Skipwaves

Honey Boo Boo on TV.  (more than just about kid pageants and obesity)

What to do with really STUPID, ignorant, poor people on welfare?  Shall we keep feeding these feral cats or improve our spay and neuter program?

A difficult society issue.  We've seen the Republicans turn their backs on chronically unproductive people, even if their kids ARE sorta cute and they're nice, caring parent, even if not so bright.    But is the GOP right?  Cut them loose to either work or starve? 

  And what does your religion tell you about people who live their lives making one mistake after another?   And your politics?  Do they have a right to remain dumb and dependent on the goodwill of others?

Report: Ahmadinejad to Meet with Occupy Wall Street

1:12 PM, Sep 24, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER

Ahmadinejad Mahmoud Columbia
A report today in an official outlet of the Iranian regime claims that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, will meet with members of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Ahmadinejad is currently in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly, where these reported meetings will take place.

"Ahmadinejad is also set to meet American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites, including Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalist protestors, despite the ongoing efforts made by the pro-Zionist lobbies to prevent direct link between American people and the Iranian president," the Iranian organ Fars News reports.

Earlier this year American professors gathered in Tehran to discuss the supposed virtues of the Occupy wall Street movement.

In New York, the Iranian president has several interviews lined up. "President Ahmadinejad has also accepted the interview requests made by several news networks, including CNN, CBS and Russia Today (RT)," Fars reports.

Radioman:  Will he speak his own views or just talking points like most TV people allow from US political surragates?

Moreover, if war with Iran is imminent, will Occupy's cuddling up with Iran now seem like cuddling up with pre-WWII's Adolph Hitler?

McCaskill last Friday Debate with Akin....she's already declaring Victory 

When the Missouri Senate candidates faced off for their first general election debate Friday morning, the first question broached GOP Rep. Todd Akin's controversial comments on rape -- and Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill said that it wasn't what Akin said, but what he believes, that's the problem. But while both candidates weighed in on the controversy when asked, no one broached the topic again during the rest of the debate.

The debate, which took place at the Missouri Press Association convention and was moderated by the Associated Press's David Lieb, also included Libertarian candidate Jonathan Dine.

The first question dove into Akin's comments that "legitimate" rape rarely results in pregnancy -- remarks that resulted in widespread GOP calls for him to resign from the race, as well as the National Republican Senatorial Committee and Crossroads GPS pulling funding from the race.

Akin pivoted quickly in his answer on the comments, noting that he had addressed them repeatedly. "I don't believe that this election overall is about talk," he said, but "two visions of what America really is."

"I think Congressman Akin's comments opened the windows to his views on Missourians," said McCaskill in answering the question. "I believe his view is extreme, and out of the mainstream." She went on to say that Akin has other extreme views, saying he wants to do away things like student loans and the school lunch program.

After addressing the Akin controversy in her answer to the question, McCaskill did not proactively bring it up again in the course of the debate -- possibly holding her fire until the drop-dead deadline for Akin to bow out of the race -- September 25 -- has passed. Akin seems unlikely to step aside at this late date.

There were no notable missteps during the debate, in which the two largely stuck to their campaign themes: McCaskill hammered on Akin as extreme and herself as moderate, while Akin repeatedly emphasized a "less government" philosophy and tied McCaskill to President Obama, who is unpopular in the state.

GOP Ends session with a harmful Environmental Bill
Despite its title, the bill isn't just about the coal industry: it repackages four previously passed House GOP bills, plus adds in another one, aimed at blocking carbon pollution standards. Specifically, the package would eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency's clean car standards, nullify the EPA's mercury and air toxic standards, weaken the Clean Water Act and block efforts to reduce damage from coal mining.
GOP: the party of destruction!   TIME FOR THAT VETO PEN, PRESIDENT OBAMA!
