2013 05 31
Current scandals aside, when the history of the Obama Administration is written the topic of crony capitalism will need a section to itself.

Let’s Be Clear: Establishing a ’No-Fly Zone’ Is an Act of War
2013 05 30
The term is a euphemism that obscures the gravity of what its advocates are suggesting -- a U.S. air attack on Syria. Kudos to Josh Rogin for breaking the news that "the White House has asked the Pentagon to draw up plans for a no-fly zone inside Syria."

We Are Now One Year Away From Global Riots, Complex Systems Theorists Say

What's the number one reason we riot? The plausible, justifiable motivations of trampled-upon humanfolk to fight back are many—poverty, oppression, disenfranchisement, etc—but the big one is more primal than any of the above.
