The End of the World Again

Robert Fitzpatrick will be staying at home when his second-predicted end of everything happens on Oct 21st. This time, he says, it's serious:

(if it was the end of the world I don't think I'd want to be in Port Richmond for it.)

An interesting take on the financial situation that doesn't call for eating the rich:

Naomi Wolf was arrested protesting at a HuffPo awards ceremony. Andrew Cuomo got an award; he opposes the rich people taxing despite supposedly being a leftie. Don't get me started on him:

Peter Shumlin is against progressive taxation as well.

Progressive taxation seems to have become the new third rail of politics, displacing social security (not good news for the good old SS program).

Paul- it's become a defining line of who's still a leftie and who's a sellout. Interesting times...

He wasn't serious before?

Lawless- well, the May date came and went and nothing happened, so he said it was just a trial time but now, this time, October 21st is the real, REAL end of the world.

Oh, it's serious this time. Good to know that. However, I am going to keep my plans for that week and wait until it is really, really serious
