Normally administrations tout all their new priorities in their first budget. But the Fiscal Year 2022 request is coming when it is least likely to be seen, the Friday before Memorial Day. Perhaps that is because the president has already enacted or proposed $6 trillion in spending – dwarfing a roughly $1.5 trillion annual discretionary spending budget.

Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country. William L. Brandt, Jr. contributed to the manpower of our great nation in the United States Army. A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the size of his heart. Bill was a simple man, a good man who loved life’s little things... Read more →

Congressional Candidate Harold Earls Responds to the Upcoming Federal Unemployment Opt-Out in Georgia

Harold Earls, his wife and two children (photo provided) ROSWELL, GEORGIA —a Georgia Governor, Brian Kemp, announced the state will be opting out of the federal unemployment benefits that were put in place to help those whose jobs were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The immediate response of ‘the federal government’ was overwhelming. Our businesses are struggling because the Biden administration is encouraging a ‘hand-out’ society. It’s rife with corruption, and the by-product is a new non-working class. I believe that the Governor’s decision to opt-out of the 300 extra dollars a month of federal unemployment will encourage those not working to actively seek out new employment and in turn, keep our local economy moving.

Expert Tips to Raise,Teach & Guide Kids in 2021 Parental roles have fluctuated throughout modern history. Going back to World War II, mothers were forced to shift from housewife to breadwinner as fathers went off to war. In the decades following the war, many households returned to traditional roles, though that changed again later in the century with more women entering the workforce. Fathers had a more active role in the raising of their children as responsibilities were split between the parents. COVID has shifted that paradigm once again. Many fathers transitioned to working from home, or unfortunately, not working at all. Both, however, presented fathers with greater opportunities to not only spend more time with their children, further strengthening their natural bonds, but also have a more proactive role in their raising. With the end of the pandemic in sight and the world returning to normalcy, fathers are now... Read more →

Guest Opinion: Dishonoring Martin Luther King's Legacy

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on how Rev. Martin Luther King’s work is being undermined: The legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King is being dishonored on a daily basis. Those who are trashing his noble record are not white supremacists; Martin Luther King rather, they are professionals who claim to be fighting racism. These people work primarily in education, law, and the media. Regrettably, they are as heavily populated in the for-profit sector of the economy as they are the non-profit sector. It was in King’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech where he articulated his vision of America. While he made several references to problems that blacks were faced with, ranging from discrimination in public accommodations to police brutality, he did so against the backdrop of respect for the American commitment to liberty, equality and justice for all. Indeed, his “dream” was based... Read more →

Selling idle machinery is a smart way to prevent losses in business

Machinery and equipment installed for manufacturing or allied activities need proper utilization to benefit from the installed capacities by maximizing output. However, not all machines have the same utilization level as some machines have more use than others and some other machines remain unused for a long time. Ideally, full utilization of all assets like machinery and equipment should be the goal of businesses which means thinking carefully about proper utilization before buying any equipment. Furthermore, since purchase machinery and equipment involves capital expenditure, the return on investment depends on adequate utilization of the machines. However, it is never always possible to ensure complete utilization of all machinery and equipment because of the changing business needs, which often render some assets idle. What to do with idle assets Idle assets become financial burdens as it locks up the investment without giving any returns, and it affects the book of accounts... Read more →
