Let's see...which is more likely....

Mega death by Mayan calendar or Congress letting us go over the "FISCAL CLIFF?" These morons created the cliff now they have to sell us down the river to save their asses. 

Not to worry though, no real cuts will be made and nobody's taxes will go up because there will be plenty of loop holes for the people who own our government....

Keep cutting the budget......

You think it will ever dawn on them that firing government employees and cutting everybody's checks is not a good thing?

Are we next? I doubt it. At the last minute we will be saved by our fearless leaders as they kiss each others asses and slap each other on the back for being fiscally responsible as they shovel billions to the gang who owns us.

I guess it's only me but you ever wonder where all that government money we get goes? I sure don't to keep much. I know Walmart gets a bunch so I expect that only the largest corporations who give millions to political campaigns end up with most of the money.

Kind of like building secret multi billion dollar weapons to protect us from box cutter sneak attacks, right?

Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis: EU Car Sales Drop 14th Consecutive Month; Car Sales Plunge 20.1% in Italy, 20.3% in Spain, 19.2% in France, 3.5% in Germany, Rise in UK

From Google Translate Car sales plunge another 10% in Europe and UK only grows. In the markets of the European Union, in November, with the same computation of working days in November 2011, highlights the sharp rise of 11.3% for the UK, while other high-volume markets have reduced their records: 3.5% in Germany, 19.2% in France, 20.1% in Italy, and 20.3% in Spain. From January to November, the scenario is similar, with the UK as the only major market expansion (+5.4%) and Germany (-1.7%), Spain (-12.6%), France (-13.8%) and Italy (-19.7%) in contraction.

No Deal: Boehner Fiscal Cliff Proposal is an Insult | NationofChange

“Speaker Boehner doesn’t get it. Demanding cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid as a price for long overdue fairer taxes on the richest Americans isn’t an offer; it is an insult,” Borosage said. “Using the debt ceiling to hold the country hostage to exact otherwise unacceptable cuts in education and other vital domestic programs is disreputable policy and politics. Offering to hold off a year before taking the next hostage does not remove the threat. Clearly the president and Democrats have two words to say to the speaker: No deal.”

57 maggots removed from nursing home resident's ear | Fox News

A 92-year-old with Alzheimer’s was found with 57 maggots crawling in her ear while she was under the care of a nursing home costing around $10,000 a month. The family of Catherine McCann are now suing the home for negligence and emotional distress. Her 88-year-old husband John McCann spent his live savings paying for her to be looked after by the Lutheran Home for the Aged in Arlington Heights, Chicago. "I was horrified, shocked. thought it was terrible," he said. "I’m paying all this money for that kind of care - no way.  After giving them $270,000 of my hard earned money - my life savings I gave to them - and not even so much as a note or a call." Medics treating her believe a fly crawled into the ear and laid eggs, which hatched into nearly 60 maggots

Trying to get a phone hooked up at Straight Talk...

Won't work so they tell me to CALL them. If I could call them I wouldn't have to, right? Why should anyone have to bum a phone to connect to their service and then pay them too? 

But, $45 a month for a smart phone you ain't got no choice, LOL.

Patti's doing better....

Now that she can eat. You can e-mail her at I'm freezing my ass off and am ready to have my head examined for toughing out my last winter here when I could be somewhere the temperature drops never drops below 50 (maybe 60.) 

I can get my SS in June and plan on retiring from Walmart. To do so, I need to get my business going again so I need to pay off as much of my credit cards as I can because the one thing that screwed me 6 years ago was not having the resources to change product, venue and do repairs on  the truck.

Still, I like sunglasses but there is a lot of competition and you really need a sharp looking store with 150 styles or so. Also, you need to be able to travel around with out worrying about the house back home. One thing I have working for me is that I can afford the $180 rent on the mobile and still do business if I don't sell it.

For the first time in about 20 years i have a couple of bucks and $10000 in credit . I also know the business as it's all location, product and service and I've done it for years. Also, I have a brand new trailer to live in and don't have to return to a particular location if I don't want to. Spelled FREEDOM! 

I just wont have my baby with me to sell because I hate customers!!!!!

I did all the planning, money management, most of setting up and tear down and she did the hard part...selling fussy people into parting with a couple of bucks. And she was really good at it!!!!!

But time will tell. I would like to take my brother Jake  and his wife with me but they don't have a RV and with their 3 dogs and mine it ain't going to happen in 35 foot travel trailer even though it would be fun and we would all make money because I have the means to do it right.

We'll see what the spring brings because I would like to do either Spring Break or Bike Week in Daytona and visit my sweet heart and probably tell Walmart ADIOS AMIGOS!!! 

I'm trying to be patient because I have a history of being highly impulsive as I don't really know what fear is except dying on at a J-O-B. And that ain't my thing.......

Patti had her feeding tube installed......

Some bleeding and great pain but she got something to eat. Don't know how long I'll be able to stay up here while worrying about her all alone during the day.

Well, we'll see how it goes this week.

PRAGMATIC CAPITALISM – Corelogic: Home Prices are up 6.3% YoY in October

The housing recovery that started earlier in 2012 continues to gain momentum,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. “The recovery is geographically broad-based with almost all markets experiencing some appreciation. Sand and energy states continue to experience the most robust appreciation and some judicial foreclosure states are even recording increasing prices.” “We are seeing an ongoing strengthening of the residential housing market,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “Reduced inventories and improving buyer demand are contributing to stability and growth in home prices which is essential to the long term health of the housing market and the broader economy.”

My main theses is that the Republicans are becoming irrelevant....

Scaremongering so the fat cats keep their millions, not advocating that the government prosecute the gangsters on Wall Street and in the banking industry, making sure that you and I pay for these guys mistakes, trying to "structurally reform" our insurance programs by cutting the benefits worked 40 years for, sending millions of jobs overseas , scaring the shit out of immigrants, imprisoning American citizens without trial, etc etc. 

And they think we vote because somebody on the radio or TV whines about their taxes being cut?

Are they retarded?

Once in a while he gets it right....

We can print, borrow, tax or just steal all the money we need. Anyways, even the great tight wing economist, Milton Freeman  has said that deficits don't matter except it helps keep the politicians from going nuts and buying every voter.

Nice try, right. Nothing stops the fear mongering. What happens to the "fiscal cliff" bullshit a few months from now? Squat!!!

Fighting Fiscal Phantoms -

For we have our own currency — and almost all of our debt, both private and public, is denominated in dollars. So our government, unlike the Greek government, literally can’t run out of money. After all, it can print the stuff. So there’s almost no risk that America will default on its debt — I’d say no risk at all if it weren’t for the possibility that Republicans would once again try to hold the nation hostage over the debt ceiling. But if the U.S. government prints money to pay its bills, won’t that lead to inflation? No, not if the economy is still depressed. Now, it’s true that investors might start to expect higher inflation some years down the road. They might also push down the value of the dollar. Both of these things, however, would actually help rather than hurt the U.S. economy right now: expected inflation would discourage corporations and families from sitting on cash, while a weaker dollar would make our exports more competitive.

We made it to Tracy's yesterday....

5050 miles... by the way, I fly out for Idaho Thursday morning.

In the meantime, it seems every body in the media wants the Tea Party to "evolve" and leave the serious politics to the experts in Washington because balancing the budget means raising some poor bastards taxes and cutting their hard earned benefits.

We must not forget that are money is only ours until these fuckers want it!

TAUBE: Tea Party must accept partial blame for Romney defeat - Washington Times

The Tea Party’s future could be very bright. Supporters probably will continue to exert some influence at the grass-roots level but won’t be as strong as before. They still can play a role in determining how the GOP should move forward, either by reforming the party, choosing a real conservative or a Beltway candidate for 2016, and leading discussions of fiscal versus social conservatism. The Tea Party even could act as the tugboat pushing the good ship GOP to calmer — and better — political waters. This will happen only if the Tea Party, much like the GOP, is willing to evolve with the times. Michael

More "fiscal cliff" nonsense....

Interest rates are set by the Fed not investors. Why would Bernanke tell us that interest rates are to be held as is until 2015? What's incredible is these guys can get paid to say this baloney!

In the meantime Patti and I are leaving for Florida probably tonight or very early in the morning.

