Bulgaria succumbs to
euro deflation curse

Telegraph [UK], by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/20/2013 1:12:08 PM

Another euro-pegged government defending an overvalued exchange rate bites the dust, a reminder that the underlying economic and social disaster across the Europe’s Arc of Depression is still getting worse. Bulgarian prime minister Boiko Borisov resigned this morning after days of mass protests against austerity across the country. “I will not participate in a government under which police are beating people. Every drop of blood is a shame for us,” he said. “Our power was handed to us by the people, today we are handing it back to them.” This follows the defenestration of the free-market finance minister earlier this

Bulgaria is floundering because of ill advised decisions in Bulgaria. I wish the media would quit making things up they have no knowledge about. Just publishing their nonsense without an ounce of research or effort.

Never mind, there will be plenty of money sent back from the soon legal immigrants moving to the other Euroweinnie Union countries.

Final bill for Margaret Thatcher´s funeral
comes to just £1.2m, a fraction of the
£10m Labour MPs complained about
Daily Mail [UK], by Matt Chorley    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/31/2013 6:12:58 AM     Post Reply
Margaret Thatcher´s spectacular ceremonial funeral cost the taxpayer just £1.2million, just a fraction of the sum claimed by left-wing opponents. The final bill for the ceremony at St Paul´s Cathedral was revealed by ministers today in a rebuff to critics who suggested the costs would top £10million. [Snip] On the morning of the funeral, Labour frontbencher Diane Abbott complained about the bill. ´There is just no precedent, it’s a breach of protocol and it’s going to cost £10million,´ she claimed, in what now appears to be a vast overestimate. Tory MP Conor Burns, a close friend

Obamacare call center hired part-time
employees - denying them the health

A call center due to open in the fall to tell the public about ObamaCare has been criticized for offering half of its employees part-time work, which will deny them the very benefits they have been hired to promote. [Snip] They believed most of the roles would be full-time and come with health insurance. However, according to the Contra Costa Times, half of the positions have now been made part time, meaning 90 employees, who are estimated to be paid $15 to $18 an hour, will face costs of between $600 and $2,900 a month for their healthcare.

Prepackaged salad behind
cyclospora outbreak that

Bagged salad is being blamed for a brutal outbreak of cyclospora that has mostly ravaged the country’s mid-section. Hundreds of cases of the infection reported across Iowa and Nebraska in recent months are being blamed on a prepackaged salad mix. Officials are not sure if outbreaks in 13 other states are linked to the same salad. Iowa has been by far the hardest hit, at least 145 people have caught the nasty stomach bug. [Snip] Investigators at both the state and federal level are still working to narrow down the exact source of the outbreak.

Hawaii sets aside $100,000 to offer

Hawaii is hoping to take the burden off its welfare system by saying aloha to its 17,000 homeless residents. The state will offer one-way tickets home to any eligible homeless person to anywhere in the continental United States. Hawaii has allotted $100,000 for a three year trial run of the so-called ´return-to-home´ program, which could also even offer participants beds on cruise ships bound for their homes. [Snip] ´It´s not for 5,000 homeless people. It´s going to be a handful of homeless people that we send home … to their support unit.´ The goal, supporters say, is

   

 

  


 
Barack Obama’s clueless message
to America’s middle class shows a
presidency out of touch with reality
Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/31/2013 4:25:41 AM     Post Reply
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

When does a nudge become a shove? Americans may find out in coming years, as the federal government is setting up a ´behavioral insights team´ to tinker with the way we accomplish everything from saving money and staying in school to losing weight and becoming more energy-efficient.

Democrats with wandering hands:
that´s a real ´war on women´
Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/30/2013 4:16:40 PM     Post Reply
Whenever a Republican guy is caught fooling around, it´s treated by the press as a damning indictment of his party and his philosophy--proof positive of the hypocrisy at the heart of American conservatism. He has to quit politics, rediscover Jesus and preferably never show his face in public again. On the other hand, if a Democrat uses prostitutes or sexually harasses their employees their career is oddly evergreen. Why? Because they´re officially designated "feminists"--flawed, perhaps, but at least they´re on the right side in that grand existential conflict called The War On Women. Never mind that, behind closed doors

It has been a torrid few months for the thugs, gangsters and misguided ideologues that make up the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, or the Pakistan Taliban. First they tried to murder a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Even from point blank range the assassins couldn´t kill Malala Yousafzai. And worse still, they have given her a global platform from which to promote her campaign for girls education. Every time she speaks it is a reminder of their failure. Then they tried to derail Pakistan´s elections, issuing a slew of threats against people exercising their democratic right to vote. It made little difference, as the May

We will never know whether lonely

So Bradley Manning has been acquitted of “aiding the enemy” but found guilty of five counts of violating the Espionage Act, as well as five of theft. Meanwhile, sundry demonstrators at the site of the court martial in Fort Meade have been carrying placards saying “Bradley Manning is a hero”. I profoundly disagree. For what it’s worth, I think that his criminal convictions show that justice is being done. First, an acknowledgement: the abuses that Manning disclosed should have been brought to light, notably the horrifying footage of a US helicopter gunship opening fire on a news crew in Baghdad.

Shambles that just beggars belief.
The NHS 111 service has been
a disaster from the start

Once again, we are left rubbing our eyes in disbelief at the utter shambles that passes for the administration of a public service. The NHS 111 service, which answers non-emergency calls from the public, is close to collapse after its main provider pulled out. [Snip] It is staffed by people who, sometimes after as little as two weeks of training, use a computer system to assess how unwell callers are and decide whether to issue advice over the phone, call a nurse or send for an ambulance. The call centres are typically staffed by 60 unqualified workers and up to

Racism? It is not racist to

All mobile billboards aimed at illegal immigrants do is inform people who have no right to be here that the Government will help them return home voluntarily. But the reaction they have generated from the Left and the pro-immigration industry has been astonishing. They have denounced that simple message as ‘racist’. Let me clear this up once and for all--it is not racist to ask people who are here illegally to leave Britain. It is merely telling them to comply with the law. Our campaign targets illegal immigrants without any discrimination at all between them. By no stretch of the

It was a top secret command centre set up by Winston Churchill to defend London from German aircraft during the Second World War. Deep inside Brompton Road Underground station, the Royal Artillery ran its anti-aircraft operations room tasked with blasting enemy bombers from the skies in the Blitz. The bunker is also thought to be where Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler´s deputy in the Nazi Party, was brought to be interrogated after being captured in Scotland in 1941. But now the Ministry of Defence is selling off the 28,000 sq ft ´ghost station´ in a bid to raise up to £60million

There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament.

Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee

It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase.

America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia.

A year after resigning from congress over his first sexting scandal, Anthony Weiner claimed that he was a mellowed out new father working every day to be a better husband by doing chores around the house. "Every day since this has happened, I´ve tried to become a better person, a husband that Huma deserves and as good a father as I can be," Weiner told People Magazine in outtakes released Sunday from his now infamous July 18, 2012 interview. "I´ve explored every way to try to do those things and I´m committed to continuing on that path."

Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding. The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all

In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.

Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,

Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
