Over 94,500,000 Americans decide Not to Work!

Setting a record for the number of people deciding to ‘not join the work force’ has left Unemployment percentages uncertain.
The latest story of 5% unemployment is being hailed as a Victory by the perpetually surprised Keynesian Economist Class.
Given the record level of individuals who have simply decided not to work, or look for work, genuine mathematicians are left scratching their heads.
The Trumpeted 5% number is based on one the lowest levels of those wanting to work in the history of the United States.  In fact, the number of those who have decided not to work is roughly one Third of the Country!  That’s one out of three people have chosen to take a ‘different path’.
When you combine this with the 5% unemployment experienced just 10-years ago being assailed as a National Tragedy…
Serious thinkers must rightfully be confused.
The only conclusion we can draw from this information is Administration Number Monkeys will keep throwing their Poo at us.

Are you Doing Better than you were 6-years Ago?

Well… are you?

President Obama say’s you are… that is If he can have the opportunity to explain to you why.

In his latest interview the President was asked if he believed the Democrat Party would retain the Senate Democrat Control. He said, equivocally, “Yes”.

Then he was asked if he really believed the American People were doing better than they were and… basically… if he would like to revisit his last response.

Our President said he did believe the American People were doing better since he’s been President and they would say so if he could just explain to them why.

This is interesting on two points… both not surprising.

1. You’re too ignorant to know how you’re doing.

2. You must be told how to feel about how you’re doing and then what to say when asked.

This is Progressive Dogma laid out for all to see.  Both of these points are what allow Liberal Leftists to say such things with a straight face.  They KNOW this to be true.

Allow me to translate Mr. Obama’s words; The American People will believe they are doing better than they were 6-years ago if we tell them they’re doing better than they were doing 6-years ago.  Kroft… you idiot.

Whether the interviewer recognized it or not this is also an indictment on the Media and the responsibility Leftists expect the Media to shoulder in being a Cheerleader for, and Propaganda Arm of, the Democrat Party. In essence President Obama is blaming the Media for not Telling All of Us how Great things are and it is being reflected in the Polls, possibly in the elections.

It is interesting how the Progressive Mind works.

This entire approach of Socialists, to all things, goes back to Animal Spirits.

Realty is how you perceive it. And you act accordingly.

Thus, if your perception if ‘modified’, Reality can be changed.

Think about that… Reality can be Changed, by Them.

What does all this mean?

It means if the Democrats Lose the Senate it’s the Media’s Fault, and then it’s Your Fault… in that order.

The Media Suck…

And,

You People are Terrible.

You need to get your Minds Right!

Everything is Terrific!

Vote for More of It!  Or we’ll keep blaming you.


Number Monkeys Part III

So last week we were presented with a Horrible Jobs number.

Bad, bad, bad…

Roughly 146,000 jobs were ‘created’ when we need a minimum of 250,000 jobs each and every month to support any façade that a Recovery is underway.

That’s the fact.

Here’s the non-fact. Unemployment WENT DOWN! DOWN… to 6.1%

This is mathematically impossible.

Unless you’re a Liberal and in charge of Monkeying with the Numbers then allowing a Slavish Media throw those Numbers at the Masses like the Poo they are.

Here’s how this happens…

The Liberals in charge calculate the unemployment number going down by Removing human beings from the Work Force.  (No, the Humans did not Die or even Disappear.  They just told someone they have decided to quit looking for work.)

So stupid is this line of ‘logic’ it hurts my head.

Follow this ‘logic’ for a moment.

If this is the correct way to arrive at an unemployment number then… suppose every man, woman and working age child (now apparently anyone under the age of 27-YEARS OLD) were to decide to QUIT THEIR JOB TODAY and then TELL EVERYONE THEY COULD THAT THEY HAVE ‘GIVEN UP LOOKING FOR A JOB’, we would be…

AT 100% EMPLOYMENT!

You got it?

If no one did anything… nothing… and simply said out loud that they had given up looking for anything to do…

WE WOULD BE A FULL EMPLOYMENT!

Yes, I”M YELLING!

The is Foolishness on a Profound level.

