Tweet (Akiit.com) Other than the commercials that used to come on during daytime TV or Saturday mornings about special edition, commemorative coins for collectors, I never thought much about the United States Mint, the Mint for short. I’m going to venture to say I’m like most people in that regard; the Mint isn’t top of […]

Can Congress Really Use Insider Information to Trade Stocks?

Tweet (Akiit.com) Members of Congress use privileged information to make money on the stock market, while they’re supposed to be working for you. Make no mistake, it’s legalized corruption. There’s no good reason for elected officials to trade individual stocks at all. Unless you have special insider knowledge, buying and selling individual stocks is a terrible way […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) “Everyone cheats” is a hell of a lesson for the nation’s kids. When it comes to professional sports it might be true. When everyone is at the top of their game, and there are millions of dollars on the line, everyone will look for an advantage. Some people will cross the line, and […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) By now you have heard what was forecast as the inevitable – all Senate Republicans and two Senate Democrats believe the Senate Filibuster Rule to be more significant than the right of millions of (actually all) Americans to participate in free and impartial elections.

Tweet (Akiit.com) Of the four restaurants Rick McQuaide owns across several counties in Western Pennsylvania, one is barely making a profit, two are losing money and the fourth has been “temporarily” closed for far longer than he ever anticipated. The 58-year-old small businessman from nearby Cambria County has one word for why he finds himself […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) There’s no sense in pretending that we don’t take pleasure in the total failure of our Marxist-curious party of the left. Through a combination of outright fraud, procedural irregularities, plus the total support of the garbage establishment and its failed institutions, the Democrats took power by the thinnest of margins and have proceeded […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) Last week, while reading The Wall Street Journal, I came across an op-ed piece that for a moment led me to believe that the sober and serious Journal was opening a comics section.
