Obama may well turn the USA into a banana republic with help from his clients and grantees in ACORN
Zimbabwean inflation soared to 231 million percent in July from 11.2 million percent a month earlier, the Herald reported, citing the Central Statistics Office.
Prices rose 1,760 percent in the month, mainly because of higher bread and cereal prices, the Harare-based newspaper said today. The government blames hyperinflation on sanctions imposed by western governments, it said.
Zimbabwe's economy has shrunk almost 50 percent in the last decade, the newspaper said.
Why not look on the bright side? Zimbabwe's economy is the fastest-growing in the world--in nominal terms.
There is always Hope and the Power of Now I suppose

A case comment from staff? is now a "LAW REVIEW ARTICLE?"
A 'lecturer' at University of Chicago is now a "PROFESSOR" and "COMMONLY REFERRED TO BY OTHER [sic] FACULTY MEMBERS AS 'PROFESSOR'" Pleaseeeeee!!!!
Thgat is one of the most protected and jealously guarded titles in America, it is never used casually, and a pretentious or false use of it, as here, is a subject or derision and status loss.
It is possible that it is different at Chicago, unlikely, where is the evidence, say, in U of Chicago's Law Review, its law school magazine, its press releases, etc. The formal U of C statement seems incredibe on its face, Richard Badger is a man of considerable reputation, capable of a good discussion, so, he deserves some deference, but where is the evidence that a 'lecturer' is a "PROFESSOR" anywhere?
Just another Obama lie, as in "didn't regulat;ly share ideas" with Bill Ayers, one of his key mentor, launching his campaign in Ayers' living roo, Obama's lies "Rezko had no role in helping me buy my house" but ater he admitted, he got a $300,000 price drop due to full price for adjacent property closing on same day through Rezko's WIFE, who was then apparenty paid back by M, Obama "fulfilling my lifetime dream to have a patio" [quote a paraphrase] because Mr. Rezko was already facing lega and financial problems from his slumlord activites with B, Obama.
Obama later ADMITTED he was "less than truthful" in an interview with board of editors of Chicago Tribune, when asked why he "lied": so to speak "because I wanted to control the narrative" at that time in his political career. In fact, Rezko even tortured the house with Obama before purchase! Chicago Tribune, about March 11 or 14, 2008, editorial page, upper left hand corner, per my memory
Rezko and Ayers appear to have roles RECRUITING Obama to Chicago as a front bag man. Not clear, and O won't say
Will Obama no go visit Reko at HIS house? Oh, yeah, that would be the Federal Pen or a holding cell in Chicago.
Probably just thrwo him under th bus, like Farakan ) O. helped with the Million Man March, is F. neighbor!) like his grandmother "typical white person" his pastor, his staff member who called Hillary a "monster" in Ireland, the aide who let out his lies to the Canadian consulate in Chicago about NAFTA ( admitting he was not really opposing Nafta in oriavte reassurance to Canada, then lying about conversations when they were revealed, I GUESS NOT KNOWING JUNIOR DIPLOMATS WRITE MEMOS CIRCUATED) etc. etc. etc.
He is superficialy, well spoken, as in a practiced cadence, and soft theater voice, but has trouble with core ideas "57 states" in America, thanking John McCain for "not attacking his Muslim faith"
,calling Sen, McCain, "John" "Jim" and "Tom" -- who makes mistakes like this? Is a syndrome, or lack of sleep, it has been a rough campaign, but these are really excessive.
Question Authority. Question Obama and his lawyer hit team.
