Posted on 07/23/14 at 04:20 pm in response to Is the Tea Party changing its tune on Mike McFadden?

is whether it will take Google over or under 5 seconds to disprove his assertion. In this case it was easily "under".

Go to the Tea Party in Wikipedia (their citations hold up). Virtually every story on the etymology of the Party refers to the 2008 meltdown.

That's what ya gotta love about Swifty, the facts never get in the way of his ideology.

Using phrases like "burned up credibility", "not taken seriously" and "public evisceration", then going on to cite Forbes. Did Forbes comment on Krugman before or after their hard-hitting piece on the "10 Best Places in America To Buy Ice Cream"?

...by buying Fox News time, isn't Honour purchasing ad time advertising to people he already has in his pocket?

Posted on 07/17/14 at 09:32 am in response to Dismissing the cost of doing business in Minnesota will be at our peril

so we didn't waste a tree on this nonsense. As Rolf noted, there are zero specifics, which tells me there's really not a "problem", just the same whining that's gone on for years. Maybe Ms. Kadoun can answer this question....if employers value "a strong work force" and "educational attainment", does she realize that's paid for by taxes, not a magic wand?

then get back to me.

should reside and receive treatment in the homes of the court appointed experts and their families. Then we'll see how "outrageous" this is.

Posted on 07/14/14 at 09:08 am in response to Walk away, Scruff Face: An open letter to Jesse Ventura

First, you write at length about how much the SEALS mean to Jesse. If that's accurate, then how can he walk away from a claim that he wishes them dead? Sorry, there are some things worth standing up for. And it would be just as easy for Mrs. Kyle to acknowledge that fact. While his death was tragic for his wife, it doesn't change the fact that her husband was also a blowhard and maybe a liar.

Look, I thought Jesse completely blew his opportunity as Guv and I think he's been a...

I'm more worried that corporations will be given the right to marry. What a perfect way to avoid the usual anti-trust kerfuffle.

Posted on 07/10/14 at 10:57 am in response to If Mike McFadden and Al Franken could ask each other one question ...

1. Franken spoke about the underlying rationale for the proposal and its environmental benefits, but I don't think Franken ever really addressed the "job loss" issue.

2. McFadden's proving he's not a "outsider" but just another tool of the GOP Party. Why is finding a solution thru a tax increase "playing politics", while reducing spending is "reaching across the aisle". So DEms can just flip-flop the wording and we're still left with Gridlock. That's McFadden's idea of making a...

1. I would note that often times the public doesn't differentiate between corporations and its CEO's when it comes to politics.

2. I can't wait until corporations are given 2nd amendment rights. Then maybe Hobbytown can take over Hobby Lobby thru an armed invasion.
