Democrats Drop Key Part of Bill to Assist Unions
07-16-2009  •  NY Times 
A half-dozen senators friendly to labor have decided to drop a central provision of a bill that would have made it easier to organize workers.  Currently, employers can insist on a secret-ballot election, a higher hurdle for unions.   Read Full Story

Judge: Airlines can't question FBI in 9/11 suits
7/16/2009  •  by Harry R. Weber - Associated Press 
A federal judge ruled airlines and other companies in the industry that are being sued by families of terrorism victims can't question FBI agents about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The defendants wanted to depose the agents and sought access to other evidence related to the investigation of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in order to show at trial that the government's failure to catch the terrorists and prevent the attacks mitigates and excuses any alleged fault on the aviation companies' part. The government objected.  Read Full Story

7/16/09  •  Zombie Time 
Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens. The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both? These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology --.....  Read Full Story

Two Giants Emerge From Wall Street Ruins
07-16-2009  •  NY Times 
“One theme here is that Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan really have emerged as the winners, as the last of the survivors,” said Robert Reich.  Both banks now stand astride post-bailout Wall Street, having benefited from billions of dollars in taxpayer support and cheap government financing to climb over banks that continue to struggle. They are capitalizing on the turmoil in financial markets and their rivals’ weakness to pull in billions in trading profits.   Read Full Story

House Healthcare Bill Bombshell: "individual private medical insurance illegal."
7/16/09  •  Freedom Works 
After reading just 16 pages of the healthcare bill unveiled by House Democrats this week, the Investor’s Business Daily found …a provision making individual private medical insurance illegal. Skeptical that that could not possibly be truth, they …sought help from the House Ways and Means Committee. And, unfortunately, It turns out we were right: The provision would indeed outlaw individual private coverage. The relevant language, which you can find your self on page 16 here, in a section talking about “grandfathering” current private insurance, says.....  Read Full Story

But now Hollywood is coming to the rescue. [oh do I know the comments]

It's Good For Your Health?
7/16/09  •  LibertyCast Network 
As Americans die in the streets, our heroic Congress has decided to bring together a massive Health Care bill to stop any further carnage. They are so proficient in fact, they are likely to pass the first draft of the bill without reading the entire thing, as its length pushes one thousand pages, and its language is well lets say “cryptic”; Which again is understandable, considering the citizens are probably listening. Luckily our fearless leader has spearheaded the effort, performing a side show out of an ABC circus tent(Any similarities to real events are strictly coincidental). Congress has balls. They are rinsing and repeating a technique they used late last year to pass the big “Tarp” bill and now, likely will do the same for the health care legislation. And as we saw with the “bail out” no matter how much of an outcry from the constituents, the “representatives” will likely “forget” to check their voice mail.  Read Full Story

Minimum Wage, Maximum Stupidity
07-16-2009  •  Peter Schiff 
In a free market, demand is always a function of price: the higher the price, the lower the demand. What may surprise most politicians is that these rules apply equally to both prices and wages. When employers evaluate their labor and capital needs, cost is a primary factor. When the cost of hiring low-skilled workers moves higher, jobs are lost. Despite this, minimum wage hikes, like the one set to take effect later this month, are always seen as an act of governmental benevolence. Nothing could be further from the truth.

When confronted with a clogged drain, most of us will call several plumbers and hire the one who quotes us the lowest price. If all the quotes are too high, most of us will grab some Drano and a wrench, and have at it. Labor markets work the same way. Before bringing on another worker, an employer must be convinced that the added productivity will exceed the added cost (this includes not just wages, but all payroll taxes and other benefits.)

We live in interesting times. But we're not necessaily cursed.  Longtime readers know my standard response to questions about the severity of the Greater Depression: it’s going to be worse than even I think it’s going to be. “Coming Collapse” books will undoubtedly accumulate into an entire genre in the next few years, as they did a generation ago. This time it’s not just fearmongering, although things won’t get as bad as in James Kunstler’s book “The Long Emergency” and certainly not as rough as in the movies “Road Warrior” or “I Am Legend.” But it’s a good bet that a lot more is going to change than just some features of the financial system. Let’s engage in a little speculation as to the shape of things to come.

I’ve long believed that this depression would not only be much different but much worse than the unpleasantness of the ’30s an
