United States Economy Headed For Meltdown

  Within the next six months the United States economy will suffer what economists call a “reset” and I call “meltdown.”  I really debated writing this piece because I have very little empirical evidence to support this conclusion and I urge you NOT to use my advice to alter your investment strategies.  However, during 2000…

Watch Democratic Congressman Have On Air Melt-Down

Even I find Sean Hannity a little over the top sometime, but he had an interchange that led to a complete melt-down by Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota.  Evidently used to the pandering, myopic and supportive press, Mr. Ellison virtually foamed at the mouth by a montage put together by Fox that simply contrasted two speeches given by…

Journalism As Profession Dies With Contrasting Coverage Of Bush, Obama Inaugurations

  Profusely thanking MSNBC for their “help” during President Obama’s first term in office, senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett’s remarks killed a little part of me.  A news agency should not be “thanked” for helping the partisan antics of either party, its sole job is to report the news.  Reporting the news is a job at…
