The inauguration speech

Yeah, so I watched it and was surprised at how sharp it actually turned out to be.  As I listened, I made a few notes to myself as he went along for 16 minutes at a measured pace and tone.  One thing to note, this is not the entire speech, I quoted the portions that I found comment worthy. For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government

Future of American economics

There is an interesting thing happening right now in the United States. We literally are a people divided between this group or that group. Labels are flying around like birds on a clear day; liberals, conservatives, moderates, far-right, far-left, etc. This hasn’t developed overnight, rather, it’s been building for decades as the grand plan of the neoclassical economists played out through multiple administrations starting in the 1960’s.

Heartburn over next President

Inspired by In which I reluctantly “choose” Hillary by The Monster in Your Closet There are some topics of discussion that will always get people fired up, one of them being politics. Reading the personal view from one such writer that I’ve been following for a while now, I felt it was about time for me to get out a subjective and honest post about my internal points of view and why I am or
