Just for some fun in the nastiness of this political season!!!



DONALD AND HILLARY GO INTO A BAKERY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.
AS SOON AS THEY ENTER THE BAKERY, HILLARY STEALS 3 PASTRIES
AND PUTS THEM IN HER POCKET.

SHE TURNS TO DONALD AND SAYS, "SEE HOW CLEVER I AM? THE
OWNER DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING AND I DON'T EVEN NEED TO LIE!
I WILL DEFINITELY WIN THE ELECTION."

DONALD SAYS TO HILLARY, "THAT'S THE TYPICAL DISHONESTY YOU
HAVE DISPLAYED THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE LIFE...TRICKERY AND
DECEIT. I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU AN HONEST WAY TO GET THE
SAME RESULTS."

DONALD GOES TO THE BAKERY OWNER AND SAYS, "GIVE ME A PASTRY
AND I WILL SHOW YOU A MAGIC TRICK."

INTRIGUED, THE OWNER ACCEPTS AND GIVES HIM A PASTRY. TRUMP
SWALLOWS IT AND ASKS FOR ANOTHER ONE. THE OWNER GIVE HIM
ANOTHER ONE. THEN DONALD ASKS FOR A THIRD PASTRY AND
EATS THAT, TOO.

THE OWNER IS STARTING TO WONDER WHERE THE MAGIC TRICK IS
AND ASKED, "WHAT DID YOU DO WITH THE PASTRIES?"

TRUMP REPLIES, "LOOK IN HILLARY'S POCKET.

A question for liberals

Obama's stimulus act in 2009 provided for over $96 billion for schools and yearly we spend over $570 billion for education.

The stimulus act also provided $91 billion for roads and bridge repairs and we collect over $100 billion annual for the same purpose.

Now Hillary wants massive new expenditures for both categories!

We already spend more per pupil than any other country in the world and our road use taxes if it were a GDP would make those taxes the 60th largest GDP in the world.

Do you really think that we are taxed too little?

The Leviathan

August 16, 2016
The Leviathan
“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? . . . None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?” (Job 41:1, 10)

Leviathan was a large and fierce marine animal and may be the source for the dragon stories. God uses a whole chapter to describe this creature! It had limbs, power, and graceful proportions. It also had teeth in the “doors of his face” that were “terrible round about.” The leviathan had scales fitted so close together “that no air can come between them.”

We might compare the leviathan to an ichthyosaur or a mosasaur, or maybe a pliosaur. It is also possible that this enormous animal could have been a Spinosaurus. But when God speaks of “neesings” that cause “sparks of fire leap out,” with smoke coming out of its nose like “a seething pot or caldron,” we get the impression that this creature was something very unusual!

There are, of course, many legends and stories about fire-breathing dragons of the sea and land—all of which contain references to fire that comes from the mouth or nostrils of these ancient animals. Whatever this creature may have been, God Himself uses it as an example of a real animal that Job would have known either from his own personal experience or from current accounts of active commerce that plied the waters of the ancient world.

It is interesting to note that Job understood the need to learn that “the beasts . . . and the fowls of the air . . . and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?” (Job 12-9). Perhaps God wanted him to understand something of His implacable justice and punishment. HMM III

I find the dilemma the democrats in so deliciously ironic!

Let me state for the umpteenth time- I do not support Trump!

But Trump wants to stop any immigrant who comes from areas that hate women, American law, the constitution and the LGBT community!

Hillary wants to more than double the amount of immigrants who believe women should wear Burkhas, believe in honor killings, wish to kill the LGBT community, believe Sharia should be the law of America! And wish to kill and enslave all non Muslims in accord with the will of Allah as told by the Quran and the Hadith! Not only that- she wants the women and LGBT community to support them on welfare with their taxes!

It definitely will be interesting when the lame stream media cannot hide this dichotomy about HIllary any longer!

Corrupt and Unsustainable: The Feds Waterloo Moment

Bill Bonner

Corrupt and Unsustainable

James has been a big help.

Trying to get him to sleep at night, we have been telling him fantastic and unbelievable bedtime stories – full of grotesque monsters… evil maniacs… and events that couldn’t possibly be true.

Yes, we have been explaining our modern money system… and coming to understand it better ourselves.

The boy, just 14 months old, has probably missed some of the subtle points. But we feel confident that he got the gist of it. He knows the system is corrupt and unsustainable. He probably wonders how it will end; so do we.

Like a child that has climbed a ladder when no one was looking, U.S. stocks are near an all-time high. Soon, its

That’s when Fed chairman Alan Greenspan began the foolish and fatal policy of protecting investors from their own mistakes.

When the Dow collapsed by 22% on “Black Monday,” Greenspan reacted by lowering rates and telling the press that he was committed to stabilizing stocks.

