Call it like it is. 9-9-9 is a simple slogan that people can remember and understand at a high level. It's great marketing to get votes.
But once you start digging and get beyond the slogan, you realize this is not good economics. Period. It doesn't matter what side of the aisle this is coming from, it doesn't help ...more
A double-dip recession is not a surprise to most of us. But if we're going to come out of the 2nd one strong, Washington DC better start governing for The People, not corporations and special interests.
It's time to vote in term limits (2-3 terms) for every single politician's seat. That is clearly the one thing tha...more
The educational system is to blame for blatantly taking advantage of kids. And the parents are to blame for not knowing any better and allowing their 18 year old kids to get taken advantage and allowing them to get buried in large amounts of debt just because "everyone else is doing it."

But there's no way we can do that right without also cutting defense spending and entitlements. The latter is an ugly topic, but it's time we got real with the former. How can we justify dropping bombs when our school system budgets are ...more
The big item in this article that stands out for me is innovation. Innovation is investing. Investing is a line-item spend. You can't cut spending without curbing innovation. But without innovation, the US will (and is) falling behind.
Somehow, someway both sides need to compromise and come to a long term agreement ...more
This article was sponsored by bank/credit card lobbyists. To sit on debt is absolutely stupid! If you can pay it down or off in large chunks, pay it off as fast as you can without hesitation.
I'm about to erase the last $10k of student loan debt I have, which will be the last debt I have besides my mortgage. I simp...more
This is yet another in a long line of red flags for the US and its people. We MUST invest heavily in green technologies if we want to remain an elite nation.
We cannot fail in this initiative. If we do, then we will be at the mercy of oil producing nations, Russia, China.
And it's going to take billions to inv...more
