Whenever there’s a story about someone rampaging a school and killing innocent students and teachers, many politicians (and usually the media) decree the guns to be the culprit. But the real problem isn’t that too many people have access to too many guns. The problem is that there are insane and mentally unstable people who [...]
So who emerged as the winner of the fiscal cliff deal?
Everyone, including the middle class that Obama is supposedly “saving,” has lost.
The entire fiscal cliff debacle was about one thing, and one thing only. It was a question of morality. Do people want to take responsibility for themselves, or do they [...]
I wanted to write a blog post with a warning so that when if and when my predictions come true, at least I’ll have the solace of knowing that I warned people. The primary topic covered will be concerns about the US dollar and how it will affect investments and the economy as a whole.
