The world situation is grim at the moment; no one can deny that. But there are plenty of hopeful developments that show the future is not written in stone and there are things that we can do to turn things around.
Given that the genie is out of the bottle on these technologies, it would be naive to believe that it will go away.
...the best part of having a family foundation? All your family, friends, associates and contacts get a chance to dip their snoot into the trough of filthy, filthy conflict-of-interest lucre, too!
...even if Google does launch such a system, it is doomed to failure. The internet is one of the last, best bastions of the free market in action that we have in our stultified, regulated, controlled, manipulated economy.
So why is this important? As I've pointed out in these pages before, in recent years we have witnessed the beginnings of a rift in the the US-Saudi relationship.
...modern trade agreements are often less about trade and more about giant multinational corporations finding new ways to rig the economic system to benefit themselves.
So who is going so crazy for this royal baby? Surely no one who is familiar with the real history of the reign of the "Windsors,"... it's easier to understand why every royal event is so celebrated in the media if we first understand a few things about the British royal family...
...far beyond protecting the drug trade, NATO forces have long been implicated in shipping the drugs out of the country and helping bring them to the world market.
f the allegations contained in the claim are true ... then perhaps Sarao's market spoofing can be blamed for the crash in the same way that a single straw can be blamed for breaking a camel's back.
In that report... SIPRI puts hard numbers to what we already know to be true: that the powers-that-shouldn't-be are still spending unprecedented amounts of money on armaments.
But whether we're talking about law and order or the New World Order... we are ultimately talking about the same thing: an order based on a hierarchical view of society where a few lawgivers regulate, proscribe, manipulate, inhibit and control the actions of the masses.
...just when you think things couldn't get any stranger, signs of total economic insanity continue to trickle out of Europe.
The overall sentiment... will be appreciated by many of the readers of this column. The idea that these abuses are endemic to government itself, however, and not just examples of the abuses of tyrannical governments...well, that's a harder pill to swallow.
As various sites pointed out with regard to the Louisiana story, the government moving to ban cash is a further encroachment on property rights and due process. It is also a move that disproportionately hurts the poor...

You know things are bad when even the progressives and socialists who voted you into power are calling you out for capitulating to the banksters.
The deeper truth is that none of these agreements, pacts, spontaneously arose out of the ether. They are the end result of decades of plans for a merger of national governments into regional entities that themselves will be subsumed behind the scenes by trade pacts, treaties a...
Not only is Jeb a Bohemian Grove member, just like his father and brother, and not only is he a committed CFR-supporting globalist, as discussed above, but his administration is guaranteed to be a virtual carbon copy of his brother's.
What many who are living through this age of jobless recovery know all too well is that these markets are hopelessly manipulated, and that the trading taking place in these markets is subject to the same parlor tricks that define the GDP numbers...