LEE: After fiscal cliff comes fiscal avalanche - Washington Times

If U.S. creditors decide that our debt is no longer the safest form of investment available, demand for Treasurys will drop, interest rates will rise and the cost of servicing our debt will begin to explode. Paying interest on our national debt will quickly crowd out spending on almost all other federal priorities. At that point, any deficit reduction undertaken by Washington — including the sorts of spending cuts or tax increases being discussed today — will be too little, too late. The Congressional Budget Office projects that under the most likely policy scenario, in 30 years, net interest payments on the debt could total $3.8 trillion in today’s dollars. That is more than total government spending for 2011. In reality, we are unlikely to maintain the same level of borrowing and spending for the next three decades without a significant change in interest rates for our debt. Even a modest 1 percentage point increase next year, for example, in effect would wipe out all the deficit reduction included in last year’s Budget Control Act. In other words, we would have to shoulder the burden of fiscal restraint without any actual deficit reduction — all pain and no gain. It could get much worse.

The republican establishment is never wrong, ask them...

Click on the jump and follow the coversation. My point is that the Republicans gave back a few seats in Congress that they won in 2010 because of heavy bashing of the Tea Party Candidates by the Republican and Democrats in the Media.

Everyone knows that I predicted Romneys massacre over a year ago but who's counting, LOL.

Tea party vows to stay for long haul, takes no blame for GOP losses - Washington Times

Conservative columnist Michael Barone said the tea party “brings some talented people into politics — think of Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson for example — but it also brings some wackos and weirdos and witches, and we put too many of them on the ticket.” Mr. Rove weighed in by saying the “offensive comments about rape by GOP Senate candidates in Missouri and Indiana gave the media an excuse to put social issues at the election’s center in a way that badly hurt the entire party, as well as costing Republicans two Senate seats.” Tea partyers said establishment candidates also fared poorly in the elections, pointing to the losses of George Allen in Virginia, Connie Mack in Florida, Tommy G. Thompson in Wisconsin and Scott P. Brown in Massachusetts. “More establishment candidates lost compared to tea party losers,” Ms. Carender said. Whatever the case, Mr. Phillips said the primary job of the tea party in the coming weeks is to make sure that House Republicans do not surrender during negotiations to avert the “fiscal cliff.” “The problems w

What's with the Liberals going all gooey for Lincoln?......

Oh yeah, he freed their voters!

An Inconvenient Truth About Lincoln (That You Won’t Hear from Hollywood) « naked capitalism

Liberals are fond of referring to Lincoln's concern about corporate power, summed up in a letter he is often claimed to have written to Col. William F. Elkins in November 1864: "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country….corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed." Lincoln’s observation is prescient. But here’s the inconvenient truth: Some of the most powerful corporations of his time were wildly enriched by having a friend in one Abraham Lincoln. This friendship goes back to Lincoln’s early days as a scrappy young lawyer. After being admitted to the bar in 1837, he hopped around and finally landed in Springfield, Illinois in the law practice of William H. Herndon in 1844. Like any young lawyer, he had to hustle to handle enough cases to live comfortably. And, like most young lawyers, he went where the money was. And the money was in the burgeoning railroad industry. In 1851, Lincoln tried hi

The Deficit Crisis Mongers Go Off the Deep End | NationofChange

This sort of warning, coming from people who have a near-perfect track record in being wrong on everything they say about the economy, would ordinarily be laughable. Unfortunately, these warnings come from people who have prominent positions in national policy debates. Therefore it is likely that such warnings will be taken seriously. The deficit hawks want to promote a sense of crisis because it is essential to advancing their agenda. If the January 1 deadline passes, the political ground shifts to those who just want to see an end to the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. After January 1, the Bush tax cuts will have expired. This means that when President Obama pushes his campaign pledge to keep in place the Bush tax cuts for 98 percent of households, he will be asking Congress to lower taxes for 98 percent of the people, not to raise them for 2 percent. It would be difficult even for a Republican Congress to refuse this tax cut. The deficit hawks desperately want to avoi

Man these people are stupid....

Better practice "do you want fries with that?" You have a job and if you don't like it find another. Don't let the union scum screw you over because they will use people to get more workers in the union so they can screw thme out of their hard earned money in dues.

Walmart offers the average high school grad or drop out a way to get a middle class income. You start at 8 or 9 bucks an hour, unless you are a cashier or former manager of some kind and you have unlimited career choices. Most assistant managers come from department manager training and any one is eligible for that position. Assistant manager knock down somewhere around forty thousand a year.

A store manager can, with bonus', hit 100 thousand or so. My assistants and their supervisors started out 10 years ago as truck unloaders and cashiers. They all are pretty much satisfied with their career choices because they work at it instead of whining.

Patti left Walmart making over 11 bucks an hour as a people greeter the lowest paying job in Walmart and I with shift differential and Sunday bonus am close to 15.

Oh yeah,  full time positions are scarce and have to be earned and when you do you qualify for full store bonus every three months and full coverage insurance.  

You just have to deserve it! Imagine that instead of sitting around bitching about how tough you have it and how evil Walmart is by being mean to union thugs and their asshole poltician buddies!

Help Change the Economy - Join Walmart Workers Striking on Black Friday | NationofChange

This morning, at 10 AM local time, Dallas Walmart store workers are headed back to the picket line. Theirs is the latest in a string of strikes that hit a California warehouse Wednesday and Seattle stores on Thursday. There’s more where that came from: On a Thursday call with reporters, union-backed Walmart worker groups said to expect a thousand strikes or demonstrations spread over nine days, culminating in an unprecedented array of “Black Friday” disruptions. That news follows a major legal settlement by a Walmart contractor that organizers credited to a 2011 sit-in at Hershey’s Chocolate. Dallas striker Colby Harris emphasized that despite issues with low pay and repeated retaliation, he’s committed to remaining a Walmart worker. “If you leave this job, you’re going to face retaliation in some form somewhere else…” he said last night. “If you change Walmart, and you change corporate America, it can really better a lot of people’s lives.”

Here's my post on the Washington Times newspaper...........

KNIGHT: Casting blame at conservatives for Romney's defeat - Washington Times

Two years ago the Republicans slaughtered the Democrats with the same voters they got this time minus the independents and conservatives who didn't vote for a liberal Republican who was seen as out of touch with me and you.

The very same people who foisted Romney off on us are now pointing fingers to divert your attention from their mistake. They went on TV and proclaimed Romney the chosen one and there was nothing we, the base voters, could do about it.  

Do you really believe that the voters didn't know that Obama had any policies other than tax and spend? Then what were the Republicans going to do about it? What was Romney's plan for the next four years and why was it such a secret? What cuts to our insurance plans, Social Security and Medicare, did he expect us to allow when we are broke and his class, the very people that profited off of this economic collapse, was to be allowed to keep every dime.

There's more but the Republicans made it too easy for the Democrats to play the class and race warfare card let alone the fairness of the greedy v.s the working stiff.

So, let's not listen to the losers who created this disaster and remember that when a Washington outsider runs as a conservative he wins every time as president and when two liberals run in an election the liberal always wins!!!!

Another reason to stay Independent.....

For the party that slaughtered the Dems in 2010 and lost a couple seats in 2012 because they chose a lefty for president resulting in millions of Independents to not vote and then keep this guy Bonior in charge  is a symptom of brain dead theology the Republicans are living. He is Exactly what's wrong in Washington. Every one sucks up to the left as KOOM BA YA time making sure they get and keep a fat cat job and the people who have bought them their offices steal our Social Security INSURANCE.

Read that again... we paid for these INSURANCE programs, SS, Medicare, Umemployment, etc. and they want to give the money to the gang who have ruined the working stiff on WAll Street!!

Yeaah, let's vote for them to fix the mess they created for us.

Boner's one of the architecs of the dismantling of the Reagan coalition by enlarging the Federal government to pay for their sending our middle class jobs to Mexico and China and then compromising behind closed doors with the ding bats in the Democrat party to cut our benefits that we paid for out of our paychecks! And  now these genius' threaten to dismantle the rest of the economy by stealing our money because of a fairy tale called "fiscal cliff" they created last year. (They could easily pass a new law removing the "fiscal cliff" but no one would be able to grandstand on how terrible the opposition is then, or keep up the scare mongering of we have to cut Social Security to save it. QUIT STEALING THE FUCKING MONEY, ASSHOLES!!! )

These INSURANCE programs have nothing to do with budget deficits as we pay for them out of our paycheckswith separate earmarked TAXES, and this is not a leftwing right wing conflict because if there is a problem with them it's these clowns in Washington stealing the money and giving it to their paymasters!

