GOP Mansions

Here are the homes of the GOP's presidential nominees.

Romney's castles make me sick.

Just for a moment, I'd like you to forget that we live in the land of forever wanting, greed, and Ayn Rand's rationalization and justification that all that selfishness is a virtue. What I'd like you to think about is this. Do you really think any of the rich and elite bastards featured here- care about the working stiffs of this country?

If you want to find someone that represents you, find a hard working middle American and nominate him or her. How could they possibly do any worse?

60 Minutes to Highlight How Lobbyists Legally Bribe Congressmen, Campaign Reform

One of the key components to retrieving our country back from the criminals who now run it- is campaign reform. Tomorrow night, Sunday, 60 Minutes is going to showcase a criminal lobbyist.

The 60 Minutes segment showcases Jack Abramoff. Please look at the 21 government employees including a couple of Congressmen convicted with Abramoff. (in convicted in probe section) This is a small sampling of the vast criminal conspiracy that inhabits Washington D.C.

Not only do I believe in term limits for Congressmen, but I also believe in eliminating lobbyists and corporate campaign contributions. Permanently. Very often when looking at how incredibly corrupt our political system has become, I am overwhelmed at the enormity of the task at hand.

Just think about this. How are you going to convince the criminals who write the laws, to pass laws that essentially ruin their political lives as they know them? How daunting and impossible is that task? It could only be accomplished by a Constitutional Convention of States. I don't believe there is any other way especially in light of recent Supreme Court decisions. In fact, campaign reform should be job one- it should be the first thing our nation does before we try to reclaim it from the criminals who now run it.

Frankenstein Government On The Move*Updated

For the next week or so, I will be traveling throughout Montana and N.D.- killing game near the Canadian border. Connectivity in this area is unheard of.

We'll see how posting goes as I travel in and out of Williston. Lots of interesting stuff happening right now including the highly manipulated and mostly bullshit non-farm payroll number due out in the morning.

I'll be back in full stride sometime next week.

* Things have been going well since arriving in the Williston basin yesterday. Deer season was only open two hours when we nailed a 4 point buck on Friday. We have also managed to shoot a few pheasants. It is supposed to snow tonight and picking up a few fresh tracks in the morning may lead to a couple more deer casualties. It's getting very cold here.

Everyone Deserves a Voice

One of the things that I discovered living in and around the rich and elite most of my life, is my perception that the rich and elite truly believe they are smarter than the rest of us. Now that assessment is not an absolute and like all things life, there are exceptions. But as a general rule this was my observation having associated with and listened to- hundreds of rich people. That included a billionaire or two.

Warren Buffett is a fantastic example of this. Warren gets a lot of media attention and says some profoundly stupid shit. However, because he has billions of dollars, society somehow thinks Warren is far more credible than everyone else in matters well beyond the scope of his expertise- money gathering. In fact, Warren is plagued by some of the very problems that plague many of us. His personal life is far from perfect. In fact, he kind of sounds like an asshole. Yet oddly, we don't hear how he estranges his loved ones:

One of the things that the rich and elite are very good at is hiding their flaws and mistakes. Socially engineering your family to appear perfect is a science with these people. Coming off less than perfect or "run-of-the-mill" is simply unacceptable. The inner fear that somehow they are not special extends to every facet of their lives. They must have the finest homes, the finest cars, the best schooling, the best cosmetic facelifts, dentristry, boob jobs, and tummy tucks that money can buy. Trophy wives and trophy toys. They are forever wanting and never satisfied. It's like a sickness. But what really sets them apart I believe, are the trophy egos that they acquire as they set about their engineered lives. Many of these people truly believe that they are exceptional. Left unchecked that false sense of self- those ginormous egos, will run right over the top of you. They are superior.

The rich and elite are not something to be worshipped. I have never fallen for that idiocy. But in Moonbat Valley, where everyone worships money, worshipping the people that have money might make you rich and... sometimes it does. Ego worship goes on all of the time in Moonbat Valley. The worshippers cannot understand those of us who don't become members of their church.

I really don't care for those that worship the rich and elite. I don't have the slightest bit of contempt for the rich and elite or their worshippers. That's not my point. It's when those giant egos try to drown out everyone else. Tell us how we should behave. Or what we should think. Whether fetuses are humans, whether God exists, or how fantastic they are because they donated 100 million to the Bill and Linda Gates Foundation. Or signed some contract to give away their wealth. In fact, I find the rich and elite kind of predictable and boring. Sometimes...

I want to find Warren Buffett and tell him to shut the fuck up. Really. I am sick of him. There are 316 million other people in the United States. I'd rather listen to any one of them than listen to Warren tell me how his secretary pays more in taxes than he does.

There are millions of people with fantastic stories to tell. Stories of great triumph, of miracles, of tragedy. Not superficial or socially engineered people. Mainstream people that did not hit the birth lottery. Those are the people who interest me. People not afraid to tell of their triumphs and failures. People with very little who are happy and grateful. Not forever wanting. These are the people that I cannot hear because the media is not interested in them or in many cases because they themselves don't think they are interesting. That's too bad. I think they could unlock a mystery or two.

