632: Union Workers Lose as Teamsters Pension Defaults

By | 2017-07-20T14:07:24+00:00 July 20th, 2017|

Here's a question for you... Why would the federal government pass a law to bail out a private pension program? What business is it of the federal government (or any government) to involve itself in a private contract dispute? Crazy as it might sound the feds, led by Bernie [...]

631: Social Security Headed for the Cliff…

By | 2017-07-19T14:10:01+00:00 July 19th, 2017|

What happens when social security starts paying out more than it brings in? It's going to happen sooner than you think. Right now social security is projected to be upside down in just five years. In addition, the Disability Insurance trust fund will start paying out more than it [...]

630: Another Prediction Comes True

By | 2017-07-18T14:17:16+00:00 July 18th, 2017|

Repeal and replace is now finished and the Senate is having trouble mustering the votes just to bring a repeal bill up for debate. At this point, it's safe to say the congress is incapable of functioning. Some of you could not be happier, and under normal circumstances, I'd [...]

629: Elon Musk Calls for AI Regulation

By | 2017-07-17T14:18:57+00:00 July 17th, 2017|

If you want to know why someone would call for MORE regulation in their industry just follow the money. Once a company has established itself in the space, controlling competition becomes a serious concern. One of the easiest ways to prevent competition from entering the market is to petition [...]

628: Dysfunction in the Halls of Congress

By | 2017-07-14T14:11:20+00:00 July 14th, 2017|

Normally I'd be excited. And maybe I should be. Obamacare reform isn't going to happen. (Even if it does happen) There's little to no hope of any tax reform which means no increase in the debt and deficit and... There's no budget on the horizon which means getting big [...]

627: Net Neutrality is a Silly Made Up Term

By | 2017-07-13T14:20:18+00:00 July 13th, 2017|

I'm so sick of hearing all the proponents of "net neutrality" complain about the FCC's attempt to remove hundreds of pages of unnecessary regulation. None of them have the slightest idea what they're talking about. For starters 'net neutrality' isn't even a real thing. The Internet has never been [...]

626: Has Yellen Gone Insane?

By | 2017-07-12T14:12:54+00:00 July 12th, 2017|

From the mouth of Fed Chair Janet Yellen, "I don't believe we will see another financial crisis in our lifetime." I had to reread the quote three times. From there my mind began to race working all the angles. Why would she say that? What political or economic gain [...]

622: CNN’s Tough Talk Backfires BIG TIME

By | 2017-07-06T14:04:01+00:00 July 6th, 2017|

CNN could not have misplayed their hand worse if they tried. Apparently, CNN is still living in a world where they control the narrative and hold the all the power. Nothing could be further from the truth. The power in today's media is held by the nameless, faceless trolls [...]
