Albert Gallatin and his Influence on America

History has always been a fascination of mine.   It’s probably no surprise then that the history of money, and all things pertaining to it, would also interest me.  I’ve read about the Federal Reserve, and the rise of fractional banking, and the legal differences between banking regulations; heck I’ve read...

Military Contract Bonuses: Government Claw Back Edition

I’ve got a lot of respect for the military.  They endure things that the average person could not cope with.  This is especially true during a wartime situation like the United States has been faced with since 2001.  We send our men and women to serve all across the globe. ...

Sleepover at the Sheriff! What I learned About Professional Hardships

In every job, you will have professional hardships.  I had my first major one while working at the sheriff’s office.  As most of you know, Central Florida was hit by Hurricane Matthew this week.  I’m a dispatcher, so I’m considered part of the essential emergency staffing.  This meant that, from 5:30 AM...

Hillary Clinton Tax and Economic Plan – Part 1

Like I promised in the Donald Trump presidency breakdown (part 1 and part 2), I said I would keep it fair and look at Hillary Clinton’s platform as well.  I put it off a few days knowing that, unlike Trump’s piecemeal platform, she would have a fully-rounded and comprehensive plan. ...

Donald Trump’s Economic and Tax Policy – Part 1

With August coming to a close, and the battle for the U.S. Presidency about to come full steam, I thought it fitting to review each candidate’s economic policy.  This is a personal finance blog after all, and what is more key to personal finances than taxes and jobs?  This is...
