The number of defaulted federal student loans hit a new high in 2016: about 8 million borrowers have given up paying on more than $137 billion in education debts.
“Juxtapose that over people we put in the military to carry M16s and other weapons with the intent of defending our freedoms and killing people,” said the Governor. “If they’re old enough to do that they’re probably old enough to get some training and carry a concealed weapon.”
Government’s meddling in the healthcare business has been disastrous from the get-go.
Why did The Nazis avoid invading The Swiss? What made General Patton a greater war commander than Hitler? Why have the world’s greatest superpowers of the late 20th Century failed in securing control of the Middle East?
All these questions have the same answer and it is this same answer I give to people who inquire into the issue of national defense in a free society. The answer is that decentralized military forces are generally stronger, more resilient, more agile, and more adaptable than centralized military forces.
As competition amongst businesses in many industries stiffens, blockchain technology is likely to become even more in-demand in the years to come. While there are many competing blockchain programs out there, with the backing of the EEA by so many high profile companies, it stands to reason that Ethereum could become the go-to as more businesses seek to incorporate the technology.
Way to think through the problem… good job kid.
Nursing student Brittany Diggs has spoken out about being kidnapped, explaining how she managed to escape from the trunk of her car after being taken as she walked to her apartment. “I remember seeing a video on Facebook” about how to find a trunk’s release latch, she told the “Today” show. “So I got the bright idea to use my insulin pump light.”

Of course, budget cuts are needed, these don’t sound too bad… for a start.
Look forward to hearing more numbers and the debates.
In the long run, I am not sure any of it will actually amount to much considering the way Trump has handled health care repeal, which is now health care “reform.”
And while the “conservatives” that voted for him should be hopping mad about it, we don’t seem to hear too much resistance on accepting the current plan.
Or is there and we aren’t hearing about it?
Only the outline of Trump’s budget was released last week, the so-called “skinny budget” that new presidents present to outline their spending priorities. The line-by-line budget dealing with taxes and entitlements is due in May. Congress will spend all summer arguing about it. If history is any guide, very few of the skinny budget’s numbers will be adopted. Already senators are declaring parts of it “dead on arrival.”
What’s the right way to define good tax policy? There are several possible answers to that question, including the all-important observation that the goal should be to only collect the amount of revenue needed to finance the legitimate functions of government and not one penny above that amount.
But what if we want a more targeted definition? A simple principle to shape our understanding of tax policy?
I’m partial to what I wrote last year.
…the essential insight of supply-side economics…when you tax something, you get less of it.
“Unfortunately politics rears its ugly head.”
Yep, that’ll happen.
Johnson’s point, that implementation would create a “mental culture to not pick up a gun,” may or may not prove to be true. Regardless, it doesn’t diminish the fact that repeat violent gun offenders should be taken off the streets; the longer, the better. Unfortunately politics rears its ugly head.
Case in point is top American arms maker Remington Outdoor Co., which earlier this month laid off 120 workers at one of its plants in upstate New York. Trump’s victory, which has likely eased anxiety over stronger gun laws, has impacted the company’s handgun sales, the WSJ reported. Industry sales declines at the moment is “a dynamic from which Remington is not immune,” a company spokeswoman said.
