All Saints Day 11-01 My Challenge To Christians

Today is All Saints Day. It is the day Christians honor their saints. Tomorrow is All Souls Day which is dedicated to remembering those good Christians who died over the past year. A dear friend once told me: "America is sliding down a greased pole straight to hell." I challenge the churches of America to read the following news of the day. I ask them to do what is in their power to stop both the destruction of the world by the American government and the planned demolition of our economy and our way of life to give what remains to a global authority run by Goldman Sachs and friends.

SETTLERS REJOICE AT PALESTINIAN’S SUFFERING Settlers perform Talmudic rituals outside a confiscated Palestinian

9yr-old boy tortured, says former Guantanamo detainee “I was interrogated hundreds of times by the FBI, CIA and even MI5, beaten, and subjected to continuous torture, sexual degradation, forced drugging and religious persecution,” he said. With their hands and feet chained and in a foetal position on the floor, the three were accused of making a video of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. The three -- now known in the media as the “Tipton Three” -- were released in 2004 without being charged after they were forced to sign a paper to admit their involvement in making the video ... Rape and abuse of women and children by US troops were almost a daily affair over at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad ... Her only daughter and nephew were beaten and tortured naked for six months until Jameelah admitted that she supported the resistance, she claimed. She also witnessed other abuses like sleep deprivation, forced stress positions, forced nudity, the use of dogs to scare and bite prisoners, death threats and sexual abuse. Jameelah and her family were freed in July 2004 without any charges brought against them ... the youngest detainee he knew of was a nine-year-old boy who was also tortured like the rest.

What Christians Don’t Know About Israel “He’s been fired.” She indicated it was because he had signed a contract for a book that was sympathetic to Palestinians. Griffin, she said, had no time to see me.
Later, I met with another MacMillan official, William Curry. “I was told to take your manuscript to the Israeli Embassy, to let them read it for mistakes,” ... “Were there mistakes?” “Not mistakes as such. But it shouldn’t be published. It’s anti-Israel.” ... The Same Question Speaking of these injustices, I invariably heard the same question, “How come I didn’t know this?” Or someone might ask, “But I haven’t read about that in my newspaper.” ... How handily these liberal Jewish opinion-molders tend to diminish the Palestinians, to make them invisible, or to categorize them all as “terrorists.” ... Over five decades now, Zionists have killed Palestinians with impunity. And in the 1996 shelling of a U.N. base in Qana, Lebanon, the Israelis killed more than 100 civilians sheltered there. As an Israeli journalist, Arieh Shavit, explains of the massacre, “We believe with absolute certitude that right now, with the White House in our hands, the Senate in our hands and The New York Times in our hands, the lives of others do not count the same way as our own.” ... In the teachings of Christ, there was a break from such Talmudic teachings. He sought to heal the wounded, to comfort the downtrodden.

My Comment: There were 1,600 people in Jerusalem at the time of David. There never was a Temple of Solomon. There never was a unified Kingdom of Israel and Judah. The original Jews were Canaanites but lived in the hills and separated from their fellow Canaanites who are in part the ancestors the modern day Palestinians.

Pelosi Health Care Bill Blows a Kiss to Trial Lawyers Section 2531, entitled “Medical Liability Alternatives,” establishes an incentive program for states to adopt and implement alternatives to medical liability litigation. [But]…… a state is not eligible for the incentive payments if that state puts a law on the books that limits attorneys’ fees or imposes caps on damages. So, you can’t try to seek alternatives to lawsuits if you’ve actually done something to implement alternatives to lawsuits. Brilliant! The trial lawyers must be very happy today!

Hillary Tells The Truth in Pakistan: “The percentage of taxes on GDP (in Pakistan) is among the lowest in the world... We (the United States) tax everything that moves and doesn’t move, and that’s not what we see in Pakistan,” she said. What she did not say is that if America was not occupying half of the world and actively killing people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen, our taxes would not be burdening us to the point of exhaustion.

