NJ Gov. Christie Claims Cannabis Legalization is "Blood Money" - by Clown Award Goes to Christie!

This comedian who plans to run for Pres. in 2016 believes then that there is no blood money made in the illegal status of drugs that spurn the cartels and resulting violence of gang warfare?

Hypocritical and Hippocratic Economic Policy in Europe - by Andreas Botsch
The crisis is multilayered-a bank crisis, a crisis of wealth distribution and a misallocation of capital between long-term real investments and virtual financial investments, the latter without discernible social benefits...The frugal Schwabian housewife is not a suitable model for fiscal policy.
