Can the US ever pay off its debt?

Decades of expanding government programs, waste, endless and costly wars, etc. have racked up such an enormous pile of debt that it has become almost impossible to pay it down.-Paying Down The Debt Is Now Almost Mathematically Impossible

36th Dead Banker of the Year

Geert Tack worked as a private banker for ING and managed portfolios of wealthy clients. The Belgian had a lot of respect in the financial world and was known as an up and top professional. His sudden disappearance was also smashed like a bomb. "If Tack himself was having trouble he has managed to keep it well hidden", say colleagues.- "Riddles" Surround 36th Dead Banker Of The Year


An intractable economic condition that inevitably arises as excessively issued fiat currency compulsively pursues non-productive wealth assets in a grossly over-leveraged economy, which has been artificially reflated by monetary authorities in a misguided attempt to synthetically engineer growth via extreme monetization.

This effectively prevents the real economy on the ground from realizing the healthy normalization and natural balance of free market forces necessary for genuine capital formation, which is essential to generating legitimate and sustainable economic growth. Read more: StealthFlation – Defined

Not Saying Much

To say that most cops don't murder people or steal private property or beat up people who've done nothing wrong is not saying much, because ALL cops work in organizations in which some cops do commit these wrongs; and they go right on working with the malefactors, doing nothing to expose them or to bring them to justice. Cop solidarity is legendary, as is the power of police unions. Anyone who works for such organizations is part of an evil enterprise -- not evil by happenstance (after all, some evil may be committed in any type of organization by someone associated with it), but evil systematically by virtue of the monopoly of violence such police organizations possess and their members' capacity to commit evils without being punished for them in nearly all cases.
All of the foregoing, moreover, is in addition to the fact that every cop commits himself to enforcing all the laws, and some of those laws are manifestly wicked, being clear violations of people's natural rights, among other things.-Robert Higgs

Republicans Doomed in 2016?

... there is now a “Blue Wall” block of states that virtually guarantees a Democrat will win the presidential contest in 2016 and for the foreseeable future. -The Democrats have a lock on the White House

Free Speech?

The Ferguson "protesters". They want their "free speech", and yes, they have a right to it and to protest, but consider this:
How tolerant would they be of someone in their midst who said the following: "Michael Brown was a criminal thug who got what he deserved". How would they react? Most likely they would beat such a person, or possibly throw rocks at them, endangering their life. In other words, they would prove themselves lying hypocrites, as all "liberals" are. And if the anti-Brown person then defended themselves by pulling a gun and shooting the evil asses of the scumbag, intellectually dishonest "liberals" threatening their life , do you think they would be prosecuted? Of course, because self-defense and "free speech" are only really allowed for the politically correct.

Quote of the Day: How to Know Your Society is Doomed

"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you; when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice; you may know that your society is doomed." – Ayn Rand; Atlas Shrugged, 1957

Bret Alan: Liberals Blame Greed

Liberals love to blame the problems of America on greed. Greed causes this, greed causes that... except, greed doesn't cause anything. Is it greed that compels people of all classes, even those just trying to eke out a living, to be complicit in the overall system of over-consumption, waste, abuse, pollution, and dehumanization?

When the people at the top are guilty, it can easily look like greed. Don't ignore the thousands below them who worked as hard, or harder, wishing the whole time they had that job... even the ones old and wise enough to know it wasn't in the cards for them, old and wise enough to know better, maybe even old and wise enough to have made a positive difference if they were ever given a chance (but were instead just a cog in a bullshit machine).

Liberals vote Democrat and scream greed, ironically voting for candidates who outspend their Republican opponents. That money didn't come from caring individuals, folks. The money came from wealthy donors, donors who either were rewarding past efforts to defend them (in the case of incumbents), or that were opening the door for them, should they take office (in the case of new challengers).

It's one thing for your politicians to be bought. You can't control that. After all who are you? You're just one person. You can't change anything, right? Except... if you vote for them, you're supporting them. If you're voting for that Democratic Senate candidate who spent tens of millions of dollars filling your commercial breaks with repetitive drivel, you're voting for the repetitive drivel, not to mention all the unsavory bastards who funded it (who now have the ear of your congressperson).

Ah, but liberals convince themselves that Democrats hate doing it. Since they hate doing it, it's not for the love of it... so it's not greed. Sure, Democrats support a system of endless wars, economic exploitation, growing inequality, global warming, cuts to social programs, and a general dickish attitude towards anyone who even so much as hints at there ever being a choice beyond Democrats and Republicans...

... but at least they hold their nose while doing it, right? At least they don't revel in how horrible they're helping to make the world. Republicans own it and take pride in it, but at least Democrats act holier than thou when supporting the exact same things. You know, because some judges ruled gay marriage is legal in a bunch of states, they convince themselves Democrats have done fuck-all in the last 30 years.

