"TED Refuses to Post Talk By Venture Capitalist Who Says Rich People Don't Create Jobs"  It is about time that somebody noticed what a steaming pile of bullshit TED really is.  But where will all the old white guys with pony tails talk?

"Israeli Leadership Hardens Stance, Plans Iran Attack"  In just-as-likely news, they also plan to build a synagogue on the surface of the sun.  The point of 'Iran talk' is to:
  1. prove to themselves they can still push the American government around (even as that power is weakening);
  2. swagger around as military dictatorships tend to do;
  3. pretend they can actually do something to protect Israeli citizens from the phony threat they can't stop talking about; and
  4. divert attention from the Palestinians.
"Much to Answer For: James Q. Wilson’s Legacy" He gave the fascists and racists a very thin veneer of intellectual respectability so they could do what they wanted to do anyway.

"Is U.S. going above and beyond for Israel?"

"Turkish jets stop 'Israeli violation' of airspace"  Weird timing, especially as Turkey is doing much of the leg-work in destabilizing Syria.
