FIRST SHOW of 2016!!!

Yeah... we'll see. LOL

Due to some technical and economic industry upheaval that's occurred recently, it's probably 50/50 is this show will air. Given those odds, there is no guest (I wouldn't want to waste anyone's time doing a show that might not air, so for the first show of 2016, you'll have the pleasure of listening to the musical sound of the voice of yours truly.  I am going to cover some of the issue surrounding the future of Internet radio, and what 2016 might look like for the independent, Internet-based stations, as well as get into my opinions on Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder, the situation in Flint, the situation in Oregon, and the situation with gun control,  (No, I won't be covering The Situation, from the Jersey Shore.) AND if the show doesn't end up airing at it's normal time, at 10:PM Eastern, on January 12th on Rainbow, you *might* still be able to catch it at 4:PM Eastern on the 13th.  Failing that I will continue my practice of hosting the shows here after they air.

Thanks you for listening! Thank you for your support! And I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.

Stock Market's Down. Boo-frickin'-hoo

Much is being made of the year closings of several major stock indices being DOWN.  This is not surprising, because in the past 7 years there has been in fact so LITTLE bad news economically to speak of, the Conservative Media (read: ALL of the media) has had very little to write about. Now I wrote an article very similar to this one a few years back, and in light of the celebratory doom and gloom coming from the Right at the prospect that the horrible, terrible (yet somehow BOOMING) Obama economy might finally be coming to an end, let's put these year-end down turns into perspective.

I'm sure everyone is well aware that after eight years of George W. Bush, we were basically broke as a country, an economy and as people.  To reiterate, in case you've conveniently forgotten, or are otherwise allergic to facts and data, the day Governor George W. Bush took office, the Dow Jones Industrials (DJIA) were at 10581.96, following roughly 8 years of growth under Bill Clinton. By the time Senator Barack H. Obama took office, it was down to 8077.56, a loss of 23.7% of its value. The NASDAQ has fallen from 2759.10 to 1476.42, for a whopping 46.5% loss. The S&P 500 stated at 1342.54 and fell to 805.22 for an even 40% loss. And the NYSE fell from 6853.79 to 5195.55, a 24.2% loss.  Those are EIGHT YEAR RETURNS mind you! Keep that in mind as everyone frets about the DJIA, NYSE and S&P500 (though not the NASDAQ) being down a few points after just ONE YEAR!

Now... I already know what you're thinking: Most of those losses came right at the end of 2008, didn't they? Just in time for the election? Well... Not exactly. The BIGGEST losses did - the DJIA lost 700 points in a single day, just after John McCain made a speech about the fundamentals of our economy being strong, for example - but that particular slide was already almost two years in the making at that point. But if you want to how insane it was that we not only ELECTED that fool (we didn't, I know, but bear with me here) but RE-elected him, check this out: On election day, 2004, the DJIA was at 10054.39, down 5%. The NASDAQ closed at 1979.87, down 28.2%. The S&P had fallen to 1130.51, a loss of 15.8% and the NYSE stood at 6699.86 - the best performer among them, losing a mere 2.2%.  Those were FOUR YEAR returns, by the way!  So, you read that correctly: That piece of shit was RE-ELECTED after every major stock index LOST value during just him first four years in office!  And that didn't happen right before election night either! All four were down form most of 2008! Amazing how that never came up as the swift-boat veterans lied about Senator John Kerry's war record with such reckless abandon, huh?

(Yeah, Kerry's ''04 campaign kind of sucked. *I* could have done better. Hell *my dog* could have done better!)

So after their guy gave us losses after four years, and HUGE losses after eight, what are they complaining about now?  Well... President Obama's economy has yielded the following stock market returns since his inauguration: The DJIA closed 2015 at 17425.03, up 115.7%! The NASDAQ closed the year at 5007.41, up 239.2%! The S&P closed at 2043.94, up 153.8%! And the NYSE finished at 10146.57, up 95.3%!  So... after giving us an economy that yielded nearly triple digit returns in every major stock index over SEVEN YEARS, the same idiots who supported the party of four- and eight-year LOSSES are back to complaining about the Obama Economy again. And before anyone thinks a President Trump would be any different? If he had invested the fortune he inherited from his Father in some of the index funds I've mentioned above, rather than going into business and investing it himself? He would be worth rather a bit more than he is today.  He is a below-average businessman strictly by the numbers, even before you factor in his FOUR bankruptcies - the only reason the man still has a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out!

Finally, I do realize that this is a 1%'er biased article, using the stock markets as I've done. But hey: It 's the 1%'ers who are complaining right? OK, I know it isn't. But it IS the 1%'ers who's complaints are being listened to and aired by the media. For the rest of us? You can make these same comparisons with unemployment and job creation, and reach the same conclusions as well. And for the more academic-minded economists, remember: He did all of this while slashing the federal budget deficit by two-thirds, and without seeing a significant uptick in inflation! The only thing that would stop a Republican with this record's face being carved next to Mount Rushmore would that he'd have to be a Liberal.

Happy New Year and Vote Blue!


Happy New Year, everyone! Whether 2015 was the best year ever for you, or you couldn't wait for it to end, here's hoping that 2016 is a thousand times better, and brings you everything you hope for!
(Unless you hope that Donald Trump becomes President, in which case I hope a brick falls on your head from a great height.)
