t cover the cost […]

Some seniors will pay a 296% tax increase under “Deep State” deal with media and politicians

Remember the promise of a tax cut primarily for the middle class? For many Americans that will be a lie, and retired seniors will be hit the hardest, despite the attempted sleight of hand numbers game that “gives” you about double the standard deduction, but doesn’t mention the loss of personal exemptions. Even worse, the so-called reform means that a couple that used to itemize deductions above $12,700 (under 65) […]
