Wapo accts like this is some HUGE loss for the Republicanos.

I don’t think it necessarily is, all that we will find out, all too likely, is that the D deeded those two seats to the Mod Rep wing, Ages ago.

Or they surprise me… and make a huge run for the seat.


Sen. Olympia Snowe won’t run for reelection

Sen. Olympia Snowe, a Republican from Maine, has decided not to run for reelection this fall. Snowe’s retirement represents a major setback for the GOP’s efforts to regain a majority in the Senate. As a moderate Republican, she may have been the party’s only hope to hold a seat in the strongly blue state. . . . . .

OccupyMN Helps Save Home From Foreclosure

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minneapolis man’s home has been saved from foreclosure, and he’s giving part of the credit to Occupy Minnesota protesters.

Bobby Hull’s lender agreed to renegotiate his mortgage. Hull says the nationwide Occupy movement has made a difference.

Just one look at the outside of Hull’s home and you can tell a battle has been fought there. It’s where Occupy Minnesota and Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC) came together to help save his home.

“It’s been a family home,” Hull said. “I got nine brothers and sisters, and a lot of them come back home; and some of their children come back home.”

Hull bought the home from his mother in 1971. In 2009 he got sick, and it nearly destroyed his business as a general contractor. It also forced him into foreclosure.

“I was at the end, I was done,” he said. “I was quitting.”

Attempts to modify his loan did not work, nor did filing bankruptcy. He was packing his belongings, until representatives from Occupy Minnesota and NOC rang the doorbell.

“They went around, they informed all my neighbors, getting my neighbors all involved; they encouraged me to stand up,” Hull said.

Occupy Minnesota put up a foreclosure-free zone fence around the entire block.

“You walk around my block and every neighbor around here will stand up right now and tell you Bobby’s not leaving,” Hull said.

They also marched and protested outside the banks, and after three months, the protesters eventually got them to listen.

“The banks immediate response was … ‘It’s not our responsibility,’ and it went from that to ‘Now we’ll fix it for you,’ because of public pressure and because communities stood with Bobby,” said Nick Espinosa, a spokesperson for Occupy Minnesota.

Hull won his home three days after the redemption period.

Gen. McCaffrey privately briefs NBC execs on war with Iran

Apparently, not only does NBC continue to present McCaffrey to its viewers as some sort of objective analyst, but NBC News executives use him as some kind of private consultant and briefer on the news. On January 12, 2012, McCaffrey presented a seminar to roughly 20 NBC executives and producers — including NBC News President Steve Capus — entitled “Iran, Nukes & Oil: The Gulf Confrontation.” We’ve obtained the Power Point document McCaffrey prepared and distributed for his presentation, and in it, he all but predicts war with Iran within the next 90 days: one that is likely to be started by them. The first page of the breathlessly hawkish document is entitled “Iran & the Gulf: Creeping Toward War,”

Romney wins big in Arizona, AP says

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was headed for a decisive victory in Arizona Tuesday night, where he had the support of the state’s governor, Jan Brewer (R), and a sizable contingent of Mormon voters.

In Michigan, however, polls showed Rick Santorum running even with Romney. . . . . .

Let’s be honest, you and I both know what it’s like, I’m sure IOZ will attest to this too, wanting more than ANYTHING to wear one of those back-home sweater vests we all have out in public, but are forced underground due to the hostility. Right now in cities and towns all across America there are native Pennsylvanians, cautiously parading around their homes with blinds drawn , the only place they feel safe among trusted friends in the privacy of their own homes where they can don and move about in the traditional PA sweater vestiture.

This is what Rick Santorum’s campaign means to me, and dare I say all of us. 😆

I know they BOTH project (emphasis on “project”) latter day Dorothy Day Catholicism, but I am SO FUCKING TIRED OF ALL OF THEM… I hope they bite the dust.

They can go pray.

They did merge in post census reapportionment.
She had one memorable moment around foreclosure mills and robosigning Stay in Your Homes! Don’t Leave! Etc.

Obviously she and Kuc applying the same thinking with regards to their seats. LOL. And loyalty to the DP. Don’t Leave! Help is on the Way! ETC.

Crickets from either one of them on Obby’s recent mortgage settlement deals, tho. Oh I’m sure they had the after-hours empty-chambers blowhardia and are peddling it back home, but you know, ETC.

