    The Progressives won on Tuesday. I don't mean the people who voted Democrat who call themselves "progressive." Though they won, too. I mean the Progressives who've been waging a century-long effort to transform our American-style government into a European-style state. The words "government" and "state" are often used interchangeably, but they are really different things. According to the founders' vision, the people are sovereign and the government belongs to us. Under the European notion of the state, the people are creatures of the state, significant only as parts of the whole. This European version of the state can be nice....

    ROBBINSDALE, Minn. -- A 7th grader at Robbinsdale Middle School was put in a very odd position Thursday morning on the way to school by a bus driver for Metropolitan Transportation Network, according to the school district. MTN contracts some bus routes with Robbinsdale schools. In a letter sent to parents Thursday afternoon Robbinsdale Middle School Principal, John Cook, said a 7th grade student was riding on bus to school Thursday morning when the driver on that route noticed something on the side of the road. The driver stopped the bus and told the student to go see what it...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- U.S. stock futures were lower Friday, as disappointing corporate results weighed on sentiment, setting the market up for a third straight day of declines. J.C. Penney (JCP, Fortune 500) reported a much bigger than expected loss, sending its shares tumbling more than 8% in premarket trading. The company lost 93 cents a share excluding special items, while analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were forecasting a loss of only 7 cents. Sales also fell short of forecasts. It marked the third straight quarter of bigger than forecast losses at J.C. Penney as new CEO Ron Johnson struggles...

    Perhaps I should have changed the title of this post to "The Americans Who Stayed At Home". That's really where this all lies. In the aftermath of the election, I was reading some posts on Facebook and came across one from someone I am related to. He and his wife shall remain nameless, but what they posted troubled me greatly. They basically congratulated President Obama for his victory and then wrote that they were proud of the fact that they did not vote. I could not believe what I was reading. How can any American citizen not have the desire...

    Britain's biggest newsagent appears to be relaxing age restrictions on the sale of shooting magazines to children after pressure from countryside campaigners. A row erupted last month when it emerged WH Smith was refusing to sell shooting titles to under-14s, even though they can legally hold a shotgun licence below that age. Country sports enthusiasts responded by launching a lobbying campaign. Members of the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) have been visiting stores, e-mailing the company and lobbying via social media while an online petition has attracted 12,000 signatures. The association said it now appeared that WH Smith...

    (Putting on my flak jacket). Let me say that I'm no fan of Romney's politics, but the guy ran a decent campaign, and he appeals to swing voters in a way that Santorum and Palin cannot. And let's face it - what's he going to do with the rest of his life? If there's one thing he's got, it's time and money. He can learn from his mistakes, just as Nixon learned from his, and perhaps lead the GOP to victory in 2016.

    Attorney General Eric Holder told University of Baltimore law students he may not serve a second Obama term, CBS DC reported today. “Do I have gas left in the tank?” he asked, saying he still must talk things over with his family and the president about if he “can contribute to a second term.” Holder’s tank is not the only one running on empty. His departure would effectively strand the Congressional Fast and Furious investigation on the side of the road, along with any chance of determining his level of involvement in decision-making and subsequent stonewalling.

    Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Crouse Hospital announced Thursday another round of cuts as it considers significant challenges down the road due to healthcare reform. Seventy jobs – 23 that were vacant – were cut on Thursday, including nursing, nursing support and non-nursing positions. Bob Allen, a spokesperson for the hospital, says they’re looking ahead as they expect decreases in Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements. The hospital is looking at ways to contain costs on supplies, overtime, and other expenses to insure the hospital can provide service in the future. Last month, the hospital cut 23 management positions – three that were vacant...

    Philadelphia could be facing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of gun owners who say the city violated their privacy by publishing their personal information and launching an interactive web map that included clickable icons of revolvers over their homes. Attorney Joshua Prince filed a motion this week in Common Pleas Court, requesting that the suit be sealed to avoid revealing the names of his five clients - and potentially hundreds of others if the case is granted class-action status. In August, the city's Department of Licenses and Inspections introduced a revamped website, featuring a map that allowed users to view...

    cnn money ^ | 10/1/2012 | By Jeanne Sahadi
    American households face an average tax increase of $3,500 if Congress doesn't act to avert the fiscal cliff, according to a new analysis from the Tax Policy Center. Overall, 88% of households would end up with higher taxes. ,,,, By contrast, households making up to $20,113 would see a $412 average increase. That may simply represent a smaller refund to those households, many of which have very little if any federal income tax liability to begin with. Households in the middle -- with total incomes between $39,790 and $64,484 -- can expect a roughly $2,000 increase.

