Speaker Boehner: Listen to the Tea Party

The budget deal struck this weekend between Republicans and Democrats to cut $38 billion from this year’s budget leaves many conservatives conflicted. On one hand, it’s only a fraction of the $1.6 TRILLION budget deficit, but on the other hand, this battle has changed the entire dynamic of the budget fight.

Liberals Pro-Choice...But Not About Education

Would you like to see a pretty brazen example of how liberals ignore truth, facts and reason in favor of their bankrupt ideology?

SEC Requires New ADV Part 2 Disclosure Form

SEC Requires New ADV Part 2 Disclosure Form

Investment advisory firms are required to file disclosure documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In the past, investment advisors had to complete two forms each year: ADV Part 1 and ADV Part 2.

The requirement changed from a checkbox response to a “plain English” narrative brochure. Even if the nature of a firm’s business has not changed, added information and the new format are mandatory.
