I attended this lecture this week, October 23, at the AIM. The five lady speakers all have good if not outstanding academic credentials. When I received the email invite from the organizers two weeks before the event, I asked them if they also have a forum that will debate, not sing alleluiah, over this anthropogenic (or "man-caused" or "man-made") global warming (AGW) and climate change (CC). I added that it is a huge scam, a scheme towards global ecological central planning.

Fall 1941: Pearl Harbor and The Wars of Corporate America

Intercept at The Intercept - 1 hour ago
Global Research Dr. Jacques R. Pauwels Myth: The US was forced to declare war on Japan after a totally unexpected Japanese attack on the American naval base in Hawaii on December 7, 1941. On account of Japan’s alliance with Nazi Germany, this aggression automatically brought the US into the war against Germany. Reality: The Roosevelt administration had been eager for some time to wage war against Japan and sought to unleash such a war by means of the institution of an oil embargo and other provocations. Having deciphered Japanese codes, Washington knew a Japanese fleet was on its ... more »

Latter Day Robber Baron Mitt Romney Is Still Grubbing Money By Shipping American Jobs To China

I think the outrage of the Senasta factory shut down in Illinois-- where Jesse Jackson was arrested yesterday-- isn't having any impact in most of the country.

Tax Expenditure Fact of the Day

Greg Mankiw at Greg Mankiw's Blog - 4 hours ago

For those households, by the center’s calculations, the tax benefit of the deduction amounts to about 1.5 percent of after-tax income. By way of comparison, the value to households earning $40,000 to $50,000 is closer to 0.3 percent of after-tax income; for households earning $50,000 an... more »
