  The old folk tune written by Pete Seeger mimics the Bible* and thus acknowledges the reality gained through millennia of man’s experience on planet Earth. Here is the gist of that song: “To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, turn, turn) And a time to every purpose, under...
  I don’t have all the answers, but no one human does. So here’s the plan: Allow unlimited immigration to the United States with the caveat that all males and females immediately enlist in the military, branch of their choice, as a price for admission. Once they serve a four year contract, which...

Steve MacIntyre, Yamail: A “Divergence” Problem” The original IPCC “hockey stick” graph was the centerpiece of Michael Mann’s “proof” that mankind was responsible for global warming—research that was discredited because it relied on incorrect statistics. Before then, Mann’s information was used many times and by many scientists in other research. When correct data was applied, the hockey stick disappears.
               No matter how much proof is offered that mankind has had minimal or no impact on global temperature, there are those who would still rather believe gross distortions and lies based on science fraud than the truth, wrote environmental scientist Dr. Michael S. Coffman in the Fall...
  Rather than write about the economy, or the still-rising stock market, or the financial policies of soon-to-be President Mike Pence, I want to talk about an important family-level financial planning topic: Debt.  Imagine that you want to buy a slick new car, or a new house, or toy.

But before I bring you the silver lining, here’s the problem: Since 2010, which is after we started to recover from the financial crisis, our GDP has only averaged 2% growth. If you compare...
  Despite the unimpressive economy and the drama engulfing the political world, the stock market is remarkably calm. But that’s nothing new. Since the Financial Crisis, the markets have shrugged off a weak economy, the Fiscal Cliff, the Sequester, a government shutdown, multiple crises in Europe,...
  When most of us are in polite circles we mind our Ps and Qs. When the polite company leaves, or when surrounded by allies one can trust, the truth rears its sometimes ugly head. Not so with Donald Trump. When he speaks, the left is overjoyed because, as was said by his supporters during the...
  Remember all the bluster from Trump that China was a currency manipulator, and they were “raping our country?” He pledged to be tough on China to bring back good paying manufacturing jobs to America. Well, you can forget about all that… Just a few months into his presidency, Trump is selling out...
  There are two main parts to Karl Marx’s theory about evaluation of capitalism. One is that corporations will continuously exploit their workers and consumers in order to make an exorbitant profit. And two, that the workers will eventually rise up - tired of constant manipulation - and take...
  The stock market is up approximately 10 percent since the election (S&P 500). Part of the reason for the strong market was optimism over the Republican controlled government and the end of gridlock. However, based on the health care bill that couldn’t even get through the House, that might be...
