OPEC's Not Torpedoing the Bakken...Yet

A big concern right now is that the Saudis and OPEC in general have been flooding the market with oil, driving prices down in the hopes of driving Bakken (and other) US oil firms out of business.  The Saudi's can pump oil and remain profitable at a much lower price than their American counterparts, and it is speculated that the recent and dramatic drop in gas prices has been due to OPEC flooding the market.

The opposite is quite true.  It's American oil flooding the market that threatens themselves;

You combine this with fears of slowing global economic growth and crusaderist wimps green-conscious-fuel-saving Americans and Europeans, demand for oil has also gone down, driving prices down.

OPEC is planning a closed door meeting in which they will collude like the monopolies you'd all like to think "Big Oil Companies" collude like in an attempt to cut oil production and jack up prices.  Thankfully they all hate each other almost as much as they hate the US, so they will unlikely cut oil production despite what they say. 

The real issue is whether fracking technologies can be improved that American oil producers can still remain profitable at lower oil prices, and I believe since they largely employ the last vestiges of real, innovative and industrious Americans, they can.  Better yet, the good news is that "peak oil" or a "post oil world" has been postponed beyond our lifetimes.  We will not run out of oil in our lifetimes AND even if the mideast runs out, we got enough here in the US to last.

It is one of the rare bits of good news to enjoy in today's world, especially given this reality will continue to piss off environmentalists for the rest of their lives.

The Contemporary Art Bubble

An amazing article from a classically trained artist who is predicting the collapse of the "contemporary" art bubble.  He uses some interesting statistics, one in particular where there is five times as many galleries displaying art made in the past 60 years as there are galleries displaying art in the past 4,000.

Anyway, I am not art collector, but my general rule of thumb is, "If I can do it, then it isn't art."  And sadly, that's most art today.

The Children's Wing of the Libertarian Party

I am a libertarian.  And like most libertarians, I'm too lazy and into my own life to bother running for politics or "doing anything about it."  If I'd partake in a libertarian meeting it would be to find like-minded fellows and enjoy interesting and engaging conversation.

But while I believe there is a silent majority of libertarians who are basically socially liberal conservatives, there's a loud, vocal minority within the libertarian party.  And they're getting annoying.

Unlike the real libertarians, this vocal minority is more of the crusaderist variety.  More focused on "protesting" and being part of some underdog crusade against "the man."  This results in them voicing protests that are no different than what comes from leftists and socialists.

Hyperbole over police brutality.
All war is evil.
Soldiers are murderers.
It's all about oil.
The Illuminati.
The legalization of pot
"It's the corporations MAAAAAN!!!!"
They even have a god damned Wikipedia entry for "libertarian socialism" which is the epitome of contradiction.

In short, they really aren't libertarians as much as they are college kids who maybe read a pamphlet and now deem themselves "libertarians" since it's "cool" and "edgy."  You might as well lump them in with the token high school "anarchist" or "marxist," both parodies of themselves as they Venn diagram with "emo" and "wears mascara."

Now if it were just faux intellectual kids choosing to be different instead of displaying genuine intellect, I'd be fine with that.  Pat them on the head.  "Yeah, man, 'socialist libertarianism.'  What evs" as the youth like to say.  But they can't just "be" libertarians.  No, their egos get in the way.

No, they go the pastoral route and become the self-declared "majority whip" of the libertarian party, proselytizing, lecturing, and berating the majority of libertarians for their sins of (GASP!)

being OK with legitimate war
liking cops
having beers with soldiers
not believing in conspiracy theories
pro-corporation/business
and thinking pot is stupid

And so I think it's about time to slap them down.

I'm henceforth calling these type of crusaderist libertarians the "Children's Wing of the Libertarian Party."  They like to make noise, view themselves in a self-aggrandizing and holy way, they're typically younger and inexperienced, and like children, should be seen and not heard.  Perhaps if I ever do attend a meeting and join, I could make a motion for them to have their own little "Kiddies Table" at libertarian conventions where we can give them mascara and nylon and trench coats as well as copies of Das Kapital and a couple bags of pot.  And when they get real nice and high, and think they have the solutions to the world's problems (not to mention the political platform of the libertarian party) we'll give them crayons and some paper and maybe they can spell it out, signing it at the bottom with their name and age.

Then I'll take it home, put it up on my fridge and my girlfriend will ask,

"What's that dear?"

And I'll say,

"Nothing dear.  Literally nothing."

How QE Money Ends Up in the Stock Market

Sometimes I like to connect the dots for my readers or for those of you who "know" something is happening, but don't know precisely how.  So today we'll be looking at how QE money ends up in the stock market, thereby increasing PE ratios and making nothing worth buying!

So the first step is where the federal reserve is faced with the fact that Keynesian stimulus is failing, specifically monetary policy only affects inflation and prices and not real economic growth.  Egos and heads explode at the fed because they're "economic geniuses" so they can't be wrong!  So they lie to themselves and say they just "didn't do enough of it" and go onto fire up the printing presses.

But what to do with the money?  They don't want to cause "inflation" but they still want to "boost the economy."  So what they do is buy US treasury bonds, sometimes directly from the US treasury, but other times from banks and other financial institutions that are looking to get rid of that paper.  But it's not just US treasuries they sell to the sucker fed.  They unload their crappy junk mortgage backed securities to the fed, as well as their overprice stocks.





















The proceeds of these purchases go into the coffers of the commercial bank and other financial institutions that sold those worthless pieces of paper securities to the fed.  And what do they do with these hundreds of billions of dollars?

Why they invest it in the stock market!

And yes, it really is that simple junior, deputy, aspiring, official and otherwise economists!

Of course the increase in stock prices is not considered "real inflation" because...well...fed economists said so.  So you go right ahead and max out your 401k contribution buying overpriced stocks with a PE of 27 and a dividend yield of 2%!  It's patriotic!

There Is Nothing to Say About Ferguson

My time is finite and precious.  Therefore I don't waste it.

