Saw Paul Ryan proposes giving block grants to states to give healthcare subsidies if King V Burwell overturns the exchanges.

I think people do not realize that most of the so-called conservative think tanks are actually not Conservative on economic issues. They like the welfare state and they want the providers to be cronies.

yes we know rse, does hate crime include death penalty, because if this isn't a clear and convincing case,

Agreed, Harry Stein's essay is wonderful.

He says Seinfeld is a liberal, which I don't doubt, but it's to Seinfeld's credit that I have no idea based on the show, and if anything might have thought otherwise. Not coincidentally, I'd say the same thing about Larry David and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." I guess what I'd add to Stein's piece is the importance of being able to laugh at oneself, which Seinfeld/David can do. Jon Stewart occasionally does it, but more often puts his political agenda first.

So proud that OrangeDrank has a good working relationship with 404 because that's what the GOP campaigned on in November.

I can't say what I really think about Boehner, Ryan and the rest of the so-called "leadership of the House GOP, because this is a family blog.

"They can all die in a fire" is the kindest thing I can think of, and that doesn't even begin to express how I feel about them.

Miss Marple

I don't want Boehner to have a good working relationship with Obama.

In fact, I would like to see barricades set up between the Capitol Building and the White House.

What an arrogant, narcissistic a*hole oBOzo has once again shown himself to be . . .

He didn't even have the decency to wait until after the funerals to politicize those victims' tragic deaths. Then he uses false representations of "facts" to justify his hubris. What a champ !

Running errors at the grocery store as red still wants all her favorites while she is home.

http://civilrightsdocs.info/pdf/policy/letters/2015/Ensure-A-Reauthorized-ESEA-Letter-6-18-2015%20.pdf is the letter from various civil rights groups. One of the things wanted is for states to have an obligation to eliminate disparaties in resources among school districts. As I just poinetd out on my blog, that will have affluent citizens paying once in property taxes to their own district and again in state taxes to fund other districts.

One reality is that there are way too many school districts and they serve as a key employer in many rural areas along with area hospitals and the closest higher ed facility. Lots of places in this country have no real economy not financed by Uncle Sam.

Captain Hate

The only barricades are set up between the ruling class and us.

I used to marvel at how cynical some old timers in my home town were at hating all politicians and saying they're all crooks. Obviously they had believed in the GOP.

it is rare to have this much category error, outside of a Flathead column:

Do not skimp on the reasons in the US interest behind the successful strategy: We prevented a humanitarian tragedy on a vast scale. … The US has demonstrated its principled belief in the rule of law and acted on the basis of the United Nations resolution. We have supported the legitimate aspirations of the Libyan people for democracy and freedom. We have ousted a murderous dictator who has been terrorism, civil war throughout Africa and a prop for dictators elsewhere. By acting in Libya we have helped advance the cause of democracy and freedom throughout the Arab world. … We have put Assad on notice that the sands of time have run out for him as well. Our successful strategy in Libya stands as a warning that our strategy will work again.

Right on schedule:

http://thehill.com/regulation/245280-gun-owners-not-likely-to-use-firearms-for-self-defense-study-claims

A new study attempts to debunk the claim that gun owners rely on their firearms for self-defense.

The left-leaning Violence Policy Center released a study Wednesday that finds people are much more likely to use a gun to kill someone without cause than to protect themselves.

According to the study, gun owners committed 259 justifiable homicides compared to 8,342 criminal homicides in 2012, the most recent year data was available.

That means gun owners are 32 times more likely to kill someone without cause than to act in self-defense, the study reasoned.

Heinous acts of ignorance and emotional instability? Sorry, this thread isn't about the number of black-on-black murders in Baltimore since the riots. A number far greater than nine. But, please, continue to dance on the dead bodies with your soulmate Øbama.

right off the back I see a problem, they lump gun owners, legitimate I assume, with all homicides,

If someone has a stolen or otherwise illegally obtained gun they're considered a gun "owner" in that study. Brilliant.

Let's go to the range together, Ben. You can learn all about triggers, bitch.

