She followed them wistfully.  I assume imagining what might have been.

Requiescat In Pacem, Rene.  You’ll have at least one fan to greet you.

Personal Finance Expert Ric Edelman Reveals Solution to the Social Security Crisis

Friday, July 27, 2018

Based on the principle of compound growth, the T.R.U.S.T. Fund for America calls for the government to set aside a one-time amount of $7,000 for each child born in the United States, and to repeat this annually for the next 35 years. The money would be placed in an investment portfolio determined by an expert panel appointed by the president and Congress. After 35 years, the government would receive back its initial outlay, plus inflation, and use the proceeds to fund the program for children born during the next 35-year cycle.

Win for Public Right to Know: Court Vacates Injunction Against Publishing the Law

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Industry Groups Want to Control Access to Legal Rules and Regulations San Francisco – A federal appeals court today ruled that industry groups cannot control publication of binding laws and standards. This decision protects the work of Public.Resource.org (PRO), a nonprofit organization that works to improve access to government documents.

That would be “funny” peculiar if you could know the standard a law was passed to enforce.  Anyone see where this trend takes us?  Secret laws to go along with secret (FISA) courts!

Argh!

Trump Calls Off Cold War II
PAT BUCHANAN • JULY 17, 2018 • 900 WORDS • 9 COMMENTS 

*** begin quote ***

Beginning his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, President Trump declared that U.S. relations with Russia have “never been worse.”

He then added pointedly, that just changed “about four hours ago.”

It certainly did. With his remarks in Helsinki and at the NATO summit in Brussels, Trump has signaled a historic shift in U.S. foreign policy that may determine the future of this nation and the fate of his presidency.

He has rejected the fundamental premises of American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and blamed our wretched relations with Russia, not on Vladimir Putin, but squarely on the U.S. establishment.

In a tweet prior to the meeting, Trump indicted the elites of both parties: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”

Trump thereby repudiated the records and agendas of the neocons and their liberal interventionist allies, as well as the archipelago of War Party think tanks beavering away inside the Beltway.

Looking back over the week, from Brussels to Britain to Helsinki, Trump’s message has been clear, consistent and startling.

NATO is obsolete. European allies have freeloaded off U.S. defense while rolling up huge trade surpluses at our expense. Those days are over. Europeans are going to stop stealing our markets and start paying for their own defense.

And there will be no Cold War II.

*** end quote ***

Certainly seems like a good meeting for us anti-war advocates.  

I personally hope that DJT45 closes down NATO and lets all its politicians and bureaucrats more onto more productive work.

It’s a good time to change the foreign policy of “world’s policeman” and institute a Swiss style MYOB.

NJ Veteran Claims Police Tried To Take His Guns Without Due Process

Monday, July 16, 2018

New Jersey now has a law on the books that allows the government to confiscate guns from anyone considered a threat without anything approaching due process. There’s a slightly more complicated process, but in its essence, that’s pretty much exactly what is at play.
