Prolonged uncertainty will continue to limit hiring and minimize commitment to long-term capital expenditures. Only a very few large corporations with plans already on the books to expand capacity will take advantage of this temporarily accelerated tax break. This plan enables an acceleration of depreciation allowances which businesses would deduct over time, as such implementations fit into corporate long-term plans.

Congress should pull evidence on how and how much responsibility has been delegated to each executive, and how the process is in turn pushed down the various lines of command.
Saturday, January 16, 2010 Nantucket's Cape Wind Whips Up Hypocrisy
After the recent push from the White House and Congressional Democrats for Cap and Trade legislation, and for a Copenhagen Agreement, it is ironic that the Kennedy clan and its Massachusetts friends are campaigning against the Cape Wind project.
Tuesday, December 29, 2009 Napolitano -" Incompetence In Ascendance
One Canadian newspaper in April 2009 asked, in reference to Napolitano, "Can someone please tell us how she got her job?" The question today should be asked of the President, "How can someone this incompetent retain her job, and why has the task become so unimportant?"
Saturday, December 19, 2009 Tiger Woods -" The Hazards Of Assumptions

Political correctness and economic forces will prevent discussion on the root cause of stress on the earth's oceans, air, forests, rivers, and lakes. No one in Copenhagen will breathe a word about the world's population.
Wednesday, December 2, 2009 Transforming Perceptions Of Reality
Taxpayers deserve better from their Fourth Estate and from their politicians. If this transformation of perceptions doesn't end soon, the result will be an irreversible transformation of America.
Monday, November 16, 2009 Show Trial Goes To New York
Fanaticism is deaf to all pleadings, be they judicial, political or personal entreaties. Pretending that a federal civil trial will be a victory against terrorism is flailing against an ill wind, and will accomplish little but inflate the self-righteous.

America's power and influence has generated kick-back that has been fomented within the UN where jealousy found broad fertile ground amongst a majority of member nations, including Europeans such as Norway, Denmark.
Saturday, October 17, 2009 The Obama Nobel Is Not About Peace
Obama's upcoming acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize and the invisible strings attached to it, while he is quite entitled to claim it, along with his plans for Cap and Trade, may prove to be an enormously expensive exercise for all taxpayers on this continent.
Monday, September 28, 2009 Obama's Misstep On Iran
The signals showered on Americans and their allies by this Administration's decisions and announcements are confusing, but to Russia, they seem to be welcome and they reinforce its strategy of saber rattling. Sanctions have not deterred Iran's ayatollahs.

When the constitutionality of any far reaching federal law is opposed, it is a matter of national relevance, however, when a law affecting the foundation of the Democracy is challenged, such event should be arousing everyone's notice and should be at the forefront of all news media outlets.

Through a century of market ups and downs, interest rate fluctuations, mergers, acquisitions, political influence, lobbying and positioning insiders to the most powerful government and government related institutions, the Kings of Wall Street have nurtured and advanced their isolated power to a point where they are responsible to no one.
Friday, July 31, 2009 Government Capping Compensation?
Government intervention has reduced competition in the banking sector, allowing the favored few bailout- receiver- therefore-government- backed behemoths to attract investor support, and has enabled their acquisitions of not so fortunate competitors. "-"-
Sunday, July 26, 2009 Government vs. Capitalism

With that level of insight you can now go out and make major decisions for your own future, such as, whether or not to buy a house, upgrade your car, perhaps even fly to Europe on the wings of hope. No?
Monday, July 13, 2009 Goldman Sachs: Thank You Mr. President
Regarding this nastiness of the past week, please do not be too concerned about all this talk surrounding our super high-speed fully automated transaction processors. Also please understand that they are our future. Admittedly, we are enamored with the technological prowess we have acquired. Don't believe those jealous rumors coming from begrudging low-level corners of the financial community, whining about our "edge."
Saturday, July 11, 2009 Obama's Russian Misadventure
The Moscow trip was not a favorable photo-op as it turned out, with Putin doing his best to appear nonplussed, and the meetings seemed to have accomplished nothing of substance. What was the point?

China has created a massive middle class in a single generation, but it has yet to empower it. China will not soon be supplanting Americans, or Europeans, in the mall line-ups yearning for China-made American invented branded and engineered products. American consumers are unconsciously pushing back the clock on that empowerment of the Chinese middle class through their dramatic behavior modification of the past year.
Friday, July 3, 2009 Dear Mr. President: Thanks Again For Cap And Trade
We note that some of our other friends on Wall Street are very preoccupied, as we write this letter, coming up with new and extremely creative financial tools which they expect to launch upon the Bill's passing. They look forward to a whole new set of opportunities opening up for them, replacing the ones eclipsed by the
