Holy Shroud of Turin

Breaking News: Obama recognizes Syrian opposition ~ link ~ Like most things in the mostly globalist ruled world, this is a mixture of crap, sad behavior, and tragedy-in-the-making!!!   Stirling     
The US has formally recognised Syria's opposition rebel coalition as the sole "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people, says President Obama. Speaking to ABC News in the US, Mr Obama said the coalition was now "inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough". He described the move - already made by the UK and the EU - as "a big step".

Egypt crisis: Morsi supporters and his opponents rally - with video ~ link ~ Thousands of demonstrators in the Egyptian capital Cairo have joined rival rallies as emotions run high ahead of a planned referendum. The opposition breached a barrier outside the presidential palace but there was no violence. 

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti resigns ~ link ~ He can go back to being a banker now...actually he was ALWAYS a banker serving the interests of the global banksters.    Stirling    

The immediate reason for Monti’s resignation is the withdrawal of support by Silvio Berlusconi’s party Popolo della Liberta (PDL), whose parliamentary deputies had previously endorsed his government of technocrats. At the end of last week, they failed to support him in confidence votes in the Senate and lower house of parliament. At the same time, Berlusconi announced that he would again run for the post of prime minister in the coming election as the lead candidate of the PDL.

Berlusconi resigned as prime minister in November last year in the midst of a severe financial crisis and numerous scandals. As late as October, he had asserted that he would not stand again as the leading candidate of his party. Now he has justified his U-turn by claiming that Monti’s austerity policies, tax hikes and spending cuts had dragged Italy to the “edge of an abyss”.
Sorry Protesters: Your jobs are being sent to China and they aren't coming back ~ link

Did you see the huge crowds of protesters that flooded the Michigan Capitol on Tuesday?  They were there to protest two bills there were being considered by the state legislature that would limit the power of unions in the state.  Michigan lawmakers approved the bills and this absolutely infuriated the protesters.  There is a lot of passion on both sides of this debate, but I am afraid that both sides in this debate are missing the bigger picture.  If we keep shipping millions of our jobs to China, there isn't going to be work for anyone no matter how much power unions have or don't have.  During the month of October, the U.S. trade deficit increased to 42.2 billion dollars.  Our trade with China accounted for most of that deficit.  Our trade deficit with China in October increased to a new all-time one month record of 29.5 billion dollars.  Nearly 30 billion dollars that could have gone to U.S. businesses and U.S. workers went to China instead.  Since 1975, a total of about 8 trillion dollars that could have gone to U.S. businesses and U.S. workers went to the rest of the world instead.  Shiny new factories are going up all over China, and meanwhile our once great manufacturing cities are degenerating into desolate wastelands.  So what is going to happen when all of the good paying manufacturing jobs are gone?  Are we all going to fight bitterly over whether we should unionize the low paying jobs that remain at places such as Wal-Mart and McDonalds?  Such an approach is not going to bring back prosperity to America.  We desperately need to start building things and start creating real wealth inside this country once again.  We desperately need to stop sending tens of thousands of businesses, millions of jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth out of the country.  Unfortunately, I don't see anyone out there holding protests about our trade deficit.  Nobody really seems to care, so our economy will continue to bleed good jobs and the middle class will continue to be destroyed.
The funny thing is that the workers that are out there protesting these union bills actually voted for the politicians that are killing their jobs.  Both parties are married to the one world economic system and the "free trade" agenda, and Barack Obama has been one of the worst offenders.  He has been pushing for more "free trade agreements" throughout the past four years, and yet union workers continue to support him enthusiastically. How foolish can they possibly be?