Liberals have been going in this direction for awhile, arguing two things: Hitting the fiscal cliff would not be a huge catastrophe right away, and the GOP has lost a lot of leverage, so there's no reason to cave to their insistence on everything. So Krugman tells Obama not to reach his hand out...

    These are days of hindsight and second-guessing for Republicans, which is human nature after a trauma like this election loss. There are million “why” theories out there, from the Hurricane Sandy effect to pernicious media bias. Wringing our hands over those factors gets us nowhere. We can’t stop hurricanes, and media bias is always there. Reagan and Bush 43 won twice against waves of poisonous bias, so that is not an insurmountable obstacle. What Republicans need is a slate of candidates that can energize the base while expanding the appeal of a conservative message. Easy to say, hard to do....

    The television industry loves to claim that all of the sex, violence and foul-mouthed language it displays has zero harmful effects on children. On the other hand, they would never dream of telling their advertisers that their paid messages on TV have no effect. So does the entertainment industry have an impact or doesn't it? The answer is that Tinseltown certainly has an effect, and when that effect is felt in the political arena, the hell with pretending they don't. They openly celebrate. After the 2012 election, the surprising (if narrow) victories for liberals drew a thumbs-up commentary from former...

    President Obama won one of the narrower re-elections in modern times Tuesday, eking out a second term with a fraction of his 7.3% margin of 2008, in a polarized country with the opposition GOP retaining and still dominating the House. Given that second Presidential terms are rarely better than the first, this is best described as the voters doubling down on hope over experience. *** Mr. Obama's campaign stitched together a shrunken but still decisive version of his 2008 coalition—single women, the young and culturally liberal, government and other unions workers, and especially minority voters. He said little during the...

    For those in the New York area suffering not only from the devastating storms but also from gas lines that have lasted longer than a work shift, some relief is on the way Friday. Leaders announced gas rationing in parts of New York and New Jersey in an effort to address the gas shortage brought on by the one-two punch of Superstorm Sandy and this week's nor'easter. "Drivers are still facing long lines, frustrations are only growing and it now appears that there will be shortages for possibly another couple of weeks," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters Thursday...
  • Corrupt Politicians Aren't the Problem....Just a Symptom of the Problem

    Unless we have a national soul searching, life changing revivial, I'm afraid that our nation is at an end. Right has become wrong and wrong has become right. I don't think we are at the crossroads; we've already passed that with this election. The Lord is our only hope but you know, He always has been. We as a nation just haven't been listening. I'm as guilty as anyone. Regarding the election, Obama and the liberal senators who were just swept into office are not the problem. They are just a symptom of the problem. Our problem is a spiritual...
  • Momentive Inc. plans temporary layoffs for 150

    11/09/2012 12:50:28 AM PST · by My Favorite Headache · 5 replies
    About 150 workers at Sistersville's Momentive Performance Materials plant will be temporarily laid off later this month, officials said this week. Citing a reduction in customer demand and a weak economy, the company will lay off workers for a two week period beginning Nov. 12 and ending Nov. 25, with workers returning to the job Nov. 26. According to John Scharf, spokesperson for Momentive Performance Materials Inc., temporary layoffs due to reduced demand are commonplace in manufacturing. "There are slow downs like this at various times, where we don't receive many orders as other times of the year," he said....
  • W-B officials to announce mandatory layoffs

    Wilkes-Barre city employees will know by the end of the week if their jobs are safe from furloughs during the final six weeks of the year, city officials said Wednesday. In October, the city asked its nearly 300 employees to take voluntary furloughs to patch a $2 million deficit. But the number of employees who accepted them by last Friday's deadline was not enough to solve the city's budget woes, forcing the city to resort to mandatory furloughs, city spokesman Drew McLaughlin said. McLaughlin said officials are still determining how they can reduce the work force without diminishing services. The...
  • 600 Layoffs At Groupon

    11/09/2012 12:42:05 AM PST · by My Favorite Headache · 8 replies
    Groupon is firing some employees today. A source familiar with the situation puts the number at 80. This is a significant number of people, obviously, but it's also a very small percentage of Groupon's 10,000+ global employees. Groupon is reporting Q3 earnings this evening. Management will presumably describe the details of these layoffs on the call. The source familiar with the situation suggests the cuts are part of a sales and marketing "optimization" effort that Groupon management alluded to on the last earnings call. UPDATE: Groupon disclosed that it has cut more than 600 jobs from its salesforce in the...
  • The Reason Obama is President

    11/09/2012 12:41:23 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 13 replies
    The reason America has the trillion dollar war monger Obama as president today is because of  immorality and materialism in America. President John Adams once said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -October 11, 1798. "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible" - George Washington. Thomas Jefferson wrote: "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the...
