There are few states which to me embody dysfunction more than Illinois. The place is out of control. It is hamstrung by state employee and teacher unions which demand to be paid lavish pensions even though the state is effectively out of money and is clinging to its credit rating. If they are allowed, the Illinois state employee unions will hollow out the finances of the state (even more) and Illinois will continue down the path Detroit has already walked.
It must be hard to stay in a half million dollar per year part-time (very part-time) job when you just can’t seem to care about money.
Chelsea’s like Mother Theresa.
It’s funny, there are still many people in this country who are concerned with medical marijuana.That making pot available to patients will unleash some horrible drug genie. And yet one never hears these people complaining about medical heroin, and we have widespread legalized medical heroin, aka oxycodone and oxycontin in this country.
New York is not the most straightforward place to do business. The politicians of the state have long asserted their “right” to meddle (one way or the other) in the affairs of the private sector. Late night comedy it appears to be no exception.
The times they are a changin’ and they are a changin’ in jolly old England.
I was talking to a fellow the other day over lunch and we both wondered how it was that Eric Holder could possibly, at this point, remain the Attorney General of the United States. It’s been one blatant abuse of power after another with this guy. Yet he remains.
In fairness Romney is probably not fully involved at this point. The establishment Republicans are seeking desperately to find a candidate which keeps the current GOP power structure in place.
Pleased to see this.
We have no affiliation with the Kochs for the record. (Seems we always have to say this.)
Contrary to what we are often told in the media, and by Harry Reid, the stances the brothers take publicly are in our opinion far more right than wrong. On this one they are clearly right and even some progressives acknowledge it.
We’ve had an amazing run in the markets and many people think the bull will just keep on running. Maybe so. But eventually every bull runs out of steam even ones which are fed by the Fed.
We at ACC have been highlighting the “warrior cop” phenomenon for a couple of years. The militarization of police forces is a very bad thing for our country. Cops shouldn’t have MRAPs, and grenade launchers and they certainly should not have snipers actively scanning protests.
But a “federal police czar”? A czar? This is one of the most colossally stupid ideas I’ve heard in the past month and I just came from Washington DC.
