Yesterday was restful. I both slept and researched more hours than normal. I’m current with replies. Today I will have to make a store run.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today it took me 3:18 (average 4:23). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From MoveOn: If Mitt Romney’s Dog Could Write A Song, It Might Go Like This
Romney is just as oblivious to the needs of people too!
From Care2: Apparently, the Supreme Court is now in the business of forcing states to break their own laws as long as it benefits corporations and the politicians they control. On Wednesday, SCOTUS blocked a Montana court ruling that upheld the state’s century-old limit on corporate campaign spending. So much for state’s rights…
The author does not understand the ruling, which only stays the Montana court ruling until that ruling can be appealed, opening the door for a full review of Citizens United.
From Common Dreams: A clear message has been given to the United States through the tripartite summit of Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan that Pakistan will support Iran in case of any possible aggression against it.
Moreover, Pakistan has clearly affirmed that the US will not be allowed to set up any airbases in Pakistan with the purpose of attacking Iran. The joint declaration says: "Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan will ensure respect of territorial sovereignty of each other and would not allow any threat emanating from their respective territories against each other".
What kind of insanity is it when our client, our so-called ally, and a state we oppose form a pact against this nation? We need to pull the plug on funding Karzai, whose only qualification ever was his willingness to be a puppet for G.W. ChickenHawk and Big Oil, and get out troops out as soon as we can. In addition we need to pull the plug on financing Pakistan. With friends like that, who needs enemies.
From Washington Post: Ron Paul has gained 83 votes on Mitt Romney following a Republican presidential caucus in eastern Maine, where voting last week had been postponed due to bad weather. Romney still holds a 156-vote lead over Paul in statewide totals.
Thank goodness! If Ron Paul had actually won one, the acolytes in his cult would be even more insufferable than they already are!
