consultants are sandburs

This and that online, from a Friday and earlier.

A Florida poll shows 51% of respondents believe Republicans are hindering efforts to better the economy with the intention of making Obama a one term President. Part of the bigger picture or the whole scene?

One black blogger "cuts the brother some slack."

Who is Mark Block? What has that got to do with Cain and the friends he keeps, apart from any groping or improper speaking to women? What about Milwaukee Journal Sentinel following the money, apart from any groping and/or speaking? CBS Minnesota, on Cain money. Kos on Cain money. Block knows Walker. Koch Brothers, again. Fiscal Times. Got him by the iPads? Cain likes prosperity patriots?

Pick a few, read a few of the above. It's one single yet-to-be-unwound story. The usual suspects.

One instance of playing the "Demands I'd like to see OWS make" game: Let ALL Citizens 18 and Older Vote, On Paper Ballots, Hand Count Them in Public. Shift the question from photo ID, to assuring the integrity of a vote vs. convenience of electronic vote tallying?

Jon Corzine, and a very recent bankruptcy with questions of comingling promoter and customer money.

Cashing in on spent public cash - do the 1% owe something back?

Black women occupy Wall Street, "This video alone has more black folks than the entire Glenn Beck Tea Bagger rally on the mall last year on MLK’s Birthday."

Who's too harsh on Barack Obama? Too prone to sign off on cuts to Medicare?

Who is the elite, have they been studied as the power of the 1% arguably deserves? In no particular order - Here, here, here, here, here and video here.

An alternative bailout scenario (and why do you suppose it never made it big in DC)? It must be the moral hazard of bailing out the wrong interests.

HufPo, but is it really news?

Is it inherent to the Austrian school economics that I cannot scare up a free online copy? Any reader with a payment-free download link please offer a comment or send a link.

Romney and Ponzi? Tagg Romney?

He said it, "I’m saying that once the egg and the oocyte come together and you have that single-celled embryo, at that point you have human life, ...". Speaking as an authority on reproductive issue.

Being "pro-family," you don't have to pay to play.

"Evidently ... the drags on the recovery were stronger than we thought," he told reporters at a news conference.
