The Jones Act is the hot trending topic of the day, and Larry Summers gave a very strong condemnation of it yesterday at the 2017 National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC) Fall Conference.
The event drew record attendance this year, and much of it is attributed to yesterday's opening session, a debate between former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and former Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers (or Larry Summers if you will)
The leader of the "Republican Revolution of 1994" ideologically sparred against the former Chief Economist and Vice President of the World Bank at the Sheraton Grand Chicago this morning on economic issues, primarily healthcare, which constitutes 18% of the economy.
The New England Patriots are probably the most polarizing and divisive sports franchise in America
. However, their polarization has been greatly overshadowed by a President who seemingly exists to incite chaos and provoke controversy, whenever possible.
Friday night, President Donald Trump took his methods to a new level of madness, even for him, as he went out of his way to attack the NFL in general, NFL Owner, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick
and any current NFL player who engages in National Anthem protests...
It won't have the same sizzle as Chelsea Handler versus Tomi Lahren, but it will certainly have substantially more steak. Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and former Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers will be here in Chicago next week to debate the Trump Administration's impact on economic growth.
The session, which focuses mostly on how Trumponomics is impacting our nation’s aging population, opens the 2017 National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC) Fall Conference
Despite what F. Scott Fitzgerald claimed, there are indeed second acts in American lives. People reinvent their public personas in grand and innovative styles all the time. Colin Kaepernick could be formulating his second act right now as he could be forced into it much earlier than anticipated.
It doesn’t look like he’s going to be getting a NFL job this year despite the fact that he’s
a.) still in his physical prime at age 29 and
b.) coming off a very solid season in which he was a respectable 17th in the NFL in passer rating and accomplished an elite 16-4 TD to INT ratio. The bad news for Kaepernick is that his prospects in football don’t look promising for this fall...
Right now, the fate of the country lies in the hands of "classic" or "throwback" Republicans. The Grand Old Party currently controls all three branches of government, but its "big tent" happens to include a lunatic fringe of "low information voters" and bigots that delivered the presidency to Donald Trump.
It's now up to the sane Republicans to try and wrestle power away from this subset, before they drive the entire country, and perhaps the world over the cliff.
Losing the popular vote by three million didn't end the political career of Donald J. Trump, so it's difficult to figure out what actually will.
The Robert Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election kicks into another gear this week, so maybe this will be the final turning point?
The stakes will be raised as Donald Trump Jr. is to be convened before a Senate special committee behind closed doors.
The "never Trump" crowd has banking on "Mueller time" to be what finally ends Donald Trump, and it very well may.
However, one must remember where we've been as we watch the Russia investigation unfold. Trump has already survived dozens of consequences that would have destroyed the political career of anybody that isn't Trump...
