      Actually, you're the idiot. The fund comes from the government leasing out state and federally owned land and mineral rights. They don't take a percent of oil company profits at all.

      Even if they did, a government taking a percent of private profits isn't "partial nationalization". It's "taxes". You'll find a lot of states do that.

    • Real U.S. debt may be as high as $32.5 trillion
      look it's all just a guilt scam. Telling you you owe this money, why on earth would you owe this money? That's what 'guilt offerings' where in the bible, money you paid cuz you guilty of something. National debt is same thing, a derivative obligation is just someone saying 'you owe me mutha fucka'. It's slavery with an explanation of why you deserve it.

    • Report: Opec set to win battle against US shale oil .
      Saudi Arabia gained the whip hand yesterday in its battle against America's shale industry as new figures showed oil production by non-Opec members is set to crash next year by the largest amount in 24 years.

      Sharply lower oil prices are set to trigger a slide in production of half a million barrels from outside the Opec cartel to 57.7 million barrels a day in 2016, the International Energy Agency said in its monthly report.

      It offered one of the clearest signs yet that Saudi Arabia's attempts to knock out American shale gas production appear to be working.

    • Could some of you liberals step up to the plate and post some pro-Krugman articles again?

      Nobel laureate Paul Krugman said risks of failure are growing for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's "Abenomics" campaign to end Japan's two-decade slump.

      "I'm still really, really worried," Krugman said at a conference in Tokyo on Wednesday. A big problem remains building enough momentum in the economy to escape deflation, he said.

      I suspect Big Money is pumping everything hoping to catch up a bunch of suckers before the next dump.

      If you do this as a lowly day trader, it's a crime, perhaps even a conspiracy or RICO. If you do it as a huge banker or government, it's okay because you're too big to fail and too big to be touched by the SEC.

      :lol:

      "I picture myself as a sort of Raj-era British memsahib white woman walking among the filthy hordes. Her ladyship, swaddled in Victorian-style silks flowing in the breeze. I'm wearing a wide-brimmed whalebone-corset satin gown of the finest tailoring. The filthy, scrawny masses are in awe of my radiant beauty and they prostrate themselves in the mud, bosun and scraping and crawling over each other like a pile of savage carrion-beetles for the chance just to touch my hem in awe.

    • Moody's expects next corporate default cycle to last longer
      Aug 6 (IFR) - A decline in credit quality since the end of the Great Recession in June 2009 will likely lengthen the next corporate debt default cycle, Moody's said in a report on Thursday.

      The agency said the last such cycle, when debt defaults ran higher than their historical average, went on for 21 months - but that the next one will go on longer.

      Without naming a potential starting time, Moody's said the next such cycle would likely be closer to the 37-month or 57-month cycles that ended in 1992 and 2004, respectively.

      "If we assume the next default cycle is likely to be closer to average than the Great Recession default cycle, then we can expect that it will last longer," it said in a new report.

    • Should Eurozone or China Economic Contagion Spread to the US Stock Market, What Happens With the Political Landscape?
      Let me give a simple and plausible scenario. Our stock market is overheated, over leveraged, and based on growth projections that are unsustainable given zirp and the current contracting real GDP (sans leverage and deficit spending). Additionally, the Eurozone contagion risk (which has been evaded for over five years now) coupled with the Chinese market implosion, it can easily be argued that the US stock market is damned near a top with a decent risk of a severe correction.

      Let's assume this happens in the next 12 months.

      What do you think happens politically? Do you think it helps Hillary, Sanders, Walker, Bush, Christie, Trump, or anyone specifically? Historically, melting economies benefit Democrats, but I have a hard time thinking the average person would think "gee, Hillary will save the day!" unless they're actually thinking, "gee, we need Billy in there again!"

      Your thoughts? Is this scenario a game changer? Do you think it will happen?

    • Americans' Economic Confidence Gets Whacked
      http://wolfstreet.com/2015/07/21/what-are-americans-seeing-that-again-whacks-their-economic-confidence/#comment-18709

      "At first, we thought it might have been a blip, a short-term thing, something to do with the winter weather which was gorgeous in California, though some folks in the East were getting lots of exercise shoveling what seemed like endlessly renewable snow. And we might have blamed it on the margin of sampling error.

      In early January, the economic confidence of Americans had reached the highest level since before the Financial Crisis, according to Gallup's Economic Confidence Index. But then it began to drop. At the time, the weather was blamed for everything. But spring should have turned it around. Only it didn't.

      Economic confidence continued to zigzag lower in an orderly fashion, interrupted only by a sudden plunge and some upticks too. And today's weekly index hit the worst level since October last year, with the three-day rolling average dropping to the worst level since September.

    • JFK, LaGuardia Airport Contract Workers to Strike Wednesday
      http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-07-21/jfk-laguardia-airport-contract-workers-vote-to-strike-wednesday

      "While the airlines have been making record profits and the Port Authority has approved billions of dollars to modernize LaGuardia airport, the airport workers who make these profits possible are struggling to survive," said a news release from SEIU 32BJ.

      Well that is too fucking bad. I doubt that Tyrone and Shaneequa, who work as baggage handlers, are contributing all that much to the bottom line. I hope these fuckers keep striking and that will speed up the development of robots to make these ungrateful fucks appreciate the fact they have a job.

    • Poorfags in California to get FREE hybrid and electric cars?
      Nice...more fucking shit the PRODUCER class has to pay for.

      A new experiment in California aims to solve two problems with one program. A pilot program backed by the California Air Resource Board is offering some big kick backs for residents of the Greater Los Angeles area and San Joaquin Valley if they turn in old gas guzzling vehicles for more energy efficient ones. The lower their income the more money could be coming their way.

    • Chinese Stocks Collapsed Just Before NYSE Shutdown
      http://www.infowars.com/chinese-stocks-collapsed-right-before-nyse-shutdown/

      Chinese stocks were suffering huge declines prior to the New York Stock Exchange shutdown due to an alleged "technical issue," fueling concerns whether the NYSE was actually halted due to the free fall in China.

      Companies in China fell 20% from a May high and, right before the NYSE shutdown, the Hang Seng Index plunged its most since the 2008 financial crisis.

      "The Hang Seng Index fell 5.8% to 23,516.56 at the close today, the biggest drop since November 2008, after slumping as much as 8.6%," Bloomberg's Kana Nishizawa wrote.

    • How Northeast Minneapolis Took Back a Local Shopping District
      [quote]..[/quote]If the owners of the bike shop and brewery were looking fore somewhere to locate their business, why didn't they just buy the building themselves? Why did the building have to be bought by this other organization first?

      A bike shop and a brewery are not going to create very much in the way of jobs or "wealth". There are thousands of those types of businesses all over the country that come and go every day.
