Re: How income inequality benefits everybody

Based on available evidence, it's far more likely that government coercion of the economy is the cause of both the poverty and higher inequality

Re: Indiana moving towards Jim Crow

To use your example above, no one has ever successfully (or unsuccessfully to my knowledge) claimed that the federal RFRA would allow them to violate the Civil Rights Act by refusing to serve blacks at a restaurant.

Re: Deadbolt broken in locked position

I would guess the door is warped so badly that it has torqued against the deadbolt, which is really the only thing holding that side of the door in place.

Re: The NCAA, Indy, and "Religious Freedom"

Pence and Company must've lost the memos about the GOP's so-called autopsy and its conclusion about more "inclusivity." Count my home state as included within the others with similar legislation.

Re: How income inequality benefits everybody

If that were the case, more millionaires and billionaires would have gotten that way by inheriting the money. That's not true. Most generated their wealth themselves.

I'm not sure that's true. If you look at the list of richest [more]

Re: Teaching Evolution in Kentucky

Re: German Airbus A320 crashes in French Alps

Odd how a device (armoured door) intended to add safety to the commercial flying business can be used as a weapon isn't it. I've always suspected that could be the case from the day the idea was first mentioned.

Re: plane crash

By your argument FAUX NOISE is great because it attracts gobs of viewers, which it does. That it misinforms them apparently doesn't matter. Right? After all, they're winning the ratings war. That's what counts.

Re: Dividend Stocks vs Bonds

I would not buy dividend producing stocks as a replacement for bonds. The problem is that income producing stocks will also go down in a bear market (so no help with volatility) and could potentially suspend dividends at the very time when you [more]
