What’s So Special About the Capitol?

What’s So Special About the Capitol?

Ever since the January 6th Capitol riot the news media has been ceaselessly replaying the videos from that terrible day, bombarding us with the messaging that it was the worst violence we’ve seen in American history, worse than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. We are supposed to consume this footage like novices, as if we haven’t been totally desensitized by the non-stop pillaging of American cities in 2020.  Pardon, but why should I now be outraged by violence when it was celebrated…

The Wasted Ire of Wall Street Bets

The Wasted Ire of Wall Street Bets

By now we are all familiar with the Reddit community known as Wall Street Bets that took down some of Wall Street’s biggest hedge funds last week. The “stonks” stunt was hilarious, tactfully well played and made some people a ton of money. But with small trading apps now working in tandem with the hedge funds to mitigate the risks for Wall Street, I don’t anticipate that this movement will be able to continue to injure the hedge funds with…

Bureaucracy Kills – UK v EU Vaccine War

Bureaucracy Kills – UK v EU Vaccine War

After a year of lockdowns, vaccinations are finally making their way into the arms of eager citizens around the globe. The speed of that progress differs greatly between nations however. The UK is kicking butt and taking names with the third fastest vaccination rate in the world, behind only Israel and the UAE. Within Europe, the UK takes the top spot… and it’s not even close.  A little over 8.3 million people have had their first dose in the UK and just…

Vaccine Roll Out… A Numbers Game

Vaccine Roll Out… A Numbers Game

Vaccinations in the U.S. began Dec. 14 with health-care workers, and so far 22.4 million shots have been given, according to a state-by-state tally by Bloomberg and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the last week, an average of 1.16 million doses per day were administered.   It was unrealistic to assume that a nationwide, nay worldwide, roll out of a vaccine would be obstacle or hiccup free.  But here we are – approximately 6 weeks into the Coronavirus vaccine and according to the Bloomberg we have surpassed Biden’s…

Housing Booms During the Covid Bust

Housing Booms During the Covid Bust

The Covid-19 lockdowns have had varying effects on different industries and sectors of the economy in 2020. While big box brick and mortar stores along with online retailers are thriving, small businesses have gone bankrupt and the oil and travel industries have dwindled to a halt. However, one sector that is doing surprisingly well is the housing industry in the UK. Yes, you read that correctly, the housing market. At the precise time the UK GDP plunged nearly 20%, the most…

Where Are the Therapies?

Where Are the Therapies?

*While news broke yesterday about a potentially imminent vaccine developed by Pfizer, as no date is set for the release of the vaccine, we thought it was still relevant to publish the following regarding Covid-19 therapeutics. * On Friday, October 1, the country learned that President Trump had contracted Covid-19.  Yet in just 8 days, he was able to resume his public appearances and his aggressive campaign schedule.  The obvious question:  how did he do it?  How was he able to conquer the virus…

Critical Race Theory – Nothing Really New

Critical Race Theory – Nothing Really New

As a retired federal employee, I wasn’t surprised to hear about Critical Racial Theory (CRT).  Social Justice Warrior theories have long been embedded in federal training.  Over my 30-year federal career, I participated in numerous training initiatives whose goal was to improve performance and organizational relationships and dynamics.  Social justice theories were woven into the core concepts of the curriculum as it was believed that highlighting notions of equity, fairness, and anti-discrimination could foster better understanding of how implicit biases would engender more…

The Democrat Party’s Apartheid

The Democrat Party’s Apartheid

Another one bites the dust. And by that, I mean another friend has exiled me for wrong think. This friend currently lives in Rochester, dangerously close to the riots. When the news broke that the Rochester Police Chief and his entire command staff had resigned, she went on an incomprehensible rant blaming the president. How is the resignation of a black police chief under a black mayor, under a Democrat governor, the fault of Donald Trump?  I did not expect…

LYING – The New Coin of the Realm!

LYING – The New Coin of the Realm!

Why are there so many lies?  Or do we really live in an Alternative Universe? My father developed a euphemism to describe the lies permeating our social consciousness – “Looney Tunes” – pronounced “Loooonia Tuunes.”  The lies cover a broad landscape from outright silly to maliciously evil.  Here are just a few. Silly You can buy CARBON FREE Sugar because Carbon and Carbon Dioxide is killing the earth – it is poison.  Utter lunacy.  But here is the ad from Domino Sugar. Any high school…

The Alligator Ate You Last… But He Still Burned Down Your Business

The Alligator Ate You Last… But He Still Burned Down Your Business

Unsurprisingly, BLM support has dropped via polling data this week. Who knew that an entire summer of looting and arson all while blaming white people would eventually create a displeased populace? Just in the swing state of Wisconsin, BLM went from +25 to +0. I’ve even seen several posts on Twitter by users claiming they were once BLM supporters but are no longer as their businesses have been destroyed.  If you are one of these naïve people that has suddenly…
