Things to Know - 10 February


1.  Read this one.  It describes how the Billionaire Backers of the Conservative money riding on the GeeOpee Wannabees are just playing a game that ends up in a brokered convention, where the big money will have its chance to put up who they want.   Kind of want to feel sorry for Romney, since he is just being used.  The other wannabees are just tinsel on the tree:

2.  Getting to the heart of the issue on the production of Apple products in China, and just about every electronic gizmo on the market, David Pogue of the NY Times asks the real and hardest question of all - how much do we care ($$$)?:

3.  This is a Huffington Post video about how the digestive system works on two different foods; (1. noodles and liquid from natural ingredients), and (2.  Top Ramen and Gatorade).  A tiny pill that contains the ability to observe, record, and transmit the signal outside of the body for analysis is very revealing.  Bon Appetit!:

4.  In case you've missed Mitt, here he is in Atlanta, saying things to endear him to the right as he demands that welfare recipients be tested for drugs.  He wants to make sure that government money is not being used to support a a drug habit.  Does he include any and all entitlement programs, as well as government contractors as well?  How about the Wall Street crowd that got bailed out with our money?:

5. This is for those of you who may have missed this very emotional speech from the floor of the State of Washington legislature when she came out in favor of the law that granted marriage to same-sex partners:!

6.  David Brooks explores the persona of Mitt, and he frankly does not find much structure or sense of a basic commitment to any social issue that would grant him a brick in the wall:

7.  Paul Krugman explains why the conservatives, when faced with the issue of the income inequality, change the subject and says the problems are all a result of a decline in moral values and a godless society, etc..  Well, Pablo says it really is all about the money, and what the lack of it does:

8.  Doyle McManus of the LA Times covers all the mud that is being tossed around by the GeeOpee Wannabees.  They are killing each other and not really impressing anyone.  This is the kind of behavior and results that will provoke the BIG money (a lot more $$ than Romney has) to produce an alternate to the nomination process (Christie or Rubio) at their convention.  They really have no choice.  The current slate of candidates is about as unelectable as you can get:,0,7358408,print.column

       -- H. L. Mencken
"The really frightening thing about middle age is that you know you'll grow out of it."
       -- Doris Day
"Democracy means that anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn't grow up can be vice president."
