The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Yes, the 2012 Election is Here

From Law Professor Ann Althouse we have this link to an article on the 24 non-trivial contenders for the Republican nomination for the Presidential race in 2012.
Jonah Goldberg identifies "24 people who are beneficiaries of nontrivial presidential buzz."
"Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, John Thune, Tim Pawlenty, Mitch Daniels, Mike Pence, Rick Santorum, Haley Barbour, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, David Petraeus, Ron Paul, Jeb Bush, John Bolton, Bob McDonnell, Jim DeMint, Chris Christie, Herman Cain, Gary Johnson, Judd Gregg, Marco Rubio, and Rick Perry."
Each one of these, except for one or two, are names that are out there and have been on my political, although not necessarily my presidential radar screen these last several months.  That said, I don't think that General David Petraeus is a player this go-around.  He is working at denying it and he already has a day job.

My choices, at this time, are Chris Christie and Herman Cain.

I know.

But, about a week ago, The Daily Caller had a report that Mr Cain, former head of Godfather Pizza, was going to soon form an exploratory committee.

At least he has run something larger than his classroom.

No president has been reelected when unemployment was greater than 6% (or was it 8%?).

Maybe that was 17%?

In response, Congress passes the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act. (More)
Top tax rate raised to 79 percent.
Economic recovery continues: GNP grows a record 14.1 percent; unemployment falls to 16.9 percent.
Germany becomes the second nation to recover fully from the Great Depression, through heavy deficit spending in preparation for war.

Some people play "fantasy baseball". Other people start handicapping partisan political presidential primaries two years in advance. I'm not sure which is the greater waste of time, though I've always said to those critical of my fantasy sports habit that the main thing is that it's fun.
