    Non-Profit Quarterly ^ | October 9, 2013 | By Rick Cohen
    The fate of the Affordable Care Act, notwithstanding obstructionism by the Republicans and the nine House Democrats, depends strongly on the success of efforts to get uninsured people to enroll for health insurance. First and foremost in making this happen are the navigators. There’s no reason to let the Obama administration off the hook for its own responsibility in making the work of the navigators tough, what with navigator grants that were announced only in August with training materials issued in September for the October 1st start-up of the exchanges, not to mention embarrassing computer glitches. Since the nonprofit sector...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | Monday, October 22, 2012 | Scott Rasmussen
    Mitt Romney has now reached the 50% mark for the first time in Colorado and leads President Obama by four in the critical swing state. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Colorado Voters finds Romney with 50% support to Obama’s 46%. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Still, Colorado remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. But Colorado is the fourth swing state that has moved in Romney’s direction in the past week. Florida, Missouri and North Carolina have now shifted...

    AP ^ | March 12, 2011, 11:21 am EST | Howard Fendrich,
    Unable to decide how to divvy up $9 billion a year, NFL owners and players put the country's most popular sport in limbo by breaking off labor negotiations hours before their contract expired. At midnight, as Friday became Saturday, the owners locked out the players -- creating the NFL's first work stoppage since 1987 and putting the 2011 season in jeopardy.

    <p>The details of nominating a president of the United States have evolved constantly in the nation's history, determined by changing communications technology, demographics, political circumstances and, most recently, a trendy clacque of expensive political operatives known euphemistically as "consultants."</p> <p>The election of 2004, particularly on the Democratic side, is heading toward an apotheosis of this process, composed on a monotonal theme on the word "no." There are two kinds of presidential aspirants. First, there are the "anointed" figures, chosen by party leaders and the media, whose names are increasingly tossed about in speculation, one or two of whom are depicted as frontrunners. Second, there are those who usually hold public office, but who are not nationally well-known.</p>
  • Democratic Website Restricting Access

    Democratic Website | 11/06/2002 | Me
    An unnamed Democratic website that seems quite popular has suddenly restricted its access to only those who have donated in the last year. The reason stated is that the current load on the website's servers is allegedly too heavy. The timing on the move is interesting, to turn away their lurkers and posters on the morning after a smashing defeat. This obviously can't help our opponents morale. Perhaps someone is taking their marbles and going....to Canada.
