    Douche Bank proposes wealth tax in wake of failed QE experiment

    Douche Bank:It is becoming increasingly clear to us that the level of yields at which credit expansion in Europe and Japan will pick up in earnest is probably negative, and substantially so. Therefore, the ECB and BoJ should move more strongly toward penalizing savings via negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes.In this time of extreme and despotic central bank policy, astute readers may note that gold buried in the backyard or held in Singapore safe deposit is immune to both negative interest rates and wealth taxes.

Repent and discard the evil, rapacious ways of the past or face the desert hell of Global Warming Climate Change Species Extinction whatever we can throw at you to show you images of damnation created by the encroachment of Western Man onto the primitive Eden of nature.I went to see the Jungle Book with a young Disney shareholder and quite enjoyed it.  I don't think you have to be a leftist or anti-capitalist to be concerned with man's impact on natural ecosystems.  The lore of elephants as creator-gods was similar to cultural beliefs of[...]

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

            (My new American Thinker post)    For the record, I am still hoping that we can nominate someone other than Trump.  I am still amazed that the GOP is about to nominate a candidate who blasted Governor Walker of Wisconsin for not raising taxes or who agrees with Michael Moore that Bush lied about Iraqi WMDs.  I also dont care for men who never served in the military giving opinions about who is or isnt a war hero.    But here we are and Mr. Trump has an excellent change of being the nominee.       And he is getting a lot of help from los anti-Trumpistas or hispanos in California who never pass a chance to make total fool of themselves.  [...]

      St. George was a #Syrian "immigrant", the patron of #England, who's cross is on the British flag. #Immigration is what makes Britain Great.  Fr. Marc Lyden-Smith (frlydensmith) April 23, 2016  This makes sense only when you can't differentiate between Catholicism and Islam. St. George, were he alive today, would remind you that he was a Christian and that means something. Or at least it did. What means something now are no longer ideas, philosophies, behaviors or faiths, but a squishy commonality between all humans. Thus you end up with St.[...]

    Over at the Alternative Right blog, Matthew Heimbach makes the case for flying the Confederate battle flag.  He is unapologetic about the inherent racism in the symbol and I applaud his honesty.  He also deplores the greed and lack of humanity that led to the importation of slaves from Africa, to be fair. The crux of his argument follows:This flag has become a symbol of the Confederate soldier, but also White resistance to federal tyranny and forced multiculturalism. The men who fought under it rejected the idea of multiculturalism and an empire to rule over them, instead supporting a movement that would allow them self determination. States Rights is a part of this ideology, but it must be understood within the[...]

      In a future post, I will describe a notion of national identity dependent upon cultural antecedents.  However, to do so I need to define a difference between universal and national rights.  In a critique of the alt-right, Cathy Young quotes Steve Pinker on the subject of political equality:    Political equality is a commitment to universal human rights, and to policies that treat people as individuals rather than as representatives of groups; it is not an empirical claim that people are indistinguishable. Many commentators seem unwilling to grasp these points.  However, if we are going to discuss the preservation of a national culture as a part of national preservation itself, I think we need[...]

    Donald Trump is factually challenged. I guess that's a nice way to speak about his colossal ignorance on so many subjects. For example.On The O'Reilly factor tonight, Donald Trump said of Afghanistan: "That's one place frankly instead of going to Iraq we should have probably gone there first". Except, we did. We invaded Afghanistan in October of 2001, less than one month after the 9-11 attack. The invasion of Iraq was March 20, 2003. Is it the word "first" that's giving you trouble, Donnie? Or have you just not been paying attention to anything that doesn't personally line your pockets?He was still nattering on with O'Reilly about how we should have and still might seize Iraqi oil and keep it for the US, when I tuned[...]

(Click HERE during showtimes, or after for the podcast).The topic will be Election 2016. To say that it has been a thrilling ride would be an understatement. The Cruz/Trump split decision on Super Saturday certainly has made the race for the nomination competitive.However, the Democratic Party's race has been no less interesting.The use of coin-flips and Super-Delegates may have helped propel Clinton to the inevitable spot. Threats and warnings by party insiders have been used against Sanders supporters to keep the troops in-line.However,[...]

