Whether an individual consumer, business owner, community leader, elected or appointed official, if you are still opposed to higher minimum wages then you are just plain STUPID, don't care, and certainly DO NOT understand the engine that drives the US economy.

If you want to be a PARROT, instead of a PATRIOT, go ahead, keep "parroting" those talking points about the devastating effects a higher minimum wage would have on the economy that your political party, chamber of commerce, or other conflicted and the self-serving source is shoving down your throat!

The US Justice Department has finally ordered the release of Trump taxes and the truth of his dirty lies are about to be uncovered.

The Federal Government says Donald Trump's tax returns have to be turned over to Congress, which first requested them over a couple of years ago. Here’s how the stories were reported.~

Why does a billionaire space race have Branson and Bezos competing on spending millions on being first in outer space?

And why call it historic? This is not the first time billionaires burned through gobs of money and resources to accomplish something a monkey did 72 years ago. Wake up and face reality, folks.

Republican National Committee donors paid big money to hear twice-impeached and a two time loser liar in Palm Beach, the "new political power center" for the GOP.

This is the difference between Grift, to obtain money illicitly as in a confidence game and Graft, is the acquisition of some gain such as money in dishonest or questionable ways. These people made a ton of money while they were supposed to be focusing on serving the public.

The United States of America is showing its dark and ugly visage which may be a reason for serious concern in the near future.

Some would say that over the last four years of the Grand Old Party was full of lies, empty promises, hot air, tax breaks for the one percent and The Wall.

Deforestation is the permanent removal of trees to make room for something besides the forest. This is more about political deforestation by tainting the beautiful flowers and clean politics from the state of Florida’s government in the sunshine.

Donald Trump’s tax records are now in the hands of the New York district attorney. Prosecutors obtained the “millions of pages of documents” on Monday, just hours after the Supreme Court denied Trump's last-ditch effort to keep the records private.

This is a significant defeat for Trump, and we have the US Supreme Court to thank after declining to halt the turnover of his tax records in a New York state prosecution.

SCOTUS action is the culmination of a lengthy legal battle that had reached the high court once before. This second time puts his taxes on the firing line. 

This one is a one two punch and a hard blow because he had fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view. The ongoing investigation the records are part of what could also be an issue for Trump in his after life.
