Documents seen by the NYT show that the firms contracted Shanghai Linjiang International Travel Agency to organize events and conferences. However, there's no evidence of wrongdoing.

  • To help former soldiers fill advanced manufacturing positions, major corporations, community colleges and veterans organizations are forming a coalition called "Get Skills to Work" that will train the vets and assist them in translating their existing skills. The companies include GE, Alcoa (AA), Boeing (BA) and Lockheed Martin (LMT). GE CEO Jeff Imelt says it's not just patriotism that spurs the firms: "veterans are a perfect fit." [View news story]

  • The Obama administration releases its final fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks, requiring each automaker's fleet to reach an average 54.5 miles/gallon by 2025, nearly doubling current levels. To meet the standard, automakers will need to introduce new technologies and sell more alternative fuel vehicles. Critics say the rules will add thousands to new car prices[View news story]
    Obama continues to over-burden the system, the game plan of Cloward & Pivens.

  • A Broader View Of Clean Energy [View article]
    The forthcoming inflation wave will prove a bargin in the long term, for whichever oil major decides to pull the trigger on CLNE.
    Plus...the addition of their own retail gasoline facilities to include LNG, other than that of just the truck stops, would magnify the overall results to the bottom line.

    It's usually cheaper to "buy, rather than build it yourself".

  • "Would Americans accept 'Socialized Medicine'?" asks Princeton economist Uwe Reinhardt in the NYT. They already do - "the vast health system" that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs operates, which Reinhardt describes as the "purest form of socialized medicine." The VA system is also one that neither political party would ever seek to privatize.  [View news story]
    "the vast health system" that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs operates, which Reinhardt describes as the "purest form of socialized medicine."

    The quote fails to articulate the level of care the VA provides our wounded warriors. VA operated facilities would stand no chance of surviving in the competitive private arena.Unfortunately many VA patients have not the resources for a better care facility, and are relegated to this "government option".

    Our fighting men and women deserve better.

  • "Freeing capitalism to do what it does best won't just create national wealth and reduce poverty, but expand the ability of Americans to achieve earned success — to pursue happiness," writes Charles Murray in the WSJ, where he analyzes why "capitalism has an image problem." Restoring capitalism's reputation, therefore, also includes returning the "vocabulary of virtue" to the discussion.  [View news story]
    For "virtuous" capitalism to be respected and successful, the government regulators.. must be of the same.
    No more "looking the other way, revolving door employment opportunities between gov. and priv.sector, and gov. job security from cradle to grave."
    It can be no coincidence, that so many former gov. officials find their way into private sector employment and million dollar jobs,while so rarely the other way around.

    What's good for the goose, is good for the gander.

  • Accompanying Laffer's and Moore's thesis about taxes and migration in the WSJ is an interview with demographer Joel Kotkin about California, which has lost nearly 4M people in 20 years. Kotkin blames high taxes, real-estate prices - due to restrictions - and energy costs, due to green policies that also preclude the development of 25B barrels of shale oil.  [View news story]
    California..."the land of wine and honey", could soon be the land of "2buckchuck", if and when "reality becomes real".

  • The problem of student loans is not confined to the young: Americans 60 and older owe about $36B, of which over 10% is delinquent, a recent NY Fed study shows. Some of the debt is because people studied later in life or co-signed for loans for their children or grandchildren, but some of it is also an overhang from when they were young.  [View news story]
    a little sarcasim, although painful to some, echos the truth.

  • The EPA announces that its new rule for pollution limits CO2 emissions from power plants to 1K tons per megawatt. Though the new regulation is viewed as a "coal-killer" by many analysts, coal ETFs PKOL, KOL are both up moderately for the day as the CO2 rule is likely to face political challenges and the news is already baked in to prices. [View news story]
    About the only thing Obama was truthful about back in 2008,
    was that..."energy prices would be going up".

    As the prices for energy rises,
    Obama's poll numbers should decline, possibly into the 30 percentile range.
    People vote their "wallets", and empty wallets can in no way be a positive for the current administration.
