The Worlds Biggest Chocolate-Maker Says We’re Running Out Of Chocolate, by Roberto Ferdman, at washingtonpost.com. I love chocolate so this article is important to me. Dry weather along with a fungal disease in West Africa has reduced global cocoa production by 30%. The demand for more cocoa is rising because of economic growth in China and more over all world demand for dark chocolate, {which contains 70% chocolate compared with 10% in regular chocolate bars). But don’t worry because the same economic forces of supply and demand that are bringing the price of oil and gas down, will eventually do the same thing for chocolate. As the price goes up individuals will produce {supply} more at the higher price, and individuals will consume {demand} less at these higher prices, eventually bringing the price down.

Under Pressure From Uber, Taxi Medallion Prices Are Plummeting, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Once again the status quo monopoly is about to crack. Government regulations have artificially kept the prices for taxi medallions high for decades. Economic forces in the market always have a way of winning.

Here It Comes: Master Card Seeks “Level Playing Field” For Bitcoin Regulation, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Are we beginning to see a pattern: Status quo companies lobby their buddies in Government, in order to get rid of their upstart competitors. It is apparently less costly to do this, than compete in the market with these upstarts. The myth is, big business likes competition. In reality they liked competition when they were the up start competitors. They don’t like it as much once they get near the top.

The Difference Between Men And Women, thechive.com. I will make no comments about this post!

SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT FERGUSON MISSOURI

*This is starting to remind me of the Duke rape case. It fits a preconceived narrative, until the facts finally come out.

*Why did the race hustlers and the media pick this particular story. Why didn’t they pick this story, Michael Blair Shot by Police in Fort Bend County Texas (watch video). {Family calls for help after their mentally ill son locks himself in the bathroom threatening to hurt himself}

*The break down of the rule of law starts when politicians and bureaucrats ignore the law that they mandate the citizens follow.  Citizens will start to defy the law, and a gradual escalation starts on both sides. This didn’t just start last week.

*It’s hard to believe anyone in this situation is telling the truth. The truth is the foundation not just of how we interact with each other, it is the foundation of our ethics, our morals, and the rule of law. When the foundation collapses, so does the structure that is built on it.

*Politicians, bureaucrats, and journalists are trying to separate us into as many groups as possible in order to pit us against each other. This allows them to control us by controlling the narrative. We have to understand that there are two and only two groups; 1) politicians and bureaucrats who have access to the sword government power, and 2) we who are expected to obey the sword of Government power. The American Revolution was fought to give the individual sovereignty over the Government. This has been flipped upside down, and it’s time to flip it back.
