A Ruling Class Hissy Fit

The reaction of the ruling elite and their minions in official conservadom to the Donald Trump surge is best characterized as a hissy fit, an extended temper tantrum that the GOP base isn’t doing what they want them to.

Donald Trump vs. Davos Man

Coined by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington, the term Davos Man was meant to refer to members of the global elite who view themselves as completely international.

The Banking Oligarchs

Can anyone stop the overweening lunacy of the banking oligarchs? No more than anyone can stop pythons from devouring rabbits at play. Our bankers are not honorable. They are not farsighted. And they have set in motion forces that no human effort can avert. Moreover they long ago formed a deathly co-op with history’s most […]

Did Barack Obama’s Chicago Connections to “El Chapo” Lead to His Escape?

Government Crushes People – Then Writes Them Checks

bnkbltA computer programming maxim is “Garbage in – garbage out.”

(C)omputers, since they operate by logical processes, will unquestioningly process unintended, even nonsensical, input data (“garbage in”) and produce undesired, often nonsensical, output (“garbage out”).

George Handlery - Migration’s Miseries

Duly NotedSome troubles stay perennially newsworthy. Hardly is the “last one” about them penned, they revive through unforeseeable issues and, by sanity’s standards, surprising scandals.

The Missed Lesson of Greece’s Financial Crisis

On Sunday, 61% of Greek voters rejected the European bailout referendum. The Greek financial situation has led many American conservatives (and neoliberals) to point to Greece as an object lesson in the failures of socialism. Focusing only on Greece’s spending habits, however, misses the underlying issue, and American conservatives need to understand this if they […]