I agree… she did a bit on foreclosures… but she is a major, major whack job on stem cell, to say nothing of abortion. And Kuc, sick little Quisling imo. He with his fake bible toting catholicism and the New Agey New Wif can go fuck themselves. Take Kaptur along. Fuck sandwich.

High schools to partner with high-tech firms – 6-year programs to offer high school diplomas, associate degrees; some enrollment details not settled

“I got there were politics. Doesn’t mean there will be politics in the future,” Emanuel said at a news conference at Chicago Vocational Career Academy, a high school in the Calumet Heights neighborhood where Motorola Solutions will help design the curriculum.

At the new South West Area High School, slated to open for the first time in the fall in the Ashburn neighborhood, the enrollment process has not yet been established for the IBM-designed program , Sainvilus said. The freshman class is expected to include 230 students, she said.

Lake View High School, where Microsoft will help set the program, and Corliss, where Verizon will partner with CPS , are neighborhood schools that will accept as many applicants from their areas as they get.

The fifth school, Michele Clark, is a selective enrollment high school in South Austin where students have already tested in for next year, Sainvilus said. Michele Clark students who don’t want to take part in the Cisco -linked technology career program will be given a chance to go to another school.

But you know the parents are fucking salivating. As are some children (others are disinterested or fully horrified, but the economy the way it is, they are stuck).

I don’t know if you ever saw the school in Breaking Bad, the TV series set in Albequerque that has a former hi-tech star – back ground at Sandia Labs – now HS science teacher as the focus… the very school they use was built by Intel.

And you know the parents just talk about that all the time.

From a Politico piece–

5 takeaways from Arizona and Michigan

5) Ron Paul is now seen as a Romney surrogate

This is a bit of a problem for a movement candidate: Paul, whose theory of the case has rested on amassing delegates through a caucuses-focused strategy, has become essentially an afterthought because of the way he is now viewed.

The Texas congressman spent months in the debates essentially deflecting other candidates’ shots at Romney. That spirit of kinship burst out into the open with a series of news stories focused on the relationship that has developed between Romney and Paul, and their wives, over the months of campaigning.

Theories abound as to what’s driving this. Among them: Paul wants his voice heard at the convention, he’s trying to get his son Rand on the ticket, he’s working to ensure Rand’s future in 2016.

Whatever the reason, the narrative is taking root that Paul is essentially in this to take down Romney’s rivals, as he airs negative ads against them and siphons votes away. His aides vigorously deny this, but the claim gets repeated enough now that it has overshadowed the role Paul once played in the race.

Hangs together, but FFS, it’s not a matter of perception, it is what it is.

I don’t see the Paul kid having any national appeal whatsoever, quite aside from the question of whether his father has leverage which clearly he does not…The kid will be lucky to maintain a peripheral caging role like the many others we’ve mentioned tonite … (Santorum being a prime set-to-pasture postercalf example, Kuc, Kaptur, etc, able to lounge around till -~gasp ~ competitive conditions set in)

marisacat - 28 February 2012

Supposedly the wives, Romney and Paul, have become friends on the campaign trail.

I think Ron Paul holds a position not dissimilar to Kuc in the DP. Sure he makes noise on a few things, but really, he goes along. As in, with Romney, where he goes along BIGTIME.

Occupy Wall Street’ … opens with the observation that ‘mass gatherings associated with public protest movements can have disruptive effects on transportation, commercial, and government services, especially when staged in major metropolitan areas.’ … The five-page report – contained in 5 million newly leaked documents examined by Rolling Stone in an investigative partnership with WikiLeaks – goes on to sum up the history of Occupy Wall Street and assess its ‘impact’ on everything from financial services to government facilities.”

Mazda Enlists Kids to Market Cars In Exchange for Library Books

From the Washington Post:

The sales pitch is part of the National Education Association’s “Read Across America tour — Driven by Mazda,” which arrived at Alexandria’s James K. Polk Elementary School on Tuesday.

It was a hybrid event: a celebration of reading, a fundraiser for public-school libraries, and an opportunity to market Mazdas to the pint-size set. While they don’t buy many cars themselves, they have direct access to parents who do.

According to the National Education Association’s website [1], Mazda and Universal Pictures are teaming up to raise up to $1 million for public school libraries. The catch, though, is that public school libraries will get $25 every test-drive of a Mazda vehicle between Feb. 21 and April 2, 2012. So, in order to get the money, schools will need to get parents to go test-drive the cars —hence the need to enlist a fleet of mini-marketers.

