Holder Backs Suit in New York Faulting Legal Service for Poor (Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye)- Justice for the poor? Great idea. Let’s get some of that for those whose lives were ended by a gun Eric Holder placed into their killer’s hand.

Fed: US consumers have decided to ‘hoard money’

One of the great mysteries of the post-financial crisis world is why the U.S. has lacked inflation despite all the money being pumped into the economy.

The St. Louis Federal Reserve thinks it has the answer: A paper the central bank branch published this week blames the low level of money movement in large part on consumers and their “willingness to hoard money.”

The only great mystery involved with this notion that we are in a low inflationary period is why the myth persists despite all the evidence our grocery bills post to the contrary. The Fed, however, may be partially correct but not at all in the particulars. Savings does not amount to hoarding as the money in those accounts is constantly being invested and reinvested by way of providing capital to banks making loans. What does amount to hoarding is 80 billion dollars a month being created and then placed into the non consumer economy. To be sure inflation would be far worse were those funds directly injected into the general money supply. And that is something we will likely find out when the bubble bursts and we are all told that “nobody could possibly have seen this coming”.

NASA Climate Scientist Explains 15-Year ‘Global Warming Hiatus’: Too late. This expert already had the chance to establish credibility by predicting the event. Failure to do that confirms what we’ve always known. Their forecasts are never right and we would be monsters to implement the policies of death and destruction demanded by these cargo cult cretins.

Federal Agents Arrest Gun-Carrying Illegal Immigrant: Come on, we should give this guy the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he just found one of Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious guns and was trying to return it for a reward.

Congress Rebukes SEC Investigation into Insider Trading: Apparently people in Congress, and those working for people in Congress, are up to the old trick of making money off of stock market fluctuations brought about by legislative intervention. Now there are two ways to deal with this problem. The first is to regulate the system and hope there is a full two week period in which no bypass to the regulation is formulated. The second is to cure the disease of business in politics by curing the even greater disease of politics in business. Fortunately there is no additional legislation needed for that cure. The founders provided it for us in Section Eight of Article One and all that is now required of us is to observe it. (H/T PoppaJoe49, thanks!)

Clashes in Paris as thousands march against Israel offensive

The crowd, very young, shouted slogans such as: “We Are All Palestinians!” and “Only One Solution, End the Occupation!”.

Madmen in Paris calling for a final solution. Now why does that sound familiar?

Huffpo: How Hobby Lobby Undermines All Americans’ Freedom. It undermines our freedom in the most insidious of ways. By affirming that, in some very small number of cases, the rights of a few individuals to not have to buy abortoswag for a larger number of individuals shall not be infringed.

George Takei: What if Hobby Lobby was run by Muslims imposing Sharia law on workers? Then we should find it nearly so intolerable as a health care law that seeks to nationalize our bodies and all choices associated with them. We say nearly so because in the case of the former compliance could be discontinued at will with no further threat against liberty or property.

Thad Cochran “Wins” a Race He Mulled Not Running

The question seemed to tug at Senator Thad Cochran throughout his bumpy re-election campaign in Mississippi: Why, after a long, distinguished career — 42 years in Congress, including six terms in the Senate — was he seeking a seventh term?

Umm, so he could retire mid-term and have Haley Barbour’s son appointed to the position?

Childers, Cochran in dead heat among GOP voters in Chism poll. It looks like quite a lot of Republicans are wondering why, if Democrats can vote for a RINO in the primary, they shouldn’t vote for a blue dog in the general. And you know the Cochran machine can’t be happy about that.

Video: And now, a spectacular political ad from a conservative in Alabama: After the dirty tricks they pulled this week the GOP isn’t worthy of a candidate that seems this awesome.
