American Airlines now has its own incident and I don’t see the news headlines for this one like we saw with United. An employee of American Airlines hits a woman with a stroller while me pulls it out of her hands and the stroller almost hits the woman’s baby as well. After this incident the employee comes back on the plane and asks a passenger if he wants to fight and go at it. Also, the former king of cable news, Bill O’Reilly is fired from Fox News! In political news, Trump said in a Wall Street Journal interview on April 12th that he thinks the dollar is too strong!  This is why the focus of my show is on economics because the world is full of economic illiterates!  https://www.theguardian.com/world/video/2017/apr/22/american-airlines-employee-clashes-with-passenger-video

United Airlines was the topic of media discussion all last week with the bloody Dr. David Dao. There’re some simple solutions that could have prevented this horrible incident from ever occurring! Obviously compensation greater than $800 should have occurred to entice passengers to voluntarily give up their seats. Also, last minute changes to flight crews should be avoided when everyone had already boarded the plane. People are less likely to give up their seat when they’re already sitting it in. The media really has blown this United story to hell and back and most people need to take a step back and look at everything in it’s entirety. Some people like Senator Chris Van Hollan think a government law is the answer! Are you kidding me!?

Danielle DiMartino Booth has a new book out on the fed from an insiders perspective. She says many things that Austrians can agree with and other things where she doesn’t go far enough!  She says we shouldn’t get rid of the fed but rather just need more competent people in charge. John Tamny offers critiques on her book but John misses the point in many respects. John Tamny thinks we mainly don’t need a fed because it’s largely irrelevant as it is. The way Mr. Tamny sees how the banking system works would still depend on a federal reserve so I can’t agree with his analysis either.  There’re many opinions on the fed and it seems Ron Paul and Murray Rothbard are the most correct on this issue.

Elon Musk successfully launched and landed the recycled rocket, Falcon 9. This is such a perfect example of how the private sector does things better and far cheaper than anything the government can do. The private sector can launch a rocket at a price tag of $200,000 compared to NASA’s cost of $450 million!  Isn’t that insane!? The more money that goes to government than that’s more money that is just being pissed away to the inefficient and wasteful government! Government invests for a political return, not an economic one!

Paul Ryan pulled the vote expected vote for the republican healthcare bill. The republican party is at war with itself. We see the establishment types blaming conservatives for not falling in line. The republican healthcare bill was a disaster and this goes to show that all the republican votes to repeal Obamacare, while Obama was in office was a bluff!  The republicans never did want to fully repeal Obamacare!  Big government only continues to grow under the supposedly “small government” republicans.

The Federal Reserve raised interest rates for the 3rd time in 10 years at its March meeting. Most of the “experts” out there didn’t expect this rate hike until the week before!  Janet Yellen is more aggressive to raise interest rates simply because Trump is now the fall guy. Trump from his tweets has taken ownership of this economy from the political perspective. Meanwhile in Venezuela, things are getting worse…People are standing in bread lines and the government has decided to make standing in breadlines illegal! And they’re arresting bakers for overpriced bread! Yes, the insanity continues!

People are upset with what I had to say in regards to Indian reservations and capitalism. People today like to see themselves as victims. Once you see yourself as a victim you have already lost!  You have the power to change your thinking at any time and how you choose to let things effect you. Most people don’t get this and they settle for mediocrity in life. The latest jobs numbers released were the first to come out of the Trump presidency and they’re better than Obama’s last year in office. So there’s some optimism out there with a jobs number of 235,000 for February but we’re not out of the woods yet. We are nearing the point at which the bubble is popped and all the malinvestments come to the surface.


Trump addressed Congress for the first time and his speech had a very nationalistic and police state sort of vibe to it. The republicans that were against a big government when Obama was in office, now seem to be falling behind their leader supporting a $1 Trillion infrastructure program! President Trump also suggested five things that he wants to see done with healthcare and it really sounds like Obamacare lite! The only way to reduce the severity of our future economic crisis is to shrink the size of government and there’s no willingness to do this from either side of isle!

A local radio host at KCTR in Montana, Paul Mushaben, was taken out by the politically correct culture that’s overwhelming the politics of today! He has been indefinably suspended for pointing out the property destruction that has taken place when Native American basketball teams have played other schools in Montana. To boil this all down, what is it that has led to this sort bad reputation from these teams? Race has nothing to do with it!  It’s a lack of capitalism on Indian reservations. When socialism and government dominate society it literally destroys people! When the economic collapse in the United States comes this way, the people who have been sucking off the government teat for years will be in big trouble because they’re not capable of providing for themselves. And how will they react to this? Unfortunately, with violence.    


The stock market continues to hit record highs and the Dow is nearing in on its next target, a 21,000 point DOW. How much more will the markets go up before the big crash? That’s something hard to predict but gold and silver have also been on the rise. Gold is up nearly 8% in 2017 and silver is up 13%. Gold and silver are still not anywhere close to their record highs from 2011. With I high risk stock market, gold and silver at this point, is incredibly cheap insurance! Also, unpiloted flying drone taxis are coming to Dubai this July! This technology is amazing and shows the private sector at work making life better for everyone. Here’s a link to the drone video mentioned on the show. http://www.wsj.com/video/flying-drone-taxis-could-take-off-in-dubai/F329FEAC-2366-4796-9205-72C0344F17D0.html and here’s the article: http://www.economist.com/blogs/gulliver/2017/02/taxi-take-0
