Mitt Romney is the problem
...and the GOP, and Big Oil, and the Big Banks, and Big Energy, and the Club for Growth, and the Koch Brothers.

Worst Congress Ever
Sunday, May 13, 2012
To his credit, Aguero didn't attempt to get a penalty. He pushed through two players to even have a chance to run on to Balotelli's pass, rounded a third and refused to fall when that would have been the easy call...and beat a fourth and fifth defender AND the keeper with his speed...and scored. Monumental goal.

Kaiser workers Fight Back!
Good stuff from Kaiser workers speaking out against Kaiser Permanente's race to become "just one more greedy corporation."
Kaiser's CEO George Halvorson made $8.9 million in total compensation in 2010. What did he make in 2011 while asking these NUHW workers to give up their defined benefit pension and refusing to agree to sensible safe staffing proposals at the bargaining table?
Shame on Kaiser Permanente!

Cesaria Evora, 1941-2011
"Essa canção sempre estará nos nossos corações. Muito obrigado Cesária. Descanse em Paz..."
"Vamos a toda prisa a amar a la gente - que mueren tan rápido. A partir de hoy el mundo ya no es el mismo."
"ATÉ SEMPRE CESÁRIA, africa viva"
"Mindelo pleure la reine Evora,
Ti otu diâ… Ti otu diâ, Césaria !
Femme de l’Afrique, impératrice du Cap-Vert…
La diva aux pieds nus s’est tue, a mis le cap vers
Les cieux, en chantonnant et dansant sa Sodade,
Qui résonne désormais ici-bas de façon maussade…
Le monde pleure la reine Evora,
Au revoir… Au revoir, Césaria !"
"Sodade i'm crying.
"Une étoile qui brillera dans le beau ciel cap verdien ! Césaria, la diva aux pieds nus à la voix si mélancolique va nous manquer !"

"Kaiser, get with the program!"
Kaiser CEO George Halvorson made $7.9 million in 2009. Kaiser Permanente has made $5.7 billion in profits in the last 30 months, and yet Halvorson has the audacity to ask healthcare workers to give up their defined benefit pension, retiree health benefits and to accept deep cutbacks that will fundamentally change how Kaiser healthcare workers receive healthcare from their employer.
Kaiser's healthcare takeaway will essentially convert healthcare workers into Kaiser customers who will then be forced into incentivized "cafeteria" plans based on hours worked instead of receiving, as they do now, full coverage as part of their overall compensation.
