Who's next? Ford and Chevy?

Isn't this comparable to suing Ford and Chevy for selling a car that can go 120 MPH? There cannot be one person in the country that doesn't know that smoking can kill you.

Zipcar question.

Since Zipcar users are short term users with no one really responsible between rentals, what happens if you get busted with a couple of kilos of coke in the wheel well?

Who would you take a bullet for?

For me, not very many people. Of course if I could make an anti gun, pro diversity (gay for all you dense people) statement by taking a bullet?................ Nope, that's not on my list. Sorry.

OK, I admit it. I watched the World Cup finals today from start to finish. (130 minutes)

Re: Poll: Numerate Economists

I'm not sure I understand the poll but let me point you in the direction of P. Krugman. The man is a brilliant Nobel Award winning economist who graces many newspapers with his thoughts, his insight, and his wit.

Of course I'm sure that the armed, angry folks turning away the children at the border will claim to be good Christians...

Re: Lois Lerner strikes again!

Grits, is this a standard response to anything negative said about the Dems?

Confusing stat.
