The need for re-industrializing America

Franklin @ August 5, 2008 # 7 Comments

(Originally posted at my.barackobama.com) Beyond political discourse, we need to face the reality that America’s economy has been declining since mid 2001. The economic policies of the Bush administration did nothing to encourage the creation of new industries. If we use the image of an engine to represent the economy, what the Bush administration has […]

The Myth of Republican Fiscal Conservatism

Franklin @ November 30, 2007 # 13 Comments

Seeing Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney fight over who is more of a fiscal conservative made me think that they are actually barking up the wrong tree. You see, although the Republican Party claims to be the party of “small government”, and many fiscal conservatives vote Republican for that reason, the record shows that the […]

Franklin @ November 21, 2007 # 5 Comments

If Money is Power, the official data shows that the Bush administration has transferred power from the people to corporations at an alarming rate. The above chart shows the widening gap between corporate profits and salaries. If you want to see how dramatic this widening gap is, take a look at the following chart. The […]

CNN.com agrees with TheBankruptcyNews

Franklin @ November 8, 2007 # No Comment Yet

In clear evidence that there is a liberal media conspiracy against President Bush, CNN moved in to confirm with a poll that the American people are starting to feel the pain of the failed economic policies. The following article would prove that My blog is part of the liberal media (swear I did not know) […]

Does Pete Stark read thebankrupctynews.com?

Franklin @ October 20, 2007 # 3 Comments

During a debate on children’s health care Thursday, Rep. Pete Stark said “You don’t have money to fund the war or children, but you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off […]

The real economy

Franklin @ October 8, 2007 # 31 Comments

I wrote previously that, in constant dollars, the Dow Jones is far from a new high (actually, some 8% away). Those constant dollars, however, were based only on inflation data, which is statistical data and not actual market data. The following table shows the 2000 and 2007 prices in terms of different commodities. The calculation […]

President Bush, support our troops!

Franklin @ October 5, 2007 # 2 Comments

As a Commander in Chief, G.W. Bush managed to combine, all in one, the shortsightedness of Harry S. Truman with the incompetence of Lyndon B. Johnson and the dishonesty of Richard M. Nixon. When the First General of the Nation has no clear compass, moral or military, he needs to resort to political tactics to […]

In Bush We Trust

Franklin @ October 3, 2007 # 4 Comments

I’ve had it! Today, with the excuse of President Bush vetoing a measure to help insure the health of children, the blogsphere became a Bush-bashing festival. Guys! People! Stop this! I don’t buy the arguments that Bush is uncompassionate, insensitive or even evil. What kind of serious political argument is that? Those who compare what […]

Bush Aid to Mortgage Holders only Aids Wall Street

Franklin @ August 31, 2007 # 2 Comments

As I pointed out yesterday, the administration is using the current crisis to strengthen Wall Street’s position in the biggest land-grabbing scheme since the XIX Century. Although it’s hard to analyze what Bush actually wants to do (he only said he was going to do something in the future), there are some inferences than can […]
