PotUS - It’s 420! --- It’s Our Be Honest Bill & Barack Broadcast! Did they really inhale or not? Cannabis is still illegal under federal law. Yet the FDA is approving a drug made of it. Seems interesting that a Federal Agency can approve something that is illegal. Aside from this, 30 states have legalized some medical form of it. Nine states plus D.C. allow unlimited recreational use of it. Michigan says they will become the 10th and it’s on the ballot this year. The list keeps growing. ABC takes a look it. What’s your take on it?

The world owes 225% of what it produces. Is it bankrupt? World debt levels are 12 points higher than previous records set in 2009. China led the pack for a much of the time and has the largest increase. But US debt is now projected to go 108% in 2017 to 117% of GDP in 2023. The International Monetary Fund is saying, “We urge policymakers to avoid pro-cyclical policy actions that provide unnecessary stimulus when economic activity is already pacing up. The economic upswing should be used to accumulate fiscal buffers for tempestuous times that will eventually come.” The bankers at the Fed are keeping rates artificially low and bleeding us out of every cent they before we take the fall. It’s coming soon to an economy near you.

If you had $250 Million to start, would you be totally audacious? You could turn the tide on mass incarceration in the US, eliminate of one of the world’s oldest diseases, explore a mysterious part of the ocean, help hit the brakes on climate change, launch a health revolution for Black women, expand the efficacy of community health workers, or hasten an end to hunger. How about tackling all of these at once? Lofty goal. But why not? It’s Audacious! These are all on the to-do list for Richard and his team. Here’s wishing them the best. https://www.virgin.com/richard-branson/audacious-project

Help Wanted! Minnesota is pushing to change state law that keeps minors from working at construction sites. New Hampshire is considering letting 16 or 17 year olds work more hours. Companies are seeking help from trade school programs and building in-house apprenticeships. Recruiters are going after high school students. The U.S. faces its most severe worker shortage in the past two decades. Academia is still pushing the same old myths about requirements for degrees. Time to wake up America! Without workers, all this expansion is about to come to an end.

Is our food ok? The NY Times actually now has a food safety page. Recent events include 8, 757 pounds of ready-to-eat salad with E. coli, 200 million eggs tainted with salmonella, and Bologna laced with listeria. The sea salt that’s supposed to be better for you contains plastic and those fresh farmed fish are fed fecal trash. Maybe those Tide Pods aren’t so bad after all? Worse yet, when you get food at a restaurant or packaged for home cooking, you have no clue where it came from or how it was produced.

It’s not subprime. They are nonprime! The “they” committee has spoken. Debt is not debt. Default is not default. Duh, it’s dubiously different! And apparently if you can breathe, bankers say you can borrow. Consumer debt is at an alarming level. Credit underwriting standards have gone in the toilet again and include “shadow banks.” There’s an investment fund named SomDumbOne that will get stuck with all of these (psst … you likely own SDO in your 401k). The Federal Reserve members are all but saying “Houston, We Have a Problem.” Get ready cause here they come. Escalating higher interest rates and many more foreclosures. Note: If it quacks like a duck, it probably is a duck.

Dearest Mr. Graham, and I mean that in the kindness of way (but can’t post the entire descriptive disclosure due to the massive length of text required which is caused by attorneys like you, Congressional mandates, regulatory requirements, special interests, pacs, every other non-average person with an axe to grind and my notes from Grandma), the 10 hours of public grandstanding and tongue lashing accomplished absolutely nothing. Now what smart feller? How about we just ban opinions and free speech? No one can steal it, use it or benefit from it if we don’t say it.

Sorry Ms Eltagouri, but your undereducated palate and unsavory description of “tropical drywall” or “plaster surprise” leaves a bad taste in my mouth. These little discs are truly an American classic. A fan favorite on the shopping list of every Cracker Barrel or Stuckey’s outing. They are right next to the Moon Pies and Pecan Logs. Necco is rumored to have the longest shelf life of any food. Some claim you can still eat the ones made for soldiers during the Civil War. The company needs a buyer. It would be sad to see this one go.

The quote reads, “It's hard when someone special ignores you but it’s harder pretending that you just don't care.” Every group, every team, every family has at least one. These people, at least on the surface, seem very successful. They could be sales leaders, the employee of the year, highly recognized community volunteers, celebrities or business executives. Their mistakenly rude posture often masks the true fears that lie within. Think about who you are. Are you one of them? If so, those people who keep reaching out to help you may not answer when you really need them.

Really should not be surprised …subjective, sometimes very personal concerns play an ever important role in buyer’s choices. “Mastering the intangibles of the customer’s total experience can be difficult, but there seems to be a strong payoff.” At the very pinnacle of value are items like vision, hope and social responsibility. Relationship was outranked and economics, quality and even function were even lower on the pyramid.
