A Question of Greed…

Since the rule of law is dead: GOP cuts funding to the SEC because of “budget deficits,” despite the fact money for the SEC does not come from the budget, but from regulatory charges paid by the brokerage firms the SEC investigates, thus saving the same companies/banks that fucked us into a  recession millions while also making it more financially difficult for the SEC to prosecute … Continue reading A Question of Greed…

The American Dream…

Wanna know why the Federal Reserve is bad for everyone? Well, everyone but that oh so fortunate top 1%… Enjoy! Yes, its thirty minutes long…but how many sitcoms have you watched in your life?

My State of the Union…

My fellow Americans… I come before you today to say that the era of rationality is dead. What do I mean? Simple… Being rational has led to hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes.
