What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for week or two of shamefully decadent fun.

Social Collapse Best Practices

Video and Transcript

The mid-1990s all sorts of silly things were happening. Professor Fukuyama told us that history had ended, and so we were building a brave new world where the Chinese made things out of plastic for us, the Indians provided customer support when these Chinese-made things broke, and we paid for it all just by flipping houses, pretending that they were worth a lot of money whereas they are really just useless bits of ticky-tacky.

Confidence is not built on inspiring oratory or personal charisma, but concrete actions to reestablish a rules-based system that penalizes crooks and fraudsters. Recovery isn't possible without a strong commitment to these basic changes.

John Yoo is sorry for nothing

by Gary Kamiya


Yoo has thrown down a challenge, a legal version of Bush’s ‘bring it on.’ If you chattering antiwar lefties read my memos, he is saying, you will be forced to recant your criticisms. This is a peculiar challenge, considering that Yoo’s memos have been completely discredited. Even the Bush administration’s Office of Legal Counsel eventually repudiated all of Yoo’s opinions (a fact that he somehow omitted in his Journal piece), and the legal community has overwhelmingly rejected his arguments. But to be fair to Yoo, I decided to read not just the newly released memos, but his 2003 torture memo. What I discovered is that Yoo is an even more contemptible hack than I had ever imagined.

Nick Turse, "The message is simple. Ever more Americans need food they can't afford. As tough economic times take their toll, increasing numbers of Americans are on tightened budgets and, in some cases, facing outright hunger. As a result, they may be learning a lot more about food banks and soup kitchens than most of them ever wanted to know. In recent interviews with, representatives from food banks - the non-profit organizations that distribute groceries to those in need via food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens - expressed alarm at the recent surge in need all across the country."