[1] Doesn’t get much nastier than this, for example this snickering, Oh Kiddle you are a no one, …destined for about 15 minutes of relevance in life , link: Ready for your 15 minutes of Fame? …. go to SchoolTube[!!!!!] ( and, you are a NASTY Despicable Fleck of Feces, Arne Duncan, despite the $Zionist$ Coded , frothy blather on your Rahm/OBombster/ChiTown , dished up ‘bio’. Of course you live in Arlington, VA, we wouldn’t expect otherwise, outside of McClean , etc..)

Of course if the States weren’t thieving money from the kiddles, and the Global CorpGov Masters weren’t sitting on tons of cash and refusing living wage, bearable jawbs and vocations to the kiddles parents, etc., …..none of this would be necessary.

Busy, sick congress critters

[W]ithin the next 48 hours, the Senate will likely vote on a measure introduced by Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) that would not only overturn the birth control coverage benefit, but would undermine the entire notion of health insurance.

The Blunt proposal says that employers and insurance companies do not have to provide coverage for ANY essential health service that they object to on the basis of personal religious belief or moral convictions which can include birth control, maternity care, HIV/AIDS treatment, mammograms, cancer screenings, you name it. . . . .

There’s a ballot measure coming in WA state (Vancouver, WA) is right across the bridge for us. It would end the exclusive rights of WA state stores to sell hard liquor, so it would finally be available in this neck of the woods in grocery stores.

I actually find the OR state-run stores (it’s state-run stores only for hard liquor here, too) to be well-run and friendly, but mr_xeno is ecstatic at the thought of being able to drive fifteen minutes and buy bourbon, et al at the Safeway between the evil hours of 7PM and 7AM. Not to mention on Sundays… 👿

oh I remember state run access in Montreal when I vsited… Make sure you get enough early in the day and all that…

I was thinking the other day about how liquor was restricted from purchase on election day. Not sure it was limited to the state either… but markets, even little out fo the way corner markets… would cover the shelves… and I think actual liquor stores were shut..

Geesh why bother.

I’ve heard that PA is now allowing hard liquor and wine outside of the State Stores but now they have creepy, humiliating sniffer device that a person literally has to breath on and pass muster first (not sure whether that’s the only option or not).

marisacat - 3 March 2012

so, in buying liquor, not just hard but wine as well, it is PRESUMED you are, or at least may be!, drunk?

Poor Americans. Convicted of felonies when they haven’t even left home. Basically.

What bullshite.

diane - 3 March 2012

Well, it is PA after all, where the STATE PArents not only would like mandatory vagina probings for “slut” females, but would also require that it’s verbally certified that the “slut” has refused to view the ultrasound (legally required to be shoved in front of their faces), and listen to the fetal heartbeat, if there is one. That “slut” certification would be documented in the “slut”s [IT!!!] Medical Record Forever, and once IT Med records are fully enforced, this would ease things for “slut” stalkers like that sow Limbaugh – “slut”s would have nowhere to hide – as we all know IT “personal” databases are vetting grounds for our CorpGov and “slut” stalker Fwends to sort the “sluts” and other terrerists from the totally docile, the already lobotomized, and the CorpGov, Penis Sucker Wannabees.

In addition, the doctor or technician who performs the ultrasound would have to verify in writing whether the woman accepted or refused opportunities to view the image of listen to the fetal heartbeat when it’s present and detectable. That documentation would be placed in the woman’s permanent medical record.

Critics further charge that the bill would require women, who already receive an ultrasound when they seek an abortion, to go through what would most likely be a second, medically unnecessary procedure.

Oh, but I’m sorry, I digress! (oh and looks like the hard liquor is still only in the State Stores):

Here’s how the wine kiosks work:
• Patrons slide a driver’s license into the machine to prove they are at least 21.

A camera tied into the Liquor Control Board’s central office ensures the person buying the wine and the license match.

• The patron breathes into a special pad that measures blood-alcohol level. Any reading of .05 or higher — which is .03 below the level at which a driver is considered impaired in Pennsylvania — will end the transaction.

• Invalid matches between the driver’s license and the patron also will halt a transaction, as will an invalid credit or debit card.

• The machine will not accept cash.

• It will operate from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

((I’m sure once the State PArents manage to force that legislation, they could mehbe update the sniffer devices to perform some of the “slut” stalking, all at one Happy Little Public Kioski!)

what a ton of shit to buy a bottle of hard liquor.

