In light of the enormous discrepancy between the Household Survey and the Establishment Survey in last Friday's jobs report, I thought it might be worthwhile to revisit the discrepancy between Gallup and the BLS that I have talked about before.
The minimum wage debate has gone from irresponsible to obscene. Now, there is chatter out of California that they will hike their minimum wage to as much as $26 an hour.

Last week’s news that China’s economy is set to overtake the U.S. economy in size by the end of this year was greeted with a collective yawn by the U.S. financial press. It’s easy to see why. China bulls have had a rough five years.
I doubt that very many market mavens thought that Egypt would be the best-performing sector in the market through the first third of the year, but that’s what’s happened. I also doubt that many had selected gold mining stocks as potential big winners.

Mainstream media is using globalchange.gov's latest position paper as more thin scientific evidence-- and I use the term sarcastically-- that global warming is already causing great harm to the United States. The rest of us, they believe, are just too stupid to know it without a website.
Remember the “LA Handshake”? Well, politicians do… And they all seem to be conning their way to the next political office. Justin Richards, political director for the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee, joined the show to talk about the importance of local politics.
When the White House, in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the fearless private watchdog group Judicial Watch, turned over an email about constructing the appropriate narrative response to the tragedy at Benghazi written by Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser to President Obama, and investigators from the House of Representatives realized that they had subpoenaed that email and not received it...
Yeah, I get it: no-one enjoys the prospect of 40 plus hours per week of the “daily grind”. (For those of you who are liberal, unemployed, or French, the “daily grind” refers to “work”.) But, c’mon… When did we start knocking hard work in this country?
The World Health Organization (WHO) said today that Pakistan's failure to stem the spread of polio has triggered a global health emergency. The WHO is recommending all residents must show proof of vaccination before they can leave the country.
Hey, Janet Yellen, that’s the problem with irresponsible monetary policy: It gets difficult to wind it down without spooking the market.

Dmitry Peskov, President Putin's spokesman, said Russia's government had received thousands of calls since Friday from people in southeastern Ukraine. The callers described the situation as "horrendous" and pleaded for Russia's involvement.
Why should it surprise us that "Progressives" are harkening back to technology of the past to foist bikes on a people who already rejected them? As? I noted yesterday, this is the same group of progressive who use wood as a renewable fuel, the same fuel used by Cro-Magnon Man.

Let's not call it a war, let's call it a a "punitive operation".
Were I running for Congress or the United States Senate, my platform would be to amend every piece of legislation with the final words: “All portions of the above legislation shall apply equally to the government of the United States of America and its employees."
While winter weather disrupted a portion of the nation's economy for a short period during 2014-Q1, primarily in the northeast and upper midwest regions of the country, the real primary cause of the low economic growth recorded in the first quarter of 2014 is the outcome of the Fed's decision to begin tapering its Quantitative Easing program and its effect in driving up long-term interest rates from their historic lows.
