Re: Scott Walker vs PA Liberals

It's Liberals stepping behind G0ldman Sachs Hillary.

While most of us would prefer someone like Elizabeth Warren in the investment banking arena, I'll take Hillary GS Clinton way ahead of any GOP bozos--and it's been years since there [more]

Re: Air Polution Shrinks Brains

I've been saying for years that even if you don't "believe in" global warming--or believe it's caused by human activities, it's worth limiting air pollution for healthy breathing alone.

Re: Mother's Day

Oh, just laugh it off and reschedule ;-)

Apple used to start their annual developer's conference on Mother's Day, so my husband missed several Mother's Days in a row. Alas, no pancakes in bed for me!

Re: The Moral Problem With Estate Taxes

None of the kiddies got a 'windfall'…..

You don't regard a 6-figure inheritance as a windfall? I sure do. I bet the vast majority of Americans do. Only about half of Americans ever receive any inheritance at all.

Re: DEMs Could Nominate a 'Ham Sandwich' for Pre

WikiBunnies will do as they are told.

Every time a pol sez they support cutting Social Security, voucherizing Medicare, or instituting a flat tax, I tell myself to vote for their opponent!

Re: oy, teapublicans!

Re: Oh. My. God.