We are all thisclose to being invalid.

A few weeks after I got out of the hosptial it occurred to me to go thru the hoops at the Walgreen’s website and have my scripts sent to me… sigh. So I go thru it all… even things like “where did you live before the address you are at now?” and the upshot was,

“We cannot verify you”.

It has occurred to me that it was because I no longer have a current Cal ID.

what a ton of shit to buy a bottle of hard liquor.

That’s not the hard liquor (that’s still sold only in the caged State Stores), that’s just for fricken wine purchases.

The States are really getting Nasty about stalking prescription data (Jeralyn has been following that one)

marisacat - 3 March 2012

Well the reality is all the different lobbies are working against each other. Alcohol, at least in states like Cali where you just go to the damned market or liquor store and buy, your face is your passport basically unless you look too young (or you ARE too young), but that lobby is part of the big fight, at the Federal level, over medicinal MJ…. and the tobacco industry joins the liquor lobby against medical MJ… .

What is UNREPORTED is that the illegal drug trade lobbies as well. In state capitals as well as Federally.

Hell they don’t even allow for the “re-importation” of prescription ddrugs anymore… no quick bus rides over t Canada or dropping into Tijuana…

The whole thing is a crock and makes me viciously angry.

And some division of … think it was Quicken.

That’s it.

In the campaign Slob called a woman reporter who asked an uncomfortable question, SWEETIE, and I was so embarrassed at the hordes of fucking women and pundit women who made sure they were on TV claiming it was not inappropriate, demeaning, rude or whatever else.

When I saw the testimony of Fluke BEFORE RushSlob came after her, all I could think was, Where the hell did the Democrats find such a BLOODLESS woman.

But it doesn’t matter.. not up against the RIGGING. The entirely fke “battle”. which frankly looks like the massively over-copied Sisten (Sistine?) chapel ceiling. In reality. (Oh let me touch the finger of Gawdddddddddddddddddddddddd)

And why bother calling Rush a sow? Isn’t that the female pig? Mother pig? A supposed pejorative for women?

Rush is part of a whole.

I mean, really, Slob is going to run against Rush, as he exerts his own black all too fucked and fundie at the core authoritarianism which is loaded with broadsides against women – – and against the Koch brothers.

Yeah so real. Big whoop.

Give me the cadres of Eastern European women who protest in Europe, masses of bleached blonde hair, naked or nearly naked. They take all the words and own them.

diane - 3 March 2012

and I have no doubt that PA was, one of, or the, main pipe vine[s] …down to Florida, ……through which sow Rush received his “mood enhancers” ……. which has, … how many wimmins in this country? …locked up, … when they actually started using them …..for real pain.

diane - 3 March 2012

But it doesn’t matter.. not up against the RIGGING.

It matters to the females who are paralyzed by his words, and I don’t believe that can be justified away by those of us who live/have lived, in an environment (culture, parents, economic status, schools, government, etc.) where we were able to somewhat escape that effect, saying it doesn’t mean anything at the end of the day, it can mean countless attempted rapes, in a neighborhood where no one is on the victims side..

Well, funky as it may seem, the point in calling Rush a sow is that it’s something he would be truly insulted by,..simple as that. Yeah it isn’t at all PC …but it is something that would truly cut. I apologize for the knee jerk, but can’t say that if I were face to face with him, I wouldn’t call him that, whatever the word logically means, absent knee jerk emotional familiarity with words meant to slice someone down.

marisacat - 3 March 2012

Honestly I don’t care about PC.

And the wimmens can all relax. Big Rush apologised. Wrong choice of words he never meant to attack the dreary bloodless woman individually.

Sorry, it just makes me laugh.

marisacat - 3 March 2012

Oh here is what REALLY pissses me off: The fuckign Democrats USED a 3rd year law student at a prestigious university as SHE IS CLEAN ENOUGH FOR THEM.

I am sorry, Rush is hardly the problem.

diane - 3 March 2012

I somewhat get your point hon, but whether the woman was “bloodless and dreary” or not, (and even if she is boring etc., in her Very YOUNG and un”formed” years, it doesn’t exonerate her being nationally tagged as a slut for it), it has nothing to do with the effect on scores of woman not privy to the whole set up, who will most definitely receive some sort of domestic fall out … from the affair.

