Apparently if you show up in Judge Spinners courtroom, spewing a load of crap, unprepared, misrepresenting the truth like you think the judge was born yesterday, things will go badly for you.   [more]

Water Woes.

November 24, 2009 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: KO , SBMRY.PK.DL

Agriculture is the largest consumer of water in almost every country. In many countries around the world, farmers are facing difficult times because of water shortages. In some cases the problem is discovered when one private interest sucks the water out from under a landowner in order to ship it elswhere. Pickens is doing it in Texas, Nestle in Maine, and Coca Cola in India. Syngenta does it by shipping produce, SABMiller by shipping beer.  [more]

Celebrating Tax Cuts

November 15, 2009 – Comments (0)

It is amazing what is floatiing around the internets. I find it very saddening to be reminded that I doubted the idea of the claim that tax cuts were supposed to pay Gov'ts bills but kept politely silent in the face of what seemed to me to be nonsense. I gain no solace in the excuse that I was spending 12 hour days fixing cars at the time and had passed on college. In this article no mention is made of the contribution from rolling over debt at lower and lower interest rates, even as that game was ending at 1% at the time of the writing and policys of actually giving tax money away was begun. The claim that Reagans tax cuts contributed to the growth of private industry outpacing the growth of Government is also fascinating in light of the recognition by both the left and the right that private industry holds sway over Government policy and Governments inability to do the jobs we have assigned it (SEC, EPA, FDA etc).  [more]
