These people care nothing for liberty or freedom or you. Live free. Be free. Be a citizen. You are worthy of dignity.
The neocons are for big government and wars. Bill Kristol is for big government and wars. The neocons disliked Reagan and celebrated George W. Bush’s massive expansion of the state. They loathe libertarianism and they loathe the Pauls. They quietly like Hillary Clinton who is basically an extension of George W. Bush in many respects. In fact most neocons – most of whom are Bushites – would probably like to see Hillary win this go’round. (Though they can’t say it publicly –
Some people are acting like it’s some big coup that the Bushes (who were basically humiliated in the primaries) are attacking Trump. Folks, of course they are attacking Trump. They got spanked. Lindsey Graham is attacking Trump. Mitt Romney is attacking Trump. The Bushite neocons are on the record as saying they may defect to Hillary because Trump isn’t sufficiently hawkish for them. And you will notice that these washed up Republicans aren’t running out and endorsing the small government candidate,
This is from 2011 when the wounds of the Crash were still fresh.
Now we’ve been conditioned. Time has passed and the banks want you to forget what happened and the dull economic pain which still dogs the world.*
We at ACC will never forget.
At the end of this video is a very short ad for someone who was running for Congress. We do not endorse candidates ever. We don’t know who this person is.
Crony capitalism is not new. It’s more sophisticated. It’s more pervasive than it has been in the US. But it’s not new. In fact it is as old as government.
This is a direct reflection of the Internet revolution.
People have always questioned the established order of a particular time. They had hunches that something was amiss. That the whole story wasn’t being told. Now people can follow their hunches more easily by going online.
It’s not so different from what happened with the printing press.
Now let’s see if the IRS commissioner decides to show up at his impeachment hearings after all. My guess is this is a bone the agency threw to Congress.
Here’s the letter.
*The “previously scheduled” May 25th meeting with Ways and Means wasn’t even a meeting to which Koskinen was invited but instead insisted on attending.
Winds of change are blowing.
That feels about right. And it should be remembered that the state as we know it is very much a product of the 20th Century. Just as highly centralized, highly hierarchical corporations are. Corporations have been forced to adjust to the new less centralized world (though this is ongoing), governments are just beginning to feel the winds of change.
I’ll bet this congressman is in good company.
Facebook is a private company and it has a right to do whatever it wishes with its platform. We will also say that Facebook has been an excellent outlet for ACC generally. But the issues presented in the attached article from Gizmodo should be aired and they are of concern. Facebook is a widely trusted brand. Everyone uses it, “liberals,” conservatives, libertarians, everyone. Facebook should seek to maintain this trust. It’s one of the things which makes Facebook such a special and truly great company.
The dinner in a nutshell.
I hate the term “nerd prom” anyway. It’s such baloney. It’s self aggrandizement veiled in false modesty. The people who attend the dinner aren’t “nerds.” They don’t think of themselves as “nerds.” They are social climbing politicos. Throw in the Hollywood people and the whole thing is practically insufferable. Bill Press agrees.
Paying taxes has always been a pain. It should be much easier. (Assuming any taxes at all of course.)
I wouldn’t encourage anyone to try to find out.
“The precipitousness of the political debate is a little scary right now,” said Jim McNerney, who served as chief executive of Boeing Co. until last year and as chairman until February, at a recent industry conference.
“Anti-business” and “anti-market” are 2 very different things.
Many feel frustrated these days. There is the sense that there is an agenda and that everyday people are not part of that agenda.
Many people have been under considerable economic pressure since the Crash in 2008,
This is handy. See what your tax outlay might look could look like next year. It could be ugly(er).
