Synchronicity: Guns, Insurance and a Cultural Revolution
Maiello: What Marcus and Brookings Don't Get
Ginsberg: Hillary, the TPP, and Me
I have seen the idea expressed somewhere that Clinton's new position on TPP is a shot across the bow against Biden. As Vice-Pres he is obligated to support Obama on TPP.
But there's another
tasting the fruit on the vine ...
up for a threesome?
It's sad to have to say it but in today's world I'm worried that he won't have enough money to compete with all the cash his republican opponents will have.
You skipped a step didn't you. Are you confident that he will have enough money to compete with his...
Internet meme say:
Laugh out loud - roll on floor too -
No one know you dog
A grueling ordeal or thin soup..
I have no problem with gun insurance but I think people are exaggerating the effect it will have. Even with the high rates of car insurance there didn't seem to be any diminution of car ownership. Also insurance would require all guns be registered by the states or a national registry. I favor...
I think most of us agree that citizen's united and money in politics is the most detrimental force in government. But I don't think unilateral disarmament is the answer. That Sanders isn't taking any large donations doesn't make me feel better about him, it makes me feel worse. If he wins, great...
Ha! Thanks for taking on the challenge. moat! Your haiku made me laugh out loud. :-)
The public has known this for a long time that the politicians are addicted to this money. It is easy money and they don't have to campaign as hard. I think Bernie tapped into this and that is why he is doing as well as he is. He is also working very hard as well as his campaign. It is hard...
I am pretty sure the challenge haiku engraving shows a couple. One bird says to the other:
Yes, there is nectar.
But your beak need not explore
each flower that blooms.
If these guys, 'our rebels' are 'CIA vetted' good guys, why aren't we dropping them anti-aircraft missiles too? Maybe just maybe ISIS might get anything we give to these guys......ya think?
Agreed. And rates would vary like cars as to the type of gun they own and what the purpose of owning the gun is. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/02/assault-weapons-...
Gun insurance, properly priced, would put the external costs of gun ownership back onto the gun owners. As for all the responsible gun bearers who always object to things like this -- if they truly are responsible and can prove it, they will be rewarded for their good choices with the lowest...
Interesting question. Certainly opposition to the TPP is now associated with progressives so Hillary is, according to Marcus we can suppose, too far to the left on trade. Opposition to the Cadillac Tax is harder to mark on the left-right spectrum. But generally, I would suppose, the more...
Wonderful, moat!! Don't you want to try the "You do the haiku" challenge?
Listen to Ragtime
wearing a Nehru jacket ...
and people will stare.
Love is like Monday.
It takes up what was laid down
and draws you back in.
The steps are new and awkward.
Echoes off old walls warn me.
