Issue-driven, and good-looking, too! What a package!

Actually, the president did offer a budget that he worked out with Boehner, but the House crushed it. So, actually, that isn't more than you can say, LOL.

Ryan fought to kill Simpson-Bowles. Why bring that red herring up in his defense?

Doctors getting sued is a good point - it has made them test junkies. The number of CT scans, MRIs, and every other kind of expensive test prescribed these days far outstrips any rational expectation. You can't sue the doctor for prescribing a CT scan, but it's easy to make a case that some rare underlying (and unrelated) malady might have been spotted it you had had your head scanned after you broke your toe.
Big money for the hospitals, and CYA for the doctors.

Not many people can look that good in a regular photo, much less a mug shot.

BFD. I think that without experiencing the adrenaline overdose and shear sense of relief at surviving the firefight, none of us can understand this rather harmless gesture.
Now we have people judging 20 year-old Marines, who've just made it through another life-or-death struggle, knowing full well they may be killed in the next one, giving vent to emotions they can hardly contain?
Give these guys a break.

For Hank: A Cuban emigre, on requesting entry to the U.S., is asked to use the colors Green, Pink, and Yellow in a sentence. After some thought, he replies: "The phone Green, so I Pink it up and say 'Yellow?'"
White people live to work. Latinos work to live. That is a Latino saying. If you grow up in a Latino family and own a body shop, you are macho. Your white friend, who may be a physicist, is a celebrity when you bring him around. If you, as a Latino, study physics, you're a freak.
The Latino people have the same sense of "place" that lower class whites had for centuries. It takes time to change, but it's happening.

Greg Mohr, you are a little off here. Armandirez is a criminally negligent drunk driver, and hence a public menace.
Switching price tags? Really? That's like excusing your child for being a serial rapist, since the neighbor's kid looked at Hustler magazine.
The fact is, right-wing nut-jobs more often bash gays while they live in the closet, bash marijuana while they drive drunk, condemn marital infidelity while they have affairs, and take bribes while they preach fiscal responsibility. What are we supposed to think?
