  Excuse Me For Living 
I srael has all the proof it needs that world opinion will never consider its right to exist important. The Obama White House, and a lot of the US News Media, portray the Hamas-Israel conflict as something like an amateur soccer match, with the uneven score (40-odd Israeli soldiers killed versus 1000-plus Palestinians, mostly civilians) showing that the contest is unfair, that Israel has “gone too far,” that they have entered the same moral zone as Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot, carrying out a “ge

  End Torture, Shut Down The CIA! 
Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, "we don't torture people"? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, "this government does not torture people"? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier. Still the US administration denied that torture was torture, preferring to call it "enhanc

  205,000 or 205 tonnes of gold, why commas matter 
Karen Hudes latest refers to "The UBS is holding 205,000 MT under the Global Debt Facility for the benefit of humankind" and she provides a link to a letter from UBS and associated gold certificates as proof of the figure. The letter says that "... volume of 205,000 Metric Tons issued last June 15, 1977 is unrestricted for collateral ..." Unfortunately, given that the letter and certificates are issued by UBS, a Swiss firm, and that Switzerland is one of the countries that uses commas as a dec

  U.S. Authoritites Starting to Worry about Deutsche Bank’s Mountain of Derivatives
We know, since last year, that Deutsche Bank has become the bank with the most exposure to derivatives in the world, slightly ahead of JP Morgan. The total amount of the German bank’s derivatives is astounding: 55 Trillion euros, a sum equal to 20 times Germany’s GDP, or five times the Euro zone’s GDP. Obviously, the bank could not face any hard depreciation of those products, since they represent 100 times its clients’ deposits, or 150 times its own funds... What’s new is that financial author

  Victorian Britain: 'Yoke Up the Children'
"Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir." "Are there no prisons?" "Plenty of prisons." "And the workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?" "Both very busy, sir." "Those who are badly off must go there." "Many can't go there; and many would rather die." "If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population." Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol Efficient markets,

  Ukrainians Ordered to War, Women Burn the Military Writs
The war in Ukraine is going so well that soldiers are unpaid and men are ordered to serve whether they want to or not. Hats off to a group of women who confront a Ukrainian soldier and burn military writs right in front of the soldier's face. Writ Burning Video Video link: Ukrainians Burn Writs Transcript Woman to Ukrainian soldier: Who are you? Soldier: I am the head of the local recruiting center.

  C. S. Lews On Kindness and Civility at the Table 
"We hear a great deal about the rudeness of the rising generation. I am an oldster myself and might be expected to take the oldsters' side, but in fact I have been far more impressed by the bad manners of parents to children than by those of children to parents. Who has not been the embarrassed guest at family meals where the father or mother treated their grown-up offspring with an incivility which, offered to any other young people, would simply have terminated the acquaintance?

  It's Deja Vu Disappointment All Over Again
Baseball great Yogi Berra had a saying "It's déjà vu all over again", and every year around this time, I am reminded of those words. As we have once again, happened upon that magical time of year I call, recovery summer déjà vu. It's the time of year when Wall Street and Washington apologists trot out their dog and pony narrative, in an attempt to spin the actual data, proving we have finally embarked on the summer that will launch sustainable economic growth. And this year is no exc

  There Will Be No Warning When the Next Crisis Hits 
Yesterday we wrote about the Cyprus bank “bail-in” noting that while ordinary citizens were screwed, connected insiders had ample time to get their money out of the banks before they were frozen. Today, we note the following: Russian oligarchs who are close to Vladimir Putin have a week to get their cash out of Britain before sanctions are imposed, it has emerged.

If I have learned anything in the past few years, it is that work and money and the markets are only things.   Important, but only as means to the ends, which are the real stores of value. And so I will enjoy the rest of the day, and the good news I have just received, and be back tomorrow.  And the markets will still be there, as I hope that you and I will also be. Things can be replaced.  People can't.  When the stars burn out, and the planets and all material wealth turns to dust, only the

  The American Religion of Violence 
Laurence Vance has coined the word “warvangelical” to describe so-called evangelical Christians who are obsessed with supporting all of the state’s wars and all of the death, destruction, and mayhem that they entail.  They ignore the ancient just war tradition of St. Thomas Aquinas, among others, and simply support all war and all military aggression – as long as the U.S. government is the aggressor. These are the people who booed at Ron Paul when he reminded them at one of their conventions tha

  Who's Winning the War in Ukraine? Answer May Shock You!
Here's the question, not of the day, but of the month: Who's Winning the War in Ukraine? That may sound like a simple question, but it isn't. That question leads to a second question "In whose eyes?" It also depends on the definition of "war". And it also depends on the definition of "win". And finally it depends on which media source you believe. Military Aspect From a military aspect, I have seen reports from both sides. The Western media portrays Ukraine on the march with the rebels surr
