The Situation In The Ukraine Is Far More Complicated than MSM Is Stating!

It appears that Russia is attempting to handle this situation with kit gloves and based on what we are learning, their anger at the United States and the E.U. may be partially or wholeheartedly justified. There are too many allegations that need to be cleared-up with honest diplomatic negotiations before our belief that we are the world's policeman get us in a situation where we could face another arms race and an escalating war if fighting actually begins.

Romney’s Get Tough on China is BS, Here’s Why!

Romney’s get tough on China is BS and he knows it, he’s merely pandering to a clueless electorate. Most anyone with a basic understanding of the global economy, currency exchange and business alliances forged between U.S multinational corporations and China can perhaps figure out how his rhetoric rings hollow…

Republicans are Thelma and Democrats are Louise

We’re long overdue for busting up the monopoly this bogus two-party has over our political system and our legislative processes. The Democratic Party dates back to 1790 while the Republican Party dates back to 1854 and that’s long enough...

Why Americans Hate Congress

It's no wonder congress has been polling so low. Since the internet was invented, Americans are starting to find out just how congress really works…did congress actually have to pass a (watered-down) law forbidding them to conduct insider trading on the stock market? Members of congress (as well at state legislatures, governors, etc.) are already above the law on almost everything else as it is now. They certainly don't lead by example, so why are they called our "leaders"…

Truth or Consequences in the Budgetary Class War Waged in Congress

The reality is that many of our elected officials no longer believe they are answerable to the people; that the Constitution is merely an outdated piece of paper; and that we the people are largely simpletons whom they mock with their political spin and tales – their smug demeanor evident all the way to the bank. And sadder still is that we mostly prove them correct as we habitually fall along our divisive party lines. Mitch Gurney

Debt Ceiling Crisis – An Orchestrated Crisis?

In Debt Limit Analysis we step aside the finger pointing and fear mongering dominating Washington and the nation and present resources for the reader that if reviewed puts the issue into context and provides insight into the options available to the Treasury in the event this is no agreement to raise the debt ceiling by Aug 2. Clearly because the Treasury will be able to prioritize the bills that need to be paid the government will not shut down nor go into completed default. Here we present a legal perspective of the authority vested in the President...

The Battle over Raising the Debt Ceiling – What might be going on?

Is the crisis atmosphere over rising of the debt ceiling providing an opportunity for political and perhaps corporate strategist to attempt achieving some alternative objective? It’s no secret that many Republicans have wanted to kill Social Security and Medicare since their inception and while ending them in one grand move seems rather remote attempting to gradually chip away at them however seems more likely. I suggested in Endless Wars and Debts and taxes to pay for them that conservatives hate these programs because they believe they create freeloaders plus believe people should fend for themselves…

Bipartisan Lovers when Agenda Dictates

For the really big issues, like government citizens surveillance and wars, don’t buy in on the partisan bickering between the Democrats and Republicans, for the most part it is all just theater. When it comes to critical policy matters the parties are not as far apart as it appears and often rumble in the sack together.

U.S Budget Woes – Getting a grip on a hungry Beast

As the airways heat up over the budget debates with calls of cutting trillions and billions getting a mental grasps of the enormity of the problem can be challenging. Comprehending billions is difficult enough let alone trillions. I find it helpful putting this into context by thinking of it this way; it takes 1000 billion to make up a trillion. The annual spending budget deficit, which adds to the nation’s accumulating debt, is estimated to be $1.5 trillion for this year. That’s $1500 billion. The nation’s debt is currently $14.2 trillion. That’s $14,200 billion. This is before discussing interest on that debt.
