Re: This should make the right-wing happy

Nothing actually makes right-wingers 'happy'. You can't be happy when you are afraid of, well, everything. Terrorists, abortion doctors, aliens, muslims, God, angels, devils, chinese imports, public schools, democrats...

Re: Book Review: "7 Bad Ideas"

Re: Proof that Obama Does Not Read My Posts

Fwiw, I doubt you have the courage to respond.

They knew exactly what would happen, they just didn't care.

Re: Book Review: "7 Bad Ideas"

I think there are plenty of good reasons not to believe the Laffer Curve has any legitimate relationship to reality.

The Laffer curve suggests that, as taxes increase from low levels, tax revenue collected by the government also increases. [more]

Re: Islamic Scholars Refute ISIS

That would seem to be a far cry from beheading infidels and subjugating women.
