Why the Trump Economy is Doomed…

…the Everything Bubble and Everything Collapsing There has been a lot of talking going around about the “everything bubble” and everything collapsing.  What exactly does that mean?  What it means is we are most likely experiencing a bubble in several sectors of the economy.  We’ve had real estate bubbles before and stock bubbles before, but…

The Yellow Jacket Revolution

From a half a world away I’m trying to understand and explain the yellow jacket revolution in a context that is relatable to most Americans.  As they riot in Paris, and now across Europe,  the protesters wear yellow because it is highly visible and meant to be seen (or demands to be seen).  They also…

Drama Free Obama

To everyone who hasn’t read my previous posts, I recently suggested that former President Obama should be nominated for the Speaker of the House position. That’s possible. A non-member can constitutionally be elected to that position.  He still has 2 years he can constitutionally serve as president if called up through presidential line of succession.…

Melania’s Apathy Towards Immigrants

  By Chris Madsen There’s a reason I have been very critical of Melania Trump.  It’s not just because of her connection to Donald Trump.

Unless the current Congress decides on a different day and…

Who Should Be Speaker Of The House?

By Chris Madsen Honestly, the best answer I can give is it should be Nancy Pelosi.  She has the seniority and the experience needed.  However, with that said maybe someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with youth, ambition, and more progressive ideas on her side can get an office near Nancy with some on the job training…

Melania Trump: Mole of the Century?

By Chris Madsen I can’t help but wonder how much of Melania’s life was scripted, staged, or set up.  With her father having been a member of the Communist party, it really makes me wonder what kind of culture she grew up in her home?  Was she groomed from a child to be willing to…

Code Orange On The Roaring Teens

By Chris Madsen It seems like all the dominos have been set.  Let’s just hope no one in the world has a hiccup ever, ever again. I’m pretty sure Putin picked Trump because he knew if anyone could run an entire organization/country into the ground it would be Trump (he has experience).  The Trump Tax…

Canada: Gentle Giant of the West

By Chris Madsen So with the world becoming much more smaller with technological advances.  I can’t help wonder what is Canada’s role is this strange new world political situation we are in? Canada is strategically located across the North pole from much of Russia.   The values and political beliefs of the Canadians seem to…
