The Cheat Sheet, October 31: Politico Confirms Cain Is a Contender

Here’s the Herman Cain news everyone is talking about today.

Funny how quick the media is to jump on the Cain allegations, yet were remarkably restrained on covering the more serious allegations surrounding John Edwards. Wonder what would account for that?

Trick or treat?

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) – Thousands of schoolchildren around the Northeast had one of the earliest snow days in memory Monday after a storm dumped as much as 30 inches of wet, heavy snow that snapped trees and power lines, caused widespread power failures and threatened to disrupt Halloween trick-or-treating.

John at Verum Serum blog spent a day at Occupy LA so you don’t have to.

Suprise! A European Marxist college professor turned up at #OccupyWallSt over the weekend. He predicted violence against the “1%” in the future.

#OccupyOakland is calling for a city-wide general strike on November 2. We’ll see how much public support they really have.

Our own rap sheet of OWS offenses has now topped 100.

Don’t look for a big march on the White House to be one of them.

An Iowa Credit Union is revising its health care policy.

It also gave workers a mandate – quit smoking, curb obesity, or you’ll be paying higher healthcare costs in 2013. It doesn’t yet know by how much, but one thing’s for certain – the unhealthy will pay more. The credit union, which has more than 500 employees, is not alone.

Finally, the United Nations expects the world’s population to reach 7 billion today. Powerline reminds us that before there was climate change, it was the POPULATION BOMB that would destroy us:

Connelly recalls computer projections and economic models that offered precise and “scientifically grounded” projections of future global ruin from population growth, all of which were quickly falsified. The mass famines and food riots that were predicted never occurred; fertility rates began to fall everywhere, even in nations that lacked “family planning” programs.

There will come a time when all the climate change hysteria will seem equally silly.
