Here We Go ...

This is a little scary. I am going to move the blog from FTP publishing to a dedicated domain. If this works, from now on you will find the blog at instead of

Cross your fingers. Here we go.

[Update: 9 PM. That was a little scary. I needed to associate my CNAME with a google domain, and it took four hours for it to propagate through DNS. I have redirected the links from the web's main page to this blog, and those seem to work.

There are no "old" comments. This FAQ document says:
Q. My comments are missing after migration.

A. There may be a slight delay of up to a couple hours as the comments are replicated across our storage layers; no data is lost and all comments will display within a couple hours.

I do hope they're right. So far, so good...]

[Update Day Two noon: still no comments. Old comments are still online at the old URL, for a few days at least. I am still hopeful that Blogger will connect them to this domain, but it has been a lot more than "a couple hours."]

Nice new location, Jim. I followed the link right here and replaced my bookmark with the new location.

Now, let's see if this comment posts.

This appears to be an open thread with Anone still trying to convince us the globe is cooling while NOAA reports NOAA: Global Temps Push Last Month to Hottest March on Record

It looks like the GOP is continuing to march in lockstep against the wishes of the majority of Americans who want Wall Street reform to prevent another collapse caused by the weakening of post-depression regulations. Americans want Wall Street to be regulated like it was after the depression, which prevented economic woes until Reagan loosened banking and Wall Street regulations, which led to Black Monday and the Savings and Loan crisis and the rest.

Wall Street Poll: Two-thirds of Americans want stricter regulations in financial reform

"Poll shows about two-thirds of Americans support stricter regulations on the way banks and other financial institutions conduct their business.
According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll that was released Monday morning, majorities also back two main components of legislation congressional Democrats plan to bring to a vote in the Senate this week: greater federal oversight of consumer loans and a company-paid fund that would cover the costs of dismantling failed firms that put the broader economy at risk.

...compared with congressional Republicans, Obama has a clear advantage. A slim majority - 52 percent - of all Americans says they trust Obama over the GOP on the issue, while 35 percent favor the Republicans in Congress. Independents prefer Obama 47 to 35 percent, with 16 percent trusting neither side on the issue."

Americans want reform but the GOP can only say "No! Protect the status quo!"

GOP slams brakes on Wall Street debate

"Senate Republicans yesterday stalled efforts to overhaul Wall Street, but Democrats, saying they were convinced Americans want a regulatory crackdown, insisted they would ultimately prevail.

With bipartisan talks continuing on the measure, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said GOP lawmakers were "weaker" after they prevented the start of debate on President Obama's reform bill.

"They are stopping this," Boxer said. "People understand that taxpayers are on the hook for billions of dollars, and they understand we have to fix this. The polls are overwhelming."

Obama said he was "deeply disappointed" that Senate Republicans blocked debate on the bill, sponsored by Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), saying it appeared to be part of a misguided strategy to prevent Wall Street from being held accountable.

...What's worse for Republicans, Americans appear to reject their argument that Obama is overreaching with intrusive government regulation of businesses.

About 59 percent supported "increased federal oversight" of the way banks and other financial firms operate, according to the ABC News/Washington Post poll."
