Journalist David Sirota has just published an excellent op-ed titled Americas new aristocracy lives in an accountability-free zone, which begins with the observation that Enron executives were among the last politically connected criminals to face any serious consequences for institutionalized fraud. Sirota goes on to remind readers how there was never any attempt by either mainstream political party to bring accountability to anyone responsible for monstrous offenses ranging from the disastrous invasion of Iraq to the ecocidal manipulations of fossil fuel plutocrats to the Wall Street plundering which led to the 2008 global financial crisis.

If you cant convince someone to support abortion with bodily rights arguments, try pushing the money angle, Chelsea Clinton told a group of abortion activists Saturday. CNS News reports Clinton claimed the infamous U.S. Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade was a good thing, not only because it gave women the dignity to make our own choices, but also because it led to a $3.5 trillion boost to Americas economy. It is not a disconnected fact
that American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy. Right? Clinton said during a Rise Up for Roe rally protesting U.S. Supreme Court ...

Family Denied Worker's Compensation Because Worker Killed in Accident Legally Used Marijuana
Post Date: 2018-07-28 18:15:53 by Gatlin
We've heard of people being punished for using legal marijuana, but now apparently those problems also extend to a cannabis user's family as well. A widow in Colorado is being denied half of the compensation she's owed after an accident that killed her husband. And the reason they're denying half the compensation is because her husband had legally used marijuana. Adam Lee was an electrician in Colorado who was repairing a ski elevator in December 2016 when the machine began malfunctioning and he was killed. But now the state says they will only give Lee's family half of the compensation they are owed since a toxicology report done after his death determined he had ...
Stoner study: Regular marijuana use contributes to lack of motivation, foresight
Post Date: 2018-07-25 18:54:07 by Gatlin
Marijuana is arguably mainstream now, but frequent use has its drawbacks. According to an Australian study, marijuana is detrimental to long-term goal planning. Specifically, it affects episodic memory, which is the motor of episodic foresight, or the ability to time-travel into your future in your head and plan your goals. The studyavailable herecompared 57 pot smokers to 57 non- smokers in what the study called an Autobiographical Interview task. Every participant was asked to describe either an experience from their past or a possible scenario for their future based on a cue word. The frequent smokers, who smoked three or more times a week, found it more difficult to ...

I note that RimJob's quarterly grift has consumed almost all of the current quarter yet again. With just six days left in the month, it's currently at 97% and slowing down - they'll be lucky to have a handful of days without the heavyhanded begging notices all over the place - and I bet they can't wait for the next one to begin a week from today. And yet, after all these years and all those millions of dollars - a user still cannot edit a posting to correct errors or update the content. But a lot of fun was had at Olive Garden, I'm sure........ If anybody still hasn't been booted, like me, for doubleplusungood thoughts, please ask them if the Bush Picturelickers ...

Cindy McCain Set to Succeed Husband in Senate
Post Date: 2018-05-29 16:28:22 by hondo68
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and his wife Cindy (AP) As Arizonans prepare for their final salute to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Republicans and political pundits in the state privately tell Newsmax they expect the appointment of his wife, Cindy, to succeed him in the Senate. Of course, no one in the Grand Canyon State who spoke to us wants to go on record discussing what will happen when the ailing McCain no longer holds his seat. But those who did, agree almost unanimously, Cindy McCain following John in the Senate through appointment by Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., is a near certainty. "I've always assumed that was the arrangement," said a friend of the McCain family since ...
Texas, California, and the Tale of the Coyote

Texas, California, and the Tale of the Coyote Ive already had a couple of blog posts commenting on how Texas is kicking Californias you-know- what. Being a fiscal policy person, I always point to Californias punitive state income tax as an example of bad policy and highlight the absence of any income tax in Texas to explain the success of that state. But sometimes its just culture and attitude. Heres a joke comparing the two states, but its based on something that actually happened in Texas.

Libertarian Think Tank Let Boss Sexually Harass Workers
Post Date: 2018-03-10 13:36:08 by Gatlin
Libertarians hate coercion. To the extent that the anarcho-capitalist right justifies its worldview in moral terms, it is through an appeal to the obscenity of brute force. The problem with the welfare state, according to many libertarians, is not that it redistributes resources from rich to poor but that it accomplishes this by threatening wealthy tax dodgers with imprisonment. Individual liberty is sacrosanct, and just social policies are those that do not violate a persons will through a threat of state aggression. The logical flaws of this nonaggression principle are myriad. But most spring from the libertarians insistence on applying it arbitrarily, to suit ...

Dumbed-Down Security Briefings Still Too Difficult for Trump to Read
Post Date: 2018-02-09 11:36:04 by Willie Green
When Donald Trump was elected president, it quickly became obvious that the traditional national-security briefing a person in his position receives daily would be well beyond his zone of proximal development. The briefings were slimmed down in length, chopped up into easy-to-digest bullet points, and decorated with lots of graphs and pictures. Alas, the Washington Post reports, even the kiddie version of the presidential brief has proven too challenging. Now, Trump gets his briefing verbally. Trump, the Post reports, has opted to rely on an oral briefing of select intelligence issues because reading the brief which every president has been able to do since its existence ...
