5 Things You Should Know About Jim Webb
Jim Webb is now the fifth Democrat to pursue the 2016 presidential nomination. He made the announcement Thursday on his website, acknowledging that other candidates in the race are likely to have more money and bigger campaign machines than he does. "I understand the odds, particularly in today's political climate where fair debate is so often drowned out by huge sums of money," he wrote. But, he added, "our country needs a fresh approach to solving the problems that confront us and too often unnecessarily divide us. We need to shake the hold of these shadow elites on our political process." The former senator has a colorful background as a veteran, author, reporter and defender of the Confederacy.

GOP youth break with elders in acceptance of same-sex marriage
AUSTIN - The Supreme Court's acceptance of same-sex marriage lit the fires of Republican scorn. Two Texas GOP presidential hopefuls - Sen. Ted Cruz and former Gov. Rick Perry - denounced the ruling to allow gay and lesbian couples to wed throughout the country. Just this week Cruz suggested in an NPR interview that most states should ignore it. But the court's opinion brought shrugs - even some embraces - from many of the GOP's younger members. Jacksonvilleprogress.com

What’s Got into Rick Perry?
Governor Jobs-Jobs-Jobs takes up civil rights. The case against Rick Perry is political: In a field that includes George W. Bush’s kid brother, Rick Perry still manages to be the man who will remind voters of what they remember least fondly about the last Republican president, the metaphorical DNA of Texas politics superseding the literal DNA in Jeb Bush’s mitochondria. The case for Rick Perry? Everything else. National Review

 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.

After I finished the cover story for this issue, I read an interesting article by economist Paul Krugman, the op-ed columnist for the New York Times, titled, "Partying like it’s 1995." Generally I side with Krugman, even though I am a journalist, not an economist. Occasionally, though, I read some of his stuff and ask myself, "What planet did Krugman come from?" Like when he predicted a shift of automotive assembly to Canada after Toyota announced a new plant in Woodstock, Ontario in 2005 because of "free healthcare," among other benefits. That Toyota deal was the last major automotive assembly plant announced in Canada and I predict it will be the very last one for the Canadians.

If you have ever seen one of my presentations, then you know about the word "reshoring" and how that phenomenon has lifted the spirits of even the most skeptical Southerners regarding the future of the region's economy. After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
