Any port in a storm

September 16, 2017

...to be fair, Romney got it from the Heritage Foundation.


Look, the ACA is a definite improvement over the pre-ACA status quo, no question, AND it is certainly one of the signature accomplishments of Obama's two terms.

But Obama himself said that logically, if one was buiding a health system from scratch, a SPHC system would be the way to go- morally, fiscally, etc.

It is a measure of how successful conservatives have been in moving the overton window, in that what once were conservative proposals (look at carbon credits, as another example) now are pilloried as the most liberal policies anyone could hope to achieve.

Which is PRECISELY WHY it is so important, vital even, that good Democratic Senators like Warren and Harris and Gillibrand and Booker and Franken are signing on to Single Payer in principle. We need to move that window BACK.

Or worse, they could wait until you're in the throes of ecstasy

and start talking dirty in the voice of Gilbert Gottfreid.

I don't think this guy was trying to store "all porn", more like he just wanted to test Amazon's

"unlimited storage" promise.

Kind of like going to the All You Can Eat restaurant and just setting up camp.

NO! we need a fully focused, no holds barred war on so-called "comedy"

Less laughing, more scowling. That's the way to win the midterms!

Nazis and other authoritarians hate, simply HATE being laughed at.

In fact, I'm pretty sure there's a straight mathematical inverse correlation between someone's ability to laugh at themselves, and the amount that they are full of shit.
