The MBF always has to show up somewhere in every NYTimes article of course...

For a Republican Party eager to avoid an extremist image, some political experts say, the upside-down flags are not welcome. “Things like upside-down flags and talk of secession are not helpful,” said Paul Green, a political science professor at Roosevelt University in Illinois. “The fringe — and both parties have a fringe — have a hard time understanding that politics is not religion. It’s about compromise. But these are true believers.”

Do the Democrats have a small and powerless fringe of Moonbats? Sure.
But you see Mr. Green it is like this, if a large group of people actually control the actions of a party then they can no longer be called a "fringe." I sort of thought a political science professor would know that without me telling them, but what do I know?

Let's see, that's $80K/year. Using the tax calculator at

[Link: www.calcxml.com...]

,,,his Federal Tax Liability, if he has 2 kids and puts $5,000/year in a 401K would be about $5,455

That makes him a leech! He needs to pay about $8,500 per person to pay his share of the annual budget. He's getting a great deal.

Qualified plan contributions - $5,000
Adjusted gross income = $75,000
Standard/Itemized deductions - $11,900
Personal exemptions - $7,600
Taxable income = $55,500
Tax liability before credits $7,455
Child tax credits - $2,000
Estimated tax liability = $5,455

I don't think our Government really makes it clear what a Good Deal most people get--even those making "$40/hour"

I detest people who live in this country, and take advantage of everything it offers, such as the ability to make $40 an hour, send their children to school, etc., etc., etc., and complains because they pay the lowest amount of taxes in I believe any industrialized nation. Where cocksuckers like Grover Norquist not just drive ludicrous discussion surrounding tax policy, but buy and threaten elected officials.

Fuck this guy and fuck all the others who think we should be a nation of I Got Mine, Fuck You.

Why does working 6 days a week mean he can't listen to talk radio? He doesn't have radio access at work? He works every moment except when he's asleep and doesn't sully the sabbath with radio?

The more interesting part is that he wanted to incite trouble with his free speech. Why? Did he need a reason to "strike back"?

In any event, I'm happy to hear he has merely annoyed veterans and other sensible people and is left stewing by himself.

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Fiscal Conservatism Seems Alive and Well in Ottawa: 8,900 Public Service Jobs to Be Cut
When Con­ser­v­a­tives un­der Stephen Harper took of­fice in 2006, I was dis­ap­pointed at how much they re­sem­bled their pre­de­ces­sors when it came to their pen­chant for in­creas­ing the size of gov­ern­ment.

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

Healing Is the Message at Interfaith Service for Victims of Sunday’s Shootings

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry.
