Former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver launched his new show "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" on HBO last night. In this segment, he covers a recent Supreme Court case involving one of the plaintiffs citing the 1st amendment as protection for their false advertising, and other insane claims made for products. Other segments featured the United States media outlets largely ignoring one of the largest elections the world has seen thus far (in India); and an interview with former NSA director Keith Alexander. The entire program is viewable on Youtube.

Now that the media is done freaking out about the missing jetliner, how about going on a search for America's vanishing middle class? Now I say this because the number of Americans who identify as middle class has never been lower. And if you don't believe me, just go shopping. The stores like Sears and Penney's that always catered to the middle market are dying. But you know who's doing great? Tiffany's and Gucci and Cartier for the Marie Antoinette crowd. And the dollar store for people who don't see a problem with Halloween candy in June. 50 years ago, America's biggest employer was General Motors, where workers made the modern equivalent of $50 dollars an hour. Today, America's biggest employer is Walmart, where the average wage is $8 dollars an hour. Which means you can share a room in a transient hotel with a drifter who cuts his toenails with a machete.

Why did Hostess Bakery go out of business?
Why did Hostess Bakery go out of business?
Because people are eating less snack foods and more of healthy alternatives like fruit.

General Petraeus enjoying Thanksgiving Dinner with the Troops.

The fact that pumpkin pie is an aphrodisiac may offer an explanation for General Petraeus' behavior. As a Commanding General I bet he ate quite a few Thanksgiving dinners with the troops.

This is a "Happy Halloweenie"!
Am I being too cynical?
The electorate is pretty evenly divided.
What happens if Obama wins but the Republicans still control the House?
What happens if Romney wins but the Democrats still control the Senate?
