Living In Make-Believe

Published: 2/19/2014
Written over 3 days (2/17 2/19)

I'm penning this missive after a long hiatus from writing and opining on global affairs. However, so much has happened that the distortions have become too flummoxing to be bottled up inside.

If you're an American reading this you should be very aware of the aptly coined "PRISM" program, the "warrantless wiretapping" of phone and internet communications by the NSA; FAA Section 702, FISA, the Patriot Act, Tailored Access Operations (TAO), and Edward Snowden.

It is been touted as the best January for stocks since 1984, the pundits have propagated that a good January equates to a great year. Economists were pleasantly surprised by the ray of white light amidst the previously perceived calamity as economic data releases were presented on a silver platter this week with beat after beat and preposterous upwardly revisions probably conjured through an abacus. Financial markets were so stoked by central bank posturing and the economic data beats that the Dow...