The real, actually, NO POOP unemployment number according to the Bureau of Labor statistics is… wait for it…

12%!

12%!

TWELVE PERCENT!

I recall not very long ago, in an administration not far away, when the unemployment number breached 5% the world was ENDING! IT WAS THE APOCALYPSE!

Now we have a ‘real’ unemployment number of 12% (Which I also hold SUSPECT) and the Press is nonplussed.  Instead they report the Administration’s Preferred Fiction.

Is there anyone left in the United States that believes there is not a bias benefiting Socialist thought on behalf of the Press? And if so, how can that possibly be? Xanax? Oxycodone? Pot? Lobotomized? How?

So the Number Monkeys Strike Again.

Why would you take any Media, News Outlet or Talking Head seriously who doesn’t take on this Flung Poo directly?  (Please note: In this case Flung Poo is not a racist Harry Reid joke.)
Why would we offer even a modicum of ‘trust’ to anyone who regurgitates such Crap?

This is all about Marx, Animal Spirits and Keynesian Economics. It’s all about the ‘Optics’. It’s all about how you FEEL… Not what the REALITY we face truly is. It’s all about what ‘is’ is.

And… never let the Leftist Progressives Fool You.  Economics is INDEED Politics.

It’s control.

Controlling your production is controlling YOU.

At some point we have to grow tired of getting covered in Poo.


Please Continue Devaluing the Dollar

Please keep taxing the American People in a way they cannot understand…

Please keep making their hard-earned savings worth less and less by adding more money to the money supply…

Please keep using terms like “Quantitative Easing” instead of “Printing Money” just to make sure everyday American’s never catch on…

Please keep doing what the Germans did to their economy before WWII… and Zimbabwe… and many others where greedy Socialists couldn’t keep their hands off the money supply…

Please keep thinking we are too stupid to understand what you are doing, let alone make decisions for ourselves…

Thank you for your devoted work.


Why Cyprus Kinda Matters…

There is a cooking process that is required to create the perfect Creme Anglaise.
While Stalin’s Omelet recipe requires “breaking some eggs…”
Soros’ Creme Anglaise recipe requires “tempering” them.

(George’s recipe is more delicate and sophisticated.  We should expect nothing less from a Socialist graduate of the London School of Economics.  By the way, Soros is a horrible man.  The more you learn about this guy, the creepier and more dangerous he appears.  I recommend looking for yourself.)

He knows, If you heat your eggs too quickly… they scramble.

And, That’s Bad.

You have to bring the mixture “to temperature slowly” to attain the perfect texture.

Cyprus is the first part of that process.  They are the egg yolks brought just to the point of boiling, separate from the whole.  Then slowly mixed back in…

They are a very small, isolated, portion of the EU… the “only people hurt” will be a select few citizens of Cyprus and a reasonably large block of “Rich Russians” who are already being positioned as criminals.  They might be criminals, but why is that important?  These two factors are important because we don’t want to scramble these eggs before we add them into the rest of the Euro Zone.  Nobody likes “Rich Russian Criminals” and there are too few Rich Cyprus Citizens to get angry… besides, they’re “Rich”… we all hate the “Rich” people right?  Make no mistake, this is a gentle business.  Once you scramble the eggs you can’t un-scramble them, so finesse is required.  But the Socialists have proven it can be done.  (Which I’ll explain shortly.)

The rest of the Euro Zone is the mixture that needs to accept the hot egg mixture and be brought to temperature.  In other words, they must be OK with the idea that the International Monetary Fund can seize the property of those who live in the zone.  For that matter, it must be perceived by a majority that it is “OK” to seize the property of those who simply have DEPOSITS in BANKS within the zone.

This is the perfect custard that Soro’s seeks.

Cyprus must be brought right up to the boiling point without going too far.  Then they must be slowing added “back into” the rest of the Euro Zone… which prepares the rest of the Zone for what’s next.

And what’s next is Italy, Spain, Portugal etc.

This is why the Germans are losing it right now.  They have propped up the Zone and see what is headed their direction.  (Just a note: These are the types of things that lead to war.)

