80 Bad Years: Conservatives’ Exemplary Record Of Being Wrong About Everything

Head in Hands

As Obamacare surpasses its goal of  7 million sign-ups, with over 8 million as of now,  and including those who have acquired insurance either as the result of Medicaid expansion or other elements of the Affordable Care Act raising the number of Americans previously uninsured or newly insured to between 14.6 and 22.1 million, there’s discussion of how supercalifragilistically wrong Republicans…

Night Of The Living Philistines: Money Making, Envy And You

Night Of The Living Philistines: Money Making, Envy And You

robot businessman

Arthur C. Brooks confides to us in a New York Times Op-Ed piece that he is worried about what he calls, our “national shift toward envy.” Pity the sleepless nights the man has endured on our behalf, coming to grips with this ‘toxic’ plague poisoning the very air we breathe, and praise his sacrifice.

If Vladimir Putin can do for Crimea what George Bush did for Iraq, happy days are here again, you lucky Crimeans you.
