Have I said Homeopathy is bullshit? Well, it is. It really is bullshit extraordinaire.
Homeopathy – Debunked a real good YouTube video via Rationality Rules:
Inequality By Michael Hudson The One Percent have found a pressing need for the services of mainstream economists To paraphrase Mark Twain, everyone complains about inequality, but nobody does anything about it. What they do is to use “inequality” as a takeoff point to project their own views on how to make society more prosperous and at the same time more equal.
The full speech from which this shorter video was constructed…
I think this is one of the best articles I have read on the state of labor in the US if not the world and the incredible problems (a huge conundrum) the business community and indeed society and government now face going forward.
Eastman Kodak was one of the technological giants of the 20th century, a dominant seller of film, cameras and other products. It made its founders unfathomably wealthy and created thousands of high-income jobs for executives, engineers and other white-collar professionals. The same is true of Apple today.
A famous quote from Abraham Lincoln in his First Annual Message given December 3, 1861
Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. Capital has its rights, which are as worthy of protection as any other rights…

Osteen & Prosperity Gospel apoligetics…the author writes:
I’ve been studying the American prosperity gospel for more than a decade, and I have come to the stunning conclusion that Joel Osteen seems to be a pretty nice guy. He is the cheery advertisement for the 606,000-square-foot Lakewood Church and, with the gorgeous Victoria by his side, tours the country in packed-out arenas to bring “A Night of Hope” — a religion-lite, inspirational speech set to music.
