TAX CUTS: Is it a good thing?

TAX CUTS: Is it a good thing?

Economics-Business, Government, History, Legislature, Presidential, Trump News
As it stands the average American worker works six months of every calendar year to pay their taxes... this is not only irresponsible it is highway robbery considering what we get in return for our bucks... Looking at the Market today -- surpassing 22K - we can easily ascertain they are ignoring the DC scutterbut and continue to trade at a robust rate -- enough to make our market soar for the time being. Why? Because they like our gold-spinning Commander in Chief, regardless what the media and Democrats would like for you to believe! They know Trump and know him well. History, history and more history... The way many on the Hill are reacting to the Tax Reform proposal, one would wonder if it is a good thing but in fact, history shows us, it's always a good economy when Americans and b...
The Trump Economy: Segment I

The Trump Economy: Segment I

Business, Economics-Business, White House News
Another month where jobs were added... 220,000 jobs were added in June and months before more jobs - and the stock market continues to hit new highs almost weekly. We've jumped by leaps and bounds but the Liberals are still complaining. What's the Democrats problem? Do they not want Americans working and enjoying prosperity? It would seem so... In the months after his swearing in, President Trump's economy has been on a steady incline. We've seen consumer confidence come springing back, the markets doing well, lower gas prices and more jobs! The economy is a good indication of how a president is being perceived by more than just the market but also the people! It's almost like having a happy glip in your stride. Sweet crude oil [trading] price has reduced substantially since it's ...
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!

We’re Out!

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…

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
