At Obama's behest, Supremes rejects challenge to 'don't ask, don't tell'
06-08-2009  •  AP 
The Supreme Court agreed with the Obama administration [request] and refused to review Pentagon policy barring gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military.

The court said it will not hear an appeal from former Army Capt. James Pietrangelo II, who was dismissed under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Wall Street drops as McDonald's weighs
06-08-2009  •  Reuters 
Stocks fell on Monday after McDonald's Corp posted lighter-than-expected monthly sales and a report that Apple Inc would price new iPhones "aggressively," signaling that consumer spending may remain a concern.

With the market in the midst of a three-month rally, investors are looking for more proof of an improving economy in order to fuel a continued advance while also becoming wary of the ongoing rise in interest rates.

Federal Reserve's mortgage program destroying housing
06-08-2009  •  AP 

This and other big government spending programs are turning out to have the opposite effect. Rates for mortgages and U.S. Treasury debt are now marching higher as nervous bond investors fret about a resurgence of inflation.

That's the Catch-22 threatening to make an awful housing market potentially worse and keep the economy stuck in a funk. Kick-starting the economy requires higher spending, but rising rates mean fewer Americans will be able to refinance their home loans. And some potential buyers will be shut out of the market by higher monthly payments they won't be able to afford.

Gender test spurs abortion fears
06-08-2009  •  www.nzherald.co.nz 

A new test to reveal the gender of a fetus in early pregnancy has sparked a row over whether it will lead to sex-selection abortions.

The American-designed IntelliGender test kit, which can be used from eight weeks after conception, went on sale in Australia last month. Its Australian distributor hopes to launch it in New Zealand within a fortnight.

David Portnoy, managing director of Melbourne-based Early Image, said yesterday that he was negotiating with health products companies Douglas Pharmaceuticals and API to supply the kits to New Zealand pharmacies.

He expected they would sell for about $125.

California contemplates ultimate reform - NO WELFARE
06-08-2009 

Could California become the first state in the nation to do away with welfare?

That doomsday scenario is on the table as lawmakers wrestle with a staggering $24.3 billion budget deficit.

County welfare directors are "in shock" at the very idea of getting rid of CalWORKs, which has been widely viewed as one of the most successful social programs in the state's history, said Bruce Wagstaff, director of the Department of Human Assistance in Sacramento.

"It's difficult to come up with the right adjective to react to this," Wagstaff said. "It would be devastating to the people we serve."

H.D. Palmer, a spokesman for the state Department of Finance, said California is in an unprecedented fiscal situation that has made all programs, from education to human services, vulnerable to deep and painful reductions.

Obama's Outreach to Muslims: Empty Rhetoric, Same Old Policies
Stephen Lendman
  

As well as anyone, Edward Said understood the West's long-standing antipathy to Islam - reflected in Samuel Huntington's "The Clash of Civilizations" article in the summer 1993 issue of Foreign Affairs and later a 1996 book.

He wrote that future conflicts won't be "primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural....the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future" - demagogically suggesting a benevolent, superior West confronting a belligerent, hostile, inferior Muslim world. In other words, good v. evil.

Dead Cat Bounce
06-07-2009  •  arclein 
What makes me most nervous is that the general behavior of the markets are eerily similar to the 29’ crash and the same time functions are in place. It is only nine months since the actual break took place. In roughly the same time period, in 1930, the markets recovered somewhat and trade also. It really was a dead cat bounce that merely punctuated the ongoing economic decline that rolled on for a full two more years until late in 1932.  Read Full Story
