Some end up as cheap labor at a chicken farm, some may end up in prostitution.
As we have said before, there is no group who has gotten a more rotten deal from the US government than the American Indians. And that deal continues to this day. Many American Indians live in the last pockets of the 3rd world in the United States. Under the direct watch of Washington bureaucrats of course. (Who are often paid nicely.)
How nice for him. I hear Rome is lovely this time of year. And how nice that Biden gets to bring his family with him on the taxpayer’s dime. I mean if Mrs. Obama can do it in China, why not the Vice President in Italy? It’s only the taxpayer’s money. There is a certain style to which one becomes accustomed when Vice President of course.
Such respect for the taxpayer. Good ole’ “middle class Joe.”
The VA system is single payer healthcare. Now imagine the fraud and abuse we see here magnified exponentially and you have what some people want in this country. In the name of “justice.”
The below is truly disgusting. This is the sort of thing which makes people completely distrustful of government. Remember, these alleged fraudsters get to keep hundreds of thousands of dollars allegedly taken from the taxpayer, but some of our veterans can’t even get in to see a doctor so they can be treated for sickness.
Why do we allow politicians and government in general to lie to us? Andrew Napolitano explores and explains.
Christina Fernandez de Kirchner apparently has no interest in bowing out of politics gracefully. Ala Nancy Pelosi she will remain in the political wings, waiting for an opportunity to reassert herself, keeping rivals from rising, and making sure her presence informs the political decisions of allies and enemies alike.
The victory over the Peronists in Argentina is clearly a victory for the Argentine people and for freedom generally. However, Macri comes to power with much to prove. Will he break with the cronyist system which is so entrenched in Argentina? Can he?
Mark this post. No recession until 2027. Whoopee! Take that to the bank! Bank of America that is! Happy days are here again. Good thing the always reliable economists can see 12 years into the future. I, seriously, feel so much better about things. Just wonderful.
If one is a state employee and one wants to game the system and just abuse taxpayers few states are better than Illinois. There is California though. (Weather is better there too.)
I’m sure that the environment was a key concern, not that we want to make sure the oil infrastructure is functional when we take it back over so our “friends” can turn on the money spigot right away. And it has nothing to do with our “friends” making money off of deals with ISIS currently either.
The crony media is not a new topic here and the news that one of Politico’s top dogs promised to be extra special nice to Chelsea Clinton in an interview doesn’t surprise us. It probably doesn’t surprise our readers either. But it is worth noting how cuddly the generally liberal but often excellent website is, with, well, politicos. I have been to a few Politico functions. “Lovefest” is too strong a word,
Oh cash, you are dying quickly. The machine wants you dead, and when the machine wants you dead, sooner or later you’re gonna be dead.
I actually don’t think corporate inversions are bad. There are lots of things corporations do which are bad, and we chronicle them here all the time. Working the system for subsidies. Working the system to gain inside contracts. Gaming the system to shut out competitors. Buying politicians. And a million other things. But inversions in principal are not bad. Of course a corporation is going to want to minimize its tax outlay.
