A Statement From The OWS Protesters

Via Courage Campaign:


This "blue" state sends more House Republicans to D.C. than all but one "red" state: Texas. What's worse is these rightwing ideologues don't even pretend to represent us. California's unemployment rate is over 12%, but they refuse to create jobs. They want to keep the economy in the gutter until next year's election.

Sign our petition demanding Republicans allow a vote on the American Jobs Act!

JMG Quote Of The Day - Andrew Sullivan


"So she's bowing out. Call it cowardice; call it a rare example of sanity; call it a bizarre end to an even weirder game of hide and seek for the past few months. But the bottom line is: we can stop worrying about the threat she posed to this country. That is all I really cared about: the insane gamble with the world that John McCain foisted on us, with no vetting and no reason but desperation and cynicism. It is hard to describe the relief of this awful person finally going away." - Andrew Sullivan, in a typically blistering post about Sarah Palin.

Via JMG: Obama On Steve Jobs


The White House has released a statement by the president.
Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it. By building one of the planet's most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.
