The Obama Budget for 2013

This article gives a good description of Obama's 2013 budget. I think it works well with the "Y Article" that was posted previously on the Blog. The "Y Article" lines out really well what the U.S. believes is important with the budget they post and follow. The Washington Post article I posted here gives a good description of the 2013 Obama Budget.


KIOBEL v. ROYAL DUTCH PETROLEUM CO PLC (The future of corporations power in the US)


Basically this case explains that corporations are liable as juridical persons under domestic law does not mean that they are liable under international law (and, therefore, under the ATS). If it is found that the they are liable under international law then it may be the start to overturn the Supreme Court decision Citizens United. This case law is sort of long but very interesting and is very important for the future of the United States.
