If you want a good read on wealth distribution in the United States this will make a good read.
It is a long read so grab a cup of coffee or non alcoholic beverage before hand. Grab alcohol you may be drunk before you are done.
You want to look at a graph on the income wealth in this country look at figure 9 at the bottom of the article. Looks to me like 99% of the population in this country works as a production worker or minimum wage worker no matter what political party you belong to.
Looks like we are all in the same boat to me.
They better Get their organization together to rally their votes.
The 2012 election could be lost by the republicans just like they did in 2008. Not getting out the vote. I followed the election results map in 08 and I could see where the votes were gotten out by the percentages.
I had a strong indication that this is how Reid won his election. Getting out the voters
The republicans are working against a tough competitor when it comes to getting out the votes.
After all these years I decided to look thru my blog to see what I wrote and copy and pasted into it.
I started at the oldest page and got to page 60. Around Mar 2006. May do more tomorrow.
I do not understand what I was talking about in more than half of it. Do you?
Discovered when I came up with the ascending order code tracking for the pick 3. That started around Jan 2006. Need to go back again maybe tomorrow and refresh my memory on what I was looking at in the stats from the software in that tracking.
Found a chart I was missing in my wordpad that got accidently deleted. Copied and pasted that back into my wordpad. That was the 1,000 str8 chart in the 3.
Who the hell is this guy "I" I am talking about in here.
That is what makes auto racing exciting and unpredictable.
20 year old part time driver Bayne wins it for the famous Wood Bros.
Need to give LaBonte a pat on the back for the power push on last lap he gave Bayne.
Here they have fed budget legislation in the pipeline to be deliberated on and passed or sent back thru the pipeline. This is time sensitive as it needs to be done by Mar 4th I believe. If nothing is passed gov't shuts down except for critical services.
In Dec 2010 they kept both houses in session almost all the way up to Christmas to pass critical legislation. They went past their usual shut down time for Christmas as it was.
Why are they not keeping both houses in session for this budget bill? They are scheduled for their one week presidental recess. (whoope doo) Like it is a major holiday. All we hear is Reid and Pelosi saying a shut down could happen. It was such a big urgency in Dec. They are acting like it is not a major concern to them this time around.
I know why.
There seems like there would be a senate or state rule or law on the books for this. Seems like a time period would be in there for deliberate absenteeism.
If so the governor should declare the senator as having abandoned his position and directly appoint a replacement.
So what are we going to have now? The Feds stepping in and taking over operation of state functions. Is this an indication the feds may start taking over state operations in any state. Get their foot in the door it expands from there.
An excerpt: bold emphasis mine
Parnell disputed the contention by Jost and others that any refusal by the states to participate in the law is an invitation to the federal government to step in and implement it for them.

Remembered another one I read yesterday.
They are not too happy with the Florida Governor
Oops another update on above topic. Just seen this one
When it comes time to do tough legislation this is what they pull. The state is in a financial crisis and they are needed to deal with it.
They have run out of the peoples money and the Governor is working on remedies.
Legislators are absent to perform their duties.
This book was written in 1935. Seems like it could have been written today by reading the text.
Thus the State "turns every contingency into a resource" for accumulating power in itself, always at the expense of social power; and with this it develops a habit of acquiescence in the people. New generations appear, each temperamentally adjusted – or as I believe our American glossary now has it, "conditioned" – to new increments of State power, and they tend to take the process of continuous accumulation as quite in order. All the State's institutional voices unite in confirming this tendency; they unite in exhibiting the progressive conversion of social power into State power as something not only quite in order, but even as wholesome and necessary for the public good.
Looks like you can download the complete book. I do not know if there is a charge for it.
Read and come to your own conclusion.

Hi Everyone I am passing this email forwarded to me this morning. It's about
a medication that is familiar to many of us.
Note also the FDA 's comments at the end of the message. I received this

Here are the details and I suggest you pass it on to your loved ones and
Subject: Phenylpropanolamine (PPA)
I would like to thank those of you who expressed condolences on the recent
passing of my mother. She suffered a hemorrhagic stroke while she was driving
home from my house at 7:30 and passed away at 8:30. My mother's stroke and
passing was an enormous shock to my family because she did not have any
or risk factors for a stroke. Just the week before she had gone to her doctor
for a check up and received a clean bill of health. She did, however, develop
cold while she was visiting me and had taken Alka-Seltzer Cold Plus for 3
Since her passing, we have learned that Alka-Seltzer is one of the many cold
medicines that contains Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) which can cause hemorrhagic
stokes or cerebral bleeding even with the first use. I am forwarding a list
other medications that currently use PPA.
These medicines are supposedly being recalled but my mother just purchased
medication less than two weeks ago. Pharmaceutical companies have known about
this danger for years, we unfortunately, did not.
