Big Nanny in New York wants to ban big sodas.
The problem with unions: good workers get punished. So do average workers. Because of coercion, unions only work for union king pins, their thugs and poor workers. That's why unions are almost extinct.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Three EU committees reject ACTA. Apparently the anti-IP backlash is growing.
The US government rejects surrendering its control over the internet to the UN. Believe it or not, this is a good thing.
I ofter wonder why our economy hasn't collapsed sooner.
"That the whole democratic house of cards has not yet completely collapsed speaks volumes about the still tremendous creative power of capitalism, even in the face of ever-increasing governmental strangulation. And this fact also allows us to conjecture about what economic ‘miracles’ would be possible if we had unimpeded capitalism liberated from such parasitism."There's no doubt about that. But there's more to it. Mises explained the three phases of inflation:
"Mises explained the three phases of inflation. In the first phase people save as before, because they believe that prices will either stabilize or fall to previous levels. In the second phase people accelerate their spending, because they see that their money deteriorates over time. In the third phase people exchange their money for whatever they can–the flight to real value. This is the crack-up boom."It's coming. So far it hasn't come because, despite our deepening economic catastrophe, the US still looks like a safe haven compared to Europe.
TAX AND SPEND:
High taxes are driving people out of Maryland.
There's nothing secure about getting rid of cash. Can you imagine allowing a complete stranger to access your money through your phone? There's a reason we run anti-virus programs.
Hero in Seattle massacre threw stools at shooter.
Hamiltion-Fairfield man killed in Afghanistan.
Apparently John Edwards still has enough clout to manage a hung jury on five counts. I guarantee you that trail has even more corruption than the standard, every day trial. Just like the media didn't want to talk about his affair and their cover-up for years, I bet they won't talk about his jury tampering and their cover-up for more years.
Democrats expect Walker to win his recall election in Wisconsin, so they're trying to downplay the significance.
Remember when Obama's stooges staged that bogus women's birth control hearing and as a result he did so well with women? Now Romney is doing well with women. What changed? Romney became the defacto Republican nominee. Now it's the terrible Obama versus one specific guy who everybody believes will be less bad. I don't know how Obama can stage a significant, phony economic recovery - he and Bernanke are doing well at staging a tepid, phony recovery - but if he can't figure it out, he's going to lose.
If you ever want a reminder that the country is racing to the left, a former Democrat rising star, a Congressional Black Caucus member, has joined the Republican party. Show me a Republican who doesn't support all of ten of Karl Marx's communist planks plus government-run health care. Everybody in Congress supports Marx's policies. They're all leftists.
The media investigates Romney's birth certificate. I can't help but laugh. You can't make this stuff up. I bet these media people laugh their asses off over drinks at how they play us for fools and get away with it.
