Denying science is a bad habit among conservatives of all stripes: Paul Broun, a Georgia Republican who sits on the House science committee (and who wants to run for the Senate), says evolution is a lie “straight from the pit of hell”. That’s pandering, not piety.
The Atlantic is mark on with this op-ed. From day one - high school really - I have squirmed in my seat at the thought of eating a McRib. I am not a rib eater for the most part anyways, so why would I spring for a reconstructed pork patty made to look like it has edible ribs (?).
"By contrast, there is no world in which pork spare ribs could be eaten straight through, even after having been slow cooked such that some of the cartilage breaks down. " - The Atlantic
This obviously leads to the chicken nuggets and how they are hardly chicken nuggets, but the main fact is that the McRib is a tad grosser and plays into our subconscious somehow, to some people. Not to mention, this seasonal monster is a success to the bottom line of an American corporation so iconic it parallels that of any other global brand. Is the McRib here to round out the menu?

Silver is a bigger 'problem' because CB's don't have any physical metal to "inject" into the market in order to maintain the confidence game.

This is where I find it too easy to get carried away. One quick look around the macro world reveals a host of potential shocks. This would fuel the need and opportunity to build short-term predictions about current events (rationalized with evermore sophisticated technical or trading indicators).
Interpreting the Whistleblower
The work of GATA and Ted Butler dovetail somewhat. GATA has exposed the reality and legal mechanism for intervention. Ted focuses mainly on the details of how that intervention manifests in the trading data.
In what appears to be a further attempt to censor the internet, Russia is reportedly building its own state-controlled search engine. The report comes from Russian newspaper Vedomosti, which claims that the search engine will be called Sputnik, and is being developed by state-owned telecom Rostelecom. It could potentially become the default search tool for government institutions. The telecom has reportedly invested more than $20 million in the project, and is attempting to lure talent from rival companies with hopes to launch the search engine early next year. However, even if the report is true, the search engine will likely have a tough time cracking the Russian market. Local company Yandex holds more than 60 percent market share in the country, with the likes of Google and other search engines filling out the rest. "With its lac…
