A new Gallup poll finds that President Barack Obama's approval rating with working-class white Americans has fallen to just 27 percent, a record-low for his presidency.

Among whites who've graduated college, Obama's approval stands at 41%, also a new low in the Gallup poll. (See graph below)

Breastfed, Homebirthed Babies Taken Away From Parents For Not Using Hospital

All three of their babies have been taken away from them and placed in the care of strangers. Levi was 10 months old when his mother, local singer and songwriter Erica May Rengo, gave birth to his twin brother and sister, at their home in Bellingham, Washington.

“Our birth was glorious,” she said, and the twins were reportedly healthy, full-term babies, who had no problem quickly figuring out how to breastfeed. The little family was overjoyed until CPS stepped in to “help.”

My Four Thanksgiving Pies Shared With You Guys

I have a very large extended family on both sides, and this year we were fortunate enough to have 26 people home for the holiday. We had our Thanksgiving celebration out at my cousins who has a huge farmhouse, and I offered to bake the pie. When the planning started and I volunteered to bake the pie (notice that is singular), the estimate was about 10 people so I said I would do peanut butter chocolate pie which I did here.

SPIEGEL: "For God's Sake, Please Stop the Aid!"—Interview with African Economics Expert

Posted 27 August 2005 by SPIEGEL

The Kenyan economics expert James Shikwati, 35, says that aid to Africa does more harm than good. The avid proponent of globalization spoke with SPIEGEL about the disastrous effects of Western development policy in Africa, corrupt rulers, and the tendency to overstate the AIDS problem.

SPIEGEL: Mr. Shikwati, the G8 summit at Gleneagles is about to beef up the development aid for Africa...

Shikwati: ... for God's sake, please just stop.

SPIEGEL: Stop? The industrialized nations of the West want to eliminate hunger and poverty.

Shikwati: Such intentions have been damaging our continent for the past 40 years. If the industrial nations really want to help the Africans, they should finally terminate this awful aid. The countries that have collected the most development aid are also the ones that are in the worst shape. Despite the billions that have poured in to Africa, the continent remains poor.

SPIEGEL: Do you have an explanation for this paradox?

Thanks For All - The Fish

I am a seriously blessed woman.
1. Let me begin with DPs #1 user. I have met him once, about a 30 second conversation at the 2008 RNC. Still, if I were "Time Magazine" I would have to pick him as the most influential person in my life these days. Yep, over Ron Paul. Ron brought me to the party, but it was Nystrom who booked the venue and kept the party rolling long after the clock struck midnight. Thanks again, Mr. Nystrom, for this charming pub where tin hats are all the fashion rage!

The fascist "tobacco free" movement

I recently graduated college with a master's degree in engineering. I have recently discovered that many of the places I have been hoping to work for have recently become "tobacco free", meaning no smoking on the premises. The irony is that the tobacco free clause is usually included in the same policy section with the equal opportunity and anti-discrimination clauses. Unfortunately, my experience and interest is in research and development, but this seems to be the area most affected by these policies.

What Does Jeb Bush do for a Living?

Bush, the former governor of Florida, has four businesses registered to the same address in the Miami suburb of Coral Gables that don’t appear to have conducted any business anywhere, according to an investigation by ThinkProgress. Bush also has a consulting firm, Jeb Bush & Associates, registered to that address.

But while the four companies’ purpose is a mystery, Bush’s other activities have been more public. Some of his business ties are with companies that might give him some of the same problems faced by Mitt Romney in his 2012 quest for the White House. Another company based at his Coral Gables office, Britton Hill Holdings, has a private equity deal with a Chinese company to acquire a firm involved in shale oil and gas shipping, according to Bloomberg.

Not Long From Now

Not Long From Now

Not long from now she’ll ask me,
While sitting on my knee,
About the ringing of the Bell again,
And the revival of liberty.

Then I’ll tell her of the rise,
Of Leviathan and his lies,
Of how we woke up again,
And tyranny’s demise.

I’ll tell her about our movement started by Ron Paul,
And about the oppressor and how we made him fall,
I’ll tell her how we stood tall again,
While responding to the call.

And the ringing of the Bell again,
Proclaiming liberty to all.

Let's fly a message over Ferguson!

Let's fly this message (or a similar message) behind a plane and over the city of Ferguson ASAP.

"Ferguson: Want to reduce crime and police brutality? Practice Open Carry!"

There are a few reasons I think we should do this...

  • It is good advice for the people of Ferguson AND for communities that have a problem with high rates of crime and/or police brutality.
  • It puts us in control of, or at least inserts us into, the Ferguson debate.
  • It would get a lot of attention from the media (probably national) and from the people of Ferguson.