What would you say if you died and the government cut your old ladies insurance payment to pay for the deficit or if you wrecked your car and the Feds confiscated some of your pay off and stuck you with bill to balance their budget?

What the Hell's the difference?

Is this rocket science?

The Republicans only lose when they lie and don't do what they said they would do. QUIT CREATING GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS and playing footsie with the COMMIES overseas and in Washington and these problems will slowly go away.

Worried about deficits? Hire somebody, tax them,and deficts are no longer created. WE need jobs so create or hire a few people and deficits disappear because that's what taxes do and quit whining about raising Limbaugh's or Hannity's taxes for God's sake.

Ask the Reaganites like me who can remember voting for real changes in Washington and we created a booming economy that lasted until Clinton surrendered to the fiscal radicals and tried to balance the budget by shutting off CURRENT expenditures and throwing working stiffs under the bus.

Even Reagan raised taxes and run up the biggest deficits since WWII and we created over 20 million jobs and unemployment was under 6% for over 20 years. (Bush snuck a few hundred billion deficits too, right?)

Speaking of, doesn't anyone remember the recession Bush inherited? Think that came from increasing government spending or from cutting? Do you really think taking money out of your and my pocket plus millions more of us is good for the economy?

All government spending goes into our pockets and is spent into the economy creating and maintaining millions of jobs and shutting off the money puts us out of work so the taxes disappear creating deficits that scare the BeJesus out Washington. So, quit creating new dependancies or raise taxes and the growing economy does away with deficts. (Then we would probably have to create a few so the Dems would be able to buy a few elections, LOL)

Jesus even a Wallmart cashier can figure this out so why are we paying these people? 

Let's not forget for a moment that you and I didn't send all those blue collar jobs overseas screwing up the tax collections and cut taxes on the rich during a boom causing a speculative bubble creating the basis for the real estate crash did we?

Oh yeah,see any cuts for these fuckers?

So why do we get the cuts in our INSURANCE programs that we worked for 40 years or so for? We elected the bastards and now we have to pay!!!

P.S I don't think this guy, BONER, could run a shit house!

P.S P.S Patti and I had a great day in Monument Valley and will post pictures on Face book later, we are now in Las Vegas at my sister-in-law maggies.

Boehner survives 'challenge' to speakership - Washington Times

While House Speaker John A. Boehner's leadership post was never in doubt, that didn't stop one House Republican from trying Wednesday. As House Republicans gathered behind closed doors at the Capitol to pick their leaders for the upcoming new Congress, outspoken Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert symbolically nominated former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for speaker, said a senior House GOP aide who was at the meeting. The nomination didn't receive a second, and Mr. Boehner's nomination eventually was approved by a voice vote. The full House formally will vote for its speaker when the 113th Congress convenes in early January. But with Republicans controlling the chamber, Mr. Boehner's election is assured.

Patti and I are living it up in beautiful Parker Arizona....

They have a Walmart and Dennys what more can you ask for?

Here's an IDEA how about the Republicans practice what they preach and quit sucking up to the liberals, hmm?

Inside the Beltway: Staying conservative - Washington Times

Though the mainstream media and certain elected officials are advising the Republican Party to gut itself and re-emerge as a spiffy, contemporary, compliant, agreeable and infinitely more charming new political entity, the majority of Republican voters essentially reject that idea. They’re at home with the Grand Old Party as it is. “Republicans continue to want the GOP to move in a more conservative direction: 60 percent say Republican leaders should move in a more conservative direction while just 31 percent want to see them move in a more moderate direction. Democrats, however, want their party to move in a more moderate — rather than a more liberal — direction by a 55 percent to 35 percent margin,” reports a Pew Research Center survey of about 2,000 voters conducted shortly after the presidential election.

In regards to my previous post ....

The Republicans and Democrats have created this fiscal mess by giving everyone a check and then threatening to take them away, bombing brown people, (WE ARE BECOMING A NATION OF BROWN PEOPLE!!!), paying people to go to school, not to work, paying corporations not to farm, making it nearly impossible for the average guy to start a business, playing games with the tax code so no one knows what the Hell's going to happen next year, and so on.

And we working stiffs spend most of our time watching gas prices bounce all over the place and wonder if we'll have a job next week. Jesus no wonder we can't stand this government!

Why not steal every penny the rich have and get it over with?....

Yeah, right.

These people have too much time on their hands and nothing between their ears. The fiscal cliff is a political  problem not economic. Promising to balance budgets after giving everybody a check has got the Dems and Republicans in a corner. How do you rob someone you just promised the money to. (GET IT?)

Can't raise taxes, can't cut the defense budget, can't steal my mothers SS check, can't rob my dying wife's Medicare, can't keep robbing school teachers, cops, fireman and every government pension (where do these state governments get matching funds from, hmm!)

Can't steal more from highways and bridges. Can't take welfare, food stamps, unemployment, housing subsidies, can't rob all those foreign governments we own and we have to keep every broke dick's cell phone so what's can we cut? ZIP!! SO:

Gridlock, baby!!!

So, what will they do? Same as last time and the time before that. Plan on slowing the growth 10 years in the future so they can win reelection because the God Damn Republicans won't raise taxes and the God damn Democrats won't cut handouts, right? (Most of these guys are awaren that we can print, borrow, tax or just steal all the money we ever need. Who's going to stop us?)

Now they worry about it.

We allowed the government to own us and now we pay. Not that budget deficits are an economic problem (Proof? We've always had huge budget deficits, right Reaganites? Anyone ever hear of WWII? It used to be we have a Commie under every bed and they wanted us dead because ......!! Now it's fiscal cliffs) but we are creating and perpetuating the right-left civil war because that the path to a cushy job in Washington.. 

As a concerned citizen I've watched America sell it's soul to liars and con artists and like most can't stomach the gang in Washington any longer. So I predict that it ain't going to get any better for either side of the argument as both sides are paid and rewarded to ignore the other and keep the battle going.

Solutions? Kill each other off, separate into two different countries or take the honey pot away.

Killing each other  off sounds good right after a losing election but doesn't address the problem of keeping our empire strong enough to fight off the assholes who want us dead, so, separating into two different countries is not going to happen because the people who own the empire wont even consider it and so that leaves the owners favorite tool: the income tax.

The income tax with special favors for special groups has to go. Nothing gives us more vitriol, favoritism, bribary, corruption and fear than the police state we have created with it. 

But dream on.

A sales tax means budget deficits disappear because it's so easy to adjust the sales tax rate and "soak the rich" and pay for these guys protection (from us, since they own the various governments, they have to worry about being murdered or having their shit stolen by us.)

Then, why vote for these clowns to fight over or protect our paychecks?

Anyways, prepare for "fiscal cliff" terrorism nonsense out of Washington as they play us like a fiddle again because we are all going to move to China if we don't balance the budget by stealing someone's check or assets because the greedy old people wont give up their ill gotten Social Security and dying people will not surrender one penny of their Medicare.

And let's not forget, the greedy rich won't let us steal their shit so we can have free cell phones, Damn it! (You think I'm kidding? Well which part?) 

Now read Santelli and remember his rant on CNBC founded the Tea party. Scared these poor bastards silly over imaginary government deficits. (Hey, I know of people who believe killing non believers in  Allah will get you into heaven so, yes, people will believe just about anything if important people they respect tell them it's true often enough!)

P.S, the last comment on the election the Republican establishment lost. Quit running left wing liars. Give us a Reagan, Bush, Hell even Nixon! (I consider myself the average voter. We don't trust, let alone like,  any of you fuckers!!!)

f | ZeroHedge

With the varied interests of constituents very much in mind, finding a compromise over taxation will be worse than Sisyphean in nature we suspect. CNBC's Rick Santelli offers a strawman, that gets around Norquist's 'pledge' and perhaps provides cover for both parties. The Chicagoan recognizes that what seems like a high-salary to some is very much not to others and suggests instead of focusing on the income, we should focus on the wealth. This is not the first time such a proposition was suggested (as we noted 14 months ago that 'muddle-through' was over and "we are confident, that one way or another, sooner or later, it will be implemented. Namely a one-time wealth tax: in other words, instead of stealth inflation, the government will be forced to proceed with over transfer of wealth") Strawman or not, the fact that Santelli is discussing it (and demurs on whether he has been contacted) means it is on the table...

Bad for Republicans.......

They don't have any muscle now. They blew the elections by nominating a left wing Republican trying to compete with Obama for handouts. They should have beat him badly. Another thing being more like Dems will cost even more jobs in Congress because excluding defense, raising taxes on the rich and not lowering taxes they are screwed. 