They haven't.

That was the gay rights movement which achieved those things, which is itself very effective where Democrats have failed. There's no reason for the Democratic party to even exist. The people who vote for them don't support what Democratic politicians actually do, they just find what Democrats say to be soothing and what Republicans say to be terrifying, plus they're too busy/lazy to find out what either actually does, probably too exhausted from their job where they more than likely make the world a slightly worse, or at the very least more materialistic, place.

Hey, you gotta pay the bills.

America's liberals are very much part of the problem, and that is why nothing gets done. It's not Republican/conservative obstructionism, it's liberals not giving a damn and just doing whatever is easiest. It's easy to vote Democrat and think you helped. It's so easy that it should set off a bullshit detector in your brain. You should realize, "This isn't going to be enough."

And it's not.-

Blog of the Moment: Captain Capitalism

Haven't done one of these (or much real blogging in general) in a while (a long while), but hey, now I'm back baby! Found this guy during a video search on silver and then discovered his blog:
I'm already dead Blythe. 67% dead to be precise.

Like my stepdad who is about 90%, I also realized that I am on the opposite side of 50%. My family's genetics is not that great. Nearly every male has died of cancer, alcoholism or stroke, and if any of us Clarey's make it past 60 it's a god damned miracle. And thus at 40, I'm 67% dead.

This permits me a huge amount of levity, freedom, and intellectual honesty because I no longer have to care. Naturally, the fact I have no children allows me this levity, but in the end, it is a benefit. My time on this planet is for the majority, over. And since I have no children I have no long term vested interest in it or what happens to it. So I'm allowed the precious gift of merely watching it without the attachment or concern that most of you other people have to it.

I enjoy people suffering. I enjoy people suffering their mistakes. I enjoy watching the limitless single moms and dead beat dads of my generation try to scramble and salvage their lives that are beyond repair as they live vicariously through their underperforming children. I enjoy the liberal arts majors PANICALLY realizing their financial lives are fucked.

It's great! I cannot think of a better, more poetic justice and gift that life could grant me.-The Benefit of the 67% Dead Club

It Can’t Happen Here, Right? Right?!

Naomi Wolf wrote in her book “The End of America” that there are ten things that need to happen in order to bring about a fascist state.  Let’s evaluate them, shall we?

  1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy – I’d say that the threat of domestic terrorism and foreign terrorism meets this requirement.  But there are other internal enemies as well such as Ron Paul voters and war veterans who were specifically targeted early on by the Obama administration as potential domestic terrorists.  As for foreign enemies, we keep on hearing about North Korea, Iran, Russia, and, to a lessor extent, China in addition to Islamic terror groups.  Never mind that the United States still has a military that could easily squash any other State power in the world.
  2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place – Check.  The CIA had secret prisons all over Europe where torture took place.  I’m also certain that Bradley Manning was taken to a secret prison and tortured with sleep depravation.  No wonder he wants to be a woman now.
  3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens – The police and most other law enforcement agencies are answerable only to the higher ups.  Moreover, they are becoming increasingly militarized.  It will not surprise me if in the next decade or so that armored police cars being used as patrol cars become commonplace.  On top of that, they can literally commit murder and pretty much get away with it.  Usually they claim the mantra of “officer safety” even as the unarmed elderly man is bleeding to death onto their shiny boots.
  4. Set up an internal surveillance system – While Edward Snowden blew the whistle on this, it has been going on since at least the mid-90s with the rise of the Internet.  Do you think that the NSA would have sat idly by and let such information go to waste?  The Echelon system was up and running for a long time before they were hacking Gmail accounts.
  5. Harass citizens’ groups – The recent IRS scandals have pretty much confirmed this.  Moreover, this kind of thing has been happening for a long time where the current administration uses an agency to suppress citizens’ groups.  Nixon was nearly impeached over this.  It’s just that people like Obama will do it more often and on a grander scale than their predecessors because the precedent has be established.  And lawyers often live by precedent.
  6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release – Indefinite detention, as authorized by the NDAA and signed by President Obama himself and given bipartisan support, is the very definition of this.  Before that, there are many instances of American citizens being forced into detention only to be released later a la the Japanese internment camps during World War II under FDR.
  7. Target key individuals – There are many people who have been targeted by the government.  Curt Weldon, who was in the process of exposing the gross incompetence with regards to the 9/11 attacks, was targeted by the FBI and lost his re-election bid as a result.  This is just one example.
  8. Control the press – The press is, by and large, not given access without the consent of the government.  As a result, they are not able to report the truth of anything in relation to government activities because to do so would result in loss of contact and loss of job.  Possibly loss of life.  Moreover, the mainstream press is full of Statist sycophants who would do anything to keep government big, fat, and greedy.
  9. Treat all political dissidents as traitors – Pretty much sums up the directive that was issued by then HHS Secretary Janet Napolitano when she stated that people with Gadsden flags and Ron Paul stickers were terrorists.
  10. Suspend the rule of law – The rule of law is basically non-existent, largely because there tens of thousands of laws in the Federal ledger alone.  If there is law against nearly every activity, then the law is applied subjectively by law enforcement, which means there is no rule of law, just a bunch of justifications for beating your face in when a LEO feels like it.

