It must be great

Friday, May 17th, 2013

It must be great to break the law and get to retire with a pension and other perks rather than get sent to jail.

How do I get that kind of job?

Oh yeah,

Go to work for the Feds

To Get Reelected, All Options are on the Table

            Beware the
Ides of Fall

 

As the Presidential election looms ever closer, the
prospects for  the Presidents reelection
are becoming  more cloudy.

 

The economy is drifting.

 

Unemployment is stubbornly high.

 

The psyche of the Nation is in turmoil.

 

We are being divided along racial, economic, and gender
lines.

 

The hope and change he promised is a tragic joke.

 

There is a health care law that has been rammed down our
throats against our will.

 

Our allies have been denigrated and rebuked,

 

The Presidents philosophy  appears to be a form of National Socialism.
When he appoints Czars to work outside the framework of Advise and Consent, he
sends a strong signal that he is the Boss and will do what he wants.

 

In this framework of ego and control, the prospect of losing
an election is an anathema to the ruling party.

 

If the prospects for reelection continue to turn negative, I
fear that our system will be placed in jeopardy.

 

There are many things that a philosophically inspired leader
can do to change the course of a free election, especially when he feels that
he is doing them for our own good.

 

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

 

The progressives have plotted and planned for this President
and this power for many decades.

 

Spain’s
elections  were influenced  by terrorist attacks in their subway system 3
days before the election.

 

FDR was a war time president who could not be defeated.

 

The plotting of the Jews to take over Germany
gave Hitler a path to gaining power.

 

History is filled with examples of acts of “god” that
influenced the course of human affairs.

BEWARE THE IDES OF THIS FALL

 

 

This Fluke Smells Very Fishy

Monday, March 5th, 2012

The creation of a National hysteria revolving around a woman’s  ability to afford a $ 2.00 condom or a $9.00 purchase of birth control pills is fishy at best.

The fact that the woman is a $ 40000.00 / year Georgetown Law School student , living a free and easy life while working towards a post graduate job at some liberal law firm of political activist political committee  seems to be somewhat of a fluke in the context of modern society.

Your sexual activity and sexual orientation is your business.

Do what you want,but leave the rest of us alone.

We don’t care what you do in your bedroom, I pay for my private life, you pay for your’e.

You can “burn your bre, I will burn my underpants, .”

You don’t care about my actions, I sure don’t care about yours.

You would never have been my type, and I was never desperate enough to…well better not go there,  the press might jump on my case too.

The GDP a Myth of Biblical Proportions

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

     When the Government dilutes the money supply by printing fiat currency, the result is inflationary.

     In the case of the Federal Reserve , the printing presses are running so fast and furious, that they have already worn out 2 sets of printing presses in the 3 years of the Obama  reign.

     The inflationary pressures are a constant push on prices and a depressant on the purchase power of the American dollar. It takes more and more dollars to buy less and less items.

     Anyone who is responsible forgoing to the grocery store, realizes that the same number of shopping bags, now cost more almosrt weekly, and they also note that much of the packaging has been changed to shrink the amount in the package , while attempting to hide behind a larger box or other creative packaging.

     Yesterday, the Government announced an increase of 2.5% in Gross Domestic Production(GDP) for the 3rd quarter of 2011.

     That announcement coupled with the  European bail out of Greece (another fiasco, that will result in more and more bailouts, and  more and more unbacked paper currency in Europe..Inflation is a many splendid thing..or not!) , sent the stock market soaring.

     It always suprises me, that the so called sophisticated traders and investors can misread the news so dramatically.

     The inflation that is creeping into our economy makes everything more expensive, resulting in more spending for the same items. Hence an increase in GDP….What? We are being burried under paper, our standard of living is dying one paper bill at a time, and the world rejoices at the wonderful news.

     No double dip recession, the economy is growing!

     No default in Greece, the presses are working overtime around the world.

     The real tragedy of this fiscal disaster is that  there is abundant paper and ink. Perhaps the presses will overheat and refuse to continue printing, or perhaps society will decide that accepting printed paper in exchange for food and shelter is a bad idea,-

Do Not Believe the Wall Street Rally

Friday, August 12th, 2011

My dear friends,

I have told you a number of times during the past 24-36 months, ” do not believe the short term  rallies in the market.”

The economy is in bad shape, and still needs another 18 months to bottom out.

