Make Your Money More Valuable

The latest labor department statistics say that 6.3 million Americans have been unemployed for six months or longer, which is the largest number of unemployed workers since the government began keeping track in 1948. That number is more than double the amount of workers that were unemployed back in the early 1980’s, which is the […]

Voting for Oblivion

My dear friend, welcome back. Let’s kick off with two quotes of past and present to set the scene for this week’s cheery little ode: “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” – Winston Churchill. “Within 12 years… the largest item in the federal budget will be interest […]

Why Mine Was Cheaper

I have the memory of a gold fish. My mother always used to tell me that whenever she said something to me it would go in one ear and out the other.

If you said your daily Starbucks run, then stop reading and go stick your head in the sand for another 5 years. I can’t deal […]

The Ugly Black Swans

Wait! Before you groan at the thought of hearing yet another rant and reckoning from that pessimistic (realistic) pundit, Mark Patricks, this week is a little different… This week I’m being somewhat contrarian on my contrarian stance. Yes, I was a little confused too when I dreamt this up, but bear with me as I […]
