Coney Island – Parachute Ride

Coney Island

Growing up on the East coast of the USA I often heard how absolutely marvelous this destination was to visit.  Unfortunately, when I grew up in the 70′s/80′s most of its 50′s luster was lost and people did not frequent it as much.  I was able to find an old 1950′s photo that I wanted to […]

Remembering on Father’s Day

DeathtoStock_Wired4

Dear Dad, You were a person I really wanted to know more about but you were not accustomed to sharing.  Now that you have been dead for over 1 year I think about the time we could have shared together.    Some people build bridges and others build walls.  If only, you could have communicated […]

Surpression of your Amygdala

Emotional suppression is needed at certain times in our lives and the ability to skillfully manage it should be taught by schools and our parents.   In controlling this mental function will we be de-humanizing ourselves or actually saving ourselves from disaster and irrational thought?  But how can we de-sensitize ourselves from images or events that […]

TARP ACT

More than half of the TARP money was used to pay back the TARP loans and still it is difficult to get a loan.  Wait a minute….when a government increases liquidity the banks are supposed to loan money (Finance 101) but that does not seem to be happening here.  There is a monumental divergence going […]

When Should Freedom of Speech be Curtailed

This is a topic that I want to bring up for general discussion. Yelling “fire” in a crowded theatre has been a valid reason to limit the protection granted under Freedom of Speech but what about newspapers, press syndicates, bloggers or news agents?    These mediums can cause great havoc but do they have any due […]

Mom’s Day Off

Here is a picture of an old pastime for Mom’s.  The imagery of the 50′s mom all dolled up and acting as the perfect wife was great from a man’s perspective.  It was not reality and many women lived hallow lives in that generation although it was picture perfect.  

Life in the Faster Lane

In the year 1991, I was pleased to be able to surf the web and even open an online account with PCFN, a stock investing and trading securities brokerage.  The internet back then was not even 1/10th of what it is today.  One thing that does disturb me until today……the time to complete any given […]

ECONOMICS 101 – Ray Dalio

I enjoyed this video overall. I just wonder how much of it was intentionally created to keep people calm. America, Keep Calm Carry On Spending, and leave your blinders on. How can the largest economy in the world so easily de-leverage (and in the process threaten its status as the reserve currency) without the markets […]

MARCH 2013

MARCH 2013 Market is tough to call when the FEDERAL RESERVE BANK controls it. American’s talk proudly that they have a free and unregulated market while other countries markets’ are overly controlled by their upper classes and the government. What hypocrisy. USA Gov’t is manipulating the press and the markets and even the minds of […]

Velocity of M2 Money Stock (M2V)

Velocity of M2 Money Stock (M2V) Interesting topic to review. This link (below) defines the situation but does not give a “what if” scenario. If it is taking more money to produce a positive GDP that does not bode well when QE stops printing and it has to stop eventually. http://www.economicsfanatic.com/2012/02/us-adjusted-monetary-base-surging-with.html

SWISS BANK COLLAPSES

Swiss banks were really hurt by the American Government. Some of these banks were dead wrong in their practices but were they all deserving of American punishment? http://www.mi2g.com/cgi/mi2g/frameset.php?pageid=http%3A//www.mi2g.com/cgi/mi2g/press/010212.php

Google

Google just made me sick and I threw up… read below… http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2214115/Google-Warns-of-Upcoming-Exact-Match-Domain-Algorithm-Change Google was the destroyer of boundaries and a leveler of the business playing field. Did not take them too long to listen to big business and learn their game. Middle class there are no winners here for you as Google is just in […]
