Fiscal Friday – CBO’s Findings

Friday, January 30th, 2015

On Tuesday the Congressional Budget Office released their annual Budget and Economic Outlook. Outlook? Not so good.

Fiscal Friday – State Of Our Debt

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Since President Obama forgot to mention our $18 trillion in national debt during the State of the Union address, I thought I’d address it for this week’s Fiscal Friday.

John Boehner, your tan is awful!

Fiscal Friday – Social Security vs. Ponzi Scheme

Friday, January 16th, 2015

What’s better than Fiscal Friday? Fiscal Friday and football!

Today I’m comparing the matchup between Social Security and a Ponzi Scheme.

A few video highlights:
– When Social Security started, there were 9 workers for every 1 recipient. Today is almost 2 to 1.
– By 1960 Congress started raiding the Social Security trust fund, to the tune of $2.6 trillion.
– Money paid into Social Security today is being paid out today.
– The Social Security Trust Fund runs out by 2033, and in order for the government to keep the program going, benefits will be cut 25%.

And here’s the kicker…
-In 1960, the Supreme Court ruled in Flemming v. Nestor “entitlement to Social Security Benefits are not a contractual right.” That means your benefits can be cut OR eliminated at any time.

If you think that’s pretty dang unacceptable, head over to A Generation Empowered and click “I Agree.” This is our generation, and we have the power to change it!

ReebokCrossFit

A little CrossFit Fitspo meets Fashion Friday. Showing some love to my favorite box, CFSM, and two of my favorite athletic brands, Reebok and Under Armour.

I ordered my custom Reebok Nano 4.0’s in November, knowing I’d need a little motivation post-holidays. Needless to say, they’ve got me beasting squats and busting out burps!

As for Under Armour, I love a good compression short. Gotta keep everything in place while working out, and they make the best. I also traded up my Nike workout gloves for Under Armour’s, which have these cool gel grip and ventilation. A definite must for any female athlete. Callouses are cool, but your man doesn’t want to feel them.

Have you always wanted to try CrossFit, but too afraid to try? Looking to scope a new box? CrossFit Santa Monica is doing a friends drop-in free day tomorrow. If you’re my homie, hit me up. I’ll be attending the 11 AM class, and might even blow off some steam at 10 AM boxing too.

After all, swimsuit season never ends in LA!

Thanks to Shane for helping with these pics!!
