Good Riddance

This has been a horrible year.  How else can it be described?  Donald Trump has surpassed all expectations of being a malignant force in American political life.  Indeed, it has been hard to post as often as I would like because many days it’s difficult to find the words to adequately describe how much I detest this cretin.  Many people have had to resort to going to the doctor asking for help for their depression and anxiety caused by this creature from the depths of hell.  He is a cancer along with the enablers in the Republican party.  The other day as I waited in the sub freezing temperatures to prepay my property taxes I cursed Trump and the Republicans for their political retribution of targeting those of us in blue states.  It was a fitting end to this year of political hell.

I fear 2018 might not be better.  Will the final act of Dump’s insanity be starting a nuclear war?  What new retribution will be put upon those in blue states?  There are those that believe Democrats will win control of Congress in the mid-terms elections.  Don’t count on it.  Democrats need new leadership to replace the old farts they now have leading the party.  None seem to be around.  As for the Mueller investigation I fear it is going nowhere fast.  Why is Jared Kushner still running around the White House?  So folks don’t be optimistic about the coming year.  Indeed, I fear things will get worse!!! But for now all I can say is GOOD RIDDANCE to 2017.

No Words

Dear Readers:  I apologize to my loyal base of fans for not posting lately.  It seems my site was hacked (can you believe it) and it took some time to get a new Bits up and running.  I guess the Russians must of learned of my devotion to calling out Dump for what he is (a disgusting vile cretin) and they decided to cause some mischief.  I will rededicate myself to the ceaseless pursuit of truth in this age of political despair until the bane of humanity called Dump is gone. Stay tuned!!!

Guest Commentary

Investors, who ought to be wary of such fiscal recklessness, were instead caught up in manias of their own. Remember 2009, when everyone swore we’d never let our markets get drunk on consumer debt and sketchy assets again? According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, household debt has passed the pre-recession record of nearly $13 trillion — and that’s before what’s shaping up to be a holiday spending binge. Meanwhile, imaginary money known as bitcoin has been selling for $12,000 per . . . per what? Per unit of imaginary money, backed solely by the full faith and credit of other bitcoin believers. bitcoin is up nearly 1,000 percent this year. It’s the Dutch tulip craze, except that in Holland investors at least ended up with some bulbs when the bubble burst. When the bottom drops out of bitcoin, today’s giddy buyers might as well have a wallet full of Monopoly money.
