G7 Globalist Fear Trump Trade Reset

trump-hillary-global-national

President Trump has announced that the U.S. piggy bank will no longer subsidize or be sucked dry to finance a pack of ungrateful allies. Keeping the Socialist EU afloat and putting up with backstabbers like Canada or allowing Japan to roll up massive trade surpluses must stop. The latest rumblings out of the UK are that all efforts are working overtime to nix the will of the Brit public from the Brexit vote. As for corporatists within the United States, the bulwark of opposition to Trump’s push to demand reciprocal treatment from “so called” trading partners means an end to the gravy train of plundering American workers and ripping off a viable domestic economy.

Government Required Business Licenses

What is the justification for government to require that business licenses are necessary to do business? While, when one dares to demand an answer to this basic question, you know a lawyer will step in to impose their viewpoint on the masses. According to LegalZoomLicenses are required for three main purposes:

  1. To identify your business and make sure you are accountable for your actions
  2. To protect the public health and safety
  3. To keep track of your finances for tax purposes

Seattle Head Tax a Destructive Idea

Headtaxpoll

Another day, one more government outrage. The social Do-Gooders in Seattle approves business tax for homelessness. You can hear the cries for social justice all the way from the heart of the grunge ghetto.

“The Seattle City Council has approved a tax on large businesses such as Amazon and Starbucks to fight homelessness.

The council on Monday unanimously backed a compromise tax plan that will charge large businesses about $275 per full-time worker a year. It’s lower than the $500-per-worker tax initially proposed.

The tax would begin in 2019 and raise about $48 million a year to pay for affordable housing and homeless services.”

Universal Guaranteed Income

What is next from the egalitarian socialists? A guaranteed income is becoming the new catch concept that is a desired destination for the limousine liberals. If you ask the tax payer, It’s time for America to embrace guaranteed income, their first response will be how do you pay for such a benefit? Intuitively they know they will most likely not be included in the scheme and when the obligation burden befalls on those dreaded 1%, you just know that class warfare is doing well on the two-hundredth birthday of Karl Marx. Based upon a recent SF gate poll, Majority of Millennials now favor universal basic income. Amazing the level of economic insanity that comes out of the asylums of higher learning.

Small Business is the Mainstay of the Economy

smallbusiness560

Business ventures are started for as many reasons as the individuals who take the risk to build their own future. Whether they openly acknowledge of not, making money is the key objective. Earning a profit keeps the enterprise in business. On a microcosm level an independent operation reflects the functions of the entire small business economy. Transnational conglomerates move the physical presence of their operations as often as hot money jumps the borders to gain a higher return on equity. Merchants invest in their own neighborhoods, become the leaders of their communities and active achievers in their own business endeavors.

What does it take to create living wage jobs?

livingwage

For those with the practical experience of being an employer, it is well established that in order for an enterprise to survive, profitability is a primary objective. Employing labor is a function of fulfilling a needed task and matching the skills of the worker with the ability of making or running equipment in order to produce the end product for sale. These conditions are the basics when applicants are hired. Putting aside cultural values of work itself, the methods for training the expertise to become productive are often overlooked by managers in the fast paced and changing work environment. Resolving this problem is the practical path on how to build a viable workforce, which in turn would go a long way to be able to pay a living wage.

China’s Trade War Against America

chinatradewar

The Chinese regime is the creation of the globalists. Going back to the Nixon era, Henry Kissinger set into motion a staged and preferential trading system that would inevitably build the Red Communists into the very model for global dominance. Approving China into the World Trade Organization guaranteed a distorted playing field by favoring PRC and allowing their draconian conditions to engage in business by Oriental Marxists. Even The Guardian reports that World trade rules too weak to stop China distorting market, “It is now clear that the WTO rules are not sufficient to constrain China’s market-distorting behavior.” The end result produced a perverse capitalism that merged with totalitarian oligarchists to distort, extort and circumvent any semblance of a legitimate free trading exchange.

Government Subsidized Medicine Bankrupt Hospitals

bankrupthospital

Hospitals are now government subsidized monopolies. They have little to do with improving the health of patients but have everything to do with dispensing pharmaceutical industry drugs and treatments. The net result is that small and rural hospitals must merge into mega facilities in order to achieve economy of scale or close altogether because fewer Americans can afford health insurance coverage. Federal and State subsidizes are mounting in a futile attempt to pay for the deficits that arise in providing medical costs for an aging population. This formula has only one outcome, BANKRUPTCY.

Brick and mortar stores vs. online sellers

BrickMortarOnline

For consumers who watched the Wal-Mart store spread throughout the countryside saw local small retailers became an endangered species. Now, some may relish the payback with the dominance of online juggernaut Amazon, who has a prime objective of closing down what remains of the brick and mortar stores. Both in the shopping center era and today with the direct delivery to your doorstep, the low cost seller proves to be the winner. What has changed is that government subsidies are fueling the carriage costs.

New York State Destroyer of Empires

nysbusiness

New York State was once the home of icon industries. General Electric in Schenectady, IBM in Binghamton, Kodak in Rochester and Bethlehem Steel in Buffalo were once major employers. Today such enterprises are a mere shadow of their past glory, shell companies or virtually out of business. Bad decisions and inflexible adaptations certainly had much to do with their demise. However, persistent negative and adverse government policies from Albany and the NYS financial cabal in New York City has pushed and allowed the de-industrialization of Upstate economies. Even harder hit are small businesses who have struggled for several decades to simply survive.
