Debt Management: Is There Any Hope For America’s Debt Problem?

Wouldn’t it be nice if our politicians in Washington D.C. simply decided that we are not going to spend more money then we bring in?  That would just seem to be common sense.  After all, what do most of those big time debt management seminars teach?  Most of the time they tell families with debt problems that the very first thing that they need to do is to stop spending so much darn money.  Well, with the U.S. government things are just not that simple.  In fact, even the most “crazy” budget proposals floating around Congress right now would not balance the federal budget until 20 years from now.  The truth is that there does not seem to be much hope for America’s debt problem.  In fact, it appears to be inevitable that it will continue to get worse long into the future.

This Is What Happens When Establishment Control Of The Media Cracks For A Moment

Every once in a while, establishment control of the mainstream media cracks for a moment.  In an effort to achieve higher ratings, mainstream news programs will invite guests on that promise to be “interesting”, but then they will say something that is not part of the script and the entire system will go into a state of chaos for a moment. One example of this happened recently when two CNN “infobabes” interviewed former CIA officer Michael Scheuer about the situation on the ground in Libya. They asked Scheuer some questions regarding the role of the CIA in Libya, but the interview rapidly moved in some directions that the “infobabes” were not anticipating.  Instead of sticking to the “Republican” or the “Democrat” script, Scheuer ripped both parties and he detailed many of the reasons why we should have never gone into Libya at all.

Radiation In Milk?

First they found radiation in milk in Spokane, Washington.  Then they found radiation in milk in San Luis Obispo County, California.  Now they have found radiation in milk in Arizona as well.  Should we just start assuming that all of our milk is going to have nuclear radiation from Japan in it until further notice?  Of course federal authorities insist that the levels of radiation being detected are completely safe and that nobody should start worrying about the milk that they are drinking.  In fact that there are even some crackpots out there that are attempting to claim that nuclear radiation from Japan is actually good for us.  Yes, let’s all run out and guzzle as much of that “nutritious” radioactive milk as we can.  Of course it isn’t just milk that the radiation is getting into.  It is showing up in water supplies from coast to coast and it is inevitable that it is going to get into most of our food products.  Not that there is much that we can do about it.

Cell Phone Surveillance: Some Cell Phones Record Your Location Hundreds Of Times A Day

Do you own a cell phone?  Do you think that it is private and secure?  You might want to think again.  The truth is that there is virtually no privacy when it comes to cell phones.  In fact, the amount of cell phone surveillance that goes on is absolutely staggering.  For example, one German politician named Malte Spitz recently went to court to force Deutsche Telekom to reveal how often his cell phone was being tracked.  What he found out was absolutely amazing.  It turns out that in just one 6 month period, Deutsche Telekom recorded the longitude and latitude coordinates of his cell phone 35,000 times.  Not only that, in the United States cell phone companies are actually required by law to be able to pinpoint the locations of their customers to within 100 meters.  Most cell phone carriers are able to track their customers far more accurately than that.  The truth is that your location will never again be truly “private” as long as you are carrying a cell phone.

10 Facts About Corporate Taxes That Will Make Your Blood Boil

As the rest of us fill out our federal tax returns this year, we can all take great comfort in the fact that many of the largest corporations in the United States are not paying any federal taxes at all.  Over the past couple of decades, multinational corporations have become incredibly skilled at avoiding taxes.  It has become routine for big companies to shift profitable operations to divisions in other countries where tax rates are lower.  It has also become routine for big companies to set up “sham headquarters” in tax havens around the world.  Many U.S. corporations have even renounced their status as American companies in order to avoid paying taxes.  All of this has had a dramatic impact on the income of the federal government.  Corporate taxes now account for less than 7 percent of all federal revenue.  Back in the 1950s they accounted for about 30 percent of all federal revenue.  Meanwhile, the 35 percent corporate tax rate in the United States is chasing companies (and the accompanying good jobs) out of the United States at a blinding pace.  In a world where big corporations will go to any lengths to “game the system”, this is absolutely devastating our economy.
