Worst president in my lifetime

This was a post I did on Facebook back in July on Bush I’s birthday. I decided it needed some  updating because I really hadn’t thought about all the factors that should go into deciding the title of worst president. Dumbass Dubya has a lock on the #1 slot, but there can be some legitimate […]

Fiscal Insanity

Ran across this post in today’s Daily Reckoning. Those of you who like to think we can go on printing money without consequences should read – not just this article, but basically everything they publish.  I wouldn’t call it “doomsday” stuff, but predicting financial collapse for those who think money can be summoned into existence […]

Buffett’s view on gold

I posted this last April, as I heard lot’s of people taking about a bubble in gold, and how gold “doesn’t provide a dividend” and how gold “doesn’t make a profit”.   After reading Warren Buffett’s annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders today, I felt compelled to update the numbers, as Buffett dissed gold pretty bad. […]

Federal spending by year

I’m getting annoyed by the partisan dipshits who have amnesia when it comes to taxes, federal spending, and the deficit, so I decided to post a simple chart for easy reference. All data was taken from the GPO at this link.  As of today (August 6th, 2011) I’m not able to find a verifiable source […]

Why Gold Keeps Rising

Saw this story in the Daily Reckoning and wanted to pass it on, as it says something important, something I haven’t been able to put into words. We don’t expect the gold price to soar because gold is such a great thing; we expect it to soar because the world’s major currencies are notsuch great […]

Stop the insanity

I was in an argument – umm, I mean a discussion – with some family and friends on facebook today, and I was looking up some facts to show just how fucking stupid Bush, Obama, our congress, and the Federal Reserve super-duo of Greenspan/Bernanke have been over the past 10 years, and I decided WTF? […]

Fox News has a Boner for Boehner

Wow.  How he did it: Three Keys to Boehner’s Budget Victory is a Fox News story that drools over Boehner.  I personally think Boehner is the worst possible leader for the Republicans, because he’s a typical middle-of-the-road “Moderate” who stands for nothing – aka George “Read My Lips” Bush Sr and Bob “Could I possibly […]

Arm the rebels?

WTF has the “no fly zone” in Libya morphed into now?  Obama is turning into moron GW in front of our eyes!!  According to this story from BBC , “US President Barack Obama has said he does not rule out arming the rebels seeking to overthrow Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.” So we went from […]

Cash for Congress – err – Clunkers

Cash for clunkers seems to be all the rage this week.  Hundreds of news stories and blog posts are telling everyone how successful it is, how it RAN OUT OF MONEY IN ONE WEEK when it was supposed to last until November, and how this will boost the economy. Bullshit. Here’s an excerpt from the […]
