The market will shoot up when we get a jobs program

As Trading Week Ends, Investors’ Concerns Do Not - NYTimes.com

It's headlines like this that make me want to punch out Eric Cantor. Who will pay for a jobs program, Eric? Surely not the billionaires you are protecting. We wouldn't think of asking them to lift a finger. Maybe we can find enough poor people in your district to hurt a bit more so that the next time around they will think twice before pulling the lever for you.

Forget government do it with others on the ground

Get the best resources everywhere and anywhere and show them in the appropriate venue
Staff each kiosk with paid and volunteer folk
Spaces are lego-like and fire-proof and light-weight

Somalia Now Faces Cholera

Somalia Ravaged by Cholera Epidemic, U.N. Says - NYTimes.com

The world is filled with money-hoarding enterprises and individuals who have minds capable of solving the problems of rogue states reduced to criminality, subject to terror rebellions and beset with famine and disease. That we have only ineffective humanitarianism and an incapable power apparatus should give us an agenda worth at least some discussion.

No Deal No Campaign Contribution


Starby has a good idea
No deal no campaign contrbutions
If Grover Norquist can get wingnuts to subscribe to know nothing economics
We can withhold contributions save to those with a clear record of commitment to a bipartisan compromise that will combine revenues with cuts in equal measure
I have already contributed to the one person whose compromise was roundly rejected by the GOP

By all means get those juvenile dealers

Juvenile charged for selling “Scooby snax” | The Franklin County Times: "Oliver said even though the substances weren’t considered illegal right now, they still had the same affects as other hallucinogens and could have serious side effects, which is why the juvenile suspect was charged with reckless endangerment."

The greatest hallucinogens are free and legal. They rise in the mind as signs. They bump up against brute fact. The result is an epiphany of advancement beyond imagining. But if that is not forthcoming, we have preemptive law enforcement going after minors. Happy day.

Competition is a regular bummer

Don’t hate us ’cause we’re beautiful | The Crimson White: "Next year I expect the University of Alabama to up it’s game and make no. 1 on all of the good lists, we’ve got a reputation to uphold. And Princeton Review, take in to account that people might hate on UA in your surveys because they’re jealous."

The Auburn Plainsman - City Council allows chicken ownership: "“You have to have a minimum of 10,000 square feet, and then you can own up to four chickens,” Cotten said. “You can’t own even one without that requirement.”"

Variation on a drug attainment theme

FPD: Atmore woman posed as nurse, arrested | The Atmore Advance: "“We had spoken with the pharmacist there and they said the way the prescription was called in seemed abnormal,” McGraw said. “We began investigating the situation and determined the calls were for fictitious patients.”"

There's more than one way to get drugs. This one did not work.

Shoulders to the wheel

intimologies: Passing in a river:

"… we are all putting our shoulders to the wheel for an end that none of us can catch more than a glimpse at—that which the generations are working out. But we can see that the development of embodied ideas is what it will consist in.

— Peirce, CP 5.402 n2 (1893)"
