The Bill Isn't Signed Yet, But Other Countries Have Already Launched a ‘Race to the Bottom' to

Undermine New U.S. Corporate Tax Cuts. The Trump bill, which reads like a wish list for Goldman Sachs and its clients, has already triggered an aggressive "race to the bottom" in international corporate tax rates, rules and regulations. It is the exact opposite of his campaign promise to help the middle class.

What the mainstream American news has failed to notice are the global responses, including: see article. read more

Staab appealed the VA's decision to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. He pointed out that the VA's regulation conflicted with a change in the law made by Congress in 2010. That change modified the language of 38 U.S.C. § 1725, which is the statute upon which the VA's regulation is based. As noted by the court, the purpose of this amendment was to "allow the VA to reimburse veterans for treatment in a non-VA facility if they have a third-party insurer that would pay a portion of the emergency care." read more

A woman on Monday accused Roy Moore of attempting to rape her when she was 16 during a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore she was approached by Moore in 1975 in a Gadsen, Alabama restaurant where she worked. One night, Nelson said Moore offered her a ride home in his car. Instead of getting on the highway, Moore parked in the back of the Olde Hickory House restaurant. Nelson said she was Moore what he was doing. "Instead of answering my question, Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me, putting his hands on my breasts," Nelson said. read more



ftl: In Hills, Iowa, a farmer kills his banker, his neighbor, his wife, and then himself. Near Ruthton, Minnesota, a farmer and his son murder two bank officials. In South Dakota's Union County, a Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) administrator kills his wife, daughter, son, and dog before committing suicide. In the note he leaves behind he claims the pressures of his job became too much for him to bear.

These tragic circumstances were the byproducts of a crisis that struck the American farm in the 1980s, a crisis that had tremendous human costs. Surveys revealed that cases of child abuse and neglect rose 10% in a nine-county rural area in southern Iowa during this period. Studies also showed an alarming rise in divorce rates and alcohol abuse in farm families. Some individuals broke under the strain of an economic disaster in America's rural heartland; many more who depended on American agriculture for their livelihood faced financial ruin.


anything else is therefore based on whim.

on another note: apparently you can fly anything you want on the same halyard as the US flag, but that is not my concern. my concern is proper respect at public properties only. again, i view "whims," in this context, on public property, as disrespectful and politicization.
solution? two:
1) there are 6 days recognized by congress that it must be flown; those should be codifed as the only days. no whims.
2) it's over, there is offically no longer Southeast Asia POW/MIA, take it down.


it seems America would rather keep wounds open to fester and grow. ...it's a business now, a profitable business. non-prof employees and CEOs DO get paid.
