  • federal loans
    deployed decoy
    Many years ago a federal law was passed that banks and CUs cold not release federal salary, well until payday. This law has never been followed by DOD overseas banking. Besides my federal CU offering payday interest free loans in any shut down. They advertize you get paid 3 working days (at least) before pay day actually hits, when banking with them... Talk about free loan and the cost of this interest compounded by 10s of thousands of military payrolls on the US tax payer...

  • Contractionist policies cause an economic contraction? Who knew?
    Just me
    Well color me surprised. Congress followed the Republicans, again, and the economy is worsening. Who knew that contractionist policies would yield an economic contraction? Everyone. It isn't a matter of "didn't know" because history shows us that implementing contractionist policies during an economic recession makes it worse. We need only look at 1937 America to see the truth in this assertion. It isn't a matter of "didn't know" because we can see how the European austerity plan is working in contemporary Great Britain...it isn't. It isn't a matter of "didn't know" because Congress was WARNED by economists, like Paul Krugman, (who has pretty much been right while the right has been universally wrong on economic policy.) Rather than learn from these salutary lessons and educated opinions, Congress chose the path of moral cowardice and allowed the right to drive the economy off a cliff. We now have a Fed which has expended itself, and can't do anything more to ameliorate the impact of bad governance. We have an increasingly fearful market (and they're right to be afraid) who know that the debt deal was a meaningless bit of bad political theater. It didn't put us on the path to responsible long term governance AND it did nothing to move us out of recession short term If anything it caused things to get worse. Finally, we have the American people, including Feds, who are angry, confused, and frankly don't trust either Congress OR the President to fix what's wrong with America. Under these conditions people simply aren't going to SPEND money. In the absence of spending there will be no demand and no reason for investors to grow the economy.

    I missed NUF today, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Now if we just add pork fat and dog poop to the original mix. We could drop it on the ME. Talk about WMD...
