Damn Those Rich Republican Politicians!!

Really?

Ever wonder about the the net worth of the average US Congressman or Congresswoman as it reflects on the various party members?

You might (or might not) be surprised at the answer. Just food for thought.

That's Not A Sword.....

This is an object lesson in what happens when you're improperly prepared. If you're going to rob a convenience store with a sword, make sure its bigger than the owners.

I believe there's a Crocodile Dundee joke in there somewhere.

The Real Effect Of Shale Oil On The World Market

The article linked below never says it directly, but in it's attempt to drive Shale Oil (mostly from the U.S.A.) out of business, Saudi Arabia is finally seeing the negative effects of their strategy.

It's about time.

See How Fast A Politician Changes Their Tune Once Their Party Starts Losing Elections

Frau Chancellor Merkel of Germany is singing a different song since her political party lost seats in a round of voting in several parts of Germany the other day. She's obviously more concerned with the loss of party seats in the government, no doubt catching shit from her own party members, than she is with the welfare of the people who voted her and her CDU party into power in the first place.

Her "We can do it" catch line is now out of use since the 'common' people have figured out that we only applies to them, and not to the people in charge who live in high end neighborhoods and have armed guards at their disposal 24/7/365.

Just How Much "Good Work" Does The Clinton Foundation Do?

All I ever hear from the mainstream media and Democratic party pundits and supporters is "But the Clinton Foundation does so much good work".....

Really?

According to their 2014 IRS Tax filing, it's not as much as they would like people to believe. As far as I'm concerned, any charitable organization that isn't spending at least 50% of their donations on actual charitable work should not be be classed as charitable organizations and should lose any tax exempt status they have.

As for the Clinton Foundation, let's look at the numbers shall we?

All Is Not Well In Brussells

After voting to leave the EU, Britain appears to have sparked a mini rebellion among other EU member states. Several of the Eastern European states are also unhappy with the Brussels mandated immigration policies and have decided to have their own discussion about just how much sovereignty they really are willing to cede.

Apparently we are all living in interesting times.
