Meade changes the thread topic from President Obama to Walker


From now on I address Larry as "Meade the Weasel."

Because that is what he is.

Republicans back on top in Madison
“I hope at least in January that we start immediately on this,” Barca said. “It should be simple to forge some consensus on that issue.”

Here, Vos acknowledges that there’s a way forward. “I think that we both agree that we have to find a way to address the problem. There is no doubt about that, and I think we could work together,” he said.

You might like to see Feingold on the bench but it will never happen. He's a politician, not a judge.

Where's the snazzy?
Yet another broken election promise.

After the fall elections, InTrade stopped accepting bets from US residents, under pressure from the CFTC regulatory agency.

Now the whole thing is shut down:

Online Betting Site Intrade Is Shut After Audit Queries
Late Sunday, Intrade said it would close all outstanding bets after the company had discovered potential “financial irregularities” under Irish law. The company said it also had ceased trading, settled all outstanding customer contracts and stopped users’ banking transactions from the Web site.

Not so snazzy after all.

Do I studder(sorry, had to use it) Yes, I thought it was a stupid site where people basically gambled on stupid shit. A waste of time and money. It's about as useful as JustinBieber.com
