News out today is creating some drama in the currency market. U.S. exports continue to grow adding to the risk that America may be joining the currency wars.
If you're a regular listener to this show that should come as no shock to you. We've been talking about the rather precarious situation the U.S. is in right now and the very real risk that we might see additional action by the Fed to keep America's strengthening dollar in check.
I also spend some time today talking about the Oregon shooting. If you remember I spent a lot of time a couple days ago talking it there from the perspective of protecting individual sovereignty but today I want to approach it from the perspective of desired outcome. Would reducing gun ownership reduce crime? Not, would it reduce gun crime. If you took away all the guns you would most definitely see a reduction in gun crime. But would it stop the mass killings and violence we've seen in recent years from active shooters in schools and on college campuses?
All that and a brief discussion on the labor unions in California who are trying to get an exemption for the $15/hr minimum wage hike that advocated for. It truly is criminal.
