Federal money, federal control. The state governments are hooked on it. They take the money and pass the blame to Washington.

I got 96% and 8 miles. First put Iowa 30 miles to the west, then thought the Miss. River was on its west border, so I really screwed up Missouri. Fuck Iowa and its ethanol subsidy, which pushed another corn mill (Allen's) near me into Chap. 11, possibly 7, this week. We're still out $10k from Townsend for 2 loads of corn from two years ago. Several of our customers lost more than that.

They take the inflated +D polls at face value, they do not take talk up Kasich's efforts in resuscitating the state's economy, that's why I
categorize them that way.

I read that the FBI is in Tripoli "investigating" what happened in Benghazi which protects them "to some degree."*
British journalists have noted that important U.S. agents were whisked away from Libya and sprinkled around Europe which will add another layer of difficulty impossibility for the FBI (in peace and war).

DoT,

I doubt it. There is a concentrated disinformation campaign being waged in Ohio where incidentally, the RNC has a very strong ground game of close to 80k volunteers. This standard pinhead troika tactics - negative polling with press followup, phony conservative phone callers going pessimistic and then there is state GOP which is totally loyalty corrupt and disorganized.

Walter Shapiro again demonstrates why he should be digging ditches rather than writing with a little ditty entitled "goodbye--columbus--why-top-ohio-republicans-think-romney-has-lost-the-state".
If you actually read it the only "people" "thinking" this are unnamed, although I suspect all of their initials are WS, and none of them are quoted, whereas the top Republicans he does mention by name are optimistic Romney will win Ohio.
Wonder what his DNC stipend is.

What happened in Lybia won't impact the elections one iota. None.

Republicans and Fox News rambling about this issue is doing nothing for Romney. When Romney stops the focus on jobs and the economy he loses.

Idiot neocon advisors think that topic has any hold on the average voter. Most voters do not even know this happened.

"The facility in Benghazi was not a regular consulate despite what the press has been saying. It is not clear what exactly that facility was--it does not appear on the Embassy Tripoli website or in the State Department's list of consulates--but appears to have been operated on the bureaucratic sly to enable it to avoid expensive and time-consuming security requirements."

Janet,

No doubt it was a "hunting lodge" housing the MANPAD trackers, the CIA and NSA guys tracking down the insurgents and AQIM militias as well as other nefarious Islamists trying to destabilize Libya via partition. I think it was the 3 day warning, Turkish HUMINT and the quiet security issues that brought Stevens there. He may have been ready to shut it down as well as the safe house and the farm. The bad guys waited until he got there then let loose the hounds of war.

If we had a true press loyal to the people instead of some charlatan this would the Ones undoing in the same way Tehran Hostages were Carters.

Medicare needs to take a cue from Willie Sutton, who reportedly said he robbed banks because that’s where the money was. The big money in Medicare is not to be found in Mr. Ryan’s competition or Mr. Obama’s innovation, but in reducing the cost of treating people in the last year of life, which consumes more than a quarter of the program’s budget.

Did it a couple of more times to see how familiarity vs different order of states made a difference.
Went from 94%, 3 mile in 300 seconds to 90%, 12 miles but only 278 seconds.
The last time the order of states in the middle of the country was tougher but once I got a few placed it was much easier to do the rest because of the previous rounds so I was more inaccurate but quicker.
Obviously I need to find something useful to do.

And to complete my thought at 4:30, we don't know when that last year begins for a lot of people until it ends. You can't walk into a chemo room or cardiac ward and determine simply by looking at or even by their charts and condition how long many of those people have.
Who gets to decide when the clock starts ticking?
And for many the removal of care will turn what might have been two or three decent years into six miserable months.
That last year of life might seem like a luxury to assholes like Rattner and Barry but when it's the last one you've got it might mean more than the previous twenty.
Dehumanizing bastards in their brave new world.
But they're the party that cares about people....in approximately the same way Tyson cares about chickens.

Thomas Collins

A thread or two ago Rick Ballard referred to Ohio absentee ballot request stats showing a significant percentage increase over 2008 for the GOP in each county, and flatline or decreased percentages for the Dems. So I don't think gloom and doom is justified. However, although Jim Messina is puffing the Dems' advantage over the GOP ground game in the battleground states, he is not Baghdad Bobbing the significant improvement the Dems have made over 2004.

Janet

This was linked on FB - More problematic GOP voter forms are found in Florida

They found 100 problematic registrations. "The Florida GOP had contracted out its registration efforts to a newly formed company called Strategic Allied Consulting."

