If NASA has never landed man on the Moon, then the notion of American Empire is also fake.
It is simply a phantom "thought form" artificially constructed in people's mind. Once more and more people see the truth, then the phantom will be no more.
I'd give the URL... but Yahoo don't allow that. Just type in her name in the search window, then 'biography'... then look for it.
dirty work for them, I see:
Special correspondent on economics, business and public policy; Newsweek/Daily Beast
Megan McArdle is a Koch-trained conservative activist working as a business journalist and pundit. She earned her MBA from the University of Chicago, received journalism training at the Kochs' flagship libertarian think-tank, the Institute for Humane Studies, and has used her position at The Atlantic and, most recently, Newsweek/Daily Beast, to run cover for and promote Koch interests and the Republican Party agenda. In early 2009, a GOP outfit backed by the Kochs hailed McArdle for her "leadership role in ... re-branding the Republican party." McArdle continues to conceal the extent of her deeply conflicted relationships with the Koch influence-peddling machine.
The recovered history of Megan McArdle
Megan McArdle built her career on bashing public servants and government, but her father's taxpayer-subsidized work in government and as a government lobbyist funded her upbringing as a "child of privilege" as she described herself. McArdle's father, Francis McArdle, was a career public servant in the New York City administration who took the revolving door to the private sector as chief lobbyist for the union-busting General Contractor's Association of New York, where her father represented private contractors "primarily engaged in construction of public buildings and plants." In 1987, the head of the New York state Organized Crime Task Force accused Francis McArdle's clients of pervasive corruption, bribery, racketeering and union-busting. Thanks to New York's lucrative public construction projects, Megan was able to attend Riverdale Country School, the most expensive prep school in America, according to Time magazine. Today, annual tuition at Riverdale runs over $40,000.
In the early-mid 1990s, McArdle attended the University of Pennsylvania. She converted from "ultraliberal to libertarian" in her junior year, after working as a canvasse
was born in 1979... so of course he knows all about Reagan and Bush Senior. But he writes away anyway, oblivious to the obvious contradiction than he couldn't possibly know a damn thing about what he's spouting off about.
1. Where were you clowns when the republicans were running rough shod over your rights (Reagan Administration, Bush Administrations, Republican Congress since President Obama was elected)? You can all go to hell.
A big crash, such as 10% drop in major stock indices in one day, may be coming.
I know that it is hard to imagine that this could be true.
But if you have a usable brain and the basic ability to reason, then the conclusion could be quite troubling.
Many people would not even think about it simply because the lie, if it is a lie, is too big to comprehend.
Moon Walker - Advice - Please have your medical personnel review your meds.
Just focus on these two questions:
(1) Why was the absence of manned Moon landing conducted by US or by another other country, since 1972?
(2) what is the probability of successful manned Moon landing at its first try given the fact the unmanned soft-landing on the Moon surface was achieved only after more than 30 failures?
Baltic Dry Index
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Baltic Dry Index 1985–2013
The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is a number (in USD) issued daily by the London-based Baltic Exchange. Not restricted to Baltic Sea countries, the index provides "an assessment of the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. Taking in 23 shipping routes measured on a timecharter basis, the index covers Handysize, Supramax, Panamax, and Capesize dry bulk carriers carrying a range of commodities including coal, iron ore and grain."
Every working day, a panel of international shipbrokers submits their view of current freight cost on various routes to the Baltic Exchange. The routes are meant to be representative, i.e. large enough in volume to matter for the overall market.
These rate assessments are then weighted together to create both the overall BDI and the size specific Supramax, Panamax, and Capesize indices. The BDI factors in the four different sizes of oceangoing dry bulk transport vessels:
Handysize 15,000-35,000 34% 18% w/ Supramax
The BDI contains route assessments based only on time-charter hire rates "USD paid per day per Metric Ton". Fuel (="Bunkers") is the largest voyage dependent cost and moves with the crude oil price. In periods where bunker costs fluctuate significantly, there BDI will therefore move more than the shipowners' realised earnings.
Baltic Dry Index... BDI... you'll find it at Bloomberg.
Type it in above @ Search Finance, or Yahoo Search... or even Google Search. But for your children's sake and your grandchildren's sake, look it up. It is going to affect all of us.
Even the senior notes holders will get nothing? That is quite destabilizing.
How about the depositors? Do they have to suffer a haircut?
Underground Stock Alerts* (google em) just came out with a detailed report on JPM today - I recommend any fellow shareholders here sign up immediately and wait for the next update, last time they alerted a stock as a buy it went up 1350%, and last two times they put out sell ratings the stocks dove over 75% - don't be the last to know and get screwed, I learned my lesson on their AAPL sell alert, and GOOG buy alert sub $300
sorry it was in the investment group of the family espirito santo not in banco espirito santo.
I find it strange the the news media think it's essential to report on every sick person in the U.S. who recently visited Africa. Not everyone automatically has Ebola.
This is simply a way to engage in fearmongering. It distracts the public from an incompetent president and a corrupt Congress.
