New “Energy Bill” a 50% Tax Increase on Middle America

According to Martin Feldstein, the Energy Reform Act that has passed in Congress (but not in the Senate) represents the equivalent of a 50% tax increase to the average American Family. The Congressional Budget office predicts that passage of this bill will dramatically increase the cost of living for all Americans, by an average of […]

America 9/11

On this, the eve of the 4th of July, I want to share the lyrics one of the songs I have written about freedom. If you are reading this, you probably know that I cherish the freedom we have as Americans. I also feel that we are losing that freedom, bit by bit. I first […]

Can We Have Peace With Radical Islam?

I applaud Mr. Obama for taking initiatives to bridge the divide between the Muslim world and the West. If we don’t find a way to compromise in this matter, we will never live in a world without the fear of terrorism. That said, I hope our president realizes that it doesn’t really matter what the […]

Cloud Computing: The Next Tech Revolution

There is a new technological revolution underway that will dramatically change our lives, much as the PC and the Internet did. It is called cloud computing. There is a fierce battle over control of this turf, with trillions of dollars at stake. With the growth of computer usage, the explosion of app software, the increasing […]

Will Obama Create Jimmy Carter-like Stagflation? Forever?

I am seeing very ominous signs that our nation is heading toward a period of stagflation quite similar to what we experienced during the administration of Jimmy Carter. Our government has opened up the money spigot to help avoid a global financial collapse. This, in itself, will be inflationary. Flooding the markets with excess cash […]

Obama Cap-and-Trade: A Tax We Can’t Afford

The Obama administration is backing a bill going through Congress (Waxman-Markey) that would cap U.S. Co2 emissions at 83% of 2005 levels by the year 2020. While this is an idea that sounds good to the politician, it is a policy move that will severely tax the American people, it will cost American jobs and […]

GM Bankruptcy Another Union Payoff

General Motors went into a controlled bankruptcy today, with the government pledging another $30 Billion of our tax dollars to subsidize union labor. The unions have also become the company’s largest (apart from the government) shareholders. GM’s union workers still receive close to $50,000 per year in higher pay (including benefits) than Honda, Toyota, Nissan […]

Get Ready for the Quantum World

In most of my writing, I like to explore the edges of reality. There is so much that we don’t see, and what we do perceive is not always what actually exists. In conducting research for my upcoming book, The Presidential Pretender, I studied a number of leading-edge scientific areas. One of those areas was […]

The Next World War?

You may be wondering why Mr. Obama is allocating peacekeepers and money to Afghanistan/Pakistan. Here is why: First, if Bin Laden is alive, this is where he is. For a politician who is keenly focused on public opinion and legacy, the capture of this terrorist is like finding the Grail. Second, this is where the […]

Good News: New Medical Advances Are Extraordinary

We haven’t been seeing a lot of good news these days, so I thought I might brighten things up by focusing on some good things that are happening. There are extraordinary advances occurring in medical technologies that will dramatically change the face of medicine. Robot assisted surgery now allows top surgeons to operate from half […]
