our resolve leaves something to be desired

So far, the news is doing nothing for me. I think they've dialed-up the apathy rays again.
A Wisconsin judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday blocking the state's new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, raising the possibility that the Legislature may have to vote again to pass the bill.

Dane County District Judge Maryann Sumi granted the restraining order in response to a lawsuit filed by the district attorney alleging that Republican lawmakers violated the state's open meetings law by hastily convening a special committee before the Senate passed the bill.

Sumi said her ruling would not prevent the Legislature from reconvening the committee with proper notice and passing the bill again.
So don't get excited... and I cannot recommend highly enough that you watch yesterday's Keiser Report. If you are SERIOUS, you will watch it and listen at least twice.

Seems the Pragmatists of Groupthink may not have thought this one through.
The Newspaper Guild has joined a group of Huffington Post bloggers in protesting the site's pay policy — specifically, its lack of pay.

The union said it requested a meeting with the Huffington Post to discuss the situation. "Thus far, the request has been ignored," the guild wrote.

“The idea of going on strike when no one really notices,” Huffington said. “Go ahead, go on strike.”

The Newspaper Guild, though, has over 26,000 members.
The natural comeback for this is that blogging for free at HuffPo gives you needed exposure for your own blog. She will point to the success of FireDogLake, and The Young Turks. And, especially, let you be on strike until doomsday because there are a trillion more bloggers and celebs out there who will jump at the chance to fill your shoes.

I'd be inclined to look at this as an opportunity to reclaim your soul... but that's me.

love, 99
