Plundering the Planet, The earth is not dying, it is being killed / Politics / Environmental Issues

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFelicity Arbuthnot writes: "The earth is not dying, it is being killed.  And those who are killing it have names and addresses." Utah Phillips.

Call me a cynic, but as soon as I hear of the latest "rogue state", declared by the US and endorsed, invariably, by UK and Israel -   a "rogue", always far away, invariably either poverty stricken, or embargoed - I reach for a 1993 "Encyclopaedia of  Word Geography", turn to the page on the latest declared "enemy", and look at the box which lists: "Major resources."

UK Government Scraps NHS GP and Hospital Waiting Time Targets / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe New UK ConDem government has scrapped Old Labours efforts to hold GP's and the NHS Hospitals to account by means of feeble waiting time targets such as of being able to see ones GP within 48 hours, or be assessed at your local hospital within 4 hours. I say feeble because GP's have long since developed tricks, simple mechanisms to avoid falling fowl of Labours targets such as not picking up the phone on patients calling to make appointments, or telling patients to come in on a later date to make an appointment.

Too Much Government in the Gulf, Preventing Clean Up / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Sadly, the disaster in the Gulf continues this week as BP's efforts at containment keep hitting snags and residents along the coast scramble to clean up and defend their shores and wildlife. Many have criticized the federal government in the past weeks for not doing enough. The reality is there is only so much government can do to help, yet a lot they can do to prolong the problem and misdirect the pain. For example, in the interest of "doing something" the administration has enacted a unilateral ban on offshore drilling. This is counterproductive. I am proud to cosponsor legislation to lift that ban. Why punish other oil companies and their hard-working employees who had nothing to do with this disaster, and who have better safety records?

Can We “Fix” The Oil And Financial Crisis Before Its Too Late? / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt seems clear that BP can’t seem to fix the catastrophic gusher the press calls a “leak,” and that President Obama can’t fix the economy because its problems are structural and won’t respond to soaring rhetoric emanating from his bully pulpit.

Meanwhile, most of the world’s people really don’t get the fix we are all in. I take that back; the million Americans who have just lost their benefits probably do.  The deficit hawks voted that down without doing anything about the growing deficit of jobs.

Message to Obama on the Gulf Coast Guard / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Palmer writes: Thank God the Governor of Louisiana refused to be intimidated by the Coast Guard.

Sixteen barges were stationary for 24 hours. Workers in hazmat suits and gas masks pumped the oil out of the Louisiana waters and into steel tanks. It was a homegrown idea that was working until the Coast Guard shut the operation down because they couldn’t confirm there were fire extinguishers and life vests on board.

Reasons Why American Workers Hate the State / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Petras writes: Why does the rightwing attack on “Big Government” increasingly resonate with working people?

Liberals claim wage and salaried workers are acting against their “self-interest”, citing government welfare programs like social security and unemployment payments. Progressives argue that workers hostile to the state are ‘racists”, “fundamentalists” and/or irrational, blinded by misplaced fears of threats to individual freedoms.

Washington Mafia's $20 Billion Shakedown of BP / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Davies writes: I was very disappointed to hear how the D.C. Mafia had subjected BP to what the possibly vertebrate Joe Barton (R-TX) called a "shakedown" for $20B to compensate those hurt by its oil spill, but had also made the company agree not to cap that sum (meaning the bill may be higher yet) and to let a government nominee administer the payments (meaning it is almost sure to be higher yet).

Hyperinflation or Deflation? "Deficit Terrorists" Strike in the UK, USA is Next / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, England’s new government said it would abandon the previous government’s  stimulus program and introduce the austerity measures required to pay down its estimated $1 trillion in debts.  That means cutting public spending, laying off workers, reducing consumption, and increasing unemployment and bankruptcies.  It also means shrinking the money supply, since virtually all “money” today originates as loans or debt.  Reducing the outstanding debt will reduce the amount of money available to pay workers and buy goods, precipitating depression and further economic pain.

EXTEND & PRETEND: A Matter of National Security / Politics / UK Economy

By: Gordon_T_Long

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is something seriously wrong in America. We all sense it, but few in the mainstream media are willing to touch it or can effectively articulate it within the public’s sound-bite oriented attention span.

It isn’t just about the remnants of the financial crisis; it isn’t the protracted jobs recession and slow recovery; it isn’t the trillions of dollars in deficit spending; it isn’t the degree of rampant financial malfeasants. It is something deeper which reaches into the soul of who we are as a people and society. It will soon be the central theme to your investment strategy and financial security.
