QOTD: Another reason to doubt the [Supreme Court Second Amendment] dissenters' sincerity: They would never accept federalism as a rationale for letting states "experiment" with freedom of speech, freedom of religion, or due process protections. Much of their job, as they themselves see it, involves overriding "local preferences" that give short shrift to constitutional rights. -- Jacob Sullum

Remember all those Caterpillar jobs Obama talked about. Guess where they are.

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- Caterpillar Inc., the world's largest maker of construction and mining equipment, said Tuesday it plans to build a new manufacturing facility in Brazil to meet growing customer demand throughout Latin America.
Caterpillar said the move is part of its long-term strategy to expand its global manufacturing operations, noting it has seen a particularly strong economic recovery in Latin America over the last year.
Caterpillar said earlier this month its machine sales worldwide jumped 11 percent in May compared with a year ago. Sales dipped 2 percent in Latin America. Because its iconic yellow-and-black equipment is used in many different sectors all over the world, the company's sales are considered an indicator of global economic health.
The company said it expects to announce a location for the plant later this summer. Construction of the new facility is expected to begin late this year or early next year, pending final site approvals.
The new facility will produce backhoe loaders and small wheel loaders, which are among the products currently made at Caterpillar's facility in Piracicaba, Brazil. Once the manufacturing facility begins production, it will allow Caterpillar to increase production for the other machines made in Piracicaba.
The plant in Piracicaba makes wheel loaders, motor graders, backhoe loaders, track-type tractors, excavators, compactors, underground mining loaders, generator sets and a variety of components.

XUZHOU, China (AP) -- Caterpillar Inc. said Monday it has reached a deal to boost its stake in a joint venture with a Chinese company as part of an effort to expand its business in China.
Caterpillar said it agreed to buy Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group's 15.87 percent ownership interest Caterpillar Xuzhou Ltd., a joint venture launched in 1995.
Details of the transaction were not disclosed. It is subject to Chinese regulatory clearance.
If approved, the joint venture would become wholly owned by Caterpillar.
In addition, Caterpillar said it broke ground on a new excavator production facility in Xuzhou. Once completed in 2014, the company will have boosted its China-based excavator capacity by 400 percent, the company said.
Caterpillar is based in Peoria, Ill., and is the world's largest maker of construction and mining equipment
