I've been reading a lot about Hillary's trip to Chipotle and some have criticized this as a foolish focus on the irrelevant. I disagree, though I do think most of the writers are missing the real meaning and nuance of the story.
As I'm sure everyone knows five Colorado counties have voted to secede from the state of Colorado. We're about to see a 51st state! Its a logical reaction to the partisan split that's overtaking the country. But its not as simple as it sounds.
Given time restrains I didn't intend to blog here atm but I had an experience with my Hotmail account that may have some interest to people here and apropos as we are now discussing internet privacy issues.
As I post this the Greeks are getting ready to vote. I mentioned in an other thread below that James Galbrath has been an informal adviser to Varoufakis. Here is an other article that came out at the end of the week by him. He politely calls them myths but they are really misinformation. It is a good read even if you disagree with him.
Well, it is official. Jim Webb is running for President. He threw his hat into the ring.
Webb adds a decidedly more conservative option for Democratic voters in a field in which former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has tacked to the left under criticism from liberal former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Now we have five to choose from in the primaries. He will make a good addition to the debates coming from the conservative side of the Democratic Party.
We don't often hear from James Kenneth Galbraith like we do with other economist. I read in the Boston Globe this morning that he has been in Europe as a informal consultant to the Finance Minister and Prime Minister of Greece.
This article is his inside look at what is going on and who to blame.
If the Greeks vote “yes,” on the other hand, the uncertainty is political. SYRIZA may split and its government may fall. What then? There is no credible alternative government in Greece. Moreover, it is hard to think that any government formed to accept the surrender and deepen the depression would last very long.
Newsome says that she refuses to give into the fear emanating from the Confederate flag, she also notes that she is not an outside agitator since her ancestors came in the United States through the slave markets of antebellum Charleston. It's an inspiring read.
