Sanctuary of Violence

Once again, the weakness of the designated Sanctuary-Status proves itself as weak a protectorate as those that believe that by eliminating guns you eliminate violence. This day’s tragedy is once again emblazoned with the same idiosyncratic metaphors to cover for the lies we keep telling ourselves or the false messaging that comes from the menagerie of elected officials who are as much a part of the problem as the lost soul who pulls the trigger. What have we done to these Children? Really? This Nation is going to look to the mindless labyrinth of government for relief, for composing a meaningful solution? The very camp of fools who can’t balance something as simple as a budget? The very same group who can’t seem to grasp the concept of “representative” and yes, the very same group that can’t seem to understand that as a mechanism for protecting the richness of this Nation’s promise you must never permit Illegal Immigration, you must never provide Sanctuary for those who break, sacrifice or dismember the very blessing they claim to be the allure, the definite and absolute force that compels people to come to this Country.

Subservient State; Democracy Thrives

Democracies thrive when the State is subservient to the People; once the State’s first choice is to save itself you know it has failed. The process requires an enduring cast of characters and there have been many colorful characters over the decades wearing at the core of this Nation’s structural order however let’s consider, for now, the most prominent, our chief caricatures, the preeminent fixtures of the statists, the most recognizable being none other than John McCain and, more and more frequently, the spit-bucket man himself, California’s Massachusetts-born carpet bagger, Adam Schiff. The character of a People is evidenced by the actions of its Government, the actions by those who hold the Peoples trust; this is a most humbling measure!

A Perspective on Universal Basic Income (UBI)

The concept of Universal Basic Income (UBI) has been around for decades. Recently, an article appeared (see link below) teasing the curiosity and interest of several folks who asked me to comment. The great, generally, challenge with the UBI concept is that it requires alignment in an either/or paradigm. Each with their own respective questions, do you maintain a structurally sound economic/banking policy, or do you embark on a complete departure course from them?

Tax Reform Update – Will Obamacare Individual Mandate Save Tax Reform?

Thinking in metaphorical terms consider the following:

Acts of Desperation are quick to dissolve one’s focus on higher purpose.

Merging Healthcare Reform with Tax Reform is, without a doubt, an act of desperation and for two good reasons:

  1. If Congress is unwilling to completely abandon the concept of Government Funded Healthcare in its entirety, and do so by restoring a functional Market-based architecture, then how does one expect that by the simple act of removing the funding mechanism for a failed system, which still remains, somehow forces what they’ve already failed to or have been unwilling to do will suddenly occur?

Trump/Ryan Tax Plan – Over Selling the Under Performing!

Although the tax reform agenda appears to be inching forward and will likely see various changes aimed at luring opposition into the fold, here’s a brief summary of what we do know:

If the chief goal is to restart the domestic economic engine, I’ve yet to find evidence of a single proposed component that will actually accomplish this goal. For example: How will an average proposed tax saving (per household) of $1,800 reverse the economic misfortunes of a family already living paycheck to paycheck? How does gifting tax-relief to Multi-National Corps, already only paying an average rate of 18.6 percent and already freed by Trade Policy to export wealth away from the domestic environs, going to obligate them to change their course away from the death spiral that is Globalism and return production and development back to the U.S.?
