Feeling sorry for yourself? Get over it. Player With Brain Tumor Fulfills Basketball Dream
Excerpt: Much depends on Hill's health and energy as she deals with an inoperable brain tumor that has left her with just months to live. In between making two layups that started and finished Sunday's 66-55 victory over

General News and Comment
I think you can call it a wave election for Republicans, even though I'm disappointed in NH. Brown came from behind but not quite far enough, Alas. I think the GOP will pick up
and Louisiana, but probably not Virginia, though the GOP
candidate out-performed the polls by 8 points. The GOP prevailed in the
governors' races, which were supposed to be a democrat bright spot, notably in deep
blue Massachusetts, Maryland
But 2010 was also a wave--and Obama won in 2012. You shouldn't think this means
the GOP will win in 2016. Midterm elections have lower turnouts, and
Republicans are generally more motivated to vote than Democrats. That's why we
called a cold, rainy election day in Massachusetts
"Republican weather," and why the GOP usually has a better chance in
special elections. The turnout in midterms tends to be older, better educated,
more informed about politics and have fewer minority voters. That changes in
presidential years. If you want to win in 2016, start now. ~Bob
I think someone has beaten me to this, but I think we can now expect a hurricane of executive orders, as Barry tries to rule by decree until the new Congress is sworn in, betting that neither the lame duck nor the next Congress will challenge him. He may also tell himself he can sustain any veto in the new Congress. But can he? His mojo is clearly gone. If McConnell and Boehner decide to stand up to him (ROTFLMAO), how many Dem senators would take his side? In a healthy system I'd expect two years of vigorous hand to hand legislative combat. But we'll probably have more speeches and golf. --Tom H.

It’s a Wave: Republicans Take US Senate, Build Majority in House, Grab Governorships. By Josh Siegel
Excerpt: In a near-sweep of yesterday’s midterm elections, Republicans shifted the balance of power in the U.S. Senate, gaining at least seven seats, widened their majority in the House by at least 11 seats and defeated Democrats in 24 governor’s races.
An unhappy electorate is toughest on Obama and the Democrats. By Dan Balz
Excerpt: Campaign 2014 surpassed its advance billing, as an electorate that was deeply unhappy with all its leaders handed the biggest rebuke to President Obama and the Democrats by giving Republicans control of the Senate. For Democrats, election night turned out far worse than any of them had feared.
Dems off the ‘Mark.’ By Carter Eskew
Excerpt: If you want to know just how strong the Republican tide was last night, consider that in the wave election years 1980, 1986, 1994 and 2006, 27 total incumbent U.S. senators lost their bids for reelection. The vast majority of those races were very close; the average losing margin was less than four points, and that average is weighed down by George McGovern’s loss in 1980 (39.4 percent of the vote) and Rick Santorum’s in 2006 (41.3 percent). Yesterday, one Democrat, Mark Pryor, didn’t break 40 percent of the vote and only one, Kay Hagan came within four points of the victor (47.3 percent).

Scott Walker elected to second term, third election victory in four years
Scott Walker’s re-election today will crazy up the crazies. By Dave Blaska
Excerpt: Will Scott Walker be elected governor of
Wisconsin for the third
time in four years? The answer is yes. Walker
will win because Professor Charles Franklin’s Marquette
Law school poll says so — and by the same 7-point margin Walker
won the recall election, by the very margin Franklin called then. Walker will win because The
Capital Times poll still shows Burke stubbornly ahead. (I heard Dave Blaska
speak at "Pints and Politics" election night. A conservative blogger

