“If you forget the past, you’re a dumb ass, Barack.” Mr. President: please select A or B. We will make it easy for you since you seem to have a severe learning disability. ALL of them are false. ____If a bully keeps beating on you, if you say to him: “You may have a point. You can have my lunch money this time,” he will never bother you again ____ If the opposition wins by claiming you won’t work with them while they won’t work with you: even proudly calls themselves “the party of ‘no,’” once they win they will work with you. ____Both are true.

HERD ABOUT IT? by Ana Grarian Today is a good day. It’s chilly and rainy but it’s still a good day. For once the political news is heartwarming. No, I’m not talking about the elections. Today I learned that, thanks to the tireless work of a group of its citizens, the CNY town of Schroeppel, facing a building campaign for a 72K head cattle feedlot/ethanol plant/slaughterhouse development project has rescinded its resolution to work with the BION corporation, Ah. People can make a difference. When faced with the concern of respectful, well informed, dedicated citizens, local government can be reponsive. Schroeppel, NY – Nearly one year ago, the Schroeppel town board voiced its support for the construction of a huge 72,000-cow meat processing and ethanol production facility in the town. But tonight, the board voted unanimously to rescind its resolution to work with Bion Environmental Technologies. Now – all is not won, and folks will need to stay on top of their game. This does not mean that BION cannot proceed with plans for this project. It means that the town has not resolved to support the project until it sees and approves of concrete plans for the project.

By W.B. Dunne This one goes out to the youngsters out there who have only begun to experience the political process in America. The ones who voted Obama into office and are now seeing the correction for the first time in these midterms: The Democrats won in a landslide in 2010 for the first time ever in a midterm election, and the fact that there is a “Speaker Boehner” on November third is due to a Supreme Court decision, the Koch Brothers, Fox News, the US Chamber of Commerce, and Karl Rove. The NP reminds the young voter that the great court supported the corrupted GOP with its Citizens United decision, allowing for unlimited and undisclosed money from corporations and foreign interests in the campaign. The unintended consequence was that it helped the Tea Party candidates too, and that fact threatens to split the right wing in the House of Representatives. A silver lining for Progressives if ever there was one! Hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign interference has bought the corporate masters precious little.
