- Today's comic is The climate cliff by Matt Bors:
- This is a great problem to have.
- Good luck with that, crazy lady:
Orly Taitz, the California dentist and attorney best known for challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship, is asking the 80,000 people who have watched her YouTube video to join her for a protest in Washington.
- Nerd bait.
- As digby says:
Here's the thing, once again: all of this is unnecessary. The deficit caused by Bush's tax cuts, wars and recession will be largely mitigated by reinstatement of the upper income taxes, drawdown of the wars, growth(duh!) and, most importantly, controlling health care costs, the best method for which would have been expanding Medicare to cover everyone. We don't need to make this "clever" accounting change that will result in elderly and disabled people suffering. We can get serious about a rational national security policy, controlling health care costs, and espurring conomic growth and stop listening to the disaster capitalists who are intent upon using this window of opportunity to cut the programs they hate, whether the economy is good or bad. (Hell, we could even raise the top income tax rate above the Clinton levels, at least for those making a million dollars a year. These people have been making out like bandits and surely won't miss the money.)
- So yeah. Amelia Earhart's prenup was all kinds of awesome:
On our life together I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any midaevil code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly. If we can be honest I think the difficulties which arise may be best avoided should you or I become interested deeply (or in passing) in anyone else.
Please let us not interfere with the others' work or play, not let the world see our private joys or disagreements. [...]
I must exact a cruel promise and that is you will let me go in a year if we find no happiness together.
- Just ... ugh:
- Here's a great idea for a holiday gift, to yourself or your favorite travel companion. Netroots Nation is offering a special holiday rollback rate to attend the 2013 convention in San Jose, June 20-23. But you only have until Thursday, Dec. 13, at midnight Pacific time to get this special rate, $245. If you've been to previous conventions, you know what a great deal this is. If you've been sitting at home or work during previous conventions, jealously watching the livestreams and the diaries from your friends who are there, now's your chance to join in at a great price. Register now at the special holiday price.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, a shout-out to #saveMI, Greg Dworkin on polls suggesting difficulties finding solutions to the Fiscal Thingy, besides taxes on the wealthy, where Americans agree even as the Gop in Congress might not. A fight over Boehner's Speakership? Well, not if the plotters don't pay closer attention to procedure. Then, filibuster reform and the myth of the "Gang of 14". Finally, what passes for "bold" solutions to the Fiscal Thingy and other problems, and the "bungling" of "the Single Biggest Story of the 2012 Campaign."
