Coupe De Grace

Like many Americans, I spent most of my life distracted. Busy making a living, busy with a wife and kids, spending what time I had on leisure activities. The last thing I thought about back then was politics or the housing crisis. That all began to change in 2007. By 2008, about the time Congress and Hank Paulson ripped our country off, government and politics became the focus of much of my life. It absolutely drew my attention. I came to believe that like me, most Americans were busy living their lives. Too tired and distracted with the trappings of everyday life. In fact, that apathy if you will, is precisely what has enabled our government to enslave us. If it doesn't have a painful and immediate impact, we simply don't notice. People call aberrations like the housing collapse a "black swan" event. Perhaps. It has had a painful and immediate impact. People finally began to notice. They became angry. Government and the corporate robber barons that we refer to as

If U.S. Taxes Codes Are This Fucked Up, Why Doesn't Congress Change Them? Hint...They Don't Want To.

Hat tip to ZeroHedge.  Wouldn't you just love to have a tax rate of about 3/4s of one percent? Make a hundred thousand and pay about 750 bucks worth of Federal tax? How about a company that makes 639 billion over six or seven years and paid only 5 billion in taxes? ZeroHedge claims that the real tax rate is a shade over 3%, but you get the point. Think that's not possible? Think again. The best part about that company is that it is General Electric. The parent company of those stock touts and drones on CNBC. Think you'll ever hear them spill those beans? Not a chance in hell. See the story here: Let me spin some numbers at you. We're going to keep it low and round and create a level playing field. Obama wants to tax "wealthy" Americans. Those people making 250 grand a year or greater. Does he ever mention if that is a gross or

Barney Frank, The Face of Collapse

One of the chief architects of the economic collapse of this country is Representative Barney Frank. I don't care that he is openly gay. I don't care that the cops come to his house and let him off the hook for possession of marijuana. Barney Frank is an extreme libtard and it was his policies and influence that brought an end to discipline and good business practices. That this piece of shit has tried to cover up his tracks by co-sponsoring that banking reform bill makes me sick to my stomach. This is who bankrolls him. Scroll back if you wish- to prior elections. Frank absolutely owns the collapse and 6 trillion dollar liability of Fannie and Freddie. Barney Frank is the epitome of elitism. A career politician who has gained far too much political influence. I don't care about his home district pork barrel projects. This self serving POS has been using banking interests to bankroll his election ca

Super Hero Conspiracy Project

A model of efficiency. This is the same government that took over 1/6 of the annual GDP and is going to try and administer a health plan for 300 million people. Who say it doesn't pay to be in prison or dead? I spent a good part of today working on this silly clip. The action figures had a tough time saying anything beyond two syllables. I am going to post it here for no other reason than I got tired of editing it and I'll be damned if I am gonna waste 3 hours and not post it. I am giving it an R rating and if you happen to be a lefty, you might just want to pass altogether. I really should get a job.

We Didn't Get Here Because We Were on a Winning Streak

People are truly nuts. I took a second look at that video from 60 Minutes with all of those unemployed and highly educated 99ers in California. Folks who can't find work. Folks who have been deprived of their "standard of living" and "motorhomes." To say that these folks are spoiled would be like gazing upon a pile of dogshit and calling it health food. I just can't describe that level of unconsciousness. I will embed the video at the bottom. Have a box of Kleenex handy. But first this snip from the comments of Zero Hedge. Too funny to pass up. A man was sent to Hell for his sins. As he was being processed, he passed a room where an economist he knew was having an intimate conversation with a beautiful woman. "What a crummy deal!" The man complained. "I have to burn for all eternity and that economist spends it with that gorgeous woman." An escorting demon jabs the man with his pitchfork and shouts, "Who are you to questio

The Short Bus Cometh

I have seen this quote of President Obama's in three or four different commentary pieces. This is Obama's summary and conclusion of OUR problem AS he sees it. I'd like you to read President Obama's "analysis." Then I will offer up my "analysis." In all fairness, the term "analysis" was offered up by the original writer. Analysis being a much more palatable and enriching term than "opinion." The term "opinion" is reserved for dunderheads; those of us who can only aspire to be analysts. Out on the campaign trail, Barack Obama has given us his analysis of why his party is headed for significant losses in the election nine days hence. "Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now," said the president for whom politics did not seem so tough in 2008, "and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hardwired not to always think clear
