Things to Know - 7 April


1.  The Santa Monica news bureau comes through with this graph that show just how much the Bush administration has contributed to the cumulative growth of the continuing deficit spending from when he left office and through the current administration (no fault of the Obama administration).   Seems as though the Democrats have to clean up all the messes that the GOP start and leave behind.   Now, why is that?:

2.  What hate-filled Christians won't do in the name of Jesus:

3.  Wisconsin governor Walker last night signed a flurry of laws that rolled back a lot of progressive legislation that the state had on the books.  One of them that was thrown out was the redress of discrimination in pay, which basically turns back any effort to offer women equal pay for equal work in the state.  So, let's see how etch-a-sketch Rominee fields this GeeOpee behavior:

4.  The inevitability of Wannabee Romney being crowned the nominee is not so much that he is so good (he's not), it is that the field around him is so bad.  Gingrich is the most unpopular guy in town, even through his ego prevents him from the truth.  And poor Ricky-Ticky Santorum is so bad, that even in his own home state, they don't like him:;_ylt=A2KLJL4uF39P_yEA9g2w73QA;_ylu=X3oDMTQzNW0yMzcwBG1pdANBcnRpY2xlIFRvcFN0b3JpZXMEcGtnAzI2NzYzZTM5LWEzZDMtM2E2Yy05NmQwLTMxOWYwMGZhYWU1OQRwb3MDNARzZWMDTWVkaWFTZWN0aW9uTGlzdAR2ZXIDYmYyMDEzYzAtN2ZlZS0xMWUxLThkN2ItODNiNzBjMzFhNDFl;_ylg=X3oDMTMxczBpbjl2BGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDZmQ5Yjk1ZDUtNWFkNi0zNTcyLWIwY2UtOTlhNjA5YjZlY2VjBHBzdGNhdANidXNpbmVzcwRwdANzdG9yeXBhZ2UEdGVzdAM-;_ylv=3

5.  With the all the chatter and buzz about the SCOTUS ruling going against the Affordable Care Act, arguments based on constitutionality do not get to the heart of the issue - the availability of health care and insurance for all:

6.  Charles Blow compares the Trayvon Martin killing with the O.J. Simpson case, and how justice in America is on trial again:

7.  Gail Collins gives a mirthful perspective to the ineptitudes of the remaining Wannabees and the GeeOpee:

8.  Cynthia Tucker (former AJC editor) kicks in with this piece on the out-of-control mania on firearms.  The other day on TV, I saw Wayne LaPerrier (Top Gun at the NRA) whine about not letting Obama get re-elected because even though nothing has been done to take away our guns, he is just waiting for his second term to do it.  It is interesting to note that the NRA says it is out there in front to make sure that guns are available to all, but takes no responsibility or concern about all the senseless daily shootings and killings from those guns:

"If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them."
       -- Isaac Asimov
"Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff."
       -- Frank Zappa
"If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man."
       -- Mark Twain
