"The charges this troubled woman has made exceed common sense."
       --  Herman Cain, in his live press conference yesterday.

  Any idea what he means by that?
  What did she say that is illogical?

  Also, he said, "I didn't not recognize her at first,"
  which means he eventually recognized her, but he denies that, too.

  Conclusion: Cain is not a very good liar.

  BTW, is it possible that the credit card slip still exists that would prove
  that Cain paid to upgrade the room of this lady he claims he never met?

Dems win big at the polls
Unions have a great night, too


In a hard-won victory for Democrats and their labor-union allies, Ohioans decisively rejected
the state's collective-bargaining law on Tuesday night, repealing Rethug John Kasich's signature
legislation in a referendum that could reverberate into 2012.

Kasich acknowledged the defeat with humility, pledging to take the will of the voters into account.
"It's clear that the people have spoken. My view is when people speak in a campaign like this,
in a referendum, you have to listen," he said.

In the evening's other hotly anticipated ballot proposition, Mississippians shot down an anti-abortion
constitutional amendment known as the "Personhood amendment," which would have imposed the
stiffest restrictions on abortion of any state.

The amendment sought to define life as beginning at the point of fertilization, banned all abortions
— including those to pregnancies caused by rape or incest — as well the morning-after pill. It would
have been the first successful effort to pass a personhood amendment in the U.S.

So, we have more proof that Obama looks good for re-election.

If only we could get him to act like a Democrat.

The New York Times bestselling author of Armed Madhouse offers a globetrotting,
Sam Spade-style investigation that blows the lid off the oil industry, the banking industry,
and the governmental agencies that aren't regulating either.


This is the story of the corporate vultures that feed on the weak and ruin our planet
in the process-a story that spans the globe and decades.

For Vultures' Picnic, investigative journalist Greg Palast has spent his career uncovering the connection
between the world of energy (read: oil) and finance. He's built a team that reads like a casting call
for a Hollywood thriller-a Swiss multilingual investigator, a punk journalist, and a gonzo cameraman-
to reveal how environmental disasters like the Gulf oil spill, the Exxon Valdez, and lesser-known
tragedies such as Tatitlek and Torrey Canyon are caused by corporate corruption, failed legislation,
and, most interestingly, veiled connections between the financial industry and energy titans.
Palast shows how the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World Trade Organization,
and Central Banks act as puppets for Big Oil.

With Palast at the center of an investigation that takes us from the Arctic to Africa to the Amazon,
Vultures' Picnic shows how the big powers in the money and oil game slip the bonds of regulation over
and over again, and simply destroy the rules that they themselves can't write-and take advantage
of nations and everyday people in the process.

"The kids that were the victims ... I think we all ought to say a prayer for them..."
       --  Joe Paterno, explaining why he has to go     Link

  Joe, you still don't get it?
  When a rape-in-progress is discovered, you're supposed to call the police.

  But if you did that, your friend Jerry would have to explain himself and we can't have that, right, Joe?
  Offering a prayer to a rape victim is sooo GOP.

Subject: "Personhood"

Dead on!  The definition of personhood is so vague it can't be, it doesn't
even apply to corporations!  Does this mean the governments of Alabama and Mississippi
are going to violate the Supreme Court ruling the corporations are persons?

Even more, one reason sexually active women don't get pregnant every month is that
the fertilized egg fails to implant in the uterus.  If they want to enforce this view of
"personhood" they will need to study all liquid emissions from women...all.

The Left Warns Obama
 "Tar Sands could be a deal-breaker"
Egged on by a supportive video from Robert Redford, the Religious Left (What?) rallied with
environmentalists on Sunday afternoon outside the White House to oppose the Keystone XLL
pipeline from Canada. This pipeline would carry dirty oil from Canada to Texas oil refineries.
More oil for America?!  Texas oil refineries!?  More jobs in the oil sector?! 
Naturally the Religious Left,
(What?) which hates oil spills and dead animals
hates crooked, greedy Texas oil men even more, is enraged.

The opponents of the tar sands pipeline would probably prefer that oil not be drilled anywhere.
But the short term consequence of their goals would be even more oil drilled far more messily
in places like Nigeria and Angola, and then expensively dragged through hundreds of miles of
ocean by belching oil tankers.  Who will speak for the aggrieved, violated sea life, not to mention
the millions in third world nations who live amid oil production and far less environmental regulation?

The problem isn't oil, per se.
The problem is crooked greedy oil men who refuse to follow the rules.

If BP hadn't been such greedy bastards, they would've paid the $500K for the Blowout Preventer
but they decided a problem was "unlikely" and they gambled with the clean water in the Gulf.

Remember the Exxon Valdez?
The skipper was drunk as hell when he ran that tanker into the ground.

Religiously insane oil men think Christ is coming for them soon
so why bother to keep the planet clean when they're about to go to Heaven?

Subject: Say no to the rich
  I read today that Bachman was putting forth her "everyone-pays" tax plan.
What is her plan? Raise taxes on the poor.

The Republicans seem to feel that the lower 99% need to pay more taxes.
That we should be the ones to shoulder the burden of society. All of them
have similar plans that have exactly the same effect. Big tax breaks for the rich,
huge tax increases for the rest of us. 

Are we smart enough to do the math?

America is not going to become a Plutocracy.
Plutocracy is a word coined by Citigroup to describe what America has become.

It refers to a society that is controlled by a few wealthy people. And it's not
like they earned it. They are stealing it from us. Their hands are in our pockets.

When we buy a house we pay more because of their investment properties.
When we buy gas and food we pay far more because the option traders are getting their third.
We taxpayers loan them money at 0 percent so they can gamble and if they lose we just
hand them trillions of dollars just to borrow it back from them as part of the national debt.

