As a business woman, I focus a lot on the numbers! The “numbers” tell me what is “out of the norm” – what needs attention – what needs immediate triage and then how to prioritize the necessary changes. In the numbers this week: 85 separate chemical gas attacks by Assad on his own people –
Itt is unlikely that John Kennedy would have put himself forward as a candidate in 2016. His personal life was just too messy. But 1960 journalism was still the province of ideas and solutions – not salacious gossip. In 2016 "news" has been transformed into a place where entertainment trumps substance. Irrelevant sensationalism discourages the average voter -- concerned about the economic security and physical safety of his/her own family -- from participating. Don't be fooled -- every vote matters -- even if you can't vote for either Clinton or Trump! PLEASE VOTE!

Before the United States reaches the 100 percent Debt to GDP threshold, no investor, foreign or domestic, will be willing or able to purchase our debt at any interest rate. The combination of political and social instability will swallow everything – including your savings.

No more credit card shopping for Congress and the American people. We can't pay the bill!
America imports 91 percent more from China than it exports to China.
