This Is Why We Need Revolution Immediately

NEWSER – North Wests life is about as charmed as you probably assumed it to be, if Us Weeklys sources are to be believed. As Celebuzz reports, sources tell the magazine Kim and Kanyes baby has more than 200 articles of designer clothing—from a $375 silk Oscar de la Renta dress to a $200 leopard Roberto Cavalli dress to custom-made Giuseppe Zanotti shoes—including some pieces the infant has never actually worn. She also has a leather Alexander Wang dress and a $50,000 pair of diamond earrings, because what 1-year-old doesnt need a leather dress and half-carat diamond earrings?”Kim and Kanye are grateful when designers send them some pieces,” one source says. “North loves clothes and getting ready to go out. Its a lot of fun.” …

Fangate overshadows sharp debate between Gov. Rick Scott and Charlie Crist | Tampa Bay Times

In the weirdest start of a gubernatorial debate, Florida Gov. Rick Scott initially refused to take the stage Wednesday night because Democrat Charlie Crist insisted on using a fan to keep him cool.The Republican governor finally emerged at least six minutes late as flummoxed moderators struggled on live TV to figure out what to do with a bemused Crist standing solo on stage at Broward College.”Are we really going to debate about a fan? Or are we going to talk about education and the environment and the future of our state?” Crist asked. “I mean, really.”

Dow Has Its Worst Day In Years Amid Global Market Freakout

October is a month known for market panics, including the crashes of 1929 and 1987. Wednesdays action was nowhere near as bad as that. In fact, stocks staged a dramatic rally at the end of the day, leaving the Dow down just 173 points, though all of this years gains have been erased. The broad Russell 2000-stock index actually ended the day higher, a sign that the selling was limited mainly to big, high-flying stocks.A mild market freakout could even be good news to anybody worried about a market bubble after a five-year-long rally. The Dow is still up 147 percent since March 2009. Your 401k is safe.But the wild swings weve seen lately are not a great sign for the health of the market or the broader economy. The Dow opened Wednesday by immediately falling 350 points, then recovered 250 points, then lost another 360 points and then bounced back 290 points. So much for efficient markets!And this was the latest in a string of triple-digit moves in the Dow in recent weeks, both up and down. Thats not great for the blood pressure, and it was the kind of action we got in the wild days of late 2011, when the U.S. got its credit rating downgraded and everybody was worried about a possible breakup of the euro zone.

US General Ramps Up Unwarranted Fears of Mass Migration — More of the Campaign to Keep Us Angry and Scared

The Pentagon’s top commander in South America has warned that if Ebola surfaces in Central America or the Caribbean, there will be a stampede of people heading north across the Rio Grande to the U.S. to escape the disease.“If it breaks out, it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States,” Marine General John Kelly, chief of the U.S. Southern Command, said Tuesday. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.” via General: Expect ‘Mass Migration’ to U.S. if Ebola Comes to Central America | TIME.
