Reasoned, Relevant And Often Contrarian Commentary On Economics


November 07
I'm an electrical engineer and mathematician by training. My career has spanned diverse areas of expertise from being part of a team which designed the world's most powerful computers to corporate consulting around business transformation and information-based solutions to being a corporate sales and marketing executive in the information technology and business consulting space. I’ve led teams responsible for innovative and transformative solutions and been part of teams that helped set strategy for many of America's greatest companies. Two of my interests are econometrics, democratic finance and quantitative - qualitative analysis. Over the years I have developed risk-based models and trading systems meant to identify significant investment opportunities and periods of extreme risk. My blog is an outlet for another of my passions, writing. I generally consider myself a contrarian. Therefore, many of my rantings are meant to encourage people to question what they believe to be true. Terms of Use & Disclaimer: First off, I don't take anything on here too seriously and you shouldn't either. These are simply sardonic rantings of Bill, my alter ego, often meant to agitate for peaceful & nonviolent reform. This web site reflects the views of its authors.

On Friday Obama gave a speech on his first payback agenda item for his corporate masters. Well, the second. The first was to bomb Yemen. His second will be to cut social programs that disproportionately benefit those who have been left behind to ensure the… Read full post »

I have been promising to put up a post on America’s second civil war for a long time now. As I have noted before, I am not stating that the U.S. will devolve into internal armed conflict. But, we most certainly are in the midst of… Read full post »

I have been beating the drum most of this year that change was coming. Just not in the form of hope most people believe they are going to see. Early this year I remarked of an upcoming turn date. That date turned out to be… Read full post »

An already extremely weak solar cycle may be peaking well below what was anticipated. Bad news for Al Gore’s Nobel Prize and for the global economy. Buckle up. The cycle of volatility continues in full force. Read full post »

Our corporate masters and the shady political party bosses who do their will won the presidential election. No great surprise. The only two choices for most were both party bosses. Romney lost his home state by the largest count in 150 years and Ryan’s home… Read full post »

Honestly, I don’t really care who wins the 2012 presidential election.  There is no way either major party candidate can actually stop the future.  Nor can they embrace it without creating their own demise.  There was a time for action but it has passed.  It just doesn&rsquo… Read full post »

Weather and temperature patterns around the solar system continue to confound existing belief systems. The recent landing of Mars’ rover Curiosity found the planet much warmer than “expected”. “Expected” was placed in the NASA announcement as a politicization of… Read full post »

For-profit insurance companies overbilled Medicare By $282 billion.  That’s $282 billion that should not have been paid in executive bonuses, investors, to invest in new buildings, new equipment, etc.   Let’s be frank.  This number is just a swag.  Yet, I have seen a few… Read full post »

Speaking of the Toyota Production System, back in 2006 and 2007 I put up a few posts where I wrote that Ford, Chrysler and GM would rise from the ashes to become successful companies again.   A few of my posts about lean methods and a coming turn around for Ford (wellRead full post »

What a surprise.  In a system that grants title, rank and social status based on birthright, the toadies maintain that grip through secrecy, corruption and granting themselves special privilege.   Sounds familiar.

Friday Reading List

I have read all of these and they are excellent, courtesy of CounterPunch.   I don’t get to their site as often as I would like but it is a favorite of mine.  My favorites below are 2, 3, 5 and 7.    If you are an Obama supporter, you should read 3… Read full post »

I had a relative who had a heart attack about five years ago.  His cholesterol was incredibly low before the heart attack.  As readers on here know, I think science and reason has proven that cholesterol as a cause of heart attacks is a crock of shit.  The evidence isn’t there… Read full post »

Let me start out with a baseline for new(er) readers.  I have written incessantly over the years that debt is an illusion and myth.  That it isn’t real.  And, that gold money is looter’s money.  That it is exactly the opposite of democratic money.   That we needed pu… Read full post »

As I‘ve noted on here before, were I king for a day, I would boot the queen mother’s ass to the curb.   She can work at Sainsbury’s or Wal-mart like everyone else.   I don’t care how much tourist money a monarchy brings it.  It permeates an elitist class-based culture… Read full post »

Back both six and seven years ago I wrote a few posts on Google including that it is a massive bubble.  Much of the reason for that is the same dynamic that I wrote more recently that Facebook could disappear by 2020.   Both of these would be laughed at by anyone… Read full post »

Once again capitalism’s coup d'état shits all over democracy’s one person-one vote.  Is this really anything other than encouraging extortion? 

Extortion - To wrest or wring (money, information, etc.) from a person by violence, intimidation, or abuse of authority.

We are all slaves.… Read full post »

So, what to say?  I said this was going to happen on some level at the time Obama wasted taxpayer money on this boondoggle.   I didn’t say bankruptcy would happen but when the original investment was made I wrote that it was a preposterous waste of money with absolutely no reasonable… Read full post »

I just finished perusing the documents regarding the Lance Armstrong investigation on the USADA web site and it appears incontrovertible that Armstrong won all of the Tour de France victories aided by various forms of drug use in addition to regular doping.  Until now, there seemed to be some do… Read full post »

The Nazis.  This truly is rich.  I guess this is finally going to force me to get a post up that I have promised before.  I’ll make sure it gets up by the end of the year.  You’ll get a very clear appreciation of my Nazi remark and how completely ignorant,… Read full post »

Quite frankly, I could care less who people vote for. I’m not voting for Obama or any other corporate-manufactured puppet. But I find this repulsive and representative of how capitalism trumps democracy almost without exception. How capitalism oftentimes literally terrorizes democracy in the proces… Read full post »

Looks like Venetians have joined Quebec in their desire for independence from the state.  I wonder how many people in the United States would support independence from Washington?  Haha – A world without Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Eric Cantor, John Boehner and Harry Reid?  Oh, come on.… Read full post »
