Tax Reform: Sacred Corporate Cow!

There are far too many false-truths surrounding the in-progress Tax Reform discussion each with the potential of further elevating the Corporate Juggernaut beyond the sacred cow status it presently holds, perhaps on to the omniscient deity domain.

Skinny’s Dead; Scheming Very Much Alive!

While Republican Senators John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine stand, along with the entire Democratic Party, as front-line stewards of congestive failure, the real loss is measured in the distance between promises made and promises kept, the ideals of representative democracy and elected officials reverence for it.

It has long been my opinion and recommendation that the Repeal & Replace concept should have been sidelined until a roll-out of a Complete Replacement Plan was published. The critical issue to be observed here is this: The Senate couldn’t muster the 51 votes from either Party to pass the so-called “Skinny” Bill which further confirms the severity of the underlying problem.

Senator McCain: The Pagan Legate!

The Senate’s reverent response to Senator McCain’s return, ostensibly to cast his vote on the latest iteration of this forums attempt to keep its promise to the electorate (which I expect McCain will ultimately oppose), is puzzling.

How, with absolutely no legislative success of worthy mention, with no single (original) policy missive of merit and a history of ceremonial contradiction like no other, has this Senator managed to amass a standing commanding such regard?

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).

China: The Auction of Self-Preservation!

Not much tea-leave reading required to predict where this is headed. The long-standing lure of hegemony has always proven to be a fast-track tool for conflict; profits are always enticing as is the ease with which self-preservation is auctioned-off in the process.

The West financed the Bolsheviks which gave us Stalin, their “play” over Germany gave us Hitler, Khmer Rouge, a post-Pahlavi Radical Theocracy in Iran along with an entire region in various states of chaos. China is not, on its own, an economic or military powerhouse as some might think however, it has proven itself to be a quick-study pirating technology, from its western accomplices. That has allowed it to apply technological advances with relative ease and without the time and costs of development. You have several Presidents and Senators to thank for projecting this predictable and meddlesome form of failure.