I've had several inquiries about my opinion about Ferguson and it basically boils down to the Alcoholics Prayer where "grant me the wisdom to know what I can and cannot change."  And Ferguson cannot be changed.

A thug was killed by a cop.

That thug happened to be black and the cop white.

The black community in Ferguson, programmed to hate and view everything in terms of race did not see it as one less criminal in their neighborhood, but an act of racism.  They viewed last night's verdict as additional proof to their oppression and went to the streets to protest, destroying their own neighborhood, looting things that weren't theirs, ensuring no serious employer or business ever sets up shop there again, further condemning themselves to a life of secondary citizenry.

My political analysis of this is

YAAAAAWWWWWNNNNN.

When something new or interesting happens, let me know.  Ferguson was entirely predictable, but more importantly, not solvable.  Ergo, I don't care how many thousands of hours of political coverage and analysis ensues, not one minute of it will be anything new or productive.  You might as well be watching Maury Povich or Jerry Springer.  Matter of fact, my little piece here is about the only thing you really need to read about Ferguson.

So I recommend you view Ferguson like I do - your life is too short and too valuable to waste a second on it.  Do something else instead like watching a good documentary, spending time with your family, learning a new skill or teaching yourself how to enjoy the decline.

Australia White Ribbon Campaign-Absuing Abused Women

Disgusting.  Just disgusting.

Not only does the Australian White Ribbon campaign make absolutely NO effort to ameliorate abuse against women, they simply use domestic violence as a way to merely profit for themselves.  I don't even see a god damned expense for "cause expense" or "charity."  There's like NO MONEY making it into the hands of abused women.  It's damn well near 100% expenses just to keep the non-profit going to pay their salaries.

You may hate "evil corporations."
You may hate "big oil."

But for the love of god is there anything more sick than using victims to profit off of it ALL WHILE CLAIMING TO BE HELPING THESE VICTIMS?

You non-profit people are scum.

What's Really Driving the Basic Guaranteed Income

I happily discovered a new treasure trove of podcasts.  They focus primarily on the history of the UK, but also delve into world history, wars, etc., allowing me to further educate myself in an arena I am woefully ignorant in.  But something interesting happened while listening to a podcast.

During one of the interviews you could clearly hear the interviewer and interviewee.  But in the background you could hear a woman singing.  Turns out the interview was being recorded at a cathedral of some sort and as part of the ambiance they had a woman singing.  But then my rapid economic mind started thinking, thought through, and then concluded a thought in less than a second:

"Is that really a woman singing?
In the olden days I'm sure it was, but with technology it's likely just a recording being played on a stereo system.
So that woman only had to record he singing once.
I wonder what she does with all of her free time now.
God do I hate San Fransisco taxi cab drivers."

The last bit of logic may not make sense, but it does if you allow for a little bit of economic hand holding.  For the woman singing in the church (either past or present), the taxi cab drivers in San Francisco and the call for a "Basic Guaranteed Income" are all highly related and provide for us a great lesson and insight into the economics and political motivation of the basic guaranteed income.

The argument for a "basic guaranteed income" (BGI) is that as technology and science progresses, more and more human jobs will become obsoleted and replaced by automation and robotics.  This presents the paradox that goods and services are still being produced, but without jobs people have no income to buy said goods and services.  Therefore, as robots replace humans (leaving them no income) we should guarantee all humans with a "basic income" allowing them to afford the basic necessities in life.

However, for this argument to have integrity there must be absolutely NO JOBS available for the displaced human labor.  I've argued before that this simply isn't true as no matter how much technology advances there will be two forms of employment:

1.  The "vanity services" where humans serve other humans (waiters, masseuses, prostitutes, authors, entertainers, servants, etc.) and
2.  The robotic support industry (the STEM professionals who keep this progressively roboticized economy going).

However, my argument aside, history provides enough of an argument to debunk the pro-BGI claims.  No matter how much technology advances, there are always completely new industries, replete with jobs that replaces the old ones.

Horse and buggy manufacturers were simply replaced with auto-manufacturers.
Phone manufacturers were replaced by smart phone producers.
And employees at the vinyl shop were merely replaced with IT employees allowing for MP3 recording.

In other words, this "creative destruction" didn't replace humans as much as it forced them to be innovative and creative in other endeavors as it replaced and obsoleted previous technologies.

But that's the key thing - forced humans to be innovative and creative.  And a lot of humans plain don't like that.

Some humans, when facing obsolescence simply do the adult thing and accept this reality.  They move on, learn a new skill or trade, start over again, reinventing themselves earning living.  Some humans go so far as to become entrepreneurs, capitalizing on ideas and revolutions in the economy, providing employment and higher standards of living for others.  But then there are some who are so delusional, so arrogant, so self-centered, they actually believe that the real world should not advance without their authorization.  And if the world "dares" to progress to the point it obsoletes their careers, then the world indeed "owes them a living."

These people constitute a parasitic class that can only be described as lazy and entitled.  The union worker who demands his pension despite the company going bankrupt.  The person who gets laid off and decides to go on the permanent government dole.  Or the pouty school administrator that gets fired by a gracious and generous early retirement severance.  These people are economically worthless individuals, providing nothing of net economic value to society at all.

But while these people may be economically worthless, at least these people have the good graces to get the hell out of the way and let society advance.  They just want their check and they're happy (or at least as happy as these miserable humans can be).  Sadly, there's an even more despicable group of people that make these veritable economic parasites look noble as they are so arrogant, so self-centered, and so egomanical they not only demand recompense, but they demand the rest of the world stop and not advance without them.

And that's where the San Francisco taxi cab drivers come in.

Technologies like Lyft and Uber have obsoleted taxi cabs.  They are now officially an inferior service.  Like the record companies, the book publishers, and the horse and buggy industry they should accept this fact and either adapt by becoming Uber/Lyft providers themselves or find a new industry to work in.

However, taxi cab drivers are not only entitled, they're evil.  And I'm not saying that as a pejorative, but as a descriptive.  San Francisco taxi cab drivers are evil because instead of letting society advance, letting the people of San Francisco enjoy higher standards of living (which is what the whole point and purposes of technology and economic advancement is), they threw a temper tantrum and held the city hostage by causing traffic jams with their cars. In no uncertain words, these few people view themselves MORE IMPORTANT than the rest of society and have no problems holding back, nay punishing these people for daring to aspire for a better life.

