    The peak of US; so sad to see how fast it has fallen, since 1970.

      It is a different world CFS. But, I have decided that I am going to be as vocal as I can to combat the stupidity.

        Paul W says:

        Al, you are going to have to be more vocal with so much stupidity around. These same idiots are the ones who are often first to complain….I really hope they catch them before they do more damage and put everybody out of work.

          I should add that this is from a website in NZ. This is how the world sees America lately. A mix of corrupt police, crime and race riots with a dash of Goldman Sachs, Hillary, and Michelle Obama’s fashion (those arms!) mixed in.

          Happy Fourth of July to those KE Report readers who are managing to keep sane! You are a rare breed indeed.

          Really great to hear from you Mr. Irish.

          I am happy to call it a draw.

          It would be truly wonderful if we could get together sometime.

          Are you able to use Skype?

          God bless you, my friend.

        Married in ’73. Helped provide some direction to my life. Wife is 5 yrs. younger than I but we’re both healthy so you can’t ask much more than that. Enjoyed last night’s presentation of the 70’s on PBS. Learned some good history I had forgotten.

    Great stuff!!
    Wonder if we ever get it back? The masculine male. Instead of the sensitive new age metro sexual type. The world and society evolves. So I’m still hopeful…

    • On July 2, 2015 at 7:23 pm,
      Big Al says:

      As am I Chartster. As I said above I am not going to give in to the stopidos who believe in a free lunch as their right. I also have moral values that I absolutely refuse to change. If I did I would just be another looser. And none of us here are loosers!

    Thank you Al for the video. Brings back many wonderful memories of Fireworks displays my folks took us to as kids, and the many reasons behind it all and all those who have stood for our freedoms. May God Bless America!!! Have a great 4th!!

    Chinese stock market goes down about 6%. Authorities in power don’t like that, so 20 brokers are arrested.
    Their crime?
    Guilty of shorting stocks.
    ? Coming to your neighborhood in the future?

    • On July 3, 2015 at 8:05 am,
      lawrence says:

      Not that simple. There is a big power struggle going on there. President Xi’s anti-corruption has hurt a lot of mid to high rank officials. They have been trying to cause trouble including assacination attempts. The move in Chinese stock market looks like a pump and dump. Stock has been always suppressed by the central government for years. government mentioned last year they wanted to let stock market up and claimed slow bull is good for economy and somehow the slow bull became mad cow quickly. Some of what Chinese SEC did is exactly drag market up and smash it. So the head of SEC was sacked a couple of days ago. People who lost money will start rioting if government does not react. I am sure someone will be executed based on Chinese politics.

        A couple of months ago when the stock market was surging, premier Li said that there are devils in the exchange. Now it comes to the battle.

        The crash has caused quite psychological damage. It is not normal to surge 150% in a matter of few months. Chinese market has never been normal anyway. It is why people like real estate more

        • On July 3, 2015 at 9:43 am,
          Shad says:

          Yes, there has been quite a bit of psychological damage from this bubble then crash. In Europe or the US or Canada, we’ve seen these cycles before. For many Chinese this is their first experience with this kind of phenomenon. Also agreed on the Chinese markets not really being normal anyway. Good thoughts as per usual Lawrence.

    Tough to live under rule of law when the “law” is not known.

  14. On July 3, 2015 at 9:24 am,
    CFS says:

    Greece defaults.However the CDS writers cannot pay.
    So ISDA does not declare a default.
    The law is changed!
    So the winners lose and the losers win!

    What kind of upside down world do we live in?

    CFS says:

    Is it possible for the world to have a currency collapse if contract law is mutable at will by those in power?

    Black is white and white is black!

    I always thought the American debt system would collapse, but maybe it isn’t possible.

  16. On July 3, 2015 at 10:03 am,
    CFS says:

    Puerto Rico default.
    Again ISDA has not declared a default.
    It has declared a debt payment moratorium.
    What kind of mealy-mouthed mumbojumbo is that?

    If I owned credit default swaps, I would expect to be paid!

    • On July 3, 2015 at 10:47 am,
      Big Al says:

      Expecting to be paid, Professor, could very well be an unrealistic assumption. I have certainly found that to be the case in my experience as a land lord. I had to spent almost $2K

      • On July 3, 2015 at 10:51 am,
        Big Al says:

        I hit “submit” two quickly. To continue: “I had to spend almost $2K to evict a friend who promised me he would be able to pay the rent and then did not pay for the months of March, April, May, June and now 1/2 of July. This is not a philosophy that I adhere to obviously but elements in society are certainly going in this direction with absolutely not feeling of personal responsibility of remorse.”

        Best to you Professor.

    When liberals refused to allow the 10 commandments to be posted on a wall at City Hall, the rot of morals was obvious……

  18. On July 3, 2015 at 11:18 am,
    CFS says:

    (I am neither a Christian nor a Jew)
    I have always considered the 10 commandments not a religion, but mostly a set of rules by which civilization should live.
    Certainly they have founded the basis upon which, together with the Magna Carta, the Anglosphere developed the greatest society yet seen on earth.
    Now the system is clearly in decline and I don’t know what can stop the decline.
    With a leader that has a pen and a phone who ignores constitutional limitations of his authority; with a Supreme Court that rewrites the very meaning of English words; with a Secretary of State who thinks more of lining her own pockets than the very life of her underlings; with a Congress corruptly following only corporation bribery, short of a Revolution I see little hope.
