People are upset with what I had to say in regards to Indian reservations and capitalism. People today like to see themselves as victims. Once you see yourself as a victim you have already lost! You have the power to change your thinking at any time and how you choose to let things effect you. Most people don’t get this and they settle for mediocrity in life. The latest jobs numbers released were the first to come out of the Trump presidency and they’re better than Obama’s last year in office. So there’s some optimism out there with a jobs number of 235,000 for February but we’re not out of the woods yet. We are nearing the point at which the bubble is popped and all the malinvestments come to the surface.
Trump addressed Congress for the first time and his speech had a very nationalistic and police state sort of vibe to it. The republicans that were against a big government when Obama was in office, now seem to be falling behind their leader supporting a $1 Trillion infrastructure program! President Trump also suggested five things that he wants to see done with healthcare and it really sounds like Obamacare lite! The only way to reduce the severity of our future economic crisis is to shrink the size of government and there’s no willingness to do this from either side of isle!
A local radio host at KCTR in Montana, Paul Mushaben, was taken out by the politically correct culture that’s overwhelming the politics of today! He has been indefinably suspended for pointing out the property destruction that has taken place when Native American basketball teams have played other schools in Montana. To boil this all down, what is it that has led to this sort bad reputation from these teams? Race has nothing to do with it! It’s a lack of capitalism on Indian reservations. When socialism and government dominate society it literally destroys people! When the economic collapse in the United States comes this way, the people who have been sucking off the government teat for years will be in big trouble because they’re not capable of providing for themselves. And how will they react to this? Unfortunately, with violence.
The stock market continues to hit record highs and the Dow is nearing in on its next target, a 21,000 point DOW. How much more will the markets go up before the big crash? That’s something hard to predict but gold and silver have also been on the rise. Gold is up nearly 8% in 2017 and silver is up 13%. Gold and silver are still not anywhere close to their record highs from 2011. With I high risk stock market, gold and silver at this point, is incredibly cheap insurance! Also, unpiloted flying drone taxis are coming to Dubai this July! This technology is amazing and shows the private sector at work making life better for everyone. Here’s a link to the drone video mentioned on the show. http://www.wsj.com/video/flying-drone-taxis-could-take-off-in-dubai/F329FEAC-2366-4796-9205-72C0344F17D0.html and here’s the article: http://www.economist.com/blogs/gulliver/2017/02/taxi-take-0
The super bowl this year turned out to be an incredible game with the comeback win by the patriots. Tom Brady, who is arguably the best quarterback of all time, was a 6th round draft pick! When each NFL team has a salary cap of $155 million a lot of strategy and opportunity cost comes into when putting together a “winning” team. Then we move over to Venezuela and those people are going through a lot and have been for some time now as they are going through an economic collapse. The people of Venezuela are starving to death and are now eating pink flamingos, ant eaters, dogs and cats just to survive! This is what central planning looks like in all its glory!
