Nystrom, the Jap.

Pssst.

Hey.

Tell me something I don't know about you. This is kind of like DP truth or dare, only without the dare. We can do that one later.

Tell me something true about you.

I'll start: If I titled it, I'd call it "Nystrom, the Jap."

- - -

While I am American for the virtue and accident of birth, i.e., having been born on the soil of the Empire, my mother was a citizen of the country of Japan. She worked, as a copytypist (as in, to make copies), for the U.S. Army Occupation of Japan secretarial pool.

Duck And Cover: The Lull Is Breaking, The Storm Is Nigh - David Stockman

"In short, what is happening now is that risk is coming out of hiding; the collateral chains are buckling; the financial time bombs are beginning to explode.

There is nothing especially new about this development—its the third occurrence this century. But there is possibly something different this time around the block.

This time the carnage could be much worse because the most recent tsunami of central bank credit was orders of magnitude larger and more virulent than during the run-up to the Lehman event or the dotcom implosion.

Rand Paul: 'Seems to me, Senator Rubio is acting like an isolationist'


"Senator Marco Rubio believes the embargo against Cuba has been ineffective, yet he wants to continue perpetuating failed policies. After 50 years of conflict, why not try a new approach? The United States trades and engages with other communist nations, such as China and Vietnam. Why not Cuba? I am a proponent of peace through commerce, and I believe engaging Cuba can lead to positive change.

Miracles do happen. My neocon dad spent 2 hours watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube.

I have no idea why, but my Dad started watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube yesterday. I was in the living room a few feet away, and imagine my surprise when I heard Ron Paul's appearance on The View playing from Dad's computer speakers. He hates The View, and until yesterday, I was pretty sure he hated Ron Paul because Fox News told my Dad Ron Paul was anti-military (sigh). Just a couple of days ago he was lamenting the millions of GOP voters who stayed home rather than vote for Romney.

Ukrainian Soldier Confirms: Ukrainian Military Shot Down Malaysian MH17 Plane

A Ukrainian soldier who was part of the crew that operated the supposed missile-battery that the Ukrainian Government claims shot down the Malaysian MH17 airliner on July 17th has testified publicly for the first time, saying that the missile-battery was operated by the Ukrainian military, not by the rebels as asserted, and that he and his former crew-mates who operated it laughed when they heard their Government say that this missile-battery was operated by rebels and had shot the airliner down.

Can you create a ripple without a cause?

We've all seen a stone thrown into the water create ripples across the entire pond. And the ripples keep on going across the entire universe.

That is what that whole Beatles song was about, Across the Universe. Jai guru deva om" (जय गुरुदेव ॐ), which roughly translates to: "Glory to the shining remover of darkness!"

The Problem With Police

I can't with full conscience blame the police totally for all the incidents that have recently taken place. From the killing of twelve year old Tamir Rice in Ohio, to the actions taken against protesters during Occupy Wall Street, the police are not the only ones to blame. I would even go further and say the police have very little blame placed upon them. The politicians are the ones to blame for one hundred percent of the events that have taken place these last few years. Sure, the police have some responsibility in a moral aspect to respect their fellow man and women by refusing to comply with the orders demanded by politicians even if that sacrifices their jobs. We the people also are to blame for demanding government do something about everything and not demanding them to do nothing about something.

Politicians are elected to govern within the restrictions set by the federal and state constitutions. For the last few decades or more, politicians have violated that restriction for political gain. They want the people to see that they are doing something. When something horrible happens, the politicians are right there to promise new laws and restrictions and the people allow this to happen.

The issue today with all these incidence involving police is a direct consequence of years of laws that are nonsense. From the war on drugs to the attempted soda ban, these are "laws" that create conflict. The politicians write the "laws" and they send the police to do their dirty work. Naturally, the ones who are seen as aggressors will hold the blame such as the police are now, and the politicians who caused the aggression will use the situation to their advantage when the people cry for them to do something, which is also happening now.

Jim Grant: "The Fed Has A 3rd Mandate... The Administration Of American Equity Prices"

Having recently given us a two paragraph synopsis of all that is wrong with our financial market faith in fed officialdom, Jim Grant unleashes his critical wit and insight on CNBC to explain the Fed's new remit, as Bill Dudley recently explained, "the administration of American equity prices." The Fed will find it difficult to raise rates - both technically (for reasons we have explained in detail previously) and "they will find many blocks in the way having to do with financial markets' reaction." Simply put, the Fed wants to raise rates but mostly it wants peace and quiet, which it does not have: "The Fed is America's central bank but it is the steward of the world's currency," and as Grant concludes, "it is raining currencies around the world... and the Fed must be cognizant of that."