Americans Gotta Read the "War Crimes Times!"
The War Crimes Times Mission Statement

The War Crimes Times provides information to the general public, to law-makers, and to our justice-seeking allies on war crimes, war criminals, and on the necessity and means of prosecuting war criminals. When national leaders initiate hostilities they create the conditions—the extreme use of force coupled with limited accountability—for the war crimes which invariably follow. War crimes are therefore an inherent part of war. The suffering caused and the enmity aroused by war crimes must be regarded as costs of war. Since these and other costs far exceed any benefits of war, we seek to end war as a tool of international policy. Towards this goal, we believe that holding war criminals accountable will send a strong message to those currently in power to very carefully weigh all the consequences of the decision to go to war. While we recognize that United States has long relied on military force to further its foreign policy goals, we feel that the Bush Administration’s blatant and egregious violations of international law demand special attention. The WCT has resolved to see that Bush, Cheney, & Co. are prosecuted for war crimes no matter how long it takes. There is no statute of limitations on war crimes.

Anyone who has been in the market for any length of time knows all of our current problems emanated straight from the FED. It is now obvious that the take down of the dollar is deliberate and there is little effort to save it; just an effort to bring it down slowly and incrementally. There is no question banks will continue to get cheap loans and either deposit the money with the FED for a 3% gain to buy Treasuries or opportune the markets.

Telling Wall Street to kiss their assets goodbye: Florida considers state-owned bank even though this is the “secret” to the state with the lowest unemployment in the nation along with a record budget surplus (it’s North Dakota, one of only two solvent states today), the idea of a state-owned bank creating its own credit is a new idea for many Americans --- If Florida copies North Dakota, we might all follow their example and recover.

This is happening because we do not have a state owned bank like North Dakota. Market Cheers Over Ugly GDP Report A misguided Cash-for-Clunkers added a one-time contribution of 1.66 percentage points to GDP. Auto sales have since collapsed so all the program did is move some demand forward ... Government spending increased at 7.9 percent in the third quarter which is certainly nothing to cheer about ... real disposable personal income decreased 3.4 percent ... the only reason GDP rose is wasteful government spending, cash-for-clunkers and extremely unaffordable housing tax credits

Bank-Favoring Censorship by Congress The object lesson is the gutting of the falsely-branded derivatives reform bill. It arrived with a loophole so large you could drive a truck through it, namely that customized derivatives were not covered. So this bill will do nothing to impede the growth of complex opaque products; in fact, it encourages it, since banks will have no oversight if they tweak a product so that is can be deemed “customized.” It was further weakened by excluding most of the banks in America and by excluding a whole swathe of end users. The final insult was making the derivatives clearing house self-regulating.

(A) closely monitor the condition of any undercapitalized insured depository institution;
(B) closely monitor compliance with capital restoration plans, restrictions, and requirements imposed under this section; and (C) periodically review the plan, restrictions, and requirements applicable to any undercapitalized insured depository institution to determine whether the plan, restrictions, and requirements are achieving the purpose of this section.

Thursday 10-29 Goldman Sachs: Transparency Sucks

Matt Taibbi: Goldman Sachs Lobbies Senate, Says Full Transparency Sucks
Instead, the bank argues that an over-the-counter market in which big traders like Goldman get to do deals in the shadows in “dark pools” without the retail investor having any knowledge of what the hell is going on is somehow better for everybody, that this somehow produces better prices. Of course the reality is that the two-tiered system creates one pool of fools whose every movement is visible to every animal on the Serengeti, and another pool of giant bloodthirsty carnivores who get to walk around invisible, picking off the dik-diks one by one. Everyone I showed this to had the same reaction — “I can’t believe they said this out loud.”

Section 1204 is unlimited in dollar amount and is a permanent grant of power to the executive branch. TARP contained some limits on executive compensation and an array of special oversight authorities. Section 1204 contains absolutely no limits on executive compensation and no special oversight.

By monetizing debt to support their budget deficit and ‘save the system’, both entities have chosen to walk a well worn path traveled by so many governments before them.

