I forgot to ask-the Ontario provincial election. How was this bad news for Obama?
Looks like the primary season is going to be …interesting.
Florida moved its primary to Jan 31, and in response South Carolina has gone for Jan 21 and Nevada for Jan 18, and of course Iowa and New Hampshire will be before that. However, under the GOP rules (which Florida breaks) no state except the first four can hold a primary before March 6, so unless other states are going to follow Florida’s lead, there will be a five week gap between Jan 31 and March 6.
teh stoopid has been thick around here lately, Mrs. Sarah. Where the hellya been?
Gabby’s back. And looking better and better.
(Hufflepuff link. But worth it.)
To the poutraged left (firebaggers) & the pretend left (teabaggers), who were trolling here about how “Obama stabbed Tammy Duckworth in the back”, read this from that “stabbed in the back” woman and weep.
Ouch. Go Tammy. :)
K-Thug endorses Occupy Wall Street.
12 UK banks downgraded by moody’s.
The reason ? They are unlikely to get gobinment bail-outs.
And of course, the downgrade did not “reflect a deterioration in the financial strength of the banking system”.

Hello dear. Things have been a little busy, but I have a few days off so I’m going to be in a whirl of posting, particularly as I promised AsiangrrlMN a story.
How are you?
tomorrow is my last treatment – it has been an experience I would have happily lived without.
Have not been sleeping well for a couple of weeks now & even the oxycodon is not helping.
@amk: My bank here in Europe just got shut down. It operated in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg, and the respective governments have taken the bank over, recapitalized the three new banks, and operations continue without a hitch. No branches closed, no employees fired.
The shareholders were completely wiped out, overnight. I don’t think they have officially fired the executives or the board of directors yet, but they all work for the government now.
That was refreshing.
Edit for clarity – I did not own the bank, just did my banking there. But as a taxpayer I suppose I am one of the owners now.
Daniel Drezner’s Twitter feed is the awesome right now. Possibly more appropriate posting for Erev Yom Kippur later. You guys have been warned.
(Evil Vanquished! Evil Vanquished!)
Great to know the banks are now in safer hands and stricter regulations.
In that same LG&M thread:
Glorious because it was so mean.
Anybody else get their George Soros award notification? This was in my *cough*spam*cough* email:
Hello Dear you have been selected/qualify for Grant sum of $900,000.00 payment for human growth, Business and Community Development in the ongoing GEORGE SOROS Empowerment Award established in 1983, supported by EBID Bank and SANTANDER Bank.

This is a better song than that other one you put up a few days ago. Get a much better idea of why she is a star.

I just bought Florence + The Machine’s Lungs album (at only 2 years old, that’s basically a brand-new record by my standards). And I’m really enjoying it. The two songs that got radio play are obviously standouts, but the whole thing offers diverse sounds and some pretty rich arrangements. Great drumming.
