An Occupy Wall Street group buys up almost $15 million of personal debt (for a mere $400,000), and forgives it all. Yes, you can buy debt for pennies on the dollar, because the debt's holders get frustrated collecting the debt and try to get something for it. And, unlike vulture capitalists, Occupy doesn't buy government debt so they can cripple government services.
Surprise, surprise, the "liberal" media loves covering New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's personality rather than his record. Granted, I can see the temptation, since I like his act myself. But I don't like his policies, and I certainly don't like the presumption he's a "moderate" because he bucks the far right two or three times a year. Don't words mean things anymore?
Meanwhile, The Hill describes a hunger on the left for a more liberal challenger to Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic Presidential nomination. Kudos for actually mentioning three Democrats who might qualify, though not for going on and on about Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who's said repeatedly she doesn't want the job. And why not explain how Messrs. Schweitzer, O'Malley, and Feingold might be "alternatives"?
Erika Eichelberger at Mother Jones suggests that Democrats save food stamps by joining with Republicans to kill the current farm bill. Her reasoning? Killing the farm bill would force the House to approve food stamp funding, probably "at previously authorized levels," and not doing so would be, in one Democratic aide's words, "unthinkable." But come on! Nothing is unthinkable for Republicans.
Finally, Sarah Palin says Pope Francis sounds "kind of liberal" to her -- but suggests that this impression could be the "liberal" media's fault, and that she'll have to "do (her) own homework" to figure out the truth for herself. Which she couldn't have done before she went on TV? What a waste of our time. Let's never speak of her again.
