Kyle Olson says if you're expecting change from the Republicans, think again. They couldn't get the guts up to repeal the ridiculous school food standards that were imposed by Michelle Obama. The changes appeared in a draft of the continuing budget resolution, but were no where to be found in the final bill that passed the House. So the next time your child has to sneak a Twinkie into school for a little nourishment, you can thank John Boehner. But at least Rudy Giuliani has the guts to stand up and point the finger of blame at Al Sharpton and the Teachers' Unions for the failure that passes for education in America today. A rare show of honesty by any standard.

Chris Martenson of joined us today. He explains that the world economy is slowing down and the authorities are fretting.

Japan, Italy, and Greece are all in recession. China is slowing down according to official statistics, and even more according to whispered accounts.

Germany, France and the Netherlands are all at stall speed.

According to the BLS, the United States is doing just great at nearly 4% growth for two straight quarters, but you wouldn't know that either from the quality of the few jobs being created (which is low) or from consumer spending (also low).

The worry, as always, has nothing to do with the central banks' concern for you, your job, your children, the actual prices you pay, wealth equality, or the future, and everything to do with the simple fact that the stability of the banking system absolutely depends on a steady stream of new loans.

The problem, as always, is that we have a monetary system that is either expanding or collapsing. It has no steady state.
