That huge sell-off in the markets today is simply a Black Friday discount for buyers of the dip

What’s a 3% dip in the stock market? The news is blaming the latest COVID variant… ooooooo so scary. Nothing to worry about. Nothing to see here. It’s simply a 3% discount on all the stocks you want to buy. Heck… use some of that stimulus money and gamble...

Venezuela is our future if we don’t stop the march towards socialism

Venezuela nationalized most of their big industries. Government pushed out the private sector in the name of equity and fairness for the people. The standard definition of socialism is “government ownership of the means of production.” When government takes ownership of the means of production, that is called “nationalization.”...

Higher wages… less purchasing power. The Biden inflation legacy

I doubt the $15 minimum wage promoters will understand that you can get paid more but make less in the end. I’m sure the Biden administration will print up more money to pass out. That’ll solve the problem. Real (after inflation) average hourly earnings have declined for seven consecutive...

Investors may finally be learning that China is no place to invest

We should have never started conducting business in mainland China. Communist countries are closed boxes where everything is owned by the government regardless of how much they make it appear they do not. An article in the Wall Street Journal lays out how the Chinese government changed their regulations...

Inflation starting to look a little sticky

I’m starting to lean towards the notion that this will not be a transitory inflationary period. If a federal $15 minimum wage comes to pass combined with further climate change regulations there is nowhere for costs to go except up. “In an environment where inflation continues to rise quarter...

Supermarkets stock up to protect profits from inflation

Nah, inflation isn’t happening. After all Sleepy Joe told us our 4th of July cookout cost us $0.16 less than last year. Sure, he ignored the 8% increase in cost over 2 years ago because it was inconvenient. The nation’s supermarkets also must not be living in reality. They...

President Biden misleads public on cost of 2021 4th of July cookout

The Whitehouse’s tweet says a cookout in 2021 costs $0.16 less than in 2020. Trying to tamp down inflation fears by saying prices are not rising. If you look at the source of the information used in their misleading video they say the price of that cookout is 8%...

Technology rapidly replacing restaurant staff

Just say no to hiring. Competing against the federal government in hourly pay is a no win situation. Private business can’t compete against an entity that doesn’t have to turn a profit and has the ability to print money at will. High end restaurants might still need a wait...

U.S. digital dollar is coming

If you’ve been paying attention you could see this coming down Main Street for the last 10 years. This video from the Wall Street Journal, to me, shows that we are rapidly heading down the path of digital money. The implementation of this will be something to watch. No...

Companies don’t want remote employees from Colorado

The air might be a little too thin in Colorado. It’s affecting their ability to think clearly. You have to love unintended consequences of stupid laws. Colorado passed a law in an effort to narrow gender wage gaps. They succeeded in spectacular fashion. There is no wage gap if...
