The Wrap-Up: November 8, 2011


All the cool kids are doing it.
On the ballot in Ohio is Issue 2, a referendum to overturn that legislature's move to restrict collective bargaining rights.

Here is an overview of the election stakes in 3 states (though one of those is talked about in the previous link).

Burke Burnett was interviewed by MSNBC's Thomas Roberts about the attack on him in Texas.

National Hockey League scout Patrick Burke had THIS to say about gay people in sports (primarily hockey of course).

The "Affordable health Care Act" has been found to be constitutional by a Federal Appeals Court. The shock is that the judges are considered conservative icons.

Penn State head coach Joe Paterno
West Virginia schools are facing opposition as the plan to enact anti-bullying policies that include protecting victims of anti-LGBT bullying.

In the midst of the child-abuse/cover-up scandal that has rocked Penn State football, longtime head coach Joe Paterno (he's a college football institution) is facing pressure to step down.

As I was writing this, it was reported that Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi had agreed to resign.

It appears as though Michele Bachmann has no problem with unemployed people starving. What a classy lady.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)
Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is calling for an increase in funding for HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention by the United States and its allies.

If you still need to know what the Occupy Movement is about, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) breaks it down for you.

In an effort to take back the nation from the 1%, 650,000 people moved their money from big banks to credit unions and community banks in October alone, which is more than in all of 2010.

And one last reminder to get out there and vote today. HERE is what Virginia voters need to see before heading out to the polls.
