    It's Time To Tell Paulson, Bernanke, And Geithner: You Were Right And We Were Wrong — Thank You For Saving The Economy Mark Dow, Behavioral MacroDec. 11, 2012, 2:07 PM URL Mark Dow is a proprietary trader and author of the blog Behavioral Macro. The U.S. Treasury this morning rid itself of the last piece of exposure it had to AIG, the insurer at the center of the 2008 financial crisis. Both the Fed and the U.S. Treasury intervened heavily during the crisis, with the ostensible objective of stabilizing the system and circuit-breaking the self-reinforcing fear that was already rippling...
  • Doctors Push For Easier Access For Plan B Prescriptions For Teens

    The American Academy of Pediatrics is encouraging doctors to issue teenagers prescriptions for the emergency contraception pill Plan B before they begin having sex. According to their new report, the drug is far more effective if used within 24 hours of conception and it could easily take that long for a teen to obtain a script for the drug. The teen birth rate in the U.S. is currently about 34.3 births per every 1,000 women and while the AAP recommends pre-emptive contraception prescriptions, they acknowledge it's a short-term fix: "That's tragic, really. We really can do better. By providing more...

    American Thinker ^ | 4/9/12 | Paul J. Shlichta
    In the middle of the battle for this year's Republican nomination, a curiously irrelevant diversion has appeared. Suddenly, we're told, a "Hillary 2016" bandwagon has sprung up out of nowhere. Senator Gillibrand proposed the idea, Nancy Pelosi endorsed it, Bill Clinton has coyly denied it (but given it his blessing), and a Google search discloses over 300 hits about it. In Hollywood, they say that if a starlet gets on a magazine cover, she's lucky, if she gets on two, she's good, but if she gets on half a dozen, all at once, she's got a good agent. Those 300...

    The press corps has a mild buzz going about a weekend contretemps ginned up, for publicity's sake, by Sarah Palin's camp, in her ongoing campaign to show how badly she is victimized by the media. The odd thing is that she has been victimized by the media, horribly so, and many of us (myself included, in several posts after the Gabby Giffords shooting) have rushed to her defense -- so she doesn't need to gin up controversies out of thin air. But that's exactly what she and her team did this past weekend.

    San Francisco's irrepressible former mayor, Willie Brown, was walking along one of the city's streets when he happened to run into another former city official that he knew, James McCray. McCray's greeting to him was "You're 10." "What are you talking about?" Willie Brown asked. McCray replied: "I just walked from Civic Center to Third Street and you're only the 10th black person I've seen." That is hardly surprising. The black population of San Francisco is less than half of what it was in 1970, and it fell another 19 percent in the past decade. A few years ago,...

    As the New York Times has reported, Connecticut Attorney General and Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal remained stateside during the Vietnam War thanks to five deferments he obtained, the last of which enabled him to take a job in the Nixon White House. During research for my book The Strong Man: John Mitchell and the Secrets of Watergate (Doubleday 2008), I uncovered some documents that showed Blumenthal, then a staff lawyer for Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a key domestic policy adviser to the president, had aroused the suspicions of Attorney General Mitchell. The year was 1969, and the country was wracked by...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he has not succeeded in bringing the country together, acknowledging an atmosphere of divisiveness that has washed away the lofty national feeling surrounding his inauguration a year ago. "That's what's been lost this year ... that whole sense of changing how Washington works," Obama said in an interview with People magazine. The president said his second-year agenda will be refocused on uniting the country around common values, "whether we're Democrats or Republicans." "We all want work that's satisfying, pays the bills and gives children a better future and security," Obama said in the...

    First it was social promotions. When our children had difficulty passing, we went to a pass/fail system that no longer honored achievement but simply sent the student on to the next grade in order to NOT stigmatize the child. Less emphasis was placed on factual and historical learning and placed on project achievements and social awareness sensitivity. 2 + 2 could = 5 if we tried hard. And we get dumber. Next we went to No Child Left Behind. In order to increase the minimal education level of American students, we began to “test Teach”. That is, the teachers and...

    The press is all agog over the President leading the UN security council which came out with extremely artfully worded resolution that endorses the eventual goal of "a world without nuclear weapons". That document is so carefully wordsmithed that the 2 most obvious violators of the UN's non proliferation treaty Iran and North Korea weren't mentioned by name. A vaguely worded document from an dysfunctional international agency and the press tells us how much progress is being made. The facts tell a different story, a story of a rookie in way over his head.

    They saved the banks. Who cares . . . if people are still losing their jobs? So is another stimulus in the works? "Any economic stimulus plan is going to be part political, part economic." Last winter's plan "was two parts political, loaded with projects for folks who'd missed out the past eight years," said Vitner. "If they're going to get another one through, it's going to have to help the folks who didn't support the first one." That means more road and bridge projects, more aid to state and local governments, and maybe tax breaks for small business.

This morning, North Korea launched its sixth short-range missile since Monday’s nuclear test. North Korea has also stated that it is no longer bound by the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War. Further, President Obama has proposed a $1.4 billion reduction of the Missile Defense Agency’s budget. “The United Nations sanctions have failed to stop North Korea’s development...

    As an American, I have always been inspired by the fact that my country welcomes those who seek refuge. And as long as our government officials maintain our borders and ensure that those coming from other countries are screened in order to protect those who legally live here, the concept of welcoming immigrants is a noble one. However, something has gone awry. Indeed, illegal immigration into the U.S. has become an immense problem and a clear and present danger. Documented illegal immigration has more than doubled in the last decade. It has grown, by conservative counts, from 3.5 million in...
