No Miles For You! — Another triumph for airline customer service. Go, Delta.

Kior ‘Biocrude’ Plant a Step toward Advanced BiofuelsA Kior plant in Mississippi will start shipping fuel made from wood chips as planned as it chases large-scale production. I've long wondered why this wasn't a much higher engineering and business priority.

Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the DayChick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.” Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family Rule of the Day: Selling your daughter into slavery (Exodus 21:7-11).

Ireland and Abortion: Cruelty disguised as piety, cowardice misrepresented as principle. — In which the forced pregnancy movement conclusively proves that dead babies are more important than live mothers. You people are disgusting. May you rot in your own hell.

Ryan Sees Urban Vote as Reason G.O.P. Lost — Shorter Paul Ryan: "Too many of the wrong color people voted." Darn those voter ID laws not being effective enough.

Romney Co-Chair: Voter ID Would Have Won Us Wisconsin — Confidential to GOP in America: If voter suppression is the only way you know how to win an election, maybe you need to find some new ideas.

Bobby Jindal rejects Mitt Romney’s ‘gifts’ theory — Not something you'll hear me say very often, but good for Governor Jindal. Hey, Money Boo Boo. It's called government providing services to citizens. Unless you consider the carried interest deduction a gift as well, you're just back to your 47% framing. Which betrays both a profound ignorance of the social contract, and a profound indifference to that social contract. Thus the wretched and miserable true character of Mitt Romney re-emerges.

Even if you are in another country, as I am, I would suggest that anyone concerned about the tragic death of Savita Hallappanavar should email James Reilly, the Irish health minister, on: minister's_office@health.gov.ie

- and suggest that emergency legislation is passed on the 'abortion' issue.

Still trying to wrap my head around Paul Ryan's comment on the news about how the economy would be doomed if we raised taxes on the wealthy considering how they're the job creators. Oh really? Then where have the jobs been for the last several years; their taxes haven't been increased thus far. And if they're the ones creating them, why have they been blaming this lack of jobs on Obama? Sorry but none of Ryan's double talk makes any sense to me...

He never actually said the jobs were created in America, did he?

An interesting and user-friendly site is the Recovery Act's page at recovery.gov . It gives a state by state account of how many billions of dollars have been "gifted", including the Red States. Texas, for example, has gotten $16.8 billion. Arizona has gotten $7.7 billion--including almost $1 billion just to public and private entities in the Phoenix metro area.
