A Capital Idea Part 56: The Economic Balance of Nature
I have made the argument previously in this series that the economy should be treated like an ecology. If so, what is the balance of economical nature? What does economical diversity look like, and how does it benefit us?
The Republicans Are At It Again!
This time with a vengeance to take NPR & PBS forever FROM OUR LIVES.
During the afternoon of the day Mubarak stepped down, I was driving to an appointment and listening to NPR, an interview of a supposed expert on Egypt. Just that morning, I had watched Al Jazeera English and Democracy Now!’s coverage of the celebrations in Tahrir Square and the various interviews they had on the same subject, where I learned from Lisa Hajjar, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, on Democracy Now!, that Omar Suleiman was/is “...the CIA’s Man in Cairo and Egypt’s
This is the moment for Sen. Ron Paul to give us another Armstrong Investigation of 1905, though this time around, to irrefutably prove the insurance giants actually are the Federal Reserve and FDIC, having rigged for themselves the ultimate device in unregulated banking. Because, Mr. Paul, I can show in simple numbers plain as day, how Frank H.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker says the Wisconsin National Guard is prepared to respond if there is any unrest among state employees in the wake of his announcement that he wants to take away nearly all collective bargaining rights.

Two Mediterranean Fruit Flies have been positively identified in Bunny's neighborhood. Whether they are forming ranks with the Men-of-War along the coast has not been discussed. This insect is a pest of nearly 250 fruit and nut species, a cause for alarm in the state agencies in charge of pests dangerous to agriculture.
Walker cuts school budget in poverty stricken Beloit Wisconsin by $4 million dollars and Janesville, WI by an estimated $6 million while local Conservative Billionaire looks on. Both Beloit and Janesville are in Paul Ryan’s Congressional District. Ryan heads the House Budget Committee.
I’m old enough to remember the days prior to Personal Computers, Cable TV, the Internet and cell phones. Few of us would want to turn the technology clock back to those days. New technology is wonderful and does many great things, but as a society we are inept at managing it.
You commented on Friday about 4 20-year cycles that have repeated themselves throughout the past 200 years or so. Can you please give me the name of the web site you associated with this comment, and the book you mentioned. It sounded like you said "The 4th Attorney". (I'm driving on an interstate when I listen, and can't write any of it down.) Thanks.
This is cartoon where fictional characters talk about the tea party and the American Political-Economy.
I heard today that when Senator Kyle retires after 3 terms as US Senator he will be receiving a monthly, lifetime "pension" from US of at least $ 60,00.00 per year, meanwhile the republicant's & many other fiscal conservative types are on the march to kill, or at least radically cut pensions for state, government & other workers around the country. So, I pass on this proposal which I received by e-mail that begins to address this pension "crisis" in our country.
Had "W" addressed that body (Chamber of Commerce, 2011), he might have resurrected his infamous declaration:
"This is an impressive crowd — the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elites; I call you my base".
To say that Obama was a bit more amenable would be quite the understatement.
