Source: Justin Gardner After seven years of benefiting from the greatest transfer of wealth in history, the U.S. banking industry topped it off with record profits in 2015. The Great Fleecing may have reached its height just as the scheme known as Quantitative Easing ran out of gas. “The U.S. banking industry earned net income of $163.63 billion in 2015, the highest net income of any year in the SNL bank regulatory database, which dates back to 1991… The largest four banks, JPMorgan Chase Bank NA, Bank of America NA, Wells Fargo Bank NA and Citibank NA together earned 42.7% of the...

Millennials Pick Socialism Over Capitalism

by Mike Flynn A new survey from YouGov finds that millennials have more favorable views of socialism than of capitalism. As Santayana said, those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Less than two decades after socialism seemed to have been confined to the dust-heap of history, another generation may have to learn hard lessons. The survey, taken at the end of January, found that 43 percent of Americans under 30 had a favorable view of socialism.

Liberals create national language barrier

By Candice Malcolm   Get ready for “radical changes” to Canada’s citizenship laws. That is what Immigration Minister John McCallum told reporters in Ottawa, adding that details of these changes will be announced in the next few weeks. Recall that during the election campaign Justin Trudeau said he would scrap the Conservatives’ Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, also known as Bill C-24. The bill, among other things, allowed the government to revoke the citizenship of dual citizens convicted of terrorism. Trudeau let it be known that he believes “a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian,” regardless of whether they...

The Bitter Fight Over the Benefits of Bilingualism

by Ed Yong For decades, some psychologists have claimed that bilinguals have better mental control. Their work is now being called into question. In one of his sketches, comedian Eddie Izzard talks about how English speakers see bilingualism: “Two languages in one head? No one can live at that speed! Good lord, man. You’re asking the impossible,” he says. This satirical view used to be a serious one. People believed that if children grew up with two languages rattling around their heads, they would become so confused that their “intellectual and spiritual growth would not thereby be doubled, but...

Trudeau says it may be difficult to keep balanced budget promise

Trudeau, speaking to the French-language La Presse newspaper, also confirmed the budget deficit in the 2016/17 fiscal year would be larger than the $10 billion his new Liberal government initially committed to. Trudeau won power last October promising to run three consecutive modest budget deficits to help fund infrastructure spending he says is needed to boost a struggling economy. At the time he said...

College Students Banned from Using “Mom” or “Dad” Because It’s Not “Inclusive” Enough

by | Melissa Dykes Word by word, the language is being picked apart by the politically correct police on the most ridiculous grounds possible. Pretty soon we aren’t going to be able to use very many words anymore… not unless we want to (GASP!) offend someone. In a world where governments are blowing up children with drones and calling them collateral damage in phony terror wars on a daily basis, social engineering has turned average people into walking arguments that the film Idiocracy was actually a documentary, busily wasting their time fretting over how offensive otherwise innocuous words are....
