Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin played a greater role than previously known in arranging for wealthy contributors to donate to a powerful conservative organization in his home state as it battled a two-year campaign to recall Mr. Walker and Republican lawmakers, according to court documents released Friday.

The documents — part of a long-running investigation into whether Mr. Walker’s campaign improperly coordinated the spending of outside groups — include emails among Mr. Walker’s top aides that suggest a frenzy of fund-raising activity, including a trip to Las Vegas, to solicit unregulated contributions for the Wisconsin Club for Growth, a nonprofit conservative group, as it helped him in the successful effort to fight back recalls in 2011 and 2012.

Excited to see Walker, Perry and Christie up on that debate stage.

This is really, really bad. Sneaky funding through front groups is questionable at best. When the candidate seeks such funding, things are really bad.

AT-LARGE SENATE ELECTION UPDATE
As of 1:00 PM EDT, Saturday

Votes: 68
Last voter: Oak Hills
Quota=12

Summary:The race between the top six candidates remains tight. Any one of the six could be the odd one out at midnight on Sunday. Bacon King has gained some ground on the top five since our last update and may have an outside chance of winning a seat. Independent candidates Poirot, GA Worth, and Mechaman have each won a few votes, but continue to lag behind and appear unlikely to finish in the top five.

COUNT II
✓12 - Polnut
11 - Deus
10 - Lumine
10 - Alfred  F. Jones

No Phil, the Premier League began last week.

Also good to know that we still have exactly the same problems as last year and Wenger hasn't done anything to fix them. Roll Eyes

It depends on which states' leaders are willing to go how far to win. In theory it could be whichever state gets its hands on the President's football first, whichever is quickest in salvaging fissile material from the warheads to create radiological weapons, or - in the case of Georgia - the government's willingness (or lack thereof) to risk setting off a global smallpox pandemic.

Even the slightest of possibilities of in-fighting between American republics illustrates once again how utterly batsh**t insane it is for a country to maintain advanced, sizable arsenals of WMDs.

It would not be a long enough conflict - hours or at most a few days - so the populations, economies, and technological prowess of each state would have negligible affects on the outcomes. If you want to explore another hypothetical of the states creating alliances, however, I guess it would get a lot more complicated.

There are two articles here: one is a transcript of a speech by David Grossman at a Peace rally, calling for a broad coalition against the growing extremism in Israeli politics and society.

The second one is by an Orthodox rabbi, Yuval Sherlow who seems to agree with Grossman's key points, but who argues that Grossman is turning off the Israeli public in some of his metaphors, and is thus digging himself into a deeper hole.

I personally agree with Grossman and his tone, though Sherlow is correct in arguing that it will take Israeli public support to seek a solution.

Also, old interview with a Hadash party member on why a one-state is unworkable

People speaking about one bi-national state are only proving that they are totally separated from reality. Uniting within a single state a very modern society from the first world and a very poor society living in conditions of the third world is a sure recipe for an explosion of the situation in this country. At the very same time abandoning the idea of a Palestinian state is surrendering to Israel’s extremist right wing who all the time try to establish the idea of Eretz Yisrael Shlema [Greater Israel]. You can see that the extreme Arab nationalistic idea is also at the very same idea an extreme Jewish nationalistic idea. This is proof why this idea is not something more than a very imaginary illusion.

Nah, since if she wins in 2016, it's very likely Dems will take (or retain) the Senate as well.

Not likely. I expect American Jews to 100% anti-ISIS.
