Religion is dying in the USA


A Pew research study finds that 22% of Americans, especially younger adults, now claim no official religious beliefs, the second largest group in the country, after Protestsnts (48%).

This is great news. Of course, the media darlings who love them a huckster or a Palin, or any president who closes any speech with "God bless America," might be taken aback by this. Too bad.

This shows that there still is hope for the country's future.

I believe

That I will celebrate!

Fuck the $3 DNC bullshit. Make it $25, $50, or $100 if you can.

What a run-off means for Rahm Emanual

It means he better change his shorts, cuz no matter how you cut it, it ain't purdy.

Colon, his top supporter in the Council lost. Two other close supporters are in run-offs, too. Suarez, Alderman AND Deputy Mayor for Rahm, (who ruled the Council with an iron fist) has a run-off.

For Rahm to fail to crack 50% means that his many millions did not help. It means that Obama's Netanyahu-like visit on the eve of the election did not help. (Hint to Obama - Stay out of this local race if you don't want to get splattered with the upcoming mud fight). It means that many people stayed home because they did not want to go and vote for Rahm. It means that Rahm has pretty much peaked, and is in serious trouble in the April election. It also means the Bruce Rauner's closest mayoral friend in the state may not be there after April.

Rauner - buyers' remorse?

I have buddies in both municipal, court, and police & sheriffs' offices. Despite my warnings and gentle proddings, a surprising majority of them decided to vote against Gov. Quinn and allowed Bruce "Scott" Rauner to buy the governorship.

Those who I have seen since the state of the onion message have been uniformly depressed by their decisions, especially since they are the ones who will suffer the most.

The problem Rauner has is that both houses of government are against him on most major issues. The problem that the Democrats have is that a governor still has some powers that will create strife and trouble.

Wisconsin, our lovely neighbor to the north, has suffered another decline in average wages, now $800 less than Indiana, which is far lower than Illinois. Rauner's plan is to follow the Wankerstan approach and demolish labor as a political or lobbying force.

Then again, Quinn pretty much ran a campaign as though it was designed by the DNC. No specifics, no answers, just "I'm not as bad as the other guy."
