    Nazis and White Supremacists in the Mainstream

    Since Donald Trump has been elected president, the hate groups seem to come out of the woodwork. The Klu Klux Klan and the neo-Nazis have been showing up to what should be peaceful rallies and causing harm and agitating crowds. They have been actively recruiting online, although a lot of them have went on the dark web, in order to remain hidden.

    The Quiet Battle To Return Pre-Existing Conditions to What It Was

    The Quiet Battle To Return Pre-Existing Conditions to What It Was

    There is a quiet war being waged on people with disabilities also known as a pre-existing condition. As a child, I knew about this war since getting covered for my type-1 diabetes was hard. Many people have pre-existing conditions. Heartless politicians want to make sure these people do not get coverage. The American Health Care Act is a step backwards even if they still cannot charge sick people more for insurance. The House has no idea what they are doing with regard to how this impacts people with pre-existing conditions. Insurers can stop covering, even for people with continuous coverage.

    2018 Will Be the Most Important Year in the History of Our Young Democratic Republic

    2018 Will Be the Most Important Year in the History of Our Young Democratic Republic

    A lot of America is hurting. Republican policies have shrunk the middle class, to the point where it really is almost nonexistent. It started with Ronald Reagan and "Trickle Down" economics, which America just fell for one more time, or rather, they will take the tax cut while things are going well. Deep down inside many are feeling uneasy about it. Sure, most of us will get a nice little tax cut, while really rich people and corporate America will get a HUGE tax cut, on the backs on hard working Americans. Trump argued during the campaign that the Obama economy was a "catastrophe" and now takes credit for every positive aspect of the now eight year long recovery, the one where President Obama was president for 7 years of. Heck, Trump took credit for the record stock market high a few days after he took office. Of course now as the markets are getting rocky and heading towards a Bear market, the man is silent. The man is a dangerous buffoon. The Republicans have dug in and are satisfied to try to control him as long as he keeps favorable poll numbers with the base, which he has, and as long as he doesn't become a complete political disaster, which he will be in the end. Hypocrisy knows no boundaries in the new Republican orthodoxy.

    Crisis Point

    Crisis Point

    Thinking back to the financial crisis of 2008, one would think that another such economic catastrophe would somehow elude us. It was just ten years ago that the United States plunged the world into the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression. Yet here we are, a decade later, no wiser and even more foolish. You would have thought that we would have learned from our mistakes, but time and time again, history proves that we are still prone to repeat mistakes of the past. When will we ever learn? Today, what we have is déjà vu of the 2008 financial crisis. So what we have now are almost the same set of circumstances that are poised to unleash an economic debacle more sinister and more devastating than the one in 2008. To understand how this is happening, we first have to look at what transpired leading up to the 2008 crash.
