Something to Know - Election Day 2012

Signe Wilkinson
1.  When he all done with the ego trip of running for president, this guy needs to be investigated with a microscope.  His tax avoidance schemes are about as unpatriotic as it gets.   This empty suit should be banned from any try for public office:

2.  Nate Silver is the focus of much attention.  He's the author of the 538Blog, which gives the GOP gas pains, and the Democrats reason and calm.   Here is his latest work as we coast into the election day:

3.  Here we have GOP VP candidate Paul Ryan demonstrating that he knows nothing about which he speaks.   Where does he get off accusing Obama of being the destroyer of Judeo-Christian values?   Because Obama gets a medical care program going for the uninsured, and millions who had no health care - this is a problem?   Listen here, sonny boy, you have no grounds or right to preach your babble:

4.  Robert Reich offers up a perspective on where we are today with our lives and what the future and our new demographics will bring:

5.  This election has seen much distortion, fabrication, and outright lies.   The truth never came out, and we are a sorrier nation for it:

6.  Roger Cohen of the NY Times closes out the end of the campaign with this excellent piece.  As one who became a naturalized citizen, he is jazzed about being here to write about it.  He has seen and heard enough to offer a great opinion:

7.  In closing, reflection is given to the importance on a greater scale this time around of the Latino or Hispanic vote.  It may make the difference in key battle ground contests.  In any event, going forward, the importance of this voting block will never again be abused or neglected by the GOP:


"If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you'll be going, 'you know, we're alright. We are dang near royalty.'"

"We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing."

"Nothing is as simple as we hope it will be." 
       -- Jim Horning
"Hindsight is always twenty-twenty."
