This needs to be watched. You can’t make this sh*t up.

Bank Of America, I’ve had it and I’m writing a letter…

September 13, 2010

This past week-end I experienced the worst customer service ever in my 11 years as a Bank of America customer. So, today I am writing a letter to the Vice President, Brian Moynihan. It says he makes over 800,000.00 per year, and went to Notre Dame  (I attended Notre Dame middle school)…he is also a mid-west guy (from Ohio). So, we’ll see if sharing some similarities (certainly not the salary) has any bearing on my letter. I will report the response of lack thereof in a couple weeks. Hopefully he will have some understanding of the “little guy”. Stay tuned.


Les Blues

June 20, 2010

What’s the problem?…according to dear friend Jerome: It is the sub -”urban” paris people at odds with the French…basically a large problem in the broader French society now manifests itself in the French national team at World Cup. Can’t we all just get along?


If ever any doubt

May 27, 2010

Read the news for yourself. If there was ever any doubt that Goldman is basically dealing in what amounts to be legal loan-sharking, it’s pretty clear after reading some of this latest news. Meanwhile – stay tuned for a limited number of these spectacular “Goldman Suchs” t-shirts soon to drop, we will let you know when! This should make good conversation at your next social function.

106.5M (that’s million)

May 5, 2010

I’ve never used a girl featuring breast’s on a t-shirt or a graphic of any kind, (purposely avoided doing it seeing as how it is fairly contrived). However I may have to re-consider after seeing how Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” brought in 106.5 Million at a Christies auction yesterday…guess there’s something to it? I bet they could have fetched 110M if she was toting a gun!


Obama = Samurai spirit.

January 27, 2010

In a nod to President Obama’s Samurai spirit on display during tonight’s state of the union address, I share with you a nugget from my personal collection of Marc Oldens “Black Samurai”. Time to pick them up, dust’em off and read them again. Keep up the Samurai spirit Obama! Hopefully you can cut through the bullshit and spin like Rashomon – enjoy.







“Bail-Out” money used to post record profits?

October 7, 2009

Ask these guys…it seems the big 5 Wall Street banks (largely responsible for getting us into the messy economy we are now experiencing) have posted record profits this quarter…is something wrong here? – or is it just me?


Dow hits 1000, NY and LA ablaze…

March 3, 2009

Sound alarmist? – well maybe. As an avid reader of the Ludwig von Mises Institute blog, I was looking thru some of the early entries posted by the always interesting Peter Schiff of EPC. Read for yourself, and see if what he was/is saying makes sense. To me, it appears to be fairly accurate, and I think people need to wake up, (that was for you Kevin). Read with caution and a clear mind, you might be surprised.

Madoff…some clarification

January 20, 2009

Today I received a phone call from a good friend concerning a previous blog post I did on Bernie Madoff -(see MADOFF ‘Made Off” with the cash…posted Dec 17th, 2008.) My friend expressed some concern that the posts photograph along with the words “off to the gas chamber” could be construed as offensive, insensitive and basically inflammatory to the Jewish community, all things considered. After speaking with him for a while I was moved to expand on the motivation behind that post, and to explain a bit more in depth about where I am coming from.

On that day I was so outraged by this story. This was indeed a despicable act perpetrated by a prominent man in the Jewish community on many of his own people. The only way I felt that I could press my view was to pull out all stops and really say what I felt. Now, for those of you who do not know me personally, I offer my sincere apology for any misunderstanding or insult that my have been gleaned from this post, I have supported many Jewish organizations over the years, and have many close personal friends in the Jewish community. For those of you who do know me personally you know very well that I do not mince words, I say what I mean, and mean what I say.

Simply put, I wanted to call attention to the ironic nature of this story. Madoff (being a Jewish man) took his own people (Jewish private citizens, and Jewish non-profit foundations) and sold them down the river, and for that I believe that an eye deserves an eye. The reference to the gas chamber was intentional. I could have easily used other forms of capitol punishment to illustrate my point, i.e. the electric chair, lethal injection, noose, etc. but that would not drive home the fact that we cannot stand by and watch these types of individuals who think they are out of the reach of justice do whatever they please with other people’s lively-hoods. period. If you would like to comment on this post, or send me an email to debate the subject matter feel free to do so at mike@ludwigvantheman.com. Currently there are some very debatable things that are developing in the Obama administration that deserve attention and need to be brought out into the light. I will be posting on those soon after my fact-checking checks out. check out http://www.blackagendareport.com. Thank you, in the meantime i hope you enjoy the photo below, sent from the good friend mentioned above…yes he is Jewish, so don’t blame me! – but I do think it is quite humorous!
