I have a private  Facebook page and a Networked Blogs listing; And  privacy concerns - limited admittedly, since I blog my surfing anyway. 
 I have a Google+ button already...for the blog itself. Since my photo files are sometimes copyrighted and for personal use only Picasa access isn't enabled either.

Excerpt: "You can argue that Ben Bernanke has done a better job than anyone else who might have held his position. Yet the fact is, he has not done remotely enough. The Fed, under its eminent chairman, was supposed to be an important part of the solution to mass unemployment. That isn't happening."

‎"Why does an ignorant American public think it knows more than experts? Why do Americans believe a government that told them the intentional lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction despite the fact that the weapons inspectors reported to President Bush that Hussein had no such weapons?

QUOTE OF THE DAY From Robert S. Becker: "Thank you, BP, not just for countless beach tar balls but carcinogenic toxins invading our largest organ, the skin. No problem, says BP spokesman Craig Savage (savage, indeed) bragging $14 billion was spent on cleanup, "the beaches are open, the tourists are back and commercial fishing is rebounding." Declaring beaches safe, let alone seafood clean, is like saying, weeks after A-bombs hit Japan, "well, the air has cleared, folks are returning, and look at all those corpses and debris getting hauled away." Even if 80% of the five million barrels were neutralized, that still leaves one million barrels slick and at large, with time and opportunity on their side. "
