Neither can the congress rein him in; and we the people experience the consequences.

Yes, Turk, while we're at it, let's hope the lion likes down with the lamb.
Comment on: G-7 is Westâs best tool against Vladimir Putin - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/31/2014 10:39:56 EDT
"tedious and old", maybe, but not irrelevant. Those who view history as "irrelevant" are "doomed to repeat it".

Comment on: Raise earnings, but go beyond the minumum wage to do it - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/23/2014 12:26:11 EDT
What's with this "public subsidy"? The public is US and we are staggering under our tax burden as it is. How many additional straws can the camel's back support?
Comment on: How the NRA thwarted a good doctor - Opinion - The Boston Globe

Joan, you were on a roll just long enough to give us hope that your were cultivating at LEAST objectivity. But with this article, you slipped back into the mire. BIG time.
Posted 03/23/2014 11:38:23 EDT
William Slim: your comment must be a wry joke. Or a case of extreme naivete. Obama also assured us that we could keep our doctor, etc., etc. As for naivete, ask the SG wannabe for an antidote. O, more »

Not to sound "catty", but HONEST liberals ?

Comment on: Senator Edward Markey did little to vet claims of constituents he cited as victims of Herbalife sales practices - Nation - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/15/2014 09:04:58 EDT
Don't blame it on the opposing party; we the voters have a responsibility to vote responsibly. MA deserves its reputation for automatically voting democratic, and this "quirk" has not served us well.
Posted 03/15/2014 09:01:24 EDT
Want to take bets on the "vetting" of Markey's role in all this? We can start with his bank accounts, but that'll probably be futile as he's probably found a way around FATCA which he's helped saddle more »

Posted 02/26/2014 06:25:09 EST
How about multi-colored ramps? Incorporate the colors ok'd by various groups, yet which still offer adequate visibility to the impaired.

Posted 02/15/2014 01:54:57 EST
Let's see. "Cheers the specter of a person dying because they couldn't afford health insurance". The dying specter would be the result of the ACA 's forcing him into a plan he didn't want, didn't su more »

Posted 02/15/2014 09:44:18 EST
Who doesn't "get it"? The decision that several TV's are needed, state of the art electronics are must-haves is a poor decision. And the "bank's" raising the credit limit only facilitates the bad de more »
