Surprise! The corporate tax cut is going into stock buybacks

Remember how Trump promised us that cutting the corporate tax rate would encourage corporations to invest in America, which would turn into jobs? Yeh, I know. To believe that would require not knowing how economics work.
Corporations only invest in production when they expect more demand. Without demand, corporations will do stuff like this.

The War On Homeless Americans

This is another update from your friendly neighborhood homeless advocate on the crusade to criminalize homeless Americans.

Christopher Steele's lawyer is Oleg Deripaska's lobbyist and employee

Much of what is known about Paul Manafort’s alleged activities on behalf of Russia is based on court documents revealed in a series of law suits dating back to 2014. One of them was filed in Virginia in August 2015, leading to the “outing” of Paul Manafort and his firing as Trump’s Campaign Manager. The plaintiff in those cases is Oleg Deripaska.

Ya just gotta love ‘The CIA Democrats’ from the wsws

Ordinarily, I’m most sincerely disinterested in electoral politics, but this is just too great to pass up.  It’s an epic example of libruls who’ve learned to love the CIA and other ‘intelligence’ agencies since the advent of the Mueller investigations.  That there was no appreciable anti-war movement under the D Drone Killer in Chief, and there likely wouldn’t have been had the Red Queen been in the White House now is self-evident, but this evidence that the DCCC libruls have learned to love da bomb, high up military figures, as well as Special Ops and Seal assassins may have been predictable for some, but campaigning on those ‘credentials’ is breathtaking hubris in plain sight.  But on with the show!

Friday Night Photography

The Central Valley got sogged in by fog every winter and so I'd hook up my lil trailer and head to Bodega Bay with my dawgs for Xmas.

One year the winter storms were more fierce and the waves flooded half of the campground, but that was okay because there were only 3 other spots occupied. The sound of the waves that year was very loud.

Bill Gates: We will have another financial crisis like the one in 2008—it's a 'certainty
8:00 AM ET Wed, 7 March 2018

The 2008 financial crisis led to the Great Recession and millions of jobs lost. It took years for America to recover and many citizens still feel the ripple effects. According to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, though, we should be braced for another one.

A Timeline of CIA attrocities

CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition.

The Protocols of the Elders of Putin

Not since the Nazi era have we seen a state-sponsored campaign of murderous hatred and warmongering to match the one being whipped up against Russia. Even more ominously, never before in America have government agencies (CIA, NSA, FBI, DOJ - and the overt censorship/propaganda of the "Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016") directly spread fascistic propaganda.

D.C. Kabuki Theater Feature: "Democrats Want Net Neutrality."

On December 13, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission, an agency established under "Old Democrat" Franklin D. Roosevelt, voted to repeal the net neutrality rules that the FCC had adopted during the administration of New Democrat Barack H. Obama. Now, Congressional Democrats are proceeding with a resolution under a statute that allows Congress to reverse a ruling of a federal agency, such as the FCC, with "only" a majority vote--if done within sixty days.
