Options for Federal Privatization and Reform Lessons from Abroad

A privatization revolution has swept the world since the 1980s. Following the United Kingdom’s lead, governments in more than 100 countries have transferred thousands of state-owned businesses to the private sector. Railroads, airports, energy companies, postal services, and other businesses valued at more than $3 trillion have been privatized. Governments of both the political right and left have unloaded state-owned businesses.

Alexander Hamilton and American Progressivism

 

Of all the American Founders, Alexander Hamilton argued most forcefully for a powerful and active national government. Today, he is considered by some, both on the left and on the right, to have been a forerunner of contemporary progressivism. However, a close examination of the historical context and his writings proves the contrary. Hamilton’s thought differs profoundly from the progressive ideas of the 20th and 21st centuries. His vigorous defense of private property, his understanding of the necessary limits of constitutional government, and—above all—his adherence to the natural rights doctrine all point to his essential conservatism.

Congress created the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in 2001. TSA’s main activity is operating security screening at more than 450 commercial airports across the nation, with 62,000 employees and an annual budget in 2013 of $7.9 billion. After more than a decade of experience, it is clear that the creation of TSA and the federal takeover of airport screening was a mistake. Auditors have found that TSA’s screening performance has been no better, and possibly worse, than private screening. And TSA has become known for mismanagement, dubious investments, and security failures. Most airports in Europe and Canada use private companies for their passenger and baggage screening. That practice creates a more efficient and innovative security structure, and it allows governments to focus on gathering intelligence and conducting analysis rather than on trying to manage a large workforce. Congress should seriously consider abolishing the TSA.

Competitive Fee Structure

 

… but if you are looking for the cheapest, you are probably best served by looking elsewhere…

… in addition, due to an extremely busy workload, if it is absolutely critical to have a rapid turnaround in your work & you are inclined to make repeated calls to check on the status, someone else would probably suit you better …

New tax clients are expected to provide copies of their last 3 years of tax returns and provide permission to contact prior accountant to resolve any issues, if necessary.

 

Regretfully, I am unable to accept new clients who have unfiled prior-year’s tax returns,  who are not current with all prior tax obligations, are involved in any marijuana-related business ventures, use marijuana, have any income from gambling, are personal-injury attorneys or copyright or patent trolls.

 

Though not required, supporters of President Donald J. Trump, Governor Kevin Stitt, the National Rifle Association & clients who are cheerful, optimistic and NOT easily offended are generally preferred. Absolutely NO SOCIALISTS allowed beyond the front door, however!

 

Due to the alleged gang activity and drug dealing at the nearby Chelsea Manor Apts. & 7-11 Convenience Store, I would personally recommend avoiding that area. Some believe the OKC Police Dept. has become wussified and are too intimidated to confront these gangbangers and put them behind bars where they rightfully belong.
