FDRs War Department made it clear that if war was truly inevitable, it would prefer that Japan commit the first overt act. Less than two weeks later, FDRs wish was granted.

Since its next to impossible to get Obama to understand an investment policy or a foreign policy-- without a crony attached to it-- I'm hoping we'll have a little more luck with Republicans.

Mike Shedlock | November 26, 2014

Overall impact on the CPI will at best be subdued, especially if wages do not follow. If more money goes for rent and Obamacare, less money will go elsewhere.

Charles Payne | November 26, 2014

The spread of wealth or income inequality dominates the political scene around the world (see Hong Kong or ask Mitt Romney) and Ferguson will be a major part the conversation during the 2016 election.

Daniel J. Mitchell | November 26, 2014

I generally focus on the profligate habits and abusive tactics of the federal government in Washington, but that doesnt mean other levels of government are well behaved.

Nick Sorrentino | November 26, 2014

Yeah thats what I want. Please tax me more. Please make it harder for me to start a business. Please make it even harder for me to hire someone. Please mess up the healthcare system even more...

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | November 26, 2014

I'm a fan because I believe that charitable giving can be an important part of just about everyone's life.

Dr. Ben Carson | November 26, 2014

Like millions of other Americans, I appreciate the plight of billions of people throughout the world who would like nothing more than to find themselves in the United States, where they could enjoy a much higher standard of living and wonderful opportunities for advancement.

D.W. Wilber | November 26, 2014

Could it be that Governor Nixon was experiencing the Benghazi Effect? Or was Nixon just frozen into inaction by indecision and incompetence?

Bill Tatro | November 26, 2014

Why, if the government continues to manipulate the numbers doesnt it just get to the point?

Heidi Harris | November 26, 2014

Every day theres another story about women who have been raped, or claim to have been raped, by famous and not so famous people. Most men are dumfounded by the women who have kept silent. If she was really RAPED, why didnt she go to the police and report it THEN?

The self-righteous indignation of liberals was on full display last night, as the Grand Jury announced their decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the death of Michael Brown.

John Ransom | November 25, 2014

As we witness Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel resign as the whipping boy for the administration, no Secretary of Defense could have executed the policy prescriptions of Obama who somehow confused withdrawing our successful army from Iraq with actual peace.

Mike Shedlock | November 25, 2014

A New York Fed research paper says "it's a mystery" why the housing recovery did not have a bigger impact on millennials living at home.

Charles Payne | November 25, 2014

It's easy to blame the system or capitalism for widening income inequality and other ailments of the economy, but it's also a luxury to protest on a full stomach.

Daniel J. Mitchell | November 25, 2014

Since Ive accused the Congressional Budget Office of witch doctor economics and gypsy forecasting, its obvious Im not a big fan of the organizations approach to fiscal analysis.

Nick Sorrentino | November 25, 2014

If the president doesnt have to faithfully execute the law on immigration (he does, the Constitution expressly says that he does) why should a future president have to execute the law faithfully in all sorts of other areas including taxes?

D.W. Wilber | November 25, 2014

Never one to shy away from controversy, extreme liberal and noted anti-gun activist Rosie ODonnell, host of the daytime TV show The View, recently discussed the Michael Brown case out of Ferguson, Missouri. ODonnell said, I as an American feel its very wrong to shoot unarmed teenagers six times, once in the head.

Peter Schiff | November 25, 2014

I had always placed a great deal of faith in Switzerland's financial markets. In recent years, however, as the Swiss government has sought to hitch its wagon to the flailing euro currency and kowtow increasingly to U.S.-based financial requirements, this faith has been shaken.

Ralph Benko | November 25, 2014

The current Executive Action is called by its adversaries amnesty. In fact, it represents a temporary reprieve rather than a pardon, more likely to confound rather than promote a humane resolution. It is highly likely to cause a backlash against durable immigration reform.

The World Bank, which last time I checked was a BANK, not a scientist, says that global warming could significantly worsen intra- and intergenerational poverty in multiple regions across the globe."

Mike Shedlock | November 24, 2014

One really has to wonder about what is in these central banker's heads

Shawn Mitchell | November 24, 2014

Republicans need to show their base and all America they will oppose lawless overreach; they need to avoid sounding mean spirited toward Latinos and worsening that growing electoral gap; and GOP leaders appear terrified of being accused of shutting down the government.

Doug Fabian | November 24, 2014

As I also mentioned in last weeks issue, Chinas equity markets are poised to never be the same again, as China just launched whats called the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect program.

Peter Morici | November 24, 2014

The constitution does not provide white Americans with a remedy when a president by-passes congress and abuses executive power to satisfy a constituency that puts its agenda above the rule of law.

Daniel J. Mitchell | November 24, 2014

Consider the way a select handful of big companies use the Export-Import Bank to obtain undeserved profits.

Michael Schaus | November 24, 2014

If prior years are any indication of the groups projected success this year, we can expect a handful of union thugs showing up at a handful of Walmart stores, with a few mass-printed signs. The rest of America, however, will be buying discounted flat screens.
