The Ebola Virus - Save yourself by being a Real American

dagblog.com — Or take vaccines. Today, Big Pharma and its band of paid science monkeys say that multiple diseases and ailments have been wiped out due to childhood vaccines. But important Hollywood people like Rob Schneider - who was in the movie "Jack & Jill" - have stated that vaccines cause autism, mind control and various other ailments.

The Nobel Committee Takes on Corporate Power

esquire.com — Lately, Jean Tirole has been working to connect the dots between large financial institutions and indebted countries during financial crises. Here's what he's found: A negative feedback loop between bank balance sheets and the public coffers of their home countries has caused financial fragility.

Open Mikes: The Maiello-Orion Dialectic Strikes Again!

dagblog.com — Here is my latest dialectic with Michael Gural Maiello. I thought this one was a bit interesting because, unlike the others, we were in disagreement over something - this time being the debate between Ben Affleck and Bill Maher and Sam Harris over Islam, which got pretty heated.

dagblog.com — Where the incest and the punditry really connect, and this drives the point home better than I have ever seen in any blog, is on the point of accountability. Hunt is a writer, ever able to justify himself. The novel is, for the most part, presented as his unpublished manuscript.

Attack on ISIS (Watch Your Wallet)

dagblog.com — "If previous authoritarian regimes were three parts violence and one part propaganda," argues Igor Yakovenko, a professor of journalism at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, "this one is virtually all propaganda and relatively little violence. Putin only needs to make a few arrests-and then amplify the message through his total control of television."

Apple Fritters - Esquire

esquire.com — Next Tuesday Apple will (or won't) announce the iPhone 6, with its larger screen and other add-ons and maybe it will hint at the iWatch that will forever change the amount of undue attention you pay to your wrist. If Apple's stock price rises after the Tuesday announcements, CEO Tim Cook will receive accolades.

How Foreign Policy Non-Experts Think

dagblog.com — Now, all of the experts are surprised and say we have to go to war again. Some of them are comically arguing that ISIS rose to power because we didn't arm the right Syrian rebels a year ago (being an expert means never having to admit you're wrong, I guess).

Book Review: Sharp Knives, Sharp Stories

dagblog.com — There's a classic case with eyeglasses. You decide you're going to go shopping for a new pair of eyeglasses, and you go into Lenscrafters. You say, I don't like the prices here. So you go down the road to a place called Pearl Vision, you say, no, no I'm going to go to a cheaper place.
