Links of the day

B-Daddy has got a photo line-up of the 1%ers. You might just recognize a few of them.

He also participated in a virtual townhall phonecon with Susan Davis (D-San Diego). After reading his recounting of the event, we were wondering how it is that it is only waterboarding that is illegal.

KT loves the President's new idea (which really isn't all that new if you follow the comments at the link) of capping student loan payments at 10% of your income and thinks that if we apply that to other sectors of the economy we can really get the economy roaring.

From the comments:

Student "loans" are not loans at all. They are welfare payments to entice young people to eschew the workplace for a decade and to support tenured Professors of of Nitwittery and their feckless graduate students.

Secular Apostate breaks down the #Occupy Wall Street list of demands with some running commentary of his own.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

It’s their fault that women and minorities don’t major in mechanical engineering and investment banking, and choose Vagina Studies or Queer History instead.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

Which is why everybody is dead and arugula is so expensive at Whole Foods.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices.

It’s their fault we’re not all vegans. Set the chickens free so they can join us in solidarity!

Good stuff. Go to the link.
