Why This Depression Will Be Known As The Greatest Depression

Probably the last thing regular readers of this website need is additional evidence supporting the coming governmental and economic collapse. I apologize for yet another article on this topic, but newer readers need to understand what is coming and do what they can to protect themselves. Government default is inevitable and with it another Depression. The Depression will be more [...]

More on Political Lies

The Obama Administration entered office pledging to be the most “transparent” administration ever. Their subsequent performance makes Richard Nixon’s attempted cover-up appear transparent. Here is Bloomberg New’s take: On his first full day in office, President Barack Obama ordered federal officials to “usher in a new era of open government” and “act promptly” to make information public. As Obama nears [...]

The Non-Politically Correct Economic Report Card on The Recovery

All politicians treat the truth the way Dracula reacted to a Cross. They are threatened by it. They run away from it. The prelude to an election is especially difficult for anyone seeking the truth. Politicians from both sides assault, distort and manipulate it beyond recognition. Media rarely calls out blatant lies. Deceit has become an acceptable and powerful political [...]

Common Sense Video — Friedman on The Power of The Market

This video is the first in Milton Friedman’s “Free To Choose” television series. For those who have never seen this series, I encourage you to watch it. For those who have seen it, a repeat view is certainly worthwhile. Friedman did this series circa 1980. Just think how much our political and economic philosophy has changed in just a mere [...]

Polling Bias

UnskewedPolls.com has virtually called the Presidential race. They believe Mitt Romney will be the winner. According to them, the race is not close. Surprised? You should be if you don’t understand the corruption of the mainstream media and their pollsters. Almost every poll is terribly skewed in terms of over-weighting Democrats versus Republicans. Is it surprising that Obama polls better [...]

It Is Time For Political Atheists To Get Religion

The conventions of the two major political parties occur every four years. The script rarely changes. Each party attempts to present itself and its candidates in the best possible light. No amount of pageantry or boasting is spared. The spectacles require that memory and truth be checked at the door. There is no room for values which might place constraints [...]

Bagger Obama Sans Mysticism

I reviewed one of my posts that appeared more than two years ago on Barack Obama. This post likened him to Bagger Vance, the mysterious and mystical golf caddie of movie fame. The analysis, comparison and characterizations of the then relatively new president have weathered the passage of time well. Subsequent events support many of the initial observations. Many of [...]

Brian Lamb and Milton Friedman Reminisce About Friedman’s Intellectual Journey

A long interview of Milton Friedman conducted by Brian Lamb. Mr. Friedman, at 88 years of age, reminisces about his career in academia and his contributions to the field of economics and public policy. For Friedman fans it is an interesting interview. For economists or public policy wonks, it is highly rewarding.  

Some Recovery! Want Four More Years?

The claim of economic recovery is especially prevalent in this election year. One hears about the “good news” regularly from the incumbent in the White House. Not too surprising, facts do not support the claims and the media is unwilling to call out such claims. The Obama Economy can be revealed in one simple chart. As shown below, few measures [...]

Common Sense Video — War is Already Underway According to Gerald Celente

Gerald Celente is politically incorrect. He doesn’t speak like an Ivy League graduate, although behind the rough exterior is an unusually high level of intelligence and insight. He does not abide by conventional thinking, which means he has not bought into the nonsensical propaganda that most people have. He is easily described as a “loose cannon,” and he certainly fits [...]

Proverbs and Politics

The author of this short observation is unknown: ORIGINAL CHINESE PROVERB:  Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. 2012 WHITE HOUSE REVISION:  Give a man a welfare check, a free cell phone with unlimited free minutes, cash for his clunker, food stamps, section [...]
