Well, we officially live in a Banana Republic.
Moral hazard can exist when a party can take risks without having to suffer consequences. In 2008, the world, due to the financial sector, fell prey to moral hazard. A global industry was bailed out at the expense of consumers, homeowners, and taxpayers. In 2020, the world watched with fear as an unknown virus swept … Continue reading What Just Happened?
Three of the four WNBA Finals playoff games have been played at the same time as the NFL.
In honor of my 200th post, I’m going to deliver a list of the twenty most impactful- people, things, and events in my life. And, likely yours
The woman was a symbol for all of us. A symbol we should revere and cherish. She put country over self, and she showed it with her last deed as Queen.
Two positive stories showing democracy is in fact doing OK
There's no way America will resolve her inflation crisis any time soon because of this Congress. We shot ourselves in the foot by locking down and turning off the economy. We had a chance to lessen the economic repercussions by electing leaders who carried out the will of the people. Instead, our elected officials betrayed us. The reckless spending this Congress carried out will inhibit growth and fuel inflation for the rest of this decade.
It’s hard to find a way that would have been worse to go about doing what the administration sought out to do. It seems that everything they have tried to 'fix' has been done in quite possibly the worse method possible.
Government needs to stop trying to fix problems that they have already created. Step aside and let the economy fix itself. It will rise again as the economy comes back online. The only thing in its way are the D.C. bureaucrats.
Regardless of how much you hate Trump, you really need to ask serious questions right now. Why is this happening? What is the endgame? What purpose does this serve? Will you be pleased when we reach the end of the line?
Only D.C. politicians could spend hundreds of billions of dollars and claim it will reduce inflation.
48 hours ago, the question was why. Why would she do such a thing? This writer prefers to be optimistic, and it feels as if she wants to truly make a difference.
It’s roughly 9:00 am on Tuesday, the second day of August, in Taipei right now. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, will be landing in Taiwan via a US military aircraft within twelve hours. The Chinese government have warned that they see this move as an invasion, and therefore, could ultimately shoot down the aircraft. It feels quite possible that the world will change for the worse within the next twenty-four hours.
Does anyone care to press pause and ask what's going on?
Everything is political. Sadly, this has spilled into economics. Data can often be looked at half full, or half empty. But, it's hard to put lipstick on the pig that is the American economy.
So, we're in a recession. Now what?
No, seriously, you can't make this up. That's what someone needs to tell the economists at the White House who have actually opted to make up a new definition for a recession.
It’s amazing how fragile the system is, yet incredible how resilient it has been. The last couple of years have been a real time, ongoing lesson on how the American government should and shouldn’t work based on its design nearly 250 years ago. Most recently, we’ve seen the Supreme Court exercise its power. The naysaying … Continue reading The System Works
Shinzo Abe was assassinated. And, the media did a classic job of showing their incompetence. You had the Today Show display flags of South Korea. NPR, the AP, and ABC immediately described the leader with Nazi euphemisms. It’s a shame when someone from the right succumbs to a tragedy that media outlets dance on the … Continue reading Long Recap
The GOP is winning a culture war right now. This was proven with the Virginia election results back in November of 2021, and seen with polling in Florida when you examine policies DeSantis has been initiating. While a culture war may result in the party regaining Congress, it’s not what will keep them in control. Why? It’s the economy, stupid.
