* Mark Shuttleworth fighting against arrogant Reserve bank bureaucrats - for the little guy*
Way to go Mark!
'Exit charge' on the export of capital — which entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth has fought all the way to the Constitutional Court — is no longer in place

monetary policy is completely politicized at the expense of America's working class...If that weren't the case, why would Yellen be opposed to Fed audit?
Great article by Brittany Stepniak in Outsider Club. (Google it)
Some highlights:
At the end of the day, American capitalism does not need recycled political hacks like Jerome H. Powell or clueless school marms like Janet Yellen to thrive. If we need a Fed at all, it is the one designed by Carter Glass 100 years ago. That is, a “bankers bank” that was intended to provide standby liquidity at a penalty spread above the free market interest rate in consideration for good collateral originating from inventory and receivables in the real economy.
Under that arrangement, there would be no monetary central planning or pointless attempts to manage the level of GDP, the number of new jobs, the rate of housing starts, the fluctuations of the CPI or the amplitudes of the business cycle. There would also be no pegging of the money market rate, no helping hand for Wall Street gamblers, no cheap debt to enable profligate politicians to kick-the-can down the road indefinitely.
In short, what the nation really needs is not an “independent” Fed, but one that is shackled to a narrow and market-driven liquidity function. The rest of its current remit is nothing more than the self-serving aggrandizement of the apparatchiks who run it; and who have now managed to turn the nation’s vital money and capital markets into dangerous, unstable casinos, and the nations savers into indentured servants of a bloated and wasteful banking system.
Amen, Mr. Stockman. Amen.

Hackers at work on our CACH  website
Our anti-hunting NGO Campaign Against Canned Hunting is apparently being taken seriously by the hunting industry, judging from the increasing cyber attacks on our website.
Here is the latest insult, when someone tries to access our website www.cannedlion.org
How does one fight back at this kind of hacking?  Our website is number one on Google Search on relevant keywords, and gets between 1000 and 8000 hits a day.

PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising on a platform like Google AdWords can be challenging to get right even for experienced advertisers - and a monumental waste of money for beginners.
