Zenyatta, the Chinese, and a Re-Written Intro to the FED's Self Appointed Mission Statement

I am sitting here stunned. In addition to being a political news junkie, I am a horse racing junkie. Seeing Zenyatta lose by a nose today makes me a little queasy inside. In 20 races, today is the first day Zenyatta will not be visiting the winner's circle. Zenyatta, that charismatic filly, is my hero. She goes home healthy and that's all that matters. She is still my hero. She is pure and performed admirably... albeit a nose short. On Wednesday, the FED announced their latest monetization of our nation's debt. That is "econalese" for counterfeiting. Here is the distinction. If you need a few thousand bucks to scrape by and print some money, the Secret Service will charge you with felony counterfeiting. When Bernanke and the FED need 600 billion, they simply print it up and call it quantitative easing. When the FED counterfeits it is legal because they call it something else. They buy treasuries from their member banks and give them this made up money. The mem

Have a Drink and Read This...

Or two. For some reason I have a splitting headache.

The Rule of Law

I think they must have photo shopped this video. I just can't find a piece of tinfoil anywhere. I'd like to introduce you to a guy that believes in the rule of law. If you haven't seen William K Black, you tube has a lot of videos. In this piece, Black describes the corporate culture of theft. This culture, once ignited and allowed to go unpunished, plunged everyone into the greed abyss. Off the subject, in other news, today the FED announced another 600 billion dollar bail out. ZeroHedge now reporting that the 14.3 trillion dollar debt ceiling may be breached as soon as February. (hide snark, que up one of the good guys)

Meet the New Boss, Same As the Old Boss

The elections are over and those high value targets remain. Dick Blumenthal and Barney Frank. Wow. I am not sure what level of incompetence you must attain, but apparently voters in their districts either have jobs, their banks accounts are paying 5%, they are completely forgiving, or have quick forgetters. Turning west, Reid and Boxer stay. Murkowski wins a write in campaign in Alaska after getting ousted in the primary. Wow! Write-in winners are virtually non existent anywhere. That's got to hurt just a little bit, huh Sarah?  Unlike their eastern counterparts, I think in the west- poor opponents spelled doom in those races. That's an opinion, agreement is not required. At least Pelosi got bounced out of the speaker's chair. Republicans take the house and assure a little gridlock. Gridlock for this President is a good thing for us. Thus we will swap the Obamacare facilitator for one of the TARP bailout facilitators. Therein lies the crux of the problem. Over reaching

Let The Carnage Begin!

Meet the new boss. In the bi-annual installment of insanity that is American politics, tomorrow will mark the 25th time in my lifetime that we will "throw the bums out" and elect new bums. Until proven otherwise. My evolution has been simple. In defining damaging effects, I simply can't distinguish which party has been worse for the American people. You see, I view "damaging effects" simply. Any government that exploits people, steals our work product, or erodes our freedom and liberty. We didn't create government to enslave us. To regulate every facet of our lives. That both parties accomplish this via two different ideologies does not matter. The problem is big government progressiveness. Here is the good news. After today, we won't have to listen to ads. We won't have to read any more polls or read any more caustic comments from the left or glee from the right- no more predictions and prognostications. No more commentary or "expert&quo

Run For the Stronghold Barack

Do you remember the movie, "Thunderheart?" It is worth noting that on the eve of elections, President Obama is planning on fleeing the country. That is his solution to a potentially grieving party. Today he is simply missing. I can find no agenda. Then his two week vacation diplomatic tour starts. Pick your friends carefully. Remember Jeremiah Wright? Pay attention to those friends- even those who ghost write your books. Interesting story from the Canadian free press, 50 impeachable offenses. All in all, today's news pretty much a yawner. Boxer with Code Pink ties...check. Economic news and the usual POMO...check. Rigged balloting in several areas...check. Jerry Jones grabbing attention and apologizing for Cowboys...check. Democrats nailing plywood over windows...chec

The Left Has Nobody to Blame For It's Death...But the Left

It goes something like this. You have two hundred dollars. Your family is starving but you sure want that new I-Pod. You think you will get the I-pod and so you do. When your starving family questions the purchase, you call them names. It's about setting priorities. Imagine you are President Obama. You get to your oval office and take stock of the country. What is the most pressing problem we have? *Play Jeopardy tune in head. It must be "healthcare!" I will ignore that 14 trillion dollar debt and the collapse of the world economy and I will go on multiple vacations, golfing, and tell the world how incredibly smart I am. I will not even participate in the creation of the bill. So just who created that bill anyway? Read this. It is as though, the world's greatest problem was placed at his feet and Obama and his Congress ignored it. Pretended it wasn't even there. In fact, he did noth
