http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Cuba legalized the sale and purchase of private property on Thursday. It ended fifty years of failed attempts to make communism workable. Cuba has discovered that collective ownership does not bring prosperity and they've decided to try house flipping.
Occupy Wall Street protesters shut down Oakland's port with the mayor's approval Wednesday and smashed bank windows downtown. It's a real problem for the local police. Under the U.S. Constitution you can't stop Raiders fans from expressing themselves.
The DEA seized a two-billion-dollar shipment of pot and cocaine Monday while it was being shipped into California by a Mexican cartel. What a political mistake. Californians were upset enough at the president because they had no jobs, and now they have no drugs.
Starbucks announced Friday it just opened its five hundredth store in China. This helps our global competitiveness. If we can get the Chinese hooked on six-hundred-calorie lattes and coffee cake it will slow them down to the point where we can catch up.
The Federal Reserve conceded that joblessness will stay above eight percent all next year. They're managing decline. The Fed has a dual mission to keep inflation low and to keep the number of jumpers beneath the level that snarls traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Justice Department convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout Friday of selling weapons to South American terrorists. He broke all the rules. Under the WTO he's required to sell the weapons to the Justice Department, which gives them to a gun store on the border, which sells them to a cartel, which sells the weapons to the South American terrorists. That's how jobs are created.
President Obama spoke at the annual Group of Twenty summit in France Friday. He said he wants to help the Europeans solve their economic crisis. He wants Europe to borrow money from China and pay American construction workers to beautify their roads.
Journal Nature said Friday Ice Age beasts like the wooly mammoth and wooly rhinos disappeared six thousand years ago. Scientists say Native Americans killed them all. This proves that British settlers were more fierce than wooly mammoths and wooly rhinos.
