The Autonomous 18 Wheeler and the Economy

Salon - Robert Reich: America’s economy is a nightmare of our own making. A good article about what went wrong with the economy and the lies that we believed.

Yahoo - Business Insider - Here's how much income is taxed around the world. There is a lot of money and time spent trying to convince people to hate income taxes; but, they always end up missing the point and cheating the numbers. Income tax is only one tax, property tax, sales tax, value added taxes (used in Europe). If you lessen one tax, you must make up for it by increasing other taxes. All taxes other than an income tax are harder on people who have less money to begin with. The income tax is the fairest tax because it taxes people based on how much they have benefited from their society and the infrastructure that their society has invested in. I personally believe in a flat income tax, that is a tax where everyone is taxed at the same percentage.

TruckYeah - Freightliner Just Revealed The First Real Road-Legal Autonomous Big Rig. It even has it's own license plate and is legal in Nevada. This is not decades off, it is not years off, it is legal and in effect now.

Yahoo - Business Insider - Aide to California state attorney accused of running an occult police force claiming to be 3,000 years old. The supposed police force was called the Masonic Fraternal Police Department.
