And the Balloon is Fully Inflated

14 Dec

So, now that the Fed is theoretically announcing the impending rise in interest rates, (looks like Wednsday), the Dow, across many sectors, finds itself losing value. Hmm.

Because, the market, historically, has been, an expression of at least 2 things. First is the value of the bricks, mortar and inventory of the entity. Second, there is the value forward, the buy and hope element, that a stock bought will increase in value.

But in this Brave New World of financial manipulations, there has been a third element.

As the Fed has introduced more and more money into the economy, sans the Volker required increase in wealth, (the charter of the Fed, to add dollars as value is created), those smart fellas on K Street traded, via stocks, attempting to harness the fluctuation, yesterdays dollars for todays.

If $1.00 is a buck today, and 100 bucks exist in the system, and the Fed prints 10 more bucks, the stock you bought yesterday for a buck, is now worth a $buck.10. The bricks didn’t change, the mortar is still the same and the inventory, well, it will cost more, because yesterdays dollar has been reduced in value by 10%.

And the fellas on Wall Street know it. The regular easing by the Fed, introducing more dollars while the economy was stagnant, has caused inflation. “They” won’t tell you. You go to the grocery store. You know it.

The real crime is that our leaders hold up this “improving” Stock Market, it’s recovery from the greatest recession of our life time to record highs, as proof of the wisdom of their stewardship.

What it really is, is yet another revelation of our government’s abuse of facts to assuage our fears and lead our fellow lemmings to the cliff.

The Fed is gonna raise interest rates. That is good news. Now, your gonna have to make your own bucks.

So Much Hot Air

1 Dec

I have some wonts.

Inspired as I am, to watch the major news shows, in an attempt to discern the lies, I find myself torn. Against a backdrop of offspring who are wisely choosing not to reproduce and a need to protect, the conflict within rages.

On the one hand, some counsel that one should turn away, all news is bad news, and I only damage my soul. On the other, I hear the voices of the old slave owners scolding me to not give up, that I have a duty to perform, nay, a birthright to protect, nay, an endowment to preserve for future generations.

All of which is lost in the fog of daily bills, taxes, and the untold suffering inflicted on the defenseless animals, from the non rescued puppies to the black unborn, take yer pick.

Today’s fallacies entertain us by construing that an act of aggression against terrorists can be found in the agreeance of nations to do “something” about Global Warming, er.., Climate Change, uhhhhh….Extreme Weather.

Our fearless leader, was recorded in Paris, site of the recent (choose yer demon) terrorist attacks, (where the unarmed were mowed down like baby seals crossing the ice), basically threatening the small under developed nations of the world to take the money, (hundreds of billions) and join the (“it’s hot in here”) club. Sounds like a bust out to me.

And this is where the entertainment comes in.

The “news” broadcast an elucidation by showing smog in Bejing and a city (escapes me) in India. Ground level reporting of an atmospheric concern.

The next story was a blerp from NPR journoactivist David Attenborough, asking us why we would not listen to the paid professionals who have dedicated their lives to understanding this mystery.

And then, the Great Cosmic Communicator, Entertainment Director of Forever and Then Some, scrolled across the bottom of the screen, letting us know that the Pope, ensconced as he is in his embrace of evolution, geologic time lines and social control, was agreeing with the scientists, and that we should follow, the people, the paid professionals, that have dedicated their lives…..you get the point.

First of all, smog is pollution, and is a tactile problem. Obama’s solution is having us shut down our “clean” coal energy plants, equipped with all manner of scrubbers and technology that deliver fossil fuel energy at the least enviromental cost, and to transfer our coal to China, where they are completing coal burning plants at an horrific rate, sans scrubbers. That makes sense if you are concerned about the effect of exhausting fossils upon the geosphere.

I, for one, have posited repeatedly, to any that would listen, (a small smattering to be sure), that we ‘Mericans, have a duty to the planet, to burn every freakin gallon of gasoline that could be produced in our “clean” burning cars, rather than have it burned in the jalopies found throughout the third world.

These petards have done little to sway the terrorists. ISIS is rapidly building a coal fired plant, as we speak, and the Russians have armed their planes and ground forces with air to, and surface to, air missiles, ostensibly to fight a force that has no,,well,,air.

It is working.

So, we have a world leader, whose paradigm is exposed, as it were, in the Alinsky/Piven spasorasms, to be  an osculating mouthpiece for the forces that seek to weaken us, and thereby require that we be transformatized, for our own good.

This is not incompetence. This is sheer brilliance. And I don’t mean Obama. As a mouthpiece, his ability to spew eloquent nonsense is unparalleled. His mind is a vaccuum.  Yah, he sucks.

No, it is his Masters. The ones that selected the African, with no claim to the stain on the planet, to harness the former slaves, to once again lead them to a land where there is no hope for a better lot, where their labor ticket is punched by illegals, and their children’s slaughter is subsidized. I mean really, you people, pick a better role model. Barkley, or LeBron, or even Cosby. As to the latter, at least you know you are gonna get screwed.
Extreme Weather is just the latest in the litany of Grand Designs. To hear Obama slurp it, Final, Urgent, Solutions. Gov’t funded paid professionals are subsidized to study that which is beyond the reach of normal men. The satellites belong to the government, (that used to be us), the super computers belong to the government, (that used to be us), the data belongs to the  government, (that used to be us). The curtain is up, and you and I are not allowed behind it. Just trust us. Ignore our little lies, it is for your own good.

If you think that people aren’t willing to make the most intimate act into public performance, and won’t, in fact,  do absolutely anything for money, check first with Darwin and then with the whores.

None of it matters. Murder is performed every day by paid professionals. Rape, and “life of the mother” is a constant refrain to defend the murder of, (to use the words of one of their own) “the little bastards.”

These are chilling revisitations of horrors, that men far better than any of us, once defeated. Soon, “we” will be blamed, once again for that in which we had no hand other than “?” for this holocaust.

(Take a breath.)
I, though a mixture of unfortunate and fortunate events, was graced with a trip to Germany. I visited several of the historied cities. Some were stoically stained/embellished with the pock marks and monuments of war, Others unabashedly shared the horrors and teaching moments of their past. (Some explained commerce demanded expungement.)  I was struck by an overarching environmental reality. I can’t imagine that the continent, with its noble and ancient past and architecture, as a whole, doesn’t share this affliction.

On the continent hosting the new transfer of wealth over concern for air quality and future generations, the need to control money and energy is gracedby this most recognizable stench.

Sewage and cigarettes.
