You’re going to have a hard time convincing me that raising wages a few dollars an hour is going to result in massive inflation in an environment where every fast food joint I can think of is highly profitable and introducing new low-price options on a regular basis. On the other hand, I can see [...]
Some pre-South Park action. In Closing: the freaking NSA; more awesome Pope Francis; Captain Morgan; park; fire; minimum wage; medical ethics; iPhone tax; and why we need real immigration reform.
Department of Education: It looks like textbook publishers have decided to call a Texas-sized bluff and print science books that only have science in them. Elsewhere, Arne Duncan has realized that insulting “white suburban moms” might not be a winning strategy. Defiance: Apparently you have to be ready to retire from Congress to actually work [...]

Now here we are a decade later, and the Supremes have struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Now the Federal government is allowed [...]

That shelf that used to have Hostess products is full of knock-off baked goods: Little Debbie; TastyKake, Mrs. Freshly’s; Bimbo Bakeries; even Krispy Kreme. Some of it even [...]
