Yesterday British Prime Minister Theresa May signed the official document triggering the European Union’s exit provision, Article 50.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a White House press briefing that his department would crack down on those municipalities known as “Sanctuary Cities” by withholding Government grant money.

Over the weekend reports emerged that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner had been tapped to lead a “government efficiency” commission. Kushner’s task was said to be about bringing business efficiency to government operations. Get the message, government is inefficient and businesses are efficient. Hmmm. Governmental agencies are organizations which can be prone to bureaucracy and […](image)

A Week Of Eye Openingzukunftsaugen

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 15:42:23 +0000

This past week has been an eye opener for what a new Republican Congress stands for. How about “for everything” and “for nothing”? Or, maybe “for effective government” and “for ineffective” government? Or, maybe “for sincere government” and “for insincere government”? Hmmm. This first revelation was striking. Republicans had passed legislation to repeal Obamacare about […](image)

Free Market Health Carezukunftsaugen

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 15:16:45 +0000

The Republican sponsored “American Health Care Act” is floundering in Congress. The replace portion (as in repeal and replace Obamacare) is in trouble for curious reasons given that Congress and the Presidency are both in Republican hands. The political farce which is unfolding casts a sharp light on the undeniable fact that there is no […](image)

“Americans” Expect Us To Actzukunftsaugen

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:41:46 +0000

How many times have you heard GOP leaders repeat ad nauseam the mantra “the American people elected us to X or Y”, or “the American people want this or that”? The correct terminology  would be “Some American people…” with emphasis on “some”. This type of honesty and absence of hyperbole would diminish the pomposity and […](image)

The Jacksonian Revolt, Is That What’s Really Happening In Washington-Landzukunftsaugen

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 16:10:39 +0000

There are some bizarre events taking place in the nation’s capital. The President is tweeting (bizarre enough on its own) outrageous charges about President Obama which impugn the office and are completely baseless, and the President refuses to admit his mistake. The Senate is itching to confirm a new conservative Supreme Court Justice as if […](image)

Is The Free Market The Answer?zukunftsaugen

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 15:53:51 +0000

The “repeal and replace” gang have been telling Americans for a long time that healthcare needs to be about choice, that the high cost of healthcare is because the free market is not working, and things will get better when Government no longer comes between the patient and the doctor. Admittedly, supporters of Obamacare have […](image)

In 1973, Robert J Ringer, wrote a book titled “Winning Through Intimidation”, a self help book describing ways to be more successful in the art of selling. For someone who approached business as a “tell it as it is, win-win” person, Ringer’s examples were eye opening. The picture Ringer painted of unsavory, but successful characters […](image)
