- It seems inevitable that a meltdown will happen at the main reactor in Japan. There’s now evidence surfacing that more than 30 years ago three people resigned or were transferred after complaining about the nuclear reactor design.
- As if Japan does not have enough going on. A 6.0 earthquake rocked the country just yesterday.
- The King in Bahrain has declared martial law. Look for Saudi Arabia to have a huge interest in what goes on in Bahrain. The Middle East is really starting to get ugly.
- The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has come up with six simple tests of any corporate tax reform. Seems to be pretty simple and straightforward. This means it will never be adopted.
- Budgets should never be balanced on the backs of state workers.
- Maine’s new governor is trying to pay for tax cuts by asking state workers to contribute more to their pensions. Now, where have we seen this before?
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Egypt. I’m not exactly sure what she’s doing in Egypt besides giving the reformers a pep talk. Look for more on this soon.
- Representative Dennis Kucinich continues to try to see Bradley Manning. He’s being blocked by the Department of Defense. I’m not sure how the Department of Defense has the legal authority to block a member of Congress from seeing a prisoner. Doesn’t sound kosher.
- NFL Players are considering a boycott of the draft. This is getting very ugly. $9 Billion to split between players and owners… and they can’t figure it out. Don’t look for football this September.
