Boise St v. Washington Huskies*Updated

Recently, some men's magazine named Boise the number one city in America for men. I'm not sure about that- but our football fans here are rabid. I cannot believe that on a recent trip to Reno I forgot to bet Washington. For those of you who follow football closely as I do- Boise St opened up as 7.5 point favorites and promptly got bet down to 5. That's a huge move and it is exactly what I would have done. Boise St has a good team but this is not the team of years gone by. This team has no offense. They lost at home to San Diego State. Washington on the other hand beat some seriously good and highly ranked opponents. Off the top of my head, that was Oregon St. and Stanford. They threw one serious clunker with Washington St. They did beat San Diego St....which is the team that invaded the blue turf and won. Take Washington plus 5. Worth a small money line bet too. * Washington covered the spread in a two point loss.

The Inside Report on Silver, FG Style

I was in absolute awe this week as I watched silver prices plummet. There might have been a couple of reasons for that. Legitimate reasons. A problem a lot of us are experiencing is becoming quite obvious- that this Frankenstein Government of ours is going to tax the shit out of everyone next year. Anyone with a sharp pencil knows that the rich can't bail us out. Not even close. That ship left the harbor circa 2008. So people are selling gold and silver- taking profits in a lower tax environment. I get that. Taxes are going up and industrial demand is going down because the world's economies must contract. Economies always contract as governments confiscate the wealth of their citizens. And there are two other problems. I will leave out the inflation caused by central banks and counterfeiting. The FED manufactured bull market cycle in stocks is over. Earnings are beginning to deteriorate. People are going to have to start buying Obamacare. Remember, the Supreme Court rule

I Was Briefly Worried About Gun Control Until...

...Obama dished the job off to Joe Biden. That's when I knew this was just political bullshit. Tear in his eye, very nice special effects. About 52% of the voting public falls for that shit. If you believe passionately in something- you will find the time to make it a priority. If you don't believe passionately in something- you will behave like Obama does- talk some smack and dish the project off. Pretend to care. If you have to, you can blame Joe later. In the meantime, if you want to read the very best piece of anti gun control and solution based writing on the web- an expert opinion as opposed to all of those blathering idiots running their mouths... I recommend this. Get a cup of coffee, it takes a few mins. In life, people make time for the things that matter to them. It is always tr

The Day Ain't Over With Yet

I can't tell you the level of disappointment I felt today when I woke up. I have been looking forward to this day and the end of times for many years. Not only did the earth appear to remain intact, but as I looked around- the idiots that surround the FG compound seemed to also be acting normal. I opened my Apple portal hoping that others were being killed by the millions or being hurtled into space. No such luck. It was the same old, same old. I gotta tell ya...these Mayans are pissing me off. People were still writing shit on Huffington Post. CNN blamed Bush for the fiscal cliff dilemma- Ace of Spades contributor Gabriel Malor blamed the "fringe" elements of the GOP for failing to vote (eating gumbo) and ruining Boehner's "Plan B" vote last night in the House- like any of that is going to change  the mess that we are in. Speaking of Plan B... This is my all time fav clip on Plan B. Dave has it posted over at the Golden Truth. I click on it every da

Congress Filled to Capacity With Psychopaths, Now Allowing...

the indefinite detention of Americans without trial under the NDAA act. Forget due process and all of those Constitutional guarantees and the bill of rights. Get your passports NOW. I just had to clip this comment from the blog. My sentiments exactly. new   alien-IQ Vote up! 6 Vote down! 0 No nation gets the government they want. Every nation gets the government they deserve. All we are seeing here is what has been long predicted and proven to be fact: What we allow or government to do abroad, we invite them to do at home. Everyone's morals are defined by what we allow to happen to others. Americans remained silent when the US implemented this policy abroad, now they must take it in the ass at home because they were complicit by virtue of their lack of opposition to government policy. Saying nothing is as political an act as

Adam Lanza, Time's Man of the Year

This is so wrong on so many levels- that I just have to post it. I have always loved Brian's wit and writing, even when it is sinister. Oh well. We all pick sides. Some of the finest smart assery you will ever read. Right here.  

If I Never Hear the Term "Fiscal Cliff" Again...

...ever, it will be too soon. The latest installment of idiocy is taking place today and tomorrow. Then the idiots are going home for the holidays. Let me explain something quite simply. There is no such thing as a "fiscal cliff." For most of us, this is commonly referred to as "paying your bills." The problem for us hoi polloi is that we have "credit limits" meaning that once we have borrowed all the money that we can borrow...we are done borrowing. At that point, "paying the bill" becomes mandatory. At least that has been the custom. The problem with the idiots or non- hoi polloi, is that they have an unlimited credit line which they have over spent so spectacularly- that it can never be repaid. Never. There is no such thing as a "credit limit" and now it is "paying the bill" time for them. The game simply continues until the truth becomes so evident that not even the BIGGEST idiot on the planet- say Krugman- can deny

Adam Lanza Took Fanapt, Left Coast Psychologist Weighs In

An anti psychotic that can sometimes cause violent behavior. That's Fanapt. In a follow up to my piece, the "Warlords Keep Winning"  here then is big pharma's drug and the original story. This link calls Asperger's Syndrome as a cause of violent behavior,  a "red herring." One last clip, from the above link. "There really is no clear association between Asperger's and violent behavior," psychologist Elizabeth Laugeson, an assistant clinical professor at the University of California, Los Angeles,  told the Associated Press . This is what we have for psychologists. There isn't a clear link between alcohol and violent behavior either. I mean, I have seen people drink and just pass out. Or get pissed off and shoot up the bar. People with al

This Is Our Promising Future

From a reader. Worth passing along. Once while fishing, I threatened a young man while he was texting and I promised to throw his Iphone into the lake. Unlike most people, he knew that I would. The phone was put away...chop, chop.

When God Needs a Hit Man, He Calls America*Updated

Patriot or nationalist. Take a stand for what's right or pollyanna up. These are the choices we make when we decide what kind of people we are going to be. I was moved by President Obama tonight. Not only was he able to hijack another tragedy to steal some limelight ala the Osama Bin Laden murder- but in Newtown, Obama declared that, "We can't tolerate this anymore." Now for those of you confused by my Osama Bin Laden reference- let me make this perfectly clear. We murdered Bin Laden. We broke into his house and killed him in cold blood. There was no trial, no due process. Hell we even had to trespass across a border or two. Please don't get me wrong, all of that's fine. Bin Laden probably deserved murdering. In fact if anyone deserved murdering, Bin Laden certainly flowed to the front of that line. Besides, this is war. People get killed in war. We are always k