Of course taxi cab drivers are not the only example of this.  Chicago's infamous toll roads with their manually stationed tolls were so heavily unionized that the metro population of Chicago was held hostage WAAAAY past the point in time traffic scanning technology made such tolls obsolete.  The public schools and higher education are another example of unneeded, worthless, obsoleted humans that have no moral qualms holding children hostage in ransom for "more money for schools."  And I never tire of the dinosaur publishing houses stammer their little feet as they (futilely) try to stop self-publishers.

Regardless, the point is that human nature is pathetic.  And the proponents of the BGI know this and are banking on it.  For if a soon-to-be-obsoleted-human is given the choice:

a.  Start anew, learn new skills and participate in the new and revolutionized economy
b.  Collect a check
c.  Not only collect a check, but demand society never be allowed to advance so I can save my ego by keeping my unneeded job

most humans are so lazy, and some so egotistical, they'll choose either b or c. 

And that is what truly is behind the drive for the BGI.

The BGI is not something that is "noble" or "compassionate."  It is not something that is "caring" or "kind."  It is a blatant attempt by socialists and leftsits in academia and government to buy votes by placating the laziness, ego, and self-centeredness of a progressively worthless human population.  They are merely presenting the false premise that "creative destruction" does not exist (ergo, there will be "no jobs"), while knowing full well the average American schlep is to proud, too ego-filled to work the menial service jobs that will exist, and too lazy to train for the STEM jobs that would also exist.

But where the real evil comes in is where I predict there will be a "third category" of jobs - "ego employment."  Jobs that are not only unnecessary, but hold society back by either denying society the ability to progress, or at minimum taxing them to create make-work jobs, ALL of which are simply to save the ego of a voting constituent.

It does indeed make the parasite who merely collects a government check look noble.

Post post - a reader recommended this.  "Player Piano" a book where in the near future everything is mechanized and there is a struggle between the scientific and management classes that keep the machines running and the unskilled people who have no jobs. 

Post post post - looks like there's going to be some automation in the Bakken oil field with drones and roboticized trucks following a lead truck. How much you want to bet the teamsters will get in the way of you getting cheaper gas?

Here's How You Stop Rape, Ladies

I didn’t wait 15 years, or 25, or 45.  I got in my car and drove immediately over to the police station and told them what happened.  I had a rape kit done, photos taken, and gave my statement.  He was arrested, and eventually jailed.  He is still in jail, thank goodness.  He wasn’t hard to find.  Everyone knew him.  I guess he didn’t think that I would go to the police, and do so as quickly as I did, because when they arrested him he still had remnants of my DNA on him.

 I'll just say it again for the cheap seats because I know the current hubbub about rape is not about "rape" as much as it is a power-grab from miserable feminists to fund their "women's shelter" programs on various campuses.

The Time Cappy Got Stuck in a Poetry Slam

(This is a book review, but the story I use to introduce it might be of some entertainment value)

There are only a few things I genuinely loathe and hate in this world.

One is split pea soup.  No matter how much bacon you put in it, you are not going to get me to drink that 70's carpet green slop.

Two is theater.  I do not like theater.  I've attended more than several at the behest and begging of women and without fail they merely made me wish I hadn't wasted my life attending.

And the third is poetry.

I remember a long time ago an elderly Jewish friend of mine who would pay me to be his sober cab and I'd chauffeur him around the Twin Cities in the pursuit of younger women and booze.  We were reasonably successful because he was charming and had decent game, but his skills unfortunately landed us in, of all things, a....

poetry slam.

He had hooked up with some young 20 something liberal arts type girls and they invited us to see them and their colleagues perform at some fleeting shithole some idiot artist tried to make a profitable "art business" out of on 1st Avenue in DT Minneapolis.  We walked in and sure enough every imaginable stereotype was confirmed.  Women with pits you knew weren't shaved.  Men who would lose a fight against the women if there were to be a "Wrestlemania" in the venue.  And above all else the poetry.

Oh the poetry.

I'd rather drink the 70's green split pea soup slop.

Nothing intelligent.  Nothing insightful.  And always, always, always political.

Add to that these 20 somethings (who no doubt were still living off of a subsidy from their parents) waxed poetically in such an arrogant, self-absorbed manner over garbage that would thankfully never be remembered by the world, and it was the biggest waste of time I ever spent trying to chase tail.  Never would I ever attend a "poetry slam" again.

Inevitably I couldn't take it anymore because it WAS torturing my brain.  So I excused myself, told my elderly Jewish buddy to call me when he needed me to pick him up, and headed to Lee's Liquor Lounge in the hopes of finding an ingot of a babe I may have missed the past 40 times.

Regardless, the point is I HATE poetry.  I've never liked it, and I doubt I ever will.  So you can imagine my joy when I was asked to review "The End of Ideology" a book by Blair Naso of ROK fame.

I was honest with him saying my time would have to be compensated for reading poetry and that I was not a fan of the genre at all.  But still, he agreed and I read through a sampling of the book he sent me.  And for split pea soup, it ain't bad.

Naturally if you're like me and DON'T like poetry, this is not the book for you.  But if you are more of the artistic nature and DO like poetry, you will certainly want to spend the money on this instead of the cover charge for SJW, leftist, feminist, emo infested poetry slam.

It is written by a young man, and thusly many of the poems will relate to men.  His "Online Dating" poem is pretty funny, "Daddy's Little Girl" is hilarious though dark, and I did enjoy the "Story from the Tavern."  But there are also some dark and effective poems such as "I Killed a Man Today" the somberness, directness, and lack of emotion I very much appreciated.

Still, not my cup of tea, but if there are any poetry aficionados out there of the male persuasion, I'd strongly recommend Mr. Naso's work.

