    Open – California Dreaming

    Open – California Dreaming

    This California time zone is messing with my head.  I think I’ll walk into the desert, sit with my legs folded and palms raised towards the sky, and watch the sunset.

    A couple of things I noticed:

    A long-range rocket already has been fired from Gaza at an Israeli city.  The Shalit deal was not a ceasefire deal.

    Least shocking news of the day, ACORN is helping Occupy Wall Street.

    Not a big fan of Public Policy Polling, but I can’t not mention its poll that shows recall support against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker losing strength:

    Walker’s not out of the woods by any means.  48% of voters in the state want to recall him, while 49% are opposed to such a move. But it’s not clear if Democrats will have a candidate strong enough to unseat Walker. The only one who beats him in a hypothetical recall is Russ Feingold. But Feingold’s already said he’s probably not going to run, and his margin over Walker is just 3 points at 49-46.  In May Feingold led Walker 52-42 and in August Feingold had a 52-45 advantage.  So even with their strongest possible candidate Democrats’ prospects against Walker are slipping.

    Just like I predicted.

    Did Perry have any choice considering he is running for President, Perry opposes Confederate plates.

    What else?

    While you’re contemplating your navel in the land of fruits and nuts, a new group is protesting at OWS.

    “Occupy Wall Street kitchen staff protesting fixing food for freeloaders”

      Wow. They’re angry because they’ve been swamped with

      “…. “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.”

      Who could have seen that coming? But the good news is they are OK with donating 18 hours a day preparing free food for “professional protesters”.

      If there’s that much free labor available in NY some entrepreneur is sure missing an opportunity to open a profitable no-labor-cost dining establishment.

    I sure hope no one comes to Occupy Palm Desert. 😉

    Did you by chance get an opportunity to witness any of the fleabaggers’ increased agitation while traveling?

    Oakland is heating up, as is SF. Seems the more violent ones are coming out in the “laid back” state.

    Enjoy your mantra. 😀

      Where did you get the idea that CA is “laid back”? Berkeley 68? The Watts riots? The Rodney King riots? The Mehserle-Grant riots? The Weathermen? The Black Pathers? The SLA? Earth First?

      Oakland hasn’t had a good riot in — I dunno — a few weeks at least. They were overdue.
