"They targeted privileged liberal enclaves in Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York City over the past month to raise the consciousness of unsuspecting midmorning diners." And this is wrong? Who more deserves to be discomfited by the products of their own casual empty social impulses. We used to call them limousine liberals. I'm fine with that ilk being harassed by their protégés.
It would be easier to identify who would NOT benefit.

Are Facts Obsolete?

Facts have been obsolete since Moynihan had to make that classic observation about opinions vs facts. So the fact is facts no longer matter.
Right. Republicans' get excoriated for incidents from their pasts, but Obama perching like a poser burnishing his blackness in Rev. Wright's racist diatribes for 20 years is a big shrug.

Who's Responsible?

"We can only hope that Mayor de Blasio has some residual decency, so that he will not defile these two officers' memorial services with his presence." Mmmmm. Don't bet the farm on any such modest demonstration of either humility or awareness of deBlasio's own part in the tragedy. What NYers were thinking when they elected him is a complete mystery.
The media bears a large part of the responsibility for the "atmosphere." Feeling a deal of sympathy for the anti-establishment twits who flatter themselves that they speak truth to power, the media dote on these emptyheaded protesters who don't know or don't care about the facts of the Brown, Garner, and Zimmerman cases. Every night media crews turn out for every nut job who gets 4-5 friends to put on hoodies and cavort around screaming "hands up! don't shoot!" when they are only perpetuating a myth and they personally are under no threat in hopes of "confrontation with police." Recall De Blasio!!!!!

Grimes To Paul: I'll See You In Court

IT's too much to hope for that that tireless mo*ro*n Paul could be knocked out by a Kentucky statute when the Republicans don't control the legislature.
What SCOTUS should have done if it determined the mandate a tax was return the law to Congress to process the tax IAW well-established rules for creating a tax. Obamacare created a "mandate" which was not required to go thru the tax-creation process established by Congress. When it was rules a tax, it should not have been allowed to continue as it existed without proper processing. Requiring it to go back to Congress would have killed the whole thing.
Even if it weren't a lie, isn't the NY crowd the ones that hate wealth? Isnt it unseemly for them to celebrate the acquisition of such wealth?
The electric cars thing was a joke from the beginning. Why? Because the major source of electric energy is coal. It only stands to reason that more electric cars = more coal burning. Simple logic.
