President-elect Donald Trump ran in part against the business-as-usual cronyism that has for decades been rampant in Washington, D.C. His pledge to “Drain the Swamp” resoundingly resonated – and helped propel him to the presidency. Congress has been a chronic, consistent swamp filler. Now, headed into the Trump presidency, Congress has an opportunity to reverse course and start draining. They absolutely should avail themselves. The | Read More »

Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has a current market cap value of $544 billion. The entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Taiwan is $524 billion. So Google is bigger than…Taiwan.
