Sunday morning beeyootifull music


That’s Keifer and Shawna Thompson, a husband and wife duo better known as Thompson Square. Below is Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars (Joy Williams and John Paul White) singing Safe and Sound from the Hunger Games soundtrack.

This is an open thread.

    Saw this coming. This was always the danger. So now having provoked a theatrical “war on women,” and coming to the supposed rescue, women are reassigned under the bus. He takes it all back, and even actually does a fuzzy wording trick that actually ROLLS back the EEOC rules. Who’s war on women?

      Lots of info in that report, but I’m particularly curious how Fluke herself would respond to this:

      News of the changes also came as a separate ruling on student health insurance coverage was announced by the Department of Health and Human Services this afternoon. Under that ruling, health care plans for students would be treated like those of employees of colleges and universities — meaning the colleges will have to provide contraceptive services to students without co-pay.

      Religiously affiliated colleges and universities, however, would be shielded from this ruling, according to a statement from the HHS.

      “In the same way that religious colleges and universities will not have to pay, arrange or refer for contraceptive coverage for their employees, they will not have to do so for their students who will get such coverage directly and separately from their insurer,” the statement said.

      If she can support it, she’s not what she says she’s about.

      Yep, I saw that coming, too. He truly doesn’t care about women, but he does care about reaping the political benefits of creating this storm. If women are worse off after he’s worked his “magic”, who cares? Like everything else, it’s Obama for Obama, all the time.

    Here’s Krugman making an observation about hedge funds and Obama.

    And I know for a fact that some of Obama’s big-money early backers were motivated in large part by the lure of being in the inner circle in a way that someone like Hillary, with her long record and connections, couldn’t offer.

    In other words, Obama was available to be bought. That part is correct. The rest of the post about how hedge funds’ love for Obama has turned into “blind spitting hatred” is over the top. The source article is from the New Republic which as of last week is pretty much owned by OFA, so grain of salt.

      He’s on a vitriolic and hysterical roll lately. Earlier today he was raising alarm bells at a study that showed a serious loss of employer-based health care. Which is to be expected somewhat, what with upwards of 20% of Americans shifting in the job market. Of course he’s saying this makes the health care law even MORE important, except he fails to note the whole law is based on the domination of employer-based policies, which are hovering close to 50%, down from over 70% before the downturn and the health care law.

      To my mind, he missed two points on purpose, because they hurt his boss (Obama): a) the healthcare law is unworkable because of this. The foundation upon which it was built is eroding before our eyes, and before it takes effect. And b), the health care law is partially to blame for this development, maybe even as much as the economic situation. Which is exactly what I warned about when they were talking about passing this monstrosity in the first place. More shifting of the burden downstream, to the working and lower middle classes.

    Following his win in Puerto Rico today, Romney staff wrestled Mitt to the ground before he could declare “Ich bin ein Island Mexican”.

    They’re back…

    A tweet encouraging the Occupy Wall Street movement to ‘kill’ police officers during clashes in Zuccotti Park is being investigated.
    The post, which was directed to a page on Ustream showing live footage of the protests, was allegedly written under the Twitter handle ‘smackema1’ on Saturday at 11.39pm.

    It said: ‘we wont make a difference if we dont kill a cop or 2’.
