    Of all the coalitions in D.C., the trade deals that saw DeMint support free trade and L. Graham support his own textiles told me the difference..
    Obama supports Elite Repubs and the international banks with this deal..

    i suggest watching ezra klien or Lawrence O'Donnell. I know lawrence talks too smugly, i appreciate his perspective because he was a former senate staffer.

    As you point out with ESPN and Silver, methinks E$$PN could be the next FOX in the news business..

    At this point, Ed is back to rallying the troops..
    Chris gets all of the top guests as their #1 anchor..
    Rev. Al has his base and Obama's back..
    I like calling the GOPers out for nullification--the truth..
    IMHO, the trashing of Obama on FOX with GOP Congresspeople is far past the standard used for Sedition during President Adams..
    I know lawrence talks too smugly, i appreciate his perspective because he was a former senate staffer.
    Lawrence is very good on economics..I have learned from him .

    The judge approving that Detroit can declare bankruptcy you mean. I watch a little report on that while I ate supper. I agree, it is a big deal.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The judge agreed with those who DID NOT want the bankrupcy on multiple items but had to go with the law..

    Michigan passed what may be the worst of all the "post--2010 GOP laws"--
    giving the Governor power to appoint a czar/city manager--not elected--if certain economic factors are reached..

    The judge agreed the Governor hastened the bankrupcy of Detroit through budgeting gimmicks..
    It will all come out in the wash..

    And public pensioneers like you will go all the way down to 18% of pensions, 18% of less than $20,000 .

    Thanks for the reminder to check your blog! I did, and as usual, it's very informative. Thanks once again for doing all the hard work for us, Pero. ...it's appreciated!

    I did some checking, O'Donnell doesn't come on until 10PM my time. That is usually around the time I start to wrap things up on the computer and the wife tells me it is time to do the last couple of honey do's and get ready for bed. But I will flip him on, at least in the background.

    Never thought of that. Nate had post last July that in his new job will be forecasting games along with his political analysis.

    I don't know any of the particulars, just heard the judge had approved it.
