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.

Congressman Ryan Speaks

For John, BLUFI like Ryan for the big job.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I like Congressman Paul Ryan and here in The Washington Examiner is an example of why.  He has the big picture.

Congressman Ryan makes the point that political progress is because a number of groups get together to achieve some common goals.  If we were in Europe there would be a number of different political parties and they would form coalitions to achieve whatever they could agree to.  We are blessed with a two party system and thus the coalitions are within our two parties.  We need to be looking for friends, not heretics.

  Yes, there are fringe parties, but they are at the fringe and while they provide a refuge, they don't provide political power.

Sadly, when Ryan says "invaluable," in the post-Citizens United world we live in, he means the GOP can't afford to tick of the big money donors funding the crazy.

I always imagined, if I was to become a whore, I would be a high fallutin' one. That doesn't necessarily mean I'd go to the highest bidder. There's also the notion I would maintain some class, ... while selling myself.

That's, imho, what our Speaker was getting at.

Sort of like the group Progressive Change Campaign Committee?

Front page of The Boston Globe albeit below the fold.

I discount the denials.  This will not necessarily be a cake walk for Ms Hillary Clinton.
