Posted on 04/21/14 at 09:26 am in response to With creative ambiguity, Condoleezza Rice defends torture tactics

I believe Christopher Hitchens submitted to it. As did Chicago shock jock "Mancow" Muller.

Both of them declared it torture after their experience, which was done under far more psychologically safer conditions than a terrorist suspect would experience.

I'm not sure what HItchen's position on waterboarding was prior to his experience, but I do know that Muller supported it until he experienced it first hand.

OK,

So these GOPers aresaying they would spend four years in office telling Minnesotans that the economy sucks (or at least, is in imminent danger of collapse), in order to avoid increasing the minimum wage...

Posted on 04/11/14 at 01:41 pm in response to Mike McFadden fences with reporters and ducks specifics

Given that Franken is unabashedly pro-choice, his position on "personhood" is understood.

"Personhood" is only relevant to understanding how radical a candidate's anti-abortion stance is.

Posted on 03/27/14 at 09:31 am in response to Tearful mothers take issue with Gov. Dayton over medical marijuana

Dayton has criticized advocates for not compromising, and says it will be their fault if there is no advancement on the issue.

Where has his criticism and blame of law enforcement been?

Advocates have offered compromise after compromise to law enforcement after Dayton asked the two groups to talk together, and Law enforcement rejected all of them, while making no offers of their own.

Once an employee has earned their compensation, an employer has no more right to tell an employee how to utilize the insurance portion of it anymore than they can tell an employee how they may or may not spend the cash portion. (and let's not leave out the fact that almost all employees also pay a portion of their cash wages to the insurance company as well).

Actually, the contraceptives that Hobby Lobby are objecting too work even earlier in the process, by blocking ovulation. They do not work after ovulation.

There are no abortifacients on the list of ACA mandated contraception coverage.

No amount of repeating that talking point changes the science of their mechanism of action.

Non of the professional leagues have a significantly higher arrest rate than the national population. And a couple actually have rates lower than the national average.

So then Bush II's muscular pre-emption foreign policy was an utter failure as well, since that failed to stop Russia from invading Georgia in 2008, right?

Posted on 02/11/14 at 04:36 pm in response to Rep. Ellison's big idea for cleaning up campaign finance

It's been awhile, but I'm guessing Rudy Boschwitz's donors had to pay a lot more than $1,000 in order to get one of those stickers to put on their mail so his staff would open the envelope.
