THE ECONOMY   
 
 
                                                        
SOLVENCY WITH SOVEREIGNTY
 
 
 
                          
This website considers it to be a gross insult & offense to the American citizen
                            psyche in depicting Americans as lazy creatures via phraseology such as
                           "The Jobs Americans Don't Want". America's greatness stems from the fact that
                            there is no job, too great or too small, that Americans are simply too spoiled
                            to handle.                                                  
 

                     
1.   THE STOCK MARKET IS BACK, BUT THE DEBT, ECONOMY & JOBS ARE NOT..
                           They say the stock market is a predictor of the future economy, which means it leads everything else.
                           Whether or not that is true remains to be seen.
                           At the current time one might think it to be the case.
 
                          
However looking back at 2008, the stock market was flying high when all of a sudden, boom, we crashed.
                           The precursor to that event was very visible, ie, the outsourcing of jobs, companies going over seas for
                           cheap labor, & the hiring of illegals. In other words, there was a total rejection of American domestic
                           labor, leaving it up to the shut-out worker to turn to the housing market to survive, taking advantage
                           cheap "affordable" mortgage loans based upon a preceived ever rising housing market. & when that
                           bubble finally popped, all hell broke loose.

                          
The solutons invoked to restore the economy (& presumably jobs) include the government issuing more
                           bonds  & the FED buying those bonds to create more liquidity (ie, money supply) & manipulate interest
                           rates  to low levels by buying those bonds at high prices. The net result is to fight deflation, which
                           automatically creates  inflation, & thus increases the values of stocks & commodities.

                          
This is all well & good, BUT THE EFFECT IS PURELY COSMETIC.
                           Until we address the REAL CAUSES OF DOMESTIC UNEMPLOYMENT  (which includes
                           the CULTURAL ISSUES & OBSCENE CEO SALARIES & BONUSES), our economy will
                           never mend. Just because the unemployment rate is now giving good readings does not mean
                           we are recovered. There are millions of dead bodies of domestic workers & veterans who
                           simply have stopped collecting unemployment & are falling into the ranks of the homeless.
                           It is not their fault. To some extent, the initial Occupy WallStreet movement had a point,
                           but unfortunately it became tainted with radical political opportunists.
                           This remaing killing field of the dead unemployed is the fault of a government  that has not done its job in
                           keeping illegals out, keeping companies at home, & encouraging domestic labor, all while failing
                           to inspire individual self accountability & responsibility.

                          
"BUY AMERICAN" means "HIRE AN AMERICAN".  It does not mean create a position in an
                           American business so you can put a foreigner to work. "Creating" jobs is one thing. WHO THOSE JOBS
                           GO TO is quite another.

                            
"INTERNATIONAL FAIR TRADE" applies to goods, it should not apply to services.
                            But then we tend to forget that it is just not “FAIR” trade that is being implemented.
                            It now must be “FREE” trade.  The economic reality is that we are seeing the downside of globalization
                            which began in the early 1990s.   At that time, the cold war ended & there was a great euphoria
                            wherein peace broke out.   The monitoring of our borders was severely relaxed, & NAFTA went
                            beyond agreement to  simply trade goods,  but to trade services as well. The Euro soared.
                            The DOW surpassed 10000.  Companies went abroad to find cheaper labor.  
                            & NOW THE EUPHORIA IS OVER.   Countries will retreat to defensive positions, because survival
                            is all important.

                            The business environment not only needs to be encouraged by reducing government
                            imposed regulations & taxes that are ridiculous (such as demanding health care insurance), but it also
                            needs to be properly regulated to assure that every domestic American citizen is given top priority
                            in hiring practices as well as relative salary scales compared to the top hired CEO.
                             Imposing taxes (higher than the norm) on those companies who outsource overseas to reap the
                            benefit of cheaper labor  is one way to discourage such endeavor. Penalties & fines should be
                             placed upon those businesses who knowingly hire illegals. Hired CEOs  (ie, not the company founder)
                             ought to be taxed for their outrageous compensations & bonuses. & boards of directors should
                             be prevented from having directors who are already serving on a board with another company.     


                        
2. The 2011 FEDERAL BUDGET & PAST GOVERNMENT SPENDING
 
                                    

                                   




                       
3.  When Two Economic Ideologies Clash,
                            Maybe We Should Reexamine Those Policies That Got Us
Here In The First Place.
                            Our economic crisis can be traced to the 1999 republican Congress, with the help of Bill Clinton,
                           repealling  Glass-Steagal & the unfettered deregulation of business. GW Bush promised to defend
                            this country, BUT LEFT OUR BACKDOOR WIDE OPENED, while replubican scandal was running
                            rampant. In 2006 & 2008, the democrats promised to stop the ethics violations when it came to
                            lobbying & backroom deals.& Obama promised to devote his full attention to the economic crisis, 
                            & even implied a promised to curtail the flow of illegals via his questioning of the benefits of NAFTA.

                            And then came the fall of 2008 with the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the bailout of AIG, & the
                            TARP program, all done under the GWB administration. We looked to the future & Obama's promises.
                            But they were never to be.  Having won full control, the Democratic Congress with a Democratic
                            President turned its back on the economy to ramrod through Obamacare. & now we are being told
                            by those same democrats that the republican presidential candidates are LYING.
 
