Paying work Open Thread

The recession has been a mixed blessing for me.  On the one hand, I’ve had almost no work.  And on the other hand, I’ve had almost no work.  You see, while I miss the income, it’s been an incredible relief to have some time.  My family keeps me plenty busy, and I was just running out of steam when the recession hit.  Since my clients’ work vanished, mine did too, and I breathed something between a mere sigh and a sigh of relief last year.

Things are starting to perk up a little, though, and for economic reasons, I need to jump on the legal work that’s coming my way.  I’d still prefer to blog, not work, but there are bills to pay, and I need to keep my legal mind in fighting trim.

I’ll get back to the blog later today (God willing).  Also, tonight I’m going to a symposium about the new antisemitism, and I may have stuff to report about that tomorrow.

Until then, please enjoy yourself here.  Suggested topics:

  1. Byrd’s death (may he RIP, and I hope for his sake that God’s not black);
  2. Obama’s leveler attempts at the G20 (God forbid America should recover unless all the other places recover equally);
  3. the Supreme Court’s wonderful gun rights decision (made possible by only one vote); and
  4. the Kagan hearings (speaking of that “made possible by only one vote”).

    A tale of a sanctuary. They may as well rename the town to Deadwood.
    Boasting a population that is 97% Hispanic, more than half foreign born, and 40% illegal, the Los Angeles County, Calif., incorporated city of Maywood has achieved the Reconquista goal. It is now as lawless and chaotic as any place in Mexico. Maywood is a warning to every city and town in America.


    MEXICO CITY – Mexican President Felipe Calderon is blaming drug cartels for the assassination of a front-running gubernatorial candidate.
    He warns drug gangs are trying to infiltrate the election process.
    Calderon said the assassination Monday of Rodolfo Torre in northern Mexico shows “organized crime is a permanent threat” and called on Mexicans to “close ranks to confront it.”
    He said organized crime “is trying to interfere in the decisions of citizens and in election processes.”
    Calderon is almost right on one point, it was him not organized crime  ” trying to interfere in the decisions of citizens and in election processes.”

    My apologies. I wrote a bit on the gun decision at the end of a comment on Bookie’s A Leftist Guide to Mis-defining Termspost above. I should have written it here.

    Just a friendly little reminder – as if you needed one! – about our wise and wonderful Democrat leadership.
    Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Of The House, on ObamaCare:

    “We have to pass this bill to find out what is in it.”
    Christopher Dodd, long-time heavyweight in the Democrat 
    leadership, on the thousand-plus-page finance reform bill
    that he co-authored:
    “No one will know until it’s actually in place how it works.”
    Never mind the law of *unintended* consequences. With these guys,
    we don’t even have the law of *intended* consequences.
    Can you imagine the hue and cry if statements such as these had come
    out of Republican leadership? In a Republican Congress???

    Byrd=Power for Life
    Kennedy=Power for Life
    People go on and on about Bush or Clinton dynasties, while ignoring the real dynasties. The one that has already slipped under Constitution limits and few people are aware of it.

    Here’s a fascinating project!  If I were to go to Europe, this would _definitely_ be on my list of things to see, places to go.  And who knows – by the time we get done with all of the financial cures O has in mind, we might just need those old skills…
