On Line Poker- We're Coming To Get You

Forget all of those millions of fraudulent liars loans. Thousands of people originating non performing loans for people who would never make the payments. Rating agencies giving fraudulent "AAA" status to bundled and bad mortgages- stealing investor money all over the world. The greatest controlled fraud of all time got a big old walk-courtesy of President Obama.

Rather than prosecute a few thousand of their own crooked bankers on Wall St., New York State decided to get tough on three internet poker sites. You see, those are easy targets. They don't grease government. In the court of public opinion, the vast majority of Americans won't care. They know that.

That's what this is really all about. Government cannot find a way to steal a large portion of the proceeds from off-shore gaming companies. They don't pay the government vigorish. Taxes. If government could extract 30 or so percent, trust me, internet gaming would be legal. Pay us and we'll make you all legal. That's why gaming is legal in 48 states. Government always gets it's cut.

I quit playing on line many years ago. I won a significant amount of money, called for a check. They sent it and just as soon as they did- I couldn't win a hand. Interesting, it was as though they never wanted me withdrawing money from them again. Weird. Not heart broken over this.

The Worst President Ever Continues to Elevate His Game To Previously Undiscovered Levels of Worst

Benzos and vodka. I think that might be our only out. And I thought Bush was an idiot.

Frankenstein Government Pays 1/2 Billion To People Who Didn't Qualify for Homebuyer Tax Credit

This shit just never ends. Read this. Wow.

Trump Calls Obama the Worst President in History

I agree.

Here's President "Why Can't We All Just Get Along" slamming the GOP. He ain't the solution- he's the problem.

More Stupid Shit From D.C.- Secret Holidays

Emancipation Day. Who dreams up this shit? A local holiday- I guess only D.C. celebrates it. Yet nobody can really explain precisely why the IRS was forced to push back the tax deadline from April 15 to April 18 because of a city holiday. Fascinating, another mystery. Nobody cares because it gives us three more days to with hold paying the government's largesse. More government transparency. Let's make every day Emancipation Day and not pay taxes at all! Woohoo!! Frankenstein Government for President!

Bankers, Credit Reporting Agencies, Expatriation and Other Fantasies

There are some things in life that defy explanation. Women, mattress tags, the tax code, and home loans come to mind. Today, I am focused on home loans.

Four years ago, I packed up my life and hit the road. No debt, everything paid for. Just me, my Jeep and my motorcycle. I want to tell you about some of the ridiculous things that have happened to me. One of my favorite incidents occurred nearly right away- in New Orleans.

In New Orleans, I tried to rent an apartment without a job. You would have thought I was a fucking alien. I had six figures in the bank, a credit score north of 750, plenty of references, I offered to pay the entire year (about 10k) in advance, and they would not do it. The 20 something property manager girl told me they would not rent to me because I did not have a job. No shit. What if they could not evict me, she asked.

Common sense is a rare commodity. Mostly I've found, financial people, do not rely on it too much. They like to dwell in the "glass is always half empty" world of minutia and details which don't amount to anything in the big picture.

So for the last 6 months, I have been dealing with and trying to buy one of two short sale homes I had made offers on. Both are owned by Bank of America (of course) and their shitty mortgage portfolio. So not only do you have to jump through their hoops- and the hoops of the 2nd mortgage holder and negotiators- but you have to jump through the hoops of your own bank. I forgot how fucking difficult these Masters of Minutia can make the process. In fact, it's a wonder anything gets done.

To a bank, in the current environment, a potential homeowner is an adversary. The enemy. They have demanded everything from me except a cat scan and a blood test. Forget that archaic idea that you are a customer- somebody they make money from. In the current environment, the one THEY created, you are somehow treated with apprehension and animosity. That is the world I find myself in. A bunch of detail oriented bean counters that can't figure out that a guy with a guaranteed income for life, no debt, and a debt to income ratio of 20% after the home loan, might have the capacity to pay the fucking loan.

