Why would the world continue to do business with US companies knowing ALL their trade secrets, financial/personal info, etc is being intercepted, recorded and scrutinized?

According to a member of Michael Hastings’s family, a widely circulated story that the investigative journalist’s body was cremated by authorities without the family’s permission is flat-out untrue...
...a family member told WhoWhatWhy, “It was our wish to have Michael’s remains cremated.” In fact, this family member said the cremation came about at the family’s specific request—and only after an autopsy and toxicology tests, whose results are pending...
“I’m eager to get started” said Bright. “This is the first step towards bringing this nation back to its founding principles.”
“Senator Graham has shown himself to be part of the ruling elite who is more concerned with pleasing the Washington ‘in-crowd’ than representing the good people of South Carolina,” says Goose Creek Tea Party activist Joan Peters. “After the heartbreak of losing Senator DeMint, sending Lee Bright to Washington to work alongside Tim Scott is something we must do.”
This gift, courtesy of the Obama Administration, is free to the [Lewiston Maine Police Dept] as a reallocation of military surplus. Of course we all know nothing is free in this country. And why does a town like Lewiston need an armored tank? It can’t be the crime, because in 2011 they recorded 3 murders and in 2009 they recorded zero murders.

Have you ever seen the movie Idiocracy? It is a movie about an “average American” that wakes up 500 years in the future only to discover that he is the most intelligent person by far in the “dumbed down” society that is surrounding him.
Unfortunately, that film is a very accurate metaphor for what has happened to American society today. We have become so “dumbed down” that we don’t even realize what has happened to us. But once in a while something comes along that reminds us of how far we have fallen.
In Kentucky, an eighth grade exam from 1912 was recently donated to the Bullitt County History Museum. When I read this exam over, I was shocked at how difficult it was. Could most eighth grade students pass such an exam today? Of course not. In fact, I don’t even think that I could pass it. Sadly, this is even more evidence of “the deliberate dumbing down of America” that former Department of Education official Charlotte Iserbyt is constantly warning us about.
Living in South Texas this idea would be great for an off the grid adobe home.
In the last two years his innovation has spread throughout the world. It is expected to be in one million homes by early next year.
So how does it work? Simple refraction of sunlight, explains Moser, as he fills an empty two-litre plastic bottle
"An engineer came and measured the light," he says. "It depends on how strong the sun is but it's more or less 40 to 60 watts," he says.
Here is an awesome behind the scenes view of how great investigative reporting gets done. It's like reading good fiction and yet it is real life. A must read by liberty and freedom lovers everywhere.
JERUSALEM—As part of their continuing efforts to bring peace to the conflict-stricken region, Israeli government officials announced today the construction of a new settlement on Palestinian lands where future peace talks can be held.

Your future bosses won't wade through 10,000 resumés themselves. They'll create a job description and hire a recruiter to find a match instead.
Many recruiters will just search for that description on Careerbuilder.com and see who falls out, so unless you have a personal connection with a recruiter, showing up in these search results is how you will get found.
So how do you make that happen?
Jennifer Rubin, a conservative blogger for the Washington Post, is optimistic that a Wisconsinite could be at the top of the Republican presidential ticket in 2016. The pundit, who spent much of the last election cycle helping readers understand the inevitability of President Mitt Romney, has compiled lists of advice for both Paul Ryan and Scott Walker.
Let’s start with Walker. Here’s her first piece of advice:
"According to analysis by Cliff Kule, the Federal Reserve has spent enough on mortgage-backed securities since September of 2012 to have purchased 1.43 million homes outright, considering the current average price of a home in the US. Its relentless bond buying program has artificially inflated the demand for otherwise valueless mortgages by 130,000 homes per month. Let’s discuss this looming disaster that hangs over the US housing market."
New York City and Gestapo Mayor Bloomberg’s unbelievable “Stop and Frisk” policy (wherein citizens are stopped and patted down, without reason and completely in violation of the 4th amendment), received what some are calling a scathing rebuke today. A federal judge has come out against the procedure, however not as far as I would like, and in a very puzzling and schizophrenic fashion.
A news item broke today on a topic that has long been angst-stirring for me, and likely for anyone who keeps the cause of liberty close to their heart. The War on Drugs. This of course ties into some of Ron Paul's epic "32 Questions," which he asked during his final speech to Congress. Namely: "Why Should There By Mandatory Sentences For Crimes Without Victims, As Our Drug Laws Require?" and also: "Why Haven’t We Given Up On The Drug War?"

There has been a lot of debate/chatter about Milton Friedman’s monetary views lately.
Krugman has been putting in his inflated 2 cents in.
You see it’s ok for “respectable opinion” to talk about Friedman’s monetary views until the cows come home. No harm can come of it.
Today, Krugman today quotes Friedman from 1998:
Last week, August 6, marked the 68th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb ever deployed on man, as the Enola Gay dropped “Little Boy” onto the city of Hiroshima, taking the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Three days later, the second bomb “Fat Boy” was dropped on Nagasaki, resulting in similar destruction. Some were lucky enough to die instantly, while many more suffered slower deaths via radiation poisoning and horrific burns disfiguring their bodies.
