Trump vs Obama: Confidence

Capture a a a a a [pjawdfj'pjp

We’ve talked a few times about how much Trump’s election has inspired economic confidence, but we haven’t gone into the depths of how remarkable that really is. Obama spent eight years fighting for a better economy, and his results were lukewarm at best. While there are many flaws one could mention in his policies, the … Continue reading “Trump vs Obama: Confidence”

How Trump’s “Border Tax” will Reshape the Global Economy

Capture a a a a[ihasasj]aas

Of all of incoming President Donald Trump’s fiscal policies, none likely will have as much impact as his (and Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s) proposed corporate border tax. Very simply, the border tax will be a 20 percent tax on imports and a 12 percent subsidy for income earned from exports. In effect, … Continue reading “How Trump’s “Border Tax” will Reshape the Global Economy”

Top Left-Wing Companies Pushing Dangerous Narratives

Capture a a a a[pdfio0[ashi

Liberals are completely confident that they are smarter than their political opposition, and a major factor in that notion is that they can look to overwhelmingly successful figures who support the same notions. Liberals often lack the wherewithal to identify the less obvious machinations behind many of these public stances, and they firmly believe that … Continue reading “Top Left-Wing Companies Pushing Dangerous Narratives”

How Adding 20 Million More Insured Americans Hurt

Capture a a a a[kope[fioahf[qw

The Golden Obama Legacy added 20 million new Americans to health insurance. Because of this, Obamacare is an obvious and sweeping success, and if it is repealed, those 20 million Americans will no longer be insured. That’s what you’re being told almost incessantly. It’s also a gross perversion of the truth. Technically speaking, there are … Continue reading “How Adding 20 Million More Insured Americans Hurt”

Forget Fake News. Fake Science Is on the Rise

Tired girl is wearing glasses and fake mustaches over science background with formulas

We’ve talked about how worshipping science as a deity is a dangerous mindset, and we’ve covered how political agendas have hurt the integrity of science, which at its core is still a useful approach to problem solving. Continuing those discussions, it’s time to address the rising trend of absolutely false science. Even worse than fake … Continue reading “Forget Fake News. Fake Science Is on the Rise”

Best Hits of Progressive Self-Contradiction

capture-a-a-a-apasdojpoj

Liberals have their fair share of problems, but in the last year their voice has been overwhelmingly drowned by the rising progressives. Their great rallying cry is to call all dissent an equal combination of immoral judgment and overt stupidity. As they hail their new god, science, they take a completely uncompromising stance on every … Continue reading “Best Hits of Progressive Self-Contradiction”

The Public Pension Ticking Time Bomb

pension pension or retirement concept with word on business office folder index

An unpleasant truth may be coming to light for municipal governments of many of America’s largest cities, as fiscal managers realize that their Defined Benefit Pension Plans (DBPPs) are essentially large Ponzi schemes that have been allowed to fool workers into believing their retirement benefits are fully funded. But in many cases, these plans are … Continue reading “The Public Pension Ticking Time Bomb”

The Real Cost of Climate Change

Tesla: The Pinnacle of the Left’s Disastrous Economic Policies

Many praise Elon Musk as the greatest innovator of an age. Tesla Motors is redefining the auto industry and making the world a better place. That’s the progressive narrative, at least. In reality, Musk had a single success when he launched PayPal before he figured out one of the most exploitable methodologies for making money … Continue reading “Tesla: The Pinnacle of the Left’s Disastrous Economic Policies”

In another inevitable comparison between Trump and Obama, it is left to wonder if Trump will pursue change through the same methodology that became the standard for the Obama administration.

During his time in office, President Barack Obama has loved to crow about many things, but one of his boilerplate recitations is how many jobs have been created under his administration.