The truth is, fascism is already here.  Voting is nothing more than a formality; you are merely choosing between two factions of powerbrokers, not two ideological opponents.  The economic policy of the US is basically to allow private enterprise so long as it suits the government officials.  And the bureaucracy itself basically runs things while allowing politicians to put on a show.

It has happened here.  We are under the fascist rule of neo-Aristocrats.  And the sooner that the American people realize this instead of putting false hope in political parties or political movements, the sooner we can turn things around and bring about true freedom and liberty.

Two Factions

You’ll often hear arguments from people stating that voting in the United States doesn’t matter because both parties are two sides of the same coin.  You’ll also hear that voting does matter because both the Republicans and Democrats represent very different ideologies.

I think it is a little more complicated than that because I believe that both arguments are correct, despite their inherent contradictions.  This is because I’m looking at a bigger picture than most people when it comes to voting and political parties in general.

From where I see it, most people who vote for a Democrat or a Republican do so with the intention of supporting someone who they perceive as upholding a certain ideology.  In other words, most individuals who vote are voting for their beliefs and they believe that the person they vote has those beliefs.

The truth is, most politicians are very pragmatic and opportunistic at the same time.  While they may be morons in a lot of things, they are masters of making a deal.  By that I mean that they are really good at working out an agreement with another party and gaining an edge of their own.  If the US haggled more, they’d convince most grocers to sell their stuff for a penny or less.

Because they are people of underhanded dealings and not people of honor or integrity, they have little use for ideologues or concrete political beliefs in general.  They see political ideals, such as Socialism or conservatism, as a means to an end: ensuring a solid voter base.

The mainstream voters for these candidates are fairly gullible as well.  They will often project their own views and beliefs onto the candidates they intend to vote for.  This is why you have pro-life voters supporting Republicans, despite their long track record of doing nothing about abortion, while you have various minority groups supporting Democrats despite Democrats being largely old, white former-segregationists.  In either case, these groups are projecting their beliefs onto a person who really doesn’t give a damn about their politics.

But what do politicians really want?  What are their beliefs, if they generally hold the ones they publicly support in such contempt?  The answer is that they believe in themselves.

A politician is generally a narcissist, like many who like the spotlight.  I remember a press corp. standing outside a room when, sure enough, some important Congressman or Senator came strolling out to greet them.  He was practically glowing with divine energy as he began to address the press about the innocuous and utterly meaningless agreement he has just brokered.  The deal itself didn’t matter really.  It was all about the limelight.

Politicians in both parties are brokers of power, pure and simple.  They make deals to enrich themselves.  That’s why if you ever want to further a cause, you will need a lot of money to coerce a politician into supporting you.  Gone are the days of grassroots influencing politicians.

The truth is, when you vote, you are just deciding which faction will have the most influence.  Ideology is not a factor, but the top donors are.  They are two sides of the same coin but they are also different in that they get support from different corporations and institutions.

Except, of course, the largest ones that can afford to give money to both parties.  They are the true masters of the government.

The End of Oppression - Part 2: The Game

"The End of Oppression" is a six-part series of videos which show what it will take for humanity to finally outgrow and escape its long history of violence and oppression.

Part Two ("The Game") shows how tyrants use the game called "politics" to legitimize violent domination and to deceive decent people into advocating their own subjugation and enslavement.-

Quote of the Day: Diversity

“People prefer to be with people like themselves. For all the celebration of ‘diversity,’ it’s sameness that dominates. Most people favor friendship with those who have similar backgrounds, interests and values. It makes for more shared experiences, easier conversations, and more comfortable silences. Despite many exceptions, the urge is nearly universal. It’s human nature.” - Robert J. Samuelson

Anarchist Quote of the Day

As a libertarian anarchist, I am pressed from time to time to defend anarchy against those who dispute its desirability or its feasibility. But, really, why should I be the one who must defend this condition (that is, the absence of rulers)? I live in a world in which gangs of total strangers -- people I do not know, people who do not know me, people I want nothing to do with -- presume to order me about in countless ways and to strip me of my wealth at their pleasure, putting the plunder to uses that in many cases I consider utterly abhorrent and achieving this domination over me only by making credible threats to bring violence to bear against me should I resist their impositions. THAT outrageous complex of actions, not my embrace of anarchy, is the condition that requires a defense. Strange to say, although the prevailing rulers' insolence and moral arrogance rise to horrifying heights, many of their victims take completely for granted the legitimacy of the degrading and exploitative setup under which they live -- Stockholm syndrome writ large.-Robert Higgs

Reasons Why Communism Sucks

Reason #8: Another mushy-headed concept which communists like to harp on is "the means of production." In short, they wanted some excuse that sounded philosophical that would justify stealing factories. But to try to define this is any specific or rational sort of way is impossible.

