MONEY: Will Angel Investors Come Back?

MONEY: Will Angel Investors Come Back?

Economics-Business
Angel investors...now that's a term we haven't heard in a seriously long time, isn't it? Welcome to the Trump years! Everyone remember back in the nineties when angel investors became the huge rage? Companies filled with young entrepreneurs springing forth because they got the money elders to back their ideas while giving them much-needed financial advise on how to grow their business ideas into profitable ventures. It was good times, but after eight years of Obama, are they gone forever? With the market doing upturns, breaking new records every day, one can only hope there's a ray of sunshine for the new business dreamer that wasn't there a year ago. It looks the employment is coming back into vogue after a long, long hiatus of people struggling. Obama's tenure has been a grueli

We’re Out!

Current Affairs, Economics-Business, International Politics, White House News
In the White House Rose Garden, President Donald Trump has announced we are officially out of the monetary quagmire of the Paris Climate Accord. After the announcement, the market immediate escalated as the NASDAQ, S&P and DOW demonstrated the market's approval of the US leaving this heavy handed mandate on our economy. Closing at 21,144.18 the market reflects confidence in the President's economic plans and strategies, meaning more investors are willing to push money back into the market, correlating into job creation and a push towards a booming economy. In the speech, President Trump reiterated the importance the American people, stating, "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris." In a detailed announcement, he spoke of the nuts and bolts, s...
Democrats: Starting A New Spin Cycle

Democrats: Starting A New Spin Cycle

Business, Current Affairs, Democrats, Economics-Business, Government, Issues, White House News
Democrats never cease to amaze with their spin cycles. This week's flavor is President Trump's proposed budget which they say will kill children as per NYC disgraced mayor Bill deBlasio! Another day in DC fodder, we've heard many Democrats come out, touting their insidious lies about a budget they probably haven't even read. Instead of actually going over the line items, which would take them a good deal of time, they opt to just put out lies to the public with the Fake News Media willing to acquiesce to their whim. Remember, if it's about Trump, then it's just gotta be bad! Many insane puppets have accused the budget of being hostile, violent, murderous - all because the President is trying to trim entitlements to people who, in reality, don't really need them. In fact, much of the ...
ENOUGH with the Russians Already!

ENOUGH with the Russians Already!

Economics-Business, Issues
This story has gotten seriously old and worn out beyond comprehension... Ever since the election, everyday actually, there's been some different hysteria going on with the politicians and MSM that has gone way too far. The DC squatters have done everything in their power to retain power! Yet, they've done absolutely nothing for the working class in this country that pays their salaries. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. First, McCain and his evil twin Graham just happened to leak a dossier about Donald Trump pissing on some bed and having kinky sex which was all ginned up nonsense because the Toxic Twins DC style can't deal with the fact their guy pal Jeb didn't get through the first month in the primaries. Then, we had Pelosi, who doesn't even realize that George W. Bush isn't our

What's with all the seemingly mass hysteria surrounding Donald Trump's inauguration? Trying to remember if there was ever such dissent and discourse in our history, the only other time that comes to mind is 1969. The country was already embroiled in vehement debate because, unlike today, we were in the first widely televised war. After the initial discount, it soon became obvious that in the 60s, liberals were protesting because they didn't want to go to war while now, they're protesting because they don't want to go to work! Trump supporters voted for a complete change in DC and the way it does business. No longer are we willing to accept the skyrocketing spending sprees, forced Obamacare and governmental meddling into our every decision. Finally, we've awoken up from our Liberal/MSM h...
CONSUMER CONFIDENCE: Shelter for the Coming Storm

CONSUMER CONFIDENCE: Shelter for the Coming Storm

Economics-Business, Government, Issues, Legal, Media, Trump News, Trump Transition
By Adam Gingrich PA Political Consultant @DissingerToupee Economists have been all over the map with their economic analysis of a Trump presidency. Make no mistake, they are as divided by partisan lines as they are by their respective provisional core sector needs. Be that as it may, what most economists overlook in America is the power of the consumer confidence index to essentially mitigate, if not significantly alter, the down-trending aspects of our economy. In the coming days, we will be drowning in siren calls from the leftist media sources about the upcoming market correction. True, the bullish market that's heading into a consumer-friendly holiday shopping season will tend to hide some of the global and domestic blemishes. There is no hiding from the coming Fed rate increase...
Is It Time To Go 1787 on Academia?

