Most unfortunately, governments at every level – federal, state and local – have grown to exceedingly obese size and status. Making them corpulent targets for bribes from monster companies – to ladle government gravy atop the monster companies’ biscuits. Governments are monstrously outsized.  So too, of course, is the cronyism monster companies seek and are…

Big Tech companies – are monsters. Microsoft: Market Cap: $958 billion. Amazon: Market Cap: $853 billion. Apple: Market Cap: $840 billion. Google: Market Cap: $727 billion. The entire United States economy – currently is $19.4 trillion. Those four companies – currently represent $3.4 trillion of value. Or 17.5% of our entire national worth. Yikes. But…

One would have to be deaf, blind…and living in a cave in a cliff on a remote Pacific atoll – to miss the obnoxious amounts of incestuous cronyism that exists between monstrously huge tech company Amazon and the Department of Defense (DoD).

The federal government spends a whopping four trillion dollars per year.  And prior to the Donald Trump Administration’s most overdue and much appreciated mass regulatory reductions – the federal government regulated at a compliance cost of two trillion dollars per year. That’s six trillion dollars per year worth of power – lorded over a country…

This last week delivered us an end to a nauseating year-plus saga. Which consisted of the World’s Richest Man Jeff Bezos private jetting himself all around the nation.  So as to have government after government promise to hand him ever larger piles of our money – in exchange for Bezos choosing their locale to locate…

Happy Election Day, All. Still astride us like a drunk, very stupid Colossus – is the Robert Mueller investigation into the non-existent collusion between the Donald Trump presidential campaign and Russia. Ignoring entirely the very obvious, very blatant collusion between the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and Russia. As we head to the polls today –…
