    obsessive wealth accumulation is an acquired mental disorder that is treatable only by wealth redistribution. The best thing there ever was for the mental health of the obscenely rich was the 91% marginal tax rate in the 1950s.

    humanity needs to absorb the concept that no human possesses, and no authority can grant the right to kill another human. Its the only way.

    if only all conservatives could have a terminal disease (other than conservativism) so they could gain the perspective on life that the nearness death brings, the world would be a far better place.

  • Even Former National Security & Bush Administration Officials Think Obama’s Drone Policy Is Too Radical

    what a moronic thing to say. When it comes to republican comments on obama, you could never devine a serious comment from their obama hatred. I’m no fan of obama, and think his drone policies are crimes, but its plain stupid to ask or quote any republican on any topic about what they think about an obama policy.

    ‘Its about the mentally ill’ is a fine argument to accept because the logical result is that every gun owner – yes, gun owner, as well as gun purchasers need to be thoroughly tested/assessed/vetted for mental stability, which is the immediate goal. That the very desire to own a gun raises the questions of that [...]

    If Christie is to be judged on sober stewardship of the New Jersey pension system, the verdict won’t be favorable.

    pretty sure that once pig-christie is in jail he’ll mostly be judged on his corrosive personality and failure to even remotely resemble a decent human being.

    no question organized religion manipulates frightened, ignorant people playing on guilt and fear of retribution, mostly to benefit the leaders; organized religions are in essence all cults. OTOH, there is a infinite body of unknown knowledge beyond what humans currently “understand” through science – there always will be. For everything science determines we now know [...]

    …of course its a bit stupid to say two economies of equal dollar value, but one has to serve 4 times the people are of equal size. Seems like the one serving 1.5 billion people is only a quarter the size (per capita) as the other one serving 300 million people.

    O

    r is the real goal for America to become more like China by suspending democracy and letting special interests rule? We already have the oligarchy.

    I’d republicans (including the SCOTUS) have us well on the way to eliminating democracy with their voter suppression laws and tactics.

  • the confederacy was and is an abomination. “never again” month would be way more appropriate. I’m thinking its time to rethink that no-secession business. With 20/20 hindsight, keeping the south seems to have been a mistake: emancipation: yes; secession: good riddance. Finding a home to send all the vile, insane republican/conservative goons has merit.

  • pluege commented on the blog post Regular People Don’t Pay Any Attention to the CBO

    2014-02-11 14:19:09View | Delete

    the CBO is not important in the way presented here, as if average people are hanging on its every word. It is exceptionally important in validating and lending credence to statements politicians make. This is a perfect example and why the CBO (and other credible sources) is so important and why democrats need to pushback hard on the lying spin put out by republicans.

    A republican saying that the ACA will cost jobs has no credence to any sentient human being as said human is 99% sure the republican statement is an outright lie or is an exceptional exaggeration taken out of context – it is what republicans do. But that very same lying dirtbag republican saying that the CBO says ACA will cost jobs will suddenly be listened to or at least not dismissed out of hand.

    The CBO (and any other credible source of information) makes a HUGE difference.
