text The Abiding Economics of John Kenneth Galbraith - by Marc Lee and James Galbraith
From The Great Crash, we have of course the conviction that financial panics affect real activity. No one in the 19th century or with experience of agriculture ever seriously doubted that the economy runs on credit or that real activity depends on banks. Only in the higher reaches of academic life could such a thing be denied. The denial, nevertheless, took powerful hold.

There may be a "cure" for narcissism, though not with any pharma pills. The cure for narcissism may involve re-evaluation of our current cultural value systems. That's much harder than just...

text “Commercial Sex, the New ‘Terrorism’?” - Why You Need To Worry About H.R. 3530 - by Christina A. DiEdoardo, Esq
H.R. 3530 is the latest in a series of legislation which purportedly aims to “help” individuals classified as “victims of human trafficking” by expanding governmental powers of electronic surveillance, treating customers identically with principals and organizers and curtailing the due process rights of defendants. The federal government wants to attack “demand” on the assumption that if it does that, “supply” will dry up in response. The flaw in this analysis is that the bil...

text Murrieta protestors willfully ignorant of U.S. role in creating brutal governments - by Gil Villagran, MSW
Who are the people on Border Patrol buses at Murrieta, CA. and why are they invading our nation? The protestors seem oblivious to America’s origin by illegal immigrants to the so-called new world, later to Mexico (now called the Southwest). Patriots would do well to spend their 4th of July, researching our own history. An Internet search of “U.S. sponsored death squads” documents our sordid history of fomenting military takeovers of democratically elected governments in almost every n...
