http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20190905-how-localisation-can-solve-climate-change Wow, so while we were fearing that the globalists will push their way forward with use of climate change, the agenda just got turned inside out (although it may take politicians awhile to refocus their efforts). Of course only a world government could possibly enforce this. Bonus: it could even fit right in with […]

“The use of money is all the advantage there is in having money.” Benjamin Franklin, Necessary Hints to Those that would be Rich (1736). While I was talking with friends who were playing an online game, one boasted about how rich he was with virtual currency. He had incredibly amounts of money in this game […]
Fox and others have pulled Trump’s ads on the caravan and that scumbag copkiller, due to liberal outrage. So, did he get his money back? Inquiring minds want to know! Preview Open
I’ve long been a believer that you ante up for things you believe in. If you liked a restaurant but never went back, you can’t be sad when it closes. Same thing with a show, a band, a product, or company. Ideas and thinkers, which are the basis for political persuasion, take on an even […]
This is a good pitch. In order to make this happen, (& I think the founders have acknowledged this) Ricochet needs to expand the style of programming available. And in order to make THAT happen, Ricochet needs more money coming in (hence, this pitch to those not already members). Preview Open
Need a break from the memo frenzy? Have some martinis with us! Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of seeing the Democratic National Committee with less than half a million dollars on hand heading into the midterms while Republicans have $40 million ready to go. They also shake their heads as Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan wants to opt out of the Trump’s administration’s plans for offshore energy exploration, a move made much easier by government already granting an exemption for Florida. And they bang their heads against the desk as PolitiFact hired unhinged former Florida Rep. Alan Grayson to be part of their team, only to reverse course after liberals and conservatives howled in protest. Jim and Greg also share their unvarnished thoughts on Groundhog Day and offer their Superbowl predictions.
“Wanna buy some greeting cards?” With sales technique like that, how could I possibly fail? Turns out… thoroughly. Didn’t sell a single card. Or a single seed. Or a single anything else I ever tried selling door to door, after reading about how much money I could make in the back of Boy’s Life. And I tried them all. Well, except Grit. I had never actually seen a copy of Grit, and I had the idea that it might be tough to sell.
I was a kid-sized Ralph Kramden, always pursuing one get-rich-quick scheme after another. But unlike Ralph, I was occasionally successful, which is one of the reasons that I tried selling so many things door to door. Because my first time out had been such a success.
At least that’s what caller ID said. The guy was very cordial (more so than I was I’m afraid – why do those calls always seem come when I’m in the middle of something else?). I found it interesting that the pitch was about how unfair the media was being to Donald Trump and that […]
As you all know by now because I love to talk about myself, I am a mom. (Want to hear about my childhood? Okay! Want to see 1200 pictures of me? Okay!) Anyway, now that my child is in college, I’ve been looking back on things. Being a mom changes a person. It makes you […]
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the pressure mounting on the Democratic National Committee to spend big on every special House election, despite long odds in most of them. They also unload on University of California-Berkeley administrators for cancelling a speech by Ann Coulter over security concerns instead of cracking down on students and faculty threatening to disrupt the event. And they address the latest twist in leftist conspiracy theories, as liberals contend Rep. Jason Chaffetz decided not to seek re-election because he’s being blackmailed by Russia.
Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for Tuesday, October 11, 2016. It’s the “Hillie Sutton: Go Where the Money Is” edition with our exclusive interview with Washington Examiner’s Michael Barone. We come to you in the wake of the second presidential debate in which Donald Trump is viewed by many as having calmed the outrage connected to the release Friday of his Crotch Grab interview – which had the media in a feeding frenzy and scared Republicans running away from Donald anew. We’ll talk about the debate and we’ll discuss the Crotch Grab interview released Friday.

Fellow member Dave S. posted a short note this morning about the government forcing ITT to shut down its technical school operation. In it he asks “Do they actually hold other private ‘not-for-profit’ institutions to the same standard or I am just falling in to the trap of ‘this administration can do no right?'”
The reality is that Progressives really do not care whether an organization is “for profit” or not. What they care about is getting their cut, both of control and money. They have turned the Federal government into an organized crime extortion ring. The Department of “Education” goes after trade schools and charter schools. The Department of “Justice” goes after churches and other religious organizations who don’t play ball on abortion or ObamaCare. The IRS harasses conservative political organizations.
In this case, post secondary education in America is the new Industrial Titan. Americans spend $1.1 trillion on “education” every year. And a lot of people are making a profit.
Have you ever wondered what you would do if someone offered you a small fortune? We’re not talking Bill Gates money, or Donald Trump Money, and certainly not Clinton Foundation level cash. Just imagine if you somehow cleared around $5 – $10 million. What would you do with it? Would you quit your job? Would […]
An excerpt, translated from the Spanish original: Luis Calvo used to say that, if the Spaniard is the man of “suffer it”, the Englishman is the man of “fix it”. Thus it happened, for instance, when the English went up to the hill of regicide, revolution, and dictatorship with Cromwell, rectifying it afterwards with a […]
The losers in government want to change our money. It’s not politically correct! They want more women! It’s not enough for them that Barbara Bush is on the $1 bill. They don’t want so many dead white men. Now, I love money. I’m huge with money. And when I’m president, America will have the greatest money, I […]
Since we’ve all had fun with RightAngles post about fame, and so many people here seem to have a wealth of great stories, I thought I’d try to come up with something that will inspire people again. Were you the fat kid who ate paste? Or were you the bully who picked on him? Were […]
