Bio
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.

This is a rehash of many older posts but I'm including much of it for understanding for new readers.  After dismantling regulations on private, for-profit capital over the last few decades, the investor class, or mostly American and British looter… Read full post »

"A person starts to live when he can live outside himself."  -- Albert Einstein

Over the last few days I watched the two-part Oprah Winfrey interviews with Lance Armstrong.  I'm sure the OWN network will replay both nights either online or on their channel or on Youtube if anyone is… Read full post »

The ECB president must be smoking something or his head is so far up his ass that it has snapped off and become permanently lost in the nether regions of excrement and asshattery.  The European bond market is not sharing his enthusiasm.  Nor are the countless millions suffering through his… Read full post »

Probably a year after Obama's first inauguration I went to listen to a handful of constitutional scholars speak.  Glenn Greenwald was one of them.   At the time I was dubious of his message.  He was still soft-pedaling to some degree.  I don’t think he was really on the… Read full post »

It seems our king believes America does not want Britain to leave the European Union.  I don't remember any public servant asking my opinion or that of any of the sovereign people of this nation that he so humbly serves.  And, I clearly don't recall the sovereign people of Britain asking… Read full post »

I just watched this new one hour documentary that ended fifteen minutes ago.  It is now available to watch online.  This brings back some old memories for me.  I wrote on my blog exactly what was going to happen to our banking system almost a year before the 2008 collapse in… Read full post »

I haven't been at a computer today so this is late.  But I wanted to get this up.  I have felt compelled to write about the topic covered in this video for many years but have refrained from doing so.  I most certainly feel very strongly that the views shared by… Read full post »

Below is a chart shown on here numerous times.  As noted when Apple was near its peak, it appeared to be in a blow off phase after rocketing out of its linear regression channel.  And that move appeared to be driven by unusual and large activity in Apple derivatives.

Nothing is more glorified in the proletariat corporate state than work.  Nothing.   I have a few really interesting posts on this topic but it'll probably be six months or a year before I put them up.

Thirty years ago there was talk of a four day work week. Heard that… Read full post »

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom." – Martin Luther King

I truly do think it is highly plausible this is going to end very, very badly.   Much worse than anyone in the mainstream would dare contemplate.  As noted on here many times, before this cycle ends there could be horrific revelations about our government brought to light.  … Read full post »

Now, there are a lot of conspiratorial comments that are going to come to pass with this announcement.  The AP reports that this came about due to an audit.  And, that the gold was originally stored in New York to avoid being taken by a Soviet invasion.  That is plausible for… Read full post »

"We all know now that Al Gore is nothing but a bullshitter," said the staffer bluntly.

There is so much to say here.  Most of those comments should be directed at those who outsource their thinking to politicians and swindlers but I will refrain with just a few choice comments.  … Read full post »

Over the last eight years one of the consistent themes on here is that we are in the largest financial bubble the world has ever seen. That financial bubble which has liquefied the corporate world to the point of no historical comparisons has led to the… Read full post »

It most certainly is about time our nation’s public space administration allow astro-science to bubble up and reach the public as it pertains to our climate.

Ahem. Title link of the op-ed proposing a repeal of the Second Amendment here.

Even in the best of circumstances, law enforcement has little chance of stopping a crime. In most instances, violent crimes are first defended by the victim. Or as… Read full post »

This is truly amazing. For me, this is one of the greatest discoveries in recent memory for many esoteric reasons. And for those who believe our space program should be handed over to for-profit corporations… well, we can thank our lucky stars that hasn’t happened… Read full post »

Thirty” Filmmakers On Illegal Torture

The political trolls from both parties are joining forces for what could be rather dubious reasons. This could easily be something much different than the headlines. It could be that lawmakers are trying to ensure their involvement in illegal… Read full post »

New Capitalist Nobility.

Capitalism and corporations are inventions of the state. In fact, it’s quite easy to actually draw the lineage that corporate capitalism is simply an extension of the state. And, as such, given war is the health of the state, that the… Read full post »

The Mythical Fiscal Cliff Part 1

I’ll get my post about the mythical fiscal cliff up in the next week. There may be one or two minor posts I place ahead of it. Actually, it will probably be two posts to break it down but in the mean time I am going… Read full post »