Oh and those credit reporting agencies. If there was ever an industry SCREAMING for regulation- it is that one. What a fucking scam. If a creditor reports some arbitrary and derogatory item- there is no due process. No opportunity for you to defend yourself. And unlike some derogatory item they report- it will take you FOREVER to remove an error. Credit reporting is a business that finds you guilty until proven innocent and they will hurt you financially. Credit reporting, as it exists now, should be illegal. Credit reporting is libelous and in dire need of reform.

Ok, I feel better now. I am told that all of the money I have in the bank- money that I make nothing on- would buy a nice home in some other country. Like Belize with half naked women in bikinis on the beach. Just pay cash. No ass kissing, no interest, no thieving bankers treating me like the enemy. I gotta tell ya, those are some things to like. I can almost smell the ocean now. Coconut smelling sun tan lotion. Half naked women. Big fish. Warm sun. Young, half naked women. Ahhh...maybe I don't need that home loan after all.

Obama Cries Wolf One Too Many Times, Gold and Silver Give Him the Finger

Sweet. Huge run up in precious metals today- just after Obama's latest rousing speech on cutting the budget. Precious metals traders not buying Barack's usual bullshit...what's he going to do for an encore?

Worker's Compensation Fraud Winner! Illinois!

This has to be some of the greatest fraud in the United States. Not a coincidence that our President comes from Illinois. This amount of fraud is mind boggling.

Unemployment Up, PPI Up, Gold and Silver Up, Obama's Stock Down

I couldn't bring myself to listen to Obama yesterday evening. Seriously. The guy is so full of shit that he defies belief. He has zero credibility. Even the Wall St. Journal has given up on Obama.

Unemployment claims went up drastically this week- following a mandatory upward revision from last week. Producer prices were higher than anticipated. Gold and silver were up.

Let me state two obvious things. When Obama talks about "future" cuts- this is patent bullshit. Not only is he kicking the can down the road but future politicians are not bound to obey any guidelines or legislation. They find ways around that. The only legitimate way for Obama to gain credibility is to end his rhetorical bullshit and actually CUT deficit spending. Come up with a project for reducing existing debt NOW.

That's why I can't listen to this guy. He is just full of shit and worthless. At a time when this country needed a leader- they sent this guy. What a disaster. Wirecutter pretty much nails it in his own beautiful way.

Erin Burnett called the IMF and world currencies a Ponzi Scheme this morning on CNBC. I heard it.

Gold and silver. Winning.

How To Spot and Identify Moonbats

In the United States, approximately 52% of the voting public at any given time, can be characterized as Moonbat. Moonbats or statists are very often trusting, well educated, and always- completely unconscious. They generally go to college as rebellious young adults and become indoctrinated by Moonbat college professors. Moonbats acquire a set of beliefs. Often, they will cling to these beliefs forever. The belief will never be consciously examined again. Because they think quite highly of themselves, Moonbats always think that they are better educated than their opposition. When confronted by a sound set of facts that disprove their ridiculous beliefs- Moonbats will often devolve into name calling.From Wiki...Moonbat is a term used in United States politics as a political epithet referring to progressives or leftists.

The problem with Moonbats is that they defy all reason. You cannot change their thinking because they adamantly believe they are intellectually superior to you already. This makes dealing with them almost impossible. They are collectivists and statists. They are almost always atheists. They think government is the solution. Unfortunately, the Moonbats are defended by laws which prohibit us from beating the shit out of them.

So the way I see it, we can't beat the shit out of all of the Moonbats nor can we kill them and make it look like an accident. Like Jonestown. So the only option left to us is to try and identify Moonbats so that we can simply avoid the fuckers. I come from an incubator- an absolute microcosm- of statists. I have pondered why that is. I have identified clues and hints- things that will help you identify a Moonbat by simply listening and observing them. Having identified a Moonbat- what you do next is up to you.

