Recession? What Recession?

Well, I'm sure most of you have been hearing for the last couple months that America is in a recession. The world is coming to an end because the sky is falling. Doom and gloom always makes the headlines, but when things prove not to be a doom and gloom scenario, you'll probably miss out. The American economy is not in a recession.

I thought I'd share a few things on this topic because the scary recession will always peak headlines in the future. It is best to think of this in an individual person in the economy. That's the best way to look at things. Do you think a person would voluntarily decide to produce less and make less money on their own? No! Of course not. So there is no reason to believe a working economy would recess itself.

The only way a recession can be started is from ignorant policies which end up being forced on individuals in the market place. The only entity that can force ignorant policies onto individuals is the government. Has much changed with regards to the way the government allows business to be done in America? Not really. There is no need to think that the economy would go into a recession.

That's not to say there are a lot of little things that need to be fixed. We are at the mercy of fiat currency and the government regulators that control the supply, excessive regulations and taxes on business, and taxes individuals pay. With all that you just can't paint a doom and gloom picture.

Every time I hear the "doom and gloom" scenario, I always look out the window and everything is exactly the same as the "booms". Nothing is different. When you goto the grocery stores and there isn't enough food on the shelves for you to feed your family, than you can start crying "doom and gloom".

Recession? There is no recession. Free markets move forward because that is what they do.

The Pros And Cons of Capitalism

I thought I'd do a post on the pros and cons of capitalism. I think it is pretty apparent that capitalism is the best social system in existence and the only one that follows good moral values, such as individual freedom.

The Pros of Capitalism
You are free to make your own choices (right or wrong) in the market place.You own your life and the means to produce for your life.You can choose to run your own business or get a job with ease of government regulation.As a consumer, you get the highest quality of products for the cheapest prices.As a consumer, you get the highest variety of the types of goods and services you can purchase.You are free to innovate and invent without the government getting in your way.You don't have to pay taxes beyond that of the basics to protect your rights (police, courts, national defense, etc).You vote with your dollars. If you don't like a particular store, you can always shop somewhere else.You have the right to own property, which comes with …

Retarded Occupy Wall Street Comments

Since my post on how I thought Occupy Wall Street is Stupid, I've been getting a lot of traffic. The vast majority has been quite positive, agreeing with my post. Over the last few days I've been getting very pro-occupy wall street comments and this mainly corresponds with the traffic dying down a bit. Plus occupier are being evicted. Anyway.

Normally I just delete comments that are so retarded. Normally I allow stupid, but if it falls into that fringe of catchy stupid/conspiracy crap it goes. I thought I'd share the ones I get here and people can see. I'll even reply to them. *More will be added as they come in.

It is an anti-corruption protest! What's wrong with the U.S. public demanding true representation in D.C. (the only thing being represented is the wants of corporations, who influence policy in every sphere- medicine, food, banking, you name it, so that the very people making the policies which regulate these industries are paid off by the industry themsel…

Genetically Modified Foods Pros and Cons

I am a big fan of genetically modified foods and I think this is just another perfect example of what is one of the greatest things that science has ever done, yet it is completely demonized as an evil by other groups. Genetically modified foods are foods that have their DNA changed to help them thrive better in harsher conditions. With this type of technology we can produce more food per acre of land and have crops that are resistant to things like drought, disease and insects.

I know the idea of playing with the DNA seems scary, but it really isn't that revolutionary of a concept. Selective breading has been a process that has been going on for a long time. Selective breeding is probably happening in your life now by the mate you choose the offspring you have. The DNA changes every generation and there is nothing wrong with that.

The real issue I have is with people waging a propaganda war spreading lies and slanders against genetically modified foods. Things about splicing the DN…
