In these Red States that refused Obamacare/Medicaid expansion, the unpaid emergency room trips will still be passed on to taxpayers. The Republicans in Congress just want to feel good about knowing they made someone’s life miserable. The GOP can not turn down increasing someone else’s suffering. It’s their Jesus move.

So much for the “home of the brave” part of the Star Spangled Banner, Beauregard Lindsey Graham…now you done scared John McCain and Barbara

The Republicans need fear to control their yellow belly voters.

Jon Stewart Completely Emasculates Lindsey Graham For His Fearmongering Over ISIS

"[Graham] lives his life trapped in the Blair Witch Project. For God’s sake, I’ve seen chihuahuas in handbags who are less fretful and shaking."

With the outsourcing of most traditional manufacturing jobs and the rise of the service economy, in which most people who work stare into a screen all day — whether they work at Target or on Wall Street — has come a set of cultural shifts Scott does not mention. Work and entertainment exist on a continuum with no clear dividing line between the two, and the distinction between producer and consumer has become confused. Indeed, an individual citizen’s most important economic role, in the post-industrial West, is that of a consumer, inhaling goods, products, services and entertainment, as much of that as possible delivered electronically or shipped to your door. (Consumption power has grown even as real income has fallen and inequality has grown, one of the many paradoxes in late capitalism.) Being a producer in the old-fashioned sense comes second if it comes at all. Many of us — myself and A.O. Scott very much included — produce things that aren’t even things, and whose exchange-value and social utility are nebulous at best.

"If only Michael Brown, instead of holding his hands over his head, reached down to his waist and lifted up his shirt, to show the gun he did not actually have, well, this whole tragedy could’ve been avoided.

Do you not understand that life in this country is inherently different for white people and black people?”

Sean Hannity doesn’t have a fucking clue about anything based in reality.  He lives exclusively in his own delusion.

Now leading HuffPost Politics: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has come out in favor of making poor people prove they’re not on drugs if they want food stamps or unemployment insurance — even if it means a showdown with the federal government.

Get the full story here.

Another fake problem for Republicans to create an invasive and unnecessary response. There is barely any fraud to justify this action, but leave it Conservatives to ramp up their vindictive kicks while a person is down.

In my very strong opinion — and I speak to you as chairman of the veterans committee in the Senate — I do not believe that people fought and died for democracy so that billionaires can buy elections.

Gender isn’t a game you can play and win by brutalising and harassing and shaming and hurting the other ‘side.’ Ultimately, there is no other side. Gender oppression is structural. Everybody loses, in the long term, because everybody has to live in a culture where it’s normal to hound women out of their homes for daring to demand fairer treatment, normal to shame girls and queer people into silence for suggesting that there might be other interesting stories to tell. There is no way to win this game, except by not playing at all.
