Or China. China breaks up Muslim riots with live ammo. China occupies what the uighurs call "eastern turkministan".

Where is the outrage?

Look at the brutality in Syria, any global outrage of that?

AP:  35 PERCENT IN US FACING DEBT COLLECTORS

US Home ownership rate in 2013 was 65%

Labor Force Participation Rate for 25-29 Year Olds Hits Record Low,

As a landlord I can tell you it is tough as hell collecting rent in the Obama economy.

Areas of US facing record rates of evictions.  Blacks, women and children are hit hardest.

Just some random, unconnected thoughts.

Thomas Sowell:
" If ceasefires were the road to peace, the Middle East would easily be the most peaceful place on the planet."
Cease the Ceasefires     (read it all)

Victor Davis Hanson:
"Hamas sees the death of its civilians as an advantage; Israel sees the death of its civilians as a disaster. "
"When Israel wins militarily, it seems to lose politically. When Hamas loses, it seems to win."

"Timidity explains much of the Europeansí easy damnation of Israel. Putin escapes the disdain accorded to Netanyahu, because Netanyahu governs a small nation and is predictably reasonable; Putin governs a large one and is predictably unreasonable. Trashing Putin might involve some risk; trashing Netanyahu brings psychological relief. If Israel were large and Netanyahu demonic, and if Russia were small and Putin Westernized and reasonable, then our cheap scorn would be leveled at Russia and not Israel."

" If Israel blows up Hamasís tunnels, dismantles its arsenals, destroys its missiles, devastates its military, and leaves Hamas weak and discredited, the world will quietly turn its attention away in a sort of grudging admiration of Israelís success, with an unspoken conclusion that Hamas may have gotten what it asked for. And those left amid the wreckage that Hamas brought upon them will among themselves blame Hamas as much as Israel for their miseries ó in the tradition in which losers blame their own dictators as much as they blame the victors."

"Israel must ensure that Hamas nevertheless loses far more than Israel itself does, not because the world will publicly sympathize with the cause of the Jewish state, but because, for all its ideological chest-pounding, an amoral world still privately gravitates to the successful and distances itself from the failed. Only if Israel finishes its ongoing dismantling of Hamas will the current war end."

The Fedís Massive Power Grab
...The Fed has seamlessly morphed from an institution that occasionally intervened in financial markets to a monster that apparently wants to control a great deal of the US financial system.
...

I like the Brian Wesbury who speaks out boldly against failing policies much better than the one who tells us things will be just fine no matter how badly we screw things up.

Me too.

Excellent, Bigdog!

"Benjamin Franklin, Teddy Roosevelt, and Winston Churchill ...all were proficient in Latin."  And it was my Dad's 'foreign language'.

Another I like, post hoc ergo propter hoc, describing the logic fallacy, after this, therefore because of this.  Also means, that logical fallacy is as old as the Latin language.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post_hoc_ergo_propter_hoc
(I see it comes up in the comments along with other good ones.)
