Thoughts on Death & Taxes
What I don’t think the rich (and those who support them) truly understand is that we, the 99%, don’t want to punish them for being rich. We don’t want to take away what they’ve earned, or ultimately change their way of life. Ultimately all we want, at the most basic level, is to die at a comfortable age amongst our family and know that they are taken care of. In my heart...

abaldwin360: WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than two years after Obamacare passed, a longtime Republican congressman admits that his party has “no” plan to replace it if they succeed in getting rid of the landmark health law.

Big question I’ve had for a long time. They keep using that phrase “Repeal and Replace,” well, replace with what? If you legitimately want to reform health care why not just attempt to fix what you believe is broken with the big ass law we already passed? Of course the reality is they don’t want to improve health care and health care access. They want you to pay up or die....

stfusexists: Did anyone notice that Fox & Friends has replaced the co-anchor they offended into leaving with sexist jokes (Gretchen Carlson) with a look-alike?! Haven’t you noticed that Fox News casts women so that they’re mostly interchangeable?: I think it’s because their audience fears change… well, that or they just love themselves some white blonde ladies.

duskroses: AHAHAHA. I pretty much associate John Kerry with Mitt Romney too — lacklustre, obscenely wealthy White Massachusetts politician with no charisma, up against an incumbent with a relatively loyal base, but with several detractors. Except that Kerry and Romney (and therefore Bush and Obama) are from the opposite party. Hyup, it’s pretty fun to be on the other side of the 2004...