Is It Time To Go 1787 on Academia?

Corruption, Economics-Business, Education, Government, History, Legal, Trump News
Over the last few weeks, colleges like Emory have declared that, like sanctuary cities, they will become safe havens for illegal aliens; thus, providing cover for illegals to avert federal law enforcement agencies and continue to live in America. One thing academia seems to forget is, unless they're private institutions (and even then there's still some gray areas) they depend on federal monies to fill their already overflowing coffers. Like those cities, is it time to cut the proverbial fiscal cord and let them dangle in the wind? Perhaps they should look to their on-staff historians (professors) for counsel about just what's in that crazy ruling document we also call the United States Constitution. As it seems, Academia has now joined the mayhem of immigration enforcement on the premi...
1787 Anyone?

1787 Anyone?

Corruption, Economics-Business, Government, Legal, Trump News
With all the hyperbole this last week from truculent Mayors and Governors, telling the Trump Administration they will continue to harbor illegal aliens, perhaps it's time for us to revisit the fiscal policies of our framers. The fact is this, our founding fathers never saw the federal government as a cash cow for states. States were always meant to be self-supporting with their own exports to the union and beyond as well as taxation from its citizens in order to fix their own infrastructures, fund their education systems and oversee their communities' indigent population. Federal level's fiscal mission was to support the military and protect Americans from enemies foreign and domestic by supporting the intelligence communities. (Illegal Aliens by the framers' definitions fit into the en...

What Sanctuary Cities Should Understand…

Corruption, Economics-Business, Founding Fathers, History, Issues, Legal, Media, Trump News
Back in the day when our framers were structuring our Republic, they never allocated money to the colonies. This Federal money situation really didn't come into play until Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal as a way to 'fix' the Great Depression. As we know, the New Deal only prolonged the Depression and also created a bureaucratically nexus where states became heavily dependent on the Feds supporting their extremely excessive spending! Hence, it created a culture of 'double dipping' where states get money from two taxation systems instead of just one. In the colonial days, the states' rights included sovereignty which included self-financed. The states got their coffers filled by tax money from their goods and services produced by citizens; this included importing and exporting to other

Insider Spills Details of Hillary Speech to Goldman Sachs!

Economics-Business, Election News, Founding Fathers, Government, Philosophies
Much has been made by Bernie Sanders during the primary and now Donald Trump about the transcripts of Hillary Clinton's speech to Goldman Sachs. It has left another mysterious mark on her candidacy which is more enticing than Trump's 2,000-page taxes! The secrecy surrounding those transcripts has left much for conjecture. Many assume it was some feel-good moments between Clinton and the large banking mogul that contradicts her vilification of Wall Street to voters so they believe it's a reputation issue rather than something deeper. Clinton has often changed her rhetoric to mirror the company she's in, much like many politicians whom depend on donations and tax dollars to irk out their fortunes. However, it is particularly interesting that she guards those verbal interchanges with mo

Obamanomics Strikes Again!

Economics-Business, Government, Issues
Last night on the Dave Ramsey show, a most interesting reminder of Obamanomics as it rears it's ugly head once again. This time, it was about the health insurance industry that will have you steaming! As Ramsey stated, people are more interested in Hillary Clinton's diapers, they're missing the bigger catastrophe that awaits should Donald Trump not win the presidency -- and here's why... It seems many insurance companies are going to raise their health insurance premiums between 44-68% next year. This is a pretty provocative and expensive escalation for every American as it's now mandated we all must have health insurance or face some federal penalty! (A most unconstitutional mandate.) Wasn't it Obama and Nancy Pelosi who promised us that insurance for everyone would go down with th
