GM tries to block corporate jet tracking

General Motors has asked the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) not to allow tracking of its private jets.

I honestly doubt even Flint-Michigan's homegrown phenom, documentary movie maker Michael Moore, has the conscience to back the bailout of the auto industry.

It isn't even a bailout. This is extortion.

Economy warning from China leader

James Reynolds - BBC News, Beijing

China's President Hu Jintao has warned of the effects of the global financial crisis on his country.

And he warned that the economic situation was a test of the Communist Party's ability to govern.

Recent figures show that the government has cause to be worried.

[...] there's a widespread belief - even a superstition - in China that growth needs to stay above 7% in order for social stability to be maintained.

When bombs go off in India there is a tendency to blame Moslems.

However, the evidence points to the terror being the work of people within the Indian military, the Hindu fascist movement, and the CIA and its friends.

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a false flag terrorist attack

Naturally, Al Qaeda immediately rises to the top of the suspects list. The responsible group, however, has never been heard of before. Somehow these terrorist cells always miraculously escape intelligence and burst onto the scene completely unexpectedly. Which is weird, you know, that they're so good at avoiding surveillance but yet they suck at the nuts and bolts of carrying out an effective terrorist attack. Hmm.

The Fed: Solution or problem?

Before the Fed and big government, previous bank panics usually ended quickly without "bailouts" or "economic stimulus" programs. Given that the Fed, the Treasury and the Congress are obviously confused about what to do in the current situation, history indicates that perhaps the least harmful course of action is for them to do nothing.

Obama's Economic Team: More of the Wrong People

So here we are. One of the economic "experts" who praised the misguided policies that generated the housing bubble now is to be a leading "player" is supposedly getting us out of the current economic crisis.

Romania Government Debt Bonds Rated "Junk"

Crisis hits Romania at poll time
Vlad Georgescu - Business reporter, BBC News

Not too long ago it was riding the wave of Eastern Europe's economic boom. With 8% annual growth, Romania - one of the newest members of the European Union - was the envy of Old Europe, seemingly impervious to the global economic decline.

In recent weeks, Fitch and Standard and Poor's credit agencies cut Romania's rating to "junk", worried by its large current account deficit and reliance on short-term borrowing.

Obama has a hand on the helm weeks before taking oath of office
The Kansas City Star

So much for that one-president-at-a-time stuff.

Three news conferences in three days. The outline of a $500 billion — or more — stimulus package. Bailouts for carmakers, banks, maybe cities and states, under discussion.

Press, "Psy Ops" to merge at NATO Afghan HQ

Press and "Psy Ops" to merge at NATO Afghan HQ: sources

By Jon Hemming Jon Hemming – 40 mins ago

KABUL (Reuters) – The U.S. general commanding NATO forces in Afghanistan has ordered a merger of the office that releases news with "Psy Ops," which deals with propaganda, a move that goes against the alliance's policy, three officials said.

The move has worried Washington's European NATO allies -- Germany has already threatened to pull out of media operations in Afghanistan -- and the officials said it could undermine the credibility of information released to the public.

CEOs “cashed out” prior to economic crisis

By Tom Eley
28 November 2008

Balzac’s maxim that “behind every great fortune lies a great crime” may yet prove a fitting epitaph for American capitalism. A recent survey by the Wall Street Journal reveals that CEOs at major US financial and real estate firms converted tens of millions of dollars of overvalued stock into cash prior to the eruption of the current financial crisis, even as many of their corporations approached the precipice.

Blu-ray uptake could be stalled by recession

BLU-Ray won the format wars, but it hasn't taken off – and now there are fears a recession could stall its progress even further.

A scarcity of cheap Blu-ray video players combined with the effects of a recession are expected to delay take-up of the new, high-definition disc format in Europe, according to media research firm Screen Digest.

"A shortage of cheaper Blu-ray players means that the sub-$US300 ($465) machines that are already appearing on US shelves are unlikely to materialize in Europe this Christmas," Screen Digest analyst Richard Cooper said in a report.

Water vapour discovered on Saturn's moon

Huge plumes of water vapour and ice particles are bursting out from Saturn's moon Enceladus at supersonic speeds in a way that strongly suggests they come from liquid water down below the icy surface, scientists have said.

The research, published in the journal Nature, offers new evidence that the moon may harbor an underground ocean of water, meaning conditions might exist that could support life, even if only microbial organisms.
