There was one post yesterday, “Pure Class Warfare, With Extra Contempt:” The Senate version of Trumpcare – the Better Care Reconciliation Act – is out. The substance is terrible: tens of millions of people will experience financial distress if this passes, and tens if not hundreds of thousands will die premature deaths, all for the […](image)

In “Taking On the Frat Boys” Ms. Collins says that the fact that Republican leaders didn’t bother to toss a token woman in their secret bill-writing group tells you something about the insane level of indifference to women’s issues.  Here she is: Everybody seems to hate the Senate health care bill, which was created by 13 […](image)

Oh, gawd.  Today Bobo has inflicted “Mis-Educating the Young” on us.  He takes to his fainting couch, clutching his pearls, and wails a question:  Why don’t schools prepare students for life?  And once again “gemli” from Boston will try to set him straight.  Here, FSM help us, is Bobo: A few months ago I had […](image)

In “Opioids, a Mass Killer We’re Meeting With a Shrug” Mr. Kristof says opioid deaths continue to climb yet G.O.P. plans would reduce help.  Nick, for them I’m sure it’s a feature, not a bug.  Ms. Collins says “You’ve Named Trump’s Worst!” and that all the cabinet members tried, but only one could triumph.  Here’s Mr. Kristof: […](image)

The Moustache of Wisdom asks “Where Did ‘We the People’ Go?”  He says we’re having crises of truth, division and authority.  Frank Effing Bruni, who really should go back to reviewing restaurants, as seen fit to inform us that “After Georgia Election, Democrats Are Demoralized, Again” and that Jon Ossoff’s defeat will test the party’s spirit and […](image)

In “Let’s Not Get Carried Away” Bobo scolds us and says we should be wary of sinking into the politics of scandal. It won’t make us, America, or this administration’s governance any better.  Here’s his POS: I was the op-ed editor at The Wall Street Journal at the peak of the Whitewater scandal. We ran a […](image)

In “Trump Is Girding for a Fight” Mr. Blow says Trump and team are attempting to defame and delegitimize the Russia investigation.  Prof. Krugman considers “Zombies, Vampires and Republicans” and when Trump is just an ignorant bystander.  Here’s Mr. Blow: Special counsel Robert Mueller and his widening investigation seems to be closing in on Donald Trump and […](image)

There was one post yesterday, “The Silence of the Hacks:” The actual text of the Senate version of Trumpcare is still a secret, even from almost all the Senators who are expected to vote for it. But that’s actually a secondary issue: never mind the precise details, what’s the organizing idea? What is the bill […](image)

Oh, gawd…  Bobo has decided to mansplain to us all about “Why Fathers Leave Their Children.”  He stifles a sob and tells us that it’s not because they don’t care.  “SW” from Massachusetts will have a few words for Bobo…  Here’s Bobo mansplaining stuff: Millions of poor children and teenagers grow up without their biological father, […](image)

There was one post yesterday:  “A Finger Exercise On Hyperglobalization:” The days when surging world trade was the big story seem like a long time ago. For one thing, trade has stopped surging, and seems to have plateaued. For another, we have more pressing issues, like the rise of authoritarianism and the attempt to sabotage […](image)
