I live in a small town in NC, let's call it Mulberry. We have a strange cast of small town characters, many with the same name as another fictional town. The difference is that instead of being proto-hippies, all the characters in my town are raving liber

Does it ever strike you that when life hands you lemons for Tom Collins mixers, one or two would be sufficient, as opposed to the entire friggin' orchard? Yesterday I received the entire East Coast Sam's' Club shipment, so until I whip up a municipal swimming pool or two of lemonade there will be a posting hiatus. I suspect that by early next week I can get rid of this load. Damn, if only Ted Kennedy were still alive, then all I'd need would be 263 gallons of gin. Continue reading

Being unemployed and middle -aged in modern America is rather like the aftermath of a ECW cage match between Real Life and The Economy versus you and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Bloody,beaten and barely able to stand, you can only scream " What kind of social contract was that? For the love of God man throw an elbow, pretend you're Nietzsche for second and grow a pair. How do you say "Pile-driver" in French?" Yet then in the depths of ones' depression and defeat comes a marketing idea so ruthless, cynical, and obviously inspired by Lucifer, that one may only question the... Continue reading

Tonight on Fox News' Special Report, "The Panel" discussed the financial overhaul bill passed today. Statements by A.B. Stoddard and Charles Krauthammer stood out in particular. Krauthammers' comment was tossed out a casual throw-away line,yet both deserve some further analysis. At the risk of belaboring the obvious, Stoddard's comment was only significant in illustrating the Pravda like nature of the MFM. She repeated the shallow talking point that "business is sitting on 1.8 trillion dollars". To be fair to Ms. Stoddard, Ben" Just shut up and fly the helicopter" Bernanke said the same thing the other day. Implied by each... Continue reading

Join with me for a moment in an intellectual exercise, which to reassure you will not involve any weight beyond 12 oz's. Let us suppose that by Deus ex machina or some more plebeian means the GOP assumes solid control of the House and at least enough of the Senate to allow for those commie Yankee bastards some defection of certain members. Will this new Republican majority result in the fate of the car chasing dog? Once they catch it, can they drive it? What exactly should be the Republican plan to flex their new-found political muscle? Lets' start with... Continue reading

Like many people today, I suffer from a certain malaise regarding the future of my country. After hearing J. Christian Adams on a Charlotte NC radio program today, that malaise became full out fear, like the kind you get from waking up in a strange place after too many tequila drinks. You knew that before you began you had a wallet, didn't have tranny spooning on you, and you would like to be shed of one while hopelessly desiring the other. No matter how you shake out on that, you're mighty scared. Mr.Adams happens to be the DOJ whistle-blower for... Continue reading

The greatest single problem facing America today is unemployment among middle-aged white American bloggers residing in small Southern towns. Although to be fair there is anecdotal evidence that the unemployment situation is widespread. If we look to history for answers, we find…well, a lot of dates and numbers that are absolutely no help. Turns out that Leftists revised the actual history even before the fish we wrapped it in began to smell bad. This is why we think of Franklin Roosevelt as the savior of the republic instead of some creepy guy who married his cousin and smoked cigarettes like... Continue reading

It's rare to find a truly good analysis of military small arms, more rare still to find one originating from within the military. I highly recommend this article to anyone interested in current military small arms and their applications. M-4...hazard,threat or Ratgun? Continue reading

My Italian friend Andy has invited me to post over at his website Border Gazette. I thought Andy had better judgment than that. This is exactly like giving a member of Congress your car keys, Visa card, and telling him where your wife’s panties are kept. Despite this, Andy did somehow manage to come up with two reasons for this horrible faux pas. Andy is somehow laboring under the impression that I know something about firearms. It is said that knowledge is currency, so in that case I’m suffering a liquidity crisis. Happily for Andy, I’m in tight with the... Continue reading

I promise this will be the last economic post for awhile. My next post will delve into something like the magical ability of Birkenstocks to make both men and women look gay or some other Lefty bashing subject. A quick spin arond the MFM reveals:Kooky Keynesian Kowboys reassuring us tax cattle with Melodic Fiscal Yodeling. Now all we have to do is just keep following the same old trail till we're nice and safe in those pens over there. Never mind those Smiling faces with knives. Despite what the drooling retards that comprise our current Democratic party overlords think, there... Continue reading

Now I know some of y'all are asking yourself..."How the hell did I wind up here?" This column is not for you, nor probably are any of my other columns. This column is dedicated to my fan, who at this point is probably thinking," For the love of God man, you are simply way too depressing". It's for this type of critical thinker that I pen todays column, with a solemn " You think it's easy to write after drinking this much" apology. It has been commented that I might be a bit too pessimistic about the economic circumstances of... Continue reading

