The federal government will hit the debt ceiling on December 31.

The day of reckoning looms: The federal government will hit the debt ceiling on December 31.

The treasury will do things to stall the inevitable crash, but in the end, our elected leaders – backed by the voters — are doing nothing to solve this debt problem. (On this note, consider the absolute refusal of this Democrat to consider any spending cuts in negotiations with the Republicans.) The crash is coming.


Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

  • I’d take the $400,000 soak the rich deal Obama is offering in exchange for a cut in the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25% in order to simulate job growth. Obama promised such a cut months ago, so he might just go for it. If the House Republicans insist on no tax increase for anyone, Obama will just let the Bush tax cuts expire and blame the Republicans. The economy will tank and the Republicans will get killed in the 2014 mid-term elections–making Pelosi Speaker of the House once again. With the Dems in control of both houses of Congress, the Obamanistas will run wild. Think Obamacare is bad? God help us if this comes to pass. Sometimes its better to take a small piece of the loaf than dig in one’s heels and starve. To those Republicans who oppose Boehner’s attepts to get a compromise “on principle,” I suggest you look at the bigger picture. A guy named Hoover stood on principle and look what that led to.