Book Review - "The Uncivil War" by Taleeb Starkes

In preparation and research for my upcoming book "The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty" I knew full well that even though I knew enough about economics, poverty, finance, and investing, I did not have the sociological, psychological, political or philosophical experiences of your average black man.  To that end I enlisted the help various Black Agents in the Field of the Capposphere, but also purchased a book that was recommended by an individual I can't remember, "The Uncivil War" written by Taleeb Starkes

I was looking forward to reading it because it had what seemed to be the combination of what I need.  A black author, who grew up in the ghetto, who saw the light, and could convey to me not just the black male perspective, but the path of his thinking that led him out of poverty.  This would then allow me to write some of the "transitional chapters" of my book from an educated standpoint, making a compelling argument that was relateable to my intended audience.

There was just one minor problem - it is the harshest thing I've ever read, making it overly harsh even for my extreme tastes.

The author makes no bones about it and purposely wrote it as such.  "Nigger" (and nearly a score of permutations of the word) is by FAR the most common word in the book (and even in the subtitle).  He mocks, berates, yells at, ridicules, and antagonize the segment of the black population he considers not blacks, but "niggers," and continues on for another 240 screeding and screaming pages.  There were certainly segments and sections that were helpful for my purposes, but it quickly became obvious he doesn't care to solve the problems through an olive branch, but by identifying, villainizing and shaming the "nigger" subsegment of the black community out of existence.  In other words, it is a damning testament and outright attack against ghetto or thug culture, indifferent if they actually listen, turn themselves around, or improve (he even has a letter at the end of the book dedicated as a "Memorandum to Niggers" where he explicitly says so).

While this may not have terribly helped in my research, it did provide some interesting ancillary benefits.  One, you really do realize just what a show or a farce the ghetto/thug culture is.  From believing your "independent" while collecting government checks, to buying designer clothes with money you don't have, to spending a prerequisite time in jail to earn "street cred" and "keep it real," it isn't anything to be glorified or envied.  It's just a parasitic culture living off of the rest of the community.  And the great lengths these delusional people go to convince themselves would be funny, if it were not so pathetic.  Two, you realize the helplessness of it all.  People are consciously choosing this life and not only choosing it, but protecting it even if it hurts them.  Mr. Starkes cites multiple news articles in his book where a shooting, a beating, or some other such crime SPECIFICALLY WITHIN AND AGAINST the black community occurs, but "magically" there are no witnesses.  Alas just as there are no "public witnesses" that corroborated the officer's account of the Marcus Brown killing, and thus many good people get to fear lawlessness living in the likes of Ferguson.  But, three, even though many aspects of the book were depressing, hearteningly, there were some optimistic insights into the book.  For example there IS definitely a group of people (simply referred to as "blacks" by Mr. Starkes) who are law abiding citizens.  They want a better life, they do not hate whites or males, they are willing to work, and they LOATHE the costs they pay in terms of "black on black crime" or the "The Black Tax."  Another example is how despite all their bravado and puffing of chests, thugs are indeed afraid of well armed, law abiding citizens in safe neighborhoods simply because such citizens WILL call the cops and WILL defend their territory.  And yet another example was how thug culture is not "misunderstood" or "disadvantaged", but is indeed evil, deserving of hate, giving rise to the hope the rest of society might shame it like we do cancer or any other scourge of society.  It was insights like these that made the book worth reading.

Still, these observations and insights aside, the book falls short if there was any underlying attempt to win over blacks who are sitting on the fence, and will certainly win no converts from Starkes' "nigger" category.  It will simply enrage them.  But, again, Starkes writing indicates he'd rather exterminate the thug culture than convert it and that's where his and my aims differ.  Perhaps "The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty" may win a few more converts than his book...perhaps even some converts that are merely younger versions of him.  For Mr. Starkes admits that he too was once part of that ghetto culture.

You can find his book here at Amazon.

Undermining Private Property

Permit yourself a bit of intellectual freedom.

And when I say "intellectual freedom," I mean for once just let your mature, logical, intellectually honest adult mind enjoy some thought without

1.  Worrying about how leftists would respond
2.  Worrying about how you'd defend this against leftists
3.  Pulling up arguments tendered by the left that I would have to address should I wish to waste another second of my finite life doing so.

Just, for once, enjoy a true intellectual experience in economics where you are allowed to dedicate 100% of your thoughts towards the topic at hand, allowing us to have an adult conversation uninhibited or impaired with the childish and regressive brains of socialists.

Got rid of those concerns?

Good, here we go.

Private property, without a doubt, is one of, if not "the" most important thing when it comes to having economic growth and success.  The reason is very simple - in order to incent people to work hard and thus produce economic growth they need to be allowed to keep the vast majority of the fruits of their labor.  If they aren't they have no incentive to forfeit their finite and precious time in the form of labor because, frankly, it's nothing more than slavery.

We can see this not only in something as obvious as slavery, but even in communist or near-communist states.  If I am taxed at 100% then what incentive do I have to work?  And even if I'm taxed at 0%, but can't buy property or own anything, then I might as well have no income.  This simple 5th grade logic is not only understood by...well...5th graders, but it has also played out empirically in the history of the world with the handful of communist regimes coming into existence...putting their populations into decades-worth of misery...before collapsing...but not without first killing more people in peacetime than any war ever could.

Because of this private property presents the greatest economic threat and greatest economic potential to the world's free societies.  Do you protect it, enshrine it, defend it and advocate it as much as possible?  Or do you punish it, destroy it, confiscate it, criminalize it, excoriate it and tax it as much as possible?  The difference is the unrivaled economic success of the west and, well, the rest of the world.

To those of us capable of long term planning, delayed gratification, post-stage-one thinking, morality, or who just give a damn about the future of society (not to mention, know a little history), we are obviously huge champions of private property.  But for those incapable of delayed gratification, post-stage-one thinking, morality or long term planning, the temptation of merely confiscating other people's property for their own personal advancement is just too tempting.  And thus the problem facing democratic countries today - there's just too many of the later with the right to vote.

