The coup being perpetrated on the US government is going on under our noses in the Senate, and Democrats are, again, rolling over.

The Senate itself is completely anti-democratic, but the rules it has adopted for itself with little fanfare or public knowledge have effectively usurped the democratic process as it was intended by the founders. …


The latest round of stimulus benefits shows just how much is to be gained in any attempt to work with Republicans. The same people who were appointed by Trump to head the SSA and the IRS, and managed to very quickly distribute funds when Trump’s name was on the checks, suddenly couldn’t repeat the process to get desperate Americans their funds. Sadly, it didn’t even matter that the Americans harmed by this are also those most likely to vote for GOP candidates, Social Security and Veteran benefit recipients. …


The stimulus he promised in mid-summer when he was trying to appear “progressive” to court Bernie voters was quite different from the proposal he has forwarded, and he has bundled several deal killers for Republicans and conservaDems in the package that guarantee push back in the Senate, if not both houses. His objective is clearly not getting money into the hands of hurting Americans as quickly as possible, and he appears to be more concerned with political infighting than actually helping those who elected him.

Trump and his misfit army did America a great favor yesterday.

Yesterday’s events at the US Capitol released America from its extended capture in a cartoon reality. America has been held hostage in a cartoon version of itself that resembled a bad remake of Mad Max more than any modern democratic society. The captors were primarily members of the GOP and their donors, but the DNC was complicit in allowing the absurdity of what “freedom” and “liberty” had come to represent.

President-elect Biden was already making noises hinting at “moving forward” and “putting the past behind us” when the culmination…


Bank money and its place in the big picture.

To this point, I have addressed money as defined by our monetary system as a tax credit. The federal government will only accept its own currency in payment of tax obligations as it is those obligations that create the demand for the currency and allow for the government’s management of the money supply. However, the government has not restricted the creation of “money” to itself. In fact, those grocery coupons you clip from the prolific amount of junk mail most of us detest are a form of money. They offer a…


Even as Republican and Democratic leadership double down on attempts to preserve our market-based economy the people can feel an underlying worry that something is fundamentally wrong at the core of it all. The COVID 19 pandemic couldn’t have happened at a worse time for the nation as an inept, to the extent of being clownish, administration lashes out at any progressive thought of providing for people in dire need of a support system that is capable of making a positive impact on their situation.

The entirety of the most powerful government and the wealthiest economic mechanism in the history…


Warren has some great economists at her disposal, much as does Bernie. She just isn’t listening to them at the moment and is falling into the “pay for” trap. I knew she would eventually because that kind of structure is important to her. She’s a true blue policy wonk. In her world of spreadsheets and projections where everything must have a source and a destination, it is only logical to understand how we “pay for” such large spending initiatives as free healthcare at the point of purchase. …


As we begin another Presidential election cycle a lot of attention is bound to be focused on our nation’s fiscal health, but very little of the information disseminated will be accurate, or even true. It seems that our nation’s character has shifted from bold innovator and world leader to fearful and cautious follower of naysayers. “Can do” has been replaced by “can’t afford” in the political narrative, even among leaders of the Democratic party, long assumed to be advocates of federal spending for the public purpose with its roots in FDR’s New Deal.

Nancy Pelosi, the current speaker of the…


The perception of trade damaging our economy is entirely the result of economic ignorance and political propaganda. If business can import goods for less than it can manufacture them the net effect of that is positive as long as consumers are compensated sufficiently to allow them to purchase the cheaper products. It is only when trade is used as a weapon in the continuing war between labor and capital that both end up suffering. …


Pelosi Must Begin Impeachment To Save The Country.

In a perfect world, we would need no laws beyond the Constitution. The founders, realizing the world is far from perfect, gave instructions concerning who is authorized to create maximum limits to the extent our elected officials be allowed to vary from the intent of that Constitution and the punishments for overstepping those. That authority was purposefully withheld from the Executive in their wisdom to avoid a dictatorship that would impose the rule of a majority approval over the purpose of our rights and liberties.

Somewhere, at some time in our history…