                           Whether or not OBAMACARE is better than Ryan's proposal, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT NO ONE IN THE
                           DEMOCRATIC CAMP IS ABLE TO ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THE BENEFITS OF THE MONSTER
                           THAT THEY CREATED. Oh yes, we all know that the allegedly important "donut hiole" has been closed.
                           We all know that there is going to be a  "health insurance exchange" to help those who don't know how
                           to read the yellow pages in finding an insurance carrier. We all know that kids don't have to grow up
                           until the age of 26. And we all know that the financing provisions are in fact a TAX, which Obama says
                           it is not. And we all know that everyone will have to have health insurance (like it or not). BUT WHAT
                          WE DO NOT KNOW IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS EITHER CANNOT OR WILL NOT TELL US.
                          And it would seem it is more that they cannot tell us, BECAUSE THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW
                          THEMSELVES, BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT & DID NOT EVEN READ THE THING WHEN THEY
                          FORCED IT THROUGH. And now we are suppose to take their words as being "fact"?
                          It would be a profound travesty if this country were to fall for such a level of mentality.
 
                    4.
 I cannot criticize Ben Bernanke that much, because he is concerned about solving a problem that
                         was  exacerbated by his deregulating predecessors, Alan Greenspan, Larry Summers, & company,
                         who ignored  Brooksley Born's warning  in the 1990s.

Rather than choosing between one option (to drastically cut spending) & the other (to tax),
                         may be we should prudently back track on ALL OF THOSE IRRESPONSIBLE  LAWS & POLICIES
                         (AS WELL AS THE NEGLIGENCE) THAT GOT US HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE  &
                         FIRE EVERY ONE OF THOSE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS WHO CONTRIBUTED TO
                         THE DEVELOPMENT. That includes regulating our borders, evicting illegals,  closing loopholes
                         in the Constitution that were valid years ago (but not today),etc. At the same time,
                         we need to curtail piggish greed at all levels & begin to use the internet more.

                     
5.  Paul Craig Roberts (on VDARE.com & Lewrockwell.com)  economic / political views.
                          This website does not agree with all that Mr Roberts comments on, but it does agree
                          with his views on corporate out-sourcing & the hiring of illegals.

Mr Roberts was assistant treasurer under Ronald Reagan. He was also an editor &
                          writer for the Wall street Journal.

6.   Oct 7, 2011 Job Picture -  103,000 jobs were added in September  while our population
                          grows by 100,000 per month. How much of population growth is due to BABY WARS, ie,
                          anchor babies? It is estimated (in 2007) that there  were 30,250 anchor babies born each month.

                    
7.   HOW OUR MONETARY SYSTEM WORKS

                          
The US BOND MARKET IS WHAT BACKS THE FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE.
                          The issuance of U.S. Treasury Bonds/debt is what gives rise to Federal Reserve Notes

                                         TAF=900 Billion
                                         Stimulus I (Bush) = 168 Bill ion or 1 Trill ion?
                                         Stimulus II (Obama) = 787 Billion
                                         TARP = 700 Bill ion
                                         QE0 = 1.2 Trilli on (Fed Reserve bought troubled Assets or toxic?)
                                         QE1 = 175 Billi on from Housing GSEs
                                         QE1 = 300 Bill ion in US bond buyback
                                         QE1 = 1.25 Tri llion in mortgage backed securities
                                         QE2 = 600 Bill ion bond buyback
                                         QE2 = 300 Bill ion for mortgage backed securities
                                          Operation twist = ? QE3 perhaps ?
                                          America Job Act = 450 Billlion - another stimulus add to the national debt.
                                          Hope for Homeowners (FHA)=300 Billi on
                                           FDIC Line of credit= 500 Billio n
                                           Bush Tax cut extension by Obama=79 Bill ion estimate
                                           Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac =400 Bill ion

9.  The Stock Market Follows Unemployment.

                                           



                  
10. About GLOBAL POPULATION GROWTH.

11. This is an OUTRAGE.  Per NAFTA, Mexican Trucks will begin rolling across our borders &
                        through the nation's   heartlland over  highways that we paid for with taxes .

                                     
1st Mexican truck to enter US interior within days

                      
Do you not get the feeling that our government is hypocritical &  screwing us big time?
                       The government has already brought about the current economic mess as well as not protecting
                       our sovereignty from illegals. & now, despite  millions of American citizens being out of work,
                       our so called government  is depriving more work from American truckers by allowing this to happen.

                      
This goes far beyond the purposes of any legitimate  free trade agreement, which is primarily
                        for the exchange of goods, not necessarily services. It is an outright betrayal of the American
                        people. 

                 
12.  ONLY 18% OF US CITIZENS believe the Affordable Health Care Act will improve or help
                        their positions.

                                         
The health care debate: popularity, probability, and facts
 
                 
13. Our Fragile Global Banking System.
                       At the bottom of a crisis is the stability  ( or lack thereof )  of money market funds which are at the
                        very core of investing. Perhaps we need to be looking in greater detail at the trading criteria
                       & regulation of those money market funds, rather than unraveling the entire monetary system
                       by returning to the gold standard.

And exactly how would a return to the gold standard cure the FAILINGS OF THE RATING AGENCIES?
