President Biden’s Misfire on ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban ~ VIDEO

By Larry Keane U.S.A. -( President Joe Biden ran on being a “listener,” and bringing “unity” and “healing” to America. He’s not listening though. His tone-deaf call for increased gun control – including an “assault weapons” ban — comes in the midst of a record-breaking firearm and ammunition buying surge and record low public appetite for gun control. Instead of listening to voters, President Biden ignored them and is calling to ban the AR-15, or modern sporting rifle (MSR), and...

As small businesses decline, only the wealthiest benefit

As the son, grandson, and great-grandson of California small business owners, I am deeply familiar with how hand-to-mouth most family businesses operate. A bad month, couple of months, or fiscal quarter could mean the difference between solvency or insolvency — not just for the businesses, but for their families too. Which is why it is a shame that small business people have disproportionately taken the biggest hit during the pandemic. And for the record, when I say “small business people,” I do...
