The Weekend rumble..........

Nice to hear Dr. Ben Carson school the race-baiting hustler Reverend J. Jackson today.

Well done, Dr. Ben Carson!   You will have my vote sir.

The quake out Napa way should drive wine prices higher from grapes that were harvested in years past.    That's how it works with wine and gasoline.  

The military industrial complex must be salivating at the possibility of engagement with ISIS.  Boots on the ground is money in the bank!

Watching Hoover HS and Miami Central HS yesterday was great football.  Congrats to the coaches and players from both teams.

Tom Milnor and company opened another beautiful store in Acworth Georgia this weekend.  Great job to all.  Unfortunately there are far too many part timers working there than full timers.  Thank you President ZERO for that.

Hard to believe that Labor Day is about here.  Seems like last week the Christmas decorations were being taken down. 

Congratulations to the Milton High School Angling Team!  Things are off to a good start.

And finally a hearty High Five to my pal, quarterback Brian Moore of the Alpharetta Bears.  You got it done pal!   Keep it rolling!

And one more thing.  There has been a near generation of "blue-hairs" that have been robbed of a return on their lifetime work by the Federal Reserve keeping interest rates artificially low.   One thing I would pay big money to see would be a caravan of AARP types protesting at the Federal Reserve Banks around the country.  We all would be lucky.   Rise up sheeple, rise up!!!!

Yellen continues the scam 3 years later............

 
This piece was originally posted in June of 2011.    Nothing has changed.
 
The gangster banksters were out in force in Atlanta's Buckhead today. The Ritz Carlton, Buckhead holds a special place for me. Started running my first Peachtree Road Race there in 1989, spent my wedding night there in 1991, lived a mile away for a few years, enjoyed many an adult beverage at the bar, met William O'Neill's first CANSLIM poster boy, David Ryan there for a meeting and truth be told, enjoyed the finest meal in my life in the Ritz Main Dining Room when it was still open, having a piece of chocolate covered venison that had been cooking for three days with my family. Today the Ritz was all about Bernanke the Banker so I headed down with my home made sign and stood in the heat for a couple of hours across the street. I hydrated well and threw on the Maui Jims and headed out on a lethargic day in the stock market. I figured there may be others; like-minded, youngsters, Generations X and Y'ers shouting with signs. Wrong, not a soul with me.
I felt powerful standing there watching the big limos roll up with the men in black. They would like us to believe a default is a bad thing for us. It's actually a bad thing for the banks, not most Americans. Pain would be sharp, but it would end. I thought about our debt ceiling that will be raised same way the TARP passed; with threats of financial, govt and economic collapse, maybe even martial law. It will be the same ole song & dance. This is silly, why call it a "debt ceiling"? Just call it what it is, an increase in the rate of borrowing.
The security detail fanned out watching me across the street. Getting blank stares from drivers far too concerned with making a living than reading anything about Bernanke. I felt sorry for America today.
Today, the Japanese and Australian tourists had questions or maybe they just liked my orange shirt. The Americans seemed to be worrying about their next text message, tattoo and hook-up. I am glad I went but more scared for America from what I saw at that intersection today. Savings and retirement are not institutions. They are matters of personal responsibility. They are an attitude - not some external organization or person to blame. The key word in retirement planning is not retirement. It is planning as in; plan to have your house paid for, plan to have your car paid off, pay off the credit cards and have enough saved to generate a steady income in your later years.
In the coming years, our debt is projected to grow to more than three times the size of our entire economy. This will be ugly down the road.
Today, do they really care? Not sure. I do. That's why I went. I wanted to do it my way, just like my Dad.

Record high stock market these days ..........

The collapse of this Fed fueled bubble will be epic.

Wall Street BANKERS cleaning up............

For most (practically all) Americans, this is officially the worst recovery ever. 

Wage growth has never been slower in a post World War II recovery. However, not everyone is hurting...

*GOLDMAN SACHS SAID TO RAISE JUNIOR STAFF'S SALARIES ABOUT 20%

This comes just weeks after Morgan Stanley announced it would raise junior banker salaries by 25%. It appears President Obama's hopes for 'fair, livable' minimum wage is being heeded by the banking community - good patriots, they are.

Can you hear the middle class shrinking month by month?

Another "Zerocare" tidbit...........

It appears Sen. Orin Hatch's comment that "everything from this ill-conceived tax's structure to its implementation has been a disaster," are coming true. As AP reports, an "Obamacare" tax on medical devices is falling short of its revenue target because thousands of companies aren't paying it, according to a government audit released Tuesday. An audit found the IRS received only 5,107 returns (against expectations of over 9,000) with a 24% shortfall in revenues. The tax is projected to generate $29 billion over the coming decade, so a 24 percent shortfall - if it were sustained - would be significant.

Scammers are EVERYWHERE

Here are the top ten US charity cons that were compiled last year by Center for Investigative Reporting. (The percentages of money raised that actually went to the supposed causes is in brackets.)

