The USA/Korea free trade deal will proceed to congress shortly. Our government is still sticking to its position that this agreement will cause a net gain of jobs in the USA.
Sadly, they have not come forward with any facts to back up that position.
More soundly the Economic Policy Institute has issued data indicating 159,000 American jobs will be lost if this deal is approved. They also show this agreement would, far from the government position that would reduce trade deficit; this agreement would actually increase our trade deficit by $16.7 billion.
It is time to stop approving these deals unless they can prove that there is actual net gain in both the number and quality of jobs.

According to news reports, Iran’s effort to enrich uranium to build nuclear weapons has been dealt a setback by a complex, difficult to eradicate computer virus that has brought down their computer systems.
In one bit of good news in the effort to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, Iranian government and industrial computer systems overseeing advanced industrial equipment have apparently been brought to their knees by the so called “Stuxnet” worm.
The computers that run the actual centrifuges have been among those infected. That is the actual device that enriches the uranium were among those infected. The process has, temporally at least, been brought to a halt.
The question of who developed the Stuxnet worm remains a mystery, though fingers are being pointed at the USA, Europe, and Israel’s secret service departments. It could in fact be some other third party that does not want the world brought closer to nuclear war.
Whoever gave us this temporary respite, our government still needs to act to insure a peaceful, nuclear weapons free Middle East.

According to multiple news reports this morning, reusable shopping bags made in China contain dangerous amounts of lead.
Here is one article: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/content/view/45963/
Please check and do not use reusable shopping bags that are made in China. They should be returned to the store where they were purchased. Due to the lead, they probably should not be put in the normal garbage or recycling bins, but may need special disposable handling, or hopefully returned to China.
