Segment 1:

Background – Owen

  • Born and raised in Cincinnati and currently Finance/Accounting student at the University of Cincinnati

  • Hobbies: chess, reading

Current Student Debt

Department of Education

  • https://www2.ed.gov/about/overview/fed/role.html

    • The original Department of Education was created in 1867 to collect information on schools and teaching that would help the States establish effective school systems.

    • In 1980, Congress established the Department of Education as a Cabinet level agency.

      • It was Jimmy Carter’s quid pro quo for getting the teachers Union support in the 1976 election.

    • “One final note: while ED's programs and responsibilities have grown substantially over the years, the Department itself has not. In fact, the Department has the smallest staff of the 15 Cabinet agencies, even though its discretionary budget alone is the third largest, behind only the Department of Defense and the Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, the Department provides over $150 billion in new and consolidated loans annually.”

  • In 2010 under BHO the Federal Government takes over all student loans.

    • Total student debt doubled that year alone!

    • The federal takeover was to save $62 billion by getting rid of the banks “profit motive”

    • As of 2015 the costs actually increased by $27 billion (30% increase)

“Forgiveness”

Very similar to housing crisis

  • Loans given to people with very little chance of ever repaying them

  • PS: The Biden administration has resurrected the Clinton program that caused the housing bubble

    • FHA/Ginnie Mae securing bad loans!

Segment 2

Topics for Discussion

  • Freedom of Speech and the Big Tech arm of the single party system

    • Facebook announcing 2 year ban of Donald Trump

      • No plausible explaination other than trying to influence the midterm elections

    • Twitter bans any conservative that gets too popular

      • Although the Barstool Sports action backfired

    • The Amazon shutdown of Parler was pure censorship

    • The Covid-Wuhan Lab “conspiracy theory”

      • All attempts to talk about it on social media were censored for an entire year!

  • How many genders are there?

    • Maybe sports should be defined as XX and XY chromosome leagues!!!

    • How did we get so far away from common sense and moral behavior?

  • Inflation – (happily surprised that this is a college topic!)

    • You cannot print trillions of dollars, give it away for zero return of goods/services and not expect inflation to take hold!

    • Last 2 months have set records for price increases

    • The war on oil (at least produced in US) has sent gas up 50%

    • PS: California is forcing a move to electric cars but just issued recommendation to stop charging them in order to prevent rolling blackouts (again)

  • Stock market manipulation

    • Gamestop and AMC – meme stocks

      • Social media used to combat big fund shorts

    • Why punish the little guy for punishing the big guy?

    • “Too big to fail” needs to go away for good

Segment 3

Looney Tunes

The coming war on conservatives

  • In 2012, BHO used the IRS to attack conservative groups and individuals

    • It was the first time in history that a president went after average individuals as opposed to large corporations or rich individuals.

  • https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/irs-denies-tax-exempt-status-to-christian-nonprofit-group-because-the-bible-s-teachings-are-typically-affiliated-with-the-republican-party/ar-AALfmJr

    • “The Internal Revenue Service denied a Christian nonprofit group tax-exempt status because “the Bible’s teachings are typically affiliated with the Republican Party and candidates.”

    • “The Bible teachings are typically affiliated with the [Republican Party] and candidates. This disqualifies you from exemption under IRC Section 501(c)(3).”

  • Now the DOJ has released “National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism”

    • https://www.foxnews.com/media/justice-department-domestic-terror-biden-critics

    • The main justification is the theater of January 6th

    • Nicholas Giordano, gov’t document expert on Tucker Carlson Tonight

      • "When you look at it, it is clear the [legal] analysts in the field didn't write this document, it was the political appointees trying to push an agenda. They list three factors to drive domestic terrorism: the first is racism," he said. "The question then is, are we born 'domestic terrorists'" under this new agenda, Giordano questioned.

      • Another tenet of what the document describes as "domestic terrorism" is "anti-government sentiment."Another tenet of what the document describes as "domestic terrorism" is "anti-government sentiment."

      • "It does not give explanation except for the fact the government--the powers that be--will determine what "incitement" means: But on page ten it has a few examples if you question the 2020 election or if you talk about COVID and questioned the mandates that came out, – or engaging in what the government deems a conspiracy, that can incite domestic terrorism and therefore you can get punished for it."

  • Are we about to have the “Minority Report- Pre Crime Division”

    • Guilty before you even do anything!
