Amazon: ‘Negotiating the Best Deal’ with Government – Is Almost Always Cronyism, Not Capitalism

A very fortunate part of my very fortunate gig is – I get to do a lot of radio interviews. Thanks in no small part to Rush Limbaugh (re-)creating political talk radio – Marconi job opportunities have been created throughout the land.  Under the Limbaugh banner are thousands of nationally and regionally syndicated – and thousands more local – hosts plying their radio wares. And | Read More »

Government Contracting: It’s Tough to Go International – There’s So Much Corruption Overseas

When the United States government goes shopping for contractors, there is an inherent tension between two competing desires for whom the Feds hire. You’d like to see the gigs go to American companies and people.  But you’d like the taxpayers to get the best deal – and that might mean non-American companies and people.

Muslim Congressional Hopeful Rashida Tlaib: ‘No’ to Continued Aid to Israel

    If Democratic candidate Rashida Tlaib is elected in November, the Michigan primary-winner will become the first Muslim congresswoman in history. She’ll also do something else: “absolutely” vote against a continuance of aid to Israel. During an interview with the UK’s Channel 4 News, Tlaib was asked if she’d put the kibosh on military assistance to the tiny Middle Eastern state. She responded in | Read More »

Amazon: Government – And Its Crony, Monopoly Straight-Jacket

Every intellectually honest person acknowledges government its own self – is a monopoly. Only the government Post Office can legally deliver First Class mail – because government has made it illegal for anyone else to do so. As a flood victim of Hurricane Irma – I can assure you government monopoly flood insurance is…mind-meltingly awful. And just wait to see how un-great government-medicine Medicare-for-All will | Read More »
