"Compared with other American universities of its size, Kent State had enjoyed relative tranquility prior to May 1970, and its student population had generally been conservative or apolitical. … They are predominantly the children of middle class families, both white collar and blue collar, and in the main go on to careers as teachers and as middle-level management in industry." via www.kentstate1970.org 2011...We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. FDR.......pretty spooking stuff, eh? Continue »

#Understanding the Lesser Depression# **J. Bradford DeLong, U.C. Berkeley, September 2011* ##(2) The Great Moderation## ###2.3 The Global Savings Glut and the Housing Boom### **The Housing Boom** But the collapse of the Great Moderation was still in the future as the U.S. and the world economy recovered from the relatively small recession and downturn in the early 2000s that had followed the collapse of the late-1990s dot-com boom. The recovery of the 2000s did have a somewhat odd shape that puzzled and worried many economists, who wrote papers about and tried to puzzle out the logic of two phenomena, the... Continue »

And here is Keynes: >General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money: If the Treasury were to fill old bottles with banknotes, bury them at suitable depths in disused coalmines which are then filled up to the surface with town rubbish, and leave it to private enterprise on well-tried principles of laissez-faire to dig the notes up again… the note-bearing territory), there need be no more unemployment and, with the help of the repercussions, the real income of the community, and its capital wealth also, would probably become a good deal greater than it actually is. It would, indeed, be more sensible to build houses and the like; but if there are political and practical difficulties in the way of this, the above would be better than nothing. >The analogy between this expedient and the goldmines of the real world is complete. At periods when gold is available at suitable depths experience shows that the real wealth of the world increases rapidly; and when but little of it is so available our wealth suffers stagnation or decline. Thus gold-mines are of the greatest value and importance to civilisation. Just as wars have been the only form of large-scale loan expenditure which... Continue »

Jonathan Turley, the author of one of my favorite blogs and a professor at George Washington University, announced today that he is traveling to Utah to file a lawsuit challenging a state statute criminalizing bigamy and cohabitation. Turley is representing the Brown family, which is presently attracting a good bit of attention as the focal point of a television show about a polygamous family called Sister Wives. In a statement about the imminent filing (Turley plans to file the complaint on Wednesday), Turley said that the case is about protecting citizens' "right to be left alone" and to live according to their own values. He said he views the case as: the strongest factual and legal basis for a challenge to the criminalization of polygamy ever filed in the federal courts. We are not demanding the recognition of polygamous marriage. We are only challenging the right of the state to prosecute people for their private relations and demanding equal treatment with other citizens in living their lives according to their own beliefs. Like many of you, Kody Brown has a civil marriage with one wife. Perhaps unlike many of you, however, Brown also has three “sister wives” with whom he... Continue »

Deepak Gupta has just posted about an excellent decision firmly rejecting both Koch Industries’ trademark and other claims over a satirical press release making fun of the Koch brothers’ funding of climate change denial, as well as Koch’s effort to obtain information identifying the critics. But there is an important consumer issue in the case that has received much less attention than it should — the disgraceful reaction on the part of Bluehost, the company whose services were used to obtain the domain name and host the satirical web site. via pubcit.typepad.com Continue »

Jesus wanted us to Care for Each Other, if you have 2 coats then give one to the man who has none (re-distribution) of wealth remember! Jesus would have compassion on the poor, widowed and orphans He gave that job to the Church. So why if People are the Church would you be relieved of your responsibilities? Only a man stuck in Pride and perversion would teach such Tingling half truths. You have no intention of making away out of no-way what you and your party have is no plan for the Poor- let them eat cake. You have no... Continue »
