Stebbins confirms the feeling I get from the Paulbots. It's like she's been given marching orders to parrot the nihilist libertarian talking points. Whilst I agree with much of their foreign policy, their domestic and economic policy frightens me. Paul's fan base is devoted but small and you can see why. They're uncompromising extremists.
And is "liberty" the next conservative buzzword? Will they pollute and corrupt it the way they've done with "freedom?"
I run stop signs on my bike because (a) it's safe when done right and (b) it's easier than stopping. There is a big energy cost to accelerating from a standstill, just as in a car. Roundabouts save fuel because people aren't idling and then flooring it.
You forgot to mention another very serious cause of not breastfeeding: low milk production. My wife was unable to produce enough milk for our newborn daughter. So we turned to a medication that increases production; that sort of worked. Production increased, but it was still not enough. So we augmented this with formula.

Is that the biggest cop-out or what? Couldn't Tom Bakk author and sponsor his own same-sex marriage bill?
I was extremely disappointed when I learned that the DFL elected for their majority leader the conservative Tom Bakk. The Twin Cities dominates the state's population, yet that is not the case at the legislature. A more liberal Democrat from the Twin Cities should have been elected majority leader.
You neglected the fact that houses cost more than apartments. I dump a fantastic amount of money improving and maintaining my house, let alone the increased costs like utilities. The MID helps offset some of these costs. (Also, isn't there a property tax refund for renters making under a certain amount? I got it a couple times when I was in college.)
And being a middle class family that depends on MID and other deductions, you're damn right that I would protest its elimination. If...
You demonstrate a clear lack of understanding. Research money is targeted for one thing: research. It CANNOT be used to offset tuition costs. How grant money is to be used is spelled out explicitly in the contracts. The University would be illegally breaking those contracts if they moved grant money to the general fund.
Whether or not Kaler is right, whether or not the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post were right, I think you can definitely say one thing about this whole...
