CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Presidential elections start in Iowa.
On Friday, Sen. Rand Paul put his stake in the ground for a possible run in 2016 by mocking the Obama administration and delivering a blistering critique of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of [...]
The New York Times calls Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) one of the Republican Party’s “rising stars.” The Daily Beast says he’s “a smoother, more pragmatic political operator” than his father, former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Tex.). All that seems true. So riddle me this: What’s the upside for Paul to put his name on e-mails like this one, which landed in my inbox this morning?
It’s one thing for no-name pols to work [...]
State Representative Debbie Riddle (R – 150) loves the word ‘integrity.’ She was also a big supporter of recent Bill HB 16, which would have required Texas voters to present proof of identification. “Y’see, that’s very important because the very freedom of our nation is based on the integrity of our ballot box,” she said. “And if things are so lax that fraudulent voting can occur, then that means your vote can [...]

From The Big Picture:
I only recall meeting Barton Biggs once (via a green room somewhere), but his legend preceded him.
This list of quotes (Thanks J!) should give you a solid basis as to his thought process and investment philosophy:
* “Good information, thoughtful analysis, quick but not impulsive reactions, and knowledge of the historic interaction between companies, sectors, countries, and asset classes under similar circumstances in the past are all important [...]
Ex-England captain John Terry has been cleared of racially abusing fellow footballer Anton Ferdinand.
The Chelsea and England defender had denied making the comments to the Queens Park Rangers player during a match at Loftus Road last October.
The 31-year-old told Westminster Magistrates’ Court he was merely repeating what he thought Mr Ferdinand had said to him as they traded insults.
Mr Terry had described himself as “angry and upset” over the [...]
House Bill 1647, which was passed by both chambers of the Missouri legislature last month and currently awaits Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) signature, has once again come under attack. The Missouri Press Association is working with Missouri Prosecuting Attorneys to undermine your rights by pushing for Governor Nixon to veto this common-sense Right to Carry legislation. Don’t let the media and power-hungry prosecutors win this battle. If they do, HB 1647 will [...]

A Sri Lanka hen has given birth to a chick without an egg, in a new twist on the age-old question of whether the chicken or the egg came first.
Instead of passing out of the hen’s body and being incubated outside, the egg was incubated in the hen for 21 days and then hatched inside the hen.
The chick is fully formed and healthy, although the mother has died.
The government veterinary [...]
(CNSNews.com) – Although an Occupy Wall Street protest group in Pasadena, Calif., tried to get a slot to march in the Rose Parade on Jan. 2, officials with the parade said no. The group now plans to march down the street behind a group of police cars that mark the end of the parade.
In November, the Occupy group announced its plans to “occupy” the parade, but the Pasadena Tournament of [...]
On Monday, the Texas House passed a resolution commending President Barack Obama, intelligence personnel and members of the military for taking out Osama bin Laden.
But 10 of the 101 Republican members of the House are recorded in the House Journal as voting against the resolution. And 52 who supported the resolution entered a joint Journal statement saying they do not support Obama’s overall foreign policy.
Riddle me this…. if consumers make up the lion share of GDP, and consumers are fundamentally shifting away from consuming anywhere near the levels of days gone by, why would anyone think we are going to recover to the past version of normal.
I say a new normal, lower consumption era is here to stay. I believe media, financials, .gov and worse, the retailers and CRE have yet to get the [...]
