Things to Know - 8 November

1.  History may be in the offing.  Georgia will have an opportunity to inch its way into the 20th Century (19th century by some accounts):


2.  The Keystone Pipeline has pitted Obama against his loyal young supporters who worked form him in his last election.  The promise to strike big gains for the improvement of the environment, if not carried out be turning down the pipeline, may be very bad news for the Obama campaign:

3.  If you have time, read this one through to the end.   The OWS has an affect of giving a platform to activist and gifted writers to come forth with, in this case, a critical manifesto.   I really like it.  It can be taken as a very thoughtful piece written with passion, or it can be seen as one brick in the wall that forms a new socio-economic system:

4.  A creative way of working around a foreclosure to keep the owners in the property and avoiding neighborhood blight.  How does it reg received by a couple of stiff-necked and non-creative GeeOpiers?:

5.  Georgia's recent immigration law is hammering its bureaucracy and creating unintended consequences.  One problem, as we know is a lack of workers to pick the crops, and this in another one.  Stay tuned for more:

6.  Here is an example of the welfare state gone amok:


7.  The Pizza man should have stayed behind the counter, and away from driving people to and from Italian restaurants:

8.  There is nothing unusual about UCLA's new cuisine menu for its students.   40% of the student body is of Asian ethnicity, and the city of Los Angeles is about as diverse a city that you can find in the USA.   It's great!.  Meanwhile, all of the MBA and Urban Planing students are out chasing Taco trucks in West LA, or looking in East LA for the "primo tamale".  Life is good:


9.  This article points out the hypocrisy of the GeeOpie stands on two federal programs that require universal participation:


10.  Calling out the GeeOpie dominated state legislatures for purposely trying to suppress the opposition voters:


11.  The NY Times editorial that asks that bankers refrain from receiving bonus payments ends it for today:
