Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

If the Republicans were interested solely in political gain instead of the welfare of the country, they would agree to everything that Obama wants and allow the inevitable crash of the economy.
Tax more, spend more always works out the same.
Obama and bush simply wants to gain more money through tax, while people like romney promised to invest healthiliy in privates companies like McDonalds.

Obama's Favorability Jumps After Election Win

A new Gallup poll finds President Obama's favorable rating at 58%, his best in over three years.....

Meanwhile, The Week notes losing "is never a great way to increase your popularity.

But to an unusually vocal degree, Republicans are going out of their way to show Romney the door."

http://theweek.com/article/index/236522/why-r...

Lol,,,Why should republicans be any different. Most of the country went out of their way to show Romney the door.

Some company will make Twinkies, whether with the current personnel and facilities or not.
Your statement that buyers are lining up for the bakeries assumes that existing baking companies are short on production capacity, probably unlikely.
More likely they will just buy some of the machinery.
A Mexican Company has been trying to purchase parts of the firm for years__and in certain areas a supply problem will create a buyer.

Kinda like when the candy business left Reading PA for greener pastures__shyt happens pal__one door closes another one opens__now you've got muchroons and financial centers.

You'd probably rather have the candy companies back wouldn't you?

Romney-Style Economics Behind Decline of Hostess, But Workers Are Paying the Price
Hostess Brands is one of the most recognizable food companies in America, having manufactured Wonder Bread and Twinkies for decades. But now the company has announced they are liquidating, and company is unfairly blaming their workers, many of them members of BCTGM and the Teamsters.
The fact is that the responsibility lies with Hostess’ management and the vulture Wall Street private equity firm behind them, and yet the workers are the ones who will suffer the consequences of this shutdown.
Here are some facts about the Hostess situation:
Hostess is in bankruptcy for the second time since 2009.
For the past 8 years, Hostess has been owned by Wall Street investors: so-called “restructuring experts,” managers from other non-baking food companies, and now a “liquidation specialist.”
The Wall Street investors that own Hostess have no interest in the company succeeding – very similar to the situation of Bain Capital and KB Toys in 2000.
Hostess has had six CEO’s in 8 years, none of whom had any experience in the bread or cake baking industry. This, not any action by the unionized workers, led to their failure.
Hostess workers made numerous concessions, including this year when the company stopped making contributions to their pensions. They went on strike because management offered a contract cutting wages and benefits by 27-32 percent.
Despite their troubles, Hostess’ CEO got a 300 percent raise, from $750,000 to $2,250,000. Other top executives have also gotten raises worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Earlier this week when workers at 20 plants went on strike, Hostess management claimed they would close plants in response. In fact, they already had plans to close at least nine plants as part of a company-wide reorganization. They Mayor of St. Louis said of the closings “I was told months ago…”

Are you talking to the Chinese about not building more coal plants?
At least the Chinese are building newer, advanced cleaner coal plants.

China has vast regions with no electric service as do many under developed countries.

The planet has had eruptions for eons. Our climate & Atmosphere are based on it.

That doesn't mean we should add poisons & pollutants & greenhouse gases over & beyond it. When you do, you change both.

Gaza: Background and Context

By far the best place to get a real background understanding for Israel’s current war on Gaza is Jerome Slater’s superb analysis of the 2008-2009 war, which appears in the current issue of Harvard and MIT’s jointly published journal, International Security. Here are some salient excerpts, which provide the kind of context one doesn’t receive from the American political class or most of the American media. They only capture a few of Slater’s many profound points; those interested should read the whole piece.

"Israel claimed that because it ended its occupation of Gaza in 2005 by with- drawing the Jewish settlements, continued attacks against it demonstrated Hamas’s true purpose: the destruction of the State of Israel. Therefore, the argument goes, the Jewish state had no other choice but to defend itself. Most of the critics of Cast Lead have not challenged this argument, focusing instead on the moral unacceptability of Israel’s methods.

Nonetheless, the Israeli claim to have had a just cause is unconvincing. First, as already described, Israel maintained both direct and indirect control over Gaza after its 2005 “withdrawal” and continued to inoict severe suffering on its inhabitants. Consequently, the inference that Hamas’s goal of destroying Israel was the only explanation for its attacks is baseless. Second, even if Israel had genuinely ended its occupation of Gaza, its inhabitants would have retained their right to continue the Palestinian struggle against the Israeli occupation and repression of the other Palestinian territories. As the 1992 Oslo agreement states, the West Bank and Gaza Strip are “a single territo- rial unit.” To believe otherwise is the equivalent of believing that, if in the 1770s, the British had withdrawn from New Jersey but continued to occupy the other twelve colonies, the residents of New Jersey would no longer have had the right to take up arms in support of American independence. The right of resistance against aggression, occupation, or repression is inherent in just war morality and, for that matter, in the common morality of mankind."
