The Trauma of Abortion Very Real in ‘The Tenth’s’ Fictional Realm

John C. Goodman:

Back by Popular Demand: Tyranny
Ham and eggs, dictators and plebiscites, tyranny and sham elections, they
all go together. So it was wholly to be expected, which means it was
wholly a surprise to our ever-alert administration, when the latest tsar
decided Crimea was ripe for the picking and sent in the Cossacks (sans
identifying insignia for now).
EPA Bureaucrats Paint the Town Red with Federal Charge Cards
There appears to be a flourishing culture of financial misconduct at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This culture has been perpetuated by a lack of administrative oversight leading to millions of taxpayer dollars being wasted.
Bitcoin’s success shows that there’s nothing sacred about money. A $100 bill can buy groceries for a family, or be used in a drug deal (90 percent of paper money in the U.S. has traces of cocaine on it). It’s only valuable because people believe it is valuable.

Obama Should Go to Business Night School
If I had been Barrack Obama's adviser when he was young I would have led, guided, pushed or simply threatened him to go to business school instead of law school.

Ronald Reagan's City of God
Conservatives constantly talk of freedom. Freedom. Freedom. Freedom. Go to any gathering of conservatives, and you will hear a freedom mantra. They speak of “freedom” almost as if it were a one-word synonym for conservatism, a slogan for the movement. At times, they do so in an almost trite way.
Another Open Letter to The President:

Cronyism: Another Addition to the Law of Bad Ideas
I have no idea how much car dealers donated to Chris Christie. But I do know a bad idea when I see one. And we know exactly how and why some bad ideas get implemented: campaign contribution bribes and political revenge.