Again, consider the island analogy. Two people are on an island. One finds a rock and a stick and makes a spear, while the other sits on his butt. The guy with the spear then says, "Hey, I made a spear, and if you can use my spear to get a fish, we can split the fish between us." But as it happens, the other guy is a communist, declares the spear to be "capital" constituting the "means of production," bitches about being oppressed by the other guy's offer, slugs the guy and steals his spear. Because to ACCEPT the guy's perfectly reasonable offer is to accept capitalism.

Yes, you can try to make up some distinction between a spear and a factory, but that distinction will be based on envy and emotion, not actual moral or philosophical principles. If the first guy took two weeks to build a boat, and then offered to let the other guy use it to go catch bigger fish, would the boat-builder be some evil capitalist oppressor? After all, how dare he benefit from the "labor" of the other guy? (Never mind what he had to do to GET the boat.) The other guy neeeeeeeeds a boat to fish! He should seize it, and righteously overthrow the evil oppressors in the name of the collective (which in that case, is just him)!

Or he could choose NOT to be a dumbass, accept capitalism and the concept of private property, take the deal, and BOTH could benefit from the arrangement.-

"We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency”

The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life.-Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit..."

Cop Throws a Hissy Fit When This Woman Refuses to Show Her ID

The Good Cop/Bad Cop Question

I've been saying this over and over but thanks to Robert Higgs for saying it better than I could. It's necessary to emphasize this because we keep hearing the idiotic objection that most cops are good guys and the nonsense that "the cops I know personally, have encountered, etc., have been nice and are sweet as pie". Bullshit!

The whole good cop/bad cop question can be disposed of much more decisively. We need not enumerate what proportion of cops appears to be good or listen to someone's anecdote about his Uncle Charlie, an allegedly good cop. We need only consider the following: (1) a cop's job is to enforce the laws, all of them; (2) many of the laws are manifestly unjust, and some are even cruel and wicked; (3) therefore every cop has agreed to act as an enforcer for laws that are manifestly unjust or even cruel and wicked. There are no good cops.


The most active group I had discussions in was one saying women should have no rights. Most posters think that women shouldn’t even have the right to say “no,” when it comes to sex. “A woman should NEVER have the right to say no. It’s her duty to be sexually available to men whenever.” Some say that the only value women have is to be a “cook, maid, and whore to her man.” Viewing women as nothing but property was the reoccurring theme here.-BDSM is abuse and rape culture

Fox News Actually Provides News!

People like to call Fox News "Faux News", and I'm not personally a fan of their version of statist big government pro-military "conservatism".

MSNBC doesn't even run much news on the weekends (they were showing one of their prison shows again), and CNN, well, fuck 'em.

The Rise of the Caliphate

The Bush Concept had it exactly backwards. Fighting them over there so we would not have to fight them here was only going to inflame the situation, which is exactly what has happened. The West must fight them here so it can leave them alone there. Islam has no place in the West. It must be driven out again, just as it was driven out of Spain and Austria centuries ago.

I warned about the rise of the caliphate years ago, to the mocking disbelief of some who genuinely believed the so-called Arab Spring meant the rise of liberal democracy in Araby. Now we're seeing it take shape. The nations of the West will eventually decide it is necessary to ban Islam again, and repatriate Muslims to the House of Submission again, so the sooner it does so, the less bloody the conflict in the House of War will be.

One friend of the Foley family said something important. "These savages have got to be stopped. It’s coming West." Only it is not coming West. It began coming West decades ago, and now there are millions of them in the West. What is coming is the Second Reconquista. The West is not going to die. Europe belongs to us.-Fight them over here

The post or object that you were commenting has been removed by its owner and can no longer be commented on.

 Part of a thread on a Bret Alan post on Zuckerturd's FascistBook that was removed because (apparently) a "racist" word was used somewhere during the discussion (using the "N word" is the ultimate crime these days, at least if you're white). I guess it means I also can't post excerpts from Huckleberry Finn there.

The last comment is the one I was unable to post. You'll notice from my title that it says it was removed by its owner but it was NOT removed by its "owner" if owner means Bret Alan, so I assume it means instead that Zuckerturd owns all our words on FB.
