Didja Get Yer Check Yet? . . . . . No, Me Either

May 25, 2015

Hey I’m sure the check is in the mail. Five BIG banks, you know those “too big to fail” type, were recently fined by the government regulators & the unJustice Dept. for fraud & rigging in the foreign exchange market (FOREX).

JPMorgan Chase, Barclays, Citigroup and Royal Bank of Scotland in cahoots with USB plead guilty to conspiring to manipulate the price of U.S. currency and euros and manipulating the Libor rate banks.Go to jail

But this is how it works:  Rig the rates, manipulate the currency, screw the public, get caught admit to wrongdoing, pay the fine and keep on going. Notice nobody ever goes to jail and the government never puts anyone on trial (they don’t want their own participation uncovered). The fines seem big, but not compared to how much money they make on their various schemes. It’s just the cost of doing business. And here’s a question for you. What does the government do with that money they collect in fines?

According to a Washington Post article, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said the banks had engaged in “brazenly illegal behavior . . . on a near-daily basis.” The scale of the price-fixing scandal is hard to grasp, yet it touched, imperceptibly, almost every company and individual in the financial markets. Lynch said the government “intends to vigorously prosecute all those who tilt the economic system in their favor [and] who subvert our marketplaces.”

Did you get your check yet? Me either!

Government in bed with the big banks is toxic for you and me.

Help pass liberty on to the next generation.

Beware of The Government Doing ANYTHING For Our Benefit or Welfare Because They Are More Often Stifling Competition at the Behest of Crony Capitalists

May 21, 2015

People this is disgraceful! Hat-tip Liberty Pen. Just remember whenever the government wants us to believe they’re doing something

 for our benefit you have to look behind the curtain. They are usually taking hand-outs from big corporations or special interests to line their own pockets while reducing competition for those favored interests ~all to the detriment of consumers.

Case in point. Big tobacco and loads of lobbyists for tobacco companies pair up with government who always claim they are doing it for our health, to get an unfair advantage over competitors or new market entrants. Politicians are only to happy to take their money all the while appearing to be watching out for our greater good. Bull-crap.

Help pass liberty on to the next generation.

He Hated His Old Name . . . . 5-Year Old Begins the Transgender Journey

May 8, 2015

Mia is now Jacob and is transgendering with the help and support of his/her parents.

“We cut his hair, changed his name, sent him to a new school so he could start fresh. That’s all we had to do.”

Pediatrician Michelle Forcier, NBC New’s chosen expert for their story has special interest in treating “sexual minority” children and promotes early puberty interventions for children who want to be the opposite gender. She feels the biggest harm for parents is to do nothing. According to a 2011 survey, transgender people suffer a greater risk of anxiety & depression and 41% of transgender people have attempted suicide.

What has changed in our world that our nightly news programs are pushing this phenomenon? I know we’re in a time as reported on Newsbusters.org where going back to school now includes not only new classmates, new subjects, books and new gender but also a court-invented right to use the boys or girls room depending on how you “identify”. I guess the schools will muddle on like this until someone is raped or molested by one maybe not identifying as sexual deviant when choosing which bathroom to use.

Of course the rest of us will have no say in any of this because the media (and the LBGT Mafia) always shut down dissent when they find a pet cause. This is the modern family and the alphabet news media will happily play the cheerleaders trying to normalize what may affect only a very small minority of people. It will be the next civil rights cause and anyone with a different opinion will be a hater. The suicide thing bothers me. Clearly these are conflicted individuals. Seeing Bruce Jenner transform tells me this is not something he was willing to live with even at his senior citizen age. What’s the answer? Who knows, but a civil right? I just don’t know.

BTW, same-sex parenting will be the next civil rights cause. Mark my words.

Cash No Good At Chase Bank As We Head to a Cash-less Society Paving the Way to a Financial Transactions Tax

April 27, 2015

All currency will one day be digital. Ones and zeros in the cloud. It could take us back to bartering or it could take us to a place where cash is no good, in fact outlawed and so every single financial transaction you engage in (mortgage payment, car loan, paying your bills online or with your smartphone, gas purchases, credit & debit card use) ~everything is digital and therefore easily taxable.

According to ZeroHedge.com Chase, the country’s largest bank has enacted a policy restricting the use of cash in selected markets; bans cash payments for credit cards, mortgages, and auto loans; and disallows the storage of “any cash or coins” in safe deposit boxes. And since banks now consider the contents of safety deposit boxes unsecured collateral, if you put cash or coins in SDBs they can/will legally confiscate it. This legalized robbery is embraced by the New World Order.

What’s wrong with cash? Well it’s hard to track. Banning cash will make it harder for criminals and terrorists to carry out their nefarious deeds, but really it’s us they want to keep track of. If there’s a receipt for everything you do, there’s no doubt about what you are doing. It’s another way for big government to have more control over us and extract more of our hard head earned money.

The other thing is as banks go more and more to negative interest rates fewer people will keep their money in banks. If they can’t charge you to keep your money in the bank and you go back to the mattress, well they’ll just outlaw cash. Then they’ll extract their pound of flesh in transaction fees. And if there’s no cash in banks there cannot be a bank run like in the 1930s and there cannot be back robberies.

And what happens when there’s an unexpected (or planned) electromagnetic pulse or a solar flare wiping out all things digital? Well, then we’re all equal. No more inequality!

Apparently Lib-tards & Federal Workers Don’t Feel Compelled to Pay Their Taxes

April 23, 2015

If you’re having trouble meeting your “April” obligations it helps to be a big lib and work for MSNBC. Working for the federal government seems to work too. As recently as March 24th of this year, PBS Newshour reported that Federal workers and retirees owed more than $3.5 billion in unpaid taxes last year, a $200 million increase over the previous year, the IRS said Tuesday.

And National Review has disclosed that a fourth host, co-host or employee at MSNBC has come up short when it comes to doing what we all hate to do but somehow manage to take care of ~paying our taxes. Touré Neblett (never heard of him, but then who watches MSLSD, as Mark Levin calls it), co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, owes more than $59,000 in taxes.

Melissa Harris-Perry, who hosts the show by the same name, and her husband, James Perry, owe around $70,000 in delinquent taxes, and of course Al Sharpton’s tax woes continue, with him owing approximately $4.5 Million.

Former host Joy Ann Reid is a light-weight owing a mere $4,948 to the State of New York.

Oh, but they’re always quick to criticize Republicans who are “all afraid to vote for a modest tax increase of people who can totally afford it.” Harris-Perry has opined that,

“We actually do better as a country when we spread the wealth around.”
But I say, no our country would do better if a few more libs and federal employees would pay their damn taxes! What’s with the special treatment and lack of enforcement for federal workers and MSNBC people?
And BTW, I hope you haven’t tried to call the IRS this year for tax advise because as payback for all the heat they’ve taken for targeting conservative and religious groups the IRS has hung up on millions of callers during this tax filing season.

And Then She Became The Senator From New York

If you are already sick of the 2016 presidential campaign I recommend this video posted by Steven Crowder for comic relief.

Diversity = Ignorance & Stupidity; It Sure Seems So

April 18, 2015

#Diversity means everything that follows will not make any sense. If this doesn’t change we could be in real trouble. I could give you any number of examples like the transgender ‘Bathroom Bill’ issue, or that self-esteem for our kids is so important that young people no longer know how to handle defeat. There are no losers, everybody wins! But right now I’m talking about the ignorant people who would vote for Hillary simply because of her genitalia.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Help pass liberty on to the next generation.
