658: “Fiscal Conservatives” Show Their True Colors with 4.1 Trillion Dollar Budget.

October 5th, 2017|

Darren did a lot of looking today, and the new Republican budget looks like it might be the biggest in history. I know there are minor differences between parties but if you had any doubt as to where Republican principles lie this vote should tell you everything you need to know. Republicans appeal to conservatives and when it's time to get your vote they talk a mean game about reducing taxes, deficits and spending but when the time comes to take action you see [...]

657: Dissecting the White Privilege of Americas Mass Shooters

October 4th, 2017|

If you can believe it, there are actual conversations going on in America today over the unfair portrayal of white mass shooters as "lone wolves." Now before you dismiss this as progressive nonsense, I think some things need discussing. For example, does the media treat whites who commit atrocities differently than Muslims? Are they more willing to forgo assumptions about the intentions of white offenders than that of blacks? Today I'm going to give you my thoughts and bring in a decent article from [...]

656: Gun Control, Tax Reform, and Tom Petty

October 3rd, 2017|

It's another dark day. Frontman for the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty has died at age 66. 66!! That's crazy! I have no idea if it was genetic or if he just burned the candle at both ends but he was an incredible talent, and it seems like he left this earth too early. We've got some additional information on the Vegas shooter. The motive is still elusive, but it appears he used a "Bump-Stock" to convert his semi-auto rifles into full-auto rifles. I'll explain what [...]

564: FED Admits QE Doesn’t Work!

September 21st, 2017|

Once again, if you just stick to the truth and be unapologetic eventually that truth will set you free. For years the FED has been talking about Quantitative Easing as the solution to our economic problems. "Prime the Pump!!!" they'd scream. "Don't worry; we know what we're doing." They do not. One of the Feds own economists has now admitted what many of us have known for so long. QE doesn't work. It creates bubbles, distorts asset prices and creates a general mess, but [...]

653: What Happens When the Fed Stops?

September 20th, 2017|

It would seem the Fed has been prepping the market for a big announcement. It's widely believed the Fed will announce once its intention to start shrinking it's balance sheet today. Some of that might be confusing so let me clarify... When the housing bubble burst, the Fed responded by creating trillions of dollars out of thin air. All that money has created bubbles in stocks, bonds, corporate debt, even art and real estate have been affected. So what happens to the economy when [...]

652: Check Your White Privilege

September 19th, 2017|

I had intended to talk about Facebook today, but I ran off in so many different directions that I never got around to it. Today we're going to talk about Trump's recent speech at the UN, Hillary's continuous campaign to blame everyone but herself for the election loss and we're going to chat about a San Diego professor who handed out extra credit to anyone who'd take a white privilege survey. Really good show today, Jason

651: This Time It’s Different…Really.

September 18th, 2017|

Great article out of Zero Hedge today covering the current pension crisis in America. If you've listened to this show for any length of time, you know the public pension system is wrecked. But this article really went into detail about how it all might shape out in the end. Let's just say it's not a rosy picture. Like Mauldin says, "There are no good choices anymore." I've got a lot of social stuff in the stack today. I want to talk a little [...]

650: A World on Fire

September 15th, 2017|

This morning there was an attack in London. If you're at all up to speed on current affairs, you know that already. North Korea also fired another missile over Japan. The question I want to discuss today is, "What the heck do we do about it?" Most people think we need to do "something." I'm not entirely convinced we do. Many wars could have been prevented by just not acting. On the flip side, a lot of wars ended up being worse because someone [...]

649: Taxes, Spending, and “Toxic Masculinity”

September 14th, 2017|

For the first time in more than a decade, the House managed to pass a spending bill before the end of a budget year. The way you should read that is, "It took more than a decade, but the House finally did their job." They've got plenty of money to spend. This year the government has taken in a record amount of money, besting the last record by a clean 8.4 billion. But that hasn't stopped the spending machine from finding new ways to [...]

648: Rising Inequality Presents Greatest Opportunity in History…for some.

September 5th, 2017|

The New York Times published a piece today on rising inequality and the difference in opportunity between low-income workers today and the ones of the 1980's. I read the article defensively at first. It is the New York Times after all. But after the first couple of pages, it was clear the author was correct in his assessment. If you choose to try and make it in America today using the same tactics your parents and grandparents used you're going to fail. The entire [...]
