Op-Ed: The Iran Nuclear Problem - Who's Kidding Who?

Everywhere you read it - Iran deserves to be blown of the face of the earth because of her dangerous nuclear capability. Israel continually promises a pre-emptive attack on Iran soon. But so far....nothing.

Op-Ed: Bernanke's Surreal Psychological Play

Many wonder what Bernanke is doing to bring the US economy back under control again. News of his actual "discretionary spending" policies is never exposed to the public. When known and understood, Bernanke's policies seem very surprising and desperate.

Philippines Journeyman - The Hundred Islands of Pangasinan

Now living in the Philippines, I usually take every opportunity to explore what is on offer here. And I'm usually not disappointed. I've included many photos in this travelogue, since pictures are always far better than words.

What are the differences between the European and American view of politics? Where does trust and patriotism end in terms of lifestyles? Are government freedoms rising alarmingly, while our individual freedoms are steadily and consistently being eroded?

Dollar Shock - Yuan to Become Asia's Regional Reserve Currency

The Yuan will soon replace the dollar as the new Asian Regional Reserve Currency. This confirms that China now will dump much of her trillions of dollars and Treasury Bills - a horrific switch for America with dangerous economic and US dollar impacts.

Op-Ed: Big Pharma - The Pallid Success of the Germ Theory
