Obama and his top two advisors - Valerie Jarrett and Mrs. Obama - certainly don't have a solid grip on world affairs. Their expertise is social engineering.

They couldn't even clean up their own backyard when still in Chicago.

Israel Runs Up the Score

At this writing, one Israeli has been killed by Hamas fire; hundreds of Hamas rockets have either fallen harmlessly or been destroyed by Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile defense. The toll among Palestinians in Gaza is roughly 200 dead, and about 1,500 wounded. This then is not so much a war as a high-tech slaughter. Israel could kill Palestinians more rapidly of course, but seems to have judged it can go on at this pace, killing 15 to 20 a day, without provoking an international reaction. For some Israelis it is pure entertainment: yesterday The Independent reported that Israelis had set up couches and were serving popcorn to watch their air forces destruction of Gaza’s homes from the nearby hills.

....From what I can tell of the U.S. media, by breaking its ceasefire with Hamas in Gaza, Israel has turned the tide. CNN rushed Wolf Blitzer to Israel, where he dwelled on Israeli fears, discomforts and inconveniences caused by Hamas rocket fire. Think tank guests from pro-Israel organizations were duly interviewed, invariably repeating the point that America would never put up with rockets being fired at it from Mexico. This is of course true. But it is equally true no Americans would put up with living under the conditions that Israel has subjected the Palestinians to, in Gaza and the West Bank. Generally the higher up one was in the American media, the more pro-Israel was the coverage. Dianne Sawyer showed an image of a Palestinian house destroyed by Israeli bombs, and claimed they were Israeli victims of Hamas rockets. She later acknowledged the error.

But in some instances, major news organizations did have people reporting from Gaza, who would occasionally remind listeners that the Gazans didn’t have Iron Dome or warning sirens: they were essentially at the mercy of Israeli’s high-tech, American-provided, air force.

The American political class is so corrupted and indebted to pro-Israel money that it is impossible for the United States to play any kind of effective mediating role. That’s true for Republicans and Democrats alike. The congresswoman who represents the American teen who was beaten to pulp by the Israeli police refused to even release a statement about it—that’s the kind of obedience “pro-Israel” money can buy on Capitol Hill.

But Europe is quiet too. One of the more interesting comments about the slaughter came from Judy Dempsey, who edits and writes for the Carnegie Europe think tank blog.“European Leaders, Go to Gaza” she urged, professing shock at the European silence. She urged European leaders to organize massive medical assistance to Gaza. Even Netanyahu would think twice about assaulting a European hospital ship. I know, the World Cup has been going on, and many other things. But there’s something about the bombardment of a captive population that turns the stomach. And of course it has long-term strategic implications. Nearly half of Gaza’s 1.8 million population are minors, people who will grow up into some sort of adulthood. Israel will only be able to kill a tiny fragment of them. What will become of them as they grow up, how will they perceive the world, what choices will they make? The poet’s words come to mind:

I and the public know
What all schoolchildren learn,
Those to whom evil is done
Do evil in return.

FairTax - Income Taxes vs. Sales Taxes
The FairTax Proposal

Americans For Fair Taxation
National Sales Tax
Tax time is never a pleasant experience for any American. Collectively millions and millions of hours are spent on filling out forms and trying to decipher arcane instructions and regulations. By filling out these forms we become painfully aware of how much money we put into federal coffers each year. This heightened awareness causes a flood of proposals on how to improve the way governments collect funds. A group known as Americans for Fair Taxation proposes replacing income taxes with a national sales tax. Representative John Linder of Georgia has even sponsored a bill known as the the Fair Tax Act of 2003.. A fellow guide, Robert Longley, has written an interesting summary of the FairTax proposal
The idea to replace the income tax with a sales tax is not a new one. Federal sales taxes are widely used in other countries around the world, and given the low tax burden compared to Canada and Europe it is at least plausible that the federal government could obtain enough revenue from a sales tax in order to completely replace federal income taxes. The FairTax movement has come up with a scheme where income, estate, and payroll taxes could all be replaced with a 23 percent national sales tax. It is not hard to see the appeal of such a system. Since all taxes would be collected by businesses, there would be no need for private citizens to fill out tax forms. We could abolish the IRS! Most states already collect sales taxes, so a federal sales tax could be collected by the states, thus reducing administrative costs. There are a lot of apparent benefits to such a change.

Wages:
Apple
'Now for Apple. Like Walmart and McDonald's, the company pays extraordinarily low wages to its store workers, an average of about $12 per hour, or $24,000 per year for a full-time employee. In-store salespeople make up about half of the total workforce.'

Wal-Mart
'...The company claims its average full-time wage is $12.78 per hour. That's just under $26,000 per year.'