Crackdowns on illegal immigrants and other law enforcement efforts are driving gangs out of Northern Virginia and into Maryland and the District, a report released Monday concluded. The report said the task force's success is the result of Virginia law enforcement's use of anti-gang policing measures, including the referring of suspected illegal immigrants to federal authorities. Since the task force was created in 2003, it has arrested 952 gang members, more than 40 percent of whom were illegal immigrants, the report said

If the spot price at the close of trading on the day that gold (and silver) options contracts expire is higher than the contract price on a call option, the owner will exercise the option to demand immediate delivery of physical gold. The higher the price of gold, the more call options that will be exercised. Conversely, a lower gold spot price will reduce the demand for gold for immediate delivery. There is a major block of call options at $1,050, so expect prices to stay below that level through Wednesday night.

Lawyers in Britain and other European countries have been collecting testimonies of Palestinians and other data from Gaza since January, which they maintain proves that war crimes were committed by the IDF during the offensive. The evidence is linked to IDF officers holding ranks of battalion commander and higher, who were in command during various stages of Cast Lead.

Only 3 or 4 percent of you will actually find a job related to architecture. We all sat there, letting it all sink in. After a few months, it all proved to be true. Even the amount of students that dropped out of college increased to at least 50%. They either [saw] no point in studying something that would not make much of a difference in their future salaries, had no money to keep themselves in college, or simply had to drop college to work and support their families. That happened in Argentina and is happening in America.

Audio Broadcast: REPOS EXPLAINED Muhammad Rafeeq explains Repos and how dangerous they are. If there are no buyers of US Treasuries, a big NY bank can buy the bonds and sell them as a repo to the Chinese or to the FED. What they do is sell the income on the bonds for say 6 months with a provision that the NY bank takes the bond back at the end of the term. Where this blows up is that if Citibank or Bank of America or J P Morgan Chase go bankrupt, then the bonds become the property of the person holding the Repo. This could dump hundreds of billions of dollars in bonds onto the market on one day. Muhammad Rafeeq thinks Citibank will go bankrupt. He also believes (as does Max Keiser) that the big banks can only stay afloat by blowing up other banks and acquiting the assets (and giving the liabilities to the government or more properly speaking to you the taxpayer.)

In this Audio Broadcast Muhammad Rafeeq says he talked to Chinese bank officials who made this startling revelation. Businessmen selling to Chinese businesses are required to accept dollars instead of their national currencies. They are then forced to sell the dollars themselves thus allowing the Chinese to quietly dump the dollar.

JP Morgan 2009 Q3 Results – Miracle or Mirage? Try to read and understand what he is saying. Muhammad Rafeeq This is by the same man who was interviewed in the above two broadcasts. One important point is that when a bank sells a Repo, the sale is deposited as cash and appears as such on their books. J P Chase is dangerously short on real cash.

Amazing Before & After Pictures Of Detroit Recently, at a dinner party, a friend mentioned that he’d never seen so many outsiders moving into town…Two other guests that night, a couple in from Chicago, had also just invested in some Detroit real estate. That weekend Jon and Sara Brumit bought a house for $100. …. A local couple, Mitch Cope and Gina Reichert, started the ball rolling. An artist and an architect, they recently became the proud owners of a one-bedroom house in East Detroit for just $1,900. Buying it wasn’t the craziest idea. The neighborhood is almost, sort of, half-decent. Yes, the occasional crack addict still commutes in from the suburbs but a large, stable Bangladeshi community has also been moving in.

