    In defense of my state, it is more a case of being behind the times. Indiana has an inherent animosity to change of any kind. We are still complaining about Bobby Knight leaving IU and are firmly...

    Indiana has become a Tea Party State. The last election won a super majority for the GOP and most of them are very social conservative types. Add to that a Governor who wants to run for president...

    yeah. The great secret is revealed. The GOP did a wonderful job of getting out the vote and the Democrats didn't. Politics 101. The election is decided by those that show up. The GOP remembered...

    This falls into the FWIW category, but this seems to be shaking out as just another GOP witch hunt. If you don't like Clinton, then this matters, and is another reason not to vote for her. If you...

    There is a pretty important secondary effect from the Hillary Clinton's email 'scandal'. It keeps many of the GOP voters stirred up and angry about the liberal-outrage-de-jour. The GOP, JMO, is...

    Scott Walker

    Just an observation and a question from a good Democrat.

    Scott Walker is suffering from Dan Quale disease.

    Does he have a legit chance of getting the nomination?

  9. Oklahoma lawmakers aim to halt Advanced Placement history course

    Evidently the good people of Oklahoma are too educated for the legislature. So it is important to not let them learn any history. Goodness knows, we don't want our smartest and brightest finding...

    Indiana has a law like that. It is currently being changed to allow Mike Pense to run for both Governor and President. Would not be surprised to see Kentucky do the same.

    I agree. The problem with the complexity of the progressive tax code is not the progressiveness. It is the deductions. Get rid of them and doing your taxes becomes very easy.

    No, I think it is fair to say he doesn't. The two early anti-vaccinators, Paul and Christie, have been tripping all over themselves to get back on the vaccine bandwagon.

    Not totally sure, but I think you are confusing programs. SSI does not contribute to the deficit or surplus. It is an independent self funded program.

    If you want to reduce the deficit, you need...

    Couple of things.

    Joni Ernst wasn't very good. Too wooden, maybe. Not sure. Not sure the GOP made the best choice with her.

    The tone of things was strange. The Democrats are much more...

    Mike Huckabee has quit his show on Fox. Looks like he wants to run for the GOP presidential nomination. What do you think of his chances?

    JMO, but you will get your wish. The GOP candidate is going to be a "true" conservative. The establishment GOP is not going to be able to sell Jeb to the base.

    From the Borowitz Report in the New Yorker.



    For those of you who haven't guessed already, the Borowitz Report is satire. In this case at least, kinda funny satire.

    FWIW, I heard the same thing on the local Fox radio station here in Indianapolis. The edited tape, the Kill the Cops tape.
