Come Have a Few Laughs- The Sunday Collage

It's almost over- plus one hour. It's been like a war zone this week. Thank gawd, here at FG, I have intelligent readers. I haven't had to kick anyone's ass or listen to one more nazi Obama hater tell me that my vote for Johnson is a vote for Obama. Every once in awhile, if I am feeling especially hateful, I drop by Ace of Spades or Huffpo. I launch some vitriol and get out. Like a sniper.  Have you ever noticed how the pro-choice people are still fighting a fight that was declared over with in 1973? Why do they do that? Because of editorials like this.  It's all scare tactics, propaganda, and bullshit intended to get people to vote for democrats lest those evil Republicans overturn your abortion rights. You'd think those intellectually superior people in NYC wouldn't fall for shit like that but apparently they do. Like somehow Romney and Ryan could overturn Roe v Wade. In fact, g

Precious Metals Miners, Research, Thoughts

In keeping with my mathematically based opinion that neither Obama nor Romney can fix the deficit nor find the money to pay off that 16.3 trillion debt that we owe- I have been doing a lot of research lately. Eventually the fiat money system will cave in. There will be a reversion to the mean- which will have gold and silver as the centerpiece of currencies. That's how it's been for thousands of years. Gold and silver are money. It is interesting to note that just because you are in the right business at precisely the right moment in time- doesn't mean that you will be successful. A huge earnings miss at Barrick Gold proves this out. I have always shied away from mining stocks. I'll tell you why. They are infamous for pumping and dumping stock on investors; inflating and lying about potential finds. Never have I seen an area of investing so filled with shysters. Mining has always been

The Stock Market: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

I originally scheduled this blog for 9/17/2012. I forgot about it. On 09/17/12, I was watching a segment of CNBC where 4 talking heads all agreed that the stock market can only go higher. Then after that, they brought on some guy who said Dow 15,000 would happen and then Dow 17,000 in a couple of years. So what happened between 9/17/2012 and now? Er, down. How about the last 6 months? The talking heads are salesmen with the same theme always. Buy stocks. So we've had trillions of bailouts and stimulus, QE1, QE2, Operation Twist, and now QE3 to eternity- and all of that money printing since 2008 has only bought us a few thousand dow points? What do we do for an encore? I have known for quite some time, that economically, we are dead meat. That's not an opinion- that's a statement of fact. The problem with knowing something like that is waiting for everyone else to figure it out. They haven't figure

Government Needs Sea Turtle Observers, Good Benefits!

That is why I started this blog- Frankenstein Government- and I can think of no better example of statist government gone wild than this. President Obama's administration, heavily criticized for the BP oil spill and closing offshore waters to drilling, has miraculously had a change of heart just prior to the election. Later this month, you'll be able to obtain offshore drilling leases just so long as you comply with government regulations. One of those regulations mandates that oil companies must hire marine wildlife observers to make sure drilling activities are not bothering marine mammals and such. I'm not sure how the monthly reporting might look. You cannot make this shit up.

A Simple Explanation- Why We Can't Eliminate the National Debt

Thanks to reader Mark W, I viewed this clip yesterday on You Tube. I am constantly searching for simple ways of explaining to people why we cannot pay our debt. This vid might be the best I've found so far. People aren't stupid. They just aren't all accountants or people with unlimited time to read the intartubes like me. Take 5 mins. and give this a look. You'll be more informed than most folks.

Did Obama Watch With Indifference as Americans Died?*Updated

The answer is probably. Wow. Update from Republican Mother. Check this link out. For weeks I have been reading and digesting everything I can find on Benghazi. Never have I seen a more reprehensible lack of reporting, honesty, or integrity everywhere. That is why it has taken 7 WEEKS for the truth to begin leaking out. Why? Because the leftist media in this country are compromised. They want Obama to win. There is simply no chance in hell that any investigative reporting of Benghazi will take place prior to the election. If ever. They are very obedient subjects. Please refer to my piece "On Cowards" from yesterday. There are literally thousands of articles on Benghazi available on the web. As new information becomes available (daily) it is becoming crystal clear to me that Obama not only knew what was happening but that he was indifferent to it.