Monday 10-26 Shriver Report: Women Breadwinners, Men Unemployed

JFK's Niece Maria Shriver Updates Her Uncle's Report On The Status of Women Written By Eleanor Roosevelt Excerpts: Women now make up half (49.8 percent) of employer's payrolls ... Men have lost three-out-of-four jobs so far since the Great Recession began in December 2007, leaving millions of wives to bring home the bacon while their husbands search for work ... (Poll of 3,413 people) Men and women agree that government and business are out of touch with the realities of how most families live and work today ... while women are now half of workers and mothers are breadwinners or co-breadwinners in the majority of families, institutions have failed to catch up to this reality ... Women receive 52 percent of high school diplomas, 62 percent of associate’s degrees, 57 percent of bachelor’s degrees and 50 percent of doctoral degrees and professional degrees ... women remain concentrated in the “helping” professions of health and education and are falling behind in entering the higher-paying fields of the future, including science, mathematics, engineering, and technology ... He finds that most men have chosen the path toward acceptance of greater gender equality ... The poll results reveal a truce in the battle of the sexes ...

Job Prospects Remain Dim for Millions of Workers

job prospects for the unemployed are increasingly more dismal. There are now 15.1 million unemployed ... A record 10.4 million of those who are unemployed are out of work because they lost their job. The remaining one third of the unemployed are either new labor market entrants, such as high school and college graduates just starting to look for work for the first time, or those re-entering the labor force, such as a former stay-at-home mother trying to get back into the workforce ... There are 1.5 million discouraged workers, with more men than women giving up their job search ... Since the recession began through August 2009, men have accounted for 72.3 percent of the total payroll jobs lost ... But government and education, which disproportionately employ women, have in recent months begun shedding jobs, and women’s job losses are accounting for an increasing share of the total ... The share of the U.S. population with a job was 58.8 percent in September, lower than at any time since 1983 ... The share of adult men with a job fell fourth-tenths of a percent last month to 67.0 percent. Prior to this recession, the share of adult men with a job had never fallen below 70 percent. The share of adult women with a job fell three-tenths of a percent to 55.8 percent, a low not seen since 1994. And women’s unemployment rate moved up two-tenths of a percent to 7.8 percent, a 26-year high ... More than 400,000 workers will exhaust their unemployment benefits this month. And an additional million will exhaust their long-term benefits by the end of the year ...

Women Breadwinners, Men Unemployed

there has been a sharp rise in the number of married couples where a woman is left to bring home the bacon because her husband is unemployed. What is striking is not only how many more families are experiencing unemployment among husbands, but also how this loss of the traditional breadwinner has occurred across a variety of demographic groups ... men losing three-out-of-every-four jobs lost. This puts a real strain on family budgets since women typically earn only 78 cents for every dollar men earn. In the typical married-couple family where both spouses work, the wife brings home just over a third—35.6 percent—of the family’s income ... they are living on just a third of their prior income ... there are 2.0 million working wives today with an unemployed husband ...

My Opinion: They need to send the illegal aliens and most of the H1B visa holders home to cut down on unemployment. As the article above indicated, imported unemployment is placing a lot of unneeded stress on American families.

US intelligence budget: $75 billion and 200,000 employees. Fusion centers will have access to classified military intelligence But early on, fusion centers like the notorious "red squads" of the 1960s and '70s, morphed into national security shopping malls where officials monitor not only alleged terrorists but also left-wing and environmental activists deemed threats to the existing corporate order ... The file details the placement of six intelligence contractors inside the Washington Joint Analytical Center (WAJAC) on behalf of the Washington State Patrol at a cost of around $110,000 per year each ... Such intelligence "fusion" centers, which combine the military, the FBI, state police, and others, have been internally promoted by the US Army as means to avoid restrictions preventing the military from spying on the domestic population. (Julian Assange, "The spy who billed me twice," Wikileaks, July 29, 2009) ... As the American Civil Liberties Union documented in their 2007 and 2008 reports on fusion center abuses, one motivation is precisely to subvert oversight laws which do not apply to private mercenary contractors ... since 9/11 "the Central Intelligence Agency has been spending 50 to 60 percent of its budget on for-profit contractors, or about $2.5 billion a year, and its number of contract employees now exceeds the agency's full-time workforce of 17,500." ... Shorrock learned that "no less than 70 percent of the nation's intelligence budget was being spent on contracts." However, the sharp spike in intelligence outsourcing to well-heeled security corporations comes with very little in the way of effective oversight ... After all, $75 billion buys a lot of silence.