This has resulted in an interesting phenomenon where there's a tug of war between what I like to call the "producers" and the "parasites" because that's what they truly are.  The "left" votes for more of other people's money, while the "right" merely votes to keep what's theirs.  And thusly taxation levels ebb and flow in the western world from between 33% on the low end to 60% on the high end.

But before you celebrate paying "only" 36% of your property here in the US, it's important to clear the gunk from our eyes and take a fresh look at precisely what is "private property" and precisely how it is being undermined here in the US and elsewhere.

First, to any self-respecting individual, forking over nearly 40% of your life, wealth and labor to a state where 70% of it merely goes to bribe the parasites into voting for more of it is enraging.  Emotional and intellectually dishonest arguments from the left aside, you don't owe 14 years of your 50 year career being a literal slave to other people too lazy to work.  So right off the bat, the fact 36% of your life is being confiscated is enough to show you property private is being undermined.

Second, the sheer amount of effort that goes into obfuscating just how much of your property is being taken.  When people think "property taxes" they usually think real estate.  And usually this is such a finite example most people understand the fact you don't technically own your property because you perpetually rent it from the state (worse still, even the presumedly conservative North Dakotans went full-sheeple and refused permit themselves to TRULY own their own homes).  But the truth of the matter is people do not understand precisely what property is.  For it is not your house or your land or even the assets within your home.

Property in it's purest form is your time.

I've addressed this before, but there really is no such thing as your house or your XBox or your car.  These are things merely composed and purchased with human time.  You exchange your time in the form of labor for some "money."  This "money" is nothing more than a tool, a claim on other people's time.  You then pay various people to build you a home, a car or an XBox One.  In short there would be no property, there would be no assets, if there was no human time.  Ergo, "property" IS your time and what you do with it.  Typically "what you do with it" is either generate income or purchase assets.  Therefore the cash in your bank account, the stocks in your brokerage account, the food in your fridge, and the house the fridge is sitting, EVERYTHING you've earned, made or saved by forfeiting your time is property.

What this means is that ALL taxation is on property.  The divisions between "capital gains tax," "income tax," "sales tax," "dividend tax," and "estate tax" are merely semantics, obscuring and obfuscating the truth - that all taxes are taxes on your finite and limited time on this planet.  All taxes are on your life via the tangible property you converted that life into.  However, because people rarely think of property as they way they should, they remain clueless as to just how much their private property is undermined (much like normal people are clueless how withholding taxes work).

Finally, even if you did own your property outright, and there were no taxes on its creation, ownership, purchase or sale, the state further undermines private property in one huge regard - regulation.

Tell property owners who were willing to sell "their" to the Keystone pipeline they own it.
Tell Duluth Metals they owned the $100 billion mine in Ely, Minnesota when the regulators constantly denied permits to drill.
And tell any home owner in the "republicanny" suburbs that they can build their own home without having some bored, tyrannical soccer mom or trophy wife city council member force a million unnecessary codes down their throats.

Even if you could theoretically and economically "own" your property good luck being able to use it as you see fit with a state that ultimately deems it "theirs."

The consequences of all this undermining and destruction of private property are what most of my readers can guess.  There is slower economic growth.  Less domestic investment.  More capital flightLower labor force participation.  And a general stagnation in standards of living.  But it is important to know precisely, economically why, especially in the most simplified of terms - taxation in all of its forms is ultimately a tax on your ultimate private property - your finite life.  And when people's lives are taxed, especially when used to pay for other people's lives, the deterrence to economic production is great and the economy suffers as it should.

Another Damn Fine Podcast from the Black Brigade

Another damn fine podcast by DT and the Man.

Plus some lazy Sunday linkage:

American Liberalism in particular has become nothing more than a secular religion based on so many leaps of faith it makes Islam and Christianity seem rational by comparison.

And another one from Ed.

Keep lowering the bar instead of treating them like equals.

From Our Black Agent in the Field

In my research for The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty I get some consultation and commentary from our agents in the field that I deem worth sharing.  This is one of those instances where you get to see the trail a man has traveled and appreciate the thought process, but also the adherence to intellectual honesty and reality.

My beliefs did not change until around 2012 when I was around 26. It wasn’t a Road to Damascus type of moment, rather it was gradual. I have the personality type of always wanting to be logically consistent, wanting to be right, open to differing beliefs and finding the truth. However, I was always open to the possibility of being wrong about something and was willing to change my views. Therefore, while I had left wing views, I tried to logically defend them and limited name calling of opponents.

I was interested in economics as a college student and was always critical of Marxism and state ownership of capital. My left wings views gravitated more to left wing anarchism. I knew that Marxism didn’t work, however I thought there was something better than the free market.

After being exposed to the manosphere and reading “The Myth of Male Power” by Warren Farrell and  “Who Stole Feminism?” by Christina Hoff Sommers, I learned about the flaws of feminism. I thought to myself, “if The Left is wrong about Marxism and Feminism and these are two of the leading ideologies of The Left, what else are they wrong about?” The answer to that question is almost everything.

As previously mentioned, I liked to read so I decided to read writers on The Right. I started reading Thomas Sowell, who has a reputation in the black community as being an Uncle Tom and an apologist of racism. The first books I read by him were “Basic Economics”, “Civil Rights: Rhetoric or Reality” and “Economic Facts and Fallacies”. His arguments were persuasive and I finished reading those books thinking to myself “holy shit, he’s right!” I read other free market economic books solidifying in my mind that the free market was the best economic system. If anything, those books demolished popular notions of the left e.g. we are tabula rasas, differences in outcome are solely due to discrimination, government is the solution, etc.

