That’s a well-known exhortation by the late President Theodore Roosevelt. He was all about actually doing something yourself, rather than expecting (or electing) others to do it for you. I’ve tried to live up to his advice, not always successfully, but always with a better outcome than if I hadn’t tried at all. The… Continue reading “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are”
Quote of the week
From an article in the American Spectator titled “An Elegy for the FBI“: Thanks to the raid of Trump’s home, the FBI is not only faced with having lost the confidence and cooperation of almost half of America. It has also transformed itself into a despised moral leper colony — a painted, hagged out,… Continue reading Quote of the week
Money over the past 10,000 years or so
I recently came across an investment service called Epsilon Theory. They have an enormous range of articles and reports that are among the best-researched and easily understandable of any that I’ve read anywhere else. I’ve taken up their (limited) free subscription offer, and I recommend it to you as well. I found their article,… Continue reading Money over the past 10,000 years or so
The food situation, here and worldwide

Sounds like a realistic, pragmatic priest – no wonder he’s been suspended
I note this report with displeasure. Mexico’s Roman Catholic Church has suspended a controversial priest who has advised parishioners to carry guns to fight off drug cartels. Better known as “Father Pistolas,” Rev. Alfredo Gallegos is a priest in the violence-plagued western state of Michoacan who has himself sometimes carried a weapon. A circular… Continue reading Sounds like a realistic, pragmatic priest – no wonder he’s been suspended
If it’s not safe, it doesn’t matter how nice a place may be
Jeffrey Carter puts his finger on a universal truth – one that the current administration and its hangers-on don’t seem to recognize. No one is truly safe anywhere in the urban jungle these days given the way violence against people has been randomized. A lot of wealthy people I know in NYC, Chicago, and… Continue reading If it’s not safe, it doesn’t matter how nice a place may be
An excellent perspective on the breakdown of our society
(This article will deal with matters of religious faith, so if you’re not into that, you might want to skip it.) Fellow author and Christian John C. Wright has penned a magnificent essay, one of the best I’ve ever read about our modern world and the society in which we live. It’s Christian in… Continue reading An excellent perspective on the breakdown of our society
Is World War 3 an inevitable outcome of the current financial system?
Capitalist Eric thinks so. It comes down to a few simple points, which I’ve explained several times over, but will repeat here. The Western elitist banksters have maintained utter control of their respective financial currencies; this debt-slavery system is the basis of their power. It has been, for all intents and purposes, their private… Continue reading Is World War 3 an inevitable outcome of the current financial system?
Lies, damned lies, and inflation fudgery
Two years ago I postulated: We’ve seen in the past how reliable private sources such as Shadowstats and the Chapwood Index have consistently estimated the true inflation rate to be between three and four times higher than the official numbers. I believe them. Therefore, here’s a suggestion, based solidly upon historical economic reality. To… Continue reading Lies, damned lies, and inflation fudgery
I couldn’t agree more!!!
From Congressman Paul Gosar on Gab (clickit to biggit): We have no business sending our taxpayer dollars overseas when we face so many challenges at home that we can’t or won’t finance. Enough, dammit! Peter
