A reality …

We get into the aspects of the two COVID bills the Biden Administration is touting. As chants of the “next FDR!” harangue the listeners of corporate media, we ask what were his predecessors like?

We discuss the concept of investment into American industry by the American taxpayer. Why aren’t WE getting a dividend?

Abe discusses the system that brought us to this day. Today was supposed to be a formality. Well, whether it’s left or right, we’re going to see more.
