Normandy Wall Drawing Says it All

This drawing is on a wall opposite the restaurant where we had lunch in Arromanches-les-Bains, which is a small village in Normandy. We visited the American military cemetery in Normandy, a sobering reminder of the more than 9,000 soldiers that are buried, including 3,000 unidentified young men, who died on D-Day or soon thereafter from their wounds. As Florence and I walked through the cemetery I could not help but wonder how many potential inventors, scientists and other creative young men died that day.

The Shakey Empire – LewRockwell

“David Stockman warns that the nation’s economy and a massive debt ceiling hangs in the balance as Wall Street’s peak bull stocks carry on. The economist is on a mission to send his new book TRUMPED! A Nation on the Brink of Ruin… and How to Bring It Back out to every American who responds, absolutely free. Click here for more details.] It’s all over now except the shouting about Obamacare repeal and replace, but that’s not the half of it.

Why universal basic income is gaining support, critics

Just because you are rich doesn’t mean you are smart.  

“The idea of a universal basic income — monthly cash payments from the government to every individual, working or not, with no strings attached — is gaining traction, thanks in part to endorsements from Silicon Valley celebs. Some see it as a way to compensate for the traditional jobs with benefits that will be wiped out by robotics, artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, globalization and the gig economy. Others see it as a way to reduce income inequality or to create a more efficient, less stigmatizing safety net than our current mishmash of welfare benefits.