Weekend Edition Keiser: Government Backing Americans Into A Corner

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert: The Government Has Backed Americans Into A Corner With Only Two Options Audio Broadcast: This week's show did not cover much of anything really new until the last few minutes. Max said the government is forcing people into making one of two decisions to survive. One is to go around borrowing as much as you can in dollars and to buy gold so you will have something left after the government kills the dollar. The other option is to quite literally revolt.

Max also said that Peter Schiff is the only one allowed to speak in the mainstream news media who is giving current market data to his listeners. By the way, Video: Peter Schiff just issued a Red Alert saying it is time to dump the dollar.

Video Is THIS how the bank bailout money is being used? Professor Chossudovsky emphasizes the bailouts will not help the crisis, but will exacerbate it. He explains that to pay for Obama's budget deficits, public roads and parks will be sold off to private companies and banks, who will charge user fees to citizens, and that these user fees will be used to pay back the bailout money to the government. In short, the government is helping the banks finance their own debt. He also says that bailed out banks are using the bailout money to buy up assets in the real economy ( such as industry, tech, & airline stocks) at rock bottom prices, which will dramatically change the ownership structure in America. Will this lead to the creation of a financial and industrial oligarchy?

It also represents a blow to the company's private-equity owners. In 2006, a group led by KKR & Co., Goldman Sachs Capital Partners and Five Mile Capital Partners acquired the lender GMAC LLC's commercial-real estate business and renamed it Capmark. As of March 31, the investor group owned about 75% of the company, with GMAC and its employees owning the balance. The Horsham, Pa., company recently reported a $1.6 billion second-quarter loss and warned it might be forced to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. KKR has already written down its investment in Capmark to zero.
Adding to Capmark's pressures, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. had notified the company that it must raise capital and boost liquidity at its Utah bank, which has roughly $10 billion in assets.

Friday 12-23 La Familia de Michoacán

Probe of Mexican drug cartel leads to nearly 1,200 arrests in U.S. The major Mexican drug gangs have 250,000 employees inside the US. If you add in the other foreign born gangs, the total number of foreign gang members is greater than the number of cops we have on the street.

La Familia Michoacana (drug cartel)La Familia Michoacana From Wikipedia: The Michoacán Family is a Mexican drug trafficking cartel based in Michoacán, Mexico —President Felipe Calderón's home state. Formerly answering to the Gulf Cartel —as part of Los Zetas[1][2] — it has split off as its own organization since 2006

La Familia emerged to the foreground in the 1990s as the Gulf Cartel's paramilitary group designed to seize control of the illegal drug trade in Michoacán state ... the La Familia members use murder and torture to quash rivals, while building a social base in the Mexican state of Michoacán. It is the fastest-growing cartel in the country’s drug war

In one incident in Uruapan in 2006, the cartel members tossed five decapitated heads onto the dance floor of the Sol y Sombra night club

Los Zetas Los Zetas is a Mexican drug gang. From Wikipedia: It is believed that they were originally trained at the military School of the Americas in the United States (Your tax dollars at work) ... by other foreign specialists of the United States, France and Israel ... the rival Sinaloa Cartel established its own heavily-armed enforcer gang, Los Negros ... Upon the arrest of Gulf Cartel boss, Osiel Cardenas Guillen in 2003, it is believed Los Zetas began transporting their own drug shipments through former Gulf Cartel routes[4] and made a collaboration pact with the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel.[12][13] ... Los Zetas are primarily based in the border region of Nuevo Laredo, with hundreds more throughout the country. In Nuevo Laredo it is believed they have carved the city into territories, placing lookouts at arrival destinations such as airports, bus stations and main roads.[3] In addition to conducting activities along the border, they are visible throughout the Gulf Coast region, in the Southern states of Tabasco, Yucatan, Quintana Roo, and Chiapas, and in the Pacific Coast states of Guerrero, Oaxaca, and Michoacán ... they may be active in Texas, other U.S. states[16] and in Italy ... While in prison, the head of the Tijuana Cartel, Arellano Felix and Gulf Cartel leader Osiel Cardenas, forged an alliance against the Sinaloa Cartel and its ally the Juarez Cartel ... The Sinaloa Cartel began to contest the Gulf Cartel’s domination of the coveted southwest Texas corridor following the arrest of Gulf Cartel leader Osiel Cardenas in March 2003 ...

