Expired tax extenders not yet on track for renewal

NASCAR's 2019 season started today with the auto racing series' biggest event, the Daytona 500.

Things aren't so clear-cut, though for the expired tax break for motorsports speedway improvements and more than two dozen other assorted tax benefits. These tax breaks expired in 2017 and are not on track for reinstatement. Yet. In fact, they're looking as messy as today's closing laps pile...

Thomas Jefferson's Ten Rules to Live By

Thomas Jefferson was skilled in many fields. In December 1962, John F. Kennedy entertained a group of Nobel prize winners in the White House and welcomed them as the most distinguished gathering of intellects to dine in the Executive Mansion “with the possible exception of when Mr. Jefferson dined here alone.” Jefferson cared for people and always offered advice when asked.

A digital gangster destroying democracy: the damning verdict on Facebook

Parliament’s report into fake news raises many questions, but will the government act? Facebook is an out-of-control train wreck that is destroying democracy and must be brought under control. The final report of parliament’s inquiry into fake news and disinformation does not use this language, precisely, but it is, nonetheless, the report’s central message. And the language it does use is no less damning.Facebook behaves like a “digital gangster”. It considers itself to be “ahead of and beyond ...

The rats are steering the sinking ship

Los Angeles City Hall is infested with rats. I know, the jokes pretty much write themselves, don’t they? Rats, rat droppings, fleas and at least one case of typhus prompted City Council President Herb Wesson to promise a quick and comprehensive solution to the problem including the pricey prospect of tearing out and replacing all the carpets and drapes in the iconic 32-story building. Four-legged rats get everyone’s attention. Too bad the same can’t be said for the two-legged vermin that have al...
