Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Call me naive, but I don't understand how the entire civilized world is unable to collectively stop the atrocities in Syria.

And why they were unable to do the same in Rwanda and Darfur.

Isn't there enough military power collectively to put a quick and swift end to this kind of suffering?

What exactly is the purpose of the UN besides wringing their hands?
Yeah

Everyone is just crossing their fingers. That's all they can do.
Guess it's better to remain optimistic.
Whether it turns out to be a good thing in the long run or the Feds just delayed the inevitable has yet to be seen.
It appears Bernanke is going to be fired-I see January as I stated at the end of last year. I see economists saying it is a global blood bath. They are shocked that this is happening now. All markers were in place into 2015. It is not wise that this is happening now with China slowing down the entire globe is watching and selling. Blood bath brought to us by the O'bama administration. Generally speaking, you don’t see Fed policy shift this quickly. Usually, policy changes happen slowly -- hinted about at first, then executed in small steps. Bernanke started hinting last month that he might start tapering. Then yesterday, he said it could very well be over by mid-2014! That’s not a taper, that’s a sudden STOP!Usually, policy changes happen slowly -- hinted about at first, then executed in small steps. Bernanke’s comments came out of left field. I saw this coming over a month ago. We then got out of the gold business. Wheew close one.

I find it interesting that both the prosecution and the defense in the Martin/Zimmerman trial opted for an all female jury. Guess both sides decided they needed jurors who might be swayed by emotion.
I don't ever recall one in modern times.

Then again, I don't ever recall a jury as small as theirs.

Racism seems everywhere including the resignation of GOP type today,
-
An Illinois Republican official resigned Thursday, after writing a vicious attack on a biracial, female congressional candidate–calling her the “love child” of the Democratic National Committee, destined to work for “some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.”
The target was Erika Harold, a former Miss America and Harvard Law graduate who is seeking the Republican nomination for the 13th congressional district in central Illinois.
Montgomery County GOP Chairman Jim Allen referred to Harold as “miss queen,” and said that she was “being used like a street walker,” whose “pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS.” Allen sent the email to the conservative website Republican News Watch, which posted the text in full and called it a “racist rant.”
Republicans have problems with racism
Just pointing out the hypocrisy which you keep proving.

All the Dems did was make the banks stop redlining. It was Georgie boy who, in an attempt to boost minority homeownership, asked Congress for authority to eliminate the down-payment requirement for Federal Housing Administration loans.
"Nothing-down options were available on the private mortgage market, but, in general, they required the borrower to have pristine credit. Bush's proposed change extended the nothing-down option to borrowers with blemished credit."
"In the proposal....Bush allowed the FHA to guarantee loans for the full purchase price of the home, plus down-payment costs. As a practical matter, the FHA would guarantee mortgages as high as 103% of the value of the underlying property."
Bush did it!!! Own up to it.

Redlining excluded high-risk neighborhoods, a good thing.

<quoted text> Why can't Republicans learn from their mistakes? "It’s as if they didn’t learn a thing from the 2012 elections. Republicans are on the same suicide mission as before -- trying to block immigration reform (if they can’t scuttle it in the Senate, they’re ready to in the House), roll back the clock on abortion rights (they’re pushing federal and state legislation to ban abortions in the first 22 weeks), and stop gay marriage wherever possible.
As almost everyone knows by now, this puts them the wrong side of history. America is becoming more ethnically diverse, women are gaining economic and political power, and young people are more socially libertarian than ever before.
Why can’t Republicans learn?
It’s no answer to say their “base”— ever older, whiter, more rural and male — won’t budge. The Democratic Party of the 1990s simply ignored its old base and became New Democrats, spearheading a North American Free Trade Act (to the chagrin of organized labor), performance standards in classrooms (resisted by teachers’ unions) and welfare reform and crime control (upsetting traditional liberals).
The real answer is the Republican base is far more entrenched, institutionally, than was the old Democratic base. And its power is concentrated in certain states — most of the old Confederacy plus Arizona, Alaska, Indiana, and Wisconsin — which together exert more of a choke-hold on the Republican national party machinery than the old Democrats, spread widely but thinly over many states, exerted on the Democratic Party."

<quoted text> Not at all. Obama's prescription for eliminating unemployment and child poverty is close to Yon Kim's view at the World Bank. "STOCKHOLM (AP)- The World Bank says it will increasingly view its efforts to help developing countries fight poverty through a "climate lens."
In a report released Wednesday, the international lending institution warned that heat waves, rising seas, more severe storms and other impacts of climate change will trap millions of people in poverty.
As a result, the Washington-based bank said it is stepping up support for efforts to curb climate change and to help the world adapt to it.
"Urgent action is needed to not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also to help countries prepare for a world of dramatic climate change and weather extremes," World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said in a statement.
Already by the 2030s, 40% of the land used to grow maize in sub-Saharan Africa will be unable to sustain that crop because of droughts and heat, the report said. Also by that time, sea level rise coupled with more intense cyclones could inundate much of Thailand's capital, Bangkok, it said.
"At the World Bank Group, we are concerned that unless the world takes bold action now, a disastrously warming planet threatens to put prosperity out of reach of millions and roll back decades of development," Kim said. "In response we are stepping up our mitigation, adaptation, and disaster risk management work, and will increasingly look at all our business through a 'climate lens.'"

Nobody elected Kim to anything and his opinions have no bearing on the US.

You are not an economist so I don't expect you to understand much about outside market support from the Fed. When interest rates are no longer kept artificially low through government intervention, the markets will have a tough time. The transition from a fake to a real market will be a rough one. Speculators may do well but they will probably be Magic Negro Inside Traders. The IRS folks will keep the Magic Negro's friends advised.
Galt is anxiously awaiting the prospect of higher interest rates.

The Fed can't keep rates down in the face of inflation.
