I have been overwhelmed with angry letters, emails and phone calls since Mayor Vincent Francia sent his letter on June 27. First the mayor said, “I am very excited” about the great things happening in Cave Creek and he praises the disastrous election of four slate members that resulted in firing of the best town manager Cave Creek has ever seen.

One of the fundamental principles I have learned in more than thirty-years of advising the world’s leading brand marketers is quite simple. Brands that do not deliver on their promises are destined to fail.

We all heard and saw the hue and cry that Cave Creek was near bankruptcy raised throughout the last election. This started with the hit piece on Channel 5 orchestrated by a member of the Trenkster slate gang. That candidate couldn't handle the scrutiny of his background, dropped out of the election, but remained a trusted operative for the slate gang back in the shadows with the rest. The hit piece fed to a string reporter and sold to Channel 5 was met with stinging criticism and facts that established that the hit piece and the flood of baseless histrionics from the Trenkster slate gang propaganda machine was simply bald face lies.

“Instead of being adversaries to government power … [the media of Washington, D.C., are] … servants to it and mouthpieces for it.”
So said the Guradian’s Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story of Edward Snowden’s disclosure of NSA spying on the American people, after Greenwald’s confrontation with Meet the Press’sDavid Gregory. Greenwald needn’t have limited his observation to the D.C. media. Plenty of reporters and cable-news talking heads are playing the same role in the NSA drama.

$167 billion. That is how much extra the federal government will owe every year in gross interest payments for every point the interest rate on U.S. treasuries rises.
That's bad, because since Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced on June 18 a potential 2014 sunset to the central bank's quantitative easing program, 10-year treasuries have jumped from 2.2 percent to 2.57 percent.
