Beware Greeks Breaking Bonds

Just recently, I read Michael Lewis’s Boomerang, which includes a long essay on the economic problems of Greece. It’s difficult to describe Greece’s economy without the words “holy fucking shit, dude, are you serious?” but I’ll try.

For years, the Greek budgets were a fraud. The EU rules required them to keep their deficits below 3% of GDP. But massive amounts of the Greek economy are underground. Their system encourage abuse and fraud so … Read more

Frosting on a turd still means you are getting a turd

Seven years of the left being in charge have devastated support for the stupid shit they believe in and do in the US, so with people turning away from them in droves, the left’s now banking on rewarding millions of criminals that jumped our borders with residency or citizenship and numerous other tax payer paid for perks. Of course, this plan is not playing well with any of the traditional democrat support groups whom correctly … Read more

Frack the Russians

It is well known that, during the Cold War, the Soviet Union quietly funneled money to Western peace movements. It funded people who opposed nuclear weapons and wanted unilateral disarmament of the West. It funded people who opposed strategic nuclear weapons in central Europe. It funded parts of the anti-war movement.

To be clear, most of the people involved in these movements had no affiliation with the Soviet Union or knew of Soviet involvement. They … Read more

What progressivism – Social Justice, in a nut shell – always ends up being.

Venezuela is the latest example of what progressivism works out to be in a nutshell. Chavez, another idiot that gained power passing himself off as a man of the people, and buying votes by promising to rob his country’s producers in the name of some fabricated and idiotic social construct, has ruined what once was a growing and thriving economy. Sure Venezuela had problems and poverty before Chavez, but things are far, far worse, today. … Read more

Toward a European War

Over the last week, Russia has been slowly dropping the pretense and invading the Ukraine with active troops, tanks and artillery pieces. Many of these soldiers, as with the earlier incursion into the crimea, are pretending to be rebels, which is technically a war crime.

As has been pointed out, the Ukraine is not the limit of Putin’s ambitions. He has claimed that he will rescue all ethnic Russians who are “threatened” which means … Read more

Still Crazy After All These Years

My post is about that crazy Uncle Ron Paul, but this morning I watched Obama’s tap dance in the Rose Garden, where he talked about accountability wrt the downed airline and mentioned the troubling news that the black boxes were absconded and hustled back to Russia. He wondered out loud what they had to hide. Naturally one has to snicker at any mention of accountablility, and as for hiding something, let’s see, 2 black boxes … Read more

Progressives and their money…

I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, … Read more

And You Thought You Had Problems

This is why I stopped at just being a millionaire, being a billionaire has it’s own set of headaches;

A Swiss court has ordered a Russian billionaire to pay more than $4.5 billion to his ex-wife in what could become the biggest divorce settlement in history.

In papers delivered Monday to both parties, the Geneva Tribunal of First Instance said Dmitry Rybolovlev, an owner of the French soccer club AS Monaco, must pay 4,020,555,987.80

Not Only That, But The Song Blows

The Eurovision Song Contest just crowned it’s new 2014 winner. The 40 some year old song contest has given us the likes of ABBA, Celine Dion, and Julio Iglesias, but there is always room for another superstar…………OK, maybe not super;

I had to watch the first minute a second time to see if his junk was visable through that dress.

Some critics think it was the beard that did it.

From time to time folks … Read more

Yeah, sure… Not that there is anything wrong with that..

I am sorry, but my bullshit detector went on high alert when I saw this article titled Sociologists have found that sporty young men enjoy hopping into bed with other straight guys for a bit of nonsexual spooning. Are we to take this seriously?

‘‘I love a quick cuddle. Just so you remember your friends are around and are there for you.” This is John, a self-identified straight guy who took part in a
