If the US removed the cap on social security, public spirit and generational trust would be restored. At present, there is a cap at $106K. If you make $4 million a year, you only pay a social security tax on the first $106K.
Yesterday, two holdout vulture funds, including Paul Singer's NML Capital, were in a New York Federal court versus Argentina. The Financial Times has dubbed the proceeding the "'the trial of the century' in sovereign debt restructuring."

The day after four banksters get shot by the Koreans or within close proximity, a ton of fear porn started appearing. THIS IS CLEARLY AN ATTEMPT TO PUT THE FEAR OF BANKSTERS INTO THE POPULACE. Please read both articles below. There is no doubt that there will be consequences to the irresponsible behavior of the banksters.
Banksters argue that they need size to provide competitive services. They say this even as they cut services or impose service fees on everything from statements to phoning for balances. Are they telling the truth? Is Goldman Sach mankind's savior or just the world's largest tick sucking the blood out of society? The answer seems to be that Goldman and the rest of the TBTF's are the latter. Write bloomberg and compliment them on their perspicacity.
Pope Ratzinger did not resign because of pedophilia. He permitted it because it gave him control over a bunch of sick politicians world wide. His big mistake was in being a little too open about the bank accounts that were kept there for the politicos. Why else did they go to visit him and kiss his ring?
Follow the money and story trail...
Marijuana has lots of positive side effects.
Weird stuff is happening that appears to presage big changes on the planet. The Pope resigned (not for 600 plus years has that happened) Beatrix resigned. Lots of other people are "resigning." Where are they going? Why? There are a number of theories, but what is important is the idiotic stories being told to MASK movements of gold.
As the informed know, gold pledged to the USA for collateral and returned to its countries of origin underwent amazing transformations in the hands of the US authorities. IT became gold-plated TUNGSTEN. When the Chinese, Swiss and Germans uncovered this deception, they because a trifle irate. The Chinese demanded repayment...hence the vast overpricing of gold in this country. Then the US invaded Mali intending to repay those gold thefts with gold mined there. Unfortunately, NATO elected NOT to save the people who had stolen the gold originally by standing down. So...now, it looks like the gold is MIGRATING.
The new cover story is that GOLD was found in those meteorites. Search a bit on meteorites. They aren't gold. Gold would burn up in the atmosphere and shower us with sparkles. Meteors are IRON for the most part. THERE IS NO GOLD IN THE RUSSIAN METEORS...IT IS LIES.
Reagan intended to free the USA from the tyranny of the banksters. What he didn't count on was being sabotaged by his own Vice President, George H.W. Bush. The funds that Reagan set up are still in existence. There are other funds still out there.
The Federal Reserve is supporting and maintaining a system of finance capitalism that by the 'rules' of capitalism should have disappeared in 2008.

Look at how V.K. Durham revealed major malfeasance in the US government back in 2005 and nobody did anything. Why? Because they were all involved.
Look for more "let's you and him fight" from Trimet. Why play along?

This Global Employment Trends report for 2013 is a special edition, warranted by the resurgence of the crisis in 2012. The year 2011 saw a tapering off of the recovery, followed by a dip in both growth and employment in 2012. Unemployment increased by a further 4 million over the course of 2012.

If Jorge Parra lives to see the Portland Auto Show being held from January 24th through the 27th, he will have passed his 65th day on a hunger strike in support of the Association of Injured Workers and Ex-Workers of General Motors-Colmotores (ASOTRECOL). Appearing at press conferences outside the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Parra, who has been on this third hunger strike since November 20, 2012, first apologized for having a hard time knowing what to say due to his lack of eating, and then thanked the crowd of over 100 supporters who had gathered to protest against GM.

Just when you need it most, your wages drop. And to make matters worse, the company might shut down for not one but two or even three days depending on the day of the week. Naturally, you want to be with your family and friends on the holiday. But when it cost you money to "celebrate," the holidays lose a lot of whatever meaning they may have once held.

in context of recent 'fiscal cliff' corpo-media-hysterics, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts thinks there is "an impending collapse of the exchange value," and that the U.S. dollar could unexpectedly plunge in buying power. "All of a sudden, people walk into Walmart, as usual, and they think they've walked into Neiman Marcus." No quick fixes to the bulging debt either, because "there's no way to close this deficit when corporations are moving the tax base off-shore."
Also noted of course, are the unfunded wars (unlike Social Security, Medicare etc. which are _funded_ programs).
Lance Selfa, author of The Democrats: A Critical History , unravels the myths circulating about the January 1 "fiscal cliff"--and explains what's really at stake.
The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing self-determination and creativity. The time is right for alternative economics, access instead of excess, enough instead of more, qualitative growth instead of quantitative growth. Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people.
Candlelight Vigil outside of Sen. Wyden's office - Monday evening in NE Portland
It has become an entrenched trend: corporations approach government officials and demand tax breaks, threatening to abandon the city, state or country if the politicians are not forthcoming.
The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing self-determination and creativity. Putting the horse before the cart, creating jobs that pay into social security, the deficit will gradually decline (American Prospect). Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people!
Access could replace excess; enough could replace more!
An open letter to Whole Foods from an anonymous shoplifter.
Corporate executives want students drilled for business needs, but refuse to pay taxes needed to support education. And they want students to shoulder the burden of tuition although they, and society as a whole, benefit from an educated workforce.
Giving the general population x-amount of money would certainly give the economy the boost that it needs instead of going to the bankers. More importantly, however, is for people to have faith in the economy again and that their future is secure. What is going on at the moment, certainly in Europe, is that people fear the future and they fear whether they are going to be out of work tomorrow. If plenty of jobs could be created then the fear factor would be reduced and people would spend money, thus an automatic boost to the economy.
