ocatbusmycatbus: bthny: I mean, if you’re going to talk about politics on the internet it might help to have a basic understanding of how politics work. Like, H.R. 3 - the H.R. stands for “House Resolution,” which means that it came from the House of Representatives and still has to pass the Senate before the President can sign it into law, which it won’t and which he wouldn’t; also, there is...
I once quoted Warren Buffett as if he was a hero...
He could be paying more taxes right now. Nobody is stopping him. Praise RESCINDED. That goes for you too, Zuckerberg. BTW, someone can correct me on this, but isn’t it entirely possible that Buffett and Zuck still pay the same tax rate if the Dems raise the income tax rates? That is, if most of their income is based on capital gains, which was lowered by both Clinton and Bush II. To...
When liberals warn of rapacious hunters, loggers, and financiers, they have a...– John Tester plays the awkward game of being in a conservative-leaning state the way that Scott Brown has to play in liberal Massachusetts.

Goff: When we look at the ‘birther’ movement and particularly Donald Trump’s foray into this, I’m much more concerned about the consequences of this dialogue than whether or not Donald Trump or any other individual is a racist. When we talk about people being a racist, we’ve already lost the argument… Someone only needs to say ‘I’m not [racist]. I never intended that.’ And because people are...

I had something else in mind to write about, but this is an interesting look on how something that started out as goofy as the 9/11 truther movement snowballed into something much bigger. In short: the blame gets cast across the political spectrum, and Weigel includes himself. Starts out with the seedy underbelly of chain e-mails and conspiracy sites, and extends outward as obscure Republican...
