The chronic attempts by the District of Criminals, regardless of which faction of the one-party system they claim allegiance to, remains focused on finding the perfect excuse, the biggest tragedy to exploit to, convince America to give up its right to keep and bear arms.  The 9/11 event is a perfect example of exploiting a tragedy in order to convince people to give up their Constitutional rights and protections.

The recent and ongoing efforts now taking place in each and every state to limit, prohibit and criminalize gun ownership are not accidental or coincidental.  This is a staged plan with a specific agenda.  Disarm droneAmerica.  Of course, they are using our children, holding them up as if they are martyrs to the 2nd Amendment.  The fact is, our government could care less about the safety and well-being of children anywhere as is evidenced by our continued drone strikes in Pakistan and those now planned for the US. Hundreds of thousands of innocent children have been collaterally murdered in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan where children are, and will be, killed.  The difference is, when the government murders innocent children around the globe, it is called “collateral damage”.  If you murder children (or anyone) we call it what it is…..murder.

Drugs vs guns

As a result of the information that came to light with regards to the administration of psychotropic drugs to individuals involved in the shootings over the last few years, the government jumped on the “mental health” band wagon and found a perfect means to prevent future adults the right to keep and bear arms.  Its really a very simple and insidious plan: Pass laws in each state empowering the schools to engage in fictional mental health determinations.  Give them grant money to make sure they take the bait.

Whether the people involved in the mass shootings were actually suffering from some form of mental drugs_deesdistress and from the administering of toxic drugs known for causing aggression, homicidal/suicidal ideation, violence, erradic behavior, worsening of symptoms, massive depression and other assorted brain storm activities, will never be known.  What is known is that they had been targeted for drug “therapy” and the results of this therapy are evident.

Now, again exploiting the tragedy’s without addressing the possible underlying causes, everybody and their crazy brother is claiming that access to guns caused the tragedy’s.  Couldn’t possibly have been the forced administration of known neuro-toxins; known for causing bizarre and unpredictable behavior and increasing the likely-hood of violence.

Failing at education and now they are going into the mental health business? More

“Dow hits record high as markets are undaunted by tepid economic growth, political gridlock” (The Washington Post, March 5, 2013)

This is just an example of the headlines appearing in virtually every newspaper and on every newscast in001-1008100157-economy5 the country.

Feel better now?

Well, I hate to burst your bubble (that’s one of those highly technical economic terms bandied about by the talking heads), but let’s take a closer look at the numbers.

The common thread here is that all of these headlines trumpet a mindset that is pure horse (manure). (Editor’s note: The writer actually used a stronger epithet and, while we do not pretend to be rated G, there is always the outside chance the PPJG will be left lying about where a nine-year-old might find it.)

Anyone who respects the ‘time value of money’, also known as ‘inflation / deflation’, is conditioned to immediately suspect comparisons of dollar amounts between different time frames, and treat them with a huge dollop of skepticism.

THE REAL NUMBERS

The closing numbers for today (March 5, 2013) were $14,253.77 for the Dow and $3,224.13 for the NASDAQ.

The average annual inflation rate from 2000 to 2013 is 2.24%. The rate from 2007 to 2013 is 1.945% (see InflationData.com.)

Adjusted for inflation, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is $1,479.47, or 9.403% short of its all time high of $14,164.53 on October 9, 2007 ($15,733.24 in today’s dollar.)

The NASDAQ is even more woefully behind its March 10, 2000, record close of $5,048.62; ($6,751.24 after adjusting for inflation.) That would be $3,527.11 – short 52.244%.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!

Inflation is a basic characteristic of our economy. Those who wield some influence over these things strive to maintain the inflation rate between 0.5 and 1.5 percent as measured by the price index for personal consumption expenditures (the PCE price index).

Deflation is considered a problem in a modern economy because of the potential of a deflationary spiral and its association with the Great Depression.

The fact of inflation must be taken into account whenever and for whatever reason we are comparing the cost of things between two different time periods.

Obviously, we have a way to go.
