"Even if he’s as bad as he sometimes projects to be, he’s not as bad as Hillary’s policy-record already is." Sometimes, things in politics are the opposite of the way they seem. The Presidential contest between the ‘liberal’ Hillary Clinton’ and the ‘conservative’ Donald Trump is perhaps the most extreme example of this - for these ten reasons...
Trickle-down Trump’s largesse to the rich along with his mirage of spending cuts paint a gold-plated trump o'well finish on America’s decline: No plan to reform or replace the Fed. No breaking up banks too big to fail. Puts Goldman-Sachs in charge of the Treasury. The establishment has already given Trump a comb-over they can live with.
"These linear thinkers can’t understand why their playbook of lies, misinformation, pointless social justice issues and a myriad of other inane distractions aren’t working this time. They fail to acknowledge that history is cyclical and we’ve entered the phase when generational cohorts are aligned for dramatic sweeping change. The data is there for all to see, but those benefiting from the current perverted paradigm will not be swept aside without a bloody fight."
The looming demographic crisis continues to look more and more bleak as we get closer to the Baby Boomer cliff with Americans refusing to save money all while Social Security continues its march towards insolvency.

A report released recently by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) shows one in every 20 Americans misused prescription painkillers last year.

The corporate mainstream media faux journalists scorn and ridicule anyone who makes the case we are currently in the midst of another Great Depression. They are paid to peddle a recovery narrative to keep the masses ignorant, sedated, and distracted by latest adventures of Caitlyn Jenner and the Kardashians. An impartial assessment of the facts reveals today’s Depression to be every bit as dreadful for the average American as it was in the 1930s
Shares in government scapegoat-du-jour Mylan are tumbling once again today following accusations from Senator Ron Wyden - the top Democrat on the Senate finance committee - that Mylan may have misclassified EpiPen under the Medicaid program, causing overpayments for the last two decades. It appears the populist war against Myland just went to '11' as the drug company may face major retroactive penalties.
Companies are taking advantage of a mix of laws that force insurers to include essentially all expensive drugs in their policies, and a philosophy that demands that every new health care product be available to everyone, no matter how little it helps or how much it costs. Anything else and we’re talking death panels...If Obamacare did not force insurers to provide coverage for every drug, and if Medicare put a cap on costs, prescription drug prices would crash. The same applies to operations and every other aspect of health care. Government is the problem, not the solution.