Eric in Boise

That means gun owners are 32 times more likely to kill someone without cause than to act in self-defense

Narc and jimmyk caught the error here, of course, as I'm sure did others. Another way of interpreting this is that there are 32 times more gang bangers pulling triggers than there are lawful citizens fighting back. That's an argument for carrying lawfully, not an argument against.

You're kinda white, yourself, bitch.

Appalled

I'm not sure why the tragedy in Charleston has to bring out the vileness here -- but it seems mandatory.

Got to say, there are many times when the blacks in South Carolina would have enjoyed enjoying their 2nd Amendment rights -- and I'm not sure a Hawaii progressive quite understands that, right before a lynching, or right after, the friendly neighborhood Sheriff often sent his boys around to make sure the local black folk didn't have any weaponry.

I'm not a big fan of the 2nd Amendment, but until it is repealed-- and there is an honest constitutional effort to do so -- it does need to be respected.

DebinNC

and the study doesn't account for the many crimes deterred by a firearm that do not result in a homicide.

Or the high likelihood in places like GA of most potential victims having a gun and knowing how to use it.

I'm just watching streams right now, NK, so I don't have a complete opinion yet. It's telegenic, so far, from my small-screen vantage point.

There are fifteen players under par at this point, so they've figured out how to avoid much of the punishment. I'll be interested to hear the pro's assessment after the first round.

It’s also mildly amusing/disturbing how closely all the nerdy, medicated, spree-killing geeks resemble the progressive pundits who are caterwauling for unilateral disarmament of the citizenry. They look nothing like the fat and hairy—yet unmistakably male—Georgia hilljacks who milled around the gun show in Gainesville. And although I’m supposed to fear those “angry white males,” I felt far less hostility emanating from the convention floor than I do whenever I’m around leftist girly-boys.

Amen, sista.

I think nearly all of you will be pleased to learn that I have solved the problem of which woman should be on the new ten dollar bill. (Some of you may even be jealous that you didn't think of her yourselves.)

Martha My Dear

Let’s start with currency notes – paper money. Martha Washington is the only woman whose portrait has appeared on the face of a U.S. currency note. She appeared on the face of the $1 Silver Certificate of 1886, 1891 and 1896. But there was another woman who appeared on U.S. paper currency as part of a historical scene. Pocahontas appeared on a $10 bank note in 1869 and a $20 demand note in 1865.

(Far right side, I think in Indian garb)

Jim Miller

But you needn't be jealous; instead you can use your photoshop sills to prepare some sample bills.

Eric in Boise

I felt far less hostility emanating from the convention floor than I do whenever I’m around leftist girly-boys.

In Terrence Moore's classic 2004 "Wimps and Barbarians" essay, he treated the two groups as mutually exclusive. What he didn't mention is that sometimes, as we've recently seen, both traits are combined into one person, and we get a wimp/girly-boy with barbaric tendencies. That's where things really get dangerous.

from squaredance's 4:37 link -

" Maybe those who claim they’re earnestly seeking an answer to Friday’s bloodbath should focus less on Gunsville and more on Pillsville. But right on the heels of their howling about NO GUNS came cries for MORE PSYCHIATRY. I don’t expect these remnants of 1960s ethics to ever blame drugs for anything. But what puzzles me is their newfound blind support of government. How did they turn from being the harshest critics of “The Man” in the 1960s to being his most brainwashed advocates today?

It’s also mildly amusing/disturbing how closely all the nerdy, medicated, spree-killing geeks resemble the progressive pundits who are caterwauling for unilateral disarmament of the citizenry. They look nothing like the fat and hairy—yet unmistakably male—Georgia hilljacks who milled around the gun show in Gainesville.

Yes, OL - and Mrs OL is there too and she's talking smack about you.

She'll probably deny it if you ask, tho. And I'm probably just making it up. You're safe, nothing to worry about.

But you took some pretty fuhhhhhh-nnnnnnnnnnny pics back in the last 70s. She won't stop. It's hillarious.

But it's not happening. I'm worse than Obama when it comes to telling the truth. You have nothing to fear.
