Big GOP Plan: Abortion Humor to rope in youngsters,
dublin hillz says
Is it really that difficult to use protection so as not to end up in a situation where abortion even needs to be contemplated? Pendejos/jas!
Condoms being 98% effective implies (.98 ^ 365 probability) that a young randy couple having sex every day are just 0.063% likely to avoid pregnancy each year.

Who benefits most from your 401k,
With historic market returns, no startup liquidity event, and Social Security becoming means tested I'll still be able to retire without changing my cash flow by age 68 and likely pay no 9.3% California state tax on the money I run through my 401k (I can leave after I switch from working to spending my balance).

Doctors created doctor shortage,
All business lobby the government to ensure that competition is limited or eliminated. That's the inevitable state of capitalism.
It's the inevitable approach
1. Where politicians gain office through first-past-the-post elections in geographically defined districts which in turn produces two parties nearly alike with no opportunity for anything disruptive to gain an incremental foothold.
2. Where elected positions pay a small fraction of private industry for individuals with similar backgrounds, cost a lot more to land than they pay, and we have free speech. The average successful senate campaign runs $10.5M or $1.7M per year for a job which pays just $174K. The only way that arithmetic works is when some one else is getting a little quid pro quo and you can't work around the problem with campaign finance reform due to free speech issues.
Time to replace our republic with a democracy.
Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner. While fine for wolves such situations don't work well for sheep.
I think America would be a lot worse off if all the rest of us could vote to own the poor.
It also wouldn't change anything. The average American's opinions come from the 34 hours of TV he watches each week and that leaves plenty of room for the shows' sponsors to get him voting their way.
