Are You a DUMPie—Destitute Unprepared Mature Person?

On April 13, the British Telegraph (one of London’s major papers) reported on the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) assertion that stocks in the U.S., United Kingdom, China, and Europe could lose 20% of their value over the next two years! Can you even imagine what that will do to your retirement plan? I used to […]

Your Future: Economic Meltdown for Decades!

My predictions are not based on special revelation from God, just common sense and knowledge of public affairs. I also believe you can’t go wrong if you depend on sinful man being sinful man! My four-fold prediction for the next 12 months: (1) there will be major political battles in Congress that will bruise egos […]

Financial Chickens Coming Home to Roost!

That flapping you hear in the distance is the chickens coming home to roost. We have lived selfishly, forgotten God, broken rules of common sense, spent money we did not have (to impress people we do not like), and lived as if there were no tomorrow—but there is a tomorrow, and it will be a […]

Major Disaster Requires God, Groceries, Gold, Guns, Garden!

I’m not certain that some rogue nation will explode an EMP device over the U.S. knocking out all electronics including automobiles, cell phones, air travel, radio and television stations, computers, etc., or that a natural solar storm will accomplish the same thing. Nor can I be sure that Muslim fanatics will detonate a dirty bomb […]

Minimum Wage Column Produced Outrage!

My column, “Christ Would Not Vote to Increase the Minimum Wage!” produced an avalanche of Socialists’ outrage almost as bad as my no poodles in Paradise columns did. It seems the “animals in Heaven” crowd are similar to Socialists (even Christian Socialists) in that they don’t have the ability or aspiration to think. There is […]

Christ Would Not Vote to Increase the Minimum Wage!

Christ would not vote to increase the minimum wage, not because He does not want higher wages for everyone but because He taught true fairness. Moreover, it is not government’s prerogative to require social and economic equality only equal opportunity. He would not, yea could not, act contrary to what He has said and what […]

Our Financial Future: Slowdown, Shutdown, or Shakedown?

Only a fool would publically predict what will happen in the near future regarding the U.S. economy; however, I suggest that we will have a slowdown, shutdown, or shakedown–maybe all three. We are already in the slowdown; however, I think it is also probable that the other two disasters are in store for all of […]

Will Blood Flow Down Wall Street?

While I am not usually a pessimist, I believe that blood will soon flow in the streets, especially Wall Street and that street is connected to Main Street. You should prepare for financial and probably political chaos ahead. If you are planning on Social Security or even a corporate pension to support you, you may […]

Where Do You Really Think America is Headed?

Every Wednesday I publish one of my earlier columns that I hope will be instructive, informative, inspiring, and maybe infuriating. The following column was first published in 2010: An old college friend asked me recently where I really think America is headed. I basically said that our nation is an out-of-control train running top speed […]

Prepare for: Recession, Depression, or Panic?

Each Wednesday I publish one of my earlier columns that I hope will be informative, instructive, and sometime inspiring. At times, it is infuriating! The following column was published in 2008. It was a fantastic year when the stock market boomed and major U.S. companies made huge profits in domestic and foreign markets. New technology […]