'Lame Duck' Obama: 'Worst Situation Since Eisenhower. 'Republicans take back the Senate as Obama admits to voter 'frustration in the government, polarization has gotten worse.'
Excerpt: Obama showed his disappointment on Tuesday night, speaking on a
show where he admitted "this is probably the worst possible group of
states for Democrats since Dwight Eisenhower."..."There are a lot of
states that are being contested where they just tend to tilt Republican, and
Democrats are competitive, but they tend to tilt that way," said the
president, who will be a "lame duck" until presidential elections in
2016.... "They know things have gotten better from where they were six
years ago, but they don't see the kind of cooperation between Democrats and
Republicans they'd like to see." (Recent polls show majority of US
citizens think US on the road the Hell in a hand-basket (or some such) and O
thinks "things are better than they were six years ago." Well,
that tells US what his goals for the country are, doesn't it? --Barb)

Around the world, harsh words for ‘lame duck’ Obama. By Adam Taylor
Excerpt: Before voting was even finished, newspaper was already pretty sure that President Obama would be the source of Democratic failure in the midterm elections. "Obama always utters 'Yes, we can,' which led to the high expectations people had for him. But he has done an insipid job, offering nearly nothing to his supporters," the paper said in an op-ed published Tuesday. "

Ben Carson Officially Switches Political Parties
Excerpt: It’s not just the United States Senate that switched political parties on Election Day. Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon and conservative phenomenon who rocketed to fame when he challenged Barack Obama at a prayer breakfast last year, also officially changed his political affiliation, moving from independent to Republican. The step is another indication

about politics. ~Bob)
Government Never Changes
I'm reading American Slavery, American Freedom, a very interesting history of early
Virginia. In the 1600s,
the Virginia Assembly complained that an act of parliament affecting their
trade was the result of avaricious men "whose sickle has been over long in
our harvest." I laughed out loud--nothing changes. Government is still
where "avaricious men" got to put their sickle in your harvest.
Certain politicians think businesses don't create jobs - but they've never worked anywhere!
How can people like Hilary and Obama talk about who and what makes jobs, when they have never had a real job in their lives, have always lived since college among the "elite", and don't even know the guy who molds the tires or puts jet fuel in the 747 or works high steel? But the elitist combination of arrogance and ignorance makes them bulletproof from mere reality. The only good thing is that this arrogance leads them to make the kind of statements that tell all the rest of us just how out of touch with the real world they are. --
From the forwarded email: I think some people in politics don't have a clue
about a free market and economy based on these principles, couple with an
ignorance of the Constitution. And Big government does not create jobs, it
creates waste! Please reference the following and pass on to many others: This

