1. The Germans (and other European nations) are looking to enact an asset tax to balance their federal budget.
2. Research now shows that you become unemployable if you cannot find a job after 6 months of trying.
The article written about the research is titled:
The Terrifying Reality of Long-term Unemployment.
It is a Yahoo Finance article. Google it.
Everything NWP, and Dude have experienced is explained and supports their explanations of why they were not hired.
Sad, but true.
3.Iceland is now recognized as having handled things correctly in the financial crisis, and today voted for anti-EU candidates. So, it appears that they will stay out of the EU. Wise people, those Icelanders.
4. Senator Rand Paul has questioned the rules about drone strikes. Next step: Questioning everything.
5. On the Frontline documentary series (on PBS on last Monday- 4/22/2013), the corrupt 401K system was revealed In one mutual fund a person who saved/earned on investments $1,000,000, would only get out of the fund $330,000. The other $670,000 would go to fees, and expenses. This is legalized robbery.!!! Everyone here should watch this documentary, and also check your own 401K using a 401K calculator.
On the positive side: At least the truth is getting out about this corruption. That is something to be happy about.