Of course Rush isn’t the problem, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t done a stunning amount of damage, whether tangibly visible or not (I felt it, like a bullet but then maybe I’m too soft? nobody?), and shouldn’t be, metaphorically Choked Off.

Gotta run, will check back ….

marisacat - 3 March 2012

I am not interested in exonerating anyone. Which is my point. Focus on Rush is missing what is happening. Rush is barely incidental.

Focus on Rush allows Fluke to actually say what he said HURT her (look at her quotes, she was hurt before she got 1, upset and 2, angry). what a waste. What an elevation of Rush.

It allows Patty Murray and so many others to run 5 dollar fundraisers… it allows Slob to play feminist/Daddy.

It is part of diverting women.

It’s all about elections. And ntohing more.

A $250 Million Fraud Scheme Finds a Path to Brighton Beach
Published: February 29, 2012

The plot involved 10 doctors, 9 separate clinics in New York City and 105 different corporations, all in service of a health care fraud ring that federal authorities say conspired to steal more than a quarter of a billion dollars from insurance companies. And when the details were announced on Wednesday, they cast an unflattering spotlight on how immigrants from the former Soviet Union 😆 have often dominated such schemes in the city.

This one, like many others, was rooted in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, the locus of the city’s Russian-speaking immigrant population, many of whom grew up under a Communist 😯 system that bred disdain for the rules and a willingness to cheat to get around them.

Russians! Soviets! Communists!
That’s All Folks! Move Along!

Brighton Beach has one of the highest rates of health care fraud in the nation, according to federal statistics.

😆 In fact, an analysis of data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that regulates those two programs, shows that more health care providers in the Brighton Beach ZIP code are currently barred from the programs for malfeasance than in almost any other ZIP code in the United States. (The top spot is in southern Florida, with its high proportion of older residents.)

Just LMAO. This article is the best thing that converted more Jews to Communists with fabulous condo’s in New York and Florida than, Ohhhh at LEAST since Obby appointed Bruce Ratner to save GM. Fucking hilarious.

marisacat - 29 February 2012

I’ll bet plenty of Brighton Beach is Russia by way of Israel. Or any number of other routes.

And the article doesn’t even go near the realestate development fraud, the big projects and their developers there (**) , from the fraud in the huge condo development bond giveaways,thru the construction financing thru pre-sales commitments, thru the residential mortgage fraud, thru the Section 8 and ADA set-asides and on and on thru tax abatements and on…

No matter, they’re SPESHUL..

(** Big Yeshiva University tithers early in on Madoffs scam, cuts to Bibi and development in Israel, big tither’s , no surprise, to Schumer, Rahm, Shelly Silver, the trinkets Bill Hillary and Obama. )

LOL, l say just deed the whole joint over for 24 bucks and a small service charge, maybe 3 dollars, you know, which could be waived..

Wall Street Bonus Withdrawal Means Trading Aspen for Coupons
By Max Abelson –

Andrew Schiff was sitting in a traffic jam in California ❗ this month after giving a speech at an investment conference about gold. He turned off the satellite radio, got out of the car and screamed a profanity.

“I’m not Zen at all, and when I’m freaking out about the situation, where I’m stuck like a rat in a trap on a highway with no way to get out, it’s very hard,” Schiff, director of marketing for broker-dealer Euro Pacific Capital Inc., said in an interview.

Schiff, 46, is facing another kind of jam this year: Paid a lower bonus, he said the $350,000 he earns, enough to put him in the country’s top 1 percent by income, doesn’t cover his family’s private-school tuition, a Kent, Connecticut, summer rental and the upgrade they would like from their 1,200-square- foot Brooklyn duplex.

“I feel stuck,” Schiff said. “The New York that I wanted to have is still just beyond my reach.”

The smaller bonus checks that hit accounts across the financial-services industry this month are making it difficult to maintain the lifestyles that Wall Street workers expect, according to interviews with bankers and their accountants, therapists, advisers and headhunters.

“People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress,” said Alan Dlugash, a partner at accounting firm Marks Paneth & Shron LLP in New York who specializes in financial planning for the wealthy. “Could you imagine what it’s like to say I got three kids in private school, I have to think about pulling them out? How do you do that?”

Bonus Caps

Facing a slump in revenue from investment banking and trading, Wall Street firms have trimmed 2011 discretionary pay. At Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) and Barclays Capital, the cuts were at least 25 percent. Morgan Stanley (MS) capped cash bonuses at $125,000, and Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) increased the percentage of deferred pay.

