    September 19, 2014

    The business tax doesn't usually generate much excitement. But it sure did this summer, when iconic Minnesota company Medtronic announced its intention to relocate their headquarters overseas. Is the business tax a "good" thing because most people don't pay it? If the business tax were eliminated, would it just benefit "the rich"? Would taxes have to rise for other people?

    Public education is another form of corporate welfare
    September 3, 2014

    Before the Industrial Revolution(IR) education was private. But the IR brought about a change in needs by our new industrial sector because everything was standardized on the assembly line.
