The only place I come across anti-conservative hostility is the Internet [...]

It's a shame that there is hostility out there.

Of course you don't mention any places with anti-liberal hostility because of course there are none.

Hey, John, I really appreciate that, and the same offer goes to you if you ever take a very wrong turn and find yourself in Seattle. Iv'e enjoyed our exchanges and look forward to more.

BTW, you might be amused to know that Carter absolved me and my fellow midshipmen of all our demerits during a Naval Academy football game. That presidential pardon made me an instant fan (I had A LOT of demerits) - but his post-presidential work is really what I admire most in that lustful man.

the really great thing about this thread's participants is that they have no bias prior to posting their informed opinions after extensive factual research

former enron advisor paul krugman on the war on poverty:

"So the whole poverty trap line is a falsehood wrapped in a fallacy; the alleged facts about incentive effects are mostly wrong, and in any case the entire premise that work effort = social mobility is wrong."


nobel laureate paul krugman on the war on poverty:

[Republicans are] deeply committed to the view that efforts to aid the poor are actually perpetuating poverty, by reducing incentives to work. And to be fair, this view isn't completely wrong. . . .

Our patchwork, uncoordinated system of antipoverty programs does have the effect of penalizing efforts by lower-income households to improve their position: the more they earn, the fewer benefits they can collect. In effect, these households face very high marginal tax rates. A large fraction, in some cases 80 cents or more, of each additional dollar they earn is clawed back by the government.


lonely nyt columnist paul krugman on the war on poverty:

"The thing is, we could be having a serious discussion about welfare and incentives; there are some real issues. But there isn't anyone to have that discussion with."

oh, that health care law that was so awesome and necessary that dems (and only dems) passed without actually reading it so that it could take effect as soon as possible?

suddenly not that big a deal

looks like politics are more important than health care for the uninsured and poor, right, f?

ACA subsidies for low income folks remain the same. This change has nothing to do with them.

CPAC starts tomorrow!! That means lots and lots of grandstanding about family values, the evils of gay marriage and sex outside of a Christian marriage. Meanwhile....on Craig's list:

And the infighting has started with people trying to ban Grover Norquist from the convention because he is a secret Muslim terrorist: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/05/frank-gaffney_n_4905219.html


(Norquist is married to a Muslim which has turned him into Part of the Problem for open bigots on the right making liberals simultaneously tickled and uncomfortably sympathetic about his situation.)

Well, it looks like the GOP is finally coming to understand what so many of us intelligent people have known for so long....

Grover Norquist is a douchebag.

I have a standing offer out to Ann Coulter but this is the 3rd CPAC in a row that she hasn't taken me up on it.
