Democrats v Trump – The Mexican Standoff

January 10, 2019

The reaction from the Democrats and the mainstream media against Trump is really absurd. VOX wrote that he should not even be allowed to address the nation. They wrote: “After watching President Trump’s primetime immigration speech Tuesday, my overwhelming impression was this: Why, oh why, did anyone think it was a good idea to air […]

Government Closure & Lack of Advice to Trump

January 5, 2019

  President Donald Trump on Friday said he has considered using emergency powers to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The press has been saying that he could declare a national emergency to redirect money from the Defense Department or other sources to fund the wall.

Bureaucrats & their Lack of Common Sense that is Probably a Required Qualification

January 2, 2019

The story being used against Trump and his travel-ban against the four Muslim countries concerns the sad story of the terminally ill 2-year-old boy, whose Yemeni mother had to sue the State Department to get a visa to join him in a California hospital.

Why Did the USA Invade Iraq?

August 10, 2018

  QUESTION: I recently watched the movie Shock & Awe on the Iraq War.

Did Tariffs Cause Great Depression?

July 9, 2018

The causes of the Great Depression have been debated for decades. The problem with all of the analysis is this same attempt to reduce the cause to a single event.

The Cost of Labor is What Drives the Move to Robots

June 13, 2018

QUESTION:  Hi Marty, Two questions: 1. When the Canadians said they never look at “those things,” what “things” are they talking about? 2. I always like lowering taxes, if the remaining revenue will be spent wisely. (In our dreams). But as a lawyer in the Austin area, I can assure you that manufacturing by some […]

Supply v Demand-Side Economic & What is Never Discussed

June 12, 2018

COMMENT: Usury, first the Fed starves we savers for return for 18 years with their zero percent interest rates and gave us two giant stock market crashes in that intervening period.