It also seemed to me that liberal policies did not work. Every 2-4 years the Democrats would come along call the Republicans racists, blacks would vote for the Democrats and after Election Day, Democrats would not care about issues affecting the black community. It was a predictable cycle. However, blacks would not vote for Republicans because they were seen as racists. Nothing really changed their minds since Republicans did not seem interested in getting the black vote anyway. I still cannot think of three liberal policies that have actually improved the lives of blacks.
I also looked at the results. The most liberal cities in the United States were all upper middle class and white with high rents (due to rent control) ensuring that the poor and minorities couldn’t live there e.g. San Francisco, Washington DC, Seattle, or lower income, filled with crime, poor schooling and mostly if not virtually all black or Hispanic, Detroit, Gary, IN, Chicago, etc. Cities under Democratic control the longest (e.g. Detroit) had the worst results. Liberal policies did not create the diverse, crime free, equal utopias that they promised. They seemed to care only about intentions. I had a debate a year ago with my white liberal roommate about the minimum wage. I argued that the minimum wage caused unemployment. He did not seem to care about the actual impact, only about the good intentions. And that is how liberals argue, based on their intentions, they do not care about the actual impact of these policies.

It is my belief that there is no such thing as an honest liberal, because if an honest liberal exists, then over time, he will eventually become libertarian or conservative.

I’m just ranting now. I hope that helps.

Feminism Thrives on the Absolute Value of Attention

It is now a daily event, if not twice a day event, I get an e-mail about the latest antics of feminism and female leftists. It is so common and so bizarre that not only am I no longer shocked, but I come to expect it.  I also tire of writing about it because it's as if you're getting bum rushed with a tidal wave of non-stop, never-ending, feminist crazy and hate.  Merely pointing it out and citing it as an example of just how evil and damaging these people are seemingly does nothing to stop them, let alone raise the country's awareness to this genuine and real cancer in society.

Because of this I've eschewed highlighting the latest "crazy feminist" and dedicated my time to more productive things.  However, as my brain is wont to do, I looked past the crazy and finally figured out what is driving it.  And it is the female desire for attention.

Take a look at the latest or more common "antics" of feminism.

There's your standard slut walks.
There's the obsession with creating new genders
There's Lena Dunham's child molestation which feminists have the gall to defend.
And let's not forget the "zaniest" antic yet, menstrual painting.

Any sane person who can remove him/herself from the political horseblinders, step back and look at these things will accurately and truthfully assess these things for what they are - a mental illness. 

These are not sane women "expressing their opinion," or "liberating themselves."  They are mentally damaged individuals that need (but are perhaps beyond) help.  The only reason they get away with it is they hide behind "feminism" and people's fear if they criticize them they'll be accused of (GASP!) sexism.  And so society must tolerate this scourge on itself. 

However, if we look under the hood we see what's really going on. 

Women, feminist or not, are driven primarily by one thing - attention.  Attention from society so that it may secure them social acceptance and security within society as well as the resources from a male provider.

Mentally healthy women do this by being good at socializing, perhaps pursuing a career in a legitimate field, but when it comes to finance and romance, they secure a husband by being as pretty as possible, staying in shape, and using their beauty.  This take effort and hard work.

Working out
Dieting
Being attentive to her husband
Offering something of value to anybody who would court/marry/interact with her

They know it's an exchange and if they're to succeed in life, they will have to work at it, offering something of value that is in demand.

However, mentally UNHEALTHY women fail to do this.  They do not want to put in the effort to be beautiful, attractive, productive or just generally offering something of value to society.  They are narcissists believing they are entitled to the same standards of living and success as their mentally healthy, harder-working counterparts.  And this goes a long way explaining why:

Feminists tend to be ugly
Feminists tend to be angry
Feminists (despite their claim of independence) invariably demand some form of government support or charity

They are just too damn lazy to work out, work hard, let alone be altruistic enough to think about what other people want.

Now, the problem facing feminists, despite their demands (and relative success in getting) for government money, is that society, especially men just refuse to go along.  Yes, the government can tax me, but I don't have to hire you and your worthless Gender Studies Degree.  Yes, the government can make me pay for your fatherless child's school lunch, but it can't make me date you.  And so while they may receive a government check, that is all they get.  The rest of society rejects them.

The problem for feminists is that deep down inside, no matter what they tell themselves and how many mind-warping classes they take, they're still women.  And women are genetically programmed to live off of attention.  And since society is not giving them any "good attention" (in the form of men being attracted to them, being invited to clubs, getting job offers in real careers, etc.) they have to go and get "bad attention."  And thus their insane, mentally-ill antics.

In being so outlandish with their demands, actions, behaviors and antics, they automatically beget attention from society.  Of course it's not of a healthy or good variety - it's disgust and revulsion.  But at least it's attention.  Add to it the fact this attention is critical of their antics, it plays directly into their deluded world of being "oppressed" and "patriarchy," giving credit and agency to their one and only thing they have in life - their religion, feminism.  But no matter what elaborate mental acrobatics they execute, let us be clear what all this is - nothing but attention whoring.

This leads me to the final conclusion of my little epiphany:

What if we were to just not pay any attention to the latest disgusting, "cutting-edge" attention-whoring gimmick feminists come up with next?  Instead of ROK, and Uncle Bern linking to or talking about some idiot article at XO Jane or Salon we just talked philosophy instead?  Instead of me linking to another spoiled, delusional 25 year old Manhattan nepotist daughter feminist writing for NBC, I just threw up some economic charts instead?  What if we just took out all the oxygen in the room and deprived these feminists of the attention they so desperately desire?

No doubt this is impossible as in a country of 300 million "menstrual painting" is going to prove too tempting to resist criticizing for 275 million.  But my larger point is one of accurately identifying the problem so that we may find an effective solution.  Shaming them only fans their flames and allows them to self-rationalize being a "victim."  Ignoring them, however, deprives them of the only interaction they get from the rest of the sane, healthy, and happy world.  Leaving them with a government check and each other to squander their lives on.

Emotional Prostitution

A very interesting interview/podcast by Matt Forney where he interviews Chloe Luv, a phone sex operator about her profession.  What's particularly interesting is how men use her services more for emotional and psychological support than sex, providing a unique psychological insight into the world of quasi-prostitution.

On a related note, original posts will be a little sparse until I'm done writing "The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty."  Regular hate-filled ranty charty economic goodness will continue once the book is done.

Silver and Gold are NOT Investments

Originally set out to make a video to point out how gold and silver are not investments, but it become a much more important overall lesson about precisely what is an "investment" versus what is speculation.