Football, the Newest Partisan Divide. By David Leonhardt
Excerpt: To the list of issues that divide the country along partisan lines, you can add an unusual item: football. Yes, virtually every slice of
still watches football in enormous numbers. But blue America — particularly the highly
educated Democratic-leaning areas of major metropolitan areas — is increasingly
deciding that it doesn’t want its sons playing football. The number of boys
playing high school football has fallen 15 percent over the last six years in
both Minnesota and Wisconsin, according to the National
Federation of State High School Associations. (John Kass, the Chicago Tribune's
token conservative pundit, thinks football will die out, due to the growing
evidence of long term neurological damage to many players. I love football, but
this gives me pause as well. Of course, if conservatives turn against football,
liberals will say it's a plot to keep young, black males from becoming
financial successful through the sport. ~Bob)
Obama lied? E-mail points to White House involvement in USDA’s firing of Shirley Sherrod. By Mary Clare Jalonick
Excerpt: A 2010 e-mail from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says his department was “waiting for the go-ahead” from the White House before accepting the resignation of Shirley Sherrod, according to newly released documents, despite Obama administration assertions that her ouster was Vilsack’s decision alone. (Show me your shocked face. ~Bob)
Sizing America Up. In today’s foreign-relations climate, even a Jimmy Carter would seem like a godsend. By Victor Davis Hanson
Excerpt: A weak, lame-duck Barack Obama, who has now eroded a once exuberant Democratic party, will be even weaker in the next two years. If Democratic senators who had been his stalwart supporters — voting with him over 97 percent of the time — campaigned on not wanting any connection with Obama, one can imagine what our enemies abroad think of him. If Obama adopted policies of neo-appeasement when he enjoyed a 65 percent approval rating in 2009, one can imagine his approach when his positives dip below 40 percent.
Excerpt: The menacing letter sent out to a million New York Democrats to bully them into voting was written by a top campaign strategist who was appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo himself, sources told The Post. The revelation comes as a “circular firing squad” of finger-pointing has erupted over who is responsible for the letter, which was sent out last week by the New York State Democratic Committee and caused “panic” in the Cuomo camp, sources said.
's Maduro to raise minimum
Excerpt: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says he will increase the minimum wage by 15% starting in December. The raise, the third this year, comes amid an annual inflation rate of 63.4%.
Right-to-Work Laws Make Unions More Accountable
Excerpt: Much opposition to paying union dues resides in the concern that unions will use the dues for political activity. While it is possible for a worker, even in a non-right-to-work state, to "opt out" of his dues being used for political purposes, Sherk says that it is a difficult thing to do in practice. Moreover, he explains that mandatory dues make unions less responsive to workers' concerns; because employees are required to pay dues regardless of union activity, unions have little incentive to listen to the concerns of their members. According to Sherk, in non-right-to-work states, unions charge their members higher dues and give their union officers higher salaries than in right-to-work states. When states implement right-to-work legislation and make union dues voluntary, unions become more responsive to their members.
Excerpt: There’s no argument that, until recently, universities deserved their reputations as bastions of male privilege and outright sexism. But times have changed. Many of the common, negative depictions of the plight of academic women are based on experiences of older women and data from before the 2000s, and often before the 1990s. That’s not to say that mistreatment doesn’t still occur — but when it does, it is largely anecdotal, or else over generalized from small studies. ... Wendy M. Williams and Stephen J. Ceci are professors of human development at Cornell.
Countries Boost Incomes, Reduce Poverty with Capitalism
Excerpt: From 1990 to 2011, the percent of the world's population living in extreme poverty fell from 36 percent down to 15 percent. Why? Douglas Irwin, economics professor at
says the answer is simple: capitalism. The drop in poverty over the last quarter-century
is the greatest drop in poverty in world history, writes Irwin, and it is due
to the fact that developing countries implemented business-friendly economic
policies. He offers a few examples: Dartmouth College

Voter Fraud Threatens to
Destroy Democracy - Seriously North Carolina
Excerpt: Over the years James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have proven, time and again, that the things Democrats pretend don’t exist – really do. Whether at ACORN, Planned Parenthood or even in our supposedly non-partisan polling stations. Liberals like to pretend that voter fraud is not an issue of any seriousness – that the concerns are simply trumped up attempts by conservatives to hide our “closet” racism. The facts don’t bear that out. The facts lead us to believe that Democrats actually approve of voter fraud because voter fraud inordinately benefits Democrats. (But see above. ~Bob)

Tuesday reported voting machine troubles, while in Colorado the

others that have arisen Tuesday, raised questions about the integrity of the
American election system, which has taken a bludgeoning in recent years because
of incidents of fraud. In Virginia Beach, officials with the campaign of Rep.

Election Eve Dump: Justice Department Releases 64,280 Pages Of ‘Fast And Furious’ Docs
Excerpt: “The sheer volume of last night’s document production — which consists entirely of documents that the Justice Department itself acknowledges are not covered by executive privilege — shows that the president and the attorney general attempted to extend the scope of the executive privilege well beyond its historical boundaries to avoid disclosing documents that embarrass or otherwise implicate senior Obama administration officials,” reads the oversight committee press release. According to the press release, around two-thirds of the released documents are “well outside the scope of Executive Privilege.”

