Had we but DOOM enough and time...

DOOOOM

I hope this Monday morning finds you in robust good health, my groovy babies. You'll need your strength to fend off the waves of zombies, mutants, cannibals, and K Street lobbyists who will be infesting the land during the Burning Times.

King v Burwell is at the Supreme Court this week, but I don't pretend to have the faintest clue as to which way Roberts is going to vote. I am not an attorney nor do I play one on TV, so I really cannot rely on anything other than common sense to judge if the federal subsidies for states which haven't set up their own exchanges will stand or fall. I think the subsidies should fall, given the plain language of the statute, but then I thought the individual mandate was plainly unconstitutional as well and Chief Justice John Roberts found a way to be okay with it. Roberts had a chance to stop this whole abomination in its tracks some years back and chose to let it live on for what (to my untrained eye) were craven reasons. It's a little late in the day to be fretting about the damage this law will do if enforced as written. (But don't worry, hepcats: the GOP has a plan to save the day if the court rules against ObamaCare. Because Severely Conservative or something.)

His Majesty the King has taken time out of his busy schedule of golfing, selfie-taking, shit-talking, and trolling the GOP to heap scorn on a close American ally. To say that President Obama is thin-skinned is to understate the matter dramatically; he truly believes in vox Obama vox Dei, and he takes disagreement extremely personally. Obama has the bad professor's habit of lecturing people rather than talking to them, and in Bibi's case, Obama is lecturing a guy who's far more versed in the issues at hand than Obama is. But Obama is the smartest guy in any room (just ask him!) so it follows that any opinion he holds must be the correct one. Prime Minister Netanyahu will give his speech, Obama will disregard it with the same disdain he's shown for the past six years of his Presidency, and the middle east will slide that much deeper into chaos.

But enough of that nonsense. Let's get on to the financial shenanigans which are this column's raison d'etre.

I've been saying it for a long time: all of the incentives in the developed world right now argue against saving your money. However, I am a contrarian and say that individuals must fight against all the powers that are arrayed against them and save anyway. Just save wisely; know what you're saving for. Have a plan, and stick to it. Prudence and thrift always pay off, even in the face of governmental fuckery. The wheel will turn and the madness and pathologies of this age will pass away. The smart, the well-prepared, the careful -- they will prosper, as they have throughout history during times of turmoil.

Why save? Because continuous consumption requires continuous spending, and most budgets cannot withstand a loss of income on retirement if consumption habits don't change. Most people -- not just Boomers, but nearly everybody -- under-estimate how much money they'll need in retirement. Most financial planners tell you to assume that you'll need at least 60% of your pre-retirement income, but they also assume that you're going into retirement with relatively low debt and a decent position in terms of net worth. That simply is not the case for an increasing percentage of the population.

Moody's to Chicago: BAM!

Some interesting thoughts on how interest rates matter, and how they don't.

Yes, Virginia: our adjusted incomes have gone way up since 1972 (or the prices for all kinds of stuff have gone way down; same difference, really). The productivity explosion in the latter half of the 20th century has allowed citizens of developed nations to afford far more stuff for less work than ever before in human history. The situation is actually even better than that: we can buy awesome suff now (flat-panel 50" TV's, smarthones, etc.) that didn't even exist back in 1972. And all that cool new stuff makes life better and more interesting for rich and not-so-rich alike. Now, granted, we've run up many trillions of dollars of debt at the same time, but...always look on the bright side of life, babies.

China's economy is continuing to cool, and that has a lot of implications going forward. Robust growth over the years (whether fudged or not by China's leaders) has hidden a lot of horrible economic decisions, but -- as Americans discovered in 2008 -- a slow economy tends to uncover a lot of garbage that used to be hidden from view.

The only solution for Greece's ongoing economic nightmare is fundamental transformation of their top-heavy economy. Get the government out of the way; make it easier for entrepreneurs to start and run businesses; flatten the tax code and enforce it rigorously. But Greece will probably do none of those things because culture, as always, is upstream of politics and the Greek culture is the antithesis of everything they must do to reform themselves. Greeks won't do the things necessary for reform because Greeks don't want to do those things. They want a cushy sinecure with a stodgy public-sector bureaucracy where they can retire at 40 and live off a generous pension forever afterward. Smart, innovative, driven Greeks will either leave or simply give up because the tides of the overculture will overwhelm them. (There's a lesson in this for America, obviously.)

How to invest like Mr. Spock. (Personal note: the passing of Leonard Nimoy last week hit this particular sci-fi nerd pretty hard. Safe travels wherever you may wander, Mr. Nimoy.)

5 As for PlaceboCare, two bold predictions:

- The federal-exchange subsidies themselves will be declared unconstitutional. However, the penalt...er...taxes (both individual and corporate) based on their existence will still be levied as though the federal-exchange subsidies exist.

- The RepublicRATs, as outlined above, will make the federal-exchange subsidies legal. The second part of the stated plan won't happen, however, because they're just fine with PlaceboCare.