Moonbats cling to old beliefs. They come from places like the left coast, schools like Cal Berkeley and USC. Moonbat cities like San Francisco, Portland, or Seattle make me very wary. Anytime an unknown person tells me that they went to college and live in a large city- I immediately start thinking potential Moonbat until proven otherwise. Occupations can be important. Moonbats gravitate towards occupations that they think support their beliefs. Environmentalists, therapists, teachers, consultants, that sort of thing. The real key to spotting a Moonbat is what they do with their free time. Moonbats are active and healthy. They select outdoor activities. They like to drink and smoke pot as long as they can eat some organic food in between. Pay attention to how they eat. Look at what they drive. They drive green cars, Beemers and Volvos, shit like that. Sometimes they have stickers like "let peace break out" "co exist" or hate Bush stuff. They love to come off as worldly, well traveled, and special. They drink wine and exotic drinks. They are generally cowards- they find anyone willing to voice an opinion- "offensive." They don't like guns. They tend to believe in gay marriage. They want legal abortions and they want to make failing to recycle trash- a crime. They almost uniformly believe religion is complete and utter bullshit.

In fact, I have found religion to be one of the key elements in finding Moonbats. Like a Nazi hunter. If you really want to smoke a Moonbat out quickly, ask them if they attend church regularly. They get nervous, evasive, sometimes confused and defensive. Unfortunately, putting them on the spot like this gives away your conservative lean. Moonbats avoid religion like the plague. Imagine being a Moonbat and thinking you are the greatest being in the universe. That is what Moonbats have to look forward to. Makes me giggle.

One other thing. Moonbats love to judge others and call them racists. They will always say they are not racist. Never forget this. This is a key personality trait. Part of their holier than thou Moonbat repertoire.  

For me, Moonbats speak a universal language. I can spot them a mile away. I use the skills that I honed in Moonbat Valley- not to fight with them but just to identify and avoid them. I find speaking with them kind of dull. You can do it if you have to. Just nod your head a lot and try not to say something unique, imaginative, or criticize government. Moonbats are very sensitive to this. They will immediately realize you are not like them.

When you find yourself surrounded by Moonbats you are better off just keeping quiet. Try not to engage them. Remember that Moonbats represent the majority voice in every bankrupt state in the United States. We don't need any more proof than that to see how their philosophy has been working. Eventually, they will run out of states, all 57 of them and the Moonbat experiment will officially be over. Until then, be wary. Don't give them any intelligence. Just let them talk about themselves which they love to do. If you have to talk to them, keep it simple- family, friends, weather. Anything else may trigger their sensitivities. Keep it simple, happy. That is precisely why I don't use turn signals. I don't want the enemy knowing what my next move is.

Exploiting Students

One of the things that really frosts my ass- is the raping that educational institutions and banks apply to students. Often they couple that with the illusion of plentiful and great paying jobs- which is untruthful and illusory when viewed on a macro scale.

Use any ploy to rip people off. The over-reliance this country has on bullshit credentialing also frosts my ass. It's amazing that government lets you pump gas without a fucking diploma or license. From ZeroHedge. Too good to pass up.

More On Our Mystery Man

Presented via email without comment.

