Ignorant readers are apt to judge a writer by his reputation. For my part, I read only to please myself. I like nothing but what makes for my purpose.
Saturday’s top 5 Links:
It’s good to see that Andrew Cuomo has made it official and decided to throw his name into the ring for N.Y. Governor. I had been under the impression that, with the amount of talk there has been about him in one way or another about everything the man has been doing, that he was purposefully avoiding announcing his running for governor to milk the news for all the free press about how great a prosecutor he is. Free press grants great name recognition later on. If people didn’t know him before he announced, they weren’t paying attention.

It’s good to see that Baby daddy, AKA drunky smurf, AKA Darrell Issa’s body double, AKA that asshole, AKA Vito Fossella is mulling the run for his old seat. I’m certain that asshole is going to run, but he has to at least make it look like he is thinking about his future before throwing it away completely. Before he makes that decision he needs to think about how it is going to feel to have to hear the baby daddy thing and the name Laura Fay, with his wife on the sidelines. I wonder if he is willing to make the decision to let the press and those who have actual family values destroy his domestic felicity with a constant barrage of reminders of how actively he tried to destroy his marriage. Think hard Vito.

It’s good to see that we are seeing signs of employment growth. 520,000 jobs added the last two months. Payrolls are increasing. N.Y. Fed reserve President has said as much. He also says the economy will recover slower than expected, so for all that there is good news on the jobs front, there are clouds on the horizon in the form of that slowed economic recovery. Better something good than nothing good.
Viddy of the day, again with the libertardian himself, Rand Paul, this time, with commentary from Cenk Uygur.
Pic and quote of the day: A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
