Peter Schiff issues an "I told you so", listing many of his past predictions and showing how they've come true, and contrasts them with the so-called experts who are invariably wrong. Good for Schiff. Maybe more people will start listening to him instead of the idiots posing as experts.
TAX AND SPEND:
FEMA sends emergency crews up and down east coast in case hurricane Earl hits so they can retard efforts to save lives, clean up and rebuild.
Three waves of new taxes.
Because they are heavily regulated by government, flight data recorders haven't advanced in 50 years. Government is the enemy of progress and humanity.
Whole Foods CEO flatly states Whole Foods will never do another merger because the FTC makes the process too difficult and too expensive.
Ben Bernanke is making outlandish, incorrect claims. Of course he is. Do you expect him to tell the truth? He's an aristocrat like any other, so he says whatever it takes to keep his phony-baloney job. More translation of Bernanke's remarks show how the Fed has really screwed us.
Empowered patients fed up with being railroaded by our government dominated health care system are pushing back against doctors for unnecessary tests.
GLOBAL WARMING AND ENERGY:
Deepening La Nina portends cold winter like in 2008.
"An independent investigation into the UN’s climate change body has warned it to stop lobbying and to restrict its role to explaining the science behind any changes in global temperature."That and a dollar will buy you cheap cup of coffee. Calls for IPCC head to resign. If he does, he'll just be replaced by somebody equally as corrupt or worse.
Red light camera increases accidents by 40 percent in Baytown, Texas. The uniformed tax collectors don't care about safety. They're in it for the money and the kicks.
Showboating cops kill peaceful man whom they could have easily arrested in the parking lot since they regularly met him there to set him up for a drug bust.
"When the cops invaded Cole's apartment, the lights were out and a television offered the only illumination. In defiance of protocol, Yant -- acting without backup -- kicked in the bathroom door. He found Cole squatting in front of the toilet, apparently trying to dispose of a minuscule amount of marijuana.
According to the story Yant told the inquest, Cole "turned towards me, rotated his body," and assumed a shooter's stance. The detective was supposedly able to see all of this despite the fact that it was dark and the barrel-mounted flashlight on his rifle wasn't working.
That account can't be reconciled with the findings of Dr. Lisa Gavin, a medical examiner with the Clark County Coroner's Office, who said that the physical evidence shows Cole was facing away from Yant when he was fatally shot. The bullet that killed Cole followed a downward trajectory through his cheek into his neck. "Of course the trigger-happy cop who shot him lied about the circumstances on the stand.
Tensions on the border between giants China and India.
"The highly respected British magazine The Economist featured a front-page article in their 21 August issue about the possibility of a major war between China and India.
I’ve been thinking about this scenario for over a decade, and authored a book, War at the Top of the World, that warned of the dangers of a future Sino-Indian conflict.
Just thinking about this topic staggers the imagination. China and India account for 2.3 billion people, a third of the world’s total population."Yikes.
One of four Americans now believes that President Obama is a closet Muslim. I like how this article calls these people wrong as if this is a matter of fact, not opinion. All I know is Obama is not who he says he is, and I don't believe a word he says.
Everywhere I drive in Dayton, workers are tearing up more roads. It never ends. Obama's stimulus boondoggle is literally funding the digging of holes and refilling them in. I just traveled to Maryland and back and no place in between is as torn up as the Dayton area. Because so many workers have been siphoned out of the productive economy into this political boondoggle, wealth creation in Dayton is plummeting and unemployment continues to rise.
Never missing a chance to sell papers by alarming people, this story says hurricane Earl is heading for the east coast when actually the projected track shows it missing the US entirely.
Mark Sisson's definitive guide to grains. Executive summary: they're bad for you.
