Re: Crude at $40 per barrel

I don't think I ever predicted oil being over $150--not even in 2008. If I clicked on the poll, I probably would have guessed $70-$100.

I definitely didn't think we'd see it under $40.

Re: The JEB Bush/Lehman Connection

In 2007, just as he left office, Bush secured a job as a Lehman consultant for $1.3 million a year.

This is the private sector/business experience which everyone says is so important for a President to have these days.

Re: What? Me worry?

Just remember, IS members who are in the U.S. legally have the right to purchase any kind of firearm they want and we should oppose any kind of background checks. The NRA tells us so.

Re: Macy's decides not to hire racists

One interesting thing in this story is that George Pataki called Trump out on the racism (undoubtedly trying to get some recognition), and asked the other candidates to also do so.

So far, crickets...
