Re: So let's review

GoofyHoofy: Could we move on, now that the damage has been done?

Good idea. Now we can devote all of our time to Planned Parenthood selling babies to science labs for their experiments...at a profit!

Re: Insulation

When my wife and I built our vacation/retirement home in Maine we were very lucky to get a contractor who really knew the zone and possible issues. He had done a lot of building in the area but, maybe even better, he often did small remodel and [more]

Re: Trump Doubles Down On Crazy

Milligram46: So awesome to see Trump surging in the polls, I hope he wins the nomination and picks Cruz as his running mate.

Re: ScaliaCare -- Shameful Opinion shows GOP's F

In cases like this I'd like to see SCOTUS being able to kick this back to Congress as a "do over", with a simple vote to clarify the intent of the law. I'm sure there are very good reasons they don't do this but it seems that would solve [more]
