  1. The Political fallout from the Coronavirus.

    Just before the coronavirus hit the US, and even with the impeachment trial in full gear, President Trump was in pretty good shape headed toward the election in November. I'm not saying he was a sure winner, but the impeachment trial was a dud and the economic numbers were definitely in his favor. The arrival of coronavirus changed everything. At first, I think everyone would agree that from a political perspective it could only serve as a negative for Trump's chances at being reelected. It was ...

  2. Nunes Vindicated... Schiff Implicated... Looking Back & A Serious Question

    A few weeks ago, Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report on the FBI's 2016 counter intelligence investigation of the Trump campaign and answered questions about it during 2 days of testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

  4. A New Low for the American People Seems Inevitable

    Looking back to 2008, although the election of Barack Obama was a disappointment to me personally, from a national standpoint it was something for the American to be proud of.

  5. Outsourcing and the Decline of the American Workforce

    This is from a post I made in response to a NY Times article about Disney laying off workers in Florida.


    There are many reasons in my opinion for this kind of thing happening, and happening more frequently. First off, America can no longer compete with foreign companies and foreign workforces. The cost of doing business in the US is high compared to other nations. Corporate taxes are the highest in the world, wages are among the highest in the world and the amount of costly regulations
