U.S Debt – how much is too much?

As policy makers bicker over the budget and increasing the debt ceiling let’s take a look at our nation’s financial condition. In recent years I have begun questioning how much debt is simply too much even for the U.S government… Are you familiar with the term normalcy bias? It is a mental state we often “enter when facing a disaster.” It “causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects,” causing most of us to be inadequately prepared. I suspect to a degree normalcy bias with the economy is at play in clenching this ‘faith based notion’ in the U.S. credit system all together.

What if you only bought American made products?

If you carefully inspect your home plus the stores you shop at you’ll find them loaded with American brand name imports from clothing to Christmas and Easter decorations to electronic components and nearly everything in between right down to G.E light bulbs. This includes many of America’s most darling Wall Street companies from Apple to HP and even Ford and Chevy. ABC News with Diane Sawyer recently reported on this in a series Made in America and their revelations have taken some folks by surprise. Perhaps some of us have been buying our goods with eyes wide shut...

Endless Wars and Debts and Taxes to Pay for Them

As Congress members return this week from recess the battle over the budget will soon begin. Obama wants to raise taxes on the wealthy by repealing the Bush era tax cuts and close some tax loopholes. The GOP refuses to consider any tax revenue increases at all. But given our dire budget situation shouldn’t everyone and every corporation be paying their fair share for the good of the nation? Following the same rationale of ‘support our troops’, what is our patriotic duties with respect to our nation’s financial well-being?

Comparing the Obama – Ryan Budget Proposals

When lawmakers talk of reducing the deficit they are not talking about the nation’s debt. Neither plan balances the budget…Obama proposes a combination approach in budget cuts, tax increases, and closing tax loopholes and talks of sharing the sacrifice among society. Ryan proposes making the Bush era tax cuts, extended by Obama, permanent plus reducing Fed revenue even more by cutting the top tax rate for individuals and corporations and focuses strictly on budget cuts to achieve his projections. The cuts he proposes shift the burden to seniors and other sectors of society impacted by the cuts…In relation to the debt neither plan puts the U.S on a more sustainable path...

U.S Budget Woes – Getting a grip on a hungry Beast

As the airways heat up over the budget debates with calls of cutting trillions and billions getting a mental grasps of the enormity of the problem can be challenging. Comprehending billions is difficult enough let alone trillions. I find it helpful putting this into context by thinking of it this way; it takes 1000 billion to make up a trillion. The annual spending budget deficit, which adds to the nation’s accumulating debt, is estimated to be $1.5 trillion for this year. That’s $1500 billion. The nation’s debt is currently $14.2 trillion. That’s $14,200 billion. This is before discussing interest on that debt.

Is America’s Middle Class Doomed?

Did you know that some corporate strategists think hollowing out America’s middle class is not a big deal? America’s middle class is in trouble, although some folks are just now figuring this out it could be a bit too late - about 30 years late as the deed is done. We’re now in the consequence phase. You might say we’re in that stage where those of us who got shafted are beginning to realize that while at the party we slept through all the fun.

A Voice For Freedom and Honesty Is Silenced. Good-by To Keith Olbermann

How is it that the FCC approved the merger between NBC and Comcast in spite of anti-trust laws that are still supposed to be in force but are being ignored by Obama's (in)Justice Department? What happened to the rule of law? As usual, the corporations and Elites have no need to follow the law and are bound and determined to gain full control of every bit of news that flows through the Mainstream News Media. It appears that American Fascists have gained another advantage; there's not much question in my mind that the Comcast/NBC merger is nothing more than another nail in the coffin of honest reporting and free speech.
