Culture makes all the difference.– Mitt Romney, explaining why Israelis are rich and Palestinians are poor.

sweetupndown9: A very popular humor blogger The Frogman is encouraging his army of followers to “go to chick-fil-a and seductively feed one another waffle fries.” So a bunch of people went to Chick-fil-a and spent their money at the establishment, so they could “make a scene” by feeding people (typically of the same sex) waffle fries. Now, I’m not an expert on business or anything…. but if you...

sweetupndown9: I am normally an incredibly optimistic person. Can any of you guys even begin to fathom the amount of anger I have about this? To KNOW that Ryan is not healthy. But he’s being forced to leave home, to leave safety, to leave a positive environment that was helping him get better. To know that not a single god damned Marine in charge of him cares enough to pull their head out of...
Americans are working approximately 11 more hours...
abaldwin360: Americans are literally working themselves to death. America is the most overworked nation in the developed world and Americans have become hostage to their jobs that has made their work-life balance unattainable. President Franklin Roosevelt in 1937 signed into law the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) as part of his New Deal agenda, establishing the five-day, 40-hour maximum...

squashed: The Republicans are trying to set up a “Government vs. Private Enterprise” debate. This is a lot like a Cardiovascular System vs. Skeletal System debate. Both are important. They do different things. When I tried to redesign my hamster by removing all the bones to implant a couple extra hearts, it didn’t end well.

Obama's Biggest Blunder Yet →
kohenari: Yesterday morning, Andrew Sullivan wrote a lengthy blog post about President Obama’s “You didn’t build that” line. I thought we were done with this nonsense a full week ago, but apparently we’re not nearly there yet. I say this not because of Sullivan’s post — or at least mostly not because of it — but because Matt Lewis, over the Daily Caller, exults that one of Obama’s biggest...

notentirely: “Today, Sandy Weill advocating for what amounts to reinstating Glass-Steagall is akin to Darth Vader turning his back on evil. It’s Dr. Frankenstein throwing his monster into the torch wielding mob. It’s like… it’s not like anything we’ve seen before. It’s the creator of the mega-bank destroying his own work.”
demnewswire: Tampered Wait a minute, Romney deliberately altered the meaning of the President’s words. Actually, he was talking about, ‘building infrastructure and education, not that individuals don’t build their businesses. Romney’s been caught doing this before. Another attack ad was called ‘a blatant fast one for manipulating video of the President’. See the whole tape and decide for...