It's a power grab. And we are not going to let that happen.

Plutocracies do not work. That system isn't self sustaining and when it collapses
it takes the rich down too. America can not allow itself to evolve into something
that is self destructive. So we're just not going to put up with it anymore.

We need to get back on the right track and I think everyone can agree - this ain't it.
Our only reasonable course of action is to form a new vision of America where we
do what Americans have always done in hard times. We need to come together so
that all of us come out OK.

The rest of the world is leaving America behind
because crooked Republicans are taking bribes
to embrace yesterday's dirty energy.

 Reagan statue looks like Saddam's
  Reagan not nearly as loved as FOX says...


Police were scratching their heads over why someone tried to topple a Reagan bronze in a Newport Beach park.
According to authorities, someone lassoed the statue and hitched it to a pickup early Sunday. The theft was foiled
when the rope or chain slipped off as the pickup pulled away. A witness alerted the police.

The statue, valued at about $50, was left leaning from its foundation. It was later removed from its base.

Police spokeswoman Kathy Lowe said they are looking for a man in a tan pickup.

That statue is less crooked than Reagan was.

Remember, they had to bury his papers to hide Reagan's crimes
but our brainless Demcrats are too stupid to pick up on the obvious.

Next time the GOP says, "We want to name this after Reagan," the Dems should say,
"Sure, as soon as you make his papers public so we can see who we're honoring."

That would nip all that statue talk in the bud, but our
cowardly, braindead Democrats can't figure that out.

  Subject: Citizen Cain
Citizen Cain's denial of sexual harassment of women could be based on his assessment
of what is harassment. His standards of behavior must be different than what sociality
believes appropriate. He has a sliding scale of standards depending on what he wants to do.
 David T.

David, good point.

If Cain figures every woman owes him oral sex, then he's
only guilty of asking for that which he's universally owed.

The World Series of Poker crowned a new champ last night - Heinz somebody.
I was up till 2: 30 watching the end of that.
Second-placer Stazsko foolishly  went "All in" with a 10-8 of Clubs - he lost.
I didn't even know it was on - I need a personal assistant.

WMDs replay on Iran?
  by Robert Perry

  The American public is about to be inundated with another flood of “expert analysis” about a
dangerous Middle Eastern country presumably hiding a secret nuclear weapons program that may
require a military strike, although this time it is Iran, not Iraq.
In the near future, you will be seeing more satellite photos of non-descript buildings that experts
will say are housing elements of a nuclear bomb factory. There will be more diagrams of supposed
nuclear devices. Some of the same talking heads will reappear to interpret this new “evidence.”
You might even recognize some of those familiar faces from the more innocent days of 2002-2003
when they explained, with unnerving confidence, how Iraq’s Saddam Hussein surely had chemical
and biological weapons and likely a nuclear weapons program, too.
For instance, back then, former United Nations weapons inspector David Albright was all over the
news channels, reinforcing the alarmist claims about Iraq’s WMD that were coming from Bush and
his neocon-dominated administration.

I don't get it.
It seems Robert Perry is attacking the Obama administration on so many different levels.
It would appear, in Perry's eyes, that Obama is getting everything wrong, instead of just some things

Iraq had no WMDs, but Iran certainly does - and they're close to getting nukes.
Is Bob saying 'Iran with nukes is not a problem?'

And what part of "Bush is gone" doesn't Perry get?
You can make parallels about Bush & Obama but Obama is not Bush.

Is Perry attacking Obama in an attempt to make amends
for his extra-exuberant support for him in 2008?

  Bart, you wrote:

So why didn’t the “A Guy” do more he did exactly what Joe did told someone and forgot it.

Also What did the AD do - just ignore it?
Why put all the blame on Joe PA?

Not necessarily a fan of Joes just trying to be fair.
 Carl in Mannford

For me, the enormity of the crime was so fucking outrageous and atrocious, Joe had
no business treating this like some mundane chore that was over when it was reported.

He knew Sandusky was raping kids and he didn't follow up.

Paterno: Hey Jerry, want to grab some supper?

Sandusky:  NO, I'm going to rape a nine-year old.

I can't imagine being so close to some dude that I would overlook the fact that
he was raping little boys so he and I could remain friends and co-workers.

Shame on Joe Paterno - he should NOT lead Penn State on to the field Saturday.

Bart, Last Issue's Mystery City that's the Monument to Serb and Albanian Partisans in Mitrovica, Kosovo.
It was intended to represent the overcoming of national divisions in the struggle for a shared ideal in mid-20th
Century Yugoslavia. Now tragically ironic, the town, divided between ethnic Serbs and Albanians, is a kind
of no man's land still patrolled by UN peacekeepers.

What is last issue's History Mystery?

Bart, that would be Bobby Riggs, a Wimbledon tennis champion a long time ago (1939)
and #1 player in the world from 1946-1949.  In the 1970’s he shot his mouth off about
how even an old man like him (aged 55) could beat the best women’s tennis player. 

He did play and beat Margaret Court but later played against Billie Jean King in the Astrodome
on national TV.  Billie Jean handed him his ass with a big victory for “women’s lib”.
  Dennis in DC

Dennis, thanks for that.
Many people got the right answer, but your reply was closest to what I was looking for.

Many people mentioned "Battle of the Sexes," but that phrase goes right over some peoples' heads.

Bobby was shooting his mouth off, saying he could beat "any woman" at tennis, and many
if not most people believed him but Billie Jean King wasn't having any of it.

She decided to teach him a lesson and PROVE that women can often beat a man at something
so she went out and kicked his ass soundly.  

Had she lost, they might still be saying women are inferior.

For me it was a "Rosa Parks" situation and Billie Jean King should be remembered for it.
