When I say this model is unsustainable..

It is because of facts like the following:

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week.

In 2012, according to the Census

More selective law enforcement

One of the things that the DOJ gets to do is approve which companies get to merge or not. The other day I wrote about the pending Comcast-Time Warner merger, as a means of pointing out the abuses of this administration, and how, conveniently, democrats are the party you buy special favors from. Well, I now have confirmation of a different angle to the Comcast-Time Warner merger story, and the role the DOJ has … Read more

Obamacare update

The other day Black Jesus and the sycophants that follow him around looking for any chance to suckle his cock were all atwitter and telling us how the ACA had enrolled 7.1 million people – a number I think is fake as hell – doing their victory dance, and avoiding giving any details that would leave any reasonable person to conclude that this was all an attempt to put about a ton of lipstick on … Read more

It’s because I rebalanced my 401(K) today

If you missed it, today was a bad day for US stocks, as the market finally seemed to come to it’s senses and correct.

U.S. stocks were slammed on Thursday, with high-flying technology and biotech shares leading the declines that had the Nasdaq Composite posting its worst session in more than two years.

“The market is coming to its senses in some of the high-flying tech names; it looked like there were some pretty

Winter is coming…

April 15th, tax day, draws nigh!

Did you buy your jar of Vaseline yet? Yeah, that was a reference to the whole “Game of Thrones” thing, but it is apt. “An evil monster, undead and wanting to draw the very life out of you, the IRS is”, as Yoda would say.

Me, I will be mailing the IRS a check, as I do every year, because I refuse to let these crooks take more than … Read more

The more things change…

The other day I wrote a post about another leftard that was trying too hard to excuse the evils of communism so they could convince us that what the left is doing these days is for the better, and as I pointed out then, these people are so full of shit that it surprises me they can come up for breath through the bullshit. The left keeps pretending they are the for the little … Read more

The left is doing battlespace preparation

Every once in a while you have some libtard that drops their guard and lets you know how stupid the warped way these fucks view the world really is. Case in point, Edward McClelland and his piece at Salon titled “Communism saved the American worker” where he starts off saying;

I miss the Soviet Union. I never visited the country during its 72 years of existence, and I didn’t much like what I

More proof the left is a bunch of economic illiterates.

This past weekend Matt Drudge of the famous Drudge Report website started a firestorm that had all the usual credentialed LSM idiots thinking they had scored a huge hit against a man they have hated for being instrumental in showing the LSM’s hypocritical status as nothing but a DNC propaganda machine. The controversy started with a tweet from Drudge about having paid what he labeled a “Liberty tax” in the case of the Obamacare penalty. … Read more

Color me unsurprised!

In the vein that reality always trump liberal illusions and fantasies about how things work in the real world, we get an article where a baffled MSM reports that if the minimum wage is jacked up, people will be laid off. I am not surprised that’s what is going to happen, and the article states so:

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – A new study has found that 38 percent of employers will lay workers off

Paper dragon revisited

The other day I had a post up about the dysmal state of affairs in China titled “Can’t hide bad news forever” and why the attempts to hide these things will eventually fail anyway, and it looks like there is another article showing
more of the same:

Measuring a nation’s military capabilities is more than counting troops, weapons and GDP. There’s also the human factor. In that area China is running into
