Social Security requires a bailout that’s greater than the 2008 emergency bank bailout

Simon Black, the Sovereign Man: “A few weeks ago the Board of Trustees of Social Security sent a formal letter to the United States Senate and House of Representatives to issue a dire warning: Social Security is running out of money.
Given that tens of millions of Americans depend on this public pension program as their sole source of retirement income, you’d think this would have been front page news…

Monetary Deflation: Just another definition gone awry

When we have an over-inflated tire, we know that over-inflation will cause a Blowout, while deflation results in a flat tire – those are clear and simple definitions which don’t require a genius to understand. Driving on a flat tire will destroy the tire and the rim will soon follow. One would think that even a bureaucrat would grasp that, but we can only imagine that’s “too simple”.

INFLATION ABOUT TO EXPLODE HIGHER

From the Burning Platform: We all know the BLS artificially suppresses the CPI through bullshit substitution adjustments, quality adjustments, and various other incomprehensible hedonic adjustments made by government apparatchiks at the behest of their politician bosses. Some obscure theoretical academic calculation called owners equivalent rent accounts for almost a quarter of the CPI weighting.

It is All Government’s Fault

By Walter E. Block  July 4, 2016, article at  LewRockwell.com It is all the government’s fault. It is always the government’s fault. Pretty much every bad thing is the government’s fault. The government mulcts almost half of the GDP if we count federal, state, county, and city taxes and fees. A significant proportion of these […]

Who, Clinton, Trump? It Doesn’t Matter!

I am trying to subscribe to Bob Livingston’s posts and thoughts. Every day I’ve been wading thru his Personal Liberty Digest, but am finding that usually it’s Bob Livingston who has it right; at the PLB, not so much. But at his newsletter, if you don’t buy something, seems one can’t subscribe. That just doesn’t fit my old-man circumstances!

Below is the current post at BobLivingston.com

I’ve copied the post but cut the sales pitch – if you wish, you can go to his website.

John Whitehead: Freedom-Loving Candidates Need Not Apply

John Whitehead: Today’s presidential hopefuls must jump through a series of hoops aimed at selecting the candidates best suited to serve the interests of the American police state. Candidates who are anti-war, anti-militarization, anti-Big Money, pro-Constitution, pro-individual freedom and unabashed advocates for the citizenry need not apply.

Going Voluntary – Sovereignty

This should perhaps have been the first in this series, but too late now! We will be turning this from theory to reality. “Home” for us is Apache County, Arizona, one of the poorest and least populated counties in the USA, located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of over 6,000 feet. Our community is unincorporated, being in a rather remote location with a few thousand people scattered an area of perhaps 600 square miles. In talking with the people here, NOBODY wants this area to become part of some incorporated town (which would mean a GOVERNment)! Thus we seek to build a better community within a Voluntary system, in which all are Sovereign Individuals, in which each can fulfill his perceived needs and goals in concert with others who share those same. Neither GOVERNment nor Rulers are necessary to accomplish such goals; this is OUR Path to True Liberty!

Still Waiting…

Once again the Fed’s bite has failed to live up to its bark. Despite months of expectations that it would finally raise rates for the first time since 2006, the Fed continued to sit on its hands while pointing to some unspecified date in the future when all the economic and financial stars will align in a way that makes a 25 basis point increase appropriate. Am I the only one getting bored by the repetition? – Peter Schiff