This came to me from an Independent American.
I found this hard to believe - you really need to take a moment and read this:
OK, this is beyond the 'birthers' questions.
This is just plain old common sense, no political agenda for either side.
Most citizens of a country and especially American citizens know a lot of
people-people they've grown up with, went to school with, worked with, partied
with. Heck, we even knew about famous people's habits and ways-that Andrew
Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery, that Lincoln never went to school or Kennedy wore a back brace or Truman played the piano
Good grief, we are Americans!
We are known for our inquisitory (nosy) nature.
None of us know one single personal fact about the history of Barack Obama.
Honestly, it bothered me for a long time that no one who ever dated Obama ever
showed up during the presidential campaign.
We saw his charisma cause women to be drawn to him so obviously during that
campaign, hard to believe one would have missed the opportunity to tell us about
dating him.
We all know about JFK's magnetism. McCain was no monk. Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess were probed. Biden's aneurisms are no secret. Look at Cheney and Clinton - we all know about their heart problems and certainly speaking of The opposite sex- how could we not remember Wild Bill before or during the White House?
But no,  not one lady has stepped up and said, "Barack was so shy" or "What a
great dancer!!"
No one he ever went to any school with anywhere remembers him. No One!!
No classmates, not even the recorder for the Columbia class notes, ever heard
of him.
Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there.Then check groomsmen.
Then get the footage of the school graduation ceremony. Any one of them.
Has anyone talked to the professors? It is odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.
When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos there?
Every president gives to the public all their photos for their library.
What has he released? Nothing.
Doesn't this make you wonder? Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from President Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, were his friend ?? Not one person has ever come forward from his past at any level.
This should really be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him,
you may have elected an unqualified, inexperienced shadow man. Did you see
a picture called The Manchurian Candidate?
Let's face it. As insignificant as we all are, someone who we went to
school with remembers our name or face, someone remembers we were the
clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something
about us.
George Stephanopoulos of ABC News said the same thing during the 2008
campaign. He questioned why no one has acknowledged the President was in
their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on
campus. Stephanopoulos also was a classmate of Obama at Columbia - the class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him.
Since he is such a great orator, why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class
remember him? And why won't he allow Columbia to release his records?
Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia
University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there-
and none remembered him. Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia - EVER!
Nobody recalls him. Root adds that he was also, like Obama, "Class of '83
political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer
than that." Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At
the class reunion- our 20th reunion five years ago- who was asked to be the
speaker of the class? Me. Why not him? Because no one ever heard of Barack!
Five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the- as we say in New York- 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."
Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama
consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or give the names of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.
NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same class in which Barack Obama states he was. Some other interesting questions:
Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002?
Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by Court Order?
It is circulating that according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack
Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases.
WHAT!! ?
The Social Security numberhe uses now originated in Connecticut where he is
never reported to have lived.
No wonder all his records are sealed!
Please continue sending this out to everyone.
Somewhere, someone had to know him in school - before he "reorganized" Chicago & burst upon the scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention and made us all swoon" with his charm, poise & oratory pizzazz.

Hows That "Winning the Future" Idea Coming Along?

I am not sure how one "wins the future." Is it possible to "lose the past?" Who comes up with corny stuff like that anyway? I had a friend in Metairie, La.- pronounced Metry, say he had a promising future behind him. I thought that was some funny shit. Still do. 

Today I was reading a fascinating article on the website "naked capitalism" by William K. Black. Mr Black ponders why honest bankers are not calling for the heads of crooked bankers.

For those of you who don't know, William K Black is a straight shooter and an honest guy. He helped investigate and jail thousands of crooked Savings and Loans bankers back in the 80's- when prosecuting actual criminals was still important in the United States. Mr. Black has some great You Tube videos and I think I've probably seen all of them.

Black is not naive. He knows what the fuck happened. The head of the executive branch was installed in that position by criminal bankers. In return, the bankers were given amnesty. It is that simple. It was not an oversight. Anyone with half a brain can see that Obama was bought and paid for- and by whom.

The problem with "winning the future" is that it's just bad grammar. It's subjective and arbitrary. You can't "win" anything if you have no proven skills or credibility. You cannot obtain skills without paying your dues and gaining experience. You cannot "win" anything until you have some proven courage. If you lack the spine to prosecute thousands of crooked bankers who were creating liars loans, interest only loans, failing to verify income or employment, giving "AAA" ratings to shit loans and selling them to Iceland, or plunging the world into economic collapse- if you don't have the balls to look at that and see that it was all wrong- you have no credibility. You cannot "win" anything until you set the record straight. 

This from a guy who can't even produce a long form birth certificate, a passport, or a few school records. There might be a credibility flaw in there somewhere.

I am going to leave you today with a premise and a laugh. You cannot "win" anything worth winning without hard work, credibility, and a proven track record of success. Or some balls. All in short supply during this Presidential term. Great irony at the link.

Are One Hundred Year Old Judges Really That Bad?

I don't think so. Far younger judges than the one below- have ruled that Obamacare was legal. In fact, I don't think age has a damn thing to do with poor judgment or rulings. Shitty partisan politics and personal bias have a far greater impact than age does. Think the wise latina.
