Kim Jong-un is Time
readers´ Person of the Year

United Press International, by Kate Stanton

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 12/13/2012 1:25:02 PM

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is the people´s choice for Time magazine´s Person of the Year. With 5.6 million votes, the Onion´s "Sexist Man Alive" beat out Jon Stewart, Undocumented Immigrants, Hillary Clinton, Malala Yousafzai, Ai Weiwei and the Mars Rover. Kim is the reader´s choice, but that doesn´t mean he´ll land Time´s Person of the Year cover. That decision ultimately stands with the magazine´s editors. “While we don’t make our selection based on the poll results,” Time´s executive editor Radhika Jones said in a recent Q&A, “it’s always interesting to see where some of our preferred candidates end

Kim Jong oink could win the pot-bellied pig award at the county fair, but Man of the Year? Cripes´ the dude´s a psychotic spoiled brat with an eating disorder.
Poll manipulation like this is how we ended up with 0bama in office.

LOL. It´s always astounding how poll results we disagree with mean the poll was ´manipulated´, while polls with our desired results were honest and well done. It never fails.

I think the vote was more to highlight the idiocy of the list than voters true feelings. Here´s a link to the list: http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/completelist/0,29569,2107952,00.html

Go look at it and tell me it´s not one of the most stupid lists you ever seen.

Iran has signed a deal to sell Iraq arms and ammunition worth £117 million in a move that would break a UN embargo on weapons sales by Tehran. The agreement was reached at the end of November, documents showed, just weeks after Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki returned from Washington, where he lobbied the Obama administration for extra weapons to fight al-Qaeda-linked militants.

WASHINGTON — A new study reveals that nearly 33,000 jobs have been impacted due to the Affordable Care Act’s medical device excise tax. The report comes from the Advanced Medical Technology Association following an online survey of member companies last year. “According to the report, the tax has led to employment reductions of approximately 14,000 industry workers and foregone hiring of 19,000 workers,” the study stated. “The total job impact of the tax on industry employment was approximately 33,000.” Stephen J.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A former and possibly future first daughter came to Kansas City on Monday to launch an effort to honor women. Chelsea Clinton spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, sharing her passion for efforts that help boost women and girls. "How far have women come, and how far do we have to go?" she said. She told the audience that those questions are less philosophical than practical. She said she buries herself in the world of the Clinton Foundation to make sure she's doing her part. Another reason she was in Kansas City is to help establish the Starr Women's Hall of Fame,

Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ Caused By
Volcanoes’ ‘Cooling Effect,’ Study Says
Eruptions Slow Global Temperature Rise

Since 1998, the average rate of Earth’s rising global surface temperature has relaxed, much to the chagrin of climate scientists whose climate-model predictions told a different story. Now, researchers say they’ve found the cause of Earth’s global warming “hiatus.” According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, volcanoes are the reason the average rate of warming dropped from .31 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1970 and 1998 to .072 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1998 and 2012. This “muted surface warming” was the result of a series of 17 small volcanic eruptions, beginning in 2000, that spewed

We´ve paid plenty of attention here at KCET to the problems caused for desert tortoises when their habitat is replaced with renewable energy facilities. But now one scientist is saying that big solar facilities in the Mojave could seal the desert tortoise´s fate in a way you might not expect. According to Barry Sinervo, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California Santa Cruz, current solar projects in the California desert intended to slow global warming, including two approved just last week by the Interior Department, could actually make the desert too hot for tortoises to survive past the end of

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

Writing a check on an account with an iffy balance, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told The New York Times that he thinks the Republican establishment is "going to crush [our opponents] everywhere." It took zero-point-zero seconds for that quote to become precisely the sort of rallying point that Republican incumbents would probably rather their opponents not have. The Tea Party-versus-establishment war has rarely been articulated as plainly as in McConnell´s comments. Although it appears that McConnell was probably speaking within the fairly narrow frame of candidates challenging incumbent Republican senators. Last week, McConnell´s second-in-command on the Hill, Texas Sen.

WASHINGTON — As conservative activist groups stirred up trouble for establishment Republican Senate candidates in 2010 and 2012, party leaders in Washington first tried to ignore the insurgents, then tried to reason with them, and ultimately left it to primary voters to settle the matter. But after several of those conservatives — in Nevada, Colorado and Delaware in 2010 and in Indiana and Missouri in 2012 — managed to win their primaries but lose in the general election, party leaders felt stung by what they saw as avoidable defeats. This election season, Republicans led by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky are taking
