House Democrats Pen Letter Blasting Proposed Federal Retirement Cuts Government Executive Erich Wagner June 15, 2017 More than 100 Democratic members of Congress sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Thursday to oppose the cuts to federal employee retirement programs as outlined in President Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget proposal. Lawmakers, led by Reps. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., and Gerry Connolly, D-Va., described Trump’s budget request as an “assault” on federal workers, retirees and their families, calling the proposed reforms to employee retirement programs “tantamount to a pay cut.” While the Trump budget would give civilian federal employees a 1.9 … Continue reading
New Trump Order Seeks To Tear Down Regulations, Build Up Apprenticeships Western Journalism Jack Davis June 15, 2017 President Donald Trump acted Thursday to demolish a bureaucratic infrastructure that he said needed to be removed to allow America’s companies to create apprenticeships that will provide jobs for millions.

Connecticut, home to great wealth, may be sinking into a fiscal mire Fox News Elizabeth Llorente May 26, 2017 Home to Yale University with its $25-billion endowment, numerous high-flying hedge funds and top-drawer celebrities ensconced in opulent estates worth tens of millions of dollars, Connecticut possesses great wealth and boasts the highest per capita income of any American state. But look a little closer and it’s a fiscal train wreck. The Constitution State is among the worst states when it comes to business costs, economic climate, growth prospects and regulatory burdens. Ground zero for this train wreck is the capital, … Continue reading
Breaking down everything wrong with the Paris Agreement and EXACTLY why the U.S. should leave it.
Winning slowly but surely — imagine if Trump did not have to fight all the little nonsensical roadblocks the Democrats and liberals are so bound and determined to throw up. After eight starved years, we finally have a president that not only is living up to his promises of campaign trail but doing it despite their efforts to stall progress. Kittery, Maine was incorporated in 1647, staking a claim as the “oldest incorporated town in Maine. It sits surrounded by the natural harbor and estuary of the Piscataqua River. During the Revolution, the first vessels of the U.S. Navy were … Continue reading

How refreshing! A balanced budget within 10 years. No more looting our treasury and boning the taxpayers… WHAT A CONCEPT! Of course, the career politicians on both sides can’t have that can they? The UniParty and their sponsors are getting filthy rich over the fleecing of our treasury. What everyone seems to forget is that this is OUR MONEY, not the government’s. The left would have us believe that this would cost the government. Seriously? Again, this is our money. There are hundred if not thousands of bullshit government spending programs that can be cut. We all know it. There … Continue reading
and refusing to allow Trump to Make America Great Again? EXCERPT: “Billionaire investor George Soros has upped what so far has been a losing bet on the U.S. stock market, according to recent filings. The hedge fund manager and active supporter of progressive causes added bearish options plays to his portfolio during the first quarter. His two primary plays — against large-caps via the S&P 500 and small-caps via the Russell 2000 — have a notional, or potential, value of $764.3 billion, according to an analysis from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

and NOT an article from The Onion. EXCERPT: “Now, here in his cramped office, Mr. Corzine is plotting his next and possibly final act: starting a hedge fund. And not just any hedge fund, but one designed to take advantage of the turmoil in the Trump era. Wall Street’s wheel of fortune has spun plenty of comeback stories over the years, from Michael Milken to Henry Blodget. This will be the third spin of the wheel for Mr. Corzine, who won a United States Senate seat after being maneuvered out of Goldman, and who took the reins of MF Global … Continue reading
Democrats, RINOS, and Liberals Have Egg On Their Faces – April Jobs Report, Optimism in Economy NOT Fake News For those who may not have seen Fox Business News Clip, this is GREAT NEWS.

Some days I read news stories and have to pinch myself to make sure I’m still living in reality. Well, here’s today’s message from the “different day, same shit” department: Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson (R) and Colorado Representative Ken Buck (R) have proposed The American Replacement Bill, to import 495,000 foreign workers plus unlimited family members, “to replace Americans who cannot work because of opioid addiction”, and who also dropped out of the workforce during the last two recessions. Johnson and Buck blame this “plague” of “social pathologies” on government policies. Their solution: Import more foreign workers. The legislation is … Continue reading

This probably needs to be chalked right up at the top with the “Liberal Attitude” currently turning the heads of millennials. What a wake up call to millennials – what you hear and trend about can be seriously dangerous to your health and wallet. Reality sucks when you are the ones being scammed or harmed. ZeroHedge April 28, 2017 What was set to be the opening weekend of trust-fund millennial debauchery in the Bahamas has turned into nothing short of Lord of the Flies. The Fyre Festival – organized by Ja Rule and some guy who’s scammed … Continue reading
pale in comparison with the Barky Obama-Cankles Clinton scandals. Before you read the full article, you’d best be sitting down. That no one has been indicted yet is a travesty and a blatant example that the US Government is totally corrupt. EXCERPT: “I. The U.S. Government Failed To Appoint An Inspector General For Five Years Hillary Clinton was appointed to her position as Secretary of State on January 21, 2009, serving until February 1, 2013. From January 16, 2008 to September 30, 2013, the Obama administration had failed to appoint an Inspector General for the Department of State (DS). This … Continue reading
It isn’t often we can talk about EPA helping a community rather than finding ways to stymie and wrap them up in regulations and rules. BUT here is one that is worth a great deal toward moving unemployed and young people forward into an industry that really needs to be considered. How many times have we heard of disasters where hazmat cleanup and workers were involved? Certainly more every day as places across the country meet different scenarios. Where do these workers come from? How do they get trained? Is it an industry that could provide good paying jobs … Continue reading
