Hey, Jeff Jacoby, how about YOU put on a helmet and be the tip of the spear as America marches into Crimea to liberate it? You conservatives are pretty brave when it's other people who have to do the more »

Hey, I'm so old, I remember when Stephen Colbert gave a speech to the White House Correspondents Dinner. Why would these activists want him to stop? http://politicalhumor.about.com/od/stephencolbert more »

Baker represents government of, by, and for the 1 Percent.

They should set the NSA after the hedge funds. Find the money they stole.

I'm glad President Obama commuted those sentences. 20 years is too long for selling drugs. For those commenters who lack compassion in their hearts, perhaps they will use their heads: it is worth the more »

I went to that study, NatMorton, and the first thing it says is it was made for the Boston Foundation, a bunch of wealthy donors with preconceived notions about charter schools and teacher unions. Te more »

Why won't Sen. Ayotte think of the thousands of veterans who could use this help from SNAP? She's grown out of touch with the needs and lives of ordinary people. She wants to cut the stimulus but th more »

Our job is to help. We should help the people in the Phillippines. And this why America should increase the SNAP (food stamp) benefit above the paltry $30/week level it is at. There are people in A more »