Obamacare/Government Healthcare News
Excerpt: Republican candidates won a decisive victory at the voting booth on Tuesday, in all races: House, Senate, governorships and state legislatures. The future of Obamacare has never looked worse. The next battle is more daunting: the Republican Party needs to avoid shooting itself in the foot, govern in a way that achieves results rather than perpetuates partisan bickering and continue to develop patient-centered health reform for the post-Obamacare future. Although Obamacare itself will not be repealed until January 2017, Republican success yesterday gives depth, resilience and energy to the post-Obamacare health reform movement.
Here is a list of some priorities for the new Congress:
Majority of ObamaCare Users Will Drop Their Coverage. By Daniel Greenfield
Excerpt: That’s bad news for ObamaCare and it’s worse news because that majority is increasingly drawn from the middle class which is one more step toward turning ObamaCare into Medicaid. Fifty-one percent of respondents in a survey of last year’s Obamacare exchange customers don’t plan to purchase an exchange plan this year, according to a Bankrate Health Insurance Pulse survey out Monday.
All ages see higher premiums under Obamacare. By Philip Klein
Excerpt: Monthly premiums for health insurance soared in 2014, the first year of Obamacare’s full implementation, according to a new study. The report by HealthPocket.com — a site that allows consumers to compare health plans — compared rates from 2013 and 2014. “The analysis of pre- and post-Obamacare health insurance in the individually purchased health insurance market demonstrates a clear increase of average premiums across age groups and both sexes,” researchers found.

All of that could be the subject of a federal court hearing in
Wednesday, where a lawsuit challenges as unlawful the executive orders Obama
used to unilaterally alter Obamacare, without any approval or endorsement from
Congress, which wrote the law.

Democrats' "War on the Poor:" Loss of Coal Will Boost Power Costs by 25 Percent
Excerpt: Companies have announced that 27 gigawatts (27,000 megawatts) of coal power will be permanently shut down by 2020, but according to a report from Standard & Poor's, between 40 and 75 gigawatts of coal power might be shut down by the end of the decade. One megawatt, according to Naureen S. Malik and Harry Weber of Bloomberg, can supply power for 800 homes. Malik and Weber report that 18 percent of the units closed by the end of 2015 will be replaced with renewable energy and natural gas. What do the closures mean for electricity costs? According to a new report from the Brattle Group, the loss of coal will increase the price of power by 25 percent for energy grids that currently supply power for one-third of the nation. The group says that the
Midwest and Northeast will be most
affected, as the areas get especially cold in the wintertime.

Excerpt: The report did not mention at which hospital 60-year-old Halamia Shcata was being treated but did note that her condition is critical. She is reportedly suffering from late-stage cancer. Hamas leaders continually call for the destruction of the Jewish State on the political level but also send their sick family members to
Israel for medical care. Marzouk’s
sister, Shcata, is the latest to receive medical treatment in Israel. Two
weeks ago, it was reported that Gazan Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh had turned to
for emergency medical treatment for one of his 13 children. Haniyeh’s
mother-in-law and his granddaughter were also given medical care at Israeli
hospitals. The ultimate hypocrites. Call for their annihilation but depend on

used for blood transfusions when Islamic State fighters are injured. They are
paid to inform on people who are disloyal or speak out against the Islamic
State. They are trained to become suicide bombers. They are children as young
as 6 years old, and they are being transformed into the Islamic State's
soldiers of the future. (Understanding the extremity of the views of these
total fanatics is important. This is why they are very dangerous, to all other
Muslims as well as to everyone else in the world, but Westerners first. Indoctrinating
child soldiers is one of the most awful and long lasting atrocities there is. That
is how Pol Pot raised a corps of teenage boys to commit horrific murders with
never a qualm. And one more time... this is NOT about all Muslims or about
Islam as a religion, it's about how a segment of those in the religion can read
it as a demand to be brutal killers and merciless bosses of a religious state. But
when they are this organized, this smart, this well supported, they have to be
taken very seriously, and in the end, they must be smashed as the Nazis were,
for the sake of everyone. But where is the leadership needed to accomplish
this? -- Del)
