In 1820, 94 percent of the world’s population lived in extreme poverty. In 1990, 34.8 percent, and in 2015, just 9.6 percent.

The speed of poverty alleviation in the last 25 years has been historically unprecedented. Not only is the proportion of people in poverty at a record low, but, in spite of adding 2 billion to the planet’s population, the overall number of people living in extreme poverty has fallen too.

Special Interests and the Internment of Japanese-Americans During World War II | Melody Hill, Steven B. Caudill

Professor Caudill teaches economics at Auburn University and Ms. Hill is an undergraduate student.

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, approving the en masse relocation of Japanese and Japanese-American citizens from the West Coast into the interior of the country. The order was signed amid the hysteria following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The reason given at the time for the evacuation was concern about espionage, or so-called “fifth-column,” activities of Japanese and Japanese-Americans on the Coast. But according to the government’s own intelligence service, this concern over espionage was misplaced. That is, concern for national security was not the true reason for interning Japanese and Japanese-Americans during World War II. Instead, this internment was motivated by nothing other than interest-group politics.

When war erupted in Europe, FDR placed J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI in charge of the nation’s internal security. Before the attack on Pearl, the FBI and Naval Intelligence maintained lists of alien suspects. Though the lists contained 250 to 300 suspects, only 40 or 50 were considered real threats.[1 ] Within two days of the attack on Pearl Harbor, all of the suspects and many others were detained. The FBI contended that these measures adequately controlled any threat of espionage, and that the relocation of Japanese and Japanese-Americans was unnecessary.[2 ] As additional evidence that security was not the reason for the internment, note that no mass detainment of people of Japanese ancestry occurred in Hawaii, which is closer to Japan and home to many Japanese and Japanese-Americans. In Hawaii, only suspect Japanese individuals were incarcerated. If espionage was not the reason for the evacuation in California, what was the reason? The answer: special-intere...

The Irrelevance of That “3 Billionaires Have More Wealth Than Half of America” Factoid | Daniel C. Jensen

Maybe Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet have more wealth than all of the infants, children, students, handicapped, prisoners, and postgrads combined. But you don’t need a PhD to figure out that’s not useful knowledge.

Major financial news outlets like Institutional Investor and Fox Business quoted it. But they shouldn’t have. If you know a couple of basic facts about the United States population, you know it's not worth quoting. It might be a fact, but it's so meaningless that it’s actually deceitful.

The first step to stopping this process lies in reading, understanding, and applying the Constitution of the United States.

This means, first and foremost, placing the legislative function in the hands of Congress alone and taking seriously Article One, Section Eight.

The government that governs least is the government that governs best!
Kobe's letter to my younger self.
I'm an independent pharmacy owner and have been following you all for years. We all know healthcare is one giant mess of government intervention and crony capitalism. I'd love it if you would look into the middle-men called pharmacy benefit managers. They handle about 90% of pharmacy claims between three companies. OptumRx owned by United Healthcare, CVS Caremark, and Express Scripts owned by Cigna. I have my thoughts on them, but curious if you have any insights into their impact on the healthcare market.
Agree,
I hope FEE re-posts the classic (in my view) Christmas poem by Sarah Skwire, "How the Grinch Stole the Free Market."
The governing class is interested in the immediate multiplication of employments open to its members. It wants to remunerate these officials at the best possible rate. A State of War gives it an unlimited power of disposition over the lives and goods of the majority. But the majority of the nation, the governed class, pays for the officials, and its only desire is to support the least necessary number. (I would apply this way of thinking to our current “war” being fought against plant food, a.k.a. carbon dioxide).
Once the premise is accepted that poverty is never the fault of the poor but the fault of “society” or of “the capitalist system,” then there is no definable limit to be set on relief. Politicians who want to be elected or reelected will compete with each other in proposing new “welfare” programs to fill some hitherto “unmet need,” or in proposing to increase the benefits or reduce the eligibility requirements of some existing program.
Do this Now
Pardon the from-nowhere of a stranger, friends, but given what I have seen of your group so far (and parts of what I am seeing discussed), there's no chance you might be interested in involving yourself in an aspiring (just-beginning) film-television entertainment company looking to Make Entertainment Great Again, is there? DOOMED SCHOLAR STUDIOS; just getting started, and not really getting anywhere yet. Looking to get people involved, and hopefully make television and movies that will NOT make 'social justice messaging' 'the center' of its productions. All I want to do is make good entertainment, and find people interested in helping me do it. God knows, MEGA certainly doesn't work as well as MAGA, but making our entertainment industry something great again would certainly help Make America Great Again. -Allan Yoskowitz ([email protected])

