Calling all men, don't commit suicide !!

This is a very important article in my opinion.  Suicides in the military are at an all time high and with the economic situation in the U.S., the rates are rising among men in the civilian sector.  We've all heard the usual babble but what about a perspective from an economist?  Here you go !!

The price of parasites !!

Let's take a look at the economics of the welfare state another way !

The Real Class Warfare !!!!

If you are generation X (like me), generation Y or millenials, there is one generation that demands it all no matter the cost or who pays !!  It's the baby boomers guys !!!!

Tweedlerep for President !!

“HI Bangkok: It's clean, clean clean!”

Last month I grew to love this quiet neighborhood with its inexpensive
Hostelling International site.HI Bangkok hostel is tucked behind a
larger hostel, in Bangkok's Thewet. At HI Bangkok, everything is
serene -- and clean. In a city this size you really appreciate a
spotless hotel and a desk staff that's well informed.

Living in the women’s dorm, I was in the clean and airy lobby quite a
bit and met a lot of other travelers from other places. One
particularly kind guest was Chris Phillips from the US (website:
www.phillipsneurologicalinstitute.com).

Chris and I took an air con city bus the desk clerk recommended, and
went shopping for my new laptop. After shopping at Panthip Plaza, we
rested outdoors and watched the culture, talking about our plans. (We
were both re-locating: Chris to Manila, and me to Chiang Mai.)

To find the hostel, take the airport link to Payathani or the airport
bus to Kaohsan Road. A dorm room at HI Bangkok is 250 Thai baht and
private rooms start at 600 baht. Their website is http://www.tyha.org.
