Addicting Info – Liberals Are About To Outnumber Conservatives On Social Issues (CHART)

"For years, conservatives have been pushing a brutal social agenda that would outlaw homosexuality, ban abortion without exceptions, allow racism and discrimination against others, make the Bible the law of the land, and punish the poor. But it looks like we know why conservatives are so desperate to create their dream world."

5 Scientific, Peer-Reviewed Studies That Prove Republicans Are Just Stupid

'Five questions were asked, and those who watch Fox News exclusively got
1.04 correct, on average
. Individuals watching MSNBC, on the other hand,
got 1.26. NPR listeners? They got an impressive 1.51. The Daily Show?
Surely a “fake news” program couldn’t make you more informed than “the
most watched cable news channel in America.” '

Major Study On Marriage Equality Was A Fraud | ThinkProgress

<sigh> I hate it when our side cheats. Well, actually, I only hate
when our side gets caught. :)  That said, either we're more honest or
more clever and twisted than the conservatives, since every other study
they drag out turns out to be fake or flawed. This is the first one of
ours in recent memory (actually, in any memory, but I AM getting old!)
that had to be walked back. I'm sure there are others, but they don't
spring to mind.

Finally: Big Banks Plead Guilty To Criminally Rigging Markets For Profits, Fined $5.6 Billion |

$5.6billion is what? Maybe a week's worth of profits? We need to amend
the legal system so that the fine is dependent on the net worth and/or
income (actual income, not taxable!) of the offender. And some crimes
should be hit with penalties that wipe out the company. If nothing else,
it will make shareholders, which these days are primarily other big
financial companies (mutual funds, ETFs, hedge funds, etc) behave more
actively in overseeeing their investments. There's way too much go along
to get along among boards and share holders and management. If the JD
can make that investment worthless, then they might slightly more
invested (npi) in seeing to that their EMPLOYESS  (which is what
management is!!!!) don't break every fucking law in the books chasing
that one additional penny (or billions of pennies!!!) Wipe somebody out
and see the rest start to behave. It's what we do with normal citizens;
since, corporations are people too (thanks Supreme Court!) then we need
to treat them lick the repeat offending citizens that they are!

LOL The Star-Ledger answered my question of yesterday. They sum it up succinctly:

    “Now we may have our answer: The man has lost touch with reality.”
Asked and answered.

Misdirection and sleight of hand are YOUR gig? Well, he'll think of something, I'm sure. So, northing for Hillary to do. Try yelling Benghazi as often and as loudly as Fox Noise will let you. Altho, honestly, even they've looked a little tired of that gambit.
