October 2012 News Factoids

A national aggregate poll by in mid-September gives Obama 49% and Romney 45.4%

By one count of the first presidential debate on October 3rd, Mitt Romney misled the nation 27 times in 38 minutes of airtime! The Romney campaign said a few weeks ago that "We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers." They weren’t kidding.

The Democrats' 'Romney Tax Plan' website is hilarious!

"The 112th Congress is set to enter the Congressional record books as the least productive body in a generation, passing a mere 173 public laws as of [August 2012]. That was well below the 906 enacted from January 1947 through December 1948 by the body [that] President Harry S. Truman referred to as the 'Do-Nothing' Congress, and far fewer than even a single session of many prior Congresses."

Australia's Great Barrier Reef has lost HALF of its coral over the last thirty years, while coral reefs worldwide have declined by 20 percent. (The greater Australian problem has to do with agricultural runoff.)

Movie due in 2014 “Lego: The Piece Of Resistance” has the funniest plot description in a long time: A regular everyday little Lego figure is mistaken as a MasterBuilder and suddenly becomes part of a group on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing everything together.
