Stinky's "Positive Challenge"
Okay, here's a new kind of thread from me, a known malcontent. How about we all try to post political stories that are positive. This can be a favored candidate getting a leg up on her tea party opponent. It can be the passage of some legislation at the local or state level that does some good for the Little Guy contingent. Maybe a story from some far flung Outpost Of The Empire wherein we actually do something nice and refuse to take money or treasure for having done it.

And dear fellow malcontents: PLEASE refrain from ripping into someone who posts as a positive something you think is not. Instead of ripping that poster, post, instead, another positive.

Let's see if we can get this up to a hundred positive posts.







(This post is serious, but was ghostwritten by Stinky's opposite twin, Sunshine The Clown.)

13. How about this?
A "known malcontent" on a popular political discussion forum today was co-opted by his uplifting alter-ego and posted a thread that was intended to uplift the spirits of all and help bring together a very fractured and argumentative community.

Hey, it made MY day a little brigher, anyway!

Thanks for the thread, Stink---- er, Sunshine! :hi:

14. "New Mine and Workplace Safety Legislation on Horizon"
From AFL-CIO blog, by Mike Hall:

"Stronger enforcement tools, tougher penalties and broader workers rights are at the center of soon-to-be introduced workplace safety legislation.

The bills crafters say they were spurred by the deadly Massey Energy Upper Big Branch explosion that killed 29 coal miners; the Tesoro refinery blast that claimed the lives of seven Washington State workers; the BP oil rig blast that killed 11, the Connecticut Kleen Energy Systems explosion where six workers died and other recent workplace disasters.

The outline of the proposed job safety bill focuses on mine safety, but also includes provisions to strengthen worker safety protections in all workplaces. House and Senate leaders, including Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), announced the new job safety package this morning."
