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. The used passenger car market declined 5.6%

Think our Social Security is safe.....

Obama is all for cutting our checks so the gang in charge keeps their goodies. What you get for voting, right?

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.”

Didn't I ever tell you.....

You can't make this shit up!!

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.

Going to snow....

Must be Idaho, LOL. Such a beautiful place with pretty shitty weather this time of year. Rain then snow becomes mud. Oh well I asked for it. At least I'm not competing with illegals for work in California, right?

Boom baby boom....

Housing better and Walmart handing out bonus' what's not to love. watch the job picture pick up next spring as the consumer comes out of hibernation. Im getting a new business started by March and will be ready for my retirement.

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.
