TFMR Podcast #6 - John Soltez

126

This week, I had the opportunity to visit with author, John Soltez. Not only is John a great writer, he's also an independent trader who understands the PMs and their manipulation. Basically, he's our kind of guy.

Back in the late 1990s, John wrote a book entitled "Only in America". The premise of the book is a breakdown of American society in the aftermath of a disputed presidential election. It disturbingly details one possible end of "the great Keynesian experiment" and, with another election just over the horizon, it is a timely read.

If, after listening to the podcast you are inspired to purchase this book, a handy link has been provided below. TF

Turd - I'm surprised you wouldn't see it.

Why would Joe 6-Pack be interested in de-regulation? That Joe-6 is probably a small business owner who ships product across a state line. WHAM! He's subject to almost all the same regulations a big corporation is (DOC, DOT...). Bad stereotyping of the Tea Party IMHO.

Oooo - 'nother faux pas'

Big mistake Soltez - Ron Paul is not the most ideologically pure conservative, he is the purest libertarian, regardless of the party nomination he may get. I don't think this is a matter of opinion.

Not too impressed

Only a guy who's pretty much a dedicated lefty would have been able to ignore that the Tea Party folks opposed all the corporate bailouts and decide that they're just pro corporation. Obviously the nature of that group has changed, mostly for the worse since its founding, but I'd like to see Mr. Soltez tell Danninger that he was simply pro-corporation. Really?! Disappointing.

Also tremendously disappointing and symptomatic of reflexive lefties was the disbelief that an average guy would oppose regulation. At its base, much of the time, that view is the product of a snobbish, dismissive attitude toward the average citizen. It ignores the possibility that the average guy thinks he can make it on his own if the deck wasn't stacked against him. It imagines that the average guy is partly waiting around for his "betters", like the guy who is dismissive, to give him something.

Man chilly night here in

Man chilly night here in Merry Old New England.

Family took off to the movies ( not my bag of goods ) so here I sit beer in hand. Walked around on my property, lot of Skunks out this evening, and Foggy :)

So I'm putting a bag of pellets in the pellet stove and I look up and see the mirror and I ask myself, do these teeth make me look fat?

Gold Bitches, positive week.

Turd thanks for the Pod cast. good stuff as always.