Absolutely Brilliant

Best political cartoon ever.

Male vs. Female Savings

In Bachelor Pad Economics I flat out state that women are worse with money than men.  They spend more, they spend more on worthless stuff, and they invest less.

And ohhhh the hell did I catch.

Of course I was expecting this because Bachelor Pad Economics was a book based in truth.  And there's no point in time you'll catch more hell than when speaking the truth.

The problem though was that I was going based off of my now-approaching 20 years of researching and studying economics.  Not only does this present the problem that I may have recalled some information incorrectly (and women may actually have been the ones better with their money...HAR HAR HAR!!!), but that this fact may have changed in 20 years.  And so, being the good economist that I am, I went online to the St. Louis Federal Reserve to look up the savings rate for men and women.

Just one minor problem.

They don't break it down between men and women.  Could have swore they did.

This then required that I track down the data that I could have sworn was out there.  And as is many things on the internet, whatever data series I once found was now lost to the fates of time.

Thankfully, I found some relatively new data that proved what I believed to be true.  Women are indeed worse than men when it comes to savings and preparing for retirement.  However, if you're the visual type, here's some nice little charts making the point.



















There were other charts they threw in that were irrelevant but purposely made to make women feel better, but the moral of the story is two fold.

1.  Women need to save more (which I'm sure most female readers of Cappy Cap already know, and probably are doing much better than the average bear when it comes to finances)

2.  For everybody all upset that I dared to say in Bachelor Pad Economics that women had worse finances than men, I'm sorry, it's true.  And I'm not sorry in the slightest truth upsets you.  I find it refreshing actually.

Book Review - Welcome to the Divide

Welcome to the Divide by SP Daley is without a doubt the most unique book I have read in a long time.  It was given to me by Mr. Daley, and like all books I get in the mail I was suspicious if this was going to be a good book, or somebody's half attempt at a book with no clear point or purpose.  It wasn't until I had a flight and knew my cell phone would not last the trip that I broke it out and started reading it.  And I was thankful I did.

At first I was annoyed with his writing style which consisted of the narrator using "etc., etc. etc." excessively and other oddities such as referring to himself in the third person.  Also at the beginning the hero refers to himself as "we" when it is only one person.  If you were under the impression Mr. Daley was a first time author, you'd be within your rights to think he was a 24 year old trying to be "cute" with these antics.  But they are not antics at all, but very much planned and key to the development of the rest of the book.

Once you "get it" and realize the role it plays, the book takes your mind on a truly intellectually engaging exercise.  Not only are you reading a story about a near future-bordering-economic-collapse sort of tale, but one of incredibly deep and heavy philosophy, science, technology, economics and politics.  It also has action which moves the story along, and an incredible amount of creativity when it comes to plot, character development, and surprises.

If this description still leaves you wondering what this book is about, it's because it is that unique and hard to describe.  It is about individualism.  It is about freedom.  But it is also heavily meshed in with psychology, technology and philosophy, making your mind say, "wow, just fucking wow!  I had never thought of that before!"  I also do not want to ruin your reading experience by even running the risk of spoiling any part of the book for you, so am also being purposely vague.  Yes, I did like it that much.

Still there were two drawbacks to the book.

One, sometimes the author gets WAAAAY too in depth about his "binary" theory.  For the reader it's too detailed, but then you have to realize, "holy cow, this guy had to come up with this idea as the author and thought it through to this extent!"  Still, this impression aside may it a bit Ayn Randy with a bit of excessive detail.

Two, the author is too smart.  This meant I had to reread things several times to truly understand what the hero or the antagonist were saying or what was going on.  Between the philosophy, the author's own personal theory, and the neural-networking of human communes that was going on in the book, I at least reread 40 pages of the book to make sense of it.

These minor problems aside, the book is one I recommend as a "must" if you want your brain to be challenged and imbued with new ideas and thoughts.  It may not be for everybody as you might have different tastes than I do, but I have not been that intellectually challenged since college.  You can find "Welcome to the Divide" on Amazon and visit Mr. Daley's site here.


Viva Pinochet!

Calling All Black Lieutenants and Agents in the Field

Greetings Lieutenants!

As many of you know I'm writing "The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty" and it is coming along "swimmingly."

That being said I'm at the part of the book where I cannot speak from authority about economics, finance, politics, etc., and need the advice, recommendations, and input from black men.

Specifically, I am interested in what it is like growing up in the black community and what the blow back is like if you dare to espouse conservative thoughts, libertarian values, question whether socialism is working, etc. etc.  Is there social ostracization, are you accused of "being white" or an "Uncle Tom."  What is done to keep you in line and in check?

I've heard merely anecdotes and stories, but nothing approaching multiple, in depth testimonials that would provide me some information to competently work from.

If you'd be so kind, please feel free to post your thoughts in the comments section or if you wish to remain private, e-mail the ole captain at

Your efforts and observations are appreciated.

Many thanks,

Politics Simplified

Just had to share this one:


American Bachelors' Financial Legacy Problem

Friend #1.

Multi-millionaire, 52 years old, drives a POS import like I do.  Maybe spends $200 a week on social activities.  Gets his clothes from goodwill or the veterans store.  His only goal in life is to enjoy coffee with his older friends while teaching himself French and Mandarin on the internet.

Friend #2.

My pilot buddy you are all familiar with.  Probably worth a couple million.  43 years old, no wife, no kids, and is completely dedicated to his company.  Mentioned something about a family...maybe...probably not...but he's more obsessed about cigars and buying a boat that a wife or rugrats.

Friend #3

Senior pilot who makes over six figures and consults on the side in the aviation world.  No wife, no children, 46 and just hits the gym while traveling the world on his perks.  Owns a nice house in a fine suburb, obsesses over his cash flow even though he is in better financial shape than most any one I know.

Which leads me to my observation.

With more and more men refusing to marry and breed, there is a permanent "Bachelor Class" forming.  However, an interesting aspect of this "Bachelor Class" is that they are without a doubt the most "wealth forming" class in the world.

