Corporate America Hedging Bets on the Border

In Nogales, New Mexico, which is on the border of the United States and Mexico, corporate America is hedging its bets and its bottom line by playing both sides of the fence that will never be built. While the government of the United States is scurrying around every way that they can to deal […]

Senate Committee: Big Oil Needs To Ante Up

Could Washington actually be serious about reducing our dependence on foreign oil? In a move that seems to signal as much, the Senate Finance Committee moved forward with a bill that would impose 29 billion dollars in new taxes on the U.S. oil industry. The bill is designed to funnel money into alternative energy exploration […]

Who is Fixing the Books at Consumer Price Index?

I know that I am not alone in knowing that the cost of everything has skyrocketed the last year or so. Buying a grinder and a soda for lunch is up at the local pizza place and so is the cost of buying a burger at Wendy’ s. Those costs increases are directly […]

Bush Proves Again How Much He Hates “Regular Folks”

Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth (that you can later conveniently turn into your college coke spoon) means you don’t really know what it’s like for the rest of us-you know, the people who actually have to work for a living.

Anybody Seen My Yacht?

The rich are different than you and me. Bill Gates once bragged the IRS needed two computers to process his taxes and argued that the city of Redmond, WA should value his Taj Mahal of a home completely worthless because it’s so big and personally customized no one would ever want to buy the place.

The State Of The Economy: Perception Or Reality?

Well the tenuous state of the economy just elbowed its way back into the spotlight amidst the ogling over record highs in the stock exchanges. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew by a paltry .6 percent during the first quarter of 2007… less than half of the estimate. If this slow growth were to persist throughout […]

The End of Big Oil and the Middle East Strangle

I’ve heard it said that the very last stage coach company in the world built the best damn coach around but the end of the horse and stage coach was inevitable with the invention of the combustion engine. Isn’t it ironic that the hay that once fed horses to pull that same stage coach […]

Perfect Storm: A Rising Tide But The Boats Won’t Float

I’ve always been fascinated with society, psychology, and the human condition&he llip;especia lly from the perspective of what the future may hold. Don’t misinterpret that to mean that I think I can predict the future; rather I try to predict how the state of thought&hell ip;what people believe, what they are saying, and how they […]

Is the Bush conspiracy proven at the pump?

Given the fact that raising the minimum wage to a decent level could break the economy of America according to President Bush I think that the prices at the pump are going to pretty much bury the American people for the good graces of our President. I was talking to a good friend of mine […]
