  1. Kisses!!!

  2. So none of Cavanaugh’s made the top 5?
    Is Tim’s work classified as something other than “posts”?

    1. How are these things measured?

      Is “top” an arbitrary category?

  3. It’s amusing that you loonies think you’re going to convince people that the social safety net is a terrible thing. There are enough ignoramuses out there to form the Tea Party, but not enough to actually turn the clock back. Universal health care is coming, and Social Security is never going away. Put your stupid fucking right-wing ideology where your heads are–up your fat asses.

    1. So if there aren’t enough of us to “turn the clock back” you can go back to doing whatever you did before annoying the rest of us here in our
      futile pursuit of individual liberty.

      1. I admire your frankly acknowledging that you’re an ignoramus. How many of you do you think there are?


    3. How about a safety net that actually helps poor people, is not the most expensive one possible, does not put us trillions in debt, is sustainable longer then 20 years, and does not create perverse incentives.

      Hell if you could make a safety net that even does one of those things you would be light years ahead of what we have now.

  4. Thanks for informing me of what I already knew, snookums

  5. What the hell happened to Tims’s “I like Beck” story.

    It got over 500 comments and only 400 of them were “hmm” arguing with himself.
