Donald Trump 'statesman of the year' dinner is a sell out in Sarasota | Florida politics blog: The Buzz | Tampa Bay Times | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it

It's a sell out for The Donald.

 

The Sarasota GOP said today it has sold more than 950 tickets for Sunday's "2012 Statesman Dinner" honoring Donald Trump. “This is the largest crowd we have ever had attend a ticketed function," party chairman Joe Gruters said. "There has never been anything like it, the press coverage, the excitement and the overwhelming number of people wanting to witness Mr. Trump receive the honor of Statesman of the Year has been bigger than anything we have ever dealt with before."

Vendors: Congressman David Rivera aided Democratic ringer candidate, used cash-stuffed envelopes | Naked Politics | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it

Fueled with $43,000 in secret money, Republican Rep. David Rivera helped run a shadow campaign that might have broken federal laws in last week’s Democratic primary against his political nemesis Joe Garcia, according to campaign sources and finance records.

 

As part of the effort, a political unknown named Justin Lamar Sternad campaigned against Garcia by running a sophisticated mail campaign that Rivera helped orchestrate and fund, campaign vendors said.

Paul Ryan: Randian poseur

Paul Ryan: Randian poseur | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it
Mitt Romney couldn't have chosen a better example of the fakery at the heart of today's GOP...

 

Paul Ryan was born into a well-to-do Janesville, Wisc. family, part of the so-called “Irish mafia” that’s run the city’s construction industry since the 19th century. When his lawyer father died young, sadly, the high-school aged Ryan received Social Security survivor benefits. But they didn’t go directly to supporting his family; by his own account, he banked them for college. He went to Miami University of Ohio, paying twice as much tuition as an Ohio resident would have; the in-state University of Wisconsin system (which I attended) apparently wasn’t good enough for Ryan. After his government-subsidized out-of-state education, the pride of Janesville left college and went to work for government, where he’s spent his entire career, first serving Republican legislators and then in his own Congressional seat, with occasional stints at his family-owned construction business when he needed a job (reportedly he also drove an Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile for a while).

White Men Are Fleeing Congress

White Men Are Fleeing Congress | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it
When the dust clears, it's likely that white males will constitute a minority of House Democrats for the first time—a trend with big implications...

 

As these numbers make clear, the parties are separating by race and gender. And because women and minorities view government differently, and want different things from it, than white men do, this change both tracks and exacerbates the partisan polarization that is consuming Washington.

Lance Armstrong said he would not fight the charges brought by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which means he will lose his seven Tour de France titles and all awards and money he won since August 1998.

 

Armstrong, who won the Tour de France an unprecedented seven straight times, said that he would not continue to contest the charges levied against him by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which claimed that he doped and was one of the ringleaders of systematic doping on his Tour-winning teams.

Spanish church mural ruined by well-intentioned restorer

Spanish church mural ruined by well-intentioned restorer | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it

Somewhere in the north-eastern Spanish city of Borja, an elderly woman is probably praying that the road to hell is not really paved with good intentions.

 

There can be little doubt that the woman, identified only as an octogenarian local, was just trying to help when she noticed that the face of the scourged Christ on the wall of a small church in the city was looking a bit faded, and decided to freshen it up a bit.

 

Sadly for her – and Elías García Martínez, the 19th-century artist who painted the mural – her brush skills were not quite up to the job.

In the Superrich, Clues to Romney’s Tax Returns - Common Sense

In the Superrich, Clues to Romney’s Tax Returns - Common Sense | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it
Based on experts’ analysis of data on ultrarich taxpayers, Mitt Romney has almost certainly been paying income taxes, but perhaps at a very low rate.

 

It so happens that this summer the Internal Revenue Service released data from the 400 individual income tax returns reporting the highest adjusted gross income. This elite ultrarich group earned on average $202 million in 2009, the latest year available. And buried in the data is the startling disclosure that six of the 400 paid no federal income tax.

Man will walk on Mars within a generation, says Astronomer Royal - Telegraph | More @SteveBeste | Scoop.it
After Nasa successfully landed its Curiosity probe on Monday, Britain's Astronomer Royal said he believed it was only a matter of time before an astronaut walked on Mars.

 

Lord Rees of Ludlow said the US space agency's mission to determine whether the Red Planet could have supported life was the first step in accessing Earth's nearest neighbour.

 

He said the exploration project could mark the start of the "post-human era" despite the risks associated with travelling into the solar system.

 

"It is foolish to claim, as some do, that mass emigration into space offers escape from Earth’s problems," he said, writing in the Times.
