After Trump publicly exposed himself as Earth’s preeminent moron regarding how science relates to combatting the novel coronavirus, the imbecile-in-chief claimed his new focus is America’s economy. If that is Trump’s intent, then it is worth looking at why America is facing an economic disaster after his predecessor, President Barack Obama, left him with a raging economic success. Most people understand that Trump inherited a thriving “Obama economy”  only to completely decimate it in a matter of weeks.

It is no secret that besides robbing American taxpayers, Trump’s laser-focus was on eliminating all of President Barack Obama’s accomplishments and policies enacted over a combative eight years. As leader of the Executive Branch of government, wiping out Barack Obama’s achievements is still dirty Don Trump’s raison d’être.

Erasing policies that benefit all Americans has always been the GOP’s primary goal, and with Trump in a place he does not

7 Things That Are Wrong With Society

Humans are such a complex species. We could not figure out the mind of a human, no matter how hard we tried. Psychology touches on some of the behavioral and thought processes that are experienced by a human, but Psychology will never be completely factual because the human brain is far too complicated.

People can argue that social media has had a positive impact on society economically, and maybe even socially in some cases.

It is so easy to manipulate people when we put certain stimuli

Government Contracts Law: An Overview

The United States Government is the single largest procurer of goods and services in the world, and the Department of Defense (DOD) accounts for the lion’s share of federal acquisitions.  Three major characteristics distinguish Government acquisitions from private sector contracts.  First, Government contracts are subject to myriad statutes, regulations, and policies which encourage competition to the maximum extent practicable, ensure proper spending of taxpayer money, and advance socioeconomic goals.  Second, Government contracts contain mandatory clauses which afford the Government special contractual rights, including the right to unilaterally change contract terms and conditions or terminate the contract.  The most important clauses are the “Changes” clause, the “Termination for Convenience” clause, and the “Default” clause.  Third, due to the Government’s special status as a sovereign entity, claims and litigation follow the unique procedures of the Contract Disputes Act. 

Government contracts are subject to
