California Case A Prime Example Of Gun Control’s Failures

Friday, January 24, 2020

You’ll never restrict something so sufficiently that criminals can’t get it. All you can do is interfere with the lawful man or woman and treat them like a criminal instead.

Sounds serious!  No word on how to prevent its spread.  Stay away from crowds and public places until it’s over?

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Paul Krugman Admits Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Social Security is America’s oldest major social program, and it’s a crucial support for older Americans, a majority of whom depend on it for more than half their income, and a quarter of whom depend on it for almost all their income. The program is structured to look like a pension fund, where what you get out depends on what you paid in, but that’s bit of a Noble Lie. For the most part it’s a pay-as-you-go system, in which Americans of working age support retirees.

Yeah, like anyone who has studied history and economics believe it was not a racist Ponzi scheme.  It transfers wealth from poor minority men to rich white women.  Argh!

GBWxx wanted to privatize it but was accused of giving a payoff to Wall Street.

If I had all the money that I put into FICA, I’d be rich.

Why can’t it transform into a private savings account?

(Imagine an old minority man leaving his children a legacy of a few bucks.)

The answer is that the politicians and bureaucrats would lose a “piggybank” that can be raided for oodles of spending on pet projects.

Adds for Fiji water remind us that the word SPA comes from the Latin “Salus Per Aquam” which means “Health By Water”. There are indeed touted purity and health benefits, none proven scientifically but I must admit that they do seem to taste better and go down a little smoother, although I usually stick with my home grown Eau d’ faucet.

New study by respected Oxford-trained (DPhil) international geological consultant relying on archaeological, astrophysical, geological and palaeoclimatological data covering the last 2,000 years shows it is the Sun, not CO2, that controls global temperature.

Fake Investigations – Designed To Fool You – The Burning Platform

Sunday, January 19, 2020

For the Deep State, hiding and destroying evidence of guilt is standard operating procedure.  They simply report a “glitch” that destroyed the key evidence and that’s the end of it.  Or, they simply redact the portions of the record that would expose the truth.  To my memory, no one ever suffers any consequences for this.

Treasury brings back the 20-year bond to pay for the ballooning deficit

Sunday, January 19, 2020

The Treasury Department is issuing a 20-year bond for the first time in 34 years to help pay for the ballooning $1 trillion dollar budget deficit.

​We talked about the bond bubble.  Here’s a wild card in the equation.  I think it’s a bad sign.  IMHO the only reason to issue a 20 year is the 10, 30,​ and 50 are not selling. Or not selling at rates they find acceptable (i.e., too high).  If I am right, then you’ll see a consumer price increase as well as a drop in the overall value of bonds.  That will translate to higher interest rates on mortgages, cars, and credit cards.  We’ll see.
