The Next Phase of the Debt Crisis Is Here - By Peter Stansberry, The Daily Crux (15/9/10) PDF Print E-mail

"To disrupt our services because we can't make a bond payment would just be unconscionable. And as a leader I couldn't do it." So explained Linda Thompson, the mayor of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She was explaining the city's refusal to repay part ($3.29 million) of the $288 million it owes for an incinerator it bought. The total obligation for the incinerator comes to roughly $6,000 per citizen of the city. It is a debt that can't be repaid and should have never been lent.

Unless you happen to live in Harrisburg, you probably didn't see this item in your local paper. And you probably wonder why we'd lead with it in the Digest. After all, why should the impending bankruptcy of a small Pennsylvania city matter to you?

I gave President Barrack Obama six months to roll out his doomed Keynesian policies, twelve months to discover they were flawed and eighteen months to realize the solution to America's problems must lie within a different economic framework. I had hoped by the end of twenty-four months to see new policies closer to an Austrian economic philosophy emerge. I was wrong.

Even though the Wall Street Journal recently featured an article on the re-emergence of the Austrian School, it would appear this administration still doesn't get it and never will. Key defections by leading economic advisors, talk of the need for QE II and a Stimulus II, and a political collapse in public confidence suggests a growing awareness that Keynesian policies are not working. Obama's exciting rhetoric of Hope and Change has left the majority of recently-polled Americans disillusioned and disappointed. What I see the administration failing to grasp is twofold:

Tony Blair And The Great Islamic Threat - By Gwynne Dyer (14/9/10) PDF Print E-mail

People often wind up believing their own cover story. Former British prime minister Tony Blair, for example, is trapped forever in the rationalizations he used in 2003 to explain why he was going along with George Bush’s invasion of Iraq. He was at it again last week, telling the BBC that “radical Islam” is the greatest threat facing the world today.

The BBC journalist went to Ireland for the interview because Blair chose Dublin for the only live signing of his newly published autobiography: a personal appearance in Britain wouldn’t be safe. Even in Ireland, the protesters threw eggs and shoes at the man who was Bush’s faithful sidekick in the struggle to save western civilization from radical Islam.

If That 'Mosque' ISN'T Built, This Is No Longer America - By Michael Moore (13/9/10) PDF Print E-mail

[FF Editorial: This article should be read by every Malaysian and I hope that Malaysians dare think like Michael Moore. Malaysians never ceased propagating that we must be “sensitive” to this or that race or religion and that Malaysians should not “create offence” to such sensitivities. Here is an American who dares call for a mosque to be built on Ground Zero itself. How sensitive can this proposal be to those who have lost their loved ones on September 11? But Michael Moore has the faith that freedom to practice one’s religion as enshrined in the US Constitution (as well as in the Malaysian Constitution) is sacrosanct and will be protected by ordinary Americans. The US government has committed war crimes and continues to do so, but there are Americans who dare speak up. However, this is sorely missing in Malaysia where bigots and fanatics rule the day. In Malacca, there is a popular tourist spot where tourist guide and officials proudly exclaim that this reflects the true Malaysia – a Mosque, a Hindu Temple, A Buddhist Temple and a Taoist Temple are all located within walking distance of each other. When we have this all over Malaysia, that will be the day when we can truly say that we are one!]       

I am opposed to the building of the "mosque" two blocks from Ground Zero.

I want it built on Ground Zero.