But is Cyprus a big deal to those of us in the United States?

Well, the short answer is, aside from the possibility of that war thing, No.  No it’s not a big thing… because it has already happened here and we all seem to be OK with it.

In fact, it has happened in two different ways.

First, the U.S. population appears to be “fine” with the idea that the Government can Nationalize a Privately Owned Auto Manufacturer in the name of “the general welfare” clause, “general” in this case meaning their biggest donors.  I might have to remind some of you that the U.S. Government went “Full Socialist” by wiping out the owners (Bond Holders) of General Motors in favor of keeping the Unions alive.  It was nothing short of Communism on Display.  Period.  And, you’re good with it.  (Don’t argue with me… you’re good with it.  Are you talking about it?  Do you hear anything about it anymore?  Did you go buy a new Camaro?  That’s what I thought… you’re good with it.  So stop complaining and keep giving Socialism a big wet sloppy kiss.)

Second, the U.S. Population appears to be “fine” with the Government “printing” as much money as it sees fit.  In other words, simply creating money out of thin air.  Magically.  And by doing so, devaluing your savings in proportion.  The Euro Zone cannot do this… trust me, if they could they would be… like crazy.

Wait!  What did he just write?  Devaluing MY savings!?

Yes… just like in Cyprus.  Surprise!  Devaluing and Seizing are the same thing… save devaluing is just complicated enough for you not to fully understand what’s happening.

Every dollar The Fed prints devalues a dollar you saved.  When the Federal Government issues another series of Quantitative Easing (QE) adding 30% to the existing money supply it takes your dollar which was worth 100 pennies and makes it worth 70 pennies.  And this doesn’t just effect the “Rich Russian Oligarchs”… it effects every man, woman and child in this country, and anyone else who has deposits here – or owns “a dollar”.  Cyprus in Nothin’!  Our Fed has done it to not just us, but to the Whole World!

So Cyprus doesn’t matter because they have already been doing it to us and we are still sitting around smiling with our thumbs up our Collective Samovars.  And the way the Socialists see it, as long as our Animal Spirits don’t wake up to the fact that our property is being seized right out from underneath us, or if they do and we don’t care, then everything is good.

In the end, Cypress only Kinda matters…

Whether we like it or not, we’re all about to get Creme’d.  The Writing is on the Menu.

Instead of Cognac, try Tequila in your Creme Anglaise… actually that would probably make it Crema Mexicano, but it works really nicely.  That is, when I have any tequila left… which is Kinda Silly.

(I’m also fully aware that Robespierre, Lenin and Stalin have been attributed to the “Break a few eggs…” quote.  While I prefer Tovarisch Stalin… you can choose. I’m good with any one of them.)


Print, Print, Print.

Determined to reproduce the economic successes of Weimar Germany and Zimbabwe the Federal Reserve has decided to fire up the presses once again.
Excitement ran through Wall Street today as the news of this brilliant new shot in the arm of “quantitative easing” was announced.
Well… not excitement… more like a panicked rush to buy ownership interest (stock) in companies most of us think will be around even if the economy melts down completely. You see, owning a percentage of a company cannot be devalued like the dollar. Companies can’t just print more stock thus devaluing your shares.  In fact, each time the Fed turns on the presses they tax you without you knowing/understanding it.  Stay with me here… if you have a dollar that has the buying power of “a dollar” then I decide to print another dollar and give it to you because I think you’re cool then you have two dollars… with the total value of “a dollar”.  You just got taxed 50%!  How do you feel about that?  If you listen to the media, you reportedly feel pretty good.  Ignorance is truly bliss…
The market going up has very little to do with a healthy U.S. but more to do with a serious concern over its illness.
Keynes, like Marx, was really smart… just really wrong.  Neither individuals ideas have worked out well anywhere in the world.  (If you think about it there are a great many individuals who fit this description.)
But don’t let the fact that Keynes ideas are horrible and produce long-term economic chaos discourage you!

It doesn’t discourage the Fed!
If you haven’t already, might I recommend buying some chickens? Your neighbors will love you…

I bought a still.  My neighbors actually do love me.