The Republicans jumped on the balance the budget movement and are about to become a whig party as everyone wants something for nothing or we don't want any fat cats in  Washington taking our ss INSURANCE or Medicare INSURANCE away from us because we paid for it and they have been robbing it for decades.

The other place to steal the money from is our military benefits that members of  my family gave 20 years to earn. And let's not forget all the teachers, firemen, cops etc. who put their asses on the line for a pension and the people who own our government are trying to eviserate these programs.

Makes you wonder what the working stiff ever did to deserve these people in charge. And no, Oba mama is also part of the gang and gets no slack from me. 

Trust nothing these people say as they reach for your money!

P.S the fiscal cliff is a political problem do to scare mongering and propaganda as all we have to do is pass a sales tax and get rid of the income tax and most of these problems disappear.

Just don't hold your breath!!!

Fiscal cliff forecast: Bad now, worse later - Washington Times

“Even if all of the fiscal tightening was eliminated, the economy would remain below its potential and the unemployment rate would remain higher than usual for some time,” the CBO said. However, the nonpartisan agency went on to say that canceling the looming tax increases and spending cuts due in January would deepen deficits and leave the country less able to handle a major crisis in the future. “If the fiscal tightening was removed, and the policies that are currently in effect were kept in place indefinitely, a continued surge in federal debt during the rest of this decade and beyond would raise the risk of a fiscal crisis … and would eventually reduce the nation’s output and income below what would occur,” the agency analysts said. Enlarge Photo The reports were released as both sides gingerly begin to talk about a way forward on budget matters after this week’s elections.

Bill Black: Wall Street Urges Obama to Commit the Great Betrayal « naked capitalism

Wall Street salivates at the prospect of any privatization of social security. This would lead to them being able to charge tens of billions of dollars in fees annually and the banks that administered the privatized program would be systemically dangerous institutions (SDIs) because the consequences of allowing bank failures to cause tens of millions of Americans to lose their retirement savings would require either that all such deposits be federally insured or that the failing banks be bailed out by the federal government. Privatization, therefore, is a convenient fiction. The banks’ profits will be private; any catastrophic losses will be borne by the public. The SDIs’ already massive political power, often exerted through front groups like Third Way,” will burgeon. This article is the first of a two piece series. It shows how Third Way lobbies for Wall Street and is used to discredit Democratic polices. The other piece discusses some of the key flaws in Third Way’s studies. The Wall Street response (via Third Way) to our warning of the Great Betrayal repeats its central assertion that there is no alternative – the safety net must be cut. The Wall Street Wing of the Democratic Party alleges that if Obama wields the knife he will do less damage to the safety net than would Romney. That, of course, does not respond to our point. Once Obama endorses Wall Street’s false claim that the safety net is unsustainable and a grave danger to our economy he legitimizes future Republican assaults on the safety net. Third Way admits that these assaults would wield a chainsaw. Indeed, if Wall Street (via Third Way) is correct that the safety net is destroying our nation’s ability to make productive investments then Republicans should take a chainsaw to the safety net. Third Way, therefore, has implicitly admitted and even supported our analysis.

The rot will not end by any foreseeable election.....

Why even follow the results Tuesday? Oba mama has Wall Street money because he hired and covered their crooked asses.

Bet on Wall Street!

Oba mama should win the electoral college vote no matter what. The only surprise I have is that Romney, a Mormon is doing so well in the south. I'll blame it on Ryan, a deficit hawk, who would shut down the economy just to score political points. (NO budget cuts are ever mentioned because no cuts are coming. Even the idiots in Congress are afraid of the geezers. Remember Catastrophic health care? Google it.)

Or is it because he's a fanatic and believes the nonsense spewed out about budget deficits bankrupting us? (we should live so long!!) 

f | Decline of the Empire

This is just not an America that any of us should want to live in. It is a country whose economic basis is oligarchy, whose political system is authoritarianism, and whose political culture is murderous toward the rest of the world and suicidal in our aggressive lack of attention to climate change. Many will claim that Obama was stymied by a Republican Congress. But the primary policy framework Obama put in place — the bailouts — took place during the transition and the immediate months after the election, when Obama had enormous leverage over the Bush administration and then a dominant Democratic Party in Congress. In fact, during the transition itself, Bush’s Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson offered a deal to Barney Frank, to force banks to write down mortgages and stem foreclosures if Barney would speed up the release of TARP money. Paulson demanded, as a condition of the deal, that Obama sign off on it. Barney said fine, but to his surprise, the incoming president vetoed the deal. Yup, you heard that right...........

What part of "we are broke" don't you understand...

Consumers went bust 4 or 5 years ago and haven't fully recovered. Housing is improving and credit card debt has fallen back to much better levels in our households.

Of course, I posted on this several years ago and I'm still right.


But slowly over the next 6 months to a year, BOOM. The next president will of course get credit for it but it has nothing to do with the politicians other than they propped up the gangsters On Wall Street and the banks that got us into this mess.

Guess what? The next boom will be bigger than last and the next bust will be really ugly. How do I know? Ask yourself, why would anyone change their ways if the last time they committed these crimes you paid the bill and they kept the billions?

Let's not forget who owns our politicians. It ain't me, baby!

f | Decline of the Empire

Credit Donkey carried out a survey of Americans in September, finding that nearly half have no emergency savings. Close to half have no cash savings and are living on the edge of financial disaster, according to a recent survey. While 59% of respondents reported having more than $500 in savings, the other 41% do not have a cash safety net. Well, no surprise there, although there is a definitely possibility that many of these Americans do indeed have over $500 available in case of an emergency—they have 573 dollars and 49 cents. Of course, if you lose your job, or your car breaks down in a serious way, or you have a medical emergency, and you don't have insurance or you've got a high deductible, you are still screwed. $573.49 doesn't go quite as far as it used to But Credit Donkey emphasizes that it's not what you may think. It’s not what you may think: this 41% is made up not only of people living at or below the poverty line. They are also dual-income earners with nice homes, nice cars, nice toys, a 401K retirement savings plan, big mortgages. and big credit card bills. But if they ever get into a bind and need some quick cash — say, because of a car breakdown or an unexpected doctor visit — they don’t have it.

Just when you thought it was safe to vote.....

Don't worry, you won't need your Social Security check, VA check, food stamps, unemployment check, disability check etc. because these guys are going to take them away from you.

Think Oba mama would save you? Jesus, you got to be kidding. Wall Street wants more and more. Even though SS and Medicare are funded by taxes and have surplusesused to hide the true defict amount.

Read that again and figure how cutting these programs running surpluses can lower deficits. No, you can't believe a word these crimi9nals tell you.

You probably heard it hear first, but deficits are always spent on us and are used to finance state expenditures. So, cut them and the states go bankrupt. Just where do these states get the education, highway, medical etc. matching funds?


Prepare to work underground to make a living because unemployment is here for many years and no one is safe and your total tax bill will be rediculous.


Before the Election was Over, Wall Street Won | NationofChange

Before the campaign contributors lavished billions of dollars on their favorite candidate; and long after they toast their winner or drink to forget their loser, Wall Street was already primed to continue its reign over the economy. For, after three debates (well, four), when it comes to banking, finance, and the ongoing subsidization of Wall Street, both presidential candidates and their parties’ attitudes toward the banking sector is similar  – i.e. it must be preserved – as is – at all costs, rhetoric to the contrary, aside. Obama hasn’t brought ‘sweeping reform’ upon the Establishment Banks, nor does Romney need to exude deregulatory babble, because nothing structurally substantive has been done to harness the biggest banks of the financial sector, enabled, as they are, by entities from the SEC to the Fed to the Treasury Department to the White House.

Waste of time is the answer...

The politicians lie and kiss the asses of the people who give them the money. Period. Why vote for rot? Besides, why would anypone want to be a sucker anyways?

