Go Global; Save the Swamp!

Over the years the American Public has had only a few occasions to witness wholesale corruption at the federal level; the occasional Senator, Congressmen, Department Head, Military Personnel or even a President or two.

To some degree, in the age of mass 24/7 media, on one end the Press has made it more difficult to conceal criminal activity however, given the consolidation of this medium’s ownership, fact-finding and truth-telling journalism has given way to the power of sensationalism. Depending on what side of the political fortress you stand, the end of your promising future (and the truth), or escaping a jail cell may only be a matter of a 15 second sound-bite or 140 characters away.

Disappearing Economic Engine Continues

A diverse and productive economy is not only a potent tool for expanding a broad and fertile wage base it is, as we’ve discussed many times, a national security issue.

Congress Fails Again! TIME FOR TERM LIMITS!

Without question, Trump has been setup for failure. Before it gets worse, speaking of Repeal and Replace, even if a “Bill” were to reach his desk he should immediately retract his support of their efforts and go to the American Public with a prime-time address explaining the truth behind what Congress has done.

I’ve had the great privilege of participating in efforts to formulate a functional restructuring of the U.S. Healthcare System and the many of you who’ve read any of my books or essays on the subject know the expanse of the efforts. The fact is there was never a concerted effort (by Congress) to Repeal & Replace Obamacare, the single greatest and catastrophic blow to the U.S. Healthcare System bar none (with Medicaid/Medicare a close second).
