    Walter Williams is one of my favorite political commentators. Read what he has to say about modern Democracy.

    It makes me understand why that woman in Arizona ran over her non-voting husband.

    And I would have been obliged to post this article link — “Vulture capitalism – not unions – killed Twinkies” — to counter that notion:

    But the story is far more complicated than that – and in some ways, the exact opposite of the tale pushed by those on the right. It’s the story of two bankruptcies, hundreds of millions of givebacks from Hostess unions and hundreds of millions of debt piled onto the company by venture capitalists. It’s a story of management that boosted its own salaries, while failing to make agreed payments into workers’ pension funds. And it’s a story of changing tastes and diets.

    Introducing The Denver Real Estate News, an online only consumer orientated publication covering local, regional, and national news on real estate. Not a rag for the purpose of selling real estate, DREN will be reporting on all facets of this important subject (if you don’t think it’s important, then you didn’t notice the collapse of our economy). Will also be doing

    investigative journalism, imagine that! (big story coming soon)

    Current front page story is “Fiscal cliff may threaten mortgage interest deduction“, will be some real political posturing on this one.

    has finally conceded. So the final count is 201 D to 234 R in the House. An eight seat gain for Ds fighting against the gerrymandered tide of safe districts. Of course if you’re a Republican, that and a larger Dem Senate majority and a re-elected Dem President, who won in spite of their billionaires money and the right’s control of the most popular cable “news’ network and talk radio, means the voters handed you, the Republicans, a mandate. You also get the mandate if you actually win more seats and the White House. In their world it’s always heads Rs win, tails Ds lose.

    Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget

    falls drop by drop upon the heart

    until, in our own despair, against our will,

    comes wisdom through the awful grace of God