Doug Casey's Top Five Reasons Not To Vote | ZeroHedge

Doug: Well, a rational man, which is to say, an ethical man, would almost certainly not vote in this election, or in any other – at least above a local level, where you personally know most of both your neighbors and the candidates. L: Why? Might not an ethical person want to vote the bums out? Doug: He might feel that way, but he'd better get his emotions under control. I've thought about this. So let me give you at least five reasons why no one should vote. The first reason is that voting is an unethical act, in and of itself. That's because the state is pure, institutionalized coercion. If you believe that coercion is an improper way for people to relate to one another, then you shouldn't engage in a process that formalizes and guarantees the use of coercion. L: It's probably worth defining coercion in this context. I know you agree with me that force is ethical in self-defense. A murderer I shoot might feel coerced into accepting a certain amount of hot lead that he did not consent to, but he intended the same, or worse, for me, so the scales are balanced. What you are talking about is forcing innocent, non-consenting others to do things against their wills, like paying taxes that go to pay for military adventures they believe are wrong, etc. Doug: Right. The modern state not only routinely coerces people into doing all sorts of things they don't want to do – often very clearly against their own interests – but it necessarily does so, by its nature. People who want to know more about that should read our conversation on anarchy. This distinction is very important in a society with a government that is no longer limited by a constitution that restrains it from violating individual rights. And when you vote, you participate in, and endorse, this unethical system.

PRAGMATIC CAPITALISM – Krugman: Household Debt is the Problem, not the Banking System

Richard Koo’s work where he formally called this idea the “Balance Sheet Recession” and long before we ever came up with Monetary Realism and the importance of understanding why “inside money” rules the monetary roost: “So, the government has a partially correct solution. Not the BEST solution, but it gets to the core of the credit issues. They will essentially trade the bad paper for good paper and it will alleviate many of the pressures on the banks. As I have written here many times the banks are the lifeblood of the system.  I like to think of the banks as the oil in the engine.  If you run out oil the system begins to break down and eventually the engine stops running.  You can’t have a healthy functioning economy if the banks aren’t lending.  Unfortunately, because this won’t fix any problems at the household level it won’t induce any borrowing.  So, it’s a clever way to resolve the banking crisis, however, it doesn’t fix the root of the problem which is at the household level.  So, again I ask – is this a “bailout”?   You bet your ass it is.   Unfortunately, it’s not a bailout of the entire system.  It’s just a bailout of the banking system.  And their problems are merely a symptom of much bigger problems at the household level.”

Bill Black: Robert J. Samuelson tries to create a moral panic about deficits « naked capitalism

Samuelson demands the candidates implore the American people to urgently adopt austerity and attack Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. We have known for over 75 years that the key to recovering from a recession is to follow a counter-cyclical fiscal policy that will reduce unemployment. We have long exhibited the wisdom to adopt automatic stabilizers that increase government services and decrease taxes when a recession strikes. What would have happened if Obama had adopted austerity as Berlin imposed austerity on the European periphery?  It would have prevented any recovery, throwing the U.S. into an even more severe recession.  Berlin’s austerity demands have thrown the Eurozone back into a gratuitous recession, increasing the budget deficit in many nations and plunging Greece and Spain into depressions.  Europe has followed Samuelson’s and Ryan’s policy advice and the results have been disastrous.  Samuelson’s and Ryan’s austerity policies violate economic theory, economic history, and a natural experiment in Europe with austerity that has proved catastrophic.  Samuelson, however, makes bizarre odes to Irish austerity, emphasizing the necessity of “persuading ordinary citizens to tolerate austerity (higher unemployment, lower social benefits, [and] heavier taxes) without resorting to paralyzing street protests or

Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis: Romney Wins Debate #1 Hands Down; Style Over Substance; Tweedledum vs. Tweedledee

I watched the entire debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney tonight. As an independent voter, I have to say this was not even close. Romney won the debate easily. He was confident, poised, respectful of Obama, and was willing to look at the president instead of the floor. In contrast, president Obama kept looking down, kept shaking his head, and posture-wise seemed as if he was ashamed to be on the stage with Romney. Style Over Substance I still have to ask: Did either candidate really say anything we did not already know? The answer is "not really". Obama kowtowed to unions and teachers. Romney kowtowed to the military. Did anyone expect otherwise?

Man dies after live roach-eating contest in Florida | Fox News

MIAMI –  The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday. About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python. Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in front of the store, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office statement released Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy to determine a cause of death. "Unless the roaches were contaminated with some bacteria or other pathogens, I don't think that cockroaches would be unsafe to eat," said Michael Adams, professor of entomology at the University of California at Riverside, who added that he has never heard of someone dying after consuming roaches. "Some people do have allergies to roaches,"

Amid anxiety about defense cuts, states brace for the other $500B hit | Fox News

Deadlocked lawmakers and defense contractors alike have been raising alarm about the more than half-trillion dollars in defense cuts poised to take effect starting in January because of Congress' failure to reach a more balanced deficit-reduction deal.  But there's another side to that budget ax that rarely gets mentioned -- another $500 billion in non-defense cuts that could do serious damage to education, research, safety net and other programs.  All those areas would be cut by nearly 8 percent over the next 10 years. Washington has already signaled drastic consequences for the automatic, across-the-board cuts known as sequestration, including the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office which says the cuts could stunt economic growth, increase unemployment and send the country into another recession. But state officials are also living in a state of uncertainty and anxiety over the non-defense cuts, as they consider where to find the money to cover the planned reduction in federal support. “There is a lot of uncertainty,” said Scott B. Pattison, executive director of the National Association of State Budget Officers. “States are waiting to see. And in some cases they might just have to say ‘Sorry, we no longer have any money'” for that program

Issues that Obama and Romney Avoid | NationofChange

With the quadrennial presidential election extravaganza reaching its peak, it’s useful to ask how the political campaigns are dealing with the most crucial issues we face. The simple answer is: badly, or not at all. If so, some important questions arise: why, and what can we do about it? There are two issues of overwhelming significance, because the fate of the species is at stake: environmental disaster, and nuclear war. The former is regularly on the front pages. On Sept. 19, for example, Justin Gillis reported in The New York Times that the melting of Arctic sea ice had ended for the year, “but not before demolishing the previous record – and setting off new warnings about the rapid pace of change in the region.” The melting is much faster than predicted by sophisticated computer models and the most recent U.N. report on global warming. New data indicate that summer ice might be gone by 2020, with severe consequences. Previous estimates had summer ice disappearing by 2050.

Airline to help upset voters leave the U.S. - Washington Times

An airline says it will help voters distraught over backing the losing candidate in next month's presidential contest flee the country — for free. JetBlue Airways' new "Election Protection" promotion allows voters the chance to win a free round-trip ticket to one of the airline's 21 international destinations if the election doesn't go their way. Contestants first must preregister at After the Nov. 6 results are in, the airline will give away 1,006 roundtrip certificates — that's 2012 seats — to participants whose candidate lost. "We've all heard it said before: if my candidate does not win, I'm leaving the country," said Marty St. George, senior vice president of marketing and commercial strategy for JetBlue. "Fun is one of our five founding values, and in this spirit, we decided to give people a chance to recover from the political noise and follow through on their claim to skip town if their candidate comes up short."

It will be much closer than this poll but Romney is nor setting the woods on fire with his own base, as I  oredicted. He still needs a lot help as the economy is pickinmg up.

But as far as policies go, not much will get done until Congress becomes an issue of  single party control. You can't get anything done without 60 votes in the Senate.

Like gun control or ripping off our Social Security so aty least 2 and probably more like 6 years before anything changes in Wahington.

Obama widens lead, confidence against Romney - Washington Times

DENVER — President Obama has opened a sizable lead over Mitt Romney in polling ahead of the election as both Democrats and Republicans are increasingly convinced that he is going to win re-election, according to The Washington Times/Zogby Poll released Sunday. In the latest poll, Mr. Obama drew 49.7 percent support while the Republican nominee garnered 41.1 percent. The previous Times/Zogby polls showed the race a dead heat — including just before the national party conventions, when they were tied with 45.7 percent of the vote each. Even with third-party candidates added to the mix, the results barely changed.

First Wally World offers me overnight cashier for a hundred bucks more a week then they offer me back up cashier manager for another raise.

Must be my my good looks and pleasing personality, right? LOL.......

Patti's on short term disability and will get her first Social Security check in March. I really don't want her to go to Florida but she can't handle the cold damp weather here and I can't work and take care of her properly by myself. Which puts me in a tough spot. Lonely if I can't sell out and go to Florida in the next few months.

We plan on driving the van to California after stopping at her sister Maggies in Vegas and then head for  Mary's place in Southern Cal for Turkey day. I guess my son-in-law, Miguel wants to fly out and drive Patti to Florida because our van is equipt with Patti's power chair and ramp and she is practically helpless without it I'll fly home, I guess.

