We’re pleased to see movement in this direction from Jindal. We are even more pleased to see that the fight against crony capitalism is becoming a vital issue which candidates feel they must address in the upcoming 2016 election.
Well this is pretty interesting. I think most of us who are paying attention have lost a lot of faith in cash over the past few years, but it sure is something when the head of the Federal Reserve admits on camera that the dollar isn’t a “convenient” store of value.
Of course it is.
Please please please tell me how the below action is constitutional.
We are citizens. The government needs probable cause and then a warrant to go through our stuff and even then it is to be limited. That is the LAW. Yet law enforcement wants this cyber dragnet.
I’m not a fan of Charlie Munger, Warren Buffett’s right hand man. I haven’t been a fan for a long time but this statement back in 2012 really annoyed me.
Such arrogance. I’m sorry Mr. Munger but not all of us get to drink from the Fed’s fire hose of easy money. For many of us gold is a last resort. Not an investment per se, but a hedge against guys like you. Of course you know that and that’s why you said what you said.
As a navy brat I moved around a lot. Sometimes we moved across oceans. Millions of other people have done the same thing. Most of us did not get a quarter of a million dollars to relocate however.
This is a pretty interesting list. I particularly like the following;
7. Payments to dead federal workers cost more than NASA’s mission to Pluto
Columbia it appears is the place to be if one wants to party hardcore on the US taxpayer dime. Forget Cancun kids. Medellin is where things are really going down.
Hey, when in Columbia…But one shouldn’t be doing it with taxpayer money. Oh, wait, in the case of the DEA parties it was the drug cartels who paid for everything. So I guess that’s cool.
Ah yes, a crony dispatch from my home state, the Commonwealth of Virginia. We used to be relatively clean (or particularly good at keeping things quiet). Now the former governor is in prison and the current governor, Clinton crony and crony capitalist extraordinaire Terry McAuliffe is defending his “little” piece of the great taxpayer financed “green” stimulus rush of the early Obama years. Seems that Homeland Security may have thrown some favors the governor’s way. According to the report things look legal, but most crony capitalism is.
Goldman Sachs is a crony capitalist organization. That can be said with certainty.
Let’s just say that there is a reason why some people think that they are “taxed enough already.”
Now who isn’t paying their “fair share” of taxes?
