Corporate Tax Reform Should Benefit Domestic Companies

As tax reform becomes a major focus in Washington, Congress faces a unique opportunity to fix a situation that has long favored multinational corporations at the expense of U.S. companies. Doing so could level the playing field for American companies while also delivering an extra $1 trillion in tax revenue over the next decade. Currently, domestic American corporations are required to pay U.S. taxes on all of their worldwide income. In a rather unfair contrast, however, multinational firms are only required to pay taxes on foreign income after their profits are brought into the United States. Unfortunately, taxation on “foreign” profits can be avoided for decades because large companies can still use the money without appearing to return it to the U.S. [more...]

The Business Toll of Taking a Knee

A once great institution is literally in the process of destroying itself. For the longest time the National Football League was the top drawing sport on television. Now it looks as though it is willingly abdicating its ratings throne. In the season just prior to the current one, 34 of the top 40 televised sports games were NFL football match-ups. Come the fall of 2017, however, the NFL’s popularity took a severe hit and so, too, did the league’s bottom line.

Our Need for Breeding

America now has the lowest fertility rate in its history. Each couple must on average give birth to at least 2.1 children just to maintain a nation’s population. In America today, fertility has plummeted to 1.8 children per couple, a decline that if continued will cause economic and demographic doom, as is happening in Europe and Japan. The Millennials – Generation Y born from around 1984 to 2000 – are the reason, according to a 2017 study. [more...]

‘Every Female in the Press Corps Knew’ About Conyers

A sizable chunk of the press corps knew about Congressman Conyers. They knew about it for years. And while they were trumpeting their anti-Bush and anti-Trump pieces, they said nothing. "Don’t get in the elevator with him, you know, ... every female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him," said Cokie Roberts. Roberts is political royalty. And, as usual, nothing was said. And now she's acting as if the belated revelation is an act of courage, instead of a disgraceful and belated effort. [more...]

Predator or Politics?

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... We analyze President Trump's surprise endorsement of GOP candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama special Senate election: Why did he do it? What is the risk? Will it push Moore to victory - or cost the GOP women voters in this race and the 2018 mid-terms? What of the sexual scandals? Are there more to come? And what are Special Counsel Mueller's latest moves? [more...]
