    Trump's Treasury Secretary Says Increased Automation Is "Not Even on Our Radar"

    During his campaign, now-President Donald Trump promised voters he would bring American jobs back from overseas. Now that he is in office, his administration has made job creation a central focus of its efforts. But what if those jobs overseas can’t come back to the United States because companies no longer need to hire humans to complete the tasks? How is the Trump administration gearing up to tackle the rise of automation?

    Maine is poised to make it a lot harder for police to steal your stuff

    Maine is poised to make it a lot harder for police to seize your property without charging you with a crime, as lawmakers introduced a bill this month to reform the state’s civil asset forfeiture laws. With civil asset forfeiture, police can seize cash, vehicles and even homes, provided only that the property is suspected of being used in a crime. Often, no charges or convictions are required. Senator Eric Brakey, along...

    Life in the fast lane: Oregon Senate OKs $110 fine for slowpoke lane hogs

    Going slow in the fast lane? Move over - or face a possible ticket. That's the upshot of legislation passed 19-10 by the Oregon Senate on Tuesday. “People who hog the left lane lead to road rage and frustration, tailgating and passing on the right,” said Sen. Ginny Burdick, D-Portland. “All of these are unsafe behaviors. Several states across the nation are taking this approach to make their highways safer. It will improve traffic safety and help end an annoying behavior on the roadway.”

    President Trump has successfully created an alternate reality

    A poll shows 3 in 4 Republicans think Trump's offices were surveilled during the 2016 election. Americans live in two realities when it comes to the Russia investigation. On one side is the intelligence community, and on the other is a Republican Party that very much believes President Trump's alternative facts. Including, apparently, that Trump's offices were wiretapped during the 2016 presidential campaign.

    It turns out Donald Trump is not an ‘Artist of the Deal’

    “Winning is everything,” Donald Trump often said as he campaigned for president. “Nothing is presidential except victory.” Last week, Trump suffered a major defeat when he couldn’t force a House vote for the health care bill he endorsed. But, Trump being Trump, he said it wasn’t really a defeat; it was a success in disguise. “Here’s the good news,” he told the Washington Post. “Health care is now totally the property of the Democrats. … I’ve been saying for years that the best thing is to let Obamacare explode and then go make a deal.”

    White House calls for domestic cuts to finance Mexico border wall

    President Donald Trump is proposing immediate budget cuts of $18 billion from programs like medical research, infrastructure and community grants so U.S. taxpayers, not Mexico, can cover the down payment on the border wall. The White House documents were submitted to Congress amid negotiations over a catchall spending bill that would avert a partial government shutdown at the end of next month. The package would wrap up $1.1 trillion in unfinished spending bills and address the Trump administration's request for an immediate $30 billion in additional Pentagon spending.

    Donald Trump declares 'new age of American energy' as he destroys Obama's climate change legacy 

    US President Donald Trump set out to obliterate his predecessor Barack Obama's legacy on climate change as part of a bid to unleash America's energy potential. Mr Trump last night signed a sweeping executive order slashing measures from the Obama era, a move that was welcomed by the oil and coal industries as a bold step to end regulations that were "choking" the economy. Environmentalists condemned the move, accusing Mr Trump of wanting to "travel back to when smokestacks damaged our health" and said they would take his administration to court.

    Tax Cuts Don't Lead to Economic Growth, a New 65-Year Study Finds

    Here's a brief economic history of the last quarter-century in taxes and growth. In 1990, President George H. W. Bush raised taxes, and GDP growth increased over the next five years. In 1993, President Bill Clinton raised the top marginal tax rate, and GDP growth increased over the next five years. In 2001 and 2003, President Bush cut taxes, and we faced a disappointing expansion followed by a Great Recession. Does this story prove that raising taxes helps GDP? No. Does it prove that cutting taxes hurts GDP? No.

    Trump’s War on Terror Has Quickly Become as Barbaric and Savage as He Promised

    From the start of his presidency, Donald Trump’s “war on terror” has entailed the seemingly indiscriminate slaughter of innocent people in the name of killing terrorists. In other words, Trump has escalated the 16-year-old core premise of America’s foreign policy — that it has the right to bomb any country in the world where people it regards as terrorists are found — and in doing so, has fulfilled the warped campaign pledges he repeatedly expressed.

    US Supreme Court Hears Oral Arguments Over Your Right To Refill Ink And Toner Cartridges

    Printers are expensive. Recycling and selling used/refilled printer ink cartridges has often been seen as a way to recoup all the money that often gets sunk into the cash cow of the printer business - the ink itself. The ruling of Impression Products, Inc. v Lexmark Int’l, Inc, a recent and rather obscure court case, could potentially change how items are used, recycled, restored, and resold once they have been bought by a customer.
