because the Palestinians were allowed in.

107 countries voted in favor, 14 against.

The more things “change”, the more they remain the same, eh?

I am 32. I work 55 hours a week and make less than 2000 a month. I have been at my job for 13 years and even though their stocks are increasing they say there are no funds for raises. Health insurance through work is 12% of my pay per check. My husband can only find temp jobs because he doesn’t have a degree. He is having a hard time getting hired now because he’s only had temp jobs over the last 3 years. I am already 60000 in debt with student loans. We have 5 children and we can’t pay our bills. We can’t pay rent. My 401k is gone, my parents are gone, my grandparents are gone.

Are we going to be living on the street soon?

We are the 99%

Charles P. Pierce rubs “serious” Republican noses in their own shit.

Serious Republicans have become concerned. By Serious Republicans, I mean the people who would like to forget how much their party has profited politically over the past 50 years by allying itself with Bible-thumpers, sexual bigots, the sad detritus of American apartheid, the black-helicopter crowd, and people who would like the federal income tax to be as flat as they believe the earth is. By Serious Republicans, I mean the likes of Jeb Bush, Haley Barbour, David Frum, John Podhoretz, and Karl Rove.

(Yes, for the purposes of argument, Karl Rove is a Serious Republican, and not just an unusually successful ratfker who, at one point or another, has used all the above-listed constituencies to win elections. Just play along, okay?)

The Serious Republicans have become concerned over the 2012 Republican presidential field in general, and over Rick Perry in the specific. The other day, Podhoretz, showing the true loyalty to self of the career Legacy Hire, took to the pages of that deeply serious newspaper, The New York Post, which will publish anything written by a conservative that is not written in bodily humours, to moan about the quality of the help his party is being asked to hire. Quoth The Pod:

Stop proposing nonsense tax plans that won’t work. Stop making ridiculous attention-getting ads that might be minimally acceptable if you were running for county supervisor in Oklahoma. Stop saying you’re going to build a US-Mexico border fence you know perfectly well you’re not going to build. Give the GOP electorate and the American people some credit. This country is in terrible shape. They know it. You know it. They want solutions. You’re providing comedy. This is a serious time. It requires serious leaders. Where’s the gravity?

The intellectual burning and chafing among the Serious Republicans grew most acute when Perry, staring both a colossal failure and Donald Trump — but we repeat ourselves — in the face, seemed to flirt with reviving the “issue” of President Obama’s citizenship and to suggest that he might reopen the “issue” of the president’s birth certificate. Oh, the swooning and the vapors that ensued.

…and has the time, I’d love to see a daily update on what’s happening with OWS appear on this page.

I’d do it, but I honestly no longer have the time.

Still, sometimes all it takes is a suggestion, a mustard seed, the planting of an idea, a seed for things to crystallize around.

If anyone steps up and does this, I’d be grateful. But not so grateful you’d get a cut of the million $ I’m (not) selling the URL for. :-)

Sort of reminds me Mike Gravel’s rock ad. But far, far creepier.

Delaware

First, we elected nothing but Democrats in the “GOP wave” election of 2010.

Now this.

Mortgage Registry MERS Sued by Delaware Attorney General

Oct. 27 (Bloomberg) — Merscorp Inc., the operator of a national mortgage registry used by banks, was sued by Delaware’s attorney general for allegedly using deceptive practices that hide information from borrowers.

The MERS database, which tracks ownership interests in mortgages, impeded the ability of homeowners to fight foreclosures and obscures its data, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden said in a complaint filed today.

“MERS engaged and continues to engage in a range of deceptive trade practices that sow confusion among consumers, investors and other stakeholders in the mortgage finance system, damage the integrity of Delaware’s land records, and lead to unlawful foreclosure practices,” Biden said.

This goes a long way towards explaining why I can’t understand why so much of the rest of the country is certifiably bugfuck nuts; I’m not surrounded, on a daily basis, by people who are certifiably bugfuck nuts.

Daryl Hall is actually capable of making music that doesn’t make you want to shoot your radio? Who knew?
It’s really a damn good remake.
