A Commentary On Living In A Country With A Fiat Currency by Mitch Santell
There is absolutely no bigger or better addiction in America than money. Oh, don’t get me started on this. Okay, here I go! My observation of fiat currency is this: Every 7 to 10 years, there is a colossal market re-correction.
This week Trump released his latest budget for 2019-20 fiscal year. It calls for $2.7 trillion in various social spending cuts over the decade, including $872 billion in reductions in Medicare, Social Security, Disability spending; another $327 billion in food stamps, housing support, and Medicaid; a further $200 billion in student loan cuts; and hundreds of billions more in cuts to education, government workers’ pensions, and funds to operate the EPA and other government agencies.
Not surprising, the $2.7 trillion in social program spending cuts will finance spending for the military and defense-related programs like Homeland Security, Border walls, veterans, police, and programs like school vouchers.
Of course, the budget proposal is ‘dead on arrival’ with the US House of Representatives, which must approve all spending bills, according to the US Constitution. But don’t hold your breath. Trump may now have a back door to this Constitutional obstacle and eventually get his way on the budget, at least in part, to fund his military spending plans.
Commentary For Those Who Are Not Easily Offended by Mitch Santell
Living in a country where the media is out of control because it is only controlled by six companies can be very frustrating. (The Telecommunications Act of 1996 shifted America from 53+ media companies down to only six media companies).
What I place here is a rant by Owen Benjamin, one of my favorite stand-up comedians who exited Los Angeles for a simpler life in the country.
First here is a clip from Owen’s Comedy in Los Angeles:
Second, here is Owen Benjamin’s rant over the past 24 hours in regards to Pew-die, Pie, Politics, Pornography, and leaving Los Angeles:
Now for those of you who still have a sense of humor, here is a parody that one of Owen’s subscriber’s animated to look like South Park:
A reminder that boomers:
* Had it better than any generation in history.
* Were raised on home-cooked meals.
* Mom stayed home and gave them attention.
* College was cheap. A fraction of what we pay.
* A degree (in anything) would land you a good job.
* Corporations kept you for decades.
* Stock portfolios and homes increased 4x in value * Retirement was considered a human right.
And in return they…
* presided over the outsourcing of jobs and mass immigration…
* …leading to the underclass’s opiate-drenched collapse
Reflections On Trump’s Current Chess Game by Mitch Santell
Congratulations, you have just witnessed something in America that no other President would have the guts to do. What is it? President Donald J. Trump signed the current budget to keep the U.S. Government open while at the same time declaring a National Emergency. In my view? This is an absolutely brilliant strategy. This is the long game. It will still be a wild ride, but at least the amusement park is also known as America will still be around so that the circus can continue. (I love my country, I don’t take what is happening lightly but I do realize, we have to keep our sense of humor).
The White House confirmed Thursday that President Donald Trump will declare a national emergency in an attempt to bypass Congress and get more funding for his Mexico border wall project.
Trump will also sign off on a congressional bill that would authorize a much smaller amount of wall money than the president had been demanding.
“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action, including a national emergency, to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.
In The I Can’t Believe This Department by Mitch Santell
Usually, when someone is questioned in a public setting, they like to be able to give an answer. For some reason, Kamala Harris is so full of herself, that she can’t even let anyone get a word in edgewise.
The way that Kamala Harris asks and answers questions is sort of like watching Rush Hour with Comedian Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.
Kamala Harris would not be a good choice for America because she has not had enough experience and she seems to have a problem with asking questions. Every time I hear or watch Kamala Harris I cringe.
There is another part of Kamala Harris’s background that bothers me. What is it? Oh, you already know what it is right? Kamala Harris’s affair with San Francisco Mayer Willie Brown who admitted to having an affair with the Senator.
Yes I said yes
Harris got her start in 1994by having an affair with slimy Willie Brown, who was serving as the California Assembly Speaker and then became the mayor of San Fransico. Brown was 60 years old and Harris was 29 when their affair began. Harris was so brazen that she came out publicly as his date at his 60th birthday party, despite his wife of 36 years being in attendance.
Harris slept with Brown for one reason; she used the corrupt San Francisco mayor to launch her rise to power. Daily Caller reports, “As Brown’s time as speaker drew to a close in 1994, he named Harris to the California Medical Assistance Commission, a job that came with a $72,000 annual salary. Brown had previously appointed her to the state Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.”
She “was described by several people at the Capitol as Brown’s girlfriend,” the Los Angeles Times reported at the time. Although that job paid nearly $98,000, Harris’ term was set to expire in five weeks when Brown tapped her for the Medical Assistance Commission slot. That body met only monthly, and the $72,000 position was not considered a full-time job.
