A look back at today's big stories

ELECTION 2012

The Romney campaign has finally conceded that it lost Florida.  Meanwhile Mitt Romney is really really sad. At least he can keep starring at his would be President-Elect website. Is it bad that Romney's sadness gives me so much joy? With Democrats still riding high off their successes on Tuesday night, The Atlantic looks at what an Obama second term will look like.

Jon Stewart takes a looks at Karl Rove's Fox News meltdown. Also Rachel Maddow tells the right wing that it's about time to pop the little bubble they've been living in

Joe Biden's first act in his second term as Vice President? Apparently swinging by Pawnee, Indiana.

GAY RIGHTS

In light of the gay marriage successes on election day, The New York Times says that anti-gay activists need to get on the right side of history. Although for those hoping that marriage equality may be coming to New Jersey, they may have to wait longer than they expected

  1. Obama Wins – Markets Plunge

    MSM Ignored Oct. 30 Report Showing US Dropped Out of Top 10 in Prosperity Index

    A JP Morgan economist "points out that 8.3 million people are working in part-time jobs even though they'd prefer full-time work. Unfortunately, because of President Obama’s health care law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), workers in the hotel, restaurant, and retail industries could be pushed into part-time jobs working less than 30 hours per week."

    Darden Restaurants, a casual dining chain best known for their Red Lobster, Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants, is "experimenting with limiting the hours of some of its workers to avoid health care requirements under the Affordable Care Act when they take effect in 2014".

    Kroger will soon join the ranks of Darden Restaurants and slash the hours of its non-exempt (hourly) workers to avoid millions in Obamacare penalties.

    That's Obama's America.

  2. "You'll note I've said "they" won. Not "we." I'm not sure who "we" may be any more. I wonder where this "victory" leaves so many of us -- of any sexual orientation -- whose relationships don't fit the respectable matrimonial model. As a friend of mine said , on national TV, suggests that marriage is the ultimate human right: "Gee, what about having enough to eat? A roof over one's head? How about freedom?" RCB
