Tweet (Akiit.com) The Texas school massacre was the latest in a familiar ritual. There’s a hideous massacre. It’s followed by loud calls from much of the public for Congress to do something and do something fast about passing tougher gun control legislation. The calls for action are backed up by polls that show again that […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) It used to be enough to just defeat Democrats in elections, vanquish them from the halls of government and the republic was safe from those who seek to destroy it. Of course, that was back before the Democrat Party became an entity seeking to destroy the country, so that might have been a […]

‘The Simpsons’ Rails Against Capitalism.

Tweet (Akiit.com) Fox’s cartoon “The Simpsons” just concluded Season 33 on May 22 with a rip-roaring attack on capitalism and how the middle class has been shredded.

Tweet (Akiit.com) PlayStation, Nintendo and Xbox — we all recognize these names and know the iconic brands that are behind them (Sony and Microsoft). In fact, almost every American has probably had their hands on one of their controllers at some point. The gaming industry and game systems themselves have advanced since the days of […]

One of the largest cryptocurrencies is dead. Where do we go from here?

They suffered a setback Monday when a […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) In this administration, it’s always someone else’s fault. Inflation is now the No. 1 concern of voters, so the White House first blamed COVID. Then Donald Trump’s tax cuts. Then Vladimir Putin. Then meatpackers and the poultry industry, Big Oil and pharmaceutical companies. Now, Democrats have identified a new inflation scapegoat: plastic. Visa, […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) (***1/2) Not sure what they paid Tom Cruise for making this Top Gun sequel. But whatever it was, it’s not enough. He carries this behemoth action/drama on his shoulders and well deserves a great big pay day. Back in 1986, cadets at a U.S. Navy elite fighter pilot school were rivals competing for respect. One […]