Maybe it would be a great time to push for getting rid of ALL these outfits that take to the street to register people to vote or hand out absentee ballots. IMO people should make the effort to go to the courthouse or the DMV & show ID to register. We could pay for the taxi ride if some people are too poor to take a bus (heck, we pay for drunks on NYE to have free taxi rides). All these sketchy outfits signing people up multiple times. It's no good.

JiB's Bum Bum link served to remind me of one of the great disappointments in life; a lovely female form disfigured with disgusting tats; one of the worst symptoms of the decline of Western Civ.

Doesn't matter, Janet, because voter fraud never happens per Democrats. 100 problematic registrations in all of Florida? There were hundreds of problematic ballots in one precinct in Racine during the Walker recall and no one on my Facebook cared.

Incidentally I've been reading about the administration trying to bully defense companies into not sending out layoff notices for sequestration cuts until after the election.

Sandy,

Did you get a Bishop's letter regarding the election in your church bulletin last Sunday? Because we have 2 special constitutional amendments affecting abortion funding and public funding of religious groups (hospitals, orphanages etc.) we got a really strong letter including a Dolanesque articulation on religious freedom. Talking to my pastor yesterday in private (on the golf course:) he told me that the church has turned away from expecting the current Democrats to do anything on religious freedom, abortion funding, school vouchers, etc. and are going more to the right than ever before. He is a young guy and very outspoken on political views that he says have only been shaped in the last 2 years.

Ig:

Indeed. Between your lovely wife and our dearly departed Bad, they have probably accumulated somewhere close to two decades of "last years" between them in Rattner's formulation.

Bad wasn't supposed to make it to 50. She did. Bad wasn't supposed to see her daughter graduate high school. She did. Bad finally succumbed to cancer, but through the wonderful application of medicine and technology, she was given the chance not just to turn 50 and see her daughter graduate, but to touch the lives of those around her in ways that saving money in any amount couldn't match.

A society concerned with cutting costs at the expense of people like Bad and Ignatz's wife in order to pay for the birth control of Sandra Fluke is a very sick society.

Hi caro! My 25th h.s. reunion is in CT next month. I'm sad to miss it (knee sprain and parental visit) but I am not sorry to miss the political conversations. October is a tense time.

I hope you have a lovely reunion despite any politically-related annoyances that might arise!

I did have the pleasure at my 20th college reunion of meeting a classmate I didn't previously know and, through various signals, managing to mutually figure out our similar political leanings. We now have a secret conservative alumni group going on Facebook. :) Perhaps something fun like this will happen to you, too.

Clarice

Hi, Caro!

Jack is Back!

Hit reminds me that my priest/pastor was surprisingly very outspoken about Sandra Fluke and could not believe that the Democrats gave her front and center exposure in their convention. But then they got gored good in Dolan's invocation which to this day was the greatest articulation of religious freedom I have ever heard.

In all my years of catholic education, ministry in my parishes, even altar boy service, I have never heard priests get so political and outspoken. And they can change minds very subtly without ever mentioning current politics.

I've started telling my daughters that they are revolutionary in that they do not follow the typical conventions of piercing ever possible part of their body (lips, tongue, nose, eyebrows, ears (well, ok), belly button, etc) and getting tats everywhere. Doing so is common place any more. A true act of revolution against conventionality is to not/NOT become a breathing pin-cushion or a tat-artist's latest piece of handiwork.

Democrats lay out second-term wish list for President Obama

“He's got to continue to concentrate on jobs,” Rep. Bill Pascrell said last week as the House was leaving town for a long, pre-election recess.

“I'm hoping he'll do immigration reform,” said Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas).

“We should get back to an energy policy – one that acknowledges that climate change is real,” said Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.).

“The critical issues will be revenue generation … and … a concerted push on immigration reform,” said Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.).

“I think he'd want his administration to start on healthcare,” said Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.).

“Debt and jobs,” Welch said. “That's the fundamental issue: How are we going to deal with the debt in a way that promotes growth?”

A growing number of Democrats, for instance, see immigration as a top issue in a second Obama term, particularly if Latinos vote overwhelmingly for the president – as current polls predict – and Republicans are pressured to compromise or risk losing those voters in every national election for the foreseeable future.

“If we don't do it next year, 2014 is going to be here, and then 2016 is going to be here,” said Cuellar. “So I think we'll have a window like we had a window in 2009 after his election … and I hope we get to do it.”

