Dangerous Speech: Would The Founders Be Considered Domestic Extremists Today?

Not only has free speech become a four-letter word - profane, obscene, uncouth, not to be uttered in so-called public places - but in more and more cases, the government deems free speech to be downright dangerous and in some instances illegal. Yet by allowing the government to whittle away at cherished First Amendment freedoms - which form the backbone of the Bill of Rights - we have evolved into a society that would not only be abhorrent to the founders of this country but would be hostile to the words they used to birth this nation.

"People In The Market For Many, Many Years Have Been Replaced By An Algorithm"

“I don’t think there’s a whole lot from my generation that are still in the industry"..."The business has to be downsized,” said Keith Underwood, a foreign-exchange consultant who ended a 25-year trading career, including at Lloyds Banking Group Plc, in 2014. But it’s not easy “for people who have been in a market for many, many years to see that they’ve been replaced by an algorithm.”

Abenomics has failed. That's just all there is to it. We'll now sit back and wait for the day when Abe and Kuroda finally take a long bow and fall (figuratively speaking we hope) on their swords.

Ron Paul Slams Government Plan For "Mandatory Depresssion Screening" Of All Americans

The United States Preventive Services Task Force recently recommended mandatory depression screening for all Americans.  Government health care mandates undermine the basic principles of a free society. If it is legitimate for government to tell us what types of health care we must receive, then it is also legitimate for the government to tell us what to eat, when to exercise, and even how to raise our children. To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, a tyranny imposed for our own good is the worst form of tyranny because it is a tyranny without limits.

Another Data Point To Ignore: Dividend Cuts Have Surpassed 2008

Being "paid to wait" in high-yielding stocks last year was a death by 394 cuts.
