Digital Economy Bill latest - two cheers for the LibDem team

[Liberal Democrat Voice] Here we have a tidal wave of opposition to disconnection and zero debate on the matter, and Don is justifying a fiction that interference with internet connections, and therefore our free speech and other fundamental rights, after allegations of copyright infringement, could be “appropriate, proportionate and necessary in a democratic society”.

It's the Economy Stupid

[The Iowa Republican] Bill Clinton’s successful presidential campaign in 1992 is best known for the simple phrase, “It’s the economy stupid.” That simple slogan allowed an unknown southern governor who was plagued by sex scandals to knock off an incumbent President who had an approval rating in the nineties when the campaign began.

Gaza's tragically peculiar economy | MetaFilter

[MetaFilter] The main obstacle is the fact that demographic trends show the likelihood of a near-term majority Arab population west of the Jordan River (including the land within the internationally recognized borders of the state of Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza). The probability that Palestinians would constitute an electoral majority in a binational state is seen by many Israeli Jews as a threat to the very premise of Israel, which is imagined as a state for the Jews.

CARPE DIEM: One Nation Over Gas: A Gasified U.S. Economy

[CARPE DIEM] Displacement of oil by natural gas would strengthen a trend away from crude in rich countries, where the IEA believes demand has already peaked as a result of the recent spike in oil prices. Another consequence of the energy market’s bull run, the unearthing of vast new supplies of gas, could bring further upheaval.

[Work Wasters] China is theoretically a socialist economy, but has abandoned all the traits of a socialist state in order to accommodate its greed for a bigger pie of world trade. China has no regard for its poor farmers and contract labors, nor does it have any regard for the life of innocent newborns as the recent melamine episode has shown.

[Hot Air » Top Picks] Politically, the Democrats have the worst of all worlds.  Not only do they look out of touch for spending all of their efforts on a plan that is deeply unpopular with voters, they now are seen as actively damaging the economy.  The deficit spending alone would be enough to send voters heading for the exits, but the increased costs are even worse.  Seventy-eight percent of all respondents believe that middle-class tax increases will come as a result of ObamaCare, with almost two-thirds (65%) believing that to be “very likely.”  Fifty-eight percent of Democrats expect middle-class tax increases, which shows how effective Obama has been in selling this plan.
