–Would you give a child or a fool a loaded gun? You already have.

Mitchell’s laws:
●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor,
which ultimately leads to civil disorder.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive,
and the motive is the gap.

Would you hand a child or a fool a loaded gun? No? What if the child or fool claimed their 2nd Amendment rights and the Supreme Court said, “Well, in that case, O.K.”?

If you take perverse delight in monkeys and idiots doing really, really stupid things, you’ll enjoy these first few installments of GunFAIL. [At the time of this writing, there have been 74 (!) installments.]

And, if you want to see even more stupidity, Google “gunfail” followed by the appropriate Roman numeral.

Not included, is the stupidest act of all: Newly misrepresenting the 2nd Amendment to mean that any fool can carry a loaded gun, anywhere. (Forget “well-regulated militia“.)

Thank you, our current Supreme Court, right-wing edition.










Do you feel safer, now?

Monetary Sovereignty

Ten Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D plus long term nursing care — for everyone (Click here)
3. Provide an Economic Bonus to every man, woman and child in America, and/or every state a per capita Economic Bonus. (Click here) Or institute a reverse income tax.
4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone. Click here
5. Salary for attending school (Click here)
6. Eliminate corporate taxes (Click here)
7. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually
8. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99% (Click here)
9. Federal ownership of all banks (Click here)

10. Tax the very rich (.1%) more, with higher, progressive tax rates on all forms of income. (Click here)


10 Steps to Economic Misery: (Click here:)
1. Maintain or increase the FICA tax..
2. Spread the myth Social Security, Medicare and the U.S. government are insolvent.
3. Cut federal employment in the military, post office, other federal agencies.
4. Broaden the income tax base so more lower income people will pay.
5. Cut financial assistance to the states.
6. Spread the myth federal taxes pay for federal spending.
7. Allow banks to trade for their own accounts; save them when their investments go sour.
8. Never prosecute any banker for criminal activity.
9. Nominate arch conservatives to the Supreme Court.
10. Reduce the federal deficit and debt

No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.
Two key equations in economics:
1. Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
2. Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports

Monetary Sovereignty Monetary Sovereignty

Vertical gray bars mark recessions.

As the federal deficit growth lines drop, we approach recession, which will be cured only when the lines rise. Federal deficit growth is absolutely, positively necessary for economic growth. Period.

  1. Sounds as if these folk are the rootinest, tootinest gunslingers this side of the Pecos, even if they only shoot themselves or family members. If Obama decided to “take their guns” I wonder if these patriots could fend off the BATF, much less the US Army. I lived in Canada for 5 years and have dual citizenship. I returned to the US because my investments and pension (from the Railroad Retirement Board – I’m a “taker”) are in US dollars and living here made more financial sense. Politically Canada is MUCH more civilized; none of the sort of garbage we allow as normal discourse in govt. would pass muster with anyone there – not even the blue collar workers.


  2. The public is irrational regarding guns.

    On YouTube there are countless videos of armed guys walking around in public, exercising their “open carry rights,” or their “second amendment rights.” Some of these people are heavily armed with a couple of pistols, a rifle, and maybe a shotgun for good measure. The YouTube videos show cops stopping such people and checking them out. The videos purport to show how people are “harassed” for “exercising their rights.”

    The irrational part is this…

    When one of these armed guys kills a bunch of people, the public cries, “Where were the police? Why didn’t they stop this guy and check him out?”

    Looked at another way, before there is a mass shooting, the gun nuts complain about “big government.” After there is a mass shooting, the guns nuts ask, “Why didn’t the government protect us?”

    Guns keep the peasants distracted. While average people argue with each other about gun rights, and sometimes shoot each other, the 1% rob them all.

    Guns keep the peasants submissive (ironically). Many people imagine that as long as they carry a gun, they will somehow be provided for, no matter how impoverished they become. Hence they for more austerity, since right-wing politicians champion their (imaginary) source of support, namely their guns.


  3. There is yet one more gap–the physical “distance” between the 1% and the rest of us. They can no doubt look down from their hilltop mansion while we 99.9% kill ourselves trying to make in their system, in their factories, and on the battle grounds of the world where they provide us with their beautifully designed weapons to perpetuate and instigate long lasting CIA wars in the name of national (their) security.

    This works well in a system founded on scarcity which in turn guarantees continued aggre$$ion here and abroad. I don’t think guns are the problem; they are the resultant, not the cause.

    The cause is the scare city model first inspired long ago by Thomas Malthus and his world wide preindustrial calculation that the growth of population was geometrical while food production was increasing only arithmetically.

    The pre-industry condition is now in complete reverse. We may move on to caring for all and still having plenty leftover, like the biblical story of the loaves and fishes. I would also suspect that once everyone is secure in the knowledge that scarcity has been banished as the basis of all economic philosophy, everyone will start to RELAX and get off of everyone else’s case and, yes, drop their guns once and for all, except of course for innocent hunting and target practice.

    The gun industry and the military-industrial complex are micro-macro cousins. They MUST have violence, insecurity and fear; therefore, they must keep scarcity alive.

    To this day, fundamental scarcity remains taught in academia, just as non-monetary sovereignty is. It’s all connected. The Dark Ages still reign. Guns are an outgrowth.


  4. Finally, after customers protested, loudly and clearly:

    “Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create.”1
    – John Mulligan, Target CEO

    My quest is, if bringing guns into Target is: “at odds with family friendly shopping and work experience,” what is carrying guns in the street?

    Answer: At odds with human intelligence and basic civility — which is why the stupid and uncivil do it.
