The end of the year is a great time to review the fleeting days, and reflect upon the things that transpired. Today we’ll detail the top ten things that make perfect sense or not much sense at all.

  1. Popular women’s periodical Glamour Magazine named a man as woman of the year. Bruce Jenner took the [not so] prestigious award. More here

  2. The Federal Reserve raised interest rates, which should have wrecked the economy. The government has officially been able to manipulate every aspect of monetary policy. End the Federal Reserve! Bring integrity to our banking system.More here

  3. Americans refuse to wake to the certain danger ahead... Whatever is on television is what people will believe. A slow constant drip of misinformation has led to a docile inoperable populace.

It is looking scary for the market and it doesn’t look like there is going to be any life in the market in the near term.” This doesn’t sound like a global economic recovery to us. More here

  9. Congress has approved the national debt to nearly be doubled by the time President Obama finally leaves office. Is he gone yet? Will he go? Want some Obama humor? Click here to listen Obama explain his lie.