1. Kid’s Wish Network (2.5%)
2. Cancer Fund of America (0.9%)
3. Children's Wish Foundation International (10.8%)
4. American Breast Cancer Foundation (5.3%)
5. Firefighters Charitable Foundation (8.4%)
6. Breast Cancer Relief Foundation (2.2%)
7. International Union of Police Associations (0.5%)
8. National Veterans Service Fund (7.8%)
9. American Association of State Troopers (8.6%)
10. Children's Cancer Fund of America (5.3%)

HERTZ

If this doesn't wake people up to the unreality of the stock 'market', nothing will. Hertz has ripped higher 8 days in a row, surging over 18% in that period as analysts and talking heads piled on proclaiming how wonderful it is.. and then:

*HERTZ HAS DECIDED TO WITHDRAW 2014 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

*HERTZ EXPECTS TO BE WELL BELOW LOW END OF 2014 GUIDANCE

Today the S&P futures traded the lowest volume of the year today (for a non-holiday trading day) and volume has slid consistently lower as this rally of the last 8 days. The S&P outperformed today (up over 0.5%) as yesterday's oil-is-falling-so-buy-Trannies meme reversed into oil-is-falling-so-sell-Trannies which ended the day almost unchanged. The Nasdaq made new 14-year highs, up 5 days in a row. Treasury yields dropped notably early on then surged higher as US stocks opened (30Y +8bps on the week).  Commodities in general were clubbed like baby seals with copper, silver, and WTI hammered (but not Brent) after the inflation/housing data leaving oil under $95 - its lowest in 7 months. Gold fell much more modestly (but ended below $1300).

AAPL closes at all-time high.

Lighten up, it's Tuesday

Did you hear on CNN that the Payless Shoes store in Ferguson was looted today?

It's true.

Not a single pair of work boots was stolen.

Liberal hogwash...........

Isn't it madness to import millions of people of lower than median intelligence, no identifiable job skills and no command of the English language?

If lower wage scale workers are needed anywhere there seems to be an overplus of those types in Ferguson, Missouri.

Selling advertising on the racial front

Watching the media strive to sell "eye-balls" all day and all night long is rather funny. 

Maybe it's because I loved my criminal law class in law school.  Maybe because my Dad was a LEO for so many years.  Maybe because I still have a modicum of respect for America and the rule of law but let me say it simply, the media is allowing these thugs to incite and inflame from every direction.

It's a slippery slope from where I sit.

And it looks downhill until it doesn't .   

Race Baiters.........

Few political gifts are more richly rewarded than the ability to convince parasites that they are victims.

Ferguson Missouri tonight.............

We are fortunate to have the Golfer-in-Chief back from the links tonight.  Taxpayers footing his golf addiction are the real losers.  He should be lucky he doesn't have a son like Michael Brown. 

The racial arsonists, Jackson and Sharpton should be gone by now.

Does anyone work in Ferguson?  

The tear gas manufacturers are making out fairly well.

Overtime pay is piling up with the LEO's.

This saga exhibits many if not most of the ills of the black community.

It won't get better in my lifetime.

The incentives are gone.  Finished.  Over. 

The FREE SHIT ARMY is in control.

Stay loaded my friends and I'm not talking alcohol content, I'm talking lead.

This is RON PAUL talking...........

We have been at war with Iraq for 24 years, starting with Operations Desert Shield and Storm in 1990. Shortly after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait that year, the propaganda machine began agitating for a US attack on Iraq. We all remember the appearance before Congress of a young Kuwaiti woman claiming that the Iraqis were ripping Kuwaiti babies from incubators. The woman turned out to be the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US and the story was false, but it was enough to turn US opposition in favor of an attack.

This month, yet another US president – the fifth in a row – began bombing Iraq. He is also placing in US troops on the ground despite promising not to do so.

The second Iraq war in 2003 cost the US some two trillion dollars. According to estimates, more than one million deaths have occurred as a result of that war. Millions of tons of US bombs have fallen in Iraq almost steadily since 1991.

What have we accomplished? Where are we now, 24 years later? We are back where we started, at war in Iraq!

The US overthrew Saddam Hussein in the second Iraq war and put into place a puppet, Nouri al-Maliki. But after eight years, last week the US engineered a coup against Maliki to put in place yet another puppet. The US accused Maliki of misrule and divisiveness, but what really irritated the US government was his 2011 refusal to grant immunity to the thousands of US troops that Obama wanted to keep in the country.

Early this year, a radical Islamist group, ISIS, began taking over territory in Iraq, starting with Fallujah. The organization had been operating in Syria, strengthened by US support for the overthrow of the Syrian government. ISIS obtained a broad array of sophisticated US weapons in Syria, very often capturing them from other US-approved opposition groups. Some claim that lax screening criteria allowed some ISIS fighters to even participate in secret CIA training camps in Jordan and Turkey.

This month, ISIS became the target of a new US bombing campaign in Iraq. The pretext for the latest US attack was the plight of a religious minority in the Kurdish region currently under ISIS attack. The US government and media warned that up to 100,000 from this group were stranded on a mountain and could be slaughtered if the US did not intervene at once. Americans unfortunately once again fell for this propaganda and US bombs began to fall. Last week, however, it was determined that this 100,000 was actually only about 2,000 and many of them had been living on the mountain for years! They didn’t want to be rescued!

This is not to say that the plight of many of these people is not tragic, but why is it that the US government did not say a word when three out of four Christians were forced out of Iraq during the ten year US occupation? Why has the US said nothing about the Christians slaughtered by its allies in Syria? What about all the Palestinians killed in Gaza or the ethnic Russians killed in east Ukraine?

The humanitarian situation was cynically manipulated by the Obama administration --  and echoed by the US media -- to provide a reason for the president to attack Iraq again. This time it was about yet another regime change, breaking Kurdistan away from Iraq and protection of the rich oil reserves there, and acceptance of a new US military presence on the ground in the country.

President Obama has started another war in Iraq and Congress is completely silent. No declaration, no authorization, not even a debate. After 24 years we are back where we started. Isn’t it about time to re-think this failed interventionist policy? Isn’t it time to stop trusting the government and its war propaganda? Isn’t it time to leave Iraq alone?