At least her back is better after all that suffering last winter. So, I'll stay in the trailer or back in the mobile this winter and get everything taken care of as money is tight and no one is buying much. I still have a few bills to take care of and can't afford to leave Walmart and lose our insurance until Patti get Medicare in February.

Let alone I have a heart condition and still might beat her to the grave. Of course, if that happens she hits the jackpot in insurance to pay for her hospice care she's doomed to need.

Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis: ECRI's Lakshman Achuthan Says US in Recession Now; That Makes Three of Us

Ironically, two consecutive horrendous household surveys following months of weak regional Fed manufacturing surveys was enough for me to say on September 7, 2012 Yes, Virginia, It's a Recession. Quick Notes About the Unemployment Rate US Unemployment Rate -.2 to 8.1% This month the number of people employed fell by 119,000. In the last two months, the number of people employed fell by 314,000! In the last year, the civilian population rose by 3,695,000. Yet the labor force only rose by 971,000. This month the Civilian Labor Force fell by 368,000. Last month, those "not" in the labor force increased by 348,000 to 88,340,000, another record high. This month we set another record high with a whopping 581,000 dropping out of the labor force. If you are not in the labor force, you are not counted as unemployed. In the last year, those "not" in the labor force rose by 2,723,000 Over the course of the last year, the number of people employed rose by 2,347,000. Participation Rate fell .02 to 63.5%; There are 8,031,000 workers who are working part-time but want full-time work, a decrease of 215,00. This one the only bright spot in the report. Long-Term unemployment (27 weeks and over) was 5.033 million a decline of 152,000 (likely an artifact of the decline in the labor force). Were it not for people dropping out of the labor force, the unemployment rate would be well over 11%. Over the past several years people have dropped out of the labor force at an astounding, almost unbelievable rate, holding the unemployment rate artificially low. Some of this was due to major revisions last month on account of the 2010 census finally factored in. However, most of it is simply economic weakness. In response to that weakness the Fed responded with P

Alaskans to get $878 each in yearly oil wealth payout - Washington Times

Buy an iPhone 5 or replace the leaky rain gutters? Splurge or save? Ah, the tough choices that befall Alaskans every year when they get their dividend checks from the state’s oil savings account just for living here. State officials said Tuesday that eligible Alaskans will receive $878 this year. That’s significantly less than last year’s dividend of $1,174, which was the smallest since 2006. The payout will be distributed Oct. 4. Like others surveyed in rural parts of the state, Sina Takafua, from the northernmost town of Barrow, plans to use her first-ever AlaskaPermanent Fund dividend to pay bills. That way, she said, she can free up paychecks from her job at the local fur shop and get her Christmas shopping done early. Some of her customers, on the other hand, are going for some warmth — and style. They’re already pre-ordering parkas made of caribou, wolverine and other furs. “They’re waiting for their PFD to pay for them,” said Ms. Takafua, who moved to Alaska from Maui, Hawaii, with her two sons in 2010. Her husband joined the family later, so he’s not yet eligible for a dividend, as they are. New residents must live in Alaska for one c

Guest Post: If You Want to Help the Poor and the Middle Class, Encourage Deflation | ZeroHedge

What the banks and their neofeudal enforcer the Federal Reserve want is for households to become poorer but more heavily indebted. They don’t want households to be able to afford more goods and services--they want households to have to borrow more money to buy more goods and services because issuing more loans is how banks make huge profits. Politicians love bank profits as much as the banks because they collect tens of millions of dollars in contributions (in more honest terms, bribes) from the banks. Politicians don’t care if 90% of American households get poorer every year thanks to inflation created by the Federal Reserve: the 1/10th of 1% live in a completely separate world than the 99.9%. The banks and their politician partners love inflation because it lines their pockets with tens of billions of dollars in profit. They have worked very hard to convince the 99.9% that inflation is good and deflation is bad, but it’s simply not true. Inflation is a slow, continual theft that robs the hard-working productive members of society and transfers the wealth to the banks and their crony lapdogs, the politicians and lobbyists. Banks and the Federal Reserve hate deflation because people can buy more goods and services without borrowing money to do so. If the Federal Reserve’s nightmare comes true and deflation occurs, something else happens that the banks fear and loathe: marginal borrowers default on all their debts. Rather than being easier to pay, the debts become more difficult to pay as money gains value. Marginal borrowers no longer get the “boost” of inflation, so they increasingly default on their loans. How is it bad for hopelessly over-indebted, overleveraged households to default on all their debt and get a fresh start? Exactly why is that bad? What is the over-indebted household losing other than a lifetime of debt-serfdom, stress and poverty?

The Next Crisis Will Be Ten Times Bigger « Stop the Lying

If we don’t come to understand the underlying reasons for the current crisis and enact real reform of Wall Street and the banks and get big corporate money out of our elections we face a future that is truly frightening. (Yes, corporate money — total revenues of the 500 largest American corporations are 1,000 times larger than all our unions’ resources combined). There is still time to act, but we must realize that our congress on its own is not going to enact meaningful regulation of Wall Street and the banks, their biggest campaign contributor and lobbying force. Pressure for reform must come from our citizens working together outside of our traditional political parties and governmental representatives. There is no question that big banks working closely with and paying off our elected representatives to remove regulations on the books caused the current crisis and much of the current government operating deficit. It is unfair to ask American workers to stay on the job past 70 years of age to solve this financial problem as they didn’t cause it. Similarly, it makes no sense to ask average American taxpayers to step up and bail out bank creditors at 100 cents on the dollar as it was these creditors who agreed to take this repayment risk and received the rewards over time in increased interest payments from financing these corrupt banks. Americans cannot just ignore this problem and hope it goes away. Luckily, there are things we can do like cutting the defense budget (over a trillion dollars annually once you add in the costs of our intelligence services and the Department of Homeland Security) back to its level of just fifteen years ago which will save close to $700 billion a year. But first we must limit the lobbying power of the defense industry.

Pretty obvious what's going on at the Fed...


The banks have millions of bad loans. As I've posted several years ago, until these loans "disappear" from the books the banks are toast. And since they are owned pretty much by the people who own or governemnt they have priority.

What puts the screws to this is that the consumer is still bankrupt and can't borrow. Those of us who can are tapped out and are paying off old loans.  And since our economy revolves around borrowing and few are taking up the slack who needs banks? 

Is this rocket science? 

So what happens? We collectively pay off the debts and resume our middle class lifestyles. We then can borrow. When we borrow we create jobs. Leading to more borrowing. Leading to more job creating.

And that leads to full employment.

Why hasn't it happened? Too many people are bust and can't find a job that will pay the bills and leave enough left over,, called discretionary income, to buy and borrow to create these jobs.

For instance, firing cops, teachers, fireman, or not hiring them in the first place means that my Wamart's sales go down and the store cuts my hours and can't hire new people. What the Hell's wrong with this picture?

But it's the fraud that isn't being addressed. The gang in Washington will continue to bail out the banks because that's where the money is coming from. The same gang for the last 30 years  has got us in this mess and we will stay in this mess until the jails are full of big shots.

In the meantime, our politicians will argue over whether little rich princess' get free birth control, Romney has too many legal tax breaks, Oba mama is a closet Muslim, paying poor people enough to eat this week is bad for morale, the fast food restaurants are fattening our kids because we are to stupid to feed them nutritious food, oil companies are the enemy because they give us all the gas we need, balancing the budget by stealing geezers SS, VA and Medicare so we can keep killing little brown fuckers who can't find Jesus, and so on and so on!

