A Thanks to the Jews

Over the past several years I've suffered from unemployment and underemployment.  I have finally started full time employment.  I have come to realize that there are many people in this country in deep trouble, impaled by a failing economy.  I've made my views well known here on WB. This experience has certainly changed the way I look at the world and I know longer view the US in a positive light. And while hopefully with the grace of God my fortunes will begin to change I realize all of the human carnage that continues.  I wish I could see a solution but for now I don't.  Most Americans (and Europeans) have their head so far up the ass of the elitist class that is screwing them they can't see the poop that is being laid upon them.   Onto something even more important.  I've seen the way Jews h…

Going to the Movies.

Over the last week or so we have seen an Opera and two movies. We plan to see another film tomorrow. It is a good way to spend surplus time. Some people tell me they are always short of time. That is admirable. Wasn’t there a play  written about a man that had lost his job …

What the Fu*k is going on in this World?

Dark times unfortunately seem to be coming these days. I’m almost afraid to check my social media feeds and watch the daily world news on TV. I’m somewhat afraid to fly the so-called ‘friendly skies.’ They almost charge you an arm and a leg to fly on a crowded&…

Throughout history of mankind, those in power always used the repressive apparatus (police and justice) for the maintenance of the existing political and social order.

The Illiberal Alliance with the RegressiveLeft

On Islamic Banking

I was recently asked my opinion on Islamic banking. I know next to nothing about that. I am told that it is against Islamic principles to charge interest on loans. As a liberal, I take the position that people ought to be free to do whatever they want with their property. They should be free to len…

A Balanced Budget Amendment, Completely Different

I have a different thought on a Balanced Budget Amendment.  Any Balanced Budget Amendment ought to tie a balanced budget to asset sales and tie completed asset sales to a wage freeze on all federal employees until enough assets have been sold to offset the previous year’s deficit. &#…

In New York State we are seeing expanding policies to limit the purchase of cigarettes by youth from age 18 to age 21.  I don't agree with this tightening prohibition policy.  It should be left at 18, or even moved back to 16.  The policy creates black market consequences, and black m…

Unions – Angels or Devils?

I've always had mixed feelings toward labor unions. On one hand, they've done a lot to improve the pay and working conditions of us blue collar types, but on the other hand, they can be like a pimp shaking down a ho. As if Uncle Sam isn’t a big enough pimp. They also have their own unique form…
