The Utter Hypocrisy of Feigned Russian Hacker Outrage

December 19, 2016

From the president to the mainstream media, all of a sudden it seems state-sponsored hacking is a problem

Whether you believe Barack Obama’s presidency was a failure or a success, there is no doubt on the subject of cybercrime, this administration not only failed to bring state-sponsored hackers to justice, they rewarded the people who directed them with hundreds of millions of dollars in cash.

The U.S. knew the Iranian government hacked American financial institutions as well as public infrastructure which could have killed Americans.

President Obama, After $400 Million, Where are Those Criminal Iranian Hackers ?

August 5, 2016

Why did we ship a fortune to our mortal enemy and not get the indicted cybercriminals living in Iran who attacked us, in return?

Profit: The Real Reason Whitman is Backing Clinton

August 3, 2016

HPE is a leading user of outsourced workers and skilled immigrants

People generally vote their own self-interest and in most cases they align themselves with the party which best matches these interests. This isn't always the case but seems to hold up as a general rule.

Eric Schmidt for example backed President Obama and as a result they aren't dealing with the antitrust issues they are faced with in Europe. In addition to other perks they have received unprecedented White House access. Google has visited Obama at least 128 times!



Tech helps e-Estonia Replace Delaware as Corporate Capital

July 29, 2016



Set your business up in Delaware is what you’ll hear from an attorney if you decide to set up a US corporation. Why? Look at all these benefits:

  • Delaware’s business law is one of the most flexible in the country.
  • The Delaware Court of Chancery focuses solely on business law and uses judges instead of juries.
  • For corporations, there is no state corporate income tax for companies that are formed in Delaware but do not transact business there (but there is a franchise tax).
  • Taxation requirements are often favorable to companies with complex capitalization structures and/or a large number of authorized shares of stock.
  • There is no personal income tax for non-residents.
  • Shareholders, directors and officers of a corporation or members or managers of an LLC don’t need to be Delaware residents.
  • Stock shares owned by persons outside Delaware are not subject to Delaware taxes

Is it such a surprise that if you have low taxes and simple regulations you’ll grow your business base? Apparently, as most states aren’t very competitive with these offerings.

The internet has helped usher in political upheaval around the world. Last month I penned a piece title Brexit Could be Yuuuge for China which tied together Brexit, Trump and a democratic China.

Specifically:

At some point soon, it seems inevitable that the China domino will drop. The next five to ten years is a probable window when this happens.

This Google Search May Predict the U.S. Presidential Election

July 22, 2016

While the number of deaths due to terrorist attacks may be lower than other ways of dying such as auto accidents or bathtubs as President Obama famously has said, fear of terror attacks is very real. If you're interested in knowing how real, check out Google's Search suggestions for some of the major cities which have had attacks in the past year. I am sure I have left some out but in every case the city is followed by the suggested word, "shooting."

This tells us the fear of terrorism is extremely high and the candidate the public feels is most likely to protect them from this threat may be the winner.









Sure, there are other issues when it comes to voting but as we can see above, these terror attacks are the most important happenings in each of these cities. This of course is a single data point but an important one nonetheless.











Brexit Could be Yuuuge for China

June 26, 2016

A freer people are a happier people

In the past eight years world history has changed in an unprecedented way. Just this week we learned the UK is leaving the EU and that Venezuelans have experienced prices increase up to 19,000% in the past four years – at the hands of its new unified socialist government.



Even more – the end of globalization seems to be at hand as many other EU countries are also looking to flee the EU and/or euro.

June 23, 2016

Many jobs which can be moved, will

Ask the average person their opinion of Chicago today and it will likely be murder capital of the world (technically it is far from it but the murder rate is up a whopping 72% this year). Just a decade ago it was known for pizza – which by the way is quite delicious. The good people of Chicago already have an unemployment rate 20% higher than the national average at 6.5% vs.

May 27, 2016

Expect the summer of deflection to continue.

I have discovered the reason that there is a lack of diversity in Silicon Valley. It is because HR managers there are actively discriminating against women and minorities.
