Iraq and Oil Markets: a question of warring with countries or private industries.

Could the US reduce the risk to its economy from instability in the oil markets if it nationalized the oil industry and banned Wall St from trading or participating in any part of it?

Dave Brat's own "freakonomics' ... blame Hitler.

That's right, when all other explanations for what we perceive to be somebody else's misbehavior, pin the blame on good ol' reliable Hitler.

Possible Fund Raiser Idea


I was thinking of a way to raise funds for your fundraiser campaign going on now.

I am not a wealthy person, but, I am a programmer by day, and artist by night. I have never put my art up for sale, but, had an idea that maybe a 'silent auction' would be a cool way to raise money for free speech/your show. I was thinking that 90% of the price would go to the show and 10% to me (for supplies/etc.).

I place my art on my own site at:

No other Americans were present; Netanyahu was joined by Israel’s ambassador and national security advisor."

2. I need to have comprehensive liability insurance just like I would if I had a car.

The City 2

We will take as our point of departure a review in Jacobin magazine of a book titled "Bulletproof Neoliberalism" before reviewing some publications relevant to understanding the emerging political dynamic centered around the issues of "gentrification" and "urban renewal". Aside from the value Heideman's review in Jacobin of Mirowski's work might have for anyone contemplating acquiring a new read on the subject of neoliberalism, we are interested in the fact that this publication marks the point at which we acknowledge that neoliberalism is a philosophy which is here to stay.
