It Doesn't Always Stay in Vegas

As I wait in breathless anticipation for the announcement to be made by Barack Obama about his new illegal immigration policy, I can't help be amused at the irony of the chosen venue, Las Vegas. Not because he used Vegas in 2013 to outline his blueprint for immigration legislation with no follow through, nor because of his infamous comment: "you don't blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you are trying to save for college." I'll even cut him some slack when he chastised corporate America for holding conferences in Vegas in bad economic times. What strikes me most is that Las Vegas is a city of games.  There is action to be had for both the high and the low roller.  To win, however, you must play and play well, exhibiting honed skills. Obama comes to Vegas playing for some of the highest stakes in the country, and maybe the world, but unfortunately for him - and us - he comes to Vegas without those gaming skills honed. [more...]

The Amnesty Debacle

President Obama utilizing an executive order to pass immigration reform - and in so doing, providing amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrants - is a ploy, which is done for no other purpose than to secure votes for the Democratic Party, and is in fact an illegal amnesty and violates the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers. Unfortunately, the Republican Party is not devoid of guilt in this matter. It appears neither side understands this is not a debate about politics or social justice, but rather a debacle for legal American citizens. The two sides are playing a game of chess to court the vote of the Hispanic community. [more...]

Palestinian Bloodlust Unleashed

Two Palestinian thugs, armed with cleavers, knives and a gun, invaded an orthodox synagogue in West Jerusalem early Tuesday during morning prayers, and proceeded to murder four Jewish worshippers in cold blood. At least a dozen others were wounded. Three of the murder victims were American citizens. The fourth was a British citizen. Three of the victims were also rabbis. Israeli police, arriving at the scene of the horrific massacre and exchanging gunfire with the Palestinians as they tried to escape, shot the murderers to death. But the horrible images of the slain and wounded worshippers with blood everywhere, drenching holy books, prayer shawls and walls of the synagogue, will live on for a very long time.

Big Companies are Making Big Deals Again

Recent financial woes reshaped the U.S. economy, but big companies are making big deals again, especially in health care, technology and the media industry.  Monday was a tipping point following the acquisition between two big pharmaceutical companies and then with another multi-billion dollar takeover between two oil field service companies. It's the biggest year on the books since 2000. The conditions are ideal, with borrowing costs low and share prices rising, and because deals don't happen unless people are feeling good, it seems that corporate leaders are optimistic with the times, with foresight on growth.

November's "Down Under" Theft of Your Bank Account

On November 16, the world of banking and money was officially flipped upside down because of actions taken by the G-20 nations meeting "down under" in Brisbane, Australia. People deposit their money in banks for safety. But on November 16, this gathering of 35 national leaders turned your bank into one of the most unsafe places to put your money. Without warning, these G-20 leaders agreed that the money in your bank account can be seized to pay bank debts. And some of these leaders - especially President Barack Obama - have already begun imposing billions of dollars in regulatory penalties on banks to squeeze money out of them to grow their governments.

More Students Say #ThanksMichelleObama

Many students are targeting their anger at First Lady Michelle Obama who championed the effort to create more "healthy" school lunches. "Mr. Speaker, the Federal food police now control what American children are permitted to eat in public schools," the First Lady has said. "We just can't leave it up to the parents," U.S. Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) said in a recent speech on the House floor. See some of the photographs taken by students of questionable lunches in this program... [more...]
