There are only 5 days left for President Trump to fulfill a campaign promise. In truth, the easiest promise to fulfill given all of the promises and outlandish statements made during the campaign. End the visa worker abuse in this country which has decimated high paying jobs for college educated workers. Ordinarily I don’t pay much attention to the writings of Michelle Malkin. She seems in large part to be a creature born without a soul shilling for a party which sold out America for quarterly profits decades ago. I was therefore a wee bit shocked when it appeared she reached into the bowels of Hell in a desperate attempt to grab onto a fraction of a soul, any soul, to find out what having one felt like with this…

We’ve all heard the phrase attributed to FaceBook “Move quickly and break things.” Some people have turned it into a totally fraudulent development methodology called Agile. Today I got to have a lovely exchange with what could charitably be called “offshore support” from Dice.com. I had come across a posting of interest and wanted to identify all of the other pimps hawking the same contract. Why? Because, even though the pimp flagged the contract as “CON_IND” they don’t actually work 1099. This kind of abuse is rampant on Dice and it appears nobody gets punished for it. I dutifully included the link of the post which does not show up when searching for keywords contained within it, but does show up when you search for the title. I was very…

I don’t often run a stock I hold into the ground, but, you know, sometimes they piss you off so bad you just have to. When is the IRS going to start putting in prison the CEO and board of directors when companies don’t get required tax documents to tax paying citizens by the required dates? I mean, like most Americans I’ve given up on the U.S. Department of InJustice every putting a Wall Street criminal in prison. If Jamie Dimon isn’t serving double life for his role in the global mortgage fraud which triggered a global recession, justice will never be served, bought yes, but served no. This rant starts back in February. On the 8th I see a 1099 document listed in my on-line brokerage account. I quickly…

Those who know me know that I load BOINC on my desktop computers so I can give something back to society with their idle time. No, I’m not like the current GOP replacement for Obamacare which could be more aptly named “be rich or die.” Every person who has a desktop computer sitting at home can better the human race by contributing its idle time to the cure for cancer, mapping the human genome, fighting AIDs, Ebola or a rash of other things. Recently I added The Lattice Project to my list of joined projects. I have since disabled getting anymore work units from it. This has to be the biggest violation of the BOINC philosophy I have ever seen. Traditionally the philosophy of BOINC is to only take idle…

I have been seeing a good many crazy eyed frothing at the mouth type people spouting true and false things about the 24 million who would lose coverage under Trump Care. Most of them only get their news from propaganda sites and channels. The problem with skimming propaganda sites for snippets which feed the crazed eyed frothing of the mouth is that those sites don’t do any real analysis either, such as critically reading the report. In searching for the sensational they miss the truly important such as this item on page 33. Consists mainly of the effects of changes in taxable compensation on revenues. CBO also estimates that outlays for Social Security benefits would decrease by about $3 billion over the 2017-2026 period. Social Security benefits decrease when more…