    While watching Ted Cruz doing a presser in Arizona at the border of the United States and Mexico, I just shook my head. That is my current reaction to anyone or anything mentioning the border. When two former Mexican presidents thought they would share their foul mouthed expression over Mexico paying for a wall I laughed. Dolia Estevez wrote about the most corrupt people in Mexico and you bet politicians were named, so much for being the beacon of light and truth that they believe they are when speaking of public policies.I think I have finally come up with the best idea for the border wall. Well I dont want to steal credit for the idea, my mother in law Lillian actually thought of this, and its a brilliant. What makes it[...]

    A Kinder and Nicer NFL?Are any of you buying the new crisis management public relations campaign by the NFL, Together We Make Football? The NFL has been pushing commercials that make them look like AT&T or Hallmark. Problem is, I dont think many are falling for the new kinder and gentler NFL. The whole reason they have to clean up their act is that there have been so many bad actors in NFL with behavior stretching from bad to criminal that they had no choice but to look like they cared. And rather than really take a look at the behavior and get rid of bad players, they have them do the classic mea culpa like Ray Rice after he beat his fiance unconscious, they go away for a little while either by due process or the NFL[...]

        Once again Americans are facing questions about the definition of a Natural Born Citizen (NBC).This is the simple and indisputable definition: Two citizens who have a child, naturally create a new citizen. This is a Natural Born Citizen.There is absolutely no expert either legal or historical who will argue to the contrary. They may argue to include additional citizens, but this is the core of the definition.Two people who have a child in a location, have a citizen who is native to that land. This is a Native Born Citizen. Thus, terms like "Native American" which imply a location and not an allegiance to a country.A person can be both Natural Born and Native Born, or in the United States we also have Naturalized[...]

                    Do you remember the headlines when Obama apparently declared America a Muslim country on French television?    Taken from an Islamic perspective this statement is dangerous. It sounds as if the President of the United States sees America is a Muslim nation. When you consider translations, this may presented to the masses as exactly that, American President Hussein (an exclusively Islamic name)  Obama declares America to be Islamic. Thus America would be "al-Islam", or territory which may never be ceded to non-Muslims.Semantics, right? Over-reaction, right?Except, this is a long standing meme from not only the President, but also his staffers.   [...]

        Theres no denying that over the last few decades most all on-field rules changes made by the NFL have been exercises in increasing offense and scoring. This has created an arms race in a sense where the pendulum swings back and forth between the NFL offenses and NFL defenses whereby the offenses get aided by rules changes and the defenses counter with a combination of innovative schemes and superior athletes. To wit, for years, its been conventional wisdom that the best athletes in the world were in the NBA. Now days, we would add NFL defensive backs and possibly outside linebackers/rush ends into that mix (you dont think dudes like Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and J.J. Watt can ball a little?).But[...]

One of diversity, youth, vigor, and which challenges the status quo; the other of tired old ideas and of old white guys and one old gal.In a world turned upside down moment, we see the two political parties flip roles, each become the other's stereotype.The Republicans this year have become the party of diversity; running a host of candidates who include two Hispanics, an African-American, an Asian, and a woman. The Democrats, the Party of Diversity, are running five old, white men and an old (and very entitled) white woman.The average age of the 15 Republican candidates (Rick Perry dropped out today)[...]

    It seems a long time since the attacks on 9/11/2001; and it seems like yesterday. Thats a trick your mind plays on you with traumatic memories: putting a healing distance between then and now, all the while indelibly imprinting the memory so it always seems fresh; easily recalled as clearly today as when it occurred.In 2001 I was living in Michigan, a business man who worked out of his home office. That morning, I got my coffee and walked down to my office. It was just a few minutes before 9am on a crystal clear autumn morning. My office had a large window, and as I sipped my coffee I looked out at squirrels playing on my lawn.As always, I turned on my computer. Back then, Yahoo was my Homepage. As it booted-up, I glanced[...]
