2 ½ Years to Live
Cross -Posted at The Minority Report In 2½ years I am going to die. I know, it shocked me too. I had a cancer earlier in my life and with the work of some really fine doctors it went into remission during the 80’s. The cancer is a very rare form of cancer, one of the first cases was in France in 1715 and the Doctor who treated it | Read More »

Obama Cancels Elections
If that future headline is ever printed, it probably won’t have Obama’s name on it at first. More likely, it will be a proxy — a governor. Or better yet, a mayor or county commission — perhaps in Illinois? Near or in Chicago? But it will go down like this: the MSM will show a wide-shot video of huge (but well-behaved) crowds at the Tax | Read More »
Obama kept one promise – To Soros!
Obama is not singing a different tune, and he’s not being rolled by Pelosi and Reed. He’s doing exactly what he came into office to do – crush the American economy and bring this experiment in liberty to a halt. One reason that I can empirically make this claim is Obama’s ties to George Soros. We know that Soros tacitly supported Clinton Crime Syndicate Joint | Read More »
The Perpetual Crisis
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before. This is an opportunity. What used to be long-term problems — be they in the health care area, energy area, education area, fiscal area, tax area, regulatory reform area — things that we had postponed | Read More »
GM, Rewarded by US Stick-Ups, Takes Job Blackmail to Europe
Encouraged by multiple bailouts from the US, GM has taken it’s stick-up bailout show on the road. Germany is the next victim, with the threat of 300,000 lost jobs. The US international automaker wants 3.3 billion Euros. Exit question: Wonder if the US Treasury will be doing anything to ‘protect’ its own ‘investment’?
Certain Equities Still Highly Profitable
Bad news about the markets has reached deplorable levels with the DOW losing almost half its value in less than a year, and the bottom still far from sight. Although nobody yet (or almost nobody) has jumped up and down in front of the camera shrieking like an 8 year old girl, after weeks of watching the same headlines and the same politicians jawing, | Read More »
Another Trillion This Week.
The House just passed over $400 trillion in spending and Obama puts forward over $600 billion in health care funding. So that is another trillion this week. A trillion last week, too. I wonder how many weeks in a row we can spend a trillion dollars and still be able to sell treas securities to finance it. We are already very close to the | Read More »
A Contrived Crisis? – You Decide
Through a series of supposedly random but arguably deliberate chain of events, America is poised to jettison 220 years of a free market system called capitalism, in favor of the tried and failed system of socialism. This writer, and others, are now starting to question how we reached this point.Last summer, as McCain and Obama were in the midst of their campaigns to capture the | Read More »
Fannie Mae to Loosen Credit Requirements: Since It Worked So Well the First Time Let’s Do It Again!
Here we go again… once again this administration is returning to failed liberal policies repackaged as golden solutions in order to save you from a catastrophic Armageddon. President Obama and Congressional Democrats have turned to using FEAR to scare the public into bad legislation, something this administration accuses the previous of doing and said it wouldn’t do, and has relegated itself to lying about the | Read More »
Beg, Borrow or Steal
One of my favorite things to watch over and over on DVD is “Band of Brothers,” the HBO miniseries about Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division, in World War II. My favorite episode of the series, “Crossroads,” shows the period between Operation Market Garden, the airborne assault on Holland, and the siege at Bastogne. Late in the episode, as the 101st dutifully marches into | Read More »
California: a bastion of sanity
Two quick news stories in California crossed my field of view in the past few days which I found, er, interesting, to say the least. First, if you ever happen to visit California and I happen to be in a car crash while you’re present, do not under any circumstances move me out of the car if you think the car might explode. If you | Read More »
Observations from the Cheap Seats
I turned the radio louder and louder. It can’t be true — but it was. In a brilliant stroke of comedic relief, Senator Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the Big 3 might get their desired bail-out, but they would have to present their business plans in early December to Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for their respective committees to consider. Are | Read More »

Obama’s First History Making Crisis
What will Obama’s first international crisis be – one with life or death consequences. I’ve thought much about this, because it will come; there is no argument about that. The question is what and when? Here is my take on the most likely scenario:Israel will hold elections early next year. Last month, a coalition could not be formed by the ruling centrist Kadima party, primarily | Read More »
The dawn of a new crisis
And so it begins. Within hours of the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America, the world reacts. Not in unanimous jubilation. The enemies and potential enemies of America respond with threats. The friends of America respond with fear of wealth loss.
