FiredFox... or The Shame of Mozilla

  Some years ago, when heterosexualism was still dominating, it was said it would be discrimination if someone suffered any loss due to the fact that he was a gay. Today we are seeing the opposite.

In most of the East European countries that have borders with Ukraine, or are close to it, always has started a PR campaign on the need of rearmament of the army with new and better equipment. On the front of this propaganda in some countries are even high positioned officials – presidents, PMs and ministers.

QE size continues to match the size of budget deficit

Many comments can be heard on Fed’s QE3 policy, but there is one principle that obviously always is followed – the size of the QE is about the size of the federal budget deficit. It is a fact that due to sequester and to battle in Congress there was achieved a decrease in the negative result of government balance sheet. So – in answer now Fed lowers the QE.
