Is credit failure going to be the end of our families’ finances as we know it?

Functional Financial Socialism. 

That’s what Jim Sinclair of JSMineset says the financial talking heads spread on TV.  Others call it uninformed BS.  I call it nonsense meant to mislead us, to keep true value hidden from the reaches of our minds, so we buy the slop they feed us, with nobody knowing the difference otherwise.  Besides, it’s all they give us.  Financial slop.

None of the Functional Financial Socialists are talking about a Jubilee.  Some of them sort of mention debt forgiveness out of the sides of their mouths, a sort of accidental afterthought, something that can be manipulated from the fringe.  Forgiveness of one’s financial responsibilities sounds like a good idea, but it will personally touch very few of us in reality.  It will go to those who wage the greatest debt; central banks, financial institutions, state and federal pensions.  It always does, in one form or another.  Bailouts, bail-ins, Jubilees.

How low can the U.S. dollar go, and how will our family survive it?

Finances are crazy these days.  You can’t get a decent avocado for under two bucks.  Manufacturers are shrinking bags we buy, reshaping boxes to the smaller side, raising prices, and cutting the ingredients and expense from goods we purchase to feed and clothe our families.  Our family paychecks shrink faster than a tank of fuel on a glycerin burning dragster on a hot summer Texas day.

To make things even more challenging, we’re having a helluva tough time dialing in to financial truth.  It’s tough trying to decipher the information we need from mainstream fictional rubbish, peddled by influencers representing a world that runs recklessly and morally amok, using “fake news” as a cover for the face of corruption and guilt in the global financial industry.  Yet there’s never been a more important time to understand what’s happening to our paychecks, why they are disappearing so fast, and how to find employment and keep it long enough to collect that paycheck.

PART TWO: And then there was some good old American backlash

America took the offensive.

That’s because Nike’s “virtue-signaling” really irritated people in the wrong places.  Only a week after Nike bowed to Chinese Authorities’ demands by halting the sale of a range of shoes in China due to the Japanese designer’s support for Hong Kong protests, the sportswear company has been implicitly banned from Arizona after nixing the launch of its “Betsy Ross Flag” sneakers.

The governor of Arizona flew into a Twitter rant.

God Bless America on this 4th of July.  We could sure use it.

The fireworks and celebration of a great nation on her 243rd birthday are something each one of us can relish in and reflect upon.  We can relish with deep understanding that this nation can truly be great once again.  And we can reflect upon the fact that we have a long ways to go to achieve that elusive greatness, something that probably won’t happen in yours or my lifetimes.
