Lions and Tigers and Bears and Donkeys

Liberals have no concept, nor do they care.

Liberals don’t care where the money comes from. Why should they care about spending that money?

Where does money come from?
Many believe it comes from the Federal Govt or Central Banks. While the argument can be made the Feds/Central bank are manufacturers of money, I don’t believe they create the wealth behind it. Since our economical implosion happened in 2008, our Federal Govt has been printing money in an effort to create short term wealth. 5 years later our domestic fiscal policy has gotten us nowhere because fiscal policy does not result in the expansion of [sustainable] wealth. I am in the camp that says don’t print wealth and let the pieces fall where they may. I believe a tough love fiscal policy would have paved the path toward a stronger, if not sooner recovery.

Who Killed The Kennedys?

I shouted out “Who killed the Kennedys?” Well after all It was you and me
— The Rolling Stones, Sympathy For The Devil

Hypocrite:
1. a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion
2. a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings

I would like to add a #3 which would be a celebrity who campaigns against guns while they profit from making movies that glorifies them. Check out the video at the end of the article.

Exodus

Our legislators are so smart here in Oregon. How smart are they? Well, for starters the previous democrat leadership managed to jack our taxes up so high that businesses and families are moving out of Oregon and re-planting themselves across the river in neighboring Washington.

The liberal leadership were told time and time again that if measure 66 & 67 (measures to tax businesses to the stratosphere and families earning over $250k) passes, these businesses and families would get the hell out of dodge.

And get the hell out they are.
In 2010 alone, approximately 15,000 families beat feet from one of the highest taxed states in the union (Oregon) to the lower priced and affordable Clark County Washington.

Rumor has it the not so top heavy liberals are caving toward repealling measures 66 and 67.

While they are at it, they should consider dropping the 11% income tax rate down a few notches.

Better late than never.

Unsustainable

Where do I start?

Let’s start with today’s May jobs report. Wow. Obama promised me Hope and Change. He promised you Hope and Change. He promised all of us Hope and Change.

If any of you hold any paper in the stock market, you sure did get some change. Probably about a 3-5 percent drop of your equity. I predict this is the beginning of a broader market slide. I’m bearish for the foreseeable future and won’t be at all surprised to see the dow bottom out at the 9200 level by November.

Keep Portland Weird

If you haven’t yet visited one of my newest links on the right hand side of this page, you gotta go over and pay a visit to Alligators In The Sewer.

They have a great write up on my home state’s largest town – Portland Oregon.

Here’s a quote about the weirdness of Portland:

Just a bunch of granola-crunching, Birkenstock-wearing libtards,” griped Sam Farston, a cattle rancher in Baker City

Since I started working in the Portland metro area a little over a year ago, I have to say yeah, Portland is weird. But it’s a quirky weirdness that keeps me coming back. Libtards and all!