On Cowards

I detest cowards- I always have. I have radar for cowards. Honestly, without getting too political today, I think that is why I have never liked Obama. He set off my coward alarm. He serves himself. Nobody hates free speech like a coward. I started writing publicly 6 years ago. During that time, I have written some very personal things and I have put many of them out here for public consumption. I didn't do that because I am stupid or because I didn't think about the consequences. I do that for reasons that cowards could never understand. Because truth, your truth, has great value. This life is a giant classroom and you aren't going to learn anything until you start speaking the truth, demanding the truth, and start hearing the truth. Cowards cannot do that. They have absolutely no ability to self scrutinize or self disclose- and quite honestly and consequentially- they have not

Obamacronium Discovered!

Stolen from "It Ain't Holy Water" who undoubtedly stole it from somewhere else. The author of this You Tube vid like me, has an idiot for an editor. You ought to at the very least, spell your title correctly.

New Orleans, Gulf Coast, Watches Frankenstorm

I moved to New Orleans about two years after Hurricane Katrina paid her visit there. You learn a lot about human nature when money and lives are at stake. Here then were some of my observations in New Orleans in 2007. The streets and highways were still torn up. Construction had closed a number of lanes. There was a military presence still guarding certain parts of town although I saw a lot more of that in the summer of '07. The French Quarter was on higher ground than other places. It fared pretty well. In fact I noted no vacant buildings or construction there. Other areas of town, mid city and a couple of wards, received the worst of it. Streets were missing man hole covers. Every once in awhile somebody would ride a bike into one of these open holes and lose a few teeth. They were also pretty hard on cars. Buildings and entire neighborhoods were left to rot. Chain link circled vacant lots and abandoned buildings. I passed several everyday on Canal, N of the  bridge. Debr

Eating Yourself, California Style

Heh... and I'm not talking sexual innuendo, either. Years ago, I think in South Carolina, politicians had this brilliant idea. Let's tax the rich! We'll take their money from them and redistribute it to everyone else. Which if you think about it- is all that government does. Never do the statists consider spending less. Thus anytime you have a revenue problem, the statist solution is to take more money from people. Usually from those rich bastards. There's not that many of them and we don't like them anyway.  Mostly, the statists don't even know they are statists. So this year, Jerry Brown's strategy is....drumroll the rich! Try to hide your surprise.   People are leaving California by the thousands already. When you begin to tax the rich like they d

Elite Nudists Pressure Frogs Into Action!*Warning Royal Nudity

Photographing Kate Middleton's boobs is apparently a non starter in France. Now I've avoided posting nude photos on FG for a number of reasons, however, for illustrative purposes only- I have hijacked a photo of Kate Middleton's boobs. I can only pray that the French or Interpol won't storm my house. Royal Boobs Look A Lot Like Regular Boobs, Odd Huh? Here's one of the few reasons I take a Huffington Post feed. Where else can you find worthless shit to read about? My hometown paper only publishes twice a week. I remember a day and time when my thought process went like this. Hmmm..."I don't want anyone photographing my private parts today- therefore I don't think I will expose them in a public place." That's how cloudy my thinking is. Apparently I had it all wrong. If you are famous and have a little clout and money- you

The God of the Machine- The Sunday Collage

Today during breakfast, I had an inspired moment. These moments come when someone else sparks something, my mind immediately wanders, and I stumble onto a philosophical truth. This morning's thought occurred as another person was telling me about a forklift accident. We've only got 10 days left until the national insanity is over. So let's start here... Currently there are nine recognized types of intelligence. Here's a test to confirm what you probably already know or suspect.  For the record, I score highest in intra personal intelligence followed closely by interpersonal intelligence. That means that I can process my own thoughts and emotions pretty well- including the emotions of those folks that I am in contact with. There are seven other types of intelligence and quite honestly, I'm not sure that I possess much if any, of the other types. Two out of nine. A typical score for me. Writers a
