Tribute to My Father

November 21, 2014 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP This week, I said good-bye to a man I've known for 40 years. He was a good man with a great heart. A well-respected businessman, father, and community leader. This man was always willing to listen to your problems, fears, and successes as well as lend his own viewpoint when asked – and sometimes even when not asked.... Personally, he was a great example and a lifelong mentor. This man battled cancer off and on for a few years and finally the demon got the best of him. Even on his … [Read More...]

Don’t Trust “Net Neutrality”

November 17, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher We live in some fast-changing times! There are advancements to behold in nearly every industry that are helping people and improving the quality of life for many. My dad was diagnosed with cancer in 1992 or so. They told him he had months to live unless he removed both his kidneys, his adrenal glands, and his lymph nodes. He would have to be on dialysis and the recovery time would be rather lengthy… assuming he lived through that. He turned his act around for sure in terms of habits and d … [Read More...]

War on Self-Sufficiency!

November 10, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher I see a lot of local news articles. And I’ve done a few write ups here about the over regulation of businesses by the government. But perhaps the bigger picture isn’t the regulations. Perhaps the bigger picture is dependency. This article is specifically for those who believe that we pay into the system because we receive from the system. This ALSO goes out to those who find people like me callous for opposing taxes which are purported to help the poor. Our first story is of the 90 year … [Read More...]

Government Curveballs

November 3, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher What happens when the federal government imposes expensive regulations and jacks up the minimum wage? Local governments and businesses can’t keep up. What’s the difference between a local government being overwhelmed with federal government impositions and a private business? The local government will kick the can down the road while the business simply finds a solution. Commonwealth Issues Massachusetts is touted as having the best healthcare system in the United States… at least on t … [Read More...]

Theft By Any Other Name Is Still Theft

October 27, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond Between taxation and inflation, you'd think the government would have maxed out on plunder.  Nope.  Civil Asset Forfeiture is finally making the news. “If you have nothing hide, you have nothing to fear.” “If you just follow the law, you’ll be fine.” I hear those two phrases far too much. (Once is already enough to get my blood boiling!) The truth is, it doesn’t matter if you do or you don’t have anything to hide. And it doesn’t matter if you do or you don’t follow the law. The people doing the searc … [Read More...]

Constipated Economy

October 22, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher By now, Lyft, Uber, and Sidecar are all fairly well known in metropolitan areas like San Francisco and the Greater Los Angeles area. It’s a smart phone application based service that is turning the taxi and private transportation industry on its ear! They are drastically undercutting the taxi services, because they don’t call themselves a taxi service. They are a ride sharing business. Rather than metered fares, they are a relatively low suggested flat “donation”. Most users pay the suggest … [Read More...]

The Double Irish

October 16, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher Ireland got creative with its tax regime: businesses loved it, the EU… not so much. Condemning tax competition by a country doing its level best to recuperate from bailout conditions only 5 years ago is cruel, to say the very least. Back in August I wrote a piece called “Economic Patriotism”, discussing all the various corporations looking to become “multi-nationals” by inverting out of the U.S. and merging with corporations outside the U.S. in more business-friendly countries. One destinati … [Read More...]

China v the US = Strategy v Tragedy

October 13, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher While the United States is fixated on some new tribe of rebels in Iraq and Syria, China just swooped by and surpassed the United States twenty-seven ways to Sunday. As I’ve mentioned in nearly every single article to do with China, they are and have been playing a strategic game of Go, while the United States is playing a tragic game of Connect Four with 42 different colors. First off, I think this says something about how meaningless labels can be. On the surface, a Communist country s … [Read More...]

“Exit VISAs” in Canada?

October 6, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher Over thirteen years after 9/11, and we are now, more than ever, under heightened security measures. Insofar as the War on Terror is concerned, I would say it has been an abject failure of epic proportions. The reason being: Westerners are STILL terrified. We’re told to freak out about the FLU now. This rotation of fear-mongering is brought to you by the top seller of flu vaccines: Sanofi Pasteur MSD. We’re told to freak out about the latest brand of terrorists. It WAS the Mujahedeen.

The War on Information

September 29, 2014 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher If you’re reading this, then you might be a recovering American convalescing over ruthless indoctrination as well as battered citizen syndrome: where the government abuses your rights, and then later apologizes with an election and a nice speech. So it might come as little surprise that a school district in Colorado wants to “soften” American history.   While the right wing wants to herald American imperialism as some God-ordained blood bath of glory, the left wants to shelter children ent … [Read More...]

Sentiments on Secession

September 22, 2004 By: Kelly Diamond, Publisher The big thing in news this past week has been the referendum for an emancipated Scotland from the UK. Unfortunately, it did not pass. I say “unfortunately” because all secession is good secession. Decentralizing power is the only true way to limit a government, i.e. limiting the scope of its power. The other unfortunate part of this is 55% of the voters in Scotland didn’t think it was a good idea to break away. The reasons why, however, and quite astounding. Only about 25% of the No voter … [Read More...]

Good News For US Canadian Dual Nationals – FATCA Post

September 18, 2014 By: Brian Mahany, Principal at Mahany & Ertl The United States and Canada have long enjoyed very close ties. That relationship isn’t likely to change in the near future, although FATCA – the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act – has angered many Canadians. Some equate FATCA with U.S. imperialism and say the law threatens Canada’s sovereignty. Congress passed FATCA in 2010. The law hopes to curtail tax evasion that relies on offshore bank accounts to hide money from the IRS. Having the offshore account isn’t illegal but … [Read More...]
