Because nothing says economic strength like nominal equity market returns.
- Just ask Venezuelans, who have beaten Argentina by a nose so far this decade.
And speaking of saying nothing...guess who can't restrain himself from taking credit for the S&P's new record high with yet another televised teleprompter recital?
- Yes, Obonehead.
And last decade? Zimbabwe was the winner.
- As Kyle Bass said: "Zimbabwe's stock market was the best performer of (this) decade - but your entire portfolio now buys you three eggs."
Just a few more bouts of QE and the FED will make America #1!

JQE (Japanese Quantitative Easing) aka "Abenomics" gives everyone a holiday 'trick' today by suddenly increasing to 80-trillion Yen.
- Depreciating the Yen (making it worth less) is NO treat, make no mistake.
While the GOJ (Government of Japan) daily tells its subjects that they have things well in hand, and are on exactly the right track, the disconnect between government delusion and the reality faced by the people is tangible.
- Sound familiar?
The only thing going UP is the rate of bankruptcies. You don't have to be able to read Japanese to understand this chart.
- In 2014 YTD alone the bankruptcy rate has increased 140%.

This is it. Week Nine of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek Out new life for the Senate, to Boldly hand Harry Reid a trick instead of a treat! Last call, people!
Focusing on the Senate races is it worth ten bucks a week to you (four pounds of candy corn?) to eliminate Reid's control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?
With that in mind, these are the eight candidates we've backed to date:
Scott Brown - New Hampshire -2.2
Cory Gardner - Colorado +3.3
Bill Cassidy - Louisiana +4.5
Thom Tillis - North Carolina -1
Tom Cotton - Arkansas +5
Joni Ernst - Iowa +2.1
David Perdue - Georgia +.4
Dan Sullivan - Alaska +2.2
(All polls via Real Clear Politics)
Originally, the plan was to contribute to the race in MI, where the Dem has a double digit lead. Therefore, my recommendation is to tag one of the above with a second contribution and put your money where it may do the most good.
(If you mark your contribution as "Ten Buck Friday", they'll see if the blogosphere can give them a little bump.)
Be sure to vote this coming Tuesday. Take a friend!
