We Are The Europe of Tomorrow, Two Wonderful Internet Gems Included

The greatest conspiracy ever thought of, planned, and delivered was the one we just had. The first ten years of the 21st century. We are going to live with the fallout of this event for the rest of our lives. We all share a common bond here. We know what we can see. We know the government is lying. We know the country is in decline. And we can't do a fucking thing about it. That is powerlessness. Even our own CIA says that our income distribution level is the worst of all developed countries. In other words, when you strip away ten million manufacturing jobs and send them all over the world, all you are left with is a bunch of cheap service jobs. How are you going to have an economic recovery with a sea of debt and consumers with no money? You can't. It is a fallacy. All the government can do is lie and cheer lead. That is all they do. This year my state retirement fund handed out a 1% cost of living increase despite government statistics that say inflation last year ra

Why Do We Keep Electing the Wrong People?

Because we are a nation of misguided fools adhering to inaccurate beliefs. Bush Jr. convinced me of that. Obama, international man of mystery and lost documents, has sealed that belief. The worst part about this? We are going to do it again. George Carlin was right. We don't elect people in this country that represent us, the majority. We elect people who represent a vast minority. Think about that for a minute. Do the majority of us go to Yale, Harvard, or Columbia? Are the majority of us born into ultra rich and elite families? Do we have networks of rich families willing to give us cushy jobs with big titles? Are the majority of us such ego driven maniacs that we are willing to say anything to get elected? Do we have the ability to tap banks for hundreds of millions in contributions? No, of course not. Why then do we keep electing these assholes? We have a collective, illusory belief in this country. It is a lie. It is a lie passed from generation to generation. It is

Darth Vader Gets His Ass Kicked, Tasered, Does Not Go Peacefully Into the Good Night

They always get tough- after they are restrained. That was my experience. The video is about 90 seconds.

Senator Obama

On the national debt. This is what he had to say. Since becoming President-he has added nearly 5 trillion. "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."   -Barack Hussein Obama

This Is How The United States Government Steals Our Money- A Fiscal "How To" Guide For Loansharks and Wise Guys

"Hey bud, have I got a deal for you. Just deposit your money tax free into one of these little 401k plans and you can defer taxes until you are fifty nine and half! Your savings will increase because every one knows that the stock market only goes up. You can't miss. It's like buying a house, pal."  That's what government encouraged us to do. Invest your money and avoid our taxes. What's not to like? Well, as it turns out- plenty. This is how it panned out for me. In the summer of 2009 with no jobs in sight, I pulled out a large sum of 401k money. Federal and state taxes cost me 27%. The Feds tacked on a 10% penalty because don't you know- we agreed to keep it in until death do us part or age 59.5 came. The problem with all of that was- nobody anticipated that our government would grease the wheels of the banking elite so that they in turn could bankrupt the world. Thus ruining all of our investments and leaving us with a national debt we will NEVER

Doctors Going Broke? Unfortunately, There Is Always One Common Denominator-

Yesterday I went to see a movie called "In Time." It's kind of hokey but it's about a futuristic people who are given time and if their personal clocks "expire" they die. I love the concept because the movie is really about money. The parallels are outstanding. The haves survive and the have nots- don't. I see that happening in America. Particularly with health care. People cannot afford it. People will die. I love doctors. I think most of them are great humanitarians. Unfortunately, many of them are tied to the government. That same voracious government that controls everything and steals everyone's wealth. Now doctors are going broke. I am not surprised. When doctors start practicing for cash and directly with people- then the system can start operating again. As long as you have greedy administrative costs, big pharma, government, big insurance, and big lawyers pillaging t

Thanks For Your Service, Suckers!

