Posted 04/15/2014 02:28:05 EDT
Agreed. What we have now is the tragedy of the commons, on pavement. This makes a heck of a lot more sense than anything proposed in the original article, mainly because it's based on how people actua more »

Posted 04/11/2014 12:10:48 EDT
If she was going to be the fall guy for Obamacare, she would have been pushed out in November instead of resigning of her own accord now, after it's exceeded expectations. She's going now because the more »

Show me a quote from a Democratic senator to that effect and then you might have a point. Equating McConnell's statement with those from partisan hacks is disingenuous, to put it mildly.

Not even 24 hours after the attack and Republicans were already blaming the victims. What a vile bunch.

Posted 03/28/2013 10:59:37 EDT
As if the embarassing failure of the speculation that Iginla was coming to Boston wasn't enough, we have to compound it by speculating that it's because the Flames were demanding Subban? Look what the more »

Work harder if you want more money, stop crying to the government to give you more.
