An Alternative View To Be Considered When Reading Cato Institutes report that says poor Americans have it too good

Some among the conservative flock think only the needy game the system, as seen by reading this article by Lloyd Marcus, The Ultimate Devastating Price of Government Dependency posted at a conservative blog, The American Thinker. The article reflects a common opinion often perpetuated by many conservatives that poor people are poor because they are lazy and thus more likely to game the system. Consequently their mantra is welfare creates freeloaders and demand the programs be cut. But seldom do they demand cuts to subsidies that benefit the wealthy and corporations nor even acknowledge the existence of the corporate welfare system

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…

The Engineering of Labor Markets

We hear a lot today about "structural unemployment" in America, the notion being that unemployment in America today is related to workers not having the right set of skills for the available jobs in the economy. There is some truth to this, but the reason for this has nothing to do with any inherent realities of a modern economy, it has to do with how American capitalists have intentionally engineered the global labor markets...

Corporate/Elitist Welfare vs. Personal Welfare – An In-Depth Analysis

A glaring contradiction exists in which some conservatives take issue with welfare for the needy but not for the wealthy or corporations…they hate these programs because they believe they create freeloaders and that people should fend for themselves, except for the wealthy and corporations of course… Consequently their mantra is welfare creates freeloaders and demand the programs be cut…but seldom do they demand cuts to subsidies that benefit the wealthy and corporations nor even acknowledge the existence of the corporate welfare system.

U.S Debt – how much is too much?

As policy makers bicker over the budget and increasing the debt ceiling let’s take a look at our nation’s financial condition. In recent years I have begun questioning how much debt is simply too much even for the U.S government… Are you familiar with the term normalcy bias? It is a mental state we often “enter when facing a disaster.” It “causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects,” causing most of us to be inadequately prepared. I suspect to a degree normalcy bias with the economy is at play in clenching this ‘faith based notion’ in the U.S. credit system all together.

What if you only bought American made products?

If you carefully inspect your home plus the stores you shop at you’ll find them loaded with American brand name imports from clothing to Christmas and Easter decorations to electronic components and nearly everything in between right down to G.E light bulbs. This includes many of America’s most darling Wall Street companies from Apple to HP and even Ford and Chevy. ABC News with Diane Sawyer recently reported on this in a series Made in America and their revelations have taken some folks by surprise. Perhaps some of us have been buying our goods with eyes wide shut...

Is America’s Middle Class Doomed?

Did you know that some corporate strategists think hollowing out America’s middle class is not a big deal? America’s middle class is in trouble, although some folks are just now figuring this out it could be a bit too late - about 30 years late as the deed is done. We’re now in the consequence phase. You might say we’re in that stage where those of us who got shafted are beginning to realize that while at the party we slept through all the fun.
