Elliot Spitzer Blows Chunks
This is the beginning of the end for the man who would be king. Mr. Elliot Spitzer loses big time and blows chunks. Elliot Spitzer's reputation is wiped out with a single case. One of his most celebrated cases in fact, as a Manhattan jury acquitted Bank of America's Ted Sihpol on 29 of 33 counts over the charges of grand larceny and fraud. He was accused of helping a hedge fund trade Mutual Fund shares after hours (4PM). The remaining accounts became a deadlock jury. He walks scott free since he committed no crimes.
It sure appears that Elliot Spitzer's days are numbered and that he made up the whole case to further his political interests to become Governor of New York. Some say Elliot Spitzer is the sleaze from hell and he is as crooked and corrupt as they come. Others agree and a few just do not have the cranial capacity to hold that opinion. Such abuse of power has elevated him to infamous status. The often labeled arrogant, self important, meglomanic gone bureaucratically ballistic man will probably be headed for a sharp fall now that everyone knows the truth, that his cases are simply bogus.
In the New York Post the headline reads "DEMS HOPE BIG SETBACK IS FORGOTTEN BY ELECTION DAY" By FREDRIC U. DICKER State Editor Albany. Fredric the top New York Editor goes on to say;
"Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's reputation as the Sheriff of Wall Street suffered its first major blow yesterday, but just how serious the damage will be to the highly ambitious Democratic gubernatorial hopeful remains to be seen."
Elliot Spitzer seems to be continuing his fishing expedition, going after big names and huge companies. Apparently he does not care if the charges are relevant only that his name is in the headlines everyday. Many on Wall Street are glad to see the tyrant dictator "Chairman Kim Jong Il" type get a reality check. Others compare what he has done to free enterprise to that of the 9-11 attacks of Osama Bin Laden. After all his two biggest cases have "American" in their names. Elliot Spitzer has single handedly done more to hurt America's competitiveness in World Markets than the trade deficit with China
Many junior regulators who file bogus cases and emulate him will have their little feelings hurt now, but they know that the courts will no longer put up with sort BS. This is a good day for America to right the wrongs of one Elliot Spitzer as we reign in the regulatory abuses of power.

In the future when we decide to help nations vote and enter their new freedom of democracy at a time when we have significant resistance in the form of a guerilla contingency or insurgency we should specially modify the ink die to prove a vote was cast to identify the good citizens.By mixing a specific chemical which is safe biologically, but shows up under UV light, we can tell when they approach a check point at night if they are the good guys or bad guys.

The Politics of American Public Education and Why Dramatic Progress Still Eludes Us
The current political efforts aimed at improving the American public educational system appear to reflect Einstein's definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again hoping for different results - than truly creating sustainable change.

Colonel Boyd on Limited War and Iraq Victory
In discussing the OODA Loop theory on Limited War by Colonel Boyd with in the context and patterns of conflict, it appears that we as a nation have forgotten the other options dictated by previous conflicts in the works of von Clauswitz "On War" in that we are disregarding such options and scenarios entirely. In our attempt to move the human race into a different space we are also changing the theory of war in order to do so.

Ronald Reagan is Right
Why is it that every single thing government does; it does not do well? Why is it that every single mistake of any real hurt is caused by the government? Why is it that every time government screws up AGAIN, we are told that they will fix the problem? Yah right? When has government ever fixed anything? Ronald Reagan once said the most scary words in the English Language were; "Hi, I'm from the Government; and I am here to help you!" he later said when asked about that quote that he could not recant it and offered advice to anyone who hears it; "RUN" he said.Let's face it you do not have to be Ronald Reagan to know when you are being fed a line of malarkey.

Government Backed Fraud in Academia
Contrary to the Hobbesian prediction of anarchy (freedom) and brutish or unproductive results in the event that elites (often termed 'beneficent paternalism') aren't fostered: we find lots of evidence that team play and open organizational structure actually creates more civilized and productive governance. Lincoln Electric in Cleveland is a well-documented example of how sharing the wealth and responsibility builds communication and profit.
