Money Hasn't Influenced this Election

With the craziness of this election I think there has been a fundamental point that has been over looked. It's always been claimed that money wins elections. This election has been a perfect example that money doesn't necessarily win elections. The Freakonomic guys did a paper back in 2012 showing t...

Re: Trump says he'll look at replacing TSA workers with veterans

Let's be honest it was all about the "hibby jobbies" and had very little to do with Veterans.

Re: Panera Cares

Went by the Panera Cares here in Portland on Friday to discover that it had closed. I tried looking for information about it's closing, but didn't find anything. Only found a couple articles about a Panera Cares closing in Chicago last year. I'm sort of surprised that this Panera Care closed. There ...

Come on Porque, do you have any idea how many food poisoning outbreaks occur in this country? When I worked at the Minnesota Department of Health we used to get a morning email reports about food poisoning cases throughout the state. It was usually a daily occurrence. CDC estimates that each year ro...

Panera Cares

We had quite a lengthy discussion about the non-profit Paneras where it's pay as you choose and they only accept donations. Well I actually went to one here in Portland yesterday. There happens to be one near one of the office buildings I work at. I initially thought it was just a Panera. Of course ...

Yep. "A lot of people" think the 14th Amendment to the Constitution doesn't apply to "anchor babies". We call those people "morons". There's another term you can use to describe "anchor babies," and that's "natural born American citizens". :-bd Ther...

I also find Trumps insistence on building a wall ironic, considering Reagan's most famous quote was "Tear Down this Wall!"

Re: Is el Donaldo a 21st century Nathan Hale?

How can someone be that "angry"? It takes a lot of effort to work yourself over so many issues especially when many of them aren't issues as portrayed. That type of person deserves Trump. I love how the letter starts out portraying that she is rational, and yet follows it with irrational r...

Here is the full list of CURRENT Obamacare taxes - it's important to keep in mind that the full law is NOT in effect yet. http://obamacarefacts.com/obamacare-taxes/ You stated you "have had to pay a higher tax rate" , so which of these taxes are you directly paying? Anyone who thinks thes...

Re: She Fertile...

I've never understood abstinence only education. Even if you abstain until marriage, you will still need sexual education for when you become sexual active once married. The only situation where abstinence only education makes sense is someone who doesn't plan to ever have sex, and I think there are...

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare Subsidies

we still get insurance through my husband's employer. The rates went up, co-pays went up and we had to pay the increased tax rate. Losers.

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare Subsidies

"Generally written" laws would not have over 380,000 words. I wouldn't call this a "general law" either. It depends on the law, but there are many laws that are as long if not longer. I doubt you actually know how long the average law is, I know I didn't and had to look it up. T...

Re: Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare Subsidies

There's something that bugs me about the recent SCOTUS decision about the Obamacare subsidies. Obamacare was poorly written. Regardless of the intent, the fact that this case even happened proves that the law was poorly written. I highly doubt this will be the last time SCOTUS will be involved in t...

Re: "Interesting stuff happens in the fourth quarter."

Donald Trump. Actually, he has nothing to do with Obama unless he goes birther again, but he's so much fun and such a YOOOOGE lick knob, as Wonkette calls him. He's doing the hard work of alienating every Hispanic in the country against the Republican Party, with help from Fox Noise. You go, lick k...
