The news released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on Friday appeared to be all good: The unemployment rate was down by 0.2 percent to 8.3 percent, the lowest since the month after President Obama was inaugurated. November and December estimates were revised upward. Most private industries showed growth, including 70,000 new business services jobs, 50,000 new manufacturing jobs, and a remarkable 21,000 new jobs in the construction industry. The labor force expanded by 500,000 which appeared to indicate that more people are coming back into the market looking for work.    
Bureaucrats at the United Nations are floating the idea of a global tax on all financial transactions in order to fund the organization's over-arching, worldwide social services program which would supposedly provide individuals in need all over the world with such basics as free health care, housing, education, and even a basic income level.  
Living in a city with a substantially diminished police force, a growing number of the residents of Detroit, Michigan, have decided that they can take a “bite out of crime” all on their own, and are using firearms in self-defense to protect themselves from the burgeoning ranks of violent criminals.  
Marta Andreasen, the courageous former chief accountant of the European Union, will not give up. In 2002 she was fired for refusing to sign off on the European Commission’s accounts. But she has continued to hold the EU politicians and eurocrats in Brussels to account, exposing fraud, waste and corruption on her web site, http://www.martaandreasen.com.  In 2009 she was elected as a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), an office she uses to shine the light of exposure on the dark dealings of the EU’s priviledged politicians and civil “servants.” In a January 26 article entitled “MEPs should hang heads in shame over ‘jollies,’” published by Public ServiceEurope, Ms. Andreasen exposed recent records of lavish spending by the eurocrats for foreign junkets.  
The Chinese government announced on Monday that it would prohibit its airlines from paying a controversial “carbon tax” on flights to and from Europe imposed by the European Union, putting the continental regime in a tough bind as it seeks assistance from Beijing to tackle the region’s spiraling debt crisis. Unspecified retaliatory measures will be taken if the EU persists, according to Chinese officials, who say the taxes violate international treaties.  
During a recent trip to Egypt, U.S Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had some key advice for the leaders of this Middle Eastern country as it supposedly moves past a long era of oppression and dictatorship into freedom for its people: Don’t use the U.S. Constitution as a model in penning your own governing document.    
Carlos Martinelly-Montano, the drunk-driving Bolivian national who killed a Benedictine nun in Virginia in August, 2010, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. The case became a national scandal after the public learned that Martinelly-Montano was a twice-convicted drunk driver and that federal authorities had twice delayed his deportation hearing. Although authorities had apprehended the Bolivian, they released him because they did not believe he was a flight risk.  
The governments of China and Russia blocked a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad to hand over power, sparking outrage among Western and Arab leaders supposedly concerned about a bloody conflict that has already claimed thousands of lives. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the UN vetoes by vowing to redouble the Obama administration’s efforts to take down the regime.  
On Friday attorneys for the Obama administration filed a motion with the Supreme Court requesting more time in which to make its oral arguments in defense of ObamaCare.  The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590) obligates every American to purchase a qualifying health insurance policy by 2014 or be subject to a tax penalty, with failure to pay possibly resulting in imprisonment.    
The Washington Post reports:  "It’s not often that Congress voluntarily surrenders power, and even less common for both parties to agree to do so."
