Yeah he was pretty meek on almost any issue, except MIC. He is more comparable to W, than any contemporary republican. Hell LBJ way outshined him on civil rights issues.

guaranteed minimum income?

Isn't there some way to restrict any tax benefits to the top 1% instead of the plebes? That way the job creators would put more folks to work, increasing the tax base... instead of squandering it on the listless labor class.

I wonder if the ratings agencies are doing the same for the packaged loans yet. Were any of S&P's settlement requirements that they publish and stick to, some kind of standard for ratings?

Stocks are overpriced, overleveraged, headed for trouble

Berg and his team analyzed other factors, such as corporate profits and leverage, and found a disturbing picture.

He argued that forward price-to-earnings ratios are not very good predictors of market downturns, as they tend to be biased during boom times, but other metrics, such as the so-called CAPE ratio, Q-ratio and Buffett indicator all offer warning signs.

Sure, sure, for as long as the continues to grow the balance sheet. And if the Fed does do a one and done 1/4 pt. hike, I bet they have to grow it even faster just to stave of the negative economic multipliers.

Doc Holiday wrote:

commerce clause thing

Net neutrality proponents need to frame the alternatives as a tax on customers, whose proceeds go to the telco's and politcos. Hell, introduce a bill taxing everyone and paying the usual suspects, to make the point. "My bill will do the same as ending net neutrality." Then you might get some of Nordquist's crew to see it for what it is.

Where is the next RNC convention?

Ah, yes.

By re-classifying broadband internet as a utility, the FCC has effectively declared that it's a right, nay a necessity, for every American. That's why it also dismantled laws in states like Tennessee that restrict municipalities from supplying broadband and competing against private companies like AT&T and Comcast -- often with much better services. But on the same day that the broadband industry sued the FCC to stop net neutrality rules, the state of Tennessee also sued the regulator to overturn its city-friendly decision. It claims that the FCC "has unlawfully inserted itself between the State of Tennessee and the State's own political subdivisions," calling it "arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of discretion."

Stupid FCC, cutting off the gravy-train between CableTown and TN legislators. Free speech!
