Spirited dialog with my conservative nephew

I've been having a good discussion with my nephew about NPR, taxes, cutbacks, etc. (The usual stuff)

He threw this one at me today: "The top 1% of income earners pay 37% of the total federal income tax and the top 5% pay 57%, so I would say the rich pay their fair share. The bottom 50% pay only 3%, so they shouldn't really be complaining."

A Rhapsody for CNN

I heard the Council speak their peace

As men streamed down the bloody streets

While bullets sprayed them from the roofs.

As men in ties stood solemnly aloof

Defending the rights of men

While death marched loud on CNN,

On gunny sacks in makeshift shacks

Children’s sadly shattered bodies

RTE News. Buisness section. Arrestes in the banking fruad

UK tycoons arrested in Iceland bank probe.

Somebody help Representative F. James Sensenbrenner (R - WI) clean out his desk...get him a box... because it is just a matter of time before he is GONE! NOT re-elected! Finished!

Let Obama explain why he isn't in Wisconsin

Stop making excuses for him, let him explain or please Mr. President leave office at the end of your term

John Stewart nails it

Either life begins at conception or it doesn't. You can't have this one two ways.

This is brilliant:

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
