Operation American Spring falls flat: ‘This is very disappointing,’ Texan says
Operation American Spring, billed as a Friday morning multi-million patriot march on Washington, D.C., to oust leadership from the nation’s capital — from President Obama to House Speaker John Boeher — has proven woefully below expectations. Washington Times

The Plots to Destroy America
In Baldwin County, Alabama, an award-winning plan to provide guidance for private-sector developers was spiked—it was, constituents complained, part of a United Nations plot to end property rights, impose communism and force locals onto rail cars heading to secret camps. When the blueprint was voted down, residents cheered and sang “God Bless America.” Every member of the zoning commission resigned in disgust. Newsweek

Operation American Spring reveals plan to dismantle Obama’s America, starting Friday
The organizers of Operation American Spring don’t really expect their demonstration to dislodge some of the nation’s top elected officials. At least, not right away. “When a large chunk of the populace is saying you’re not getting the job done and you have to step down, the House and the Senate have to elect new leadership, that should send a message,” said Alex Coffey, who identified himself as marketing director for the group but insisted he was just a “foot soldier.” Raw Story

Chiquita's abandonment of Gulfport for New Orleans latest chapter for a company with a long, sordid history
It was on this day (May 15, 2014) 123 years ago that Pope Leo XIII issued his landmark encyclical Rerum Novarum, also known as "The Condition of Labor." It's too bad that officials with major corporations like the North Carolina-based Chiquita Brands International probably have never heard of it. Southern Studies

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Urban areas have all kinds of assets that are easy to spot. They have the population, so the labor shed is not usually an issue. Urban areas are also connected by better roads, rail and air service and many have river and deep water ports. Usually Internet access and other forms of communication are more efficient in urban areas. And you have a larger array of quality of life options to choose from, such as the cultural assets found in metropolitan areas.

 FEATURE  
By Mike Randle
The belief that "80 percent of all new jobs come from existing business and industry" is an out-of-date, old-fashioned fabrication. I have no idea how it started, where it started, or who said it first, but there are professionals in economic development as well as leaders of government in the South who actually believe that each year, 80 percent (why 80 percent I don't know, either) of all new jobs are created by existing business and industry. I hear it all the time and I just roll my eyes. There is nothing static in economic development but this: 100 percent of all lost jobs come from existing business and industry. That, and of course 100 percent of the time site consultants never pay for a meal.

According to Chinese theory, yin is a passive, negative force and yang is an active, positive force. Chinese philosophers believe that the opposing forces aren't really contradictory. Instead, they are interconnected and complimentary, interacting to create a balance in one's life.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation's KIDS COUNT report was released in the summer quarter. I try to read it every time it comes out since I find it to be the best indicator of child poverty, a statistic everyone involved in economic development needs to be aware of. The Annie E. Casey Foundation is a charity that supports disadvantaged children.
