Lion Farming in SA
Go to places like Moreson if you want to pet a lion cub before it grows up and gets shot.
Canned hunting is a fast-growing business in South Africa, where thousands of lions are being bred on farms to be shot by wealthy foreign trophy-hunters, writes Patrick Barkham

It makes me realise how interconnected we all are.  And that animals belong to the whole wide world, not just a separate country or people.  Therefore its the whole wide world's responsibility to roar out.

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.

* 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
