For the first time, NAHREP will be releasing a narrative review of the new tax legislation recently signed into law. The organization characterizes the law as “disappointing” but with some definite positives for business owners and investors. The new law was passed with zero support or input from democrats. Ironically, the flawed Dodd-Frank bill was justifiably maligned by conservatives for its total lack of republican input. Legislation crafted in the dark and rammed through Congress is no way to serve the American people.
Inflation has impacted all of us. The price of almost everything has spiked faster and harder than at any time since the 80s. Few things can obliterate a modern economy more than out-of-control inflation.
For most people, there is little upside to writing about the January 6th hearings, but as you probably know by now, I don’t worry about those things. We all must stand for something. The hearings have almost everyone taking sides before a single witness is called. Democrats believe that the events of January 6th were a calculated effort to undermine our democracy by demolishing two of the most sacred tenants of our nation, free elections, and the peaceful transition of power.
Most people consider themselves either a conservative or a liberal. I think if we forget political parties, which flip their positions on things all of the time, and instead focus on the actual definition of what it means to be a conservative and what it means to be a liberal, we might be able to temper the emotional reactions some of us have with political discourse.
