I've always wondered about that. What the hell were those pics for anyway? To get the wimmen vote?

MattStafford: All budget projects - both left and right - are extremely rosy.


Generally I think Democrat budgets are optimistic, perhaps a bit more so than they should be.

Republican budgets usually assume record breaking rates of growth with no reason for expecting such unprecedented levels other than 'tax cuts'.

What the holy farking hell is wrong with these idiots? If I want Count Chocula's opinion on something, I'll go the the cereal aisle. Although I guess if your budget is based on completely made up crap, you might as well get an imaginary creature to be it's spokesperson.

MyKingdomForYourHorse: Can we just get the GOP their ruby slippers already, they can click em together and go back to 1950


1950 would never work for them. The GOP of that time was progressive and to the left of the current Democratic party.

One day in the next 20 to 50 years a top secret GOP memo will be leaked which will let us know that somewhere around the year 2001, Republicans decided that they were giving the American public too much credit when they figured we pay attention to their shenanigans. The memo will go on to say that there is no longer a need to inject any sort of logic into any argument against Liberalism or for Conservatism. They will have realized that the lie is as good as the truth if repeated enough and said with enough conviction. More importantly, it will note that there are no real reprecussions to getting caught lying about policy. As long as members can keep their homosexuality under wraps, everything else is fair game.

There's rosy, and then there's "Hey guys, the President and Democrat controlled Senate are totally going to pass a bill rolling back one of their signature achievements from the last few years. If they don't we'll just shut down the government! People will totally be ok with the government shutting down in order to avoid getting better health care!"

Dear Republican Party:

"Entitlement" is not a bad word. I'm "entitled" to it, because I have FARKING PAID INTO IT MY WHOLE LIFE. To have elected officials who more or less get healthcare and benefits for life try to make decisions about things I've already bought into is insulting at best, laughable at worst.

Nevermind the fact that for-profit health care is as big a failure as "trickle-down."

Given his district he has to be pedal to the metal on this stuff or else he'll get primaried. Wisconsin Republicans nationally and locally don't really fear the Democrats here; just the people crazier than them.

It's too damn early in the morning for this, but perhaps Ryan ought to consider that if a pony is homeomorphic to an elephant, that budgets have inputs as much as they have outputs. If we've learned anything on the politics tab, it's that there's a sizable faction in Congress for whom the functions of the corresponding orifices are reversed.

Sweat is designed to keep you cool - similar to leaving a hot shower, all of a sudden those warm beads of water are bone-chilling after a few seconds of environmental exposure. A sweat-soaked headband may serve to keep the forehead cool. (Also to keep sweat out of your eyes.)

I learned this from an infomercial where they actually took surface temp readings from a sprinter on a treadmill while wearing a moisture-wicking shirt and a regular t-shirt. Dude got hotter when his sweat was thoughtfully evaporated from its rightful place on his skin.

If only that mean President Obama would just compromise by enacting historically disasterous economic policies which were rejected in the last presidential election. It is clear that the American people elected President Obama on the basis he enacts Mitt Romney's proposed policies while rejecting his own.

They don't honestly expect this to pass. They just want to be able to say they passed a budget proposal in the house, and that the Democrats didn't pass it.

What they are counting on, is for people to not pay attention to WHY it won't pass.

Medicare is for retirees while the ACA deals with everyone that isn't retired.

Beats trusting the guy who wants to turn it over completely to the private sector that is 100% out for profit and then hand you a "voucher" that covers about 1/4 of what you need (and that's if you're relatively healthy).

Given the choice between probably staying solvent past 2030 and getting farked by a private/voucher system, I'll choice the Dems, thanks.

Thanks for that brilliant info-mercial based science.

I work out.  Hats keep you hotter while working out.  Headbands aren't for keeping you cooler, they are for keeping salty sweat from raining down on your eyes. I assure you that the skin on your head keeps enough water to aid in the cooling process just fine without a hat. If anything a tight hat will function something like a wetsuit where you have a thin layer of heated water stuck on your skin and are you are no longer gaining the benefit of increased heat loss from the moisture instead of dry air.

I especially love "rightful place on his skin".  Are you making a religious argument that god intended us to wear cotton t-shirts, or are you making a ridiculous claim that we evolved to wear t-shirts while exercising?


Snarky annoyance aside: go to the gym yourself, don't watch half an an informercial and pretend to be an authority.  Informercials are there to sell you something, not teach you something.