Wall Street’s cash bonus pool fell by 14 percent last year to $19.7 billion, the lowest since 2008, 🙄 according to projections by New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

“It’s a disaster,” said Ilana Weinstein, chief executive officer of New York-based search firm IDW Group LLC. “The entire construct of compensation has changed.”

Most people can only dream of Wall Street’s shrinking paychecks. Median household income in 2010 was $49,445, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, lower than the previous year and less than 1 percent of Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein’s $7 million restricted-stock bonus for 2011. The percentage of Americans living in poverty climbed to 15.1 percent, the highest in almost two decades.

House of Mirth

Comfortable New Yorkers assessing their discomforts is at least as old as Edith Wharton’s 1905 novel “The House of Mirth,” whose heroine Lily Bart said “the only way not to think about money is to have a great deal of it.”

Wall Street headhunter Daniel Arbeeny said his “income has gone down tremendously.” On a recent Sunday, he drove to Fairway Market in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn to buy discounted salmon for $5.99 a pound.

“They have a circular that they leave in front of the buildings in our neighborhood,” said Arbeeny, 49, who lives in nearby Cobble Hill, namesake for a line of pebbled-leather Kate Spade handbags. “We sit there, and I look through all of them to find out where it’s worth going.”

$17,000 on Dogs

Executive-search veterans who work with hedge funds and banks make about $500,000 in good years, said Arbeeny, managing principal at New York-based CMF Partners LLC, declining to discuss specifics about his own income. He said he no longer goes on annual ski trips to Whistler (WB), Tahoe or Aspen.

He reads other supermarket circulars to find good prices for his favorite cereal, Wheat Chex.

“Wow, did I waste a lot of money,” Arbeeny said.

Richard Scheiner, 58, a real-estate investor and hedge-fund manager, said most people on Wall Street don’t save.

“When their means are cut, they’re stuck,” said Scheiner, whose New York-based hedge fund, Lane Gate Partners LLC, was down about 15 percent last year. “Not so much an issue for me and my wife because we’ve always saved.” 😆

Scheiner said he spends about $500 a month to park one of his two Audis in a garage and at least $7,500 a year each for memberships at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester and a gun club in upstate New York. A labradoodle named Zelda and a rescued bichon frise, Duke, cost $17,000 a year, including food, health care, boarding and a daily dog-walker who charges $17 each per outing, he said. …….

BigJournalism.com, “In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart. Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles. We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior. Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

BooHooHooMan - 1 March 2012

Josh Marshall March 1, 2012, 10:24 AM

I was … I am stunned to hear of the death of Andrew Breitbart. I don’t think there’s much of anything I agreed with him about, which is an understatement. My interactions with him were first friendly, then later heated and vexed, though maybe not unfriendly even then. He tweeted something at me yesterday, which I ignored. There are some people who live for the fight. It’s something I try not to be part of. Yet it’s a big, punchy, vivid and outrageously honorable tradition in the American public square. I cannot think of many people who lived more out loud than he did, more in primary colors. I remember thinking at some points even the name — the way it rolls off your tongue — has this rough, brickbat, unsmoothable sound: Breit / Bart.

Crikey. here Marshall ignored his tweet and now the poor man is dead. 😯 A lesson to us all, dare I say. Not exactly sure what that lesson is, but prolly something real solemn an’ all, like, oh, I dunno,
How precious a tweetback can be? OR If it’s your last day to live, FFS don’t be tweeting Josh “The Dem Cupcake” Marshall?

You know, SOMETHING…

The Pwog-Blog fribble seems split into three camps:
1. ) Those cheering at a level like they just shot Mussolini
2. ) The proper decorum types, those who wouldn’t have actually shot nor hung Mussolini, you know, but the types who resent an unruly crowd when trying to get a souvenir photograph.
3. ) the Marshall mallow variety varying only slightly in motive of attributing some kind of significance to the dead Stalwart. The key of course being a minor guest slot tonite with some decent sandwiches in the green room.

The Catholic plant at Busininess Insider .. omigod! Actually and really like, like you know, tweeted Breitbart just last night! Like Really!


And strangely enough he collapsed on a public street and, wait for it, someone did see it! And called for help!

All of this is shocking and revealing.

We refuse to pay for the crisis created by the 1%. We refuse to accept the dismantling of our schools and universities, while the banks and corporations make record profits. We refuse to accept educational re-segregation, massive tuition increases, outrageous student debt, and increasing privatization and corporatization.

