They cheered 234 executions in Texas, and cheered the death of a hypothetical uninsured man, so you’d think it would be hard to argue booing a gay soldier is worse. But it is. Because he wasn’t a hypothetical case, he wasn’t a statistic, he was asking the question himself. If he didn’t see it broadcast live, he certainly will see the reaction. They booed a serving soldier to his face!
I’d say it’s hard to see how they’ll top this at the next debate, but I’m sure they will.
“I hear all this, you know, “Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever.”—No! There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there—good for you! But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea—God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”—
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren on class warfare.
“Google+ now open to everyone. Yes, everyone. Let’s see how much fun it is once the mother-in-laws and passive-aggressive stalkers show up.”—This will truly be the real test of Facebook vs. Google+, since the number one reason people said it was better than Facebook 2 months ago was “none of those people”. But you can’t beat Facebook by not letting everyone in.
“they’ve become like farmers who think buying seeds is a bad investment”—A friend of mine said this in response to the GOP opposition to Obama’s jobs plan, you know, because it involves spending money.
