    It was a touching image, especially for someone like me who grew up in a racially charged city in northern New Jersey, for whom Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemons constituted a singular image of a post-racist future even as local cops could still harass and brutalise young black men with relative impunity... Whether or not you voted for Obama in 2008, it was hard not to be teary-eyed on election night watching an African American man win the presidency of a country that during his lifetime was still routinely lynching black men... That things haven't turned out quite as most...

    I-502, a voter initiative designed to legalize the possession and personal use of Marijuana, appears to have passed. With 50% of the statewide votes counted, the initiative leads with a 55% to 45% approval rating. Up to one ounce of marijuana, grown at state-licensed facilities, and sold (and TAXED!) at state retail locations, will now be allowed. There will be standards set for driving while impaired, as well as a zero-tolerance policy for persons under 21. It is estimated it will take about a year for all the machinery to get set up before people can buy retail hooch! Negotiations...

    Candy Crowley ruined the second debate with her interference, CBS withheld damning video of Obama on 9/12 denying the Benghazi attack was terrorism. Romney was thrown off his game by the MSM covering for Obama. After Sandy, Chris Christie injected himself into the campaign by shamelessly giving Obama wet sloppy kisses when he toured the Jersey shore after Sandy. I think this may have hurt Romney more than we all know, because the MSM ran three straight days of Christie/Obama giving each other wet sloppy kisses.

The legislature of Connecticut was then in session at Hartford.A very general opinion prevailed, that the day of judgment was at hand. The house of Representatives, being unable to transact their business, adjourned. A proposal to adjourn the Council was under consideration.When the opinion of Colonel Davenport was asked, he answered, "I am against an adjournment.

But it also means the deficit is gone as the government would be unable to add to the debt limit.

    Things don’t look good for Romney, as of this writing. His path to victory is narrow, and the results are not breaking in his favor. All this news flies in the face of the obvious signs of the past two weeks, that Romney was clearly winning, that Obama knew it, as did all the insiders. The huge rallies for the challenger easily dwarfed Obama’s. Romney and Ryan were confident on the stump, Obama and Biden strident and error prone. Polling showed dissatisfaction with the country’s direction, and Obama’s alleged charm had even worn off women. The all important independent vote...

    Best Future Dystopias Where The Liberals Have Won The Republican Party is gathering in St. Paul, to put forth its vision of the future.

Which makes us wonder: what does science fiction, the literature of the future, have to say about liberal-run dystopias?

Jeremy Owens, 23, was busted following the bizarre incident at the retailer in Lackawanna County. Owens was apprehended after he left the store and boarded a municipal bus, from which he had to be forcibly removed by cops. After being cuffed and placed in a cruiser, Owens banged his head against the vehicle’s window, apparently cutting himself in the process. Which then allowed Owens (seen at right) to allegedly spit blood at officers. Owens, who calls himself “Jamie,” was jailed for aggravated assault, drug possession,...
