Kostas Vaxevanis Trial Delayed A Few Days

Greek journalist on trial for outing Politicians and corporate pales, with Swiss bank accounts.  Instead of hearalding him as a hero for exposing the tax evasion the Greek Politicians enjoy, they try to send him to jail;

They might need a revolution in Greece, which is a shining beacon of how power corrupts.  The biggest problem in Greece is, the elite and the poor pay no taxes.  Oh wait, we have that problem in the US too…  And I don’t propose taxing anyone below the poverty level, plus 50%.

The Swiss press takes an unusally neutral stance; http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/news/international/Greek_editor_stands_trial_over_Swiss_accounts_list.html?cid=33834842


US Senate Races

There are some toss-ups, but the following (I say) are locked in:

Indiana – Murdock loses, toast.

Wisconsin – Thompson loses (thank the stars)

Ohio – Mandel loses, punk.

Mississippi – Akin loses. (atheists actually pray for this)

Connecticut – McMahon loses. (how much more money will she waste on gaining office?)

Virginia – Allen loses. (I am not a big fan of Kaine, but OK.)

Montana – Rehberg loses. (happy dance.)

Massachusettes: Brown loses. (won’t debate Warren again http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/10/29/scott-brown-pulls-out-of-final-debate-with-elizabeth-warren/?tid=pm_politics_pop)  Um, the storm is not your concern Scott, leave that to the Governor.

That leaves a 54 to 46 Democratic majority.  And please consider the average age of GOP members of the Senate. Lots of vacancies coming next time around…If the economy continues to improve, the GOP will be decimated by 2018.
