        Me too, but nothing in my kitchen looks that delish, doesn’t quite measure up, which is a huge understatement. The only similarity in our dinner will be that we’ll also have salad, but ours won’t be in that cute little bundle. Husband would probably just crab about the odd little tree on his plate. 🙂 All looks great. Anyone know if this will be on c span, the arrivals etc.?

    The rules are for thee, not for me:

    “NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee State Representative Curry Todd (R-Collierville) has resigned his post as chairman on a special firearms task force following his DUI arrest Tuesday night.

    Todd was arrested late Tuesday night in Nashville and charged with DUI and possession of a gun while under the influence. Officers stated Todd had a loaded .38 handgun in a holster between the driver’s seat and center console….

    Todd sponsored a 2009 bill to allow people with handgun carry permits to bring their weapons into bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, provided they don’t drink. The law passed despite opposition from law enforcement and district attorney groups, and easily survived a veto from former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen.”

    ON THE LINE: President Obama called House Speaker John Boehner (R- Ohio) to congratulated him on passing the three free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea. They also had an exchange about Obama’s jobs bill and the House Republican’s proposal.

    Get the full readout after the jump ….

    This afternoon, President Obama called Speaker Boehner to congratulate him on passing the three free trade agreements. After they discussed trade, the Speaker brought up the President’s remarks today about “not having yet seen” a GOP plan for job creation, and respectfully challenged the President’s assertion. “I want to make sure you have all the facts,” the Speaker told the President. The Speaker reminded the President that House Republicans put forth a ‘Plan for America’s Job Creators’ in May, and noted that he and other members of the GOP leadership team have spoken with the President and his staff about the plan and referenced it on numerous occasions, in letters and elsewhere.

    The Speaker told the President that when he sent his jobs plan to the Hill, Republicans pledged to give it consideration, and have done so. The President was reminded of a memo written by GOP leaders outlining the specific areas where they believe common ground can be found. The Speaker also noted that a number of the President’s ideas have already been acted on in the House, including a veterans hiring bill, trade agreements, and a three percent withholding bill approved by the Ways & Means Committee today that will be considered on the House floor this month. They also discussed transportation and infrastructure, and the Speaker expressed his desire to do something on the issue, but to do it in a fiscally-responsible way.

      Wish I knew what the President’s response was. I can’t help it, I think Boehner is a bonehead!

    CHARTS: Here’s What The Wall Street Protesters Are So Angry About…



    This was an item in Steven Benen’s roundup today. It is absolutely brilliant and as Steve said you may want to bookmark this one for future reference.

      I forgot to add this paragraph ……….

      The problem in a nutshell is this: Inequality in this country has hit a level that has been seen only once in the nation’s history, and unemployment has reached a level that has been seen only once since the Great Depression. And, at the same time, corporate profits are at a record high.

      In other words, in the never-ending tug-of-war between “labor” and “capital,” there has rarely—if ever—been a time when “capital” was so clearly winning.

      I bookmarked your link. Thanks for it. When you lay out all of the facts side-by-side as this article did, it’s an airtight case against they way we’ve been trending. This inequality is unsustainable. The fact that corporations aren’t hiring and banks aren’t lending, proves that they’re not job creators so much as they are wealth hoarders. I suppose their endgame is to keep this up for another 14 months but that would be foolish and self-destructive.

      After all if you’re a corporation that keeps chasing the cheapest worker around the world, eventually there’s going to be no place left where a vibrant middle class can buy your goods. It’s enlightened self-interest to quit hoarding cash and pay workers sustainable wages to create a sustainable economy.

        I want to make sure that Bobfr sees this. It really needs to be tweeted far and wide. The author, Henry Blodget, really should be commended for taking the time to assemble these charts. The charts are so much more effective then just reading a large volume of text.

    Update: The President reportedly cut the call short saying “Listen, I gotta jump Representative Loompa. I’ve got a bigger name on the other line: DonnaDem is in the house. I look forward to your rare thaw in obstructionism at another time.”

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! 🙂 🙂 Okaaaaaaaaaaay…let’s see if I can decipher what’s on Chip’s dinner here:

          Roast beef
          white rice
          macaroni salad
          some ketchup
          Apple juice…

          Chips thanks for sharing – you are very generous…I’m not complaining – but I don’t see dessert anywhere! Where’s my dessert?

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – On October 10, U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and Minister of Knowledge Economy Joong-Kyung Choi of the Republic of Korea signed a new agreement establishing the U.S.-Korea Clean Energy Technology Partnership that will strengthen our bilateral cooperation in clean energy technology research and development (R&D).

    “The agreement will enable the United States and the Republic of Korea to expand our already strong bilateral cooperation on clean energy,” Secretary Chu said. “By working together toward our shared clean energy goals, we can promote the kind of innovation that will help win the clean energy race and create jobs in both of our nations.”
