How to Make Money Without a Degree

By |May 7th, 2014|

Here’s another article saying that if you don’t go to college you are missing out on $830,000 of income. Holy crap! With information like that, I better start saving now to send my future kids to super expensive colleges!

As you know, I’m not a fan of the “send everyone to college” mentality that has prevailed over the last few

By |January 7th, 2014|

At some point in your life you may have come across a little post about how if we would just pay teachers as if they were babysitters, they would be some of the highest earning professionals in the country.

I’ve heard many teachers use this analysis as evidence that they aren’t paid well enough. For those who haven’t read it,

By |December 20th, 2013|

I had a reader ask my opinion on the Pope and his latest remarks regarding the economy. I don’t want to put words into anyone’s mouth, so I’ll present the question as it was written:
Hi Kevin! I would love to get your take on the anti-capitalist remarks made by Pope Francis! Do you think you could do a post

Obamacare Makes Being Uninsured a Viable Insurance Plan

By |October 22nd, 2013|

Now that Obamacare is going into full effect in 2014, people need to make a decision: should I try to get health insurance (if the Obamacare website ever starts working) or should I just pay the fine for not having insurance?

If you are young and healthy, it might make sense to just pay the fine.

The Constitution Wants Obama and Democrats to Negotiate

By |October 8th, 2013|

Here’s my hot sports (politics) opinion: Barack Obama is being absolutely ridiculous by refusing to negotiate with Republicans on the government shutdown (and soon the debt ceiling as well).

As most of you know, I’m a libertarian and I strongly dislike the policies of almost every president and congressmen that has been elected in my lifetime. I don’t pick sides

I’m Libertarian Because Unprovoked Violence is Wrong

By |July 24th, 2013|

When you are a politically active person in the United States who doesn’t identify with the Republican or Democrat party, those in one of the two main parties have a very hard time understanding you.

You may have read in the news that the Obama administration is delaying implementation of portions of Obamacare because they are too complicated and are simply not ready to go into practice on the timelines originally passed in the law.

While some portions are being delayed, other parts of the law are in full effect already. Now I’m just wondering;

President Barack Obama is about to unveil his budget proposal, and parts of his proposal have already made their way into the news. One of the aspects of his new budget is that he wants to prohibit anyone from saving more than $3,000,000 in an IRA.

The Four Most Important Things in an Economic Collapse or Natural Disaster

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you know I’m not a fan of the spending that going on in Washington D.C. right now.

I’m also not a fan of the spending that is scheduled to happen over the next few years. The government not only plans to keep spending more, but we are going to add

If you have been watching the news then you know that the federal government is going to be required to cut $85 billion out of their budget unless congress passes a law to avoid or change it before March 1st.

$85 billion is a heck of a lot of money. It’s so big it’s hard to understand what it really