Since then, every attempt to correct the stock market or the debt market has been met by the feds like the French Imperial Guard charging the British lines at Waterloo. Hopeless and futile, it nevertheless confused the situation and postponed the inevitable collapse.

And now, almost 30 years later, there is no turning back. No point in reconsidering. It’s too late for further reflection. The Fed must draw up its cannon, unsheathe its sabers, and ride to the sound of the guns. Otherwise,
parents will startle awake… and try to get it down without injury.

For the last five straight quarters, U.S. corporate earnings have fallen, while stocks have gone up. This divergence is not likely to last much longer.

Companies only have value because they earn a profit; take that away, and there is no point in owning them.

And price-to-earnings ratios – which measure the multiple that investors are willing to pay for each dollar of earnings – are already far above their long-term averages. (See today’s Market Insight below for more.)

Either companies will find ways to boost profits… or stock prices must fall.

Which one will it be?

You know what we think. We don’t like to be “negative,” but our guess is that U.S. corporations will not find a major new source of profits anytime soon.

What are they going to do?

Cut costs further… after eight years of trimming expenses to protect the bottom line?

Refinance loans at lower interest rates… after almost doubling corporate debt over the last eight years?

Increase sales… to whom?

The most likely outcome is that stocks will decline. That is how the next chapter will begin.

No Turning Back

A bear market should be of no particular concern to the authorities.

After all, since when was the Fed in charge of making sure that the rich get richer?

Ah… since about 1987!


the battle will be lost.

Falling stock prices – when they come – will first be greeted by calm announcements from the Fed.

“We are keeping a close eye on the situation,” it will say.

“Our data show nothing to worry about,” and so forth.

But investors will worry. They will retreat with more of their money. Prices will fall further… and the Fed will be forced to bring out its heavy artillery.

“New initiatives,” will be widely discussed. Incredible new weapons will be unveiled.

But that is still in the future… perhaps far in the future.

Another Major Warning Sign for Stocks

From Bill Bonner:

Party Like It’s 1999

Not since 1999 did all three major U.S. stock market indexes – the Dow, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq – hit record levels, as they did yesterday.

Of course, 1999 proved to be the worst time to buy stocks in 30 years. After a few more months of lollygagging around, the Nasdaq crashed and the Dow and the S&P 500 sold off hard.

Nasdaq investors didn’t get back to breakeven for another 15 years.

Just sayin’…

By our rough calculations, the stock market is about twice as high as it “ought” to be.

We put “ought” in quotations as a nod to readers who will hit the reply button mere seconds after reading it.

Of course, we have no idea where the stock market ought to be. Or where it will be. We only know where it has been. And it has been at these levels only rarely.

Major market movements take time. It takes many years to form a proper bubble… and many years more to forget it.

Take Nobel prize winner Robert Shiller’s CAPE ratio – a valuation measure designed to smooth out the effects of yearly swings in corporate earnings.

By this measure, the S&P 500 has only been more expensive in 2007, 1999, and 1929.

Each time, prices reached a peak. And investors celebrated with a big party. Then they suffered a hangover for years later.

After 1929, for example, investors waited until 1953 to recover.


Bourbon and Branch Water

Lately, the recovery times have been foreshortened.

Each time the market turned down, the feds arrived on the scene in minutes, with aspirin and a Bloody Mary. Then it was vodka tonics.

Months after the dot-com plunge in 2000, stocks (outside of the flaky, tech-heavy Nasdaq) rebounded. Same thing in 2009.

And now… bourbon and branch water in hand… investors celebrate new record highs, confident that no matter how great the hangover, the quacks at the Fed will have a remedy.

But watch out. By our calculations, stocks are selling for nearly twice as much as they “ought” to.

Come the next big plunge, we could see prices sawed in half… with no recovery until 2036.

Hey leftist-- do you really think Hilklary will repeal citizens United?

By JOHN CARNEY and ANUPREETA DAS
July 29, 2016

Hedge funds are playing a far bigger role in 2016 than in past elections—and Hillary Clinton has been the single biggest beneficiary.

Owners and employees of hedge funds have made $122.7 million in campaign contributions this election cycle, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics—more than twice what they gave in the entire 2012 cycle and nearly 14% of total money donated from all sources so far.

The lines around what constitutes a hedge fund aren’t always clear in the data, or in the financial industry. But the numbers are stark. OpenSecrets.org, the center’s website, says employees or owners of hedge funds and private equity firms contributed $27.6 million to pro-Clinton groups or her campaign, according to federal data released in July. Counting contributions from similar private investment funds, the data show seven financial firms alone have generated nearly $48.5 million for groups working on Mrs. Clinton’s behalf.

The total for Donald Trump: About $19,000.

All that talk about big money buying elections. Just another smoke screen. It seemss that the Democrat Party has become the party of big business!

Founders believed in the right to keep arms with or without a militia.