Perhaps I was psychic with my last coulumn. More likely I ripped off someone else. At any rate, it appears that the Fed Chief is more than a little concerned with the plummeting money supply, and he knows just what to do about it. Read more here: EcoPolicyJournal Continue reading

Mark this day Oh good reader, for I am not only at a loss for answers, I don't even have a decent question beyond who hid the bottle-opener. What began as my concerns about deflation inspired the Jr Woodchuck Economist in me to explore the current state of M3. For those of you who are mercifully ignorant of what M3 is( or rather was), it is basically the amount of true liquidity in our monetary system. The Federal Government quit showing official M3 statistics in 2006. If you're wondering about" Liquidity" in this case,it essentially boils down to ; "What... Continue reading

All the buzz today is about Gen. McChrystal being relieved by President Barrack Hussein Obama. Will someone please tell me at what point I entered the "Twilight Zone"? Okay, I understand my life is a '50's TV series, but for the love of God, who changed the channel? In truth, I would find this entire farce entertaining, if not for the fact that good men and women are actually dying in the process.This is while our cartoon President plays the Red Queen and says "off with someone's head, according to our recent focus group and my sycophants". I suppose this... Continue reading

There is no better place to be hanging out after a brutally hot softball tournament than the cool, dark confines of the Rightwing Deathsquad Softball League lodge. I was debating whether to put the contents of an ice cold Lonestar on the inside of overheated self or down my shorts. Goob strolled over to interrupt my deliberations. “Whatcha pondering on?” He asked in his simple good-natured way. I replied that I’m thinking about an interesting theory I read on some hot Conservative chicks website. The idea was novel to me, yet I couldn’t help but notice how much another long...

Today this piece of sh..... louse on the body politic had the nerve to say that the President of BP was not woking to solve the problem, merely" kicking the can down the road". He further said that this is intolerable and "irresponsible". Has he even been conscious for all of the financial mischief he and his ilk have foisted on our future generations? As usual, Dilbert goes straight to the heart of the matter. Dogbert Does Congressional Hearing Continue reading

In case you may have missed it, you absolutely need to check out this blog. It is essentially an edited reprint of Wall Street Journal articles from after the Stock Market Crash of 1929. If you can read these and: A) Not see the uncanny parallels B) Sleep soundly Then either your mom shouldn't have drank so heavily during her pregnancy or you are a South Carolina Democrat. You NEED to go here Old WSJ You should note todays WSJ has an article about the second straight monthly decline in CPI. I'd link it, but the WSJ for some reason... Continue reading

As we discussed previously, holding hard money in the form of coins is a good thing in case the economy goes down faster than a truck stop hooker.That said, at the point we left off, you were holding a bunch of 1oz gold coins, because G Gordon Liddy told you to. I mean, if you can't trust someone who screwed up a burglary, who can you trust? Let's assume for the sake of illustration that you are virtually loaded with gold coins of all sizes when the bottom drops out. Continuing down this rabbit hole let's say that at some...

There seems to be a tendency, especially among my Conservative brethren, to joyfully wander the philosophical fields of survivalist articles without their keepers handy and their helmets on. Now, as they say in the Obama-nation "Make no mistake", I love me some survivalist articles too.It's just that one has to remember that the folks writing those articles are held to same strict blogger/journalistic standards as your humble host. Basically you can't have had a head trauma so severe that everything looks like pictures of the Matrix. In that vein, I'm reluctant to add to the growing pile, but since when... Continue reading

In a world that seems to have been turned on it's head, it's refreshing to see someone come along to restore ones faith in ones beliefs. That man is Alvin Greene, the South Carolina Democratic Party candidate for the United States Senate. Of course the belief that he restores is my view that the mothers of current Democratic party voters thought Prestone made the perfect margarita mixer. Here is link to his interview with "he that shall remain nameless" on the Communist Channel. A good guy links to MsNBC My intial reaction to this interview was that the SC Democratic...

During the time I’ve been unemployed, I’ve been able to spend a good bit more time down at the RightWing DeathSquad Softball League lodge. I do realize that for regular readers this seems hardly possible, but bear with me. At any rate, yesterday Ernest T came in and inquired about my employment prospects. “Y’all got a job yet? He asked. Then he followed with “ Whatcha doin’ for money?” I replied that I was doing the modern equivalent of living off the kindness of strangers, which is to say I’m on unemployment. I added that everything your mama had ever... Continue reading
