GOP theft

economy-bush-taxcuts cost 48k per taxpayer or per taxpayer household. 6.6 trillion was stolen, 4 trillion spent on mic and halliburton war profiteering, but paid for a lot of congressmen, lobbyists, and judicial appointments. America is the #1 banana republic in the world, don't it make you proud?

Class action potential?

/dollar-shave-club-upscale-9-moisturizer anti-aging for men promises 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Men that are aging might only be 95% satisfied or even less. A settlement ought to include an option to verify it's anti-aging qualities by a digital photo that could be kept in a closet to compare the degrees of gray experienced vs digital records offered to be kept in the cloud by Dorian Inc. to protect from hackers and unsavoury photo shoppers.

OMG... I'm A Moderate? What Would A Moderate's Manifesto Look Like?

I'm not sure what Thom means by the radical middle... but what would a radical moderate manifesto look like?

Gay U.S. Youths Kidnapped, Tormented and Tortured -- by Christian Evangelicals

This is just one example of the sickness and perversion that has manifested itself in the Christain Evangelical community because a segment of our society that has historically been kept supressed by them has dared to challenge their moral authority.

The Repub governor strategy of not expanding Medicaid and starting state exchanges may have a big payoff.

HOBBY LOBBY is the PERFECT Democratic Wedge Issue in 2014 and 2016

Everyone HATES the HOBBY LOBBY decision.

Women, regardless of the political party, HATE it for the effect that i has on them. Men who have Moms, or wives, or a daughters HATE it because of the effect that it has on the women that they love. LGBTQ people HATE it because of the effect that it will have on them, if the Court extends the logic of the case to the flood of new cases claiming that HOBBY LOBBY gives them the right to discriminate against gays because of a "sincerely held legal belief."

Here's one for Zenzoe and others to argue about. This shows the darkside of surrogacy. Are you going to end up with a surrogate baby being an orphan?

SCOTUS Gets Wierder Still

Apparently the Supreme Court has now gone so far as to give credence to the argument that merely requiring that a nonprofit certify that it has a religious objection to providing birth control through a health insurance plan may be a violation of its religious freedom for the fact that the certification itself makes it complicit in having someone else provide birth control to employees. Huh? Believe it or not the Court enjoined HHS from requiring that nonprofit religious organization fill out one of their (HHS) forms in order to claim

A Rising Tide Only Lifts All Boats When Everyone Has a Boat.

President John F. Kennedy once said about economic development that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Kennedy was, of course, right, but he missed something really, really important: A rising tide lifts only lifts all boats when everyone has a boat.
