Government Shutdown Proves Roads Not Possible Without Government / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

It is often irritating for those of us who don't believe we need violent institutions (ie. government) to keep hearing the same refrain from non-believers over and over again, "But, what about my roads?"

We always reply, exasperated, that pavement is not impossible to have without theft and the fact that roads existed without government even in the US (as Walter Block wrote in "The Privatization of Roads And Highways").  And, TDV's own Gary Gibson has covered the topic many times including, "If One More Person Asks Me About the Roads...".

U.S. Government - What Will "shut down"? / Politics / US Politics

By: Sahil_Hafeez

Democrats and Republicans were unable to intention their contrasts over Obamacare and now the government is closed down.

Republicans in Congress declined to embrace a using bill unless it postponed the Affordable Care Act, the law conveying health protection to poorer Americans, which began to assume Oct. 1. Right away, the new monetary year begins; government authorities won't have the power to use money.

Obama Scaring Saudi Arabia / Politics / Middle East

By: Andrew_McKillop

PRINCELY TANTRUMS
Wall Street Journal reported, 29 September, that the Obama administration's overtures to Iran and handling of the Syrian crisis have outraged the Wahabite Kingdom. Saudi Arabian royals still imagine that Obama, and his sole French ally in the fumbled attempt to bomb Syria, want to and will boost the power of armed Sunni rebel groups on the ground in Syria. They want to arm the djihadists, Saudi royals believe, but they could be very wrong.

U.S. and Iranian Realities / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Anonymous

U.S. President Barack Obama called Iranian President Hassan Rouhani last week in the first such conversation in the 34 years since the establishment of the Islamic Republic. The phone call followed tweets and public statements on both sides indicating a willingness to talk. Though far from an accommodation between the two countries, there are reasons to take this opening seriously -- not only because it is occurring at such a high level, but also because there is now a geopolitical logic to these moves. Many things could go wrong, and given that this is the Middle East, the odds of failure are high. But Iran is weak and the United States is avoiding conflict, and there are worse bases for a deal.

Ridiculous Ways U.S. Government Shutdown Will Affect You / Politics / Government Spending

By: Jeff_Berwick

Millions around the world today are hoping the US federal government shuts down at midnight on Monday.  Many have thoughts of wars and occupations ending in their regions... but, sadly, this is not part of the "services" that will be cut during a shutdown.

In fact, not only will the Department of Offense continue on as usual but so will all the tyrannical agencies such as the DEA, IRS, ATF, CIA and countless other alphabet soup agencies of oppression.

U.S. Government Shutdown - A Grand Bargain for Liberty? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

As I write this, it appears that the federal government is about to shut down because the House and Senate cannot agree on whether to add language defunding or delaying Obamacare to the "Continuing Resolution". Despite all the hand-wringing heard in DC, a short-term government shut down (which doesn't actually shut down the government) will not cause the country to collapse.

Crude Oil Helps Unfreeze US-Iranian Relations / Politics / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

SAVING PRESIDENT OBAMA
Missing in the diplomatic and media hoopla surrounding US-Iranian relations, for example the missing “photo op” handshake between the USA's Obama and Iran's new president Rouhani at the UN General Assembly, the three-letter-word oil was also absent.

For some, given Obama's often farcical and fumbling foreign policy initiatives, it might seem the mounting momentum for an end to Iranian sanctions is only another initiative with no real goal except saving the president. As we know, a phone call between the two turned out to be “almost as good as a handshake”. As we also know, ending sanctions and normalizing US-Iranian relation may move very rapidly – whatever Israel can do trying to slow it.

Did Putin Quietly Play the Debt Card Over Syria? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Ron_Holland

"They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy. They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar. If [in America] there is a systemic malfunction, this will affect everyone. Countries like Russia and China hold a significant part of their reserves in American securities. There should be other reserve currencies." – Vladimir Putin in 2011

Barack Obama - The Blackberry President / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

TIME MOVES ON
At the height of his short-lived media acclaim and uncritical public support, Obama was happy to show he knew how to use, and liked his Blackberry cellphone. Time has also moved on for Blackberry. Like Nokia it missed the boat for upmarket Internet devices. It was unable to adapt to the surge of new and flashier gimmicks from Samsung and Apple. Blackberry is now a corporate disaster.  On its August sales, it lost nearly $24 for every $100 of the dwindling sales it could garner. T-Mobile, the fourth-largest US wireless provider said it will no longer stock Blackberry devices in its shops and will only ship them when people make a written request.

