“What is "big abortion"? Is that like Big Oil or Big Pharma? Abortion is not an industry, Michelle, it's a medical procedure that is legal in this here U.S. of A.

Sakes alive, that woman is a complete idiot.”

“Why is it not an industry? It is highly profitable. Gosnell was making close to 2M a year as an abortion doc.”

“You know, that "Car insurance is a state law" argument is beginning to wear thin with me. You're still being forced by a government body to buy car insurance, right? Does it matter which government body at the end of the day?

I just wish the people who are opposed to this health care law (who typically have health insurance already) would say what they really mean. That they WANT OTHERS to pay more for health insurance. They want OTHERS to get shtupted by insurance companies. They want to see people suffer. And they apparently WANT to cut their noses off to spite their faces, but then go to the emergency room to get it put back on forcing the taxpayer to pay cough up the money for it.”

“You miss one big point on the car insurance point. For those who chose to drive a car, you need to buy car insurance. For those who don't, use other options - cab, train, bus, bike, walk. Current framing is a tax on all of us. Would have been easier for the Feds if Obama had just said that but since he went out of his way to say it wasn't, the arguement falls apart.

No wonder the argument above is wearing thin on you...you don't understand the reference.”

“I wasn't forced to buy car insurance. My ex-wife lives in the city and has never driven (and has never been forced to by car insurance).”

“But who will show up? Miller-McCune wrote a story about three researchers at The Ohio State University who say that when holding a mirror up to the political satire on The Colbert Report you probably see your own perceptions staring back at you.

“This is so childish. It's like when you were a kid and you filled up your glass and your friend's glass with the exact same amount of Kool-Aid, down to the nanoparticle, so neither one of you felt cheated.

What's next? Why don't we just make the whole of ground zero and within a radius of two blocks one giant religious amusement park. Every religion will get its own land (including the Wiccans and Scientologists) complete with rides and animatronic, fully articulated displays of its religious figures.

There is a mosque at the Pentagon, people. If the military can get over it, why can't you?”

Rush Limbaugh: Obama Created Recession As 'Payback' For Racism

Commented Jul 7, 2010 at 17:41:45 in Politics

“Nobody seems to see the obvious, here. The extension of benefits (or non-extension) affects black people, too. So, if this is "payback" — as Rush "Racism is My Middle Name" Limbaugh believes, then Obama couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. These unemployment benefits affect EVERYONE without the prejudice of color.”

dzoner on Jul 7, 2010 at 17:46:11

“... the 'obvious' here is that there is no 'here' here.”

Soundofthunder on Jul 7, 2010 at 17:44:57

“Yes, there is quite a lot of confusion in Rush's arguments. First, he wants to claim ALL the unemployed people are black, THEN uses a white woman as an example of Obama's "payback" mentality. Which is it, Rush? Are the unemployed predominantly white or are they black?

Just another self-negating point from Rush, a perennial professional know-nothing.

“Why do people always think like that? Why do they always make it an all or nothing proposition? Why can't humans work on improving the lot of humanity AND make scientific discoveries that further humanity's understanding of its place in the universe? Ignorance never fed the masses either. Geez, this really get me steamed sometimes. Why not just teach kids English and Home Economics and be done with it? Science pushes us forward.”

“One thing I read over and over in stories like this is how designers "can't design" for bigger women because the extra fabric and seams throw off their ability to be creative. And to that I say, sounds to me like the designers aren't very good. Clearly, they aren't creative enough. You can make a dress that looks like a tree house, but you can't make something gorgeous in a size 14? Sounds like the problem isn't with the "fat chicks," it's with the designer and their lack of vision.”

“I have to agree with you. I don't know if he's *shamelessly* trading on his legacy, I mean he isn't hawking anything (at least nothing the HuffPo story indicates), and he's been pretty good about staying out of the limelight like other children of rock stars. But you are so right that the original photo was as much an expression of love as any I have ever seen, and you totally nailed it in your description that the photo looks like an underwear ad. It lacks the raw sensuality of the original. She's so obviously a model, and is so obviously made-up and lit perfectly, and so obviously posed in a specific way that isn't close to the original but meant to focus on her body. What was beautiful about the original is that despite the fame of the subjects, Lennon in particular was just an "ordinary guy."”
