    American Express said it plans to cut more than 4,000 jobs over the next year. A representative for the company told CNBC that it is planning to cut the jobs, but that this is only a gross figure, and that the firm will also continue to hire selectively in parts of the organization. Additionally, American Express reported quarterly earnings that slightly beat analysts' expectations on Wednesday, and CEO Ken Chenault said in a release that "tight controls on the cost side of the ledger" had benefited the company. The company posted fourth-quarter earnings per share of $1.39 per share, compared...

The Republican challenger to Blue Dog Democrat Rep.

Instead, the Tea Party Express endorsed Minnick, and left a lot of head-scratching behind in Idaho afterward:
  • Money woes could threaten high-speed rail's future

    CHICAGO (AP) - The $8 billion in stimulus cash awarded to 13 high-speed rail corridors across the country may seem like a windfall, but there's a catch. The money isn't enough to finish any of the major projects. State coffers are dry and federal spending is being cut back. So, it's unclear who will pay the rest of the multi-billion dollar bill.

Several people gathered at the Amtrak station held signs and even made negative comments while Sen. Dick Durbin was speaking. They questioned projections of economic growth from high-speed rail spending and the wisdom of spending so much money in the face of mounting state and federal budget deficits. “I’m really upset,” said Jeff Strange of Bloomington. While officials say the...

    Traveling Tea Party draws thousands September 8, 2009 BY CASEY CORA Billed as a protest against taxes and government spending, the national Tea Party's stop in New Lenox became a gathering of local conservatives and a call to action on national political issues. "As much as we say the system failed us, maybe we failed the system as well," said Joliet resident Tim Kraulidis, who helped organize Monday's event. "We can't complain ... that our legislators are doing things we don't want them to do and then we don't engage the system." About 6,000 people packed the hillside venue at...

    Throughout history governments have ignored the rights of citizens and instead have maximized their own power. Those in public office have used it for their own personal gain, or to take wealth from some and give to others in order to maintain their own power. It is a classic model that hasn’t changed much in thousands of years. The modern iteration of this is a leviathan federal government run by a political party based precisely on such principles. The bread and circuses of Roman times have merely been replaced with redistribution of wealth and a paternalistic state. The other major...

    As part of the newest cost-cutting plan, American Express also plans to scale back investment spending and make further cuts to operating costs, including professional services and travel. "While we have remained solidly profitable at a time when some parts of the card industry were incurring substantial losses, we continue to be very cautious about the economic outlook and are therefore moving forward with additional reengineering efforts to help further reduce our operating costs," said Kenneth I. Chenault, chairman and chief executive officer in a release. The 4,000 layoffs will result in a restructuring charge of about $180 million to...
  • Obama's Socialism Express

    Inflation THE HIDDEN TAX INCREASE As spending increases, and more currency is created, the U.S. dollar’s value will be debased, and your money will be worth less. This means someone making $40,000 per year may really only have $12,000 per year worth of value from their income. That also means that the individuals and small businesses who make over $250,000 per year won’t really be making $250,000 per year - since their money will be worth less - yet they will still be taxed at a greater level. As you can see, this “hidden tax” of inflation affects everyone in...

    12/17/2006 - LOS ANGELES (AFPN) -- Retired Lt. Col. Roy White picked up the phone and on the other end was an opportunity to contribute to the military again. The phone call was from Michael Kerr, the founder of Snowball Express, and he wanted to get every military family who had a lost a loved one in the war on terror to California for a magical weekend. To make that possible he needed a lot of airplane tickets. Colonel White, now a captain with Southwest Airlines, was in a position to help. The colonel said he found gathering support for...

    SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill., Dec. 4, 2006 -- A Post-It note over one of the computers in the Deployment and Distribution Operations Center here says, “Nothing happens until something moves.” You get a feeling for this saying and the mission of U.S. Transportation Command at the Balad Air Base-Anaconda Logistics Support Area complex in Iraq. Located northwest of Baghdad, the complex is the heart of logistics for coalition forces in Iraq. In 2003, it was a runway, some bombed buildings and dust. Today, it is a military city, with C-17s offloading cargo, C-130s picking up goods, a full...

      Double vortex at Venus South pole     ESA’s Venus Express data undoubtedly confirm for the first time the presence of a huge 'double-eye' atmospheric vortex at the planet's south pole. This striking result comes from analysis of the data gathered by the spacecraft during the first orbit around the planet.  On 11 April this year, Venus Express was captured into a first elongated orbit around Venus, which lasted 9 days, and ranged between 350 000 and 400 kilometres from Venus' surface. This orbit represented for the Venus Express scientists a unique opportunity to observe the planet from...