Why Israel will Not Join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty / Politics / Israel

By: Global_Research

Timothy Alexander Guzman writes: Iran’s New President Hassan Rouhani has requested that Israel to sign and become a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as he spoke for a second time at the United Nation General Assembly. “As long as nuclear weapons exist, the threat of their use exists,” Rouhani said, citing the American bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Rouhani is calling for “nuclear-free zone” in the Middle East. Israel is the only country in the Middle East that had not and will not sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel would use nuclear weapons if it felt it was threatened by any nation in the Middle East.

Reasons for U.S. Income Inequality / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_Mills

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston says the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of Americans, after being adjusted for inflation, grew by only $59 on average between 1966 and 2011, over the same period the average income of the top 10 percent of Americans grew by $116,071.

A 2011 study from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported incomes for the bottom fifth of Americans grew 20 percent between 1979 and 2007. Members of the top one percent saw their incomes grow by 275 percent during the same period,

The Perfect Alternative to Wall Street Banks / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

A national postal and infrastructure bank could protect our money, rebuild the nation, and won't cost taxpayers a dime.

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is the nation’s second largest civilian employer after WalMart. Although successfully self-funded throughout its long history, it is currently struggling to stay afloat. This is not, as sometimes asserted, because it has been made obsolete by the Internet. In fact the post office has gotten more business from Internet orders than it has lost to electronic email. What has pushed the USPS into insolvency is an oppressive 2006 congressional mandate that it prefund healthcare for its workers 75 years into the future. No other entity, public or private, has the burden of funding multiple generations of employees who have not yet even been born.

Iran Hell Bent On An Nuclear Bomb / Politics / Middle East

By: Andrew_McKillop

IN ISRAELI EYES
In Israeli eyes, Iran is ruled by a gang of religious fanatics whose nearly unique aim in life is to annihilate Israel. They are hell bent on producing The Bomb, which will enable them to do so. They are crazy fanatics so they don't care that Israel will make a second strike with its own nuclear weapons if it is A-bombed. Iran will be destroyed forever. So Iran must be prevented from having the bomb at all costs, certainly including world oil supplies being cut by 33% or more and the Strait of Hormuz closed, for a period that will depend on how quickly Iran can be bombed flat.

Just Say No to the Fed's Next Bernanke / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Don_Miller

So long Larry Summers! In this game of eeny meeny miny moe, it appears that Obama's index finger will ultimately land on Janet Yellen to replace Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve. Summers was Wall Street's choice, but he withdrew from consideration, citing potential obstacles in the Senate confirmation process. While I greeted that update favorably, Yellen isn't high on my list either.

Corporate Profits and Worker Unemployment / Politics / Unemployment

By: BATR

The informative business publication, Zero Hedge, featured the voice of common sense and economic insight, Rick Santelli.

"CNBC's Rick Santelli asks the (rhetorical) question that everyone should ask: "[What the Fed minutes said] is, listen, we have to wait for bigger confirmation that the economy is doing better; and for that, we're going to look at the employment side. [At the same time] we have the fewest people working that can work in 30 years, and all-time-record-high profits for corporations. Now, does that strategy sound rational to you?" It seems, now that Bernanke has seemingly promised that it will really never end, that Santelli's question will become increasingly critical in this country."

Following her triumphal re-election and the political horsetrading on forming a Grand Coalition with the SDP and the Greens, this reform will have to come.

From Greek Tragedy To Travesty: Troika Selling Off The Cradle Of Democracy / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Is it merely a coincidence that the troika rode its Trojan horse into Athens again on the very day Angela Merkel went awfully close to an absolute majority in German elections? I'm sure it is. But it's still very bad news for the Greeks, who now have their perhaps last chance to throw out the international financial system and decide their own fate, before most of their valuables have been sold off to foreign interests. Greece is where democracy started, and the way things are going, it may be where it will end as well.
