I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.

NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Still Falling


Obama and Bernanke today reported on the economy (click here for full story).

The recovery will take longer than expected, but they do not know how long it will take. They said unemployment will get worse, but they do not know how much worse. We need to have faith that all of this pork spending will save us all. All hail Barney Frank!

Our government wrecked our economy, and I have little HOPE that our government will ever CHANGE enough to fix anything. Things will improve over time, but it will be from the efficiency of the markets, and not the machinations of government.

I agree that the government must take its share of blame for our current economic mess. But as for change . . . we've seldom seen as much change, administration to administration, as we're seeing now. Just about everything that Bush said/did, Obama is saying and doing exactly the opposite. You want change? You got it.

That's not to say that change is implicitly good. But it seems to me that the policies of the last eight years have been rather conclusively proven wrong. Let's try something new.
