The Political-Financial Complex

Ike was right when he warned us about the danger of acquisition of power by the Military-Industrial Complex. Steve Keen, the Australian Economics Professor, is right when he warns us about the Political-Financial Complex...a term coined by him.A perfect example of the Political-Financial Complex is as follows.

Thanks for the Great Response...

This is Not Free Market Capitalism

This will be short. For decades, I've been an informal student of economic systems, and in particular, Free Market Capitalism. From all I've read and seen, there is no such thing in the world today. Perhaps in the days of Adam Smith (the 1700's) it existed, but no longer. Show More Summary

How to Prepare for the Coming Financial and Economic Crash

I've written a concise Guide (15 pages, large type) with the title above. [The Table of Contents is found below.] Sometimes I copy things I've written elsewhere and post them here. Unfortunately every time I do that, the copied piece does not paste correctly onto this venue. Show More Summary

Has the Crash Already Started?

Let me state up front, I'm not an economist or monetary theorist, or anything of that sort. I rely upon a wide variety of those people (their writings & interviews) for information; that variety stretches all across the political spectrum. Show More Summary

The Craziest 9-11 Conspiracy Theory...The One We Accepted

9-11 will be here shortly; perhaps we briefly should reflect upon it. I'm talking about the one that happened in the USA, not in Chile in 1973 (that one essentially was engineered by Henry Kissinger). I'm no expert in these matters,Show More Summary

BOYCOTT Mega Banks

Shortly after WW II, the Financial Sector made up about 3% of the U.S. economy. Today it's just under 10%, but accounts for more than 30% of all corporate profits in this country. In the past, we had Finance Capitalism in this Land (relative to the Financial Sector). Show More Summary

Oligarchs Are Trembling on Several Fronts

Open to anyone who knows how to do "library" research, public sources are revealing at a rapid rate how/why the Oligarchs (public & private) are getting extremely worried. I don't have the time or energy to delineate all their areas of concern, but here are a few.1. Show More Summary

What the Right and the Left Don't Seem to Understand

The Right Wing in American politics doesn't appear to understand that probably the majority of Americans are fed up to the gills with Corporatism, Financialization, and the de-industrialization of our country. In addition, we're tired of all the squabbling over divisive, hot-button, social issues. Show More Summary

Part II: "Fixing" Our Government [Redux]

I posted this (below) about four months ago. With a few very, very minor changes, I'm re-posting it now because I think it's important relative to the Kabuki Theater electioneering presently taking place. [Sorry, but the format didn't copy correctly, and I don't have time to fix it.] Below is my response to an email I received from some friends. Show More Summary

Quagmires and Plain Craziness, in the USA and Abroad

1. Our Gov't continues its two and a half decade war in Iraq. If I recall correctly, that war started in 1990. There were a few brief respites between then & now, but not many. [I count "sanctions" as acts of war... because History does as well.] Just prior to 1990, Saddam & our Gov't Oligarchs were best buddies. Show More Summary

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

The Kabuki Theater production of "The 2016 Election in The USA" is only a bit more than a year away. Attention actors: get your Kabuki masks or makeup early. The Kabuki-loving crowd in America promises to be a large one. Come one, come all!We Americans should be thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed that: 1. Show More Summary

The Coup in Greece & Why it's Important to You

The new government in Greece was blackmailed by Oligarchs. The Greek Gov't did not close the banks; it was the European Central Bank that did so. Imagine if, for example, the Fed Reserve here closed all banks in the USA. They would be...Show More Summary

KUDOS to Greece...Again

The Greeks did it again. They told the Oligarchs of the IMF, the European Bank (or whatever it's called), and the various other white-collar criminal frauds involved to stick it where the sun doesn't shine. Kudos! It's hardly a surprise---...Show More Summary

Small Business, Workers, Industry, and the Public Lose Again

It looks as though the Oligarchs Obama and McConnell are going to get their NAFTA-on-steroids-deal, otherwise known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Our House of Lords (i.e., the U.S. Senate) finally managed to ram through so-called Fast-Track Authority for our King. Show More Summary

Malcolm Nance Comments on the Iraq-ISIS Crisis

Who is Malcolm Nance? He's a retired combat veteran and U.S. Counter-Terrorism Officer who was in Iraq as far back as 1987. He's Arabic-speaking and a recognized expert on Jihadist tactics, the Iraq insurgency, and Al Qaida's worldwide...Show More Summary

The Last Bastion

The last bastion against an errant government (not counting armed revolt) is jury nullification. Very early in our country's history, the role of jury nullification as a defense against oppression by the State was unquestioned. It remained...Show More Summary

Here's How They Do It -OR- The Biggest Flaw in the Constitution

"They" are the Neoliberals who over decades and by sheer, disorganized, dumb luck have brought about a coup in our Government. For years I wondered how so many unconstitutional laws could come into being in this Land with barely a peep of protest from anyone. Show More Summary

José Castañeda for Libertarian Party of California Secretary

I've met José Castañeda several times, back when I was more active in libertarian circles. (Not so much since 2009.) José and I both reside in Los Angeles, so our paths crossed in local as well as state and national LP activism.JoséShow More Summary

Rand Paul: U.S. Won Iraq War

My enthusiasm for Ron Paul never extended to his son, Rand. While I was hoping that Senator Rand Paul might morph into a younger Ron, I never expected it. Ron enjoyed being Dr. No, a lone voice in the Congressional and establishment wilderness. Show More Summary
