- 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.

Drug dealers, Bernie Madoff, illegal crime syndicates, shysters, con men, grifters, the Russian mafia, financial predators, counterfeiters and on and on. In a world of deregulated finance, all have benefited as now it is easier to create schemes to launder illegal money. Not only th… Read full post »
I don't get too wound up about new gadgets or consumer products. I do like anything with wheels. I want one of these. This is the bomb! It sucks to be Tesla.
What a fitting final post for 2013. A post that is a microcosm for all of the fraud, deceit, manipulation and outright lies that define the class-based corporate state â€“ literally everything touched by the corporate state and its violent, predatory and rent-extracting invention, corporate cap… Read full post »
Fukushima is worse than Chernobyl. I suppose that depends on how it is measured but clearly both are horrific examples of state violence. Corporations, corporate capitalism and communism are inventions of the state used to project state violence. The only reason we consume so much e… Read full post »
Growing up on a farm and in a farming community, it’s hard for me to believe the state of agriculture that exists today. It becomes more and more dystopian with each passing year. We pump unlimited toxins into the ecosystem and our foods in the name of achieving a faux sense… Read full post »
The powers that be have become so habituated to the massive bubble that has been building for decades that insanity is the new normal. And, they can find an untold number of explanations to rationalize it away.

In todayâ€™s world the disconnected or Godless ego is in its full glory and is in total control. Or so it thinks. That control is nothing more than an illusion. Unfortunately, we see this manifested in nearly every form of social, political, corporate and religious violence that is… Read full post »
To start, just a few comments about the â€œbudget dealâ€ in Washington. There are some that are mortified by its contents or lack of willingness to address reality. It seems as though some people still live under the delusion that we can save this system. Look, our monetary a… Read full post »
Unbeknownst to Americans in the early 1960s an unheard of man by the name of Nelson Mandela was imprisoned at that time because of his involvement in achieving social and economic justice for black Africans enslaved into a system of massive injustice, terrorism and brutality in his own homeland. … Read full post »
Back in mid-2011 I wrote that we were about to see the largest downward earnings print in over a decade. Then a few months later Reuters reported just that. The largest drop in earnings expectations since 2000, I believe. Since then earnings and earnings expectations have consistent… Read full post »
Years ago I wrote that the U.S. could see the day where many in the military put down their weapons and refuse to fight. I am quite confident I understand the social dynamics of today since I wrote about most of them years before they emerged. --->>> There is no one… Read full post »
Stockman points to the Russell 2000 trading at a PE of 85 and the Federal Reserveâ€™s complicity in the Wall Street fraud that created it; something that has been noted on here many times. This is an index of 2000 companies not a company or two or ten. There are a… Read full post »
And, just a reminder that the pathological military-industrial complex spinmeisters and their conflicts of interest urged America to bomb Syria.
This is why we must live by a rule of law rather than a self-appointed pathological ruling class t… Read full post »
Another reason to hate lawyers â€“ they are destroying American society. I havenâ€™t seen anyone else write of the lawyer bubble but it is a long term thesis on here. And, it certainly is real and massive. This author has picked up on that truth. We could easily see 80%… Read full post »
I thought I would throw this up as a holiday post and circumvent my regular posting. Let me first introduce this story by providing some degree of context.

I want to put a little reminder in here. For quite some years I have written that we could wake up some morning and see the Dow down thousands of points. I’m sure most people believe that statement is ludicrous. Well, but then we actually saw the flash crash. That… Read full post »
Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of President Kennedy. So, I thought I would post a position that isn’t very popular with many people in this nation. That is, one must contemplate that the Kennedy assassination may not have been some substantial conspiracy of powerful forc… Read full post »
As if destroying community and individual freedoms isnâ€™t enough, the current economic system of terror that privatizes gains and socializes losses, free market corporate capitalism, has reached a point of literally destroying our ecology on a global scale.

Fukushima is a horrendous mess. Much worse than I ever imagined it could get. That mess has been made worse by systemic incompetence of the Japanese government and the Fukushima’s operator, TEPCO.
Those are the words of the director of PopularResistance.Org in the Real News video interview link below.

The mirage keeps collapsing as the authentic Obama continues to be exposed. We certainly seem in full stride of the shit hitting the fan for the plundering corporatocracy.
Wow. Today Obama made what may be one of the biggest political faux pas I have ever seen. Our king and neo-feudal master has spoken today about the state of Obamacare. And as he does so, all of the mainstream media dunces nod their heads up and down as they transcribe… Read full post »
