Are We Lemmings Heading Toward a Cliff?

Are We Lemmings Heading Toward a Cliff?

When I was a kid, I remember seeing a disturbing film about Lemmings in the Arctic. The film showed how these little rodents bred as though there were no tomorrow when food was abundant, quickly became overpopulated, and apparently due to a herding instinct combined with a drive to find new feeding grounds, before long were following each other in massive numbers to a cliff over the ocean, plunging over the edge and dying down below. I was astonished at this sad spectacle.

Govt. default & Social Security: A Republican strategy?

I haven't heard anybody discussing this directly: The Republicans have always claimed that the Treasury bonds guaranteeing Social Security are only paper, so the benefits are not really guaranteed. Is one of their purposes in forcing a default to convince people that the bonds really are only paper and therefore not a guarantee? I bet they start talking about this in the future as an excuse for why we need to reduce SS benefits now.

What this form of Capitalism is

Thom you know Greg Palast has the name of "Vulture Capitalism." This is the best term !
