So an insider has unceremoniously dumped a number of internal documents from the Heartland Institute, a Koch front group. And it's a doozy. People are making a fuss over the "controversy" based climate denialism, but that's so obvious, it's not what intrigued me. Read below the fold...

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration, state attorneys general, and, perhaps, the nation's largest banks are close to a final settlement on the years-long struggle over allegations of massive foreclosure fraud, according to several sources familiar with the talks. And the final details of the arrangement, according to the source who revealed them, will apparently not preclude prosecutors and regulators from taking legal action against many of the common abuses during the house bubble. It remains to be seen whether all parties will ultimately sign off on the language. Read below the fold...

Ohio voters last night voted overwhelmingly against both Republican and Democrat corporate-favoring policies in a referendum. Senate Bill 5, passed by the Republican-dominated legislature and signed into law by Republican governor John Kasich, was shot down by sixty-one percent, too large a margin for the GOP to rig the vote count in its favor.

Most of the unemployed no longer receive benefits (AP)
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The jobs crisis has left so many people out of work for so long that most of America's unemployed are no longer receiving unemployment benefits.
Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent - a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly one-third of America's 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more. Read below the fold...

I had a conversation with a man at work today and mentioned, in passing, Occupy Wall Street. Despite many areas of agreement between the two of us, he launched into a tirade about ACORN and SEIU paying homeless people to protest. This man is a born again Christian and a devotee of right wing hate radio, but sometimes, he makes sense and since he is looking at hard times economically (he is a contractor for the company I work for, not an employee), I thought he might respond favorably to mention of Occupy Wall Street. Nope. Does anyone have any ideas of how to reach someone like this? Read below the fold...
