Just Tax

I am encouraged that the younger people in our country are becoming painfully aware of the suffocating debt burden that our government is shackling them to; that can never be repaid despite inevitable tax increases. They have been betrayed.  Read More

CIASF Luncheon Event

CIASF Luncheon Event Topic: “America’s Anti-Trade Policies” Sponsor: The ComReal Companies in Miami Date: July 10th , 2009 Location: Flagler Station Business Park in Medley, FL Good afternoon everyone! My name is Edward Redlich and I’m with The ComReal Companies of Miami. This year, The ComReal Companies celebrate its 30th year in South Florida’s commercial real estate market. ComReal continues to be a proud sponsor of this organization. Although we have invested in a few minutes to speak today about our company, I’d much rather allot my time to introduce a gentleman who is going to educate us on a much more important topic. The topic is “America’s anti-trade policies”. Mr. Neal Asbury is both an excellent communicator on the subject and a true visionary. Personally, I believe... Read More

Politics Puts Limits on International Trade

Politics Puts Limits on International Trade By Carl Cronan MIAMI-International trade continues to have an impact on the local industrial market, but landlords and developers can only grow that business as much as politics allow, and speakers at a local event last weak. The discussion was hosted by the Commercial Industrial Association of South Florida and featured local radio host Neal Asbury. Asbury advocates depoliticizing US trade policy and leveling the playing field for imports from all countries, similar to the North American Free Trade Agreement. He views the issue as a national one, even though Miami-Dade County is considered a global gateway to Florida and the rest of the country. “South Florida still has a very viable and active trade market,” Eric Swanson, executive vice president... Read More


The Vietnam War was painful. American soldiers who followed orders and pulled their triggers may have escaped Charlie’s bullets and booby traps, but they couldn’t avoid the psychological ambush their countrymen inflicted on their scared souls stateside. When they returned home, there were no parades, no hero’s welcomes, not even a thank-you. To some, home no longer felt like home. This is the story of one courageous Vietnam veteran. Ed Turner, known to his friends as E.T., was a heavyweight club fighter who became a gunner on a gunship called Spooky. Gunship duty was extremely dangerous. The planes were slow and low-flying, with little armor. The left cargo-bay door remained open as three Gatling guns fired 300 rounds per second into every square meter of a football field-size... Read More

So I said

So I said to him, “Barack, I know Abe Lincoln, and you ain’t Abe Lincoln.” You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves. ....Abraham Lincoln  Read More

Mad Money

The Obama Administration came to DC town promising to spend everything and the kitchen sink. In this regard, they have not been a disappointment. Many Americans mistakenly believe the trillions of dollars to pay for Obama’s unprecedented and historic government intervention, entitlements and social welfare is securely stashed away in a big safe somewhere in Washington. There is no vault and there is no cash; there is only “vapor paper” being created out of thin air. Quantitative easing is a phrase that has come into the lexicon lately. When interest rates are at or near zero and the commercial banks are still not lending money, the Fed injects massive amounts of money into the economy through accounts held by the banks at the Federal Reserve. The Fed buys bank securities,... Read More

The Crumbling Third Pillar

Democracy, free enterprise and an unfettered media are the foundation of America’s incredible success. We could not have become the most powerful nation in the history of the world with one of these pillars missing or weakened. That is why the tectonic shift in how news is gathered and disseminated is so vitally important to our future. The ownership of our mainstream media has become more and more radicalized and concentrated, with a diminished number of news outlets and independent journalists. Almost all cable systems are owned by one of the major media conglomerates. Two-thirds of today’s newspapers are monopolies. What does this mean for ordinary Americans? Everything outside one’s personal thoughts and communications is determined by newsrooms increasingly influenced by political... Read More

The Obama Shock

Gold has always had a magic allure. So it was a shock when in 1971 U.S. President Richard Nixon suddenly and without warning ended the direct convertibility of the U.S. Dollar into gold. For the first time in the 20th century the United States began piling up budget and trade deficits. It was unimaginable that a country that had enacted the Marshall Plan to help our enemies rebuild their economies by opening wide U.S. markets to imports without demanding equal access to foreign markets for our exports, would find itself on the short end of the trade stick. By 1970 we were printing U.S. Dollars like comic books to send overseas to cover our expanding trade deficit. The gold coverage of the U.S. dollar shrank from 55% to 20%. Our trading partners began demanding “promise to pay” gold bullion... Read More

The Voice of U.S. Exporters Must Be Heard To Prevent

If you think America is going “Back to the Future” with talk about the Great Depression, job losses, and other references to the 1930s, then America’s slide toward Isolationism will put this country in a tragic time machine that will have devastating results. During the 1930s, the combination of the Great Depression and the memory of horrific losses in World War I contributed to pushing American public opinion and policy toward Isolationism. For example, the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930 essentially shut off imports into the U.S. by imposing prohibitively high tariffs on foreign goods. Echoing developments today with U.S. trading partners, even before the Act went in effect, boycotts of U.S. goods began. As early as September 1929, President Hoover ‘s administration had received... Read More
