If a corporation is a person, is a person a corporation?

A family incorporates: Smith Family, Inc. All its expenses to earn income are deductible: transportation to & from work, meals at work, clothing worn for work, etc. Investments in future income growth, college education for the kids, is deductible. You can make political contributions without limit, anonymously, and for your "corporate" interest.

When you get real good, you get to pay as much in taxes as GE.

Yes She Can...

Elizabeth Warrren for president! We need to encourage this brave lady to get In the primary, against Obummer. All she needs is a hat, the ring couldn't be bigger.

The Snitch In The Hard Drive?

I'm having a dispatch exchange with the makers of my one terrabyte external hard drive because the drive sent an alert signal to the software partners after I tried to defrag it in responce to an information problem.

My new computer hardware never asked me if I wanted to send out this alert - it just did so. The software partners have a $60 dollar solution and a trialware option to fix this problem. While the tactical implications indicate computer hardware that can fix itself. strategically, this sends a shiver down my spine.

Hacking the republican ticket

If you intend to have Scooby Doo on the republican ticket, then Peppy LePew should be his running mate: The LePew-Doo ticket.

Republican calls for suspension of Democracy

Oh wait, I meant Democrat.

"The Monster that Ate My Vote!" A classic "What Now Cartoon!"

I'm so glad that Thom has devoted so much time to this topic today, these voting machines should all be scrapped and we should go back to good old fashioned paper ballots!

It's interesting that Democrats have only won enough seats in congress to look like their in charge, but not enough to pass anything!

It appears Obama doesnt care

Gosh. After the spinach scare, the American people wanted Obama do something about food safety, but he wasn’t really interested in that, but more like his plans were to get re-elected.

Drama Punishment By Bullet, How Lethiferous?

I just discoverd Canadian drama television; not just their better known exports like Flashpoint (CBS) and Rookie Blue (ABC), but two interesting dramas originating from

The first series of note is King, a police drama lead by a strong and complicated woman seargent of detectives who is put in charge of Toronto's major crimes unit. Still in its first season, King depicts a character that would interest many people.

"Junk Food" not actually cheaper

THE “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how liberals explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli ...” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”

California nurse's comments about strike and lockout

Thom or whomever:

I say the following as a former union steward and generally a supporter of worker's and union rights. However, I was somewhat appalled by a recent exchange between Thom and a guest on the radio show two days ago. She was a nurse and head of a Californian nurse's organization that had participated in a one day strike of her hospital and several other hospitals in the Bay Area. The nurse and Thom discussed the fact that after a one-day walk out by several thousand nurses from these hospitals that, the next day, the hospitals locked them out.

cannot even post to book face with a thumbs up. so what's up. they own this web site too?

How to fix the country and get people working (and there's nothing the Republicans can say about it).

Texas and other states are suffering from a deadly drought. I propose a WPA-like program where desalinising plants can be built in the gulf and a series of pipelines be built to bring the water up to the affected states. It will require our steel mills to hire to produce the pipelines.. Construction contractors will have to hire to build structures and even the infrastructure. The auto industry will have an accelerated demand for its products. Farmers will have arable fields and will be able to supply the world again. Towns will spring u

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
