So 60 minutes is running a story tonight where they label Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma the Godfather of the Tea Party. That's bad enough, but when they said that he had the nickname "Dr. No", that was the end of it. How about interviewing someone who pissed off his own party on a daily basis? How about the real Dr. No? I am sure you can watch this on their website when it comes up
He has proven that he is among the people who wish to be president at any cost.
"He showed sympathy for Israel's much-maligned settlement movement and questioned the desire among Palestinians for peace."
What an absurd thing to say. There is a lovely video posted here this morning, "The Quiet Revolution" which points out the truth: At our core, most of us want the same thing and peace is very near the top of our lists. To pretend Palestinians do not want peace is to deny their basic humanity. To pretend Israel is not an aggressor is to ignore the boundaries defined in the original treaty that created Israel.
Russia's NOT Selling Gold Adds 600,000 Ounces of Gold to its Reserves in November
There was plenty of speculation that Russia would begin selling its gold to protect the rouble. It hasn't happened and Russian President Putin this week said the Central Bank should not sell reserve assets to protect the rouble.
Indeed, Russia added another 600,000 ounces of gold to its reserves in November.
We've all seen a stone thrown into the water create ripples across the entire pond. And the ripples keep on going across the entire universe.
That is what that whole Beatles song was about, Across the Universe. Jai guru deva om (जय गुरुदेव ॐ), which roughly translates to: "Glory to the shining remover of darkness!"
Jai guru deva om. Be that stone. Go out and remove some darkness in the world. Don't wait for it to happen. Go out and do it, even if it is just for one person. Go make a positive ripple in this world.

Let's hope cooler heads will ultimately prevail and we unleash a trade tsunami that washes the Castros once and for all into the sea.
I grew up in a family that despised, not only communism, but collectivism, socialism and any “ism” that deprived the individual of his or her natural rights.

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

"Senator Marco Rubio believes the embargo against Cuba has been ineffective, yet he wants to continue perpetuating failed policies. After 50 years of conflict, why not try a new approach? The United States trades and engages with other communist nations, such as China and Vietnam. Why not Cuba? I am a proponent of peace through commerce, and I believe engaging Cuba can lead to positive change.
I can't with full conscience blame the police totally for all the incidents that have recently taken place. From the killing of twelve year old Tamir Rice in Ohio, to the actions taken against protesters during Occupy Wall Street, the police are not the only ones to blame. I would even go further and say the police have very little blame placed upon them. The politicians are the ones to blame for one hundred percent of the events that have taken place these last few years. Sure, the police have some responsibility in a moral aspect to respect their fellow man and women by refusing to comply with the orders demanded by politicians even if that sacrifices their jobs. We the people also are to blame for demanding government do something about everything and not demanding them to do nothing about something.
Politicians are elected to govern within the restrictions set by the federal and state constitutions. For the last few decades or more, politicians have violated that restriction for political gain. They want the people to see that they are doing something. When something horrible happens, the politicians are right there to promise new laws and restrictions and the people allow this to happen.
The issue today with all these incidence involving police is a direct consequence of years of laws that are nonsense. From the war on drugs to the attempted soda ban, these are "laws" that create conflict. The politicians write the "laws" and they send the police to do their dirty work. Naturally, the ones who are seen as aggressors will hold the blame such as the police are now, and the politicians who caused the aggression will use the situation to their advantage when the people cry for them to do something, which is also happening now.
What a twist that would be. Can't say as it'd surprise me but I would love to see all of our "goons" with egg on their collective faces...

"In short, what is happening now is that risk is coming out of hiding; the collateral chains are buckling; the financial time bombs are beginning to explode.
There is nothing especially new about this development—its the third occurrence this century. But there is possibly something different this time around the block.
This time the carnage could be much worse because the most recent tsunami of central bank credit was orders of magnitude larger and more virulent than during the run-up to the Lehman event or the dotcom implosion.
