Fed, Yellen, Interest Rates, Capital Markets – Roll Your Dice

To quote the mediameisters: “U.S. economic conditions are getting close to warranting America’s first interest rate hike since 2006. Or at least that’s what officials at the Federal Reserve thought in July…” How many times have you seen that scaremongering tactic over the last two years? I peruse the news daily, looking for headlines such [...]

Who Avoided What Cliff?

First, the legalized gangsters in the nation’s toilet raised the debt ceiling at the 11th hour so that the US government can borrow more and spend more, in spite of the looming budget carnage. Then they partied down into the wee hours of New Year’s Eve and agreed to further fleece our most productive people [...]

Mass Monkey Rinse & Repeat

Friday, July 20, 2012 15:48 4 Comments

The financial news, along with Capitol Hill, has lots of comedy to offer up these days. Unfortunately, I have been a wee bit too busy to properly dissect it and comment here on my blog, or elsewhere. Truth is, I’ve taken almost a month off to nurse a whole host of injuries and spend a whole lot of [...]

The Government is (Still) Devising Schemes to Steal Your 401k

Sunday, February 21, 2010 7:28 1 Comment

Yet every scheme comes with a proclamation that says, “your government is looking to help you secure your retirement and your future.” Even the sheeple are offering resistance to this one. I’ve been covering the topic of government-mandated 401Ks since the fall of 2008, and I even noted that I detected the unmistakable whiff of [...]

Tomorrow (Tuesday, October 6th) I will be back on the Mike Church Show, on the Patriot channel on Sirius radio, channel 144.

The 401k Usurpers Are Back

Monday, September 28, 2009 12:39 2 Comments

Except the media calls them “the experts.” This article, “Experts push retirement plan reform,” discusses the agenda of Teresa Ghilarducci, a Communistic redistributionist who I have discussed in several previous posts. She has been pushing the nationalization of retirement savings through the use of GRAs, or, Guaranteed Retirement Accounts. This whole [...]

Tuesday, May 5, 2009 7:43 Comments Off

People hit by hard times need money quick. Or perhaps they just don’t like risky investments anymore, or they don’t trust the intentions of the government concerning 401k plans. However, due to “liquidity” problems, some people are having their investments frozen in their 401k plans. A good article from the Wall Street Journal: Some investors [...]

The Federal Reserve’s Victims

Tuesday, April 21, 2009 22:29 Comments Off

The Federal Reserve, with its money-pumping machine distorting credit markets and interest rates, along with creating piles of debt among the citizenry, is a totalitarian and destructive force. The Fed destroys time preferences because it turns people into consumption-oriented, gotta-have-it-now debt addicts. The Fed has wrecked the housing market and turned homes into leveraged bets.

Burying Dead Bulls, Saying ‘No’ to Keynesians, and Other Quick Thoughts for Navigating a Depression

Monday, March 9, 2009 0:00 Comments Off

The following is an interview I did in February 2009 with a student from Eastern Kentucky University who was looking for an alternative, common sense viewpoint for the average person for approaching personal finance issues during the Depression, amid all the pro-stock market propaganda. It is not an investment advice article or a survivalist’s guide. [...]
