    YEONGCHANG, South Korea—Team USA brought the largest-ever squad to a Winter Olympics: 242 athletes decked out in stars and stripes and suede-fringe gloves, strutting into the Opening Ceremony. So far that big, bold team is doing a faceplant.

An adult or possibly young adult audience is my focus.

  • Kansas j-school professor on leave after tweet about DC shootings, NRA ‘sons and daughters’

    Washington Post ^ | September 20, 2013 | AP
    WICHITA, Kan. — A University of Kansas journalism professor was placed on indefinite administrative leave Friday for a tweet he wrote about the Navy Yard shootings which said, “blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters.” David W. Guth, an associate professor of journalism, made the comment on Twitter after Monday’s shootings in Washington, D.C., in which 13 people died, including the gunman. The tweet didn’t attract much attention until Campus posted a story Thursday, sparking a social media backlash that’s spilled over into some state lawmakers calling for his...

    Whiteout Press ^ | Richard Winger
    April 24, 2012. Des Moines. Two networks yesterday, CNBC and MSNBC, broadcast a little known fact – Ron Paul appears to be winning the Republican nomination for President. When the popular Texas Congressman repeatedly assured supporters that the race was about delegates, not beauty contests, he apparently knew what he was talking about. Now, after three more states locked in delegates to the GOP nominating convention – CO, MN and IA – indicators point to a brokered convention with a possible, even probable, Ron Paul victory.

    CO2insanity ^ | Wall St Pit
    I’ve ragged about Solyndra before. There’s weird stuff going on with this company who even after obtaining a $535 million government loan guarantee and venture capital funds has suffered the inability to go public. They had to lay off employees and shut down one facility immediately after California’s Prop 25 initiative failed (the one that would have neutered California’s global warming law AB32). They’re now being investigated by Congress (House Energy and Commerce Committee) and their CEO recently bailed out. All in all it doesn’t appear to be a pretty picture for Solyndra, California, or their green jobs poster boy...
  • GOP may OK tax increase that Obama hopes to block. (Hurl warning)

    08/21/2011 1:34:40 PM PDT · by Huskrrrr · 26 replies
    WASHINGTON (AP) — News flash: Congressional Republicans want to raise your taxes. Impossible, right? GOP lawmakers are so virulently anti-tax, surely they will fight to prevent a payroll tax increase on virtually every wage-earner starting Jan. 1, right? Apparently not. Many of the same Republicans who fought hammer-and-tong to keep the George W. Bush-era income tax cuts from expiring on schedule are now saying a different "temporary" tax cut should end as planned. By their own definition, that amounts to a tax increase.

    The Nation ^ | July 27, 2011 | William Greider
    The most distressing outcome of the deficit hysteria gripping Washington may be what Barack Obama has revealed about himself. It was disconcerting to watch the president slip-slide so easily into voicing the fallacious economic arguments of the right. It was shocking when he betrayed core principles of the Democratic Party, portraying himself as high-minded and brave because he defied his loyal constituents. Supporters may hope this rightward shift was only a matter of political tactics, but I think Obama has at last revealed his sincere convictions. If he wins a second term, he will be free to strike a truly...
  • Robert Byrd obituary

    As a conservative Democrat with a segregationist background, US Senator Robert Byrd had spent half a century in Congress and was its oldest member when, on 12 February 2003, he was hailed as the nation's lonely voice of conscience after a historic speech. On the senate floor, Byrd, who has died aged 92, lambasted his "paralysed" colleagues for their craven submission to preparations for what he branded an illegal war in Iraq. They listened silently as he told them: "As this nation stands at the brink of battle, every American on some level must be contemplating the horrors of war....
