wilwheaton: That’s the sound of the Democratic Party’s leader in the House caving on the argument that motivated Democrats for the past three years; or 80 years, if you want to get smart about it. But that’s the statement in support of the Reid Plan: “It is clear we must enter an era of austerity; to reduce the deficit through shared sacrifice.” So, to recap: just a few months ago: LESS TAXES...
John Boehner’s “blank check” lie →
wilwheaton: This is a straight-up lie. Not the everyday, casual fudging that politicians do, but a straight up lie. As the Government Accountability Office explains: “The debt limit does not control or limit the ability of the federal government to run deficits or incur obligations. Rather, it is a limit on the ability to pay obligations already incurred.” This isn’t a perfect metaphor, but...

The Rude Pundit →
A drug benefit cut for an old lady in a diaper and a closed tax loophole on private jets are not balance. That six bucks cut into that woman’s limited income in profound ways. To use the friend’s equation in reverse (times ten), $6 is like $3000. And even that’s not a big deal to the wealthy because you can bet that the woman is living paycheck to paycheck. The millionaire has shitloads of money...

wilwheaton: I honestly don’t give a shit about “Shared Sacrifice” because I didn’t fuck it up. I didn’t crash the economy, neither did teachers or public union workers or anyone like that. The people who earn less now than their fathers did 30 years ago didn’t fuck this up. You know who fucked this up? The very, very rich people! It drives me insane that Congress and the President aren’t...

eddyizm: Woman gang-raped by seven Haliburton employees. She can’t sue because of the fine print in her contract. When the criminal courts failed to act, her lawyers filed a civil suit, only to be met with Halliburton’s response that all her claims were to be decided in arbitration –… This is insane. First the woman is raped and then she can’t get justice of any kind. It is one...
