Subsidizing Doctors Not to Practice / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Walter_Brasch

Clutching a sheaf of newspaper clippings in one hand and a medical bag in the other, Dr. Franklin Peterson Comstock III, knocking down pregnant ladies, students, the elderly, and even two burly construction workers who were waiting for a bus, rushed past me, leaving me in a close and personal encounter with the concrete. Since he had given up medicine to invest in a string of service stations and an oil distributorship, I assumed what was in his medical bag was the morning’s take from obscene profits.

The Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Tragedy - Print the Legend / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

The Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman tragedy has become one of those transcendent events that dominates the national discourse and throws light on dimly lit aspects of our society. Obviously, the case touches most closely on issues of race relations, media culture, and the politicization of the justice system. It also reveals how preconceived emotional commitments to a narrative can consistently trump demonstrable facts. These tendencies are also present in the polarized discussion about the persistent weakness of the U.S. economy. In both cases, the majority of observers have chosen to believe an emotionally comfortable narrative while ignoring a far more likely, ambiguous, and unsatisfying reality.

New Glass-Steagall Act Key to Ending Too Big to Fail Banks / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Garrett Baldwin writes: Last week, four senators that include Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) introduced a bill to reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act.

The 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act, as it's called, would bring back many of the provisions of the former law and strengthen language to limit financial speculation by the big banks, reduce risk, and attempt to end "Too Big to Fail" once and for all.

And once again, in an effort to help get the wheels of the US economy turning more briskly, the government has managed to grease the axle and flatten the tires at the same time.

How State Education Religiously Conditions Us into Become Slaves to the Elite / Politics / Educating Children

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In the west we are born into societies that put the child (individual) on a perpetual conveyor belt towards religiously following the states education program. Where the child is constantly being conditioned to follow the rules as laid down by the elite that controls society. The child is conditioned to be always focused on working towards a far distant future reward (target job), where all of the education the child is in receipt of are steps on the path towards being rewarded with the hoped for job and accompanying wealth and prosperity.

Nuclear Steam Rising – From Reuters / Politics / Nuclear Power

The very same Reuters which rushed to be the first agency to spread the June news about Fukushima that “Tepco is being overwhelmed with contaminated liquids as it flushes water over the three reactors at the seaside plant that had meltdowns after an earthquake and tsunami two years ago”, with Strontium-90 levels 125 times above the pre-catastrophe level, now tells us that restarting Japan's nuclear power fleet is seen by “Abe” and his team as the must have to top all must haves. Reuters reported today (18 July) that:

Student Loan Interest Rates Still Tangled Up In Congress / Politics / Student Finances

By: Money_Morning

Tara Clarke writes: Student debt in the United States has already surpassed the country's auto loans and consumer credit card debt. A student loan bubble looms on America's horizon, and promises dark times should it ever burst.

And earlier this month, the student loan problem worsened.

Federally subsidized Stafford loan interest rates doubled from 3.4% to 6.8% after Congress missed the July 1st 2013 deadline, and instead recessed for the Independence Day holiday.

Egyptians Need What Americans Need - More Economic Freedom / Politics / Social Issues

By: LewRockwell

Walter E. Williams writes: What Egyptian citizens must recognize is that political liberty thrives best where there’s a large measure of economic liberty. The Egyptian people are not the problem; it’s the environment they’re forced to live in. Why is it that Egyptians do well in the U.S. but not Egypt? We could make the same observation about Nigerians, Cambodians, Jamaicans and many other people who leave their homeland and immigrate to the U.S. For example, Indians in India suffer great poverty. But that’s not true of Indians who immigrate to the U.S. They manage to start more Silicon Valley companies than any other immigrant group, and they do the same in Massachusetts, Texas, Florida, New York and New Jersey.

Why Governments Can Do No Good / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jeff_Berwick

Government cannot do any desirable thing better than the market. It's physically impossible for them to do so, like chewing on your own jawbone. By its very nature, government is designed to disregard actual wants. It pretends to listen while it simply imposes. It steals money to fund whatever “services” it claims to be providing. That theft makes the situation a monopoly based on the violence inherent in the threat of force (kidnapping, caging and possible murder) behind the collection of taxes.

