If U.S. invested in missile defense like we spent on nation-building, the homeland would be safer

Since the presidency of Ronald Reagan, Americans have been promised the “Strategic Defense Initiative” (SDI) or some form of missile defense to protect America from a rogue nuclear or other type of intercontinental missile attack.  From Presidents George W. Bush to Barack Obama, that promise has remained unfulfilled.  Right now, President Donald Trump has an […]

Un-American: Feds claim you have no right to privacy with data in the cloud

A hearing was postponed this week with the title, “Law Enforcement Access to Data Stored Across Borders: Facilitating Cooperation and Protecting Rights.”  Although the hearing title does not sound all that exciting, the hearing is expected to study and debate the future of cloud computing for all Americans.  Center to the debate is the issue […]

Fake news alert: No, Congress did not repeal internet privacy

Millennials live on the Internet. We were born and raised surfing the web, using Snapchat and Instagram and, of course, playing games online. It is almost a birthright. Keeping the Internet free and clear of oppressive federal government red-tape and regulations is critical to keep innovation and growth in this space.  Some on the left […]

End Open Skies? Unions and big business want to kill affordable travel

The Open Skies agreements, which provide competition for the big three (old) air carriers — American, Delta, and United Air Lines — might be under fire by special interest groups; but not by the general public. Young consumers want safe, inexpensive travel, and these agreements help to keep costs down for young travelers who don’t have much […]

Young Americans stand to benefit most from Trump’s tax reform

Congress is working on a tax reform proposal that will govern the lives of millennials for years to come.   It is important that Congress get it right. The last time the tax code was subject to a massive overhaul was during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.  Expect this to be the last opportunity for tax […]

Music industry monopolists beg Trump to limit access to streaming

It would be an extreme understatement to say that Hollywood did not exactly embrace the election of Donald Trump with grace. There have been endless speeches, protests, and laughable video compilations that show a seemingly never-ending stream of hand wringers from both the acting and music industries proclaiming the end of the world as they […]

How Airbnb’s liberal executives are trashing the free market

Airbnb has become a billion-dollar business because they have done what all smart capitalists do: they saw a need in the market and figured out a way to fill it. Over the last few years, they have developed a service that people love, particularly millennials, and found a way to sidestep the excessive taxation placed […]

Elon Musk wants millennials to fund his man-on-Mars project

Like many little boys, Elon Musk has always dreamed of flying to Mars. But unlike most children, he never grew out of his childhood fantasy, working towards this goal for most of his life. Musk envisions a day when people will be able to live on Mars and travel back and forth to Earth at […]

Will billionaire Bill Ackman’s fake news destroy the free market?

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth” is an old quote often attributed to Vladimir Lenin, so it’s possible that Lenin is the original creator of the fake news trend. There is a technique referred to as the “great lie” that is popular not only in Russia but China, too. First, make the lie […]

Here’s how DOJ is threatening to scrap our online privacy rights

For those of us born in the 1990s, it is hard to imagine that people once lived without email and the internet. Rather than instantaneously sending a message to a colleague, people were stuck using the dreaded snail-mail services like USPS that take 3-5 days to deliver. Now, not only do we expect instant communications, […]

Big Brother is after millennials’ short-term loans

With college tuition rising to unprecedented rates and the workforce participation rate nearing a 40-year low, our nation’s young people are more reliant on private loans to finance their expenses now more than ever. President Bush and Obama’s fiscal irresponsibility got us into this economic mess, but millennials can at least count on the government […]

Schools must prepare millennials to defend against cyber attacks [Opinion]

Most people have had a feeling that someone is watching them only to turn around to see that no one is there. But imagine if you were to discover that indeed you were secretly being watched, and it had been going on for more than 5 years without your knowledge. That’s a pretty scary thought, […]

Will Congress force contact lens users to wear glasses?

One of the most exciting days of my young life was the day my parents finally considered me responsible enough to trade in my ugly, bulky glasses for contact lenses. I was a hockey goalie and struggled playing with my glasses always sliding out of position at the most critical times. Of course, learning to […]

DOJ could force music steamers out of business

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is in the process of making a decision that could impact millennials’ access to streaming music. Reports have leaked from the Justice Department that they are under pressure to make decisions that will increase the cost of music for all consumers. This is a complicated issue, yet it comes down […]

Are millennials going to have health care in 10 years?

I just graduated from college, and I’m worried that recent developments in the health care sector of our economy foreshadow a bleak future for young people. Will I have access to care when I hit 30 years old? Thousands of Americans are losing insurance and the promise of “affordable care” seems like it was a lie. Obamacare has […]
