In fact, one CNN article stated that the markets "freaked [...]

I meant to post this two weeks ago, but life is too damn hectic. A few weeks back, I did a three-day promotion in connection with Bookbub.com. For the benefit of the book marketing wonks out there, here is my report. Diary of a Small Fish had received a lot of very good reviews in […]
“Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is on the way out the door, but the consequences of the bond bubble that he has helped to create will stay with us for a very, very long time. During Bernanke’s tenure, interest rates on U.S. Treasuries have fallen to record lows. This has enabled the U.S. government to […]
The “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill (S. 744) currently being debated by the Senate would squash the jobs prospects and wages of the American working class, crush our already-struggling middle class, increase inequality, and trap many of the immigrants themselves in a welfare state roach motel. Other than that, it is a great idea. […]

07/30/2011 The Debt Ceiling Debate is a perfect illustration of the failings of Socialism. They argue about buying the “Can’t Gets” with the “Don’t Haves”. No nation has ever borrowed it’s way to prosperity. Debt is transactional Death. They call it credit. They call it liquidity. What they don’t have is money. There has been no real money in U.S. circulation since 1972. The historical lifespan of any fiat currency is about 40 years. On the expectations of that average, the clock is ticking on the last days of the Federal Reserve note. They tell us not to worry. The debt will be rolled over into a new Ponzi scheme. The population will be coerced into participation. Socialism always enforces it’s fraud by acts of war. Be not deceived. The war is against you.
Now would be a good time to list the “Nevers” of Socialism.
1. Never has Socialism operated on it’s own dime. Socialism has always been a leech on the body of productive industrial nations.
2. Never has Socialism delivered the universal prosperity that it promises.
3. Socialism has always resorted to war and genocide. Those who refuse to surrender their wealth willingly, are exterminated. We see this in the United States in the 1860s, in the Soviet Union and China in the 20th century, and in the present day mercenary wars supporting the United Nations.
4. The semantics of Socialism and Capitalism expose the factions within Corporatism. Adherents of both philosophies are all thieves, using the force of government to rob their neighbors.
5. Socialism and Capitalism lose distinct definition in a fiat currency banking system. They both pursue the common objective of conquest in their struggle to dominate the corporate structure.
