These are the numbers you didn’t want to face. When you see the real status of our propped up economy, it seems we may need some strong medicine and rather stern rehabilitation, to get back to Reagan-esque economic health. Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) produces graphic charts of what would overwise be glazey-eyed mountains of numbers which most of us would not fully appreciate. Social media is now disseminating a montage of 9 very telli […]
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Rand Paul reintroduced his Federal Reserve Transparency Act, widely known as the “Audit the Fed” bill, to prevent the Federal Reserve from concealing vital information on its operations from Congress. Eight cosponsors joined Senator Paul on the legislation.
Representative Thomas Massie (KY-4) has introduced companion legislation, H.R. 24, in the U.S. House.
Donald Trump’s phone conversation with the president of Taiwan was a diplomatic blunder. According to diplomats. They say it upsets the One China Policy. That’s the policy where everybody pretends Mainland China exits and Taiwan doesn’t. The U.S. sold the nonexistent regime $1.83 billion in weapons last year. And China is Taiwan’s biggest trading partner. One China Policy
Drain the Swamp!
by John Stossel
President-elect Trump says he’s uniquely qualified to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C. He can do it, he said at one debate, because as a businessman, he understands American cronyism. “With Hillary Clinton, I said, ‘Be at my wedding,’ and she came to my wedding. You know why? She had no choice because I gave.”
He said that’s why he gives money to politicians from both parties. “When they call, I give. And when I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me!”
That’s crony capitalism. Ideally, laws are applied equally; no one gets a special break because he gives money. But today’s complex government allows the politically connected to corrupt … most everything.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today announced the formation of a task force to perform a comprehensive review of occupational licensing in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Occupational Licensing Task Force will provide recommendations to the governor to remove unnecessary or burdensome regulations that are a barrier to potential workers.
“Occupational licensing often can be overly burdensome, which can hinder a person from earning a living and providing for their family,” said Fallin. “These unnecessary or outdated barriers make it harder for many Oklahomans, particularly those who may not have completed a formal education as well as some minorities. This can help them to obtain jobs and build new businesses that create jobs.”
The Oklahoma Department of Labor will provide administrative support for the task force, including necessary personnel.
The year hasn’t been kind to the global elite. Curiously, that made many Americans ashamed of their country. They’re resorting to violence because they don’t accept Tuesday’s election results. The same election they feared Donald Trump wouldn’t honor if the results were reversed. To their credit, President Obama and Hillary Clinton gracefully accepted the voter mandate. Others, however, are embarrassed because people are

Forbes defines a health insurance death spiral as “adverse selection” which happens when only high risk people buy insurance: If only people on their death beds buy life insurance, the insurance company would quickly go out of business. Equally, if only sick people buy health insurance, the math will not work… To reduce the risk of
During last night’s presidential debate, Chris Wallace asked about Trump’s recent accusation that the election is “rigged.” Clinton responded:
So that is not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. And that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election.
“Now, for those of you who are younger than 25, you might not remember the election of 2000 and what happened here in Florida,” [Gore] said, addressing students from Miami-Dade College, among others in attendance. “For those of you older than 25, I heard you murmuring just now.”
Soon, a chant rang out: “You won!”
In summary, I recommend the following votes on state questions on the ballot for the general election in November 2016:
SQ776 Yes, SQ 777 No, SQ 779 No, SQ 780 Yes, SQ 781 No, SQ 790 Yes, SQ 792 Yes. Read more to find out why.
I will be adding additional reference links on state questions for a few days — so please check back if this is of interest to you! Next up some thoughts on judicial retentions…
Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf resigned on Wednesday and Elizabeth Warren finally got the scalp she wanted. Bank employees opened about two million unauthorized customer accounts on Chairman Stumpf’s watch. The scam led to bonuses for the employees and extra fees and overdraft charges for the unsuspecting customers. Stumpf will get no severance package and he has forfeited $41 million in
