The economy is contracting, and Bloomberg News pronounced it “reasonable.” Yahoo lost money but their customers are happy, so apparently we are now in business for altruistic reasons and not to make a profit———–until a company can’t pay its employees, but I guess we’ll worry about that later. We have teeming swarms of illegal aliens in the country and are trying to come up with legislation to rationalize their criminality. We have sunk to a point where we try to arbitrarily decide which laws to enforce and which to ignore. We’re rationalizing aberrant behavior and collectively going to hell in a hand basket, and you know how it’s explained away?
What difference does it make?
That defines where we now sit as a country, and not only was that sociopathic and lame-ass response given full exception, it made it acceptable for walking away from everything from which anybody accepts accountability. It’s a day-pass. A free out-of-jail-card. A shrug of the shoulders. An amalgamation of policies and thinking so misdirected a middle income person can “earn” more money staying at home than they can working, and if they can quite literally fake a good limp they can be considered disabled. I’m not a lawyer, but happen to know one cannot be returned to “able” once considered “disabled” so that basically locks in monthly payments forever.
And whom do you think is going to pay for it? What Hillary Clinton did last week and what all the chicken heart Congressmen said to America as long as one becomes boisterous, bangs the table and goes on the offensive is that they no longer have to face up to their misdeeds. When did “That’s my story and I’m sticking to it” become plausible?
We have all had our trust violated at one time or another in our lives, and, just in case you are one of those exceptions who hasn’t I suggest you take a hard look at what our government is doing right not and break out the K-Y Jelly. We’re into Monopoly Money and dealing with Bazillions and Gajillions and might as well all be speaking Esperanto or chanting Jabberwocky. To say we’re in uncharted waters would be to understate the obvious, for we are just about to go across Niagara Falls and the Oval Office position is to suggest we look the other way, chastise responsible people for disagreeing, suggest we demand less of ourselves, and insist mediocrity is acceptable.
The fourth quarter numbers came out this week and showed we’re well on our way to nowhere: a one percent growth “spurt” and the media chimed in on cue to say it was great. Great? Are you kidding me? I no longer provide investment advice but I made an observation about a month or so back that said we’d be in negative growth one year from now and that the stock market would be at 6500. I’m about to double-down to say I was wrong. The stock market averages will be much lower and your retirement account will show it. If you have corporate stock, it will have sunk. If you’re in a mutual fund it will have dropped. If you’re in “cash” the dollar will no longer be worth anything except which foreigner’s consider it or assign in value.
We’re in an acceleration phase of a vacuum and going lower, and panic and selling will be like an avalanche, for hysteria has been proven over the years to occur much quicker than greed. Don’t worry about how fast you can react or protect yourself because believe me, your options are vaporizing daily. Yet………yet………yet, the media is saying it’s all OK, right along with the propagandists in the White House. Yahoo is oxymoronically in business to lose money, but, its being said that the company has happy customers. What planet are we living on? Talk to your bankers for crying out loud. Whaddya think they’d say to you if you said I can’t pay my bills but I’m a pretty nice guy?
Once they quit laughing and start foreclosure procedures, they’d all go out for a beer and say, “You aren’t going to believe what this guy said today.” Well, that’s what your government is telling you. I’ve had teenagers do some pretty silly stuff and they STILL had more fiscal sense than the fools in DC, who lecture us as if we’re the idiots the very moment we dare to define their misfeasance.
I’ve never been more confident in a prediction in my life nor more saddened, but when panic sets in, it’s going to get ugly and your retirement nest egg is going to look like a pimple compared to what it looks like today, and all you’re going to hear is “what difference does it make?” When the reaper comes for the keys to your house, let me know how well that explanation works for you. Then again, maybe it’s time to paraphrase another Clinton and say, “Well, it depends upon what the definition of unpayable means. If I can’t pay you but at least want to, does that count?”
The Democrats believe and I believe America has gotten stupid enough to return the Clintons to the White House. That is, provided we’re not a bought and paid for Chinese province by then. Two people who skipped class the day ethics were taught in law school. Two people who consider truth to be an option. Two people who don’t even live together. Two people who have had “friends” magically disappear. Two people who will shake your hand while they hold a dull knife in the other.
There was a report last week that suggested union membership was at its lowest point since the 1930’s. I happen to know of a guy who works for Ford and still can’t wait for his afternoon nap every day, for he considers it a perk. The Clintons and the Obamas suggest this is normal. It is the sliding scale of moral relativism. It is the reward for underachieving. It is the insanity today that so many people have been convinced is normal that there no longer are standards to shame abusers who would have at one time been considered the scourge of society.
The Clintons might as well be creations of Lewis Carroll and the Obama’s their students:
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxsome foe he sought—-
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.
Welcome to today’s America.
