Sad State Of Affairs

Weekend Thoughts For This Friday 10-05-2012

This Friday's rant is going to be shorter than usual because I am depressed and don't want to talk about it more than I have too. I have been witnessing the antics of really stupid politicians around the World pretending that they can solve the financial problems, very sad. It could be that they really believe they can, even sadder. I watched the Wednesday night verbal fisticuffs between Romney and Obama and got the distinct impression that their banter was not about you and me it was something about them.

When is the government going to get out of our face and start protecting us from the bad guys out there? What in the hell can the little person do about all of the injustice going on around us, sadly nothing. Personally I am getting tired of the same bulls$hit continually handed out on a regular basis and we are expected to say thank you for the chocolate covered bulls$hit.

Follow up:

I am an investor and trader and so far this year because of the antics of our Central Bank, crooked Wall Streeters and Keynesian politicians I am poorer today than several years ago. My home is worth a whole lot less than it was 3 years ago and just above what I bought it for 25 years ago.

Yet I continually hear my Government tell me that everything is getting better and it may take just a little bit more time before they have it figured out. And today I am expected to believe the BLS NFP numbers that will eventually be revised upward. What a sad day this is for all of us taxpayers.

In a interesting article, Global Central Bank Crime Syndicate QE-4-Ever Inflation, states,

The bottom line remains that Greece, Spain and most of the Rest WILL Leave the Euro-zone so that they can freely print infinite debt and money to placate their respective populations and existing Euro debt will either be redenominated in new currencies or defaulted upon, in this respect I am surprised Greece has managed to make it through September. There is also the wild card that Germany could decide to exit first rather than become the next France or Italy.”


This type of talk is very sad indeed, but the 'stupid' keep on breeding and there is nothing I can do about it. Breeding is just between them, in fact they want you to continue to bend over and smile while they have their way with you. Of course, that isn't exactly headline news. A day doesn't go by where we have learned of another sad transgression against the 'sheeples' of the World. Just one Ponzi Scheme after another in which we, the 98%, lose.

We have put our faith in the government to do our bidding, defend us against bad guys and protect us from generally getting screwed. So far that hasn't worked out very well. Ben Bernanke Chairman of the US Fed presented us with QE3 'Infinity' to be sure that his banker buddies don't go out of business, wasn't that a nice thing to do?

The Market Oracle put my thoughts into a clear perspective when they wrote, “The central bank crime syndicate usually tends to work together, not because they are a club of colleagues but rather bankster's with fingers on the triggers of monetary weapons of mass destruction as they seek to play the game of maximising the theft of wealth for their masters, the the elite and respective governments that they control in their never ending pursuit to keep power over the serving class ( that's you, the 98%).”

That is very sad indeed – gee, I thought these fellows were trying to help us? The Oracle goes on to say, “In the pursuit of the monetary cold war, central banks deploy a number of propaganda tactics at their disposal by conjuring economic statistics out of thin air such as inflation and unemployment data to keep the masses confused, that does not reflect economic reality and propagating economic theories that support their debt and money printing policies such as Keynesianism which is liberally reported on as fact by the elite controlled mainstream media.”

There are so many things our Government could do for us instead of putting their grubby fingers into places they are not welcome. You would think they would wear rubber gloves or something! Larry Doyle is one of my favorite authors. He wrote recently that “Despite a wealth of political bluster that Wall Street has been reformed, we awake this morning to see that very little has really changed on this front. Financial regulatory reform? Not today, folks.”

In his article, Wall Street Regulation: Different Day, Same Dog$hit, he calls a spade a spade with this statement, “The simple fact is when it comes to Wall Street regulation, investors, consumers, and the American public at large are being fed the same helping of dog$hit.

And that is not all to be depressed about. The TSA is in the process of deploying a new device that is a blatant breach of the Fourth Amendment to our Constitution which protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures. TSA employees will soon know what you had for breakfast or lunch, if you accidentally stepped on a joint dropped at a bus stop or if you are in possession of a cocain tainted dollar bill you received when getting change.

TSA to Implement Body Scanners that Instantly Know Everything About your Body

Unfortunately, you won’t know what they know, because Homeland Security’s new toy is capable of detecting every molecule on your person from over 164 feet (50 meters) away—without your permission.

This manner of surveillance too closely resembles that of the dystopian narratives of Phillip K. Dick, and will likely do little more than result in false positives, delayed human and automobile traffic in already busy areas, and cluttered minds.

For you folks in California it is even worse – extremely sad indeed.

California gasoline price jumps 8 cents overnight

The cost of gasoline in California jumped 8 cents overnight and is poised to soar to the highest point this year in what analysts say is a supply problem fueled by refinery and pipeline outages.

The AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge on Thursday showed the average price for a gallon of regular gas rose 8 cents overnight, to $4.32, and was up 18 cents over the past week. Average prices are also high nationally at $3.78 a gallon, but inventories in California are lower than they have been in more than 10 years.

The state's supply is hampered by its strict pollution limits, which require a special gasoline blend. Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at, said prices should continue to rise because wholesale gasoline prices have risen $1 a gallon, but average retail prices are only up 30 cents.

I would have never guessed 'they' really want to screw us, but I guess it might be true because every time I turn around there is some damn government A$$hole trying to protect me. Something to think about this weekend. This is really a sad state of affairs.
