American Flag

I knew the United States government was lying to me. I didn’t need Edward Snowden to tell me that. I just thought the lies were going to be about the existence of Area 51 or the promise of Social Security when I retire. I certainly didn’t expect that the lies the government is feeding me […]

I received a ‘great’ question from a reader, and I’d like to base this week’s newsletter around it because, sadly, I hear it a lot, or some version of it. The question goes something like this: “I live month to month, and with no credit, so I have no spare money to make money with. […]