18 King v Burwell is at the Supreme Court this week, but I don't pretend to have the faintest clue as to which way Roberts is going to vote.


The wording in the law is plain so there is no way he should vote with the liberals on the court. I linked an article that talked about his desire to have a court with concensus is what called him out to be a traitor before. And his call that the courts were not there to save them from the voters.


In fact, yes they damn sure are. We will see if he is still a sell-out.

19 Even Dhimmicrats want to "change" ZeroCare, because its an electoral albatross. I bet Hillary wants it left alone though, because picking at that scab right before her triumphal accession to the throne would be discomfiting to the flatlined electorate. After her coronation, though, I bet even she wants that ugly law to disappear.

No way will the Repubs give back 20% of the economy to the private sector. Just like they used Medicare, Social Security, the Highway Trust Fund, and god only know whatever other funds, to hide their profligate spending and unsustainable debt for years, public healthcare allows socialized government to keep the Ponzi scheme going for a few more years while the corruptocrats scrape the bottom of the bowl for every last tidbit to feather their own nests.

98 And don't forget that the best laid plans of mice and men oft go aglee.

I was in debt but not severely so when at 60 the company I worked for up and closed. Owner decided to retire (health reasons and pointedly so as he died the next year) and I was left with no place to go and the potential income of 5-6 years (which would have erased my debt) was gone in a heartbeat.

I even incurred further expenses because I was using company facilities for living quarters so I lost my job and my place at the same time.

Thus when along came the Greater Depression and the Obama Fcuk up, I was up shit creek without a propelling instrument.

When the final denouement occurred in the form of being t-boned while delivering newspapers I was no longer able to service my debt. I did maintain my car payments but all other debt (unsecured credit) was out the door as I had no other income than SS.

After a year of aggro, the debt collectors have left me alone but I have two judgements hanging over me and if I lived elsewhere I would be in serious trouble.

So don't go thinking you got things aced because things can changed quite rapidly and in directions you would never have dreamt would occur.

Congress ceded its legislative power to the Executive. This is the inevitable result. The judiciary should save us because it is really the people's power, not Congress. And last I checked, the people did not give it away though their representatives did. The damage was done long ago, when the judiciary assented to Congress' giving away its principle power.

132 The same people who parrot Hillary!'s need for a plumber, and say that all boys should go into union apprenticeships (you'll notice, none of them say you should be like Joe The Plumber), try to take down a candidate who quit college halfway through senior year to take a good job. I don't think they wonder at all why no one takes their claim (on either side) very seriously.

You can't make a claim that college doesn't matter when credentialed graduates get to sneer at political opinions of technicians as "great unwashed." If you want to be heard in the public sphere, even in the current new generation, you need that credential. But while you bemoan that state of affairs, don't forget that noncollegiate arrivistes are also pretty good at erecting barriers too, and don't mind using party and government influence to do it. Why yes, I did used to be in construction.

'Twas ever thus, the same the world over, and a man's a man for a' that, sure. Don't blinder yourself on the college thing (I know, for most it's simply a question of the expense, or the financing of it). Unless you accept that your political voice will be expressed only through your checkbook, it's a box you have to check. Out in the real world, where real asses are really kissed, there is a whole list of credentials you need to obtain if you want to wield any influence. A diploma is one of the easier ones. Still not the most expensive, either.

I spent over a decade working for plaintiff's side personal injury attorneys. Yes, yes, that's right, there I was, in the deepest heart of darkness.

I got dragged kicking and screaming onto the business planning committee and we were kicking around various and sundry ideas regarding expansion when I pointed out that our entire business model depended on horrible things happening to people out of the blue.

There was a good ten seconds of silence as everyone contemplated that, yup, pretty much.

As Mencken said, "democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard".

If that was his reason, now that there is such widespread dissatisfaction with the law, he should have no qualms in shitcanning it without the fear of repercussions.

While I would not go so far as to ban it, I have always thought that the S109/M855 cartridge was a bad idea. When combined with a short barrel it is an even worse idea.

The effectiveness of the 5.56/.223 cartridge has been that there is a very fast bullet that breaks apart when it hits a human being. The M193 cartridge with its 55 grain bullet and a muzzle velocity well over 3000 fps out of a 20 inch barrel is an effective combination. When the bullet breaks apart, at least two and sometimes more fragments travel off in different directions and cause massive tissue damage and an enormous amount of bleeding. This only happens at velocities of greater than 2700 feet per second. With the heavier bullet of the M855 starting at a lower velocity, especially from the 14 inch barrel of an M4, the velocity will drop below the critical 2700 fps in a hundred yards or so. Once the velocity drops that low, the bullet will tend to go straight through rather than upsetting and the wounds caused, while eventually fatal, will not be instantly disabling. This was seen in Somalia where US troops using M855 ammunition would often hit the Somalis but they would continue fighting. It did the US soldiers little good if the Somalis later bled to death.

The point is that even though the US government has no legal or practical grounds for banning this ammunition, it is not something that is particularly effective and there is little reason for panic buying it now.
