Things to Know - 2 May

1. Four guys who ran against Willard are on record as to why allowing Romney to be the nominee would be a disaster.  Here it is - all documented, ready for prime-time etch-a-sketch attempts:

2.  The GeeOpee is having a very difficult time accepting the demise of Osama at the hands of Obama:

3.  The Mitt-Bott campaign advisor who originated the phrase of "etch-a-sketch" for the new strategy is a real pip.  He's back at it again claiming that Obama stole the idea of bailing out GM - even in light of Romney's op-ed piece in the NY Times that advocated letting GM go bankrupt.   They are either helpless incompetents in the Romney camp, or delusional:

4.  Thom Hartmann tells you about some stuff that I am not really covering elsewhere on this page:

5.  Katrina vanden Heuvel writes about a form of supportive tuition for college students, so that there is not this huge burden upon them in their early years in a career.   Of course the banks highly favor the interest they pay on over $1 Trillion of the incurred debt.  I would really like to incorporate this program into my favorite subject of bring back the draft in a National Service program with military service as well as Peace Corps and other programs in a mandatory program for all, where there is higher education support for all.  Our country can do this, and should do this:

6.  An openly gay advisor in the Romney campaign found it necessary to quit because of the pressure from the intolerant Republicans who questioned the wisdom of having such a person associated with the group.  So, what else is new with the intolerant right?:

7.  The NY TImes editorial board expected a bit more specific information from Obama on just exactly what the plan is for our continued presence in Afghanistan.   Meanwhile, Romney and Giuliani are having pizza at ground zero:

8.  Bits and pieces are emerging that indicate that economy is trending upward.  However, it is not a robust move, but in small steps:


"A fashion is nothing but an induced epidemic." 
       -- George Bernard Shaw
"It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value." 
       -- Arthur C. Clarke
"I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I'm in a cabinet meeting." 
       -- Ronald Reagan
"Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life." 
       -- Herbert Henry Asquith
"You wouldn't have won if we'd beaten you."
       -- Yogi Berra