People are entitled to their opinions and beliefs. Not because they are the product of some socially engineered and superficially perfect life- but because they aren't. I love to hear from everyday working stiffs. Everyone deserves a voice and I pray that the day never comes when this society decides that only the people with material wealth are worthy of our attention. Like buying stocks, pirating a computer language, or stealing interest on bank loans makes you some sort of God among men. In fact, it may be that those people- the people who refuse to worship that socially engineered and artificial lifestyle- are the ones that we should really be paying attention to.

Frankenstein Government Stumbles Onto New Award Winning Journalist, Jonathan Alter

The Frankenstein Government award for shittiest writing of the year. It takes a special kind of writer to reel in this prize. With two months to go, this dude looks like a cinch.  

I wasn't sure I would ever be able to replace newspaperman, Pat Murphy. Time and time again, Murphy never let me down. Murphy wrote some of the most inaccurate and ridiculous liberal shit I have ever crossed eyes over. Week after week, year after year, Murphy's warped thought processes and thus his writing became so disjointed that I considered drinking half a bottle of Bushmill's just to reduce myself to a level of reading comprehension that would allow me to understand him. Often, I considered reading the white stuff around the ink. Losing a whipping post like Murphy isn't something you get used to right away. I have been in mourning for weeks now. Nobody said life was going to be easy.

Reading Murphy was like taking a tomato and removing it's ability to reason. Finding a replacement would be a daunting task. So tonight, just as I was finishing my prayers, God delivered Jonathan Alter. I nearly vomited when I read this piece declaring Obama to be "honest."

Had Murphy found a host body in Jonathan Alter? I googled and found another article written by Alter before Murphy passed away. Proof that Alter is a very capable statist and idiot all by himself without any need for body snatchers like Murphy.

Holy shit! This guy is asking for us to prove that Obama is a bad President? That level of unconsciousness is so rare that it can only occur one time in about 9 quadrillion opportunities. In other words, there is a greater likelihood of an albino sasquatch getting off a flying saucer and delivering a pizza to your door just as the Miami Dolphins win the Super Bowl this year.

Jonathan Alter, you are the answer to my prayers. Please keep doing what you do. God bless you, I hope you write as long as Murphy did.

U.S. Has To Borrow An Extra 20 Billion This Quarter, Debt Is At 15 Trillion, Cumulative State Debt Now At 4 Trillion

It just gets worser and worser.

Gosh they keep lying about jobs and inflation...and lo and behold...for some strange reason, the treasury is not taking in as much as they thought. Go figure.

States tacking on 4 trillion worth of debt. California has 15% of that. Federal government now going to add interest to unemployment loans (9 billion) that California took out.

I don't know about you- but I get angry that my Federal tax money is being used to bail out Communist California. Screw California. Why should we be surprised? They hijack our taxes for banks, car manufacturers, and insurers. Why not irresponsible, liberal states?

So without counting entitlements, we owe 19 trillion. That is 19,000 billion. If we seized all of the assets of our biggest corporations, Apple, ExxonMobil, WalMart, Chevron,  that amount would pay less than 1% of this debt. 

Does anyone really think any of this is going to be paid back? Shit. It reminds me back when we were kids and played pool for a 100k a game. Someone still owes me 2 million. I'm still waiting for that dough. So go ahead I.R.S. and send me a bill for the 500k I owe. I will pay you just as soon as Jay Emerson pays me.

Can We Or Anyone Else For That Matter, Spend Our Way Out Of Debt? The Complete Vindication of Ross Perot

Years ago, when Ross Perot was running for President, he said free trade agreements would be the end of America. That "sucking sound" he called it. In fact Perot said, "it would wreck America." The wreck is here.

Ross Perot was right. So now that we've lost 15-25 million jobs to cheap foreign labor, just who is going to fuel the engine of growth? The illusion that we can spend our way out of debt is based on one single axiom. Growth. Growth is the engine that has allowed the U.S. to escape every economic downturn. So with the absence of all of those consumer purchasing, tax paying jobs, just how are we going to work our way out of debt?

View the Perot prophecy here: (remember this was 20 years ago)

Answer. We can't. In the past, we could spend our way out of debt. Easy credit greased and fueled growth. But we have lost all of our jobs- our ability to grow. That's why there is no end in sight.

The best metaphor I can think of is pushing the accelerator to the floor after your car's transmission has blown up. The engine races but the car is slowing down. In fact, that metaphor almost precisely describes our economy. They are doing everything humanly possible, practically giving money away, and guess what? No growth. Businesses can't hire, the unemployed cannot buy homes, goods, or pay taxes. And still the idiots, guys like Krugman or the FED, want us to keep the accelerator on the floor. Absent drastic and legal changes regarding foreign hiring practices, we are toast. What we are experiencing is a giant reset that is going to go on for years and decades. A continual economic slowing down until our car stops.

The answer is simple. Under the circumstances that exist today- it is impossible to spend our way out of debt. Here is a chart that illustrates the most recent quarter century and the trend as millions of American jobs were transferred to foreign countries. I swiped it from Zerohedge. Go ahead and find the long term, sustained growth there. I dare ya.