Is QE3 Yet Another Stealth Bank Bailout? « naked capitalism

The Federal Reserve’s experimental effort to spur a recovery by purchasing vast quantities of federal debt has pumped up the stock market, reduced the cost of American exports and allowed companies to borrow money at lower interest rates. But most Americans are not feeling the difference, in part because those benefits have been surprisingly small. The latest estimates from economists, in fact, suggest that the pace of recovery from the global financial crisis has flagged since November, when the Fed started buying $600 billion in Treasury securities to push private dollars into investments that create jobs…. A study published in February found that interest rates decreased, but only for companies with top credit ratings. “Rates that are highly relevant for households and many corporations — mortgage rates and rates on lower-grade corporate bonds — were largely unaffected by the policy,” wrote Arvind Krishnamurthy and Annette Vissing-Jorgensen, both finance professors at Northwestern University

QE3, Deflation and the Money Illusion | ZeroHedge

The first reason for sadness was the idea that people here in New York and elsewhere in the global financial community were actually surprised by the Fed’s move.  The FOMC is fighting deflation.  Credit continues to contract globally as much of the western world goes on a pure cash budget.  So while I would like to see the Fed raise short term rates, the fact is that the central bank has little choice but to support the markets.  But buying RMBS will neither help housing nor reverse the current deflationary spiral on which we all ride.  The second reason to be circumspect is the fact that the Fed’s leaders continue to pretend that driving down yields in the RMBS markets will have any impact on the housing sector or the economy.  The two thirds of the mortgage market that cannot refinance their homes will be unaffected by QE3.  In fact, the latest Fed purchases are a gift to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the TBTF banks and the hedge fund community.  A fund on the floor of our offices in New York actually started dancing around like little children shouting “QE3” after the Bernanke press conference. “The entire move in MBS prices will go into profit margins,” one mortgage market veteran told the Berlin-New York-Los Angeles mortgage study group last week.  “FHFA has made sure that the mortgage market has oligopoly pricing and zero competition for the existing servicers.  QE3 is risk free profits for the unworthy.  And we wasted 40 years and Trillions of dollars fighting the USSR over the need for a free enterprise system?  Mussolini would be proud.”

Paid for a RV parking spot...

Got to watch football, you know. Some kind of religeous thing here in lala land, right? I thought Dallas would be able to stand up to the Seahawks....So much for that.

I really like Pete Carrol and was a big fan of USC when he was there.  Now I remember why.

Patti's hanging in there but she'll be helpless in a few more months. I'm sending here to Florida because she can't handle the cold and Tracy wants to help. Probably around Thanksgiving. Maybe sooner.

I've got everything up for sale but no one has any money let alone a real job. Unless housing begins the boom and soon it will if the nitwits in Congress can quit selling out to Wall Street and give the taxpayers and voters an infusion of cash. If not  we are screwed.

First, though, is getting them to put off cutting the budget until the economy starts to boom. Then you can balance all they want.

Of course,  defense will have plenty as they screw the retirees out of their SS and Medicare.

And the geezers will vote for it so their "grandchildren wont be burdened with the debt". If ever there was a bigger lie that's it!

But propaganda works where ever it's tried. Imagine cutting your own throat so the rich bastards that got us into this mess can eat caviar and send their kids to the Ivy Leagues and our children have to stand in line to get enough food stamps to make it through the day.

But that's what they get for voting for either party and there is nothing we can do but watch. 

And I'll be at Walmart taking their money at 15 bucks an hour 40 hours a week and voting against anyone cutting my Social Security or my brothers VA benefits, Republican or Democrat!

Why can't they just come out and say it?.....

Richard Koo Explains It's Not The Fed, Stupid; It's The Fiscal Cliff! | ZeroHedge

RICHARD KOO, CHIEF ECONOMIST, NOMURA RESEARCH INSTITUTE: Well, it is beginning to look more like Japan. The amount of house price declines, the commercial real estate price declines there, all following the Japanese pattern very precisely and very slow GDP growth, even with all this monetary easing, QE2, possibly QE3. So yes, to me, the United States is going through the same process of what I call balance sheet recession, that Japan went through 15 years earlier. BOLTON: You mentioned the possibility of QE3. What should Ben Bernanke do today in his speech and then what should he do as a follow-up action? KOO: Well, actually, the Japanese experience told us that when private sector is minimizing debt or deleveraging with very low interest rates, there's very little monetary policy can do. In fact, Chairman Bernanke has been saying, since the middle of last year that this is no time to cut budget deficit. The fiscal stimulus should be in place because I think he also understands that under the circumstances, there's so little that monetary policy can do. But there's a lot the fiscal policy can do to keep the U.S. economy from losing its bottom. BOLTON: Richard, how. KOO: And so I think he should continue to push that line. Yes? BOLTON: Continue to push that line and maybe try to subtly encourage Washington to take a little bit more control. Sounds like you think that Congress should do something. KOO: Yes, because when people are deleveraging even with zero interest rates, that means they are very sick. The private sector is very sick and in need of help because their balance sheets are under water. And then that's t

The economy is moving here....

But could be better. THe Canadians will be staying home so we could use a little boom. Need Washington to get off their asses and fix the budget. Expect a lot of talk but no real action on "cuts." If they cut they destroy the military or the geezers and of course, we tar and feather them LOL!

So, they talk, talk, talk, promise, threaten and whine. What else is knew? They know we can't vote for any alternative so they vie amoungst themselves for power, fame  and the cushy jobs that comes with the office. And let's not forget they get their whole families on the payroll.

I believe this guy is on to something about oil....

Even with millions of years to collect the oil in the ground it would still take trillions of creatures. Even harder to prove than we evolved from monkeys without  help.

By the way,I have keep telling everyone to watch the price of oil as the Fed is going to give more money to the gang that got us into this depression and they use it to buy oil, gold and food commodities.

Watch the price of gas and you'll see Obama go down in flames if he can't cut a deal with these bastards. But not to worry. Romney will if he doesn't. Even though Oba mama gave them everything all ready he can't get Congress to do anything to save his ass.

So, right now the election is a toss up. Oba mama does have a large lead in the electoral college but that could disappear by November.

Results? Gridlock and the mess continues unless one party gets control of Congress and spends and cuts taxes big time the boom will be off a few more years. Somebody has to take charge and make it right or we invade some more oil producing country.

Or is that the plan?

Oil Secrets/ Creativity - Shows - Coast to Coast AM

In the first half, author Dr. Jerome Corsi discussed how Nazi chemists developed a series of equations during WWII which demonstrated that oil can be formed synthetically. Known as the Fischer-Tropsch equations, they indicated that the mixture of hydrogen and carbon with various catalysts under intense pressure and heat, produced hydrocarbons-- such as what is made in the mantle of the Earth on an ongoing basis, he explained. It doesn't take dead plants or animals, dinosaurs, plankton, algae or former living matter to produce oil, and the Nazis understood this, he continued, adding that some of their scientists were brought over to the US during Operation Paperclip to continue their research after the war. However, d

What the Hell....Is this the only working cop we have?...

The guy does his job, gets reelected bigtime, then has to fight off the Feds because they don't want him to enforce the law? 

Only in America, right? Next thing you know Oba mama will simply order the border patrol to stand down. He can, youknow, making the Dems the dominate party for at least a generation.

» Witch Hunt Against Arpaio Finally Ends » Fresh Ink -- GOPUSA

The Justice Department had been investigating Arpaio for abuse-of-power claims, but now they say no charges will be filed: Authorities were investigating Arpaio for his part in failed public corruption cases against officials who were odds with him. The sheriff brought cases against a judge and two county officials in 2009. Federal authorities also said Friday that they have decided to not prosecute matters tied to alleged misuse of county credit cards by sheriff's officials, alleged misspending of jail-enhancement funds and other matters. "They did their investigation, they didn't find enough probable cause and they didn't bring an indictment," Arpaio said at a hastily called news conference after returning from the Republican National Convention in Florida. "We don't go around framing anybody. My people are not crooks."

NAFTA Renegotiation Must Wait, Obama Says -

OTTAWA, Feb. 19 -- President Obama warned on Thursday against a "strong impulse" toward protectionism while the world suffers a global economic recession and said his election-year promise to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement on behalf of unions and environmentalists will have to wait.

If your candidate needs a felon to win you in deep do do....

Amazing that Oba mama makes Clinton look presidential. The guy couldn't, and still can't, stop lying.

However, I'm financially doing a little better than 4 years ago and I know that none of the clowns running for office are responsible nor can they change my situation much.

I'm the one who saves and borrows and goes to work everyday and would simply find another job or another weekend business to make ends meet. Been there done that!

Any idiot that thinks some politician is their saviour is beyond hope anyways.

As far as the economy goes, sending middle class jobs abroad and expecting everyone to be hunky dory about it is nuts. You just have to adjust and clean up your act because there is no solution for you other than every man for himself.

I have people telling me they couldn't save 5 bucks a week for their Christmas but can drink and smoke with abandon. Of course, it's their business, but the government didn't by my drinks or smokes so I had to work 45 years to get the little I have.

Is this rocket science?

Maybe we need a good housecleaning in Washington and on Wall Street to settle this question, hmm? Offer everybody some kind of job and feed their kids at school or take them away if they wont work. (Walmart is hiring, Mickey D's is hiring, all the department stores are hiring for Christmas, etc etc.)

But voting for the gang we got now and expecting them to save our economy is really nuts. Remember, every boom has a bust and every bust has led to a boom!

