Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com, The Tax “Reform” bill working its way painfully out the digestive system of congress like a sigmoid fistula, ought be re-named the US Asset-stripping Assistance Act of 2017, because that’s what is about to splatter the faces of the waiting public, most of whom won’t have a personal […]

America’s ‘Fake’ Stability & Boobs On Credit

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog, Do you ever hear something so startlingly mind numbingly ridiculous you realize it must be a sign things have gotten so fucked up something has got to give?

Philly’s Soda Tax Is Shaping Up To Be An Epic Flop

Authored by Ernest Owens via PhillyMag.com, It’s been six months since the city’s soda tax (or, more accurately, the sugary beverage tax) was implemented — and it’s off to a rocky start. The city is currently $20 million short of its projected $46 million goal to close out the 2017 fiscal year, and based on […]

When Mother Jones Was Investigated For Spreading “Kremlin Disinformation”

Authored by Mark Ames via ExiledOnline.com, Mother Jones recently announced it’s “redoubling our Russia reporting”—in the words of editor Clara Jeffery. Ain’t that rich.

Here Are The States With The Highest Property Taxes

ATTOM Data Solutions has scoured county-level property tax records from across the country to figure out exactly who is getting punished the most on their real estate taxes.  To our complete ‘shock’, the resulting map looks eerily similar to the 2016 presidential electoral college map with the liberal bastions of the Northeast and Midwest suffering […]

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog, If you prefer fake news, fake data, and a fake narrative about an improving economy and stock market headed to 30,000, don’t read this fact based, reality check article. The level of stupidity engulfing the country has reached epic proportions, as the mainstream fake news networks […]

NYC Rents No Longer ‘Too Damn High’ As Landlord Concessions Soar

After years of gouging the precious, Ivy League snowflakes that flood Manhattan every summer with nothing but their $10 million inheritance checks, a dream and the Faconnable shirts on their back, New York City landlords, courtesy of the flood of new apartment supply coming online, are being forced to offer record-high rent concessions to attract […]

Rahm Emanuel Tells Democrats To Stop Crying, Bend Over For “Long Haul” – Then Offers Subversive Advice On Dirty Politics

Apparently Stanford University is putting on a week of elite liberal inspirationalists to help the tender psyches of turtleneck wearing “compliant and unawares” recover from the depths of despair. I imagine that miserable couple on the plane to Portland were in attendance – both wearing jeans and faux-buckle loafers with no socks. In a sermon to the fractured cult of Jobs on Monday, Justice Ginsburg put […]
