Posted 02/19/2014 12:45:41 EST
And how exactly is the Obama administration supposed to figure out who to support in Syria. Large portions of the rebel forces differ from Asad only in lacking the resources to be as bad as he is.

The fact that a person you have authority over misbehaves doesn't make it OK for you to behave in the same fashion. Why is that so hard to get?

As is typical of the so-called "disability rights" movement, Mr. Kelly delicately avoids such few facts as he can be bothered to mention. Where laws of this sort have been passed, nursing homes have n more »

Posted 07/22/2013 11:49:14 EDT
I wonder if this is just such a new business model that the predators haven't figured out how to exploit yet. After all, that's an inevitable part of capitalism too.
Comment on: House GOP has no alternative to health care law - Politics - The Boston Globe

So what we have here is 800 words of House Republicans dancing around the reality that there is no alternative plan because they don't want one.

Has there been anything said by anyone against Trayvon Martin that you didn't rush to believe regardless of how unlikely it was? Are you even slightly acquainted with the concept of critical thinking?

"Jason Richwine.... has done nothing to embarrass Harvard Universty" No, he hasn't; that responsibility lies with the professors who claimed to find scholarly merit in such shoddy work. Even if there more »

Absolutely everybody benefits from effective transportation systems, so this "user should pay" notion is just baloney.

Reading comprehension must be at an all time low around here. The famous actress is not the one responsible for the "chorus of adulation", and she is not the one being criticized. I guess nuance is de more »

I guessed you skipped the part of the piece where the author is very clear about criticizing the some of the public reaction to Jolie's decision. Also, it most certainly is elective surgery if you're more »

CNN is lousy all the time, not just when you don't like what they say.

Accusing Congressional Republicans of partisan flimflaming is kind of like accusing Dick Cheney of being evil or Antonin Scalia of being an activist judge. It's so obvious it should hardly need to be more »

Harry Reid gets a lot of the blame for this one for not moving changing the filibuster rules that allow the Republicans to hold the nation's business hostage to their extremist fantasies.
