More Polling In The Inland Empire-- More Good News For Eloise Reyes

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 29 minutes ago
Ros-Lehtinen (FL) and Denham (CA), 2 Republicans in favor of immigration reform... unlike Gary Miller Gary Miller, a multimillionaire, crooked Confederate Civil War reenactor from Arkansas was always an odd pick for the new Inland Empire district carved 2 years ago out of the districts of retiring congressmen David Dreier and Jerry Lewis and defeated Blue Dog, Joe Baca. The only reason Miller won is because DCCC Chairman Steve Israel insisted on backing a pathetic empty suit, the appointed mayor of Redlands, Peter Aguilar.

7 Easy Ways To Add Meatless Meals To Your Table

Small Footprints at Reduce Footprints - 30 minutes ago
Welcome to the first Friday of the month. Usually I share a delicious recipe with you, but this month I decided to do something a bit different. We've talked about the many reasons to eat meatless meals and we've explored some wonderful dishes from people all over the world. But once we've made the decision to incorporate more vegan foods into our lives, how do we get started? I'm glad you asked! Here are some proven ways to easily add meatless meals to your table: 1. Simply remove the meat.Many dishes work well without the addition of beef, pork, etc. For example, spaghetti m... more »

Why I will not be speaking at Southeast TESOL next week

skrashen at Schools Matter - 1 hour ago
I will not be speaking at the Southeast TESOL Association Meeting to be held in Myrtle Beach next week, because of a disagreement about my keynote topic. I learned only recently that the conference theme was supporting the common core, that it was "dedicated entirely to providing teachers with strategies for working with common core and all of the states in attendance have adopted it." I therefore changed my topic to "The case against the common core." This was rejected by the SETESOL Executive Committee. I was told that "this topic cannot be presented to this group of attendee... more »

Slow start for Obamacare?...(video)

Adrienne at Adrienne's Corner - 1 hour ago
*would be an understatement.* *And this administration just keeps lying and lying. * *“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.” ― A... more »

* “Out Of Eden”* by Chet Raymo “The Maori of New Zealand imagined the original man with his head planted firmly in the earth, an ocean issuing from his mouth, in his groin a gum tree, clouds on his feet. What are we to make of this upside-down Adam? No head-in-the-clouds this fellow. His tattooed noggin is fixed in the soil like a tuber. Arms spread like an ocean-going outrigger canoe. Heart and lungs smoldering in the hearth of his chest. Only the soles of his feet keeping the sky from crushing him out. Looks good to me. Humankind as integral to nature.

Humans are simply uncontainable. Get used to it.

Obi-Wan Kabuki at AMERICAN KABUKI - 3 hours ago
Posted by: American Kabuki “Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can ... more »

Al Qaeda Terrorists Pass US Special Forces, CIA Agents on Way to Syria

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 3 hours ago
*November 1, 2013* (Tony Cartalucci) - A recent Daily Telegraph article reveals that armies of Al Qaeda terrorists are using NATO-member Turkey as a springboard for their invasion of neighboring Syria. NATO is the chief executor of the so-called "War on Terror," started in 2001 after Al Qaeda terrorists allegedly flew four passenger planes into various targets on America's east coast, including the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon. Nearly 3,000 people died in a single day. The invasion of Afghanistan promptly followed based on the pretense that it was "harboring" members of Al Q... more »

Libby Spencer at The Impolitic - 6 hours ago
You'll be shocked to learn Senate Republicans are blocking critical judicial nominees again. They're damned determined to keep the D.C.Circuit controlled by cons and they're not afraid to filibuster. (What "gentlemen's" agreement?) And can we please call the "court-packing" claim a lie? Cornyn's court-packing claim is misleading -- it is a reference to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's attempts to expand the size of the Supreme Court; Obama merely wants to fill vacancies on the appellate level. But he repeated the talking point in multiple op-eds recently, laying the groundw... more »

It's a great item, chock full of links to all the totally excellent advice that pundits have been giving Barack Obama, everything from "stop golfing" to "grow a beard." That last one was probably not fair; I'm pretty sure Alex Seitz-Wald didn't really think it would solve Obama's problems, much less the nation's. But the rest? Fair game!

Tom DeLay, God And Original Intent-- Happy Halloween

George Orwell wrote that "religion is the last refuge of a scoundrel," a take on Alfred North Whitehead's "religion is the last refuge of human savagery" and Samuel Johnson's "Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel." All three adages fit Tom DeLay, who claims to be on a mission from God, equally well. Samuel Johnson, Boswell assures us, was referring only to "false patriotism." DeLay's egregious corruption drove him out of his leadership role in the House GOP and then out of the House entirely. Until he was rescued by a corrupt Republican appeals judge, his guilty convicti... more »

Of Course McConnell Has Blocked the Senate 400 Times

Jonathan Bernstein at A plain blog about politics - 8 hours ago
Earlier this week, Glenn Kessler wrote one of the puzzling fact-check columns I've seen in a while. It was over a claim by Democratic challenger Allison Lundergan Grimes that Mitch McConnell has "blocked the Senate over 400 times." And right up until the final two paragraphs, it was a fine column; in fact, I'd say it was an excellent, first-rate job. Up to those final two paragraphs. Kessler makes a number of good points. He recognizes that cloture votes and filibusters are not the same thing. Correct! He recognizes that some cloture votes fail. Correct! And he gets the key point: ... more »

Small Footprints at Reduce Footprints - 9 hours ago
With the recent news that air pollution is now considered to be a leading cause of lung cancer, there is a growing emphasis on the need for stringent controls and measures that curb the potential impact of carbon emissions. The issue facing small business owners, however, is that few of them have an understanding of these measures or quite how important they are in the current environmental climate. Without this fundamental basis of knowledge, however, you may run the risk of failing in terms of compliance and providing a safe working environment to employees. The Most Effective Air... more »

If you're a regular *DWT* reader, you know better. Of course, virtually every Republican in Congress is a full on shill for Wall Street. It's part of their DNA. But it's part of the DNA of a significant chunk of the Democratic congressional caucus as well. When it comes to catering to Wall Street there is virtually no difference whatsoever between Republicans and New Dems. Yesterday, 70 Wall Street-oriented Democrats voted with all but 3 Republicans to pass H.R. 992, an amendment to gut a piece of the Dodd-Frank financial reform consumer protection act.

So I ask myself: do our brains also contain special neuronal pockets making us fear spiders, bears and sabre-tooth tigers? And before Homo sapiens goes entirely extinct, will evolution go into speed-dial emergency survival mode and gift us with a special place in our cerebral cortices which enable us to spot a slimy politician from a mile away?

This is what happens when the two parties ruling Washington lose touch with America and pander to their crazy-extreme bases: President Obama's competency and personality ratings are nose-diving, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll; barely a sliver of the public thinks highly of the Republican Party; and two-thirds of Americans want to replace their own member of Congress.
