Big Spenders

When the Progs have a chance to spend your money, there is nothing holding them back, NOTHING. The, in cahoots, Media tells the lies for them of how wonderful all is going and the FED merrily prints more money making the debt larger by the hour.

Happy Days Are Here Again. Not…from Rico

Both EBT and massive deficit spending (trillions of debt) have so far done almost as good a job of propping up a dead economy and ‘covering up’ what one could reasonably be called “Great Depression II” as the lying kept-whores of the MSM have.
– No breadlines to see here, so just move along.

Not being talked about, or even being considered by either the “media” (hah, I made myself laugh) or the Leftist’s favorite “economists” (oh noz, coffee came out of my nose with that one) is America’s GDP.
– The average GDP for the ten years from 1930 to 1939 during the “Great Depression” was 1.33%.
– The average GDP for the ten years from 2007 to 2016 during “Great Depression II” was 1.33%.

And even LESS talked about by the enemedia is the dual mandate of the FED to inflate financial assets while crushing working stiffs.
Of course, the FED is no more ‘federal’ than Federal Express being a privately-owned, for-profit, bank with an exclusive charter to counterfeit money [read: a servant and creature of the financial system, not main street]. (emphasis added)

So, given all this “news”, are you still keeping your money in dollars instead of hard capital, i.e. metal of some sort. Explain to me how something that cannot continue, will continue. At what point does our creditors cease buying our Treasuries and start redeeming the outstanding holdings? In order to sell new bonds, at what rate of interest will have to be offered to induce a sale?

At that point what is the USD worth? Will you be holding them? And where will the bankers, gnomes and trolls be living? And the politicians, do you think they will have stayed here with us?

Trump wants to cut the so called “entitlements” which the politicians for so long have used to buy votes. Either we cut them now or they’ll be totally gone in one huge bankrupt crash. There is always a choice á la Hobson. Not possible, look at Europe or  Venezuela. How about Greece as an example. Try China, they’re hiding it but not for long. They are trying to hide a Sunrise.

This what one gets with a one party system; there is no difference between the Donks and the GOPe.

Ruminations of life’s turns

One needs to observe the thought processes that differentiate the male and female mind. Not doing this produces some awkward and lasting events.
Take the misconstrued word altering this condition.

Celibacy

What is Celibacy?
Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by circumstances

While attending a Marriage Weekend, Frank and his wife Ann listened to the instructor declare, “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.”
He then addressed the men.
“Can you name and describe your wife’s favorite flower?”

Frank leaned over, touched Ann’s arm gently, and whispered,
“Gold Medal-All-Purpose, isn’t it?”

And thus began Frank’s life of celibacy.

“Pick A Punchline” Friday

We’re juggling a lot of household chores in preparation for some major renovations (which you’ll hear about ad nauseam in the future) so decided to ignore what passes for news and just have a little TGIF fun today.

We can’t say exactly why we like giving these Earwigs cartoons an old and rumpled look, other than it’s fun to imagine them having been clipped from a really weird newspaper, perhaps on the same page as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Which is also a story for another day…

On a different note entirely, this is Memorial Day weekend. Here’s hoping that you fly your flag and enjoy getting together with family and friends for lawn games, hot dogs on the grill, a brewski or two, and a nice thick slice of Mom’s apple pie.

And somewhere amidst the fun, be sure to take time to give thanks for those who sacrificed everything to give us the unimaginable freedoms and opportunities we enjoy every single day – even these days of apocalyptic, hair-on-fire hyperbole in the fake news media.

Especially make sure that any children (and at this point, we consider “children” to be anyone under 30) understands what this hallowed day is really about.

Have fun, stay safe, and watch out for those falling pianos!

Day by Day
