How do your purchases affect employment?

November 1, 2013 in Home, Tech vs. Labor

In many of my other posts I explain the effects of automation and technological unemployment. Everyday people imagine ways to lay off massive amounts of people in the pursuit of profits. Once we acknowledge this as the largest threat to our country, we can begin to govern accordingly. As consumers [...]

Founder of the Free Market – Quotes

October 24, 2013 in Economics, Home

  Adam Smith’s economic text book inspired the greatest government that has ever existed; a democratic government that protects our rights to fair commerce. Smith wrote the Bible on economics, The Wealth of Nations. He comprehensively introduced the fundamental laws by which we should conduct business, to achieve stability and [...]

Free Democratic Republic Political Party

October 16, 2013 in Government, Home

Elect an FDR candidate and you’ll be able to vote on every bill in Congress. Instead of debating over the two parties, debate of the real issues and vote. Politicians rarely listen to us anyways. An FDR candidate has the easiest job  in the world, they’re just ceremonial. Kinda like [...]

Genes vs Tools

July 12, 2013 in Home, Tech vs. Labor

It was discovered that Humans have fewer genes today than thousands of years ago. Apparently, we  lose genes when we don’t need them. We evolve because we have the man made tools to handle our needs. Also, when we no longer need the gene for a specific function. Sometime species [...]

Descendant of a Historic Catcher

February 20, 2013 in Blog, Home

    I found this great story about my 2nd Great Grandfather, baseball and hatchet-man extraordinaire Ossie Schreckengost. As a catcher in the majors in the early 1900’s he started for two of the greatest pitchers of all time, Cy Young and Rube Waddell. He played in Boston in 1901 with Cy [...]

September 21, 2012 in Home, Small Business Perspective, Tech vs. Labor

In 30 years 70% of our jobs will be replaced by machines. Everyday companies are finding ways to replace workers with machines and software.

Greenhouses for Welfare

August 31, 2012 in Economics, Health, Home

Everyone in America can agree that welfare, while well intention,  can be abused. Without welfare there would be vast starvation and homelessness in America, so we can’t just pull out the rug, but welfare doesn’t offer the right incentives and teaches the individual nothing practical. Even the source of the money, other [...]

Who’s Entitled?

August 30, 2012 in Economics, Home, Small Business Perspective

Entitlement: a notion or belief that one is deserving of some particular reward or benefit. I often hear arguments that social programs cause people to become overly entitled. It’s true; when you learn to rely on something you can become dependent on it. For the same reason we are all dependent on our own ways of life and [...]

More or Less Regulation: What is the Answer?

August 20, 2012 in Economics, Home

We all remember when the housing market crashed. But do you remember why? In 1999 a group of republicans passed the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, signed by Bill Clinton, that deregulated home lending and led to a wasteful amount of new home construction. It help boost the economy and drove up home values, until the markets busted in [...]

Government Insurance or Corporate Insurance

July 20, 2012 in Economics, Government, Home

Insurance: A large group of people pooling their resources together in case of emergency. That’s similar to the description of government. So what’s the difference? When do we use government or leave it to the free market? We the people, pool our resources together to create a society that is [...]
