Sean Spicer Says You Can Trust Trump If He’s Not Joking: Peter Alexander of NBC News asked White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer whether people should trust the president to tell the truth, to which Spicer said “yes they can, unless he’s joking.” Which is kind of an interesting response considering that as far as I can tell, the whole Trump presidency is basically a joke. Let’s put it this way, if Trump were Pinocchio, his nose would stretch all the way…Continue

For all its intended invented image of indestructibility and endless funding to crush the opposition or using confiscated taxpayer funding along with deficit printed fiat currency, big government will never end poverty. Big government will never spread equality across the land. One thing we can be assured…
CBO Says TrumpCare Means 24 Million More With No Healthcare: The Congressional Budget Office has determined that the new House Republican proposal to rewrite federal healthcare law would throw 24 million people off of health insurance, raise premiums for older, low-income Americans, while at the same time [providing] $285 billion in tax breaks for the top two percent. Yea, but the important thing to remember is that each of those 24 million people will now be free to choose…Continue

NASA Stunned by Photo of Saturn Moon Pan: A new photograph taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, shows a close-up of Saturn’s elusive and odd looking moon “Pan,” prompting some to call the object “space ravioli.” Humm, Pan-fried space ravioli?

New Study Claims Pot Could Lead to Cardiac Risks: According to a new study just released, researchers at Philadelphia’s Einstein Medical Center say there may be a connection between marijuana use and increased cardiac risks - including stroke. Well of course pot can lead to heart failure - especially when you first realize you’ve run out! Hell, the way I look at it, if Trump’s election didn't give me a heart attack, there’s not much chance smoking a joint’s…Continue
After the ACA?
Don’t look for the private health insurance market to fill the breach. It simply won’t happen.
Why? To understand why, you must first understand that markets don’t automatically serve everyone. An example of a market that does serve everyone is that for food. We have food for all price points, fashions and for all manner of ways to consume. So a person can buy raw food that needs hours to prepare and cook, and there are foods you can grab on the run. Clothing is…Continue

Yesterday, I was heading to the post office from my office via my usual short cut. I was in a rush to get there before it closed.
Suddenly, I noticed a shiny new black iron fence in front of me. There was no way around it. I had to walk two blocks out of my way to get to where I wanted to go.
It was obvious why that fence was there.
In recent years, that area has had a lot of homeless encampments. Someone in their infinite cluelessness…Continue
There is a distinct disdain among leaders in society, whether business, academic, or legislative for populism. Populist movements typically exist to protect one group at the expense of others. They are often unconcerned with protecting the aims of business, and appeal to the common man during times of economic distress. Movements are often illogical, based on emotion, thus earning the distrust of intellectuals, and they are unpredictable. If there is anything politicians…Continue
Ben Carson Refers to Slaves as Immigrants: In his first speech as the new secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Dr Ben Carson referred to slaves brought to the United States against their will as "immigrants," drawing quick condemnation from civil rights groups who cast his remarks as offensive. Now I’m no expert on immigration, but I’m sensing those would be about the only “immigrants” in history who would beg to get…Continue
Anyone following the news in recent days should be heartsick and amazed at the public actions of the American president — a man not elected by the people, but by the archaic Electoral College, which must be abolished.
If anything lends credence to the inadequacy of this flawed system one need only point to the…

Lately, I wake in the middle of the night unable to go back to sleep. My insomnia is induced by my memories of a weekend in Weimar Germany, 26 years ago. That weekend was a transformational moment in my life, as it inspired me to interview other Germans…Continue
