Betsy DeVos Before Educational Choice

One of the biggest platforms that Secretary of Education Betsy Devos stands on is the ability for parents to choose where their children go to school – educational choice. But, what happened before Betsy DeVos had the opportunity to be a national influencer with educational choice? She was, of course, still focusing on educational choice and working to make it a reality.

As early as 1993, Betsy was pushing for educational choice to make things better for children who didn’t have a lot of opportunities when it came to private or better-than public education. She wanted to make children have the same type of opportunities as other people who wanted to be able to do more. She created opportunities for children who were poor or who came from poor backgrounds be able to have the same opportunities as those who came from families that had a lot of money for the children to be able to go to private schools.

She did all of these things through two major avenues. The first was to create a voucher program for children to be able to go to private schools. Parents who were unable to afford anything other than free public school would be able to get vouchers and use them to send their children to private schools where they would have the chance at the best education possible. It was a first for education and gave parents something that they could have control over when it came to their children’s educational opportunities.

The other way that Betsy DeVos was charitable and helped poor children was to create charter schools. These were similar to private schools but they are free like public school. There is no need for a voucher for these schools but they do have limited opportunities for children to be able to accepted into them. Betsy knew that this would be a great opportunity and children could enjoy the majority of the same benefits that private school offered. She didn’t want parents to have any type of financial burden from the schools though so she helped launch the free charter schools.

The way that DeVos was able to do all of this was through her foundation that she created. Her and her husband created the organization to help different charities and to help people have a chance at true educational choice. It was something that they were able to do through the foundation and with the help of their family members. Nearly 30 years later, Betsy, Dick and the rest of their family are still working to make sure that they are going to have educational opportunities for each of the children who are in poor economic circumstances with no previous choices.

IOS has also expanded the flavors available on Amazon in lip balm. The company has focused on innovative, tasty options that had not yet been seen in a lip balm product.

Tim Armour Makes The Case For Active Funds

Warren Buffett has often said that passively managed funds are better than actively managed funds as they tend to have better returns. In an article that Tim Armour wrote for CNBC, he makes the case that this isn’t necessarily true. While Armour agrees that there are too many actively managed funds that are a disservice to their investors, he says that’s not always the case.

Tim Armour writes that active versus passive isn’t really the argument. Many mutual funds have poor returns due to excessive fees and trading. The key is to find actively managed funds that are low cost and keep trades to a minimum. Armour also says that the key to finding a good actively managed fund is finding those where the fund manager has a large part of his or her own money in it. He goes on to write that an overlooked problem with index funds is that they are completely exposed to market volatility and losses when the market inevitably have a downturn. He said that one of the best ways to grow your nest egg is to do better than others when the markets go down.

He has spent his entire 34-year career in the financial industry at Capital Group, having first joined the company in its The Associates Program after he graduated from college. Armour earned his degree in economics at Middlebury College.

Tim Armour has written other articles where he makes the case that you don’t need to settle for average returns. His advice is to have an active manager who “earns their keep”. If your money is in an active fund that is trailing the index, Armour’s advice is to find another fund manager.

End Citizen United is leading the Fight against Electoral Corruption

End Citizens United is a donor-funded political movement that aims at reforming the America’s campaign finance system. The movement was launched on 1st March 2015. With a good grassroots backing, the movement is determined to frustrate billionaires’ efforts of buying elections by mounting pressure on lawmakers to take the necessary action. End Citizen United believes that by the Supreme Court passing the End Citizen rule, the amount of corruption in the electoral system would significantly increase.


The Leadership


The leadership team of End Citizen United includes the Executive Director Tiffany Muller, the Political Director Jody Murphy, the Finance Director Jordan Wood, the Operations Director Erin Fyffe, and the Operations Coordinator Rachel McGovern. The board members are Ron Barber, Christopher Massicotte, Lanae Erickson Hatalsky, and Jessica Vanden Berg.


Supporting the Democrats


In the approach to the recent U.S. elections, a new political movement was launched. The movement aimed at mobilizing campaign funds to the tune of tens of millions of dollars for Democratic candidates. The movement was dubbed End Citizens United. Ultimately, the group’s long-term objective was to petition for a constitutional amendment against the Citizen United decision made in 2010 by the Supreme Court that gave rise to super PACs. By August 2015, over 300,000 liberal supporters had signed the petition.


According to the movement’s communication director, Mr. Richard Carbo, End Citizen United would only finance campaigns for reformers – people who were ready to challenge the existing campaign finance laws. Most importantly, the candidates to be supported had to stand up against the Citizen United decision and all the other dark money avenues. End Citizens United would drum up support for their candidates through direct mailers, polling, and television ads.


An Uphill Task


The movement quest to amend the constitution, however, was an uphill task specifically because no constitutional amendment attempt has been successful in America since 1992. This comes as no surprise bearing in mind that the bar for any constitutional amendment in the U.S. is very high.


  • The amendment must be supported by not less than two-thirds of the house and the senate


  • Three-quarters of all the states must ratify the amendment.



Rick Hasen, a political science professor at Irvine School of Law, argued that as much as it would be hard for End Citizen United to achieve their constitutional amendment goal, the group would impart the much-needed political pressure on the Supreme Court, keeping the court in check.


Why End Citizens Won’t Fund Republicans


Despite the Republican congressmen and their supporters warming up towards the movement’s mission, End Citizens United would not support Republican candidates. This was explained on the group’s website noting that the Republican leadership in Congress was in support of the Supreme Court’s decision and, thus, the Republicans lawmakers would not be relied on to bring any campaign finance reform.

For my son and his friends


When refinancing my house, I was able to slash my payments by a large amount considering my mortgage. Refinancing my home was a smart move financially. However, I have not been able to pass this savvy along to my son. In spite of my constant trying and nagging, he continually got himself into horrible financial situations that he was only able to solve with the type of lucky things that seem to happen to young adults when you are trying to teach them to be responsible. Once, he was behind in his notes by thousands of dollars. Without knowing the details, I simply refused to help him, but as luck would have it, he won a few thousand dollars on lottery scratch off ticket. This windfall gave him the audacity to trade that car in and get something everyone knew he could truly not afford.



When I asked him why he would take on a potentially lethal blow to his credit when he could not afford to pay the very large payments, he looked at me and directly said that if he got in trouble it would only be a matter of time before he won a few more thousand on lottery scratch off tickets. I was so absolutely astounded by his lack of personal responsibility that it was a few months before I could even muster the ability speak to him again. However, the occasion on which we spoke again was so he could explain how he could not pay his notes and that he was hiding the car so the company could not repossess it. So that my son was not arrested, I called the car company immediately to only find that his notes were not as far behind a he thought because his mother had paid some of his arrears in order to protect his credit rating.


With this information, I searched the Web to find him a refinancing company when I remembered the company that saved my sisters credit and car. The company was called Ignition Financial, and they allowed us to save our son’s only true possession, his okay credit score. Since then, he has made better decisions, but his friends, not so much. Just yesterday I heard him giving his friend the web address at I hope his friend learns his lesson after Ignition Financial rescues him from a terrible financial future.