The Real Importance of Bill Clinton’s Wonderfully Long Speech | NationofChange

Therein lies the importance of what Bill Clinton accomplished tonight. But, just as importantly, it wasn’t a wonky talk. He packaged the facts in a way people could hear. This is the highest calling of a public educator.The question is not how many undecided voters saw the speech (I doubt many did) but whether it galvanizes Democrats — giving them the clarity of conviction and argument they need over the next nine weeks to explain why Obama must be re-elected, and why a Romney-Ryan administration would be a disaster for this country.

Makes my point....

Not a nickles difference between the parties. Just a bunch of rich guys divvying up the loot in Washington and making life a bitch for us. What will happen next year? BOOM! Why? Either that or we sink into oblivion as our economy completely tanks because the consumer is bankrupt.

Solution will be making the consumer whole. Big tax cuts and lot of free money. (No one will mention budget deficits)

And yes, Oba mama is in deep shit right now because the gang that owns us are putting their money on magic underwear, LOL.

The Fake Election: 10 Arguments The Republicans Aren’t Making « naked capitalism

Even authoritarian systems require legitimacy to retain the support of the governed, and the new authoritarian America is no exception. Since 2004, the brilliant public journalism advocate Jay Rosen has been asking, what is the point of a political convention? No news is made, yet over 15,000 journalists show up, ostensibly to cover the pomp. But everyone knows that coverage isn’t so much the point; these conventions trade shows for the political class, where party insiders, journalists, politicians, celebrities, corporate types, and lobbyists mingle to organize political hierarchies. The public is simply irrelevant, a mass of jeering and cheering message imbibers or apathetic and cynical former citizens, people who are unseen behind their TV screens. The only fresh elements are protesters, and they are met by a police state, lest they disrupt the insider deal-making. In fact, elections, over the past few years, have become mechanisms for sustaining the legitimacy of this political class, not contests designed to be won by either side. Neither side would ever admit to not trying to win, at least publicly. Privately, political consultants will count their winnings happily after each election, regardless of the outcome. So the way to see the lack of competitiveness now is to examine the moves that both parties are not making. The Republicans have a clear strategy to win, which they are not using. Obama is liked but unpopular, seen as a pseudo-honest lightweight who can’t govern, even as the GOP are considered more competent but downright evil. In politics, you have to get more votes than the other guy; you don’t have to prove you’re an angel. You can even change the voting universe, rather than persuading people of your merits. And indeed, a small but significant minority of Obama voters don’t really want to vote for Obama, they are unenthusiastic but feel they have to pick the lesser evil.  They can be pushed into apathy....

These arguments, if put into widespread play, could keep voters at home, or even shift some groups away from Obama.  And because of outside SuperPACs, none of these arguments have to be made by Romney himself, there are a host of groups that could make them. Though you might think it would be appallingly hypocritical if the Republicans made these arguments, when has that ever stopped them before? It isn’t honesty and integrity preventing the GOP from going there. Or if it is, then one would have to concede that the Republicans are running a principled campaign, on plutocracy. More likely, the answer is that winning the race isn’t as important as ensuring that the political class is protected from democracy.


One definition of Fascism.....

They own us. So sit back and shut up and we will send you a check!

EDITORIAL: You belong to Barack - Washington Times

The Obama campaign has disavowed a Democratic National Convention video that said, “Government is the only thing we all belong to.” It’s odd President Obama would try to distance himself from that idea since in his heart he knows it’s right. Of course, in our guts, we know it’s nuts. The video, entitled “Welcome to Charlotte,” aired Tuesday. It was produced by the convention host committee, not the Obama campaign or Democratic National Committee, though presumably representatives from both organizations vetted and approved it before it ran. The clip sent exactly the wrong message at the wrong time for the Democrats because it echoes “you didn’t build that” and the general belief that government, not individual initiative, is America’s motive force. There are two ways to read the sentence. One is that a citizen’s relationship to government is like belonging to a great big club. Of course, this club will send you to jail for nonpayment of dues. The other, more chilling way to read it is that people are creatures of government. That the government, by right, can exercise almost unlimited control over peoples’ lives. That the proper relationship between the state and the individual is that between master and servant.

Patti's disability approved...

She gets about $720 a month until Social Security gets here in February. That will be a whopping $774. Of course, the gang in Washington can't wait to steal it back so they can balance something they invented called the budget. (Where else they going to get the money?) Oh yeah Social Security and VA benefits, and let's not forget, all those teachers we can fire. And we can do away with cancer, aids, ALS,MS research, right?

How about stealing kids breakfasts at the schools while we are at it? The little bastards could afford to lose a little weight. Oh yeah, why not pull our troops away from the oil fields so even our illustrious leaders kids would have to park the limos?

Or just stop giving government transportation to Pelosy?

Woops, my bad!!!

You ever notice these assholes never admit that we were right, Ross Perot, Pat Buchanan and their supporters, about the great sucking sound of our middle class jobs been "out sourced". Do you think China made that economy boom by Commie fiat?

Did they make you forget with their budget deficit and National Debt Clocks bull shit? Ever wonder what an extra couple of trillion in revenue every year from these lost jobs and a few million non aborted taxpayers could have accomplished?

Fooled you, did they?

Best bonus on sales since 2008. I always pay attention to gas prices and Walmart sales for real info on the economy. We will boom in a another 6 months or so. Barring a real big surge in gas prices. The bump in prices this summer are simply the oil companies ripping us off because the oil gang knows we have the money now as reflected in improving sales.

Besides, Oba mama increased the use of gasahol and someone has to pay for the loss of gas sales, right? It's the little things, like that and making war on the Middle East that causes most of this but we have to work and so we need our gas, no matter the price.

Are gas prices exploding justified in a depression? Ask MacCain. That time the Republicans got blasted and the Dems took complete power in Washington and proceeded to piss everybody off because they're not too bright.

Even a Walmart stocking clerk knows that not putting everyone on Medicare and fixing the system when they had complete control and voter support was STUPID!

I tried. I voted for Pat Buchanan and we were right. Not that it matters because the people who own our government got what they wanted....SERFS!!! 

Mean And Stupid Politics As Usual - Decline of the Empire

Throw in gutting the payroll tax to fund Social Security and cutting funding to Medicare and we will finally win the war on poverty....we simply kill off the poor. Of course, as usual when cutting programs for the poor (cutting government employment makes more poor let's not forget) you devastate most retailers bottom line and throw poor people out of work.
Except for the Chinese and Mexicans who have all those poor people's jobs supplying the rest of us because the morons in Washington and Wall Street believe that the average high school grad in this country will become rocket scientists and wont need those middle class wages. 

The poor will always be with us because it's good politics. You voted for it or your parents did as old Ross Perot and Pat Buchanan prophesied.

Same old nonsense to get elected.....

The US government can never go bankrupt or run out of money. The Feds can borrow, tax, steal, or print all they need. Period!

They have been doing it for our whole history why should they stop now. Because we want Republicans to win? Does anyone seriously believe there will be any substantive change made when they get in power? 

Don't hold your breath. Cutting Social Security, medicare, VA benefits, government employment put millions of us into the streets with hang man nooses and guns. 

So what will happen? Just like it always happens: Here's the excuse "the damn opposition party wont let pass these budget savings us so give us more money and your vote so we can win in November and take our government back!

The voters have done this about 50 times in our history and our politicians still suck!!!

Want my vote? Send me a big big check! I'll pay off a few bills and borrow twice as much and so will you. End of depression! 

Read the following all the way through and you'll see...We've been fed a load of horseshit.

A Disturbing Trend in Republican Convention Speeches | PRAGMATIC CAPITALISM

I’ve been watching a number of the Republican National Convention speeches and while I like a lot of what I’ve heard I have to say that there seems to be one overarching and rather disturbing trend in the rhetoric.   There is an endless discussion about the USA going bankrupt.  Even worse, there have been endless comparisons to Greece and other European nations.  This is an egregious misunderstanding of the way our monetary system works.  I won’t regurgitate all of what I just recently wrote in this piece, but this is really rather simple so I’ll pull a snippet: “The USA has an institutional arrangement in which it is a currency issuer. That is, while the Treasury is an operational currency user (meaning it must always have funds in its account at the Fed before it can spend those funds) it is always able to harness the banks to procure funds. This is achieved through bond auctions in which the dealers are required to bid. The NY Fed explains: Primary dealers ar
