    Trump-appointed regulators reject plan to rescue coal and nuclear plants

    I seem to recall some months ago a great bruhaha in the papers regarding President Trumps support for the coal industry and one Rick Perry that wanted to support certain cash strapped coal and nuclear plants with guarantees and financial support. From memory there would be some form of support...

    The genius of Trumps Tax Plan.

    If this passes we will all get moderate tax relief temporarily. The genius part come in here. "The joint committee found that by 2023, the tax cuts would disappear for groups with modest incomes. Specifically, those earning under $10,000 would see their taxes rise by a cumulative $100 million...

    Trump skeptical of his own tax plan

    President Trump has built an escape hatch from his own tax plan. In Indianapolis, he bragged that it's the "largest tax cut in our county's history." But in the West Wing earlier, Trump resisted the framework that had been cooked up by congressional leaders, plus economic adviser Gary Cohn and...

    Trump’s Laughable Plan to Cut His Own Taxes

    As a rule, Republican presidents like offering tax cuts, and President Trump is no different. But the skimpy one-page tax proposal his administration released on Wednesday is, by any historical standard, a laughable stunt by a gang of plutocrats looking to enrich themselves at the expense of the...

    President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was at the center of a bombshell New York Times report published Sunday that said he hand-delivered a "peace plan for Russia and Ukraine" to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign...

    At a time when Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia, and the people connected to him, are under heightened scrutiny — with investigations by American intelligence agencies, the F.B.I. and Congress — some of his associates remain willing and eager to wade into Russia-related efforts behind the scenes...

    Obama Administration unveils plan for Alaskan Oil. I don't think this is a good thing. We will pay for being dependent on foreign oil as we did in the 1970's. Though with all the technology we have today you would figure there would be a way to do this...

    Martial Law plan announced for one Arkansas town. Ok so I read this article and I don't get it. They are essentially instating Martial Law for a High crime rate. The population of this city is almost 27,000 people. 1 Murder in 10 years. Certain crimes went up yes but really to do this is...

    Lanza took time to Plan the attack.

    I figured he planned it in advance. Though I do disagree with leaving the mental issue alone and stop focusing on it. I mean does a sane person truly commit a crime of this magnitude? I don't think so, so in reality mental issues come into play somewhere along the line.

    The Purple Tax Plan 15-15-15

    Interesting proposal for tax reform. I like that they want to tax consumption (progressively) instead of income and savings. Few things I don't agree with, but it beats what we currently have:

    Rick Santorum tax plan

    The Rick Santorum tax plan is ridiculous. I think the guy just put together something that he thinks will help him win votes and nothing more. It is very convoluted (0% on manufacturing and nothing else, what's that about?) and would make our deficit situations even worse as it cuts A LOT of...