US Filling up With Dumb People: Immigration's Ultimate Dilemma 42 million American adults can't read at all; 50 million are unable to read at a higher level that is expected of a fourth grader. • The number of adults that are classified as functionally illiterate increases by about 2.25 million each year. • 20 percent of high school seniors can be classified as being functionally illiterate at the time they graduate. Source: National Right to Read Foundation

Where Illiteracy Leads

• 70 percent of prisoners in state and federal systems can be classified as illiterate. • 85 percent of all juvenile offenders rate as functionally or marginally illiterate. • 43 percent of those whose literacy skills are lowest live in poverty. Source: National Institute for Literacy

Yet, with those disturbing figures, our U.S. Congress imports an added 2.5 million legal and illegal immigrants into this country every year

A Border Fence Would Stop The Drug Gangs Cold. The Colombians would have to find a route other than our southern border. Without money the Mexican government would soon win their battle against the drug gangs. And we would protect American workers who are suffering from a 17% unemployment rate. Any politician who opposes building a fence is either brain dead or a traitor.

Thursday 10-22 Will Resolution 377 Save The World?

UN endorses Goldstone: Can Israel now be held to account? (Resolution 377 grants the General Assembly authority to act) The U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC) in Geneva voted Friday to endorse the Goldstone report (which condemned Israel for war crimes in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza) by a large margin (26-5) ... The Mission concluded that there was sufficient evidence to suggest that Israeli actions constituted war crimes and even crimes against humanity ...

A number of organizations have suggested using the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA) Resolution 377, so-called ‘United for Peace.’ This resolution, promoted by the US, was adopted on November 3, 1950. It grants the GA authority to recommend collective measures for maintaining peace and security, when Security Council action has been blocked by a veto. This was the means for the United States to circumvent possible vetoes by the former Soviet Union during the Korean Wars: "[The GA] Resolves that if the Security Council, because of lack of unanimity of the permanent members (that means the US), fails to exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security in any case where there appears to be a threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression, the General Assembly shall consider the matter immediately with a view to making appropriate recommendations to Members for collective measures, including in the case of a breach of the peace or act of aggression the use of armed force when necessary, to maintain or restore international peace and security." UN Resolution 377 has been used ten times since its adoption.

We can only hope it is used an eleventh time to condemn Israel for the crimes it committed in the occupation of Palestine and a twelfth time against Bush and Cheney for the crime of aggressive war when they invaded Iraq and Afghanistan without provocation. Lest you think I am carried away please note that I expect the dollar to crash soon. Attitudes will change the day after the dollar dies.

New research shows vitamin D3 slashes risk of cancers by 77 percent; cancer industry refuses to support cancer prevention Exciting new research conducted at the Creighton University School of Medicine in Nebraska has revealed that supplementing with vitamin D3 and calcium can reduce your risk of cancer by an astonishing 77 percent. This includes breast cancer, colon cancer, skin cancer and other forms of cancer. This research provides strong new evidence that vitamin D3 is the single most effective medicine against cancer, far outpacing the benefits of any cancer drug known to modern science.

CAUTION: The human body balances calcium levels in the blood with magnesium and phosphorous in a 2 to 1 ratio so you need to take all three together if you are supplementing unless you eat red beef 3 times a day as it is high in phosphorous.

(Video) Ratigan Throws Down The Gauntlet At Goldman Sachs Dylan's proposals on how to effectuate the anti-Goldman movement:

•Move money to small banks

•Use cash, not credit cards

•Contact your lawmakers.

