The Patriotic Millionaires held a half-day conference in DC yesterday morning.
Fox News’ Stuart Varney hated it.
Not that he attended, but he didn’t need to.
He hates socialism — and apparently believes that America in the 1950’s under Eisenhower (when the marginal rate on the best off was 90%) was a socialist country […]
Picking up from yesterday . . .
(“According to a new poll, 55% of Americans favor abolishing the Electoral College. Unfortunately, because of the Electoral College, 55% is less than half.” — Seth Myers)
And here is how we […]
From Commander In Cheat:
You might be thinking, “What does golf have to do with being president? What does it matter that he cheats at it? What’s it got to do with leading the country?”
If you’ll cheat to win at golf, is it that much further to cheat to win an election? […]
Did you see this Army vet’s commentary on CBS Sunday Morning? She makes the case that military service should not be limited to straight white men, as it once was. That our military is stronger (and more American) if it can draw on the talents of qualified black, female, and LGBT Americans, too. The […]
Back when I was writing for magazines, this was the only headline my editors ever really wanted me to address. Sometimes they would put NOW in all caps.
Wednesday, I suggested caution.
Yesterday, Aristides Capital’s Chris Brown included this thought in his monthly investor letter: “The yield curve inverted this month, portending a high-likelihood […]
I don’t know whether he’s underestimating the risks in MNKD shares (on a lark, I bought a few when they dipped to $1.01 a while back; Guru counseled against it).
I do know he’s not overestimating […]
By focusing on corporate tax cuts that have widened inequality yet further instead of on critically needed infrastructure revitalization that would have put people to work at good jobs, Trump has given us the largest budget deficit in history and, with his trade wars and threatened Mexican border shutdown, a possible end to the long […]
Last week I offered, from New York Magazine, Trump Nominates Famous Idiot Stephen Moore to Fed Board.
But Robert Samuelson, writing in the Washington Post, explains that . . .
The real reason that Stephen Moore does not belong on the Federal Reserve Board is not that he is unqualified for the job, […]
Nick Kristof asks: “At a time when American life expectancy is lower than Chile’s and falling, why would we compound the problem by taking away people’s health insurance?”*
Thinking that maybe Americans should have universal health care (like everyone else in the industrialized world), Bill Maher has a New Rule: Stop being so afraid […]
While Trump* calls House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff “pencil neck,” committee Republicans began Thursday’s hearing by joining Trump’s demand that he resign.
If you’ve not already seen his response in its entirety (five minutes), you must.
In oratory and importance, it exceeds even Joseph Welch’s famous 1954 response to Senator Joseph McCarthy. […]