STOP TRUMP’S REIGN: MAKE AMERICA SHINE AGAIN -LET'S GET A DECENT PERSON IN THE WHITE HOUSE - JOE BIDEN May 2019, revised thru Sept 21, 2019 .......... Sept 24 MEMO re: IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY: It's about time they started the process. Remember, there are maybe 100 impeachable offenses before the Ukraine issue; this is just the last straw. The rest of this article remains the same. PART 1 – TRUMP AS A DANGER TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY Key points: (1.) Trump has committed serious crimes, including tax evasion and money laundering from Russian sources, which relates to why and how he has conducted foreign policy as a TRAITOR and Russian asset, endangering our national security. (2) He has ignored his oath of office by failing to protect and defend the Constitution and American interests. He has abused his powers and been in rampant violation of the Constitution and committed many impeachable offenses. (3) He has governed for his own personal and political interests and not that of our country. (4.) Don’t vote for a TRAITOR and DESPOT just because we have a low “unemployment rate”. Millions of people can’t find a job or one which pays a living wage, or only find work part time or as a temp but aren’t counted in the unemployment statistics, due to antiquated methods of count. Further, the working masses are faced with healthcare, housing and education costs rising faster than wages. (5) Another four years of Trump packing the courts with conservative judges would grow his power and leave the Congress with little power, allowing Trump to act increasingly as a dictator ignoring the Constitution and the freedoms of all of us. (6) Trump is trying to destroy the pre-existing conditions guarantees we need as a healthcare safety net, This would endanger lives. He is supported in this and almost all things by Republican sycophants in the Senate. (7) He is mentally unbalanced: hot-headed and putting us at risk of war; supportive of dictators and critical of NATO, unable to keep a Cabinet or other staff, incompetent generally to run the government, a racist demagogue and a chronic liar. (8) Trump and his Republican party are waging 'War on Women' and suppressing voter rights. This alone should enrage more than half the population. Trump wants to Reign as a King! (9) Trump's immigration ploy is his ultimate con job in that Republicans have for many years enabled illegal immigration to keep wages down on the backs of the very people who are now ironically his "base"- a modern day version of the Trojan horse as he victimizes his supporters by fighting to destroy healthcare, harming the working and middle classes, consumers and farmers with tariffs and lowering taxes on only the wealthy. (10) Trump displays a virulent racism, sowing hate and domestic terrorism, and has blood on his hands in consequence of his words and actions As Americans we have to face that he is a danger to our American heritage and must be impeached or otherwise voted out of office in 2020- along with his Republican apologists. (11). Our growing national deficit of over a trillion dollars approximates the tax giveaway he signed for the wealthy elite, meaning that the rest of us are subsidizing the wealthy and giving up infrastructure, education, environmental protection and healthcare for their sake. (12) Trump by his daily behavior is no doubt mentally ill- a "TWEETY-BIRD" ready for the funny farm. If he was an ordinary executive or teacher or whatever - he would be deemed deranged and fired : ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 2- BIDEN IS BEST to DEFEAT TRUMP Biden has the best chance by far to defeat Trump. Certainly he can win over the working class white voters who comprise most of Trump’s base. He can also get crossover endorsements from moderate Republicans and as President work with Republicans in the Senate, having been a respected Senator for 36 years. As Vice President for eight years, he worked closely with President Obama, who entrusted him with serious tasks, unlike Trump’s prop Pence. Biden can be tough and effective in debates against Trump. None of the other Democratic primary candidates have the status or experience of Biden, who can get funding and support from Democrats across the board. Biden is also well known and respected among world leaders and is the best person to repair the damage Trump has done to our international standing. He will be able to counter Russian transgressions into our democracy. Biden is a rational person who will govern as the Constitution and the rule of law requires, and not as a tyrant like Trump. Biden also has the ability to run the government efficiently and to unify the nation and heal the wounds that Trump created and exploited. We must unify as an electorate and ensure that an honorable and competent President will be elected in 2020. In short, if we have 20-20 vision, Biden is our best bet. Biden has compassion and character. Compare that to Trump's ruthlessness, greed and truckload of lies. Remember, we have one champion to choose in the big battle for the White House. We should choose a contender who can win. PART 3- DEMOCRATS MUST NOT FORFEIT THE WHITE HOUSE WITH A WISHFUL PRIMARY CHOICE. In all likelihood, as I write this, Elizabeth Warren is Biden’s main contender for the Democratic nomination. If she became the Democratic candidate she would be crushed by Trump. That is because, although she has active support from the progressive wing of the Democratic party, that is only a small part of the electorate. The electorate can be roughly divided into three thirds. One third is for Trump regardless; one third is for a Democrat regardless; and one third is up for grabs. That middle third is somewhat moderate and pragmatic and would favor Biden but won’t vote for Warren. She is too “pie in the sky” with her expensive wish list which would raise taxes on everyone and never get support in Congress anyway. For example, most voters want to allow private medical insurance to exist while having a government public medical insurance option and a guarantee on pre-existing conditions (Biden’s plan) but forcing medicare ONLY (Warren’s plan)- would raise taxes and even bankrupt the country. Let’s get real. Biden can win because people know he has common sense, can get wide support and get things done. Like winning the White House back and saving the country from Trump trauma.
