Blame Bites (10/19/2012)

As you can probably tell, I haven’t been regular with blog posts. Since time prevents me from writing full posts, I decided to experiment with something new.

This is the first in a semi-daily series I’d like to call Blame Bites. Basically, they’re links to articles I wish to share but don’t feel like writing full posts about. Think of them like the Daily Links from Red State or Skepchick Quickies.

This is my first attempt, so tell me what you think in the comments below.

Anyway, here’s the first round:

Clinton: Romney right, economy's not fixed | Weekly Standard

"Governor Romney's argument is, we're not fixed, so fire him and put me in. It is true we're not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said in the debate, I had so much hope four years ago and I don't now, I thought he was going to cry. Because he knows that it's not fixed." (At least one Democrat is honest about Obama’s economic “recovery.”)

Meet the 5 Biggest Donors to the Obama & Romney Campaigns | The Blaze

A must-read article on the puppeteers pulling the strings of the two presidential candidates and their campaigns. You know the old saying: follow the money.

Countries Where You Don't Need 'Health Insurance' | Lew Rockwell

And the medical care is cheap and high-quality, says Simon Black: “Everywhere else, insurance isn’t necessary; the price of healthcare in most places is reasonable enough to pay cash. Perhaps nowhere is this more true than in Thailand… home to one of the most advanced, highest quality, and cheapest private healthcare systems on the planet.” (So countries with successful privatized healthcare systems do exist! And they outperform our own healthcare system! And those of socialist countries!)

Obama’s Support Among Young Voters Craters | Red State

The number of young people who plan on voting has significantly dropped since the last election. And while Obama may have the most support from young voters, very few of his young supporters plan on voting in this election, as opposed to young voters who support Romney. (Well, I have them both beat, as I'm a young voter who's voting for neither of them. Take that, two-party establishment!)

Another Snack Attack! Schools Move to Ban ‘Flamin’ Hot Cheetos’ | The Blaze

First the nanny state eliminates junk food from school lunches, now it prohibits students from bringing junk food to school? And specific junk food?! Good grief!
