    While fiscal-houses-of-cards like Greece, Spain, and Portugal have frightened Euro-watchers in recent years with their shaky finances/debt, some observers even wonder-aloud whether relatively-wealthy France is next. But Italy is truly still the 'sick man of Europe' -already past the point of no return- and of course debt/socialism/big government is what's done it (same garbage 'progressives' have been ramming down our throats for 5+ years now): Italian national debt exceeds 130% of GDP (US currently = 62%, but some experts say this number is not truly representative of the dire situation we're already in) Italy's high tax rates and Kafka-esque bureaucracy have...

    Mobley, a doctor in Missouri, is convinced that Ebola will soon be infecting people all over the globe. “For months, doctors in my community — since we had a meeting six weeks ago — have been convinced that the United States will be importing clusters regularly. Right now, on the continent of West Africa, there are a million people in isolation, in quarantine, because of Ebola, and ten thousand passengers leave West Africa every single day. It’s just a matter of time before this disease is carried to every corner of the world.” He insists the CDC is underplaying the...

    Four billion years from now, the Milky Way galaxy as we know it will cease to exist. Our Milky Way is bound for a head-on collision with the similar-sized Andromeda galaxy, researchers announced today (May 31). Over time, the huge galactic smashup will create an entirely new hybrid galaxy, one likely bearing an elliptical shape rather than the Milky Way's trademark spiral-armed disk. "We do know of other galaxies in the local universe around us that are in the process of colliding and merging," Roeland van der Marel, of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, told reporters today.

    The Obama administration will not implement a controversial piece of the healthcare reform law, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Friday. Sebelius said the department will not continue trying to implement the CLASS program, which was intended to provide insurance for long-term care. Republicans charged that the program’s financial structure was unsustainable, and Sebelius conceded as much Friday. “We have not identified a way to make CLASS work at this time,” she wrote on the Huffington Post's website. Sebelius said HHS will “suspend” implementation of the program. The department recently reassigned the people it had placed in the...

(See video below) Importantly, this dour outlook as nothing to do with the company's operating businesses, which Whalen thinks are fine. In fact, says Whalen, there's no need for the bank to be restructuring them and firing thousands of employees (40,000 is the latest estimate) to improve its bottom line. The part of Bank of America that's not fine, in Whalen's view, is the ongoing liability from the mortgage underwriting that Bank of America's subsidiaries did during the housing bubble. The...

I won the bet but have not yet received my prize, a "crying towel" from "Heli-Ben". By any rational measure, and certainly by my definition, the US went into a period of deflation lasting at least a year. Deflation ended in March of...

In fact, the similarities are almost chilling. If you’re sailing on the high seas and a storm was imminent, more than likely you would head for the nearest port. Trying to ride out the storm would probably bring death and destruction, and anything would be better than that. However, if the port within reach was occupied by Johnny Depp and his collection...

    Caught in the sluggish recovery from the last recession, Social Security and Medicare face an increasingly dismal fiscal future, the federal government reported Friday in its annual review of the two mammoth entitlement programs. Medicare, which now provides health insurance to some 47 million elderly and disabled Americans, could begin running a deficit in 2024, five years earlier than projected last year. And Social Security, which last year began paying out more in benefits than it collected in taxes, now faces insolvency in 2036, compared to 2037 in last year’s projections. Over the years, the Social Security and Medicare trustees...

In addition, nine children in the area died of thyroid cancer that is thought to have been caused by radioactive contamination, but even among the nearby population, there was neither evidence of decreased fertility nor of congenital malformations that could be attributed to radiation exposure.

The website lists 48 programs that provide training for green jobs, offered through organizations such as community colleges, local workforce investment boards and private industries.

    Plunging Consumer Confidence and Treasury Yields, Economic Depression Is Here Economics / Great Depression II Jun 29, 2010 - 01:46 PM By: Mike Shedlock Is that a 3-handle I see on the long bond and a 2-handle of the 10-year treasury? Why yes it is. Treasury Yields - Weekly Close The week is not over yet but this looks rather ominous. Treasury yields are back where they were in April of 2009 at the start of the so-called "recovery". I am not quite sure why the 3-month treasury displays as a flatline at .5. The flatline is closer to 0....

    Nuke the BP oil spill drill hole, it will seal it just as the Russians have done at 9 other sites. Too much money and environmental damage is at stake and we can no longer allow PC & environazis to prevent the correct action from being considered and taken. Obama promised to use science in determination of policy, yet they have taken the nuclear option off the table.

    Israeli-Palestinian negotiations are doomed to hit a brick wall because no Palestinian leader will accept anything less than what Yasser Arafat rejected at Camp David 10 years ago, and no Jewish prime minister will offer anything more, Vice Premier and Regional Development Minister Silvan Shalom said Thursday in an interview with The Jerusalem Post. “No matter what we do, I do not see a Palestinian leader who is willing to accept what Arafat rejected, and I don’t see a Jewish prime minister who can give more than what [Ehud] Barak offered. Therefore, I see it as a dead end,” he...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth initially struck a conciliatory note after Rodney Glassman's entrance into the race this week, with both men welcoming the recent City Council member into the fray. But immediately, Hayworth scoffed at Democratic hopes that the general election will be a re-run of 1976, when a similarly young and unknown Democrat, Dennis DeConcini of Tucson, took the U.S. Senate seat after a brutal primary left the Republicans in puddles. "If you're looking for a historical analogy, I'd say it's closer to 1994," Hayworth said, harking back to the year Republicans swept control...