They have no children.
They have no wives.
They have no divorce.
They have no alimony.
They all make damn good money
and with all that free time
Are pursuing entrepreneurial ventures

And alas, all those variables and traits mean...

They have a ton of cash.

I am not rich by any means, but even with my meager earnings, the fact I have no children or wife means I at least have SOME savings.  Pro-rate that into the future and when I die, heirless, there will still be some significant funds to be bequeathed.

Thus, while everybody is focused on paying off their student loans, getting out from underneath their mortgage, finally closing their alimony, etc. etc.,  there is this "elite" and "numerous" bachelor class that I (conservatively) estimate will have easily $4 trillion in wealth when they die to pass on.

So who, precisely, will inherit it?

Well, that depends.

I personally plan to split my "estate" between my girlfriend who has treated me kindly and a little varmint like creature that has endeared me to her childish antics.

My millionaire real estate friend is so indifferent and complacent he intends to let it fall to the state.

My pilot buddy hasn't thought that far, but that's the whole point...

You bachelors need to think about what you're going to do with the wealth you've obviously built beyond what you can consume.

This is one of those rare problems you "wish you had," but still, your decision today on how to bequeath that money will have an affect on a world that will be after your death.  Ergo, any moral man will want to make the right decision, ensuring his life-time-currency would be put to the most noble use.  Do you donate it to the local "pink ribbon campaign" that has yet to solve...anything?  Do you donate it to the local food shelf to feed people too incompetent to support themselves?  How about your alma mater that will brainwash the youth on rape culture and socialism?  Or do you donate it to some third world African country charity that has never yet solved one problem on that continent?

The answer is very simple.

Give it to close, loved ones you genuinely cherished in life or

burn it.

I don't know about you, but there are very few people that deserve my money, let alone the excess money I've earned through the pain and agony I spent learning to earn such money.  And bar a GENUINE charity like St. Jude's Children's program, I'm going to give it to loved ones in my life who were noble, honest and true.  Since this is such a small list of people and said monies run the risk of spoiling them, that means there would still be a significant amount of money left over.  And with no obviously deserving heir to it, I will most likely burn it.

You must look at what you suffered as an American bachelor.  You're privileged because you're male.  You pay more in taxes for children that aren't yours.  You're accused on sexual harassment if you merely look at a girl.  And you're supposed to work all the hard, risky, dangerous and math-impaired jobs while the opposite number complains about a "wage gap."  It's not just the ungratefulness, but hypocrisy and parasitism of society that disqualifies them from deserving any of this $4 trillion so it's upon you (and all bachelors) to set up a will that ensues the money only goes to deserving people, leaving none for the society that viewed you as a personal financial slave and whipping boy.

It may sound wasteful and insane, and certainly you could find enough deserving people of your post-mortem estate.  But if it comes to it I'd rather have my money burn than give it to some welfare WIC receiving single mom of 4 who thinks she's entitled to 4 decades worth of my toiling.  You must also consider your future finances as such.

The Benefit of the 67% Dead Club

Many of you care/cared about this midterm election of 2014.

I didn't.

And this was the first election I truly didn't care about.

Want to know why?

I'm already dead Blythe.  67% dead to be precise.

Like my stepdad who is about 90%, I also realized that I am on the opposite side of 50%.  My family's genetics is not that great.  Nearly every male has died of cancer, alcoholism or stroke, and if any of us Clarey's make it past 60 it's a god damned miracle. And thus at 40, I'm 67% dead.

This permits me a huge amount of levity, freedom, and intellectual honesty because I no longer have to care.  Naturally, the fact I have no children allows me this levity, but in the end, it is a benefit.  My time on this planet is for the majority, over.  And since I have no children I have no long term vested interest in it or what happens to it.  So I'm allowed the precious gift of merely watching it without the attachment or concern that most of you other people have to it.

I enjoy people suffering.
I enjoy people suffering their mistakes.
I enjoy watching the limitless single moms and dead beat dads of my generation try to scramble and salvage their lives that are beyond repair as they live vicariously through their underperforming children.
I enjoy the liberal arts majors PANICALLY realizing their financial lives are fucked.

It's great!  I cannot think of a better, more poetic justice and gift that life could grant me.  

But the issue is simply this.  How many of you are part of the "50%+ Dead" crowd?

You see, I know a lot of you still hold on, still believe, still hope that western civilization will recoup, recover, and hopefully repopulate this country and other European countries, to bring back some kind of "glorious" industrial empire era of revitalization, but it isn't going to happen.  This one awesome, incredible, TRULY "miracle" of western civilization will be a mere blip in the grand scheme of human history as the savages and ideologues and religious fanatics out-populate us and your (beloved) children.  It's merely a fact, it's merely a consequence, it's merely an actuarial reality. 

But, while you're here and there's nothing you can do about it.  Why don't you at least permit yourselves the favor of enjoying the decline?

Seriously, if you're already half dead, I think you're in the clear.  The United Sates is still strong enough to last another 40 years or so because of the herculean efforts of the WWII generation. And before we get too down on ourselves, let us remind ourselves that most of the world is nowhere near as grand as we are.  China may be growing, Russia may be invading, but in the end, both countries are incredibly corrupt and therefore their currencies flawed.  In short, the US dollar will not suffer a "quick death," but rather an elongated one that you can (hopefully) more or less "bank on."

It's the younger generations that have to worry as they're the ones that are going to be left with the bag.  My non-fellow baby boomers will die in 10 years.  I'll be dead in 20.  But that's only after we've collected TRILLIONS in social security and medicare from their naive asses. And for once I'll grant the baby boomers a bit of forgiveness.  It was the Millennials that voted Obama in twice.  It was them who were pro-socialism.

I say take advantage of them!

They voted to give you more money at their naive expense. You might as well take it.

Ergo, it's great to be 67% dead.  You lived a great life in a great country, with standards of living supplicated and inflated due to government borrowing.  The brilliance is that the youth voted it upon themselves and will pay for our mistakes and their ignorance.

Enjoy that decline people.  Enjoy that freaking decline!
