Freedom In America – Thinking About The 4th of July 2016

Freedom In America – Thinking About The 4th of July 2016

In a recent conversation with my son, now only 20 years old. I was confronted with several very true issues in the way different generations think about the changes that have taken place in America. The question is, has the move to Socialism in America over the past 8 years been a good thing. Barack Obama told America he was going to Socialize America and effectively; if you look at it now, he has. I think … Read entire article »

11 Million Spent Half of Their Income on Rent. Why the Government Is to Blame.

A recent report out of Harvard University has found the number of struggling household renters at an all-time high. A table in the appendix of the report shows that almost half (49.3 percent) of renters in 2014 spent at least 30 percent of their household income on housing costs. Why are so many spending so much? The report acknowledges that part of the blame for the high rent falls on “local land-use regulations—such as zoning requirements, density and height restrictions, and minimum lot size and parking requirements.” These regulations limit property owners and developers in how they are allowed to provide rental housing to customers. The authors also state that “the steep rents for new units reflect rising land and development costs, which push multifamily construction to the high end of the market,” the end … Read entire article »

Social Security Programs Face Depletion in Near Future

Social Security’s programs are in deep trouble. According to the just-released 2016 report of the Board of Trustees for the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Federal Disability Insurance Trust Funds, both programs’ trust funds will be depleted in the near future—old-age and survivors insurance in 2035 and disability insurance in 2023. Trust Fund Depletion Should Congress neglect Social Security reform until the trust funds are fully depleted, the Social Security Administration would only be authorized to pay those benefits that could be financed from payroll taxes alone. Disability insurance beneficiaries would face an 11 percent cut in benefits beginning in 2023, and old-age and survivors insurance beneficiaries would see their benefits cut by 23 percent beginning in 2035 (see page 66 of the trustees’ report). The longer Congress waits, the deeper the benefit cuts would … Read entire article »

Libertarian ticket drops a nickname on Clinton, Trump

Anna Giaritelli Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and his running mate Bill Weld released a lighthearted ad on Twitter Wednesday night that explains the differences between the two of them and the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates. “Difference between the two of us and the other candidates running for president is that we’ve been there,” Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, said. “And done that,” the former Massachusetts governor chimed in, hinting at Donald Trump’s lack of political experience and Hillary Clinton’s never having governed a state. Both two-term governors touted balancing budgets, battling corruption… examinerpolitics.com … Read entire article »

The truth (so far) behind the 2016 campaign

On March 23, 2015, in a college auditorium in Virginia, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to announce his campaign for president. From then until now — a span of 465 days — PolitiFact has been watching the candidates and fact-checking their claims. Through June 29, we have published 650 fact-checks of the presidential candidates on our Truth-O-Meter. That’s more than one new fact-check a day, and as you can imagine, a lot of Mostly False, False and Pants on Fire claims. We get asked all the time how the candidates compare. We often fret the question because we … >>More … Read entire article »

Mailbag: PolitiFact is 'wrong, wrong, wrong'

As the presidential primary season morphed into the general-election campaign, readers have showered PolitiFact with letters about fact-checks of the presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Here’s a sampling of the emails we’ve received recently. *** Several readers with varying perspectives wrote us about our fact check of Clinton saying, in reference to how she handled her State Department emails, that “it was allowed.” We rated that False on May 31 after the release of a State Department inspector general’s report. Prior to that report’s release, we felt there were too many unknowns to put Clinton’s … >>More … Read entire article »
