I think it is time to finish reading "The American Jobs Act"

P. Diddy does not subscribe to Romney's "Borrow money from your parents."

What kind of nonsense is this? 

If a student earns a scholarship, yet alone four, it is an honor to receive it.

CONGRATULATIONS, Justin, you earned it. 

Jealousy hurts. Someone owns Justin Combs an apology.

LOS ANGELES - Amid questions (click here) on whether it's appropriate for a rich man's son to receive free tuition, the son of hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs is defending the $54,000-a-year football scholarship he received from UCLA.
Justin Combs, 18, says he worked for it, and UCLA is pointing out that athletic scholarships do not come from pools of funds earmarked for poor but deserving students.
UCLA announced on Feb. 1 Combs -- whose father's fortune is estimated at around a half-billion dollars -- was among the players signing letters of intent to play for the Bruins.
Combs -- a 5-foot-9, 170-pound defensive back reported to have graduated with a 3.75 GPA from New York's New Rochelle Iona Prep -- announced in November that he would attend UCLA, which entailed turning down scholarship offers from Illinois, Virginia and Wyoming....

Get Out the Vote on Tuesday!

Marquette University Law School Poll (click here) has the best statistics with the lowest quotient of error.

Walker is a typical Right Winger in demographics; he polls well with upper income caucasian men, married women and those without a college education. That demographic group gives him a slight edge over Barrett, unless there is a large turnout including minority voters.
The Marquette polling also sheds some light on how attitudes toward Walker vary geographically.
Using the state's media markets as a measure, the governor is running above his statewide approval rating (49 percent) in three regions: the Green Bay market, where his approval is 56 percent; the state's northern TV markets (combining Wausau with two Minnesota markets that reach into Wisconsin, Duluth and the Twin Cities), where his approval is 58 percent; and the portion of the 10-county Milwaukee TV market outside the city of Milwaukee, where his approval rating is 57 percent.
Walker is far below his statewide approval rating in two places: the state's largest city, Milwaukee, where his approval rating is 30 percent; and the Madison TV market, an 11-county area where his approval rating is 37 percent.
Walker is right around his statewide number in the La Crosse/Eau Claire market.
In most of these places, Walker's 2012 approval rating is a few points below the percentage of the vote he got in the same areas in 2010. The one exception to that is northern Wisconsin. In the three northern TV markets combined (Wausau, Twin Cities and Duluth), Walker's 2012 approval rating of 58 percent is several points higher than his 2010 vote in the same region of the state, 54 percent. That suggests northern Wisconsin could be a stronghold for Walker on Tuesday.
Otherwise, Walker's standing in the 2012 polling reflects the present-day geography of Wisconsin politics, with Democrats strong in Milwaukee, Madison and the southwest, and Republicans strong on the periphery of Milwaukee County, much of the Fox Valley and along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
