The Wake Up Call - In The Fine Tradition Of American Aggression… - 12.29.14

December 29, 2014

Excerpts from a book by Sidney Lens entitled, The Forging of the American Empire - From the Revolution to Vietnam: A History of U.S. Imperialism, written in 1971Politicians spoke more freely and honestly in earlier times about the aims and designs of the United States. It is interesting to confirm what a fearfully pugnacious country America really is according to freely expressed traditional attitudes. War seems to be the backbone of the raison d’être of the country. Nothing wha [...]

Spreading Fear Or Providing Information? - 12.22.14

December 22, 2014

I believe there is strength in knowledge. To be forewarned is to be forearmed (as the saying goes… I think!) A few words on how to handle this process. An explanation of the recent, dramatic and ongoing collapse in the price of oil. How this will affect the derivatives market. Stock market comment. Junk bond market comment. A new poll confirms my contention that Americans support war in overwhelming numbers. More on the U.S. dollar and why it will keep rising. Economic growth projections are just flights of fancy. This is not the predictions of a clairvoyant: the current statistics tell the story for you. The gulf between rich and poor has hit a new record. Family Dollar stores are growing astronomically as the low end of the market depends on these outlets for cheap merchandise including food. More information on derivatives and why the stakes of collapse [...]

America Vs The Rest - 12.19.14

December 19, 2014

Comparing the U.S. to Europe – and especially Germany. You will not want to hear this. It indicates a fundamentally flawed work/leisure ethic in the U.S. GDP does not allow for subtractions, only additions. Learn what they are. One issue will finish America as an industrial power. A report on the monthly jobs statistics from two weeks ago. As usual, going under the hood, the figures are not what they seem. The situation of women in the workforce today. Global manufacturing expanded at the slowest pace for fifteen months in November. More on happiness as pertains to the value of new cars to our existence. How the media deal with dramatic events such as the recent collapse in oil prices. The December 2014 Empire Manufacturing Survey gave its first negative reading for two years, a major retreat. A few more ugly facts about the United States to round off the s [...]

Lies, Damned Lies… And the U.S. Government - 12.15.14

December 15, 2014

Deconstructing the absurd 5.8% recently-announced unemployment rate. If you take the trouble to do the math, it is really so easy to discredit these liars. The same goes for the deficit. And ‘profits’. And the ‘housing recovery’. And the ‘fine auto sales market’. Subprime is back everywhere with a vengeance. Stock market comment. The Rydex indicator. The ramifications of the crashing oil price are very grim and far-reaching. Horrendous sales figures just published from the Thanksgiving weekend. Why the idea of central banks issuing free money to households is a bad idea.