“By focusing on energy efficiency, where there's a lot of common ground, [we could] create jobs and it would achieve one-third of the goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050,” he said. “That's a big deal.”

Blah, blah, etc.

JiB - NO, we have not--yet. Have not seen a "Catholic Virginian" (weekly diocesan newspaper) in a couple weeks, and quite often such letters will either be located there, or at the Richmond Diocese website.

This Diocese is a strange cat. Was for years dominated by the extraordinarily leftist bishop Sullivan, who encouraged acts of peaceful protest, i.e. chaining oneself to the gates of Yorktown Naval Weapons Stations, etc. Another narcissist, if ever and frankly, one who grated greatly. I will speak of him in disparaging words...

The new Bishop, DiLorenzo, has been methodically turning the Diocese toward a less ideological (and even that would be much more conservative than the previous bisphop), but such changes, including retirement & reassignment of entrenched clergy, takes a LOT of time.

Our particular parish has a wonderfully spiritual and great man as pastor, Father Esteben, (Fr Steve) who is a missionary priest here from the Philippines. Father Steve's experience in the P.I. has created within him, I believe, a deliberate manner of not speaking directly to political matters. I think his formative years, working in some of the difficult southern Philippine islands, have created in him an ability to speak on political topics without seemingly doing so. To me it sounds & appears to be a survival skill, developed in the face of the NPA and Abu Sayyaf. Today, with the depredations of this administration coming to the fore, well, you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Well, then there is Timothy Cardinal Dolan who has stepped up in a way very unfamiliar to my Catholic upbringing, as you also intuit, JiB.

What a great story, Have Blue. We never know when we are meant to be dropped from The Book Of Life and neither do the bureaucrats get a one year flag.


From a guest blogger at Insty:DRAMATICALLY DECLINING DEMOCRATIC VOTER REGISTRATION: Of course you won’t find this widely reported in the mainstream media. Fox News reports that a recent study by a left-leaning think tank, Third Way, shows a precipitous decline in voters registering as Democrat in key swing states. In Ohio, for example, there are 490,000 fewer registered voters than in 2008, 44 percent of whom reside in Cleveland and surrounding Cuyahoga County, where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2:1.

Ohio is not alone. . . . Democratic voter registration decline in eight key swing states outnumbered the Republican decline by a 10-to-one ratio. In Florida, Democratic registration is down 4.9 percent, in Iowa down 9.5 percent. And in New Hampshire, it’s down down 19.7 percent.

Another reason why many recent polls–which oversample Democrats and “weight” results based on 2008 presidential election turnout rates–may indeed be highly misleading.

There's another tell in Pennsylvania. If you look at the RCP display for the Casey/Smith contest, it appears as if Casey has it locked up. Take another look without the Dem larding, using Morning Call, Rasmussen and Susquehanna numbers and Casey is at 47 - that's dead man walking territory for an incumbent and that's a Casey in Pennsylvania. It's roughly the same in Ohio with Brown unable to crack 50% even with the WaPO/Quinnipiac Dem lard.

There are no Pennsylvania seats won by the GOP in '10 listed as tossups and the only Ohio seat (Renacci in OH-16) was redrawn.

It's time for the liars to start the "suddenly tightening" retreat.

2016 has been reposted on the web.

According to Dinesh this is liberal hackers who are trying to tamp down ticket sales. So I recommend you go to the theater.

Yes, Jane. I too heard that statement from D'Souza, and to be honest, I think that most of those motivated to see 2016, as I was, have already been to the cinema. I have looked but have not found a place that tells me how many screens 2016 is still playing on across America. I suspect that the number is way down as there is now only one cinema showing 2016 in my 50 mile area; when I saw 2016 first time, there were six separate cinemas.

At this point, I am more interested in, frankly, getting the 2016 word out to people than ensuring that number of viewers/ticket sales at cinemas stays high--particularly now that the screen number is reduced.

IIRC if you go to the site that hosts that quiz there are more difficult versions, including one that requires you to re-size and rotate the states to their correct orientations prior to placing them.

Also a bunch of other tests.

Harvest Moon tonight folks. It's a clear evening in NE Ahia so it should be shining down and lighting up the night.

Geez, Jane. Is Stockton behind the Iron Curtain or something?

It is solely on the internet.

Now I wonder if SCott knows about it - he has another debate this week. He was due at the event after I left so I didn't have a chance to find out.
