Video: Why Trump Supporters Abandon Him

Our friend Chris Madsen alerted us to this very powerful video from NowThisPolitics. It offers quick statements from former Trump supporters who now oppose him. All of them voted for the man because he promised to bring jobs back to America. What they soon discovered was that the only job he really cared for was…

America needs Entrepreneurs

It makes me wonder if in combating the billion dollar scale economy if we don’t need more entrepreneurs to do things better and treat the workers and independent contractors better.  Like a Lyft or Uber that charges a $1 or $2 flat fee and the rest of the fare goes to the drivers.  People may…

MAGA: 3/5ths Compromise

Senate Republicans are absolutely dumbfounded at the radical Democratic idea floating around that all people in this country should be allowed to vote, without voter suppression, or even without extensive gerrymandering.   This led to lots of discussion going on behind closed doors on Capitol Hill.  Topics ranged from how if we let more black…

Basic Allowance for Living (BAL)

I was just thinking that the standard tax deduction should be a Basic Allowance for Living (BAL). A full time minimum wage could also be set at that Basic Allowance for Living at the federal level.  States or cities could still choose a higher BAL if they feel it necessary based on the local economy.…

Exploited America

The Republican Party is making no efforts anymore to even disguise the fact they only work for the 1% and anyone with enough money to lobby (*cough, cough, BRIBE) them.  So in my mind it really begs the question of why do people who aren’t in the 1% still vote in a way that is…
