    Anatole France in Red Lily:

    “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.”

    “Would ObamaCare be more popular if the messaging were better?”

    The issue shouldn’t be whether it gets more popular or not..

    “Are coffee drinkers less likely to kill themselves?”

    Silly study in my opinion.

    -Hmmm…. Interesting analysis. Another reason to drink coffee!

    Not if they get a big cup of coffee first thing in the morning!

    In Berlin, the fines for public sex are means tested ― a normal fine of $198 per incident can be as low as $45 for the unemployed.

    I have an idea, forget about people having sex in public. That doesn’t bother me unless they’re blocking the road or obstructing the sidewalk. Instead, make it a capital offense for tagging a public building with graffiti.

    People simply do not like obamacare. Regardless of messaging, people do not understand/nor think Obamacare is the way to go!
