    Obama Complains About Trump Taking Credit for Strong Economy

    Why am I not surprised that BHO would be saying this? The amazing part is that the American economy is doing this in the face of the Federal Reserve nudging up interest rates after artificially holding them to historically low levels to prop up a moribund economy during King O's reign.

    Cynthia Nixon on getting single-payer health care in New York: 'Pass it and then figure out how to fund it'

    Steross , since you have worked in both Australia and the US, how do the medical malpractice insurance rates compare? Also, are Australians more, the same, or less litigious when it comes to medical malpractice? I assume Australia's court system is like England's; that is, in private suits the...

    Mob Rule

    “'This is the most incomplete, most partisan, least transparent vetting for any Supreme Court nominee I have ever seen,' Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy said." I wonder how he felt about that health care bill that had to be passed before we could find out what was in it? Oh, that's...

    Mob Rule

    "California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, in her opening remarks, expressed concern over how Kavanaugh would rule on cases involving abortion and guns..." How about that? There really is a gun test and an abortion test to be on the SC!!!

    Good catch on the Steely Dan reference. Of course, now I’ve got that song stuck in my head.

    How Can I Cure My White Guilt?

    There is a black man, originally from Ethiopia, in my department at work. When I had to file a diversity (multiculturalism) report at work, I reported that he is African-American. HR told me I was wrong; that he cannot be Africa-American because he isn’t originally from the U.S. Wrap your...

    Feinstein employee for 20 years was a China spy

    This probably won’t hurt her in her traditional voter strongholds of the Bay Area; east L.A., and the Tijuana —Mexicali corridor.

    Trump admin mulling changes to Capital Gains taxes

    Actually, the tax brackets for ordinary income are inflation indexed and have been for at least several decades. Translation: 401Ks, 403Bs, and so on are taxed at inflation adjusted rates.

    Is Claire McCaskill done in Missouri?

    She was done the last time she ran until her Republican opponent (forgot his name but he was a Congressman from eastern Missouri) said something incredibly stupid about rape. An empty shirt who kept his/her/its/their mouth(s) shut would have beaten her that time. Think Obamacare. I’m amazed...

    The most liberal and conservative jobs in America

    I would have guessed that the percentage of economists who are conservative would have been much higher than shown here, especially because I know lots of conservative economists, but I don't know very many economists who are socialists. I do, however, know people who claim to be...

    Tweet of the Day

    "A" SC justice didn't actually make a big difference in Brown v. Board since it was a unanimous 9 to 0 outcome. I find it rather amusing that I entered a rural, conservative public school which had been fully integrated prior to Brown v. Board; while liberal Berkeley wasn't fully integrated...
