Low Prices and Federal Policies Reducing Oil Industry Workforce

The decline in oil prices has meant much lower gasoline prices for the consumer, which is a good thing for many Americans who drive to work or take driving vacations. But, the oil industry’s workforce is not faring well because low oil prices means less money to invest in drilling new oil wells and with fewer wells comes lower employment.

It’s not the rioters but the cops politicians want off the streets

It doesn’t matter that Freddie Gray deliberately may have been trying to injure himself, banging about in a van.  It doesn’t matter because the truth doesn’t matter to those rioting in the streets.  It doesn’t matter because the violent protests in Baltimore have zippo to do with Gray’s death but everything to do with the anarchy that seeks to replace the blue line in Baltimore and in other American cities.

No Tears For WMDs

I have no tears for those I term, WMDs, “Weapons of Municipal Destruction.”

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu shed symbolic ones in local media over a 21 year old armed robbery suspect killed by police Tuesday after robbing a supermarket. The mayor even said, “As a city and as a community, we have to do a better job of helping these young guys turn away from the bad decisions that they make.”

“Search and Rescue” - 40 Years Later

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon that ended the Vietnam War.

While North and South Vietnam are considered “reunified,” today tens of thousands of Veterans from the Vietnam War remain dispossessed by our own U.S government and continue to live homeless and hungry in deplorable and inhumane conditions on American soil.

Curfews etc. for something bigger later on

I think the riots are simply programming people to get used to a military presence… (instead of police) …and curfews etc. for something bigger later on.

Circumstantial Evidence

Imagine that you are the former Governor of Virginia, Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, both sitting in jail after having been found guilty last year of public corruption for accepting golf outings, lavish vacations and $120,000 in “sweetheart” loans. Compared to the Clintons they are just two failed bit players.

The Democratic Party: Weekend at Bernie’s

Not a golden oldie, but a cult classic in its own right, “Weekend at Bernie’s” is making a comeback. A strange modern-day slapstick escapade with little critical success, this a box office smash from the late 1980s that not only enjoyed three rereleases, but its latest uploads on YouTube.

The unlikely story featured two young insurance associates, Larry Wilson and Richard Parker, who discover a massive accounting error ($2 million) and report the mistake to their boss, Bernie Lomax. In reality, the mistake was an attempted embezzlement by the same employer, knee-deep in mob connections and all attending troubles. In order to correct the correction, Lomax orders hitmen to take out the associates Wilson and Parker, and he invites them to his weekend retreat under the guise of rewarding them.

Uh oh: Witness says Freddie Gray intentionally injured himself in police van


Perhaps overlooked in the midst of the Baltimore riots is the fact that their purported cause - the death of Freddie Gray in police custody - remains a mystery insofar as the investigation of its cause is not complete. The presumption of the mobs and of the media is that the cops beat Gray and caused the spinal injury that led to his death.

Why The US Should Worry About Oil Sector Jobs

Outside of individual’s holding oil stocks, damage to the economy from the fall in oil has been pretty minimal so far. Indeed, the price cut in home heating oil and gasoline has probably outweighed the damage from lower oil prices… so far. Unfortunately, this situation may not last.
