*Well, if you guys would quit nominating these nutballs for high political office, we wouldn't have anything to talk about... *

FWIW:

I'm voting against a Republican candidate for Senate ;)

Another good one id "Drift" by Maddow. It details the drifting of our mission with our military from one of a war machine used in defence of ourselves and our our allies by a conscripted population (from the ENTIRE population) that included all levels of society to a military that looks more like a police force focused mainly on police actions and comprised mainly of poor volunteers.

It makes a lot of sense. Our fathers had the shared experience early in life (Repubs and Dems, rich and poor, etc) that taught them how to interact and work together despite those differences, our current youth not so much.

Recommendation for the SLS book club:

PLUTOCRATS - The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else

A groundbreaking examination of wealth disparity, income inequality, and the new global elite

There has always been some gap between rich and poor in this country, but in the last few decades what it means to be rich has changed dramatically. Alarmingly, the greatest income gap is not between the 1 percent and the 99 percent, but within the wealthiest 1 percent of our nation--as the merely wealthy are left behind by the rapidly expanding fortunes of the new global super-rich. Forget the 1 percent; Plutocrats proves that it is the wealthiest 0.1 percent who are outpacing the rest of us at break-neck speed.

What’s changed is more than numbers. Today, most colossal fortunes are new,

not inherited--amassed by perceptive businessmen who see themselves as deserving victors in a cut-throat international competition. As a transglobal class of successful professionals, today’s self-made oligarchs often feel they have more in common with one another than with their countrymen back home. Bringing together the economics and psychology of these new super-rich, Plutocrats puts us inside a league very much of its own, with its own rules.

"You are attempting to silence Gina as you've attempted to silence me on my outlook about the criminal, lazy, unproductive entitled OWS thugs. Shame is on you for attempting to suppress others from expressing themselves. "

Oh please s42... I'm not trying to 'silence' anyone, how melodramatic of you!

The same goes for you bubchick, why do you believe that your story has more merit than mine? Why does the 'entitlement attitude' stink more coming off the wealthy than the poor, eh?

The point, before your heroic deflection, was that just because you are a conservative does not mean you have exclusive right to have a 'Horatio Alger' story, not that I'm trying to 'shut down' Gina.

Nice try though.

Thats okay. Hit them back with the fact the emails have now emerged proving the white house knew in real time what was happening in Libya, who was responsible, and the lied about a video. Why? Election time thats why.

In this modern world, the cozy world of lazy wealth accumulation by taking the future value of American companies, selling the companies assets, and outsourcing its jobs for lower wages in China is the domain of Willard Mitt Romney, outsourcing pioneer and Mormon bishop.

Any and all other enterprises of the Romney Crime Family Enterprise included depositing large amounts in foreign and alien banks, dedicated to the principle of avoiding American taxes.

Seriously. Another crime family enterprise. Big W. Just like Dubya. Bigoted and religious.

Page 2) Romney and Obama have sharp differences on these subjects and more, though they don't always make them easy to see. Much of the final leg of the campaign is about reaching for the middle ground. So nothing too radical, please. For Romney, that means suddenly talking about his interest in seeing Pell grants rise for low-income college students, not about the major changes in government programs that would be required for him even to get close to his deficit-cutting goals. For Obama, it means preaching fiscal discipline and an aggressive stance on energy production, not focusing on the tax increases for higher-end insurance policies in his health care law or the mercury pollution controls that could shut dozens of coal-fired power plants across the country. Although Obama failed to persuade a Democratic Congress to pass limits he promised on carbon emissions and he shelved a plan to toughen health standards on lung-damaging smog, a second term could give a second wind to steps like these. Both candidates talk about cutting unnecessary regulation, but Romney's view of what's unnecessary is far more expansive than the Democrat's. That's part of a larger, fundamental and familiar divide between the two parties on the proper responsibilities of government. Voters, like candidates, can't predict what economic calamity will come out of the blue. But it's clear both from records and rhetoric that Obama believes in the power of government and the Treasury to stimulate growth, add jobs and even save industries in ways that Romney doesn't. On Nov. 6, voters choose governing principles as much as a list of positions. That holds true on foreign policy, too. At the moment, Romney comes across as just a little more aggressive on the conflict in Syria than does Obama. On Afghanistan, he supports the president's plan to end U.S. combat in 2014, with the qualification that conditions at the time be suitable for withdrawal. Those apparently modest differences may come to nothing after the campaign, or they could prove substantive — determining whether the U.S. truly extricates itself from one war and how willing it will be to fight another. The choice in the election doesn't just matter on the issues the candidates want to talk about. It can matter just as much on the issues they avoid. This is where the Supreme Court comes in. With four justices in their 70s, there's a strong chance the next president will have a chance to fill at least one seat on a court closely divided between conservatives and liberals. One new face on the bench could mean a major change in civil liberties, gay relationships, gun control, health care, the approach to terrorism, perhaps access to abortion, and more, for years to come. All told, a lot of tipping points on Election Day. That's democracy for you.
