Re-creating the Glass-Steagall Act or re-instating the Glass-Steagall Act is a very good idea and it should be done immediately.

Ty, Tom.

Glass-Steagall should never have been repealed in the first place. We need it back and fast! Thanks, Cat Man.

Wonderful news about the new apartment TC – an elevator AND an air conditioner do sound mandatory for someone with COPD! I will be praying hard that all goes well for you with it…. I love the fact that the Glass Steagall Act might be re-introduced – every country should have something like it!

Please sign petition after reading it:

Sign on to the 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act
Too many Main Streets have paid the price for risky gambling on Wall Street.
Maria Cantwell, Elizabeth Warren, and others have introduced legislation to restore the Glass-Steagall Act that separated risky investment banking from regular savings banking until 1999 -- and modernize it so our financial system is safer and bank bailouts become a thing of the past.
Senators Cantwell and Warren are teaming up with Progressives United to ask all supporters to stand with us and help rebuild that firewall.
Sign on as a citizen co-sponsor now.

Puzzle — 3:58 Thanks Jerry for being on the lookout and protecting me!

The New Yorker — With all of the shenanigans lately in Texas, it is a wonder any woman would want to live there.

I heard on the news tonight that the Texas Senate passed the anti abortion bill that will now be signed into law by Perry sometime this weekend. So much for access to well woman care like cancer screenings etc since the bill will mean the closure of all but about 5 clinics. I also heard that some law suits over this mess and what it means to women are looming.

NY Times — And when some areas start to look like Darfur, what will the Republicanus/Teabaggers say? Maybe that is a little extreme, but I think you understand what I am saying. For a bunch of Bible thumping pseudo Christians, this Republicanus/Teabagger dominated House knows nothing of compassion. They only know greed and control. I think it is time for the real Jesus to clear the temple again!

Bloomberg — Great stuff! But I agree, with this Republicanus/Teabagger dominated House that supports Wall Street, there isn't a chance it will pass. It puts too much regulation in place and it cuts down the amount of funds that banksters can play with. I think a snowball in hell has a better chance. However, it will, as you say, let the voters know who represents whom.

Cartoon — Just go straight up and don't stop until you hit Alpha Centaurus!
