Oops. I misread the title of this piece: "The right to be stupid." I took it as prediction of the upcoming political season, and read it akin to a title like "The left to be timid."

My wife and I sold our guns to a gun shop after Obama was elected - we were less afraid of a conservative cataclysm. Technically they remained in circulation. more »

Hey, Jeff: Don't forget we're supposed to also throw these things into the balancing act: "form a more perfect union, establish justice, promote the general welfare." Though I guess these sound a litt more »

When Sununu backs a hard spending cap on defense which is lower than what we spend now, then I will unclog my ears to his bleating. Otherwise, he's just another RepubliKoch. more »

With a title like "David Carrâs BU syllabi reveal unique teaching style" I expected to see a syllabus or two - so I could see how the teaching style is revealed. more »

Maybe the editors meant to write this instead of what they did: "Like anyone else accused of a crime, they should be presumed somewhat innocent until finally proven guilty." more »

My vote: donate the art to the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. It stays with the public and not the plutocrats, and sending it to France keeps it out of the clutches of the greedy. Detroit can take a good-s more »

To the dismay of many conservatives (I'm sure), I admit I have friends in Europe. Several of them are visiting right now. One of them developed severe back pain yesterday, and they asked me about seei more »

The proposed plan's pre-existing condition provision is how they accomplish ACA's "individual mandate" requirement. No one is required to buy something they don't want. But if later they need the insu more »

Another way to think of it is this. Suppose the statement is "you should be put to death." What is the difference between the situations where Samuel Alito says that to the guy whose dog has pooped on more »

Hi, Joan. You ought to read more newspapers or watch cable or listen to the radio more. To get the comparison right, the statement should be "Christie deserves Clinton-level scrutiny."

Sununu is simply being honest. Most of the ideas in Obamacare were created by Republicans and conservatives, so naturally they cannot work.

"Disapproval isnât an argument, let alone a definitive one." Words conservatives live by, certainly.
