Definition of 'job'
I was challenged about the job of the president being a "community organizer" and that definitely was what he worked at after getting his law degree and going to work. But in searching, nobody seems to come up with anything else. In my wife's 1931 Websters dictionary, it says, Job: A piece of work, an employment occupation, duty, task.

Doing the math on Murkowski contributions
After hearing the Murkowski camp complaining about Joe Miller receiving money from outside Tea Party supporters, I decided to look into where Lisa gets her money. I found several that list all the incumbents and downloaded the individual contributions from her top twenty sources. If you give more than $250, you are required to divulge your employer, and all contributions from that employer are counted toward that employer's total.

CIRI shareholder funds shouldn't go to campaigns

Hey! What's Up?
"It Is What It Is," and "What It Is" is getting worse! America is getting sicker by the minute. We have been taking the wrong medicine. President Obama and his loyal band of followers have been distributing socialism pills all across America. His prescription for change and transformation in America is bad medicine. He can't be stopped until November 2012, however, on November 2, we can elect Joe Miller as our U.S. Senator. He and the other conservatives can put a stop to the spread of this disease and set the stage for real change in 2012.

Needed virtue: Persily: state should be patient on big gas pipeline
The Lower 48 is awash in cheap natural gas, true enough. But Alaskans shouldn't get discouraged about prospects for a large-diameter gas pipeline, to the point that they write a check from the state treasury for a smaller pipeline from the North Slope to Southcentral Alaska.
