Par For The Course: John Boehner is relentlessly attacking Obama for assuming dictatorial powers through his abuse of Executive Orders. Never mind that Boehner's claim that “President Obama is issuing more than his predecessors” is not true,” truth has had little to do with the ongoing GOP attacks against Obama.
Publicity Health: The government of Sierra Leone,
Different Strokes: A GOP candidate for MI state legislature say his “stool of conservatism” is held up by “faith, family and freedom,” and that voters should overlook his many convictions for masturbating on other people's cars. After all, he has “dreams.”
Volunteers: Some 600,000 Facebook dweebs were unwittingly the subject of experiments by Facebook in which the content of the news feeds appearing on the website was manipulated to see if there was “experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks.” In essence, Mark wanted to see if he could play with your emotions.

The move is designed to divert attention from the fact that the country has no intention of giving up landmines in general, even though they kill over 15,000 people a year, nearly all of them civilians.

It has many technical advantages that other (here to be nameless) operating systems cannot match. (Full disclosure: This blog is written on computers running Linux Mint 16 with the Cinnamon desktop, Firefox open source browser, Open Office word processing and Linux-based GIMP graphics. And in all probability, the webserver you are using to access this is also running Linux. Go Teams.)

Dear Sir: Ms. Coulter
In Another Country: Three out of four American conservatives think that poor people in the US “have it easy because they can get government benefits without doing anything." While bankers have to ruin the economy and foreclose on millions of homeowners to earn their handouts.
Test Tube: Kansas' experiment with lower taxes on businesses in order to spur job creation has resulted in a lower rate of job creation and a lot less income for the state. It's a lose-lose.
Obamacare Works! Profits in the healthcare sector of the economy are looking up as 8 million more people are paying for health insurance (greatly subsidized by the government) and are now beginning to take pills like Real Americans.
The Parting Shot:
