Legalized pot in N.J. a $300 million tax jackpot?

Pot should be legal. It should be totally legal. (Not that we condone its use.) Saying that, under the Constitution and per the 10th Amendment, cannabis is an issue which the states individually should decide. In many respects, in the most obvious case of legal nullification to date, that is exactly what’s going on across the nation. This is legitimate progress. Legal cannabis isn’t going to end the world. The sun will still come up. People will still go to church.

Fmr. McDonald’s USA CEO: $35K Robots Cheaper Than Hiring at $15 Per Hour – says we’ll see job losses like we’ve never seen

And the robots will only get better and cheaper.

Again we ask how it is that the SEIU and the other unions agitatiting for a radically higher minimum wage don’t understand that they are putting people out of work?

My bet actually is that they do understand that there will be big job losses but that they figure in the short term in states like California and New York there is hay to be made and perhaps new union dues to extract.

Venezuela crisis: When daily life turns into a nightmare (VIDEO)

Nicholas Maduro with the now suspended (also socialist) president of Brazil Dilma Rouseff.

An excellent report from France 24.

Socialism is subsidized by real wealth. In Venezuela’s case it was oil wealth. That was the “fat” which made fake prices and closed markets possible, for a time. But as real wealth disappears and is not replenished socialism quickly erodes. Unfortunately those running the socialist machine, the cronies (socialism and crony capitalism are cousins if not one and the same,

Clinton Adviser, Nobel Prize Winning Economist Endorsed Venezuelan Socialism

Oh, there’s a whole crew of Americans who were/are on the wrong side of this one. It would be sweet to see them sweat if it weren’t for the suffering of the Venezuelan people. (A country which should be rich.)

Viva la libertad! Viva Venezuela!

We need to know the algorithms the government uses to make important decisions about us

Good luck getting that information.

If one is in high school right now and one is considering which career path to take I strongly suggest learning how to write and manipulate algorithms. Our world is already deeply influenced by algos, from our social media to our grocery purchases. Their importance in our lives will only grow.

Here’s The Full List Of Organizations That Paid Hillary Clinton From 2013-2015

Here’s the full list in case you haven’t seen it. This doesn’t even include her husband.

Dolla dolla bill ya’ll.

ACC is a completely non-partisan organization. We do not support/endorse or oppose any candidate for office. We believe that both major parties are heavily influenced by special interests and will report on crony capitalism wherever and whenever we see it.

New Mexico, suing the EPA over spill caused by the agency, Seeking $100 million

The Animas River spill of last year, the spill which turned the pristine and picturesque river into a yellow/brown toxic mess is one of 2 water tragedies made worse by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2015. (The other being the Flint water situation.) Truly it is about time we held the biggest polluter of all, the government, accountable. At least in this case the state of New Mexico is seeking to do that.

Consider that if a private company had done this the CEO would probably would have been dismissed or at least tarred and feathered in the media.

Virginia Gov. (Clinton ‘friend’, and former head of the DNC) Terry McAuliffe under federal investigation for campaign contributions

Well, let’s hope justice (whatever it is one way or the other) is done in the Commonwealth of Virginia. My sweet home. Did we mention that Terry McAuliffe is the former head of the Democratic National Committee and a close friend of the Clintons? Did we mention that the Governor has a long history of questionable dealings to say the least, including cashing in big just before one of the biggest bankruptcies in corporate history? Did we mention that McAuliffe is originally from Syracuse,

Keynes Must Die

Indeed he must. As Hunter Lewis the co-founder of Against Crony Capitalism has said, Keynesianism is the mother of crony capitalism as we know it. Keynesian economic theory gives intellectual cover to politicians and social theoreticians who want to spend the money of a society anyway. It is an excuse. It is a cult. It is destructive and it is obviously, especially as we see at this late date, as the world slowly succumbs to its ever growing debt burden,
