At the Campaign For Liberty's "Rally For the Republic," Lew Rockwell tore a strip off the establishment in one of the best speeches I have ever seen. Watch both parts of the speech on YouTube: Part 1 and Part 2
John Mauldin had a good 2 part series on the Credit Crisis and some signals to look for when it may be in it's dying days. He concludes that we are a long way off that day. Read Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
Frank Barbera had a good technical look at the equities markets, determining that in order for a definitive technical sign of an intermediate term top in the S&P 500, we still need either more time or higher prices to make that signal. He argues for a muddle-through phase as the Republicrats campaign for which of their two candidates will become president.
