The Top 1%The rules of economic globalization are likewise designed to benefit the rich: they encourage competition among countries for business, which drives down taxes on corporations, weakens health and environmental protections, and undermines what used to be viewed as the “core” labor rights, which include the right to collective bargaining. Imagine what the world might look like if the rules were designed instead to encourage competition among countries for workers. Governments would compete in providing economic security, low taxes on ordinary wage earners, good education, and a clean environment—things workers care about. But the top 1 percent don’t need to care.

Thanks Jerry, well as you know Today was Puppy love at the Park day and boy what a turnout even in this sweltering heat that has been so relentless these past few days.

Wimbledon starts Monday
And this kid McIlroy smashing at the US Open! Yeah! Alright. Was watching the Rockets-Knicks in Game 5 of the 1994 NBA Finals on ESPN Classic earlier, those were the days. The atmosphere was electric, so electric.
Anyway, speaking of electric, have you seen this game/series on PS3 called 'Infamous'???? I guess I been living under a rock, I played the Infamous 2 demo earlier for a few hours couldn't put it down, you can't!!! First time I ever heard of or played this series and oh shittttt!!!! What a fucking insane game, The dude is like an electric menace!! Beasting the whole city!! Tossing cars around, blowing shit up, smashing buildings, messing up the whole city, the best fucking game, incredible fun. Fun. I actually don't know yet why he is all electric and firing electric balls of energy at people, cars, garbage dumpsters and whatever else. I skipped most of the cutscenes and just went in commando style, for a more relaxed, comforting release of testosterone. And then I played the game which was an incredible experience. It has the GTA aspect to it, just running around blowing shit up, I need to get GTA on PS3.
So now i'm downloading the original 'Infamous', a free PS3 game as part of their 'Welcome Back' promotion. Sony is offering 5 games of which you can choose 2 of them to download, for free. The first game I downloaded was 'Dead Nation', killing zombies and those types of things. It's sort of a like an extremely glorified version of 'Black Ops Arcade' on COD Blops. Out of the 5 games to choose from, i'm sure a vast majority of PS3 owners are getting or have gotten 'Infamous' and 'Dead Nation' so i'm droning on with those mofos. I was late to this 'Welcome Back' party I think. I believe it started at the beginning of June. Which goes to show how most people are more in tune to these things than I am. As well it should be because y'o they are little kiddies running around blindly into things.
I was walking outside and noticed this rainbow reflection effect on a speed limit sign across the street. Gotta love the early morning daybreak this time of year. The moon so asplendent, thy arising from thee yore of an deep dark slumber. Birds singing and dancing yeah, you should be dancin' yeah do do do, you should be dancin' yeah, ok.

Former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, 5 years in exile in Dubai, has entrusted his youngest sister Yingluck Shinawatra to lead the Pheu Thai party to victory for the Thailand people on July 3rd!
Promises of financial relief:
Ms. Yingluck’s stump speech consists of a series of applause lines emphasizing the populist programs that earned Mr. Thaksin the devotion of the country’s poor: cheap health care, a debt moratorium, a minimum wage increase, a price guarantee for rice, funds for village governments, welfare for the elderly and special credit cards to reduce costs for farmers.
“Not only lowering the cost of living, but putting money in your pocket — that’s what Pheu Thai will do,” she told the crowd here in Nakhon Phanom last week. “Do you like our policies?”
The incumbent Democrat Party is fighting back with promises of its own, including a 25 percent increase in the minimum wage.
Tempered by the Central Bank:
The central bank has warned that the expensive populism of both parties could strain the economy and spur inflation.
But what about all them goodies?