This is assuming that Obama does not get reelected.

If he wins a second term, all bets are off.

When I say bottom out, the last part of this shakeout will be the worst part. As a people we Americans are very adaptable, and have a short memory.

They have gotten us used to a lower standard of living. Gas at 3.75 a gallon is better than 4.25, but still better part of .80-.90 higher than last year.

We are told to drive less, to carpool, and to stock up on sweaters for the winter.  …And  we do it, setling into a less comfortable standard of living.

We are told the rest of the World will love us again if me freeze in the winter, sweat in the Summer,  eat less , and stock up on foods that are generic, and cheaper, meanwhile less fresh and healthy.

Well the rest of the world does not love us, and eating cheap fatty foods is well represented in the spreading rear ends of the American population.

I don’t want to be cold in the winter. I don’t like bulky sweaters. I’ve worked all my life and feel that i’ve earned the right to wear what I want, and heat and air condition my surroundings any way that I choose.

All we have to do is find or keep a job, and pray that inflation and a dropping Stock Market doesn’t wipe out what little we have leftafter loosng our homes.

Sell this bill of goods to someone else.

Beware the Market, especially if the Tax and spend party wins again and does its thing.

America we are in trouble

A Perception of Our Future,* The Good * The Bad * The Very Ugly, View # 2 The Bad

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

The Worlds Leftist Leaning governments sell their populations  on the concept of fiat money.

They embrace  the Keynesian economic theory that printing massive amounts of paper money  will solve the world’s daunting economic woes, when in fact the printing is a core problem with the system.

Over time, most currencies lose most of their value.

Inflation runs rampant, destroying the middle class. This has the effect of handicaping the most productive people in society; the primary segment in society that produces more tha they consume.

The negative economic climate leaves succesful corporations with $billions in cash, reluctant to expand in the turbulent  environment.

Rather than hold large sums of currency, they use the “stimulus” money to but their own stock, or to fund mergers and acquisitions.

This infusion of corporate cash into the stock markets, results in a stock market boom in the midst of a spreading depression.

The U S Government, believing that it has the obligation to “make everything fair, and to spread the wealth” embarks on new draconian ways to control the economy.

Price controls.

Wage controls.

Limiting Corporate compensation.

Eliminating corporate tax write offs “labeled tax loopholes” takes away incentives for investments in new technology

Petroleum products become increasinglt expensive and rationing becomes the accepted norm.

A Government agency is set up to enforce the mountain of new laws and regulations.

The population becomes increasingly  dependent upon the government for survival.

Politics becomes the best way to manipulate the masses, and the surest way to accumulate wealth at the public trough.

The flow of people fleeing the United States turns into a Tsunami, as life becomes increasingly grim and restrictive.

Perceptions of Our Future * The Good * The Bad * The Very Ugly* View #1 The Good

                                       VIEW # 1 THE GOOD

Word leaders have an epiphany and come to the realization that keeping interest rates artifically low , is having the effect of destroying their currencies.

Cheap money and flooding the markets with unbacked paper currency is having the effect to diluting the wealth of their citizenry.

The resulting creeping inflation is lowering the living standards worldwide.

This is  creating scarcity as more paper chases a finite amount of consumables, including food, fuel, and clean water.

The realization that we are creating a scenario where bailouts will continue to grow, leads out wise leaders worldwide, to make a series of dramatic fiscal decisions, beginning with a return to a gold backed currency.

Interest rates are allowed to rise, and ” Too Big ti Fail” becomes ” Too Big and Expensive to Save.”

The Federal Reserve is closed and a return to Fiscal Responsibility is reluctantly agreed to by the President and Congress.

There are massive protests, and disruptions in the economy resulting in the Government downsizing for the first time in 100 years.

Useless and duplicate departments are closed.

Many taxes are lowered or eliminated.

40% of Federal employees are let go.

The Military closes 90 % of foreign bases, and brings the troops home.

The war on drugs is ended, and crime rates in Mexico, and the United States drops radically.

Controlled devaluation of the dollar  is instituted, and much of out national debt is brought into line by the painful readjustment of our economy to a sustainable level of work and direct reward.

When our entreprenurial spirit is allowed to grow without heavy regulations, our economy begins to respond.

Our GDP embarks upon a decade of unprecedented growth, reaching 6-7% a year, and ushering the new Golden Age of Civilization.

