Gobble Up Some Jackass


It's a market holiday weekend so you know what that means....fresh Jackass for your listening pleasure!

In this wide-ranging conversation, The Jackass and I discuss:

  • the U.S. election results
  • the roiling global markets post-election
  • what the turmoil in the currency markets may suggest
  • how changes in global interest rates will impact the global economy and markets
  • the impact higher rates are having on hyper-levered balance sheets

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

5th - Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!

After listening to Dr. Willie, here's a good follow up read tied directly to the economy: Ron Paul's suggestion about ED-EXITing from the US Dep't of Education.

How does this tie to the economy? With industry sent offshore in the 1960s, in most counties in America, the local school district is the largest employer and the largest budget. Anybody notice the preponderance of Taj Mahals? All those contractors unable to build factories, etc. needed jobs so of course where did they turn?

Consider this: While many conservatives have been trained by conservative think tanks to push for school "choice" -- the resulting charter schools are run by un-elected boards (therefore not accountable to taxpayers) spending public tax dollars. What clearer definition of socialism can there be? We can talk about Common Core another time. Same for the Gulenist schools being the largest charter operator in the US. (Anybody noticing the Chinese are following the Turks?)

Here's Dr. Paul's suggestion: "Parents and other concerned citizens should pressure Congress to finally shut down the Department of Education and return the money to American families. They also must pressure state governments and local school boards to reject federal mandates, even if it means forgoing federal funding."

God bless all of you, and God bless our great constitutional republic --

Repost of Dr. P for Thanksgiving

Ah, I see

Submitted by Dr. P. Metals on November 24, 2016 - 10:16am.

Hat Tip!


More occult/illuminati/pagan/Masonic human hogwash, fabricated no doubt during an earthquake under a full blood moon right after an eclipse while standing on the 66th meridian facing east worshiping the sun as it rises making hand signs and gestures chanting koom-bay-ah.

I prefer the white of the spotless Lamb, who washes away the scarlet red sin of the world, for all who believe.

Use this fine Thanksgiving day instead to look up at the stars of heaven and give thanks to the Lord who created heaven and earth!

Use your brain man (and woman)!! Think about the so called educated ridiculous intellectual nonsense you have been taught about things like evolution. That there is no Lord and Creator. as if we somehow evolved from primordial goo or something by some stroke of luck. It runs completely at odds with ALL laws of entropy, thermodynamics and physics. Order is NOT created out of chaos, except by an outside Creator imparting design and energy into that thing.

I ask you, does your own house ever "clean itself up" if left all by Itself? No, it simply gets worse: messier, dirtier, more disorganized! You, as intelligence, outside of that house, must impart intelligence, design and energy to change it! But hey, maybe if you wait long enough, by luck, it will simply clean itself up one instant and get "orderly".

Take back your intellect this very day from the ridiculous brainwashing you have been given and the occult superstitions myths and utter rubbish that is so widespread.

Claim your victory today in Christ, the spotless lamb! Choose white.

Edit: I'd like to add. You all are on this forum because you clearly see the deception thats been done on the masses financially. Yet it amazes me, most here fail to see that the VERY SAME people have ALSO deceived you in matters of education, science, and so-called "religion" to also pursue THEIR own agenda. Please wake up from your sleep. You can do so, you've proven it, by being here and awaking from the financial sleep and deception already! Now do the same to their other brainwashing.

Been waiting for this one

Can't think of anything better to do while the turkey is cooking.

Also, I reposted pics on yesterday's article, hosted on Pintrest rather than Google. Hopefully, they display for everyone now.
