632: Union Workers Lose as Teamsters Pension Defaults

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 Sanders, is trying to pass the Keep Our Pension Promises Act which would provide a form of bailout to the Teamsters private Central States Pension Fund which currently pays out more than $3 for ever [...]

631: Social Security Headed for the Cliff…

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 brings in by 2028. Those who advocate for bigger government, more spending and big promises need to look at the promises they've already made but can't hope to pay for and those of you who [...]

630: Another Prediction Comes True

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 be right there with you. But a repeal of Obamacare and a rollback of regulation combined with tax reforms are things I'd like to see happen. The problem is, Republicans don't. If you ever thought [...]

629: Elon Musk Calls for AI Regulation

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 the government to institute burdensome and expensive regulation. The established company can afford to pay the cost associated with the regulation while the startup will struggle. It's an old game being masterfully played by Elon. [...]

628: Dysfunction in the Halls of Congress

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 spending projects done is nearly impossible. These are all good things, but it would be nice if, for once, Congress could get some significant spending cuts, tax cuts, and regulation reform accomplished. This has been [...]

627: Net Neutrality is a Silly Made Up Term

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 neutral or even equal. That's because it's a free market and in a free market broad INEQUALITIES that exist. Net Neutrality is a made up term invented by those who want to have the internet [...]

626: Has Yellen Gone Insane?

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 could come from such a ridiculous statement. I am at a loss which leaves me with only one answer. Yellen is drinking her own Kool-Aid and actually believes she can control the market. It's nonsense [...]

625: Trump in Trouble. A smoking gun has appeared.

July 11th, 2017|

I know some of you think I've been watching too much MSNBC but I think Trump has some new problems. It turns out Trump's campaign met with a Russian lawyer because they though she had dirt on Hillary Clinton. That, by itself, is no big deal. The problem is they thought this lawyer was working for the Russian government. What's worse, the guy they sent to the meeting was none other than Trump Jr. The man who sits at the left hand of power. [...]

623: Norway Offers a “Voluntary” Tax. It Did Not Go Well

July 7th, 2017|

That's right, after outrage over a recent tax cut politicians have made it easy to pay more taxes if you feel you're not receiving a firm enough rooting from the government. To date, they have brought in the equivalent of $1,325. You see, most people feel like the taxes they pay are far too high or at least high enough. It's only the other guy doing a little better than we are who are not paying his "fair share." *** MiConnell is all but [...]

622: CNN’s Tough Talk Backfires BIG TIME

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 on the internet who have both time and skill as their weapons. CNN found out the hard way that heavy-handed threats and self-righteous demands will not scare off the hoards of social media-savvy Americans who [...]

621: Are You White? Then You’re the Problem

July 5th, 2017|

That's the claim of one Fairfield University professor. If that sounds like straight racism, you're right! It's the exact definition of racism. I've also got the inside scoop on Austin Petersen's Senate announcement and some great stories on what qualities make us successful. Jason P.S.

620: You Crazy Lunatic, 70 Year Old Man Baby!

July 3rd, 2017|

The media is going bonkers over Trumps latest tweets. They're calling his sanity into question while claiming he's calling for violence against the media. The reality is, both the media and Trump are right...and wrong. I'll break it down for you today. *** Politico has a story out claiming Colorado Springs has tried and failed to create a libertarian paradise. It's an extremely slanted article, but there's plenty we can learn from the discussion. I may manage to piss off everyone today. You be [...]
