Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) pushing Hollywood Fiction for More Banking Regulations

May 6, 2016 — Megan Barth

If it moves, tax it.  If it keeps moving, regulate it.  If it stops moving, subsidize it.—Ronald Reagan

Enter Dodd Frank: legislation named after Democrats’ Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank, which enacted 2,300 pages of banking regulations.  What could have possibly gone wrong with 2,300 pages of new government regulations on banks?  This:

When the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act took effect on July 21, 2010, it immediately caused a sharp partisan division. This staggeringly large legislation—2,300 pages—passed the House without a single Republican vote and received only three GOP votes in the Senate. Republicans saw the bill as ObamaCare for the financial system, a vast and unnecessary expansion of the regulatory state.

Justice for Clay: A True Story of the Cruel and Unusual Punishment of a Brain Injured Veteran

Apr 28, 2016 — Megan Barth

Clayton “Clay” John App is a 33 year old, 7 year veteran of the US Army who served two tours in Iraq during Operation Enduring Freedom. A soldier who returned home from the war with TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and who now sits in the General Population of a Florida state prison serving an 18 month sentence for selling $200 of drugs to a confidential informant.  This wounded warrior is my cousin and this is Clay’s story. 

Clay was always a bright, beautiful child. Following in his grandfather’s military footsteps, he joined the Army in 2005. As a testament to his intelligence, Clay was offered Honor Guard three times, yet turned it down because “he wanted to go Airborne.”  Clay was part of the first surge in Iraq, deployed in January 2007, and sent to Sadr City, aka Hell on Earth. Hell on Earth was his home for the next 15 months.  He still cannot talk about the many horrors he was witness to, but finding the severed heads of children in boxes is one story that still haunts him.

Congress, Not Obama’s Cronies, Can Save Puerto Rico

My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.—Errol Flynn

Due to Puerto Rico’s gross habits, the commonwealth has amassed a total debt of over $72 billion and has already defaulted on $221 million of its’ debt.  When unfunded liabilities (pensions) are included, these additional costs bring the total value of their debt closer to $165 billion, approximately $150% of its’ GDP.

According to the NY Times:  “On May 1 the island’s all-important Government Development Bank must make debt payments of $422 million, which it does not seem to have. Two months later, about $2 billion is due from the central government and a number of big public enterprises: the electric power authority, the water and sewer authority and the highway authority, among others. Puerto Rico’s constitution effectively guarantees at least some of those payments, but the money to make them appears to have dried up.”
