BART bit off more than they can chew by blocking cell use to try to thwart legitimate protest. ‘Anonymous’ to continue till BART apologizes.

@Margoandhow Powerful incentives 4 Super Congress 2 reach agreement. If can’t cut $1.2 tril, or either House rejects, severe cuts trigger automatically.

How’s this for a TRIGGER IDEA:? If there’s no long-term deficit reform, all current members of Congress barred from running again.

@RBReich S&P has been under investigation for 3 yrs since 08′ meltdown, it’s time to pull the Trigger.

looking out window, Financial District is ensconced in fog. It’s also disgustingly muggy. Might have to pull trigger on Central A/C.
