WSJ July 9, 2013 – Pages A11-13 [Various articles]

Occasionally, The Biz Bucks Guy has so many articles to reference that a potpourri is in order:

From “Summer Jobs for Guilty Generation” by Kessler: “…[O]bsessing over carbon footprints and LEED certifications and free range strawberries and charging for plastic bags will not help the world as much nearly as much as good old fashioned economic growth.”

From “Can Environmentalists Think?” by Stephens: “The reason oil is moved on trains…is because there aren’t enough pipelines to carry it.” This is the key to the lack of coverage of the terrible train accident in Quebec that, in addition to loss of lives, dumped 26,000 gallons of crude in the local river on its way to Quebec City and the St. Lawrence River. That environmental disaster will not be on the front pages because it is in contradiction to the environmental narrative of “no more pipelines.”

From “Obama Suspends the Law” by McConnell, a former US Appellate Judge and regarding President Obama’s latest ObamaCare illegal miscue of pushing the employer mandate off for twelve months in contradiction to Congressional law:  “Of all the stretches of executive power Americans have seen in the past few years, the president’s unilateral suspension of statutes may have the most disturbing long-term effects…As the Supreme Court said long ago (Kendall v. United States, 1838), allowing the president to refuse to enforce statutes passed by Congress ‘would be clothing the president with a power to control the legislation of congress, and the paralyze the administration of justice.’ “

Each of these articles has additional depth worthy of former Biz Bucks victims’ reading.

[The Biz Bucks Blog is primarily written to former students of Biz Bucks training courses to encourage their daily reading of the three opinion pages of the WSJ. This refreshes principles of Biz Bucks courses and improves business acumen on topics not discussed in Biz Bucks training. ]