Years ago, I was playing cards in Pahrump, Nv. Seated to my left was a Vietnam army veteran in a wheelchair. He had lost his legs in the war. We struck up a conversation and eventually he invited me to dinner. At the time I think I had been a cop for about 20 years and I mentioned that to him. At some point prior to our parting company, he said "Thank you for your service." He caught me completely off guard- this man with no legs. In fact, I don't even think I returned the thank you. Some guy with no legs thanking me. Imagine that. I am humbled now as I recall that moment. I cannot tell you how many times I have thanked vets for their service. Many, many times, because of that lapse. So a friend of mine sent me an article recently. It's about how the air force is shit canning pilots before they are able to retire. A trick that has been used by corporate America for decades. To be honest, I

Obama's Arrogance Truly Knows No Limitations

Electing Obama has been such a disaster on so many fronts. Not only was he completely inept and incapable of meaningful "public service" but he is a complete narcissist. That wouldn't be so bad normally except that this asshole is like a narcissist on steroids.  The dude is incapable of any, I mean any, rigorous self honesty. He does not have any. He loves to make recess appointments of nefarious characters for reasons unknown except to him. By making recess appointments of dubious people- the American people have no means to question the integrity of these individuals- and thus the whole Senate confirmation process is avoided. This time I think he is doing it out of anger. Like a little boy throwing a tantrum. The intent of recess appointments originally was to make them when absolutely necessary to keep government running while Congress was in recess. Not to piss off the opposing party. Obama pays little attention to the intent of the law. Mitch McConnell calls

Don't Ever Under Estimate the Will of Government

Many years ago, I had a co-worker explain to my why a mutual friend of ours was so intelligent. His explanation was based on the absolute greed and cunning of our mutual friend. Our friend had amassed a small fortune- but had done so at the expense of others. This in America, is called "business." Exploiting people may seem intelligent to some people. And to be fair, it does take some measure of intelligence to find a niche and exploit it. Where conscience is shallow or perhaps completely ignored, there is money to be made. The willingness to do something does not necessarily have a damn thing to do with what is right or intelligent.  Don't ever confuse intelligence with greed or self centered-ness. These character traits can easily occupy the same space (or not) at the same time and for some- this may be confusing. I don't consider the exploitation of people particularly intelligent. The other tricky thing about intelligence is that it is highly subjective. To a

The Leavenworth Incident

I grew up in Butte, Montana. For those who don't know, Butte is probably the greatest mining town in America. It was chock full of immigrants from everywhere. Primarily Irish. Those men and women could swear. And drink. Smoke and chew. And gamble. And fight. And everything bad. They were my heroes. Not the best role models for a ten year old kid. But, they were mine. So I've spent a lifetime unwinding every bad habit I learned in Butte. I don't drink or gamble much anymore. I don't smoke or chew having quit that a year ago. I think about kicking someone's ass every now and then, especially the Muslim punks at the gym, but for the most part- my fighting days are behind me. I am just a shell of a man. All that is left for me is profanity and I cling to it like a life raft. I can swear with the best of them. Profanity or swearing is the spice rack of speech. Without it, speech is just some bland thing we do to pass time. It dis-interests me. To be hones

The TSA Saves the Day! This Time It Was a Sinister Chinese Gal Returning to College

Are we going to have to read about every chickenshit thing TSA does this year? Is there any limit to the lengths that the media and the government will go to to justify the existence of this money wasting bureaucracy? Apparently not. Please read this. You'll sleep better knowing this arch criminal was stopped.

Frankendamus' Surefire Predictions for 2012

Was 2011 happy for you? Remember people spouting that a year ago today? What exactly is a happy new year?? I'm not sure I've ever had a whole happy year. I had a real shitty year once. 1987. I remember it well. I left a party early tonight. I just wasn't feeling all that festive. That's how it is for me nowadays. In the old days, I hung out in the casino on New Year's and kissed every drunken woman around me. That was kind of fun, but alas those days are over... It's time once again for the 2012 Frankendamus predictions. With incredible insight and accuracy, you can be sure of one thing. The country never lets me down. So here we go... WAR The United States has developed a new war economy. That is what we are good at. The GOP and the right love war. They will tell you it is necessary. We don't care about lost lives or humanity so much any more, we care about money.   So with Iraq winding down, we have to find some place othe