They got bailed out and we got sold out. But through nationally coordinated mass action we can and will turn back the tide of austerity.

We call on all students, teachers, workers, and parents from all levels of education —pre-K-12 through higher education, in public and private institutions—and all Occupy assemblies, labor unions, and organizations of oppressed communities, to mobilize on March 1st, 2012 across the country to tell those in power: The resources exist for high-quality education for all. If we make the rich and the corporations pay we can reverse the budget cuts, tuition hikes, and attacks on job security, and fully fund public education and social services.

This is a call to work together, but it is up to each school and organization to determine what local and regional actions—such as strikes, walkouts, occupations, marches, etc.—they will take to say no to business as usual.

We have the momentum, the numbers, and the determination to win. Education is not for sale. Let’s take back our schools. Let’s make history.

Global Student Power

Yesterday, while Occupy groups in over 80 cities across the world were holding successful direct actions to Shut Down the Corporations, students in Spain continued their fight against cuts in education by occupying university buildings. Solidarity protests have erupted across Europe after police violently supressed peaceful student demonstrations in Valencia, which has seen as many as 60,000 people in the streets.
[stunning photo to warm a heart, ;0)]

10,000s are in the streets of Barcelona again today. The student protesters in Spain have also received solidarity from student organizers in the United States. From New York Students Rising:


We stand in active solidarity with the students and people of Valencia, Spain. and condemn the arrests and beating of peaceful protesters taking a stand against cuts to education.

The issues the students in Valencia address are ones that speak to the global nature of our struggle. All over the world we see local governments fail to fund universities, schools, and the other basic needs of the people.As people begin to protest and resist injustices, police attempt to repress the emergence of true democracy led by the people.

Students of the City University of New York, University of California-Davis, and many other campuses have been arrested, beaten, and pepper sprayed during protests done in an increasingly securitized university. However, overt repression represents the failure of subtle forms of social control. As tacit consent and docility are replaced by protest and resistance, the only way to maintain the social order is through the baton and riot shield.What it shows is that we are breaking through and making real gains in our struggle.

Students in Valencia, your resilience, as witnessed by the wave of protests in recent days, gives us resolve to continue, the strength to struggle further, and the courage to dream bigger. Our struggle is one. Solidarity in the streets!

uh oh, we’re talkin theNYT’s “Territory” … :0) … :

“M5 “ New York Students Rising – March 5th, 2012

huh? :0):

On March 5th, students from across New York State – from Buffalo to New York City – will converge on the New York State Capitol in Albany and demand that our elected officials recognize that education is a RIGHT not a privilege.

For years, SUNY and CUNY students have seen the quality of their education decline in lock step with the decline of New York State’s financial support for these institutions. At the same time, we’ve seen our schools’ leaders and elected leaders push and implement measures that would increase the cost of our school. They demand that we pay more for less while passing the costs of public higher education onto working-class and middle-class students. We are being burdened with massive amounts of student loan debt while our leaders seek to please campaign benefactors.

On March 5th, students will speak with one voice to say that we will not stand for gimmicks like NYSUNY2020. We demand that the State of New York repeals NYSUNY2020. We demand that the State Assembly and Senate implement a tuition freeze and truly represent us. We demand a full restoration and expansion of state funding to CUNY and SUNY, TAP, and EOP.

Join us for a day filled with direct action against the elites who ignore us. Join us for a day filled with education about the lack of student participation in university governance, the privatization of higher education, and institutionalized racism in CUNY and SUNY. Together we will learn about each other, our shared struggle, and the true strength of student organization.

Buses will be leaving from Buffalo, Purchase, New Paltz, Binghamton, Oswego/Syracuse, and locations across New York City to arrive at the Capitol at 1:00PM and the activities of the day will kick off at 2:00PM with a press conference/rally in the Millionaire Dollar Staircase.

(meant to end the italics at NYT’s Territory…. but now I’ve become unsure as to whether the mistake was actually better … it kind of reminds me of getting in the face of an NYT VIP and stating:
And I quote, the youth in the state of New York, particularly in the ‘Not Connected’ and Historically, ‘poorer areas’ are being FUCKED. When, … exactly, do you think Freedom from Fear of Poverty and Homelessness, will begin?. When will you insatiable mother fuckers share wellbeing?)
