LAUNCH WEEK BEGINS! This is Launch Week for two new releases from me…two very humorous books based on my real life experiences. I wouldn’t have believed what happened unless it happened to me and it did! The first is my satirical novel, Harvey Drinkwater & The Cult Of Savings.   Source: Harvey Drinkwater and The Cult […]

  With the shenanigans going on in Congress over the repeal of Obamacare, it is with great pride that Harvey’s Blog nominates Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Orrin Hatch for this year’s Moby’s Dick Award for excellence in ethics. It’s no secret that the Senate is mulling over the House of Representatives’ disastrously […]

Harvey’s Blog is proud to announce a new nominee for the Globby Award recognizing excellence in the pursuit of profits. BigPharma seems to have an unfair advantage when it comes to hogging the Globby nominations. These BigCorps put competitors to shame with their monopolistic powers and their talents at finding sweet ways of milking Medicaid […]

If you don’t watch Fox News, read Breitbart or the Drudge Report, or listen to Rush Limbaugh, you likely don’t have any idea who Seth Rich was. If, however, you are a devotee of those dubious news sources, you have been fed a grab bag of unsubstantiated allegations designed to make you think that Rich […]

The Moby’s Dick Award goes to corporate executives or politicians that display the highest standards of ethics in the pursuit of profit. Whether it’s milking customers or fleecing the public, there never seems to be a shortage of nominees. The ink hadn’t even dried on his latest out-of-court settlement when it was learned that Fox […]

In the Survivor’s Guide chapter, ‘The Social Media Death Trap’, I explain how employees misunderstand their rights to freedom of speech when they work for a corporation. The video attached is a classic example of someone who – even with the most careful separation of her work from her private life – got caught in […]

Navient is this month’s Globby Award nominee for Excellence in Ethics by a Corporation. It’s CEO justifies poor service to student loan debtors this way: “…in court, Navient made clear that the company’s main job isn’t helping debtors; it’s getting them to cough up cash for creditors like its biggest client, the U.S. Department of […]

For anyone confused by the contradictions in Trump’s public pronouncements, here is the key to understanding the president-elect: He will say whatever he needs to say to please whatever audience sits in front of him at a given moment.

I wondered how long it would take for post-truth maestro Newt Gingrich to step forward as a nominee for this year’s Joseph Gobbles Award. Alternative reality is the middle name of this outstanding spokesman for the cause of post-truth. He should know. Mr. Gingrich writes alternative history novels which in his imaginative mind represent the […]

Finally! I wondered how far back the rules would allow us to go to grab nominees for this year’s Globby Award. The story about how Wells Fargo bilked millions… yes, millions… of customers with bogus fees for new accounts seemed like stale old news. But you can’t keep a good corporation down when it comes […]

There is absolutely no doubt that whatever magic dust the Trump campaign used to bamboozle voters worked like a spell from a Harry Potter film. But what were the secret ingredients in the potion and which of many wizards were behind the curtains concocting the brew? Was it Kellyanne Conway, who could make snake oil taste […]

Should we just end the competition and give the 2017 Joseph Gobbles Post-Truth Award to Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller right now? I mean hands-down this guy has nailed it. Lies are Truth. Truth is Fiction. Facts are Lies. And he has no responsibility for any of it. Mr. Miller has 330,000 followers on Facebook. […]

Nominees for the 2017 Moby’s Dick Award are coming in thick and fast (or should that be long & limp?) Since bad corporate behavior is the focus of Harvey’s Blog, you would expect business people to predominate the early favorites. But now a new hybrid monster is emerging from under the bed: the businessman (or […]

The coming increase in the funding of charter schools, as advocated by the incoming Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will drive the public and private education systems in different directions. From Michigan to North Carolina the examples stand out like pimples on a pig’s back. In North Carolina, public schools are getting a lot less, while […]

Billionaire Betsy DeVos has been named Education Secretary and her appointment is a grim foreshadowing of the direction public education is likely to take under the Trump administration. Her track record in championing for-profit charter schools is a reminder that you can make a profit on anything if you try hard enough. Western societies have […]

The first 2017 Globby Award nomination goes to Nestle, the biggest FoodCorp in the world for gaming the system to profit from a clean natural resource while people 120 miles away enjoy the privilege of using a poisoned water supply in the city of Flint. For the princely sum of $200 in permit fees, Nestle […]

Politico: Donald Trump wasn’t the only person to see opportunity in the 2008 housing collapse. As the economy recovered from the rubble of failed banks, foreclosed homes and government bailouts, Steven Mnuchin emerged a winner. That success is coming back to haunt the hedge fund manager and Hollywood producer who is Trump’s choice for Treasury […]
