Re: Krugman Nails It (Again)


I personally thank God (and the Democrats) for the ACA, despite the outrageous premiums and deductibles. However, in the long-term, it just won't work - and needs to be replaced with single-payer.

Re: Parenthood isn't the only way to be an adult

I find this statement annoying. Those of us who didn't have kids didn't necessarily "give up on the future." A lot of us have pretty good reasons for not having kids, for others it just didn't happen.

And on the flip side, a [more]

Obama's comments were unecessary and incendiary, and contrary to standard practice of not commenting during an open investigation. Of course, this was not the first time Obama went off script and commented during an open investigation. Who could [more]

Re: Run, Biden, Run!

Female or male, if the candidate is qualified, progressive, etc., I'll vote for her or him. IMO, Clinton isn't that candidate
