Some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:

Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 19% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 40% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –21.

Overall, 45% of voters at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance while 54% at least somewhat disapprove. The president earns approval from 80% of Democrats while 91% of Republican voters disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 44% approve and 55% disapprove.

Among American adults, 41% say their views are closer to the Tea Party than Occupy Wall Street while 34% are closer to OWS.

In case you didn't know, our federal government will be turning off all television and radio communications simultaneously on the afternoon of 11/9 for the first time in American history. It will occur at 2:00pm (EST). This shut down is a test for the national Emergency Alert System. Or is it? Remember Egypt's uprising when the government blacked out the internet because the protestors were so well organized and were growing too powerful through the use of sites like facebook? Perhaps this test is filled with innocent, good intentions but we will no longer be curious whether our government has the power to completely cut off communication and news. Pretty scary. Especially when our president is a leader who openly entertains the idea of overriding Congress when he cannot get his way. If this country keeps crumbling in division, potential actions like these become desperate measures for desperate times---and America is getting desperate.

818.4 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day56.