Barclays, Energy Regulators Versus Market Riggers / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Andrew_McKillop

WORLDWIDE PROBLEM
Hailed as Croatia stepping out of the shadows left by the break up of Yugoslavia and the ethnic cleansing war of the 1990s, and following 8 years of negotiations, on July 1st Croatia became the 28th member of the E.U. One of its first decisions was to join the little-heard-of CEER or Council of European Energy Regulators, as well as engaging in higher profile bargaining about which Croatian politician will become the 28th Commissioner of the E.C.

Oil's Middle East Fallacy, Egypt Crisis It`s Jobs Stupid….. / Politics / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

A couple of weeks ago Egypt demonstrations led to the Mursi administration being removed from office, who was elected from the last set of demonstrations. What Mursi and many media analysts failed to realize is that the demonstrations weren`t really about democracy, religion, philosophy or ideology but were actually about jobs.

It’s the economy stupid, that is what the Egyptian people really care about, which is ironic because without a major overhaul in their country`s entire business structure, the one strategic advantage the country has is the tourist industry.

Chernobyl at Sea? Russia Building Floating Nuclear Power Plants / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: OilPrice_Com

So much for the lessons of Fukushima. Never mind oil spills, the Russian Federation is preparing an energy initiative that, if it has problems, will inject nuclear material into the maritime environment.

Speaking to reporters at the 6th International Naval Show in St. Petersburg, Baltiskii Zavod shipyard general director Aleksandr Voznesenskii said that the Russian Federation's first floating nuclear power plant "should be operational by 2016."

Ron Paul - Let Market Forces Solve the Organ Transplant Crisis / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Ten-year old cystic fibrosis patient Sarah Murnaghan captured the nation’s attention when federal bureaucrats imposed a de facto death sentence on her by refusing to modify the rules governing organ transplants. The rules in question forbid children under 12 from receiving transplants of adult organs. Even though Sarah’s own physician said she was an excellent candidate to receive an adult organ transplant, government officials refused to even consider modifying their rules.

George Zimmerman, Is This Still America? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Thomas Sowell writes: There are no winners in the trial of George Zimmerman. The only question is whether the damage that has been done has been transient or irreparable.

Legally speaking, Zimmerman has won his freedom. But he can still be sued in a civil case, and he will probably never be safe to live his life in peace, as he could have before this case made him the focus of national attention and orchestrated hate.

George Zimmerman, Prosecutorial Abuse, and the Sorry Politics of Race / Politics / US Politics

By: William_Anderson

As a somewhat casual observer of George Zimmerman’s show trial, I was surprised that it ended with a “not guilty” verdict, given how the politics of race had so infected the entire saga from beginning to the announcement of the jury’s decision. After all, not only was Zimmerman indicted on charges that assumed he had intentionally pursued Trayvon Martin with personal ill will and animosity with his being in that supposed frame of mind when he shot the teenager, but the very President of the United States already had effectively declared Zimmerman guilty of a racially-motivated murder.

Money. Religion. Power. / Politics / Religion

By: Raul_I_Meijer

French President Hollande declared on TV on his nation's national holiday that the recession in France is over. You can just see the discussions in the Elysee Palace: we can't say that!, well, we have some graphs that show a little recovery, we just need to hide the ones that don't, and the president desperately needs a positive message to look presidential on Quatorze Juillet, so why don't we just go for it, instruct the interviewers not to push too hard; what's important is not whether it's true or not, but whether or not we can make people believe what he says, if only for the day. And so it was decided: the emperor would have clothes for a few hours.

Glass-Steagall was repealed by Congress back in 1999.

The Global Gulag - Psychotic Militarization of Law Enforcement / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

How did it ever come down to abandoning peace keeping and accepting law enforcement by any means? Even the New York Times expresses alarm in, When the Police Go Military.

"The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 generally bars the military from law enforcement activities within the United States. But today, some local and city police forces have rendered the law rather moot. They have tanks - yes, tanks, often from military surplus, for use in hostage situations or drug raids - not to mention the sort of equipment and training one would need to deter a Mumbai-style guerrilla assault."
