Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated.

    “…A report released by the Commission on Monday reveals how Neraida LLC, a limited-liability corporation formed by Parker specifically to manage his $9m wedding to singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas, conducted an extensive development project at a private site in the woods at Big Sur that caused soil erosion and endangered local wildlife, all without obtaining local, state, or federal government permits …”

    O’kay, think this through.
    What happens if the Fed tapers at the same time that the Japanese bond market sells off.
    If the carry trade unwinds all those US$ purchased with borrowed Yen will be sold, the USD declines.
    The US govt. bonds purchased by carry traders get sold.
    US stocks purchased with borrowed yen converted to US dollars go down.
    Instead of exporting their deflation the Japanese export inflation.
    And the world takes the event to mean that the USD is done and starts their full scale shift to other reserve currencies.’
    And the dollar starts a secular decline meaning we can start to be an exporter again. As the 30 yr decline in interest rates reverses! The answer to yesterdays bond puzzle!!

    Yes or no?

    Is this the hyperinflation scenario?

    Or is it just the Coors? LOL

    Two things need to be said about wonkblog article. One, this is what is meant by institutional racism. The police know an arrest even for something as “acceptable” as this ruins an African American men and other black men in America’s chances of having a normal life. On your job app it is a kiss of death as a miniscule few will look at why or what and the crap just flows down hill from there. Two this end result is what is known as the industrial prison pipeline. With private jails the incentive is to keep feeding the pipeline for profits. While it effects primarily people of color it can be just a devastating to the Caucasian population if you class is not the right one either. Witness this action by center of state judges in PA otherwise known as cash for kids; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kids_for_cash_scandal.
    For probably too many of the readers here awareness is there of the action but not the consequences as how a many of you even know another African American citizen of the US to discuss this kind of report

    “Recession ended 4 years ago” ???

    Assuming a budget deficit of $ 1 trillion, a $ 15 trilion economy and 2% growth means that without that budget deficit, growth wouldn’t have been at +2% but at (2 – (1/15)=) ~ – 4%.
