Early Yesterday morning I had a bout of violent nausea shortly after posting articles. I felt better later in the day, but just queasy enough that my planned game day feast became a bowl of soup and crackers. I watched the Super Bowl and enjoyed a good game. The commercials were almost as entertaining as the game. I’m current with replies. Today I have errands to run.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today it took me 3:02 (average 4:19). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From Think Progress: The past week brought heightened discussion of a potential Israeli unilateral attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. But House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), appearing on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley this morning, agreed that an Israeli attack would “light the Middle East on Fire” and could be “a real problem for the national security interests of the United States.”
On those very rare occasions where a Republican actually says something honest and sensible, it is only proper that I give credit where credit is due.
From Raw Story: Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer will help the Susan G. Komen foundation deal with its decision to halt grants to Planned Parenthood and the subsequent PR disaster, according to the Washington Post.
Fleischer served under the Bush administration.
I’m not surprised that Komen is turning to a professional Republican liar to help them spin their dastardly deed.
From Crooks and Liars: Federal Election Commission filings released this week showed that conservatives groups are amassing an ocean of cash for the 2012 presidential campaign. Thanks to the likes of the Koch brothers, the Walton clan and other of the usual suspects on the right, in 2011 conservative SuperPAC’s outraised their liberal counterparts by more than seven to one. But if they win, rich Republican donors could more than get back the millions they invested. As it turns, just one law they are trying to buy – the elimination of the estate tax – could put billions of dollars back into their families’ bank accounts. Of course, that gaping hole would have to be filled by all other American taxpayers.
There is no doubt whatsoever about who the 1% want in power. Don’t help them.
