Those low interest rates are fucking us savers over

I do not believe that it was coincidence that US interest rates, and for that matter interest rates across the globe, have been held so low for the last 5 years or so. That’s because as the report titled McKinsey Global Institute -Quantitive Easing (QE) and ultra-low interest rates: Distributional effects and risks (72 pages) shows, our government, and many others, used QE to transfer wealth from savers to themselves.

Traditionally interest rates have floated … Read more

The Baby Thieves

I’m sure the only reason this hasn’t happened more often is because no one had ever thought of it:

Last summer a pregnant Italian mother flew to England for a two-week Ryanair training course at Stansted. Staying at an airport hotel, she had something of a panic attack when she couldn’t find the passports for her two daughters, who were with her mother back in Italy. She called the police, who arrived at her room

Play on, PLAYA!

A new round of talks is scheduled to start between Iran and what is known as the 5+1 group – the 5 UN security council members with a veto and Germany – and this time everyone has high hopes about these talks going somewhere for a change. I sure it isn’t because these idiots have fallen for the narcissist in chief’s misguided belief that Iran will see he means well and finally give up its … Read more

The one thing the article doesn’t mention?

The Dutch are starting a campaign to turn their citizens into snitches, by educating them on the means to spot and turn in illegal marijuana growers. The article talks about the “risk” associated with these illegal growers, whom get accused of stealing power to keep their hydroponic operations going, to give this campaign the veneer of legitimacy. But the real reason that the Dutch government is doing this is never mentioned. From the article:… Read more

The Swiss Miss

OK:

Switzerland will hold a vote on whether to introduce a basic income for all adults, in a further sign of growing public activism over pay inequality since the financial crisis.

A grassroots committee is calling for all adults in Switzerland to receive an unconditional income of 2,500 Swiss francs ($2,800) per month from the state, with the aim of providing a financial safety net for the population.

Organizers submitted more than the 100,000

Leftist reminds us why pacificsts can’t be trusted on foreign policy issues

Nick Baumann over at Slate, a hard core leftist, has an unbelievably stupid post up titled “Neville Chamberlain was right“, where he makes the insane assertion that Chamberlain, the man that let Hitler rape Czechoslovakia and emboldened him to actually think that he could do whatever he wanted, because the diplomatic types, in an effort to avoid conflict, would turn a blind eye to his efforts. No, I am not making that up. … Read more

Swiss war game invasion by bankrupt frogs

And I have to say that as far as insane scenarios go, to me, this one would rank second, right after the one where France votes itself into an Islamic Republic, and then decides it needs to conquer the rest of Europe. I do have to say that a horde of angry & starving marxist-wannabe frogs charging you to steal your shit is a funny thing to war game against, but the Swiss might be … Read more

Ya, OK… Sure

Them Swedes sure are freaky folks and I do mean freaky:

A man who openly masturbated on a Stockholm beach has been acquitted of sexual assault in court after it was ruled he was not targeting a specific person, with the prosecutor saying it’s “okay” to play with yourself in public.

Guess I am gonna hear a lot more stories of people whipping it out and spanking it furiously in Sweden whenever the urge hits … Read more

Timely post on Syria from a military perspective

Strategy Page has an awesome post about why the public in Western countries have turned on their leader’s decision to intervene in Syria, because of the supposed use of Chemical weapons by the Assad regime on the opposition. Now, remember that these leaders suddenly feel compelled to act because of some hard to verify attack that killed some 300 to 1000 people, depending on the source, in a conflict where over 100,000 people have … Read more

Revising the story..

If you hear Joe Biden and John Kerry talk, they all but are 100% certain Bashar Assad himself used chemical weapons on people to justify the WH’s recent need to create a diversion from all the scandals popping up. Unfortunately for these two, and the people that like them feel the evidence is a slam dunk, even the LSM finds some doubt. With that country in chaos, who’s to say that the chemical attack … Read more