Is This 1937 or 2011 Deja Vu Part II

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

With QE2 ending at the end of June, the Treasury Department will be forced to go back to global markets in order to sell Treasury Bonds.

Interest rates are sure to rise, dealing a severe blow to the already fragile recovery.

Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke’s Qualitative Easing plan has failed to stimulate economic growth, but has done a masterful job of encouraging inflation and a weakening dollar.

Armed with a printing press, and some  obsolete economic theories, he  is fated to  become a Quixotic figure  in World history.

A printing press should be used for printing books, instruction manuals and even Bibles, but not to stimulate free enterprise economic growth and investments.

The insidious  inflation is having the result of disrupting economic growth, rather than encouraging it.

How can an entreprenure invest in a new enterprise when inflation makes price stability questionable.

This coupled with increasingly stringent government regulations and the onset of Obamacare have done a masterful job of strangling the economy.

According to a recently released report, the combined public and private sectors of our economy spend upwards of a $2 billion just on interest on all our debt.

The borrowed money which this interest services, has been spent on consumption rather than capital investment.

This is leaving nothing available for real growth or new creations.

QE2 has done nothing but service our debt and given a momentary artifical bounce in an otherwise floundering economy.

The current and proposed future taxes which are being piled upon the “wealthy” (ie the entreprenure) is making the  economic recovery  increasingly reminiscent of a black hole.

Cooking the Books to Manipulate our Perception

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Much of the statistics which the Main Stream Media presents to us as “gospel” , is actually “good” news based upon group – think.

 Highly misleading statistics based upon  political expediency.

This morning , the unemployment statistics reflected 180,000 + new private sector jobs created and an unemployment rate that fell to 8.9 %.

This is great news and heralds  a further steps towards economic recoveryand a renewal of the American dream!!! 

Yay!!!

Let the good times roll !!!

WRONG !!

The reduced 8.9 % unemploment represents only the number of people actually drawing unemployment cheks.

How about those who’s unemployment insurance has expired.

How about those unemployed who have given up on looking for work.

How about people who have been forced totake part time jobs , or “1099” off the books low wage employment.

The shameless agenda , constantly fostered upon an unsophisticated public, is irresponsible  and down right unethical  if not criminally misleag.

Wall Street embraces the Government statistics, while Main Street continues to plod along, bewildered by the facts and the continuing lack of jobs, and the insidious encroachment of real inflation( including food and transportation costs).

“Never the Twain Shall Meet”

Why the World is Going Broke. Does Anyone Care ?

Friday, May 21st, 2010

Why is the world going broke, and how did we get into this mess.

Start with a homeowner who was granted a mortgage even though he did not deserve one, and couldn’t afford one.

During a dip in the economic cycle, he looses his job, and can’t keep up with his mortgage payments.

He falls behind and ultimately defaults on his loan.

The mortgage company that brokered his loan  to the lending institution , takes a loss on the bad debt and goes broke.

The lending bank has a growing number of  defaulting  mortgages, and fails.

The failed bank had previously packaged and sold its mortgage loans as “derivatives”, to another bank.

The larger bank which bought the first bank’s derivative debt “bomb”, now goes broke.

The government springs into action, bailing out the failied bank, and assumes their bad debt.

As the derivative bombs continue to explode, they turn into a “blitzkreig” which threatens our entire financial system.

The government steps up and spends trillions of dollars to bail out and prop up the “entire world” .

While spending all of this bail out and now stimulus money which it does not have, the government continues to :

Provide Social Security, money , which it does not have.

Provide unemployemnt insurance  for upwards of 20 % of the population for almost 2 years, money , which it does not have.

Provide Medicare and Medicaid and other free health care services, with  money that it does not have.

Provide another trillion dollar health care reform coverage, with money, that it does not have.

Bail out the Bankers with TARP funds, which it does not have.

Bail out the auto industry with money it does not have.

Bail out and protect labor unions, with money that it does not have

When smaller countries, governments, states, counties, and municipalities can no longer afford the growing tide of the social welfare state, they turn to larger governments and countries to bail them out.

Investors seeing the dangerous rising tide of debt and insolvency in the world, buy big government bonds because they are “safer”.

When big governments run out of printers ink, the Ship of State finds inself sailing in rivers of red ink.

Red ink is not as buoyant as clean clear water, and the Ship of State is in danger of sinking.

Disaster lurks !