Video Ratigan Asks Important Questions In Advance Of Tomorrow's Bank Of America Congressional Hearing And some words of warning for Tim Geithner:

"The fact that Geithner is now in the cross hairs is causing people to say "oh wait a second, that is too close to President Obama" but the truth is President Obama is better jettisoning Geithner if he did wrong before he had this job, than he is going along with him as he becomes discredited when he says TARP money is important.... TARP money is slush money... it is campaign money."

We also enjoin Darrel Issa's call for readers to approach their elected officials to finally get to the bottom of this debacle before it is too late, and everyone has forgotten we were on the verge of a precipice and nothing changes until the next time the bubble pops and takes all of America with it. Indeed, this is not a left right issue, it is a right wrong issue.

7 Months After Stimulus 49 of 50 States Have Lost Jobs America Now Over 6 Million Jobs Shy of Administration's Projections Most of that 787 billion dollars Stimulus money has not been spent. Someone thought it would be a good idea to spend in 2010 which is an election year but look at the next story to see that is not a good strategy: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll 27% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13. - I have been following his support numbers and they have dropped from 32 to 27% or 5 points. Obama lost almost 15% of his support in a month. Look at the next few stories on jobs to see why.

Jobs Will Not Return Until 2017

States Report Widespread Job Losses in September This article uses government press release statistics which are deceptive but even the deception stats are bad. The U6 rate is 17% and the U3 rate is 7.2% less so we have to add 7.2 to these numbers. When I talk to people in the street, I always say the definition of unemployment used by Clinton in 1993 rather than U6. They don't know what U6 means

Africa - 1.02 Billion Hungry People In 2009 Nearly all the world's undernourished live in developing countries. In Asia and the Pacific, an estimated 642 million people are suffering from chronic hunger; in Sub-Saharan Africa 265 million; in Latin America and the Caribbean 53 million; in the Near East and North Africa 42 million; and in developed countries 15 million, according FAO's annual hunger report,

A barrel of oil hits $82 as dollar falls to fresh low against the euro; pump prices rising I wrote to my favorite news commentators in Paris and asked what they thought the reaction of both the traders and the general public will be when the price of oil hits $100 a barrel. It has moved $4 in the past week. If it only goes up $2 a week, oil will hit $102 in 10 weeks. My prediction on New Years Day was that gasoline would reach $4 a gallon in San Francisco or $3.50 in areas not under the control of the California state legislature. I made that prediction based upon the collapse of the dollar because I also predicted no war with Iran.

Short Sales: The Real Issue envision that we allow any number of people to buy fire insurance against your house. There's only one house, but ten fire insurance policies. Only one of those people (you) owns the house and only one of them (you) lives there, but ten people stand to collect whatever the damage amount is if there's a fire.

How likely would it be that someone would be sneaking around with a gas can at 3:00 AM were this to be allowed?

Now let's add another wrinkle to the mix - to collect on any of the insurance policies you must have possession of the house!

Tonight, you have a real fire and the house burns to the ground. The recovery value is zero; indeed, it might be negative (since you have to hire a bulldozer and cleanup crew to clear away the mess before you can rebuild.)

But if there are ten insurance policies, suddenly that burned out smoking hulk has value that doesn't really exist, and a bidding frenzy is likely to develop for the (one) house. See, without the (burned out) house to tender those insurance policies are worthless.

We don't allow this sort of thing in the insurance business because it both distorts the market and creates a reason for people to intentionally start fires.

Why do we allow it in the "credit default swap" business?

Did a few people intentionally start some (financial) fires?

Dollar Dumping Will Remain the Hot Trade Currency strategists say there is little to stop the dollar decline until U.S. officials convince markets they have the fortitude to curb deficits, or the Fed makes a move on rates.

Russia's Central Bank Buys 400,000 Ounces of Gold in September Governments and Hedge Funds and now Wall Street bonus recipients are the only major gold buyers according to Max Keiser. I thought the Russians had gold mines. Why are they buying in the open market? Could it be they are slowly dumping dollars?
