Public Enemy #1


Terrorist?  Gangster?  Agent?

Terrorist? Gangster? Agent?

Residents of Maury County, Tennessee, recently expressed concern that their water supply might be contaminated with radiation.  Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) deputy director Sherwin Smith reportedly responded by warning them that complaining about low-quality tap water could be construed by Homeland Security as an act of terrorism.

I can understand government’s concern about false allegations about water quality.  Such false claims could cause a panic and adverse consequences.  But I can also understand that, inevitably, one or more government-employed morons will threaten well-meaning Americans with charges of “terrorism” if they dare to criticize the local water supply.

I can also understand that equating “unverified” claims about water quality with terrorism is another example of government going too far.

Somewhere, there must be a line beyond which private acts cannot be construed as “terrorism”.  So far, however, government hasn’t found or even looked for that line.

Max Keiser Explains Significance of Edward Snowden’s “Leak”


Max Keiser on France24

Twitching, rumpled and passionate, Max Keiser explains the deeper significance of Edward Snowden’s recent intelligence leaks.  It’s not about national security.  Keiser implies that Snowden has revealed evidence of a fascist market-rigging operation that’s ultimately funding America’s secret government–a corporate plutocracy.

Somebody Didn’t Get His Donut


English: A pink, frosted doughnut bought from ...

In Case of Emergency, Break Glass. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A man and his wife/girlfriend video-tape a cop and assert their rights.  The cop (presumably with an IQ of 85 and low blood sugar) loses it.  A second cop (presumably with an IQ of 100 and moderate blood sugar levels), calms the first cop and prevents what may have been an episode of police abuse.

Pretty funny.  Even a little inspiring.  The man and woman were laughing at the cop.  They were armed with a video camera.  And they weren’t afraid. Ooooo–that makes cops mad.

The Land of the Rising Debt

The video below moves a little too quickly to be easily understood.  Nevertheless, this video explains Japan’s national debt problem.  It’s 200% of Japan’s GDP.  “There’s little chance of it being paid back.”  That means Japan must inevitably default on some or most of it’s national debt–and perhaps not so long from now.

The US “official” national debt is $16 trillion–about 100% of US GDP and about half that of Japan’s as a proportion of the US GDP.

But John Williams (shadowstats.com) estimates the true national debt is closer to $90 trillion–over 500% of GDP–2.5 times the size of Japan’s “problem”.  The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the total national debt (including unfunded liabilities) to be over $200 trillion–about 1200% of GDP–six times the size of Japan’s “problem”.

If Japan has “little chance” of repaying a national debt that’s 200% of Japan’s GDP, how will the US repay a national debt that’s somewhere between 500% and 1200% of US GDP?)

A Lesson In Irony


Feeding (Making?) Dependents

Feeding (Making?) Dependents

This year, the Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to distribute free Meals and Food Stamps to 46 million people–the  greatest amount ever. 

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us “Please Do Not Feed  the  Animals.”  Their stated reason for the policy is that, “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

Thus ends today’s lesson in irony.

Three Coincidences


Also, government's . . . .

Also, government’s way of trying to remain anonymous . . . .

Some people believe in coincidences.  Others deny that there’s any such thing—at least in the arena of politics.

I haven’t made up my mind.  I’m inclined to believe that, while conspiracies are likely explanations for many seeming “coincidences,” “innocent” coincidences are still possible.

Nevertheless, when someone flips a coin that comes up heads ten times in a row, five times in a row, or just three times in a row, even naïve fellows like myself begin to suspect that something more than “coincidence” is at work.

For example,

•  On Tuesday, June 18th, President Obama said that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke had done a “great job” but had, “already stayed a lot longer than he wanted or he was supposed to.”

Later that day, former Federal Reserve governor Laurence Meyer observed that, with that remark, President Obama, “. . . essentially fired Ben Bernanke on the spot and gave him a fairly tepid testimonial afterward.”

I wrote an article on President Obama’s remark and hypothesized that if Mr. Bernanke were about to “resign,” it would almost certainly mean that his inflationary policy of “stimulating” the economy with enormous injections of fiat dollars was also destined to end.  If QE3 ($85 billion/month) was about to end, we could expect a significant decline in US and global stock markets and the possible onset of the Greater Depression.

Therefore, it seemed odd to me that, since our economy was already fragile, President Obama would risk making such an unflattering statement about Chairman Bernanke.  Didn’t Obama realize that any suggestion that Bernanke was leaving the Federal Reserve could be perceived as evidence that the rats were leaving the ship?  Didn’t Obama understand that his remark might be sufficient to diminish public confidence and thus do real harm to the economy?

Was Obama simply dumb enough to accidentally make such an imprudent remark?  Or was Obama intentionally signaling that Ben Bernanke and QE3 were both about to go?
