New Site Owner. Thoughts from Kos

Well TCC has been saved and I for one, am breathing a sigh of relief!  The amount of research and hard work done here is truly phenomenal and I was saddened when Suzie's felt she could no longer hold the reigns.  What if that disappeared forever?!  (omg!)  Thankfully prayers are answered so the question that's being posed to me is "Kos, will you change the site?"?  I would easily say 100% of what you see is what will remain.  What I would like to do though is add a few…

Immigration And Submarine Ballast Tanks

A comment (or two or six) on immigration which may not be cared for by readers BUT may spur some debate or who knows, maybe a post or two here on 912CQ.

  • Baby boomers are reaching retirement age.  It's simple economics that people 55+ do not spend as much in the system so "some people" believe they need to be replaced; if not by a birth…

Todays Job Numbers - Economic Chartapalooza

The new non-farm payroll job numbers announced this morning shocked everyone and I knew immediately that some in mainstream media (MSM) and blogisphere would do their level best to highlight any bad areas within the report which could be found - because you know it's Obama's evil administration who is…

School Lunch Propaganda And Whining

Seriously folks, school lunches have always been horrible.  I chuckle as people point at Michelle Obama as if it's all her fault.  Whatever happened to common sense in the United States?  It's the SCHOOL that selects the food menu, what vendor they purchase it from and how it is prepared.  To point a finger…

Side Effects May Include

I understand that Ebola is a horrible virus with a high mortality rate.  I get it that it broke out in an area of the world that is horribly under served with medical professionals, facilities, lack of knowledge and funds.  I realize it's transmittable by bodily fluids.  Check, check and check.

What I don't get is why the media has once again, place sooooo much air time into reporting this outbreak but yet chooses to ignore the ongoing deaths within our own country each and every…

Dear Mr. Goodell. 28 Arrests Since Superbowl?

You sir, are the Commissioner of the highest-grossing sports league in the world.  Not a underling, not a sales rep but the Commissioner.  The buck must stop with you, your policies and code of conduct.

The NFL, a enormous cash cow, reaped over an estimated $9 Billion in revenue from it’s various…

Politics And Wealth By Religious Affiliation

The outstanding research never ceases to amaze me when it comes out of PEW Research and just what can be gleaned of the data, as done here by TobinGrant at Religionnews.

Take these two graphs compiled by polling 32,000 Americans on their religious leaning, income level and political belief.  Click images to enlarge.  It's no small wonder why…

Russia, China And The U.S. Dollar Reserve Currency

The enormous cash flow circling the globe can be difficult for most to truly comprehend and it is simply easier for some to panic and call for the fall of the greenback as the world’s reserve currency however this fear call is far from reality and the U.S. Dollar certainly would not go down without a fight.  Some have been predicting just that for decades and thus far have…

Paul Ryan: Trust Me - I'll Tell You Later

This morning, still waiting for the caffeine from my Earl Grey to kick in, I caught a clip on CNBS CNBC where Paul Ryan was being interviewed about immigration reform. 

Looking like the quintessential GOP candidate, he went on to complain about what's been done "by this administration" (what about the past administrations Paul?) and all about the horrible consequences and expense being…

Liar Liar Pants on Fire

It's difficult at time (ok, all of the time) to read between the lies lines when a politician makes a bold statement or declaration of "fact".  The first two things that spring to mind for me are

  • Are their statements backed up by…

Knowing Just "Who" Is Watching You

I hemmed and hawed about writing this post.  I dilly dallied.  I debated.  I pondered because it seems to me that Americans nowadays are especially prone to "fear", possibly more than any time in our history.  Maybe past Wars infused such great pride in our strength as a nation, we collectively had the belief that no one could defeat us.  Fear of other cultures overtaking ours.  Fear of other faiths or religions.  Fear of terrorism.  Fear of our own government. Fear of basically anything…

Bye Bye Yellowstone If Cruz And Cronies Have Their Way

But hey, it's alright; it's Capitalism, right?  Yes, that's definitely sarcasm on my part when blatant crony capitalistic (political) moves such as this trigger my gag reflex as Ted Cruz does yet once again.

On Tuesday, Cruz…

Life w/o Parole For Marijuana. When The 3-Strikes Rule Fails

I realize "why" the three-strikes rule was put in place and for violent offender, it is a valid tool to get them (and keep them) off of our streets.  I also, myself, do not partake of "wacky tobacky" although I did as a teen and know many who still partake today.  To each their own.

I still, for the life of me, fail to see how the three-strike rule for…

When Your Faith Can Get You Fired

Recently we witnessed what is being called the "Hobby Lobby" decision where Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) declared a corporation, who is family owned and whose principles are faith based, does not have to include birth control contraceptive measures to it's employees under the terms of the Affordable Care Act.  Immediately following the decision, …

Mitt vs Hillary In 2016?

The 2016 Presidential election is going to be a very difficult one for me if this turns out the case.  I will explain "why" (at least a bit) after the quote.

This from Robert Reich's Facebook page:

While in Salt Lake City yesterday I heard from someone who lives down the street from Mitt Romney (one of several Romney homes across America) about an unusually large number of limos congregating…

Let's Return To 1960

Can we go back to 1960?  Oh how I wish; especially when it comes to heated debates of minimum wage.  I grow tired of reading "inflation adjusted" minimum wage, blah blah blah.  It's going to kill small business.  yada yada yada.  Give me a break.  We all know prices have skyrocketed while packaging sizes have shrunk so let's look at some hard numbers.  The Fed ignores food and energy at every turn.  It's a rigged game so one has to look at prices to live, to survive each day vs. minimum…
