President Elect Barak Obama

It was a fun election.

WASHINGTON (AP) — His lease renewed in trying economic times, President Barack Obama claimed a second term from an incredibly divided electorate and immediately braced for daunting challenges and progress that comes only in fits and starts.

“We have fought our way back and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America, the best is yet to come,” Obama said.

Obama – Romney debate talking about Horses and Bayonets

That was a hilarious retort and comeback from Obama. I mean I started to laugh out loud.

Monday night’s final presidential debate didn’t break any social-media records—but it did provide what many on Twitter felt was a delightfully ridiculous moment.

Total Twitter activity around the debate was the lowest of the three presidential debates, with 6.5 million tweets over the course of 90 minutes. (The first debate saw 10.3 million tweets, while the second saw 7.2 million.) The most tweeted moment was President Barack Obama’s retort to Romney’s attack about the decreasing size of the U.S. military: “We also have fewer horses and bayonets,” Obama said.
The campaigns were paying attention: After the debate, the Romney campaign purchased the promoted tweet for the hashtag #horsesandbayonets while the Obama campaign purchased the promoted tweet around searches for “bayonets.”

We have always lived in the age of Central Banks, to thing otherwise is naive. In fact banks bave been major players in the economies of the world and government decisions since money lending came into play and banks started borrowing money in order to finance their wars.

Mitt Romney said Thursday night that, if elected president, he would create millions of jobs. On Friday morning, the Federal Reserve chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, said that the Fed’s policies may have helped create millions of jobs since the financial crisis.

 So who actually has the most power to create jobs today – the president, or the Fed chairman? The answer to that question tells us whether we now live in the age of democracy, or the age of the central bank.

Paul Ryan Anti Wall Street ?

Looks can be deceiving. But in the end this is only fodder for the voters. We all know that politics is a just like a soap opera and a popularity contest with no real substance.   He could be mistaken for a Wall Street banker. Or perhaps a hedge fund manager. Or even a managing director at a private equity firm, like Bain Capital.
Paul Ryan, with his clean-cut Brooks Brothers looks and wonky obsession with spreadsheets, could be just the archetype of a Wall Streeter.
Mitt Romney’s new running mate even trades stocks in his spare time. He’s a fan of the nation’s blue chips: among the stocks he owns are AppleExxon MobilGeneral ElectricI.B.M.Procter & GambleWells FargoGoogleMcDonald’sNike andBerkshire Hathaway, according to his latest disclosure filing.
Mr. Ryan is a disciple of Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman, two figures long associated with free markets.
And he has the support of some powerful backers in finance: his top donors include employees of Wells Fargo, UBSGoldman Sachs and Bank of America. For his 2012 Congressional race, he raised about $179,000 from securities professionals (not a large sum, but certainly thesingle largest sector that donated money to his campaign).

Romney: Ryan is ‘next president of the United States’ | The Ticket – Yahoo! News.

Pretty funny. But that was no mistake.

Perhaps channeling the fervent wishes of conservatives, Mitt Romney on Saturday introduced running mate Paul Ryan as “the next president of the United States.” UPDATE: This may actually be a very, very good omen for the Republican ticket.

“I would like you to join me in welcoming the next president of the United States, Paul Ryan!” Romney told a fired-up crowd in Norfolk, Virginia.
As Ryan took the stage to cheers and flag-waving, and settled in behind the podium for the biggest speech of his political life, Romney came back to make things right.
“Every now and then I’m known to make a mistake,” he said, to huge laughs from the supportive audience. “I did not make a mistake with this guy. But I can tell you this, he’s going to be the next vice president of the United States.”

Super-rich stash $21 tn in offshore havens — RT

Nader Nazemi-21 Trillion Dollars Siphoned to Offshore Banks !

21 Trillion Dollars Siphoned to Offshore Banks !

Holy Crap ! This is beyond mind boggling. The Bankers and Uber-Rich are in cahoots ! So conspiracy theorists were right  all along. There is a small tiny elite that bankroll politicians, governments, coups, revolutions and the entire world. 21 Trillion Dollars is 5 trillion dollar more than the entire US GDP !!! 

Wealthy tax evaders, aided by private banks have exploited loopholes in tax legislation and stashed over $21 tn in offshore funds, says a report. The capital drained from some developing countries since 1970 would be enough to pay off national debts.

The findings show the gap between the haves and the have-nots is much larger than previously thought.

The document, entitled The Price of Offshore Revisited, was commissioned by The Tax Justice Network campaign group and leaked to the Guardian. The report provides the most detailed valuation of the offshore economy to date.

“The problem here is that the assets of these countries are held by a small number of wealthy individuals while the debts are shouldered by the ordinary people of these countries through their governments,” wrote James Henry, expert on tax havens and former chief economist at consultancy McKinsey in his report.

The document cites the world’s leading private banks as cherry-picking from the ranks of the uber-rich and siphoning their fortunes into tax-free havens such as Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

The wealth of the super-rich is “protected by a highly paid, industrious bevy of professional enablers in the private banking, legal, accounting and investment industries taking advantage of the increasingly borderless, frictionless global economy.”

Henry writes that a large part of the trillion dollar hoard belongs to around 92,000 individuals, an elite class of super-rich who make up 0.001 percent of the global population.

This is sad indeed for Ron Paul. A Great Man !

Ron Paul’s delegate insurgency has come to an end.

Supporters of the libertarian GOP presidential candidate fell short at the Nebraska GOP convention, where they had hoped to out-organize Mitt Romney‘s delegates and push Paul over a critical threshold that would have ensured him an official presence and speaking slot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.
