Unaccountability as Political Strategy and Foreign Policy
It's called "passing" or "avoiding" the buck. This can come only from those who are so adept at skating or slacking and avoiding work, while pretending to actually be producing something, and are in fact avoiding being accountable for their actions.
I point this out during this, the week of the 60th anniversary of George Orwell's famed book, "1984."
Although Orwell did not coin the term… Continue

In a highly industrialized and rapidly technical advancing nation Recessions end when price of energy is significantly reduced. Not when taxes and/or government spending are increased. You need but correlate

Supporter of the Fair Tax need to be cognizant of a couple of huge factors that will derail the movement in a heartbeat.
First as pointed out my me and other economist the growth of the monetary base to unprecedented proportions means high inflation, maybe even hyper inflation of 50% or more per year, and massive economic and social disruption.
Here is a link to the WSJ article by Arthur… Continue

The Supreme Court just approved King OBAMA’S re-engineering of U.S. Bankruptcy law.
For the last 238 years we had a fair and just set of rules that governed bankruptcy proceedings. A secured Bond holder which is defined as the investor who had loaned money secured by the assets of the borrower (in this case Chrysler) would be first in line in a bankruptcy. This is based on property rights, the person with the most rights based on property would be the most secured. The second in line… Continue

Much to my surprise the Chippewa Valley lost their most vocal and public supporter of the FairTax this week. It has come to my attention that the local radio station carrying Neal Boortz has cut the Boortz show from the lineup. To me this was devastating news. Mr. Boortz almost single handily drew me into the talk radio format. Beyond that if it were not for Boortz I would have no idea about the FairTax and its merits. He has been replaced with the Glen Beck show. Are you kidding me? Glen Beck… Continue

It seems that every move that you, our representative government, are making is adverse to our nation’s common interests. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I might think that our enemies and the global elite have tremendous influence in our own government and in mainstream media with the goal of taking away our individual rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness…

Revolution: A sudden or momentous change. An industrial "revolution" a technology "revolution" "revolution" in manufacturing, automated assembly lines, "revolutionary" thought as in Galileo, Newton, Einstein, and the Wright Brothers.
Revolution: Any social or political transformation, as an example, the "American Republics Founding Father's revolutionary idea" of a limited government under a "constitutional compact" guaranteeing basic unalienable rights, rights forbidden by a "bill… Continue

Rest in Peace.
We are gathered here today to say farewell to a loyal friend.
He was a beacon of wisdom who understood the importance of self reliance. He stood for the hard fought principles of Liberty and freedom and the reason and moral judgment they afford us, without the intrusion of a centralized democracy.
He was a symbol of individual accomplishment that was a proud beacon throughout the world, and the rewards that it secured to those who worked hard to… Continue

Answer to the Opponent of the Fair Tax
Question: 1. If you are going to do away with the IRS, who will collect the tax. (It will still be the IRS, we’ll just give them a sweet sounding name.)
Answer: The states will collect the tax and will receive a quarter of a percent from each transaction to perform this… Continue

A very small number of Americans have the economic power to force the Government to correct its course. We are being steered down a path to a socialist state, if not a fascist state. This is being done under the guise of “an economic disaster” We have in the last six months witnessed the nationalization of banks, insurance companies, manufacturing, healthcare, etc., all in the name of stabilizing the economy. We have in that same six months created more debt than… Continue

“Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society”
Taxes can be assessed at a reasonable rate and serve some very fundamental and necessary purposes; or they can be expanded to a very high rate depending on how much you want from your government. Any reasonable person will agree that some basic societal needs require some form of taxation. The question of “basic” and “need” will always vary depending on who you ask. So, the question then needs to be asked? What is the… Continue

Government ineptness in tax policy and the effects on production while complicit doesn't excuse GM for it failing. GM's failing is a result of not just taxes punishing production that chase jobs out of America, but a chain of choices and compromises with an equally complicit union.
Unions can not vote them self's more value for work performed. Only a free market can ultimately determine wage, artificial constructs forced on a companies create inefficiencies in the market. Eventually… Continue
