HT weaselZippers.Analyst: Dow Jones Repeating Pattern That Appeared Just Before Great Depression Crash.Obama is setting us up for the perfect storm.On purpose??
With the US trapped in depression, this really is starting to feel like 1932.The US workforce shrank by 652,000 in June, one of the sharpest contractions ever. The rate of hourly earnings fell 0.1pc. Wages are flirting with deflation.Perhaps some more "advice" to Europe how to handle things MrPresident?Or how to play golf???
Notes from Afghanistan: July 2 "The writing is on the wall".In one stall, I found an impromptu poll asking “Are we making progress (in Afghanistan 73 per cent of those polled think the mission is failing.
Why is Obama Changing “Freedom of Religion” to “Freedom of Worship”?Words matter. Words often hold great meaning. That is especially true when it comes to the words of our founding documents like the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. Those words are especially cherished. Yet in the past year it appears the Obama administration has been changing one key word in that sacred scroll.
Burqas, bad guys and budgets dominate this morning’s front pages in france.The burqa, the cloth bag which some muslim men find it reasonable to keep their women inside, is facing a ban here in France. The burqa is clearly hot, unhygenic and makes clog dancing difficult.
IRAN'S culture ministry has given its blessing to a number of "Islamic" haircuts for men, with ponytails failing to make the list,more on this "revelation"here.Several barber shops were reportedly shut down and penalized in recent years for offering "decadent Western cuts."Being canadian i can't help wondering if they have bald beavers there?
What isn't wrong with Sharia law?To safeguard our rights there must be one law for all and no religious courts.The demand for the abolition of sharia courts in Britain, as elsewhere, is not an attack on people's right to religion; it is a defence of human rights, especially since the imposition of sharia courts is a demand of Islamism to restrict citizens' rights.
Turkey pulls out of navy excercise .In wake of flotilla, Turks pull out of drill with IDF, US.Clearly they "walk the walk" now with their newly found friends Iran and Hezbollah.

Hatch to vote against Kagan's nomination."The law must control the judge; the judge must not control the law," Hatch said. "I have concluded that, based on evidence rather than blind faith, General Kagan regrettably does not meet this standard and that, therefore, I cannot support her appointment."
What tactics for new US commander in Afghanistan?Some 102 foreign troops were killed in Afghanistan in June alone, the deadliest month since fighting began. Soldiers complain that they cannot fire on the Taliban because the rules of engagement are too restrictive.I'll give you my opinion :you can't win, in the long run!They will withdraw to Pakistan and when you leave they will be back,the Russians couldn't do it and neither will the US do it,learn from history!
Teachers’ Union Shuns Obama Aides at Convention.The union’s president summing up 18 months of Obama education policies by saying, “This is not the change I hoped for.” “Today our members face the most anti-educator, anti-union, anti-student environment I have ever experienced,”

Tests for oil skimmer inconclusive after rough seas.The latest order from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration adds nearly 1,100 square miles of federal waters off Louisiana's Vermilion Bay to the off-limits zone.

HT: Sultan Knish.Europe in Twilight.It is not too incredible to imagine that within a century, German, the language of Goethe, Schiller and Mann, may become a dead language. That is already the almost certain fate of the Swedish and Norwegian languages. French, Spanish and English will survive as the pidgin languages of distant colonies, but in their own capital cities, these languages are swiftly becoming transformed into dialects, crossbred with Middle Eastern and African intonations and jargon to become increasingly alien to their own origins.

Florida Sees New Threat to Its Beaches.The Obama administration has sought a six-month ban on deepwater drilling in U.S. waters to reassess risks and establish new safety procedures if necessary. But any new rules wouldn't reach Repsol's project in Cuban waters.In the event of a spill in Cuban waters, many ships, equipment and personnel from the U.S. Gulf Coast could be prevented from helping because of the embargo. But that may be changing. A Treasury Department spokeswoman said some U.S. firms involved in oil cleanup have been issued licenses to travel to Cuba in case oil from the continuing spill hits beaches there.""I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."Remember Mr Obama,who the hell do you work for?

If Israel Attacks Iran In July 2010…July of 2010 has plenty of merit to be the month of the event. We already know that Iran has enough uranium for two nuclear bombs, it just has to be enriched to a higher grade. That right there is enough to get things started but there are other factors involved also.
The date will also depend upon the targets that Israel plans to hit. If the nuclear plant at Bushehr is on the target list, the window for attacking this plant before it goes online is about to close
