Non snark response…”not coming close to paying fair share…” According to who, Drew? Those one percent are more successful in doing whatever it is they do to earn their seemingly, to you, obscene amounts of money. It is theirs, though. Maybe it’s a Gates, a Niclaus, a Federer, a Hanks, even. All people aren’t equally gifted, smart, motivated. Never will be. But yet, there will be legions of others who are damned determined to termite into their wallets. It’s unseemly and obscene.

I wasn’t assuming that. That was your projection, I guess. Anyway, we will never agree on this issue.

That was the defending Master’s champ chunking four in the agua. Very painful. Spieth off in 6 minutes!

A small distinction, but I would characterize it as an imbalance in power (that has been increasing) that enables the powerfully rich to reap nearly all of the gain due to productivity and technology, more than a taking of wealth from others.

It took the Mayor Bottoms administration seven weeks to respond to a 26 Jan Open Records Request to provide former Mayor Reed’s credit card statements. It’s a virtual certainty there’s no valid excuse for the delay. It did coincidentally afford time for Reed to review records himself, and reimburse the city for some of the charges on the credit cards, prior to the credit card statements being released to the AJC. The GBI is already investigating alleged willful delay and obfuscation of the Reed administration with respect to ORR concerning city water bills of Reed, Reed family members and others… Read more »

GOP prospects for maintaining the current advantage in the House in November are bad, very bad, or very very bad. The Senate is another matter. This column by Charlie Cook notes that toss up races in the Senate overwhelmingly tend to break one way or the other in a given election year. Dating to 1998, 7-10 toss up races per election with 80% going to one party or the other in that cycle. Cook currently has seven in the toss up category: NV, ND, WV, IN and MO currently Dem, and AZ and TN currently GOP; eight making a total… Read more »

Whenever we camped, the fire was burning from sun up to whenever dad went to bed. water was being boiled for coffee, tea, and washing dishes long before I got out of my sleeping bag. While mom had a little electric fry pan for bacon and pancake production, I was in charge of the 4 sets of pudgy pie makers. I took the maker apart, wiped down the insides with butter, cracked and egg into it, and added salt before I set them in pockets I made in the fire under the grates holding the water kettle. Best wood smoked… Read more »

Republicans rigged our democracy. Here’s how Democrats can fight back — David Faris at The Guardian :https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/mar/31/republicans-rigged-democracy-democrats-fight-back “Gerrymandering, the Citizens United atrocity that declared money is speech, blocking US supreme court nominations and obstructing legislation are some of the Republican party’s tactics.” “Beginning with the Gingrich radicals who took over the House in 1994, the modern Republican party has been willing to exploit the constitution’s design flaws and the constitutional order’s reliance on informal understandings between political actors to sabotage the functioning of Congress, destroy the Obama presidency, and seize vastly more power than the American people would otherwise have… Read more »

Wow! Ok. Your devotion to your side is admirable. Not even a tip of the cap to a powerful and passionate Regular Guy! This man is the definition of Common Sense. The best since Joe the Plumber. And as such, look for your side to descend on him like locusts.

Well, the Libs are doing their damnedest to screw Americans out of their 2nd Amendment freedom, now look at their efforts to do the same damn thing to American’s First Amendment liberties, too. Real Americans are watching and taking copious notes. November can’t get here soon enough!
