Dr. Steve Webb – How Social Media, Cyberbullies, and the Dark Web are Traumatizing Our Kids. Each day, millions of children go online to view and interact with friends, fans, and strangers. But the anything-goes nature of the internet puts kids at risk on sites like Tik Tok, Facebook, Twitter, Omegle, 4chan, and 8chan, where predators find victims and where harassers threaten and bully the vulnerable. Online interactions can manifest into physical violence and other forms of harm. Contact: Crystal Gorges, Chicago, IL. or 727-447-4992 x210.

Jack Hanney – The Economic Consequences of a Biden Presidency. Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden has already signaled that his victory in November 2020 means one thing for sure; hold on to your wallet. Personal and corporate tax rates, capital gains and deduction levels will be targeted for increases, with high income personal tax rates possibly doubling. Beyond that, the large number of burdensome regulations on small and large businesses which have been curtailed by the Trump Administration will be reinstated and increased. This “regulatory relief” has been a hidden boom in the economy. Reactions to the virus crisis and political unrest means more government oversight and control, not less. Looking at likely tax planning and investment scenarios, should Joe Biden become President, is a wise course of action. Our guest is Economist Jack Hanney.

Q & A:

1. Joe Biden has made it clear he will raise taxes if elected; he has just released a 110-page report that says he will says raise personal income tax rates, what else can Americans expect?

Answer: According to the Biden-Sanders report, increases for the average tax payer will be about 4%, going from about 36% to 40% percent; high income rates are slated to double, going from 20% to 40%. Deductions and capital gains are also targeted.

2. What is the most disturbing part of the Biden-Sanders Report?

Answer: Capital Gains, in the report Biden has indicted he will tax them at the same rate as high earners, a punishing 40% tax rate. This will send financial capital fleeing from investment in the United States for low tax havens such as Ireland. All that repatriated money Trump brought back, and more, will leave the U.S.

3. Small businesses have been heavily impacted by the various virus lockdowns, how can the Democrats expect to increase taxes and have this valuable economic resource survive?

Answer: This is a burning question; can the populace sustain a tax increase without a ripple of devastation. While the bulk of federal and local income tax comes from high earners, the small business networks provide a massive foundation for the economic health of tens of millions.

Dr. Alejandro Badia, Respected Surgeon Unveils Systemic Tragedies of a Broken U.S. Healthcare System. Dr. Badia is no stranger to the flaws and frustrations of the U.S. healthcare system. A leading hand surgeon with a medical degree from NYU, multiple accolades, and decades of experience, Dr. Badia has spent more than a quarter-century in the trenches of U.S. healthcare. His new book Healthcare from the Trenches is an open discussion of the failure of the U.S. healthcare system from the perspectives of its “providers” and patients—perspectives today’s healthcare debate sorely lacks.

“People are challenged because of a flawed system,” says Dr. Badia. “Staff at insurance companies with no medical training dictate what constitutes reimbursable care. The result is that their interference disrupts the doctor-patient relationship, delays or prevents delivery of care, and presents new obstacles to new approaches that would improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.”

“Instead of simply squatting under the dark cloud of our current healthcare system, Dr. Badia stands tall and offers the opinions and perspectives of healthcare providers and patients.” – Grady Harp, Amazon Top 50 Hall of Fame Reviewer, 5-stars

In Healthcare from the Trenches, Dr. Badia challenges the entrenched bureaucracy in the U.S. healthcare system—a bureaucracy that is only growing with each attempt to “fix” it.

“Since the implementation of the [U.S.] Affordable Care Act, healthcare in America has become an even greater bureaucratic nightmare than before,” Dr. Badia says. “What started as incremental interference in the relationship between doctor and patient with the passage of the Medicare Act of 1965 is now an impenetrable barrier made up of governmental and health care insurance industry red tape. The result is higher costs and greater inefficiencies.” Contact: Scott Lorenz, Westwind Communications, Plymouth, MI. or 734-667-2098.

What is Racism? Underlying Beliefs and Myths of Racism. Racism is built on a foundation of underlying beliefs, assumptions, and myths, many of which are unrecognized, let alone understood. (And I don’t have to understand it for it to be valid.)

Racism Myths
• Nice people cannot also act in racist ways.
• Racism can only be conscious and intentional; unaware good intentions cancels it out.
• White people who experience oppression/have suffered cannot act in racist ways.
• My race has no bearing on my perspective on the matter.
• I have proximity to people of color (POC), therefore I am free of racism.
• I have no proximity to POC, therefore I am racially innocent.
• My learning is finished/I know all I need to know.

The Real Truth
• The racial status quo is maintained by white comfort; change will be uncomfortable.
• Comfort is not the same as safety; white people are safe in discussions about racism.
• Feedback on white racism is difficult to give; feedback from POC is a gift and indicates trust.
• Feelings of guilt are normal, and the antidote is action.
• It takes courage to break with white solidarity; support those that do.
• Interrupting racism is more important than a leader’s feelings, ego, or self-image. Humility is key. Expect to grapple as you grow.
• When a leader is willing to listen, reflect, and learn, change is possible.
