No, not really. But that’s what’s on the ballot in Mississippi. Also don’t forget that the people who want most to get rid of Roe v Wade and insert themselves into the bedroom, the doctor’s office, etc… the ones who want to tell a woman what to do with their personal life… those ones have R’s after their names. Republicans hate you and your choices.

youngbrokeawesome: A lot of people aren’t taking advantage of the current program that adjusts student loan payments to income. Check out the user friendly site on Income Based Repayment. And yet I have clients who are unemployed and in default because they didn’t know about this program or unemployment… I’m getting wonky with this one, but if you’re a student currently or...
Dear Herman (Cain), If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument. Very sincerely yours, Dan Savage

The amount of student loans taken out last year crossed the $100 billion mark for the first time and total loans outstanding will exceed $1 trillion for the first time this year. Americans now owe more on student loans than on credit cards, reports the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. *That’s a “T” by the way. Trillion. One thousand billion.

Tax Flight Is a Myth →
This is a little bit wonky, but what the hell, right? Often, opponents of tax increases on wealthy people (businesses) claim that those tax increases will cause businesses to flee the state in which they are enacted. The above study shows this claim to be a myth. However, it is true some businesses do move, not enough do to counteract the revenue created by the tax increases. If you’re...

youngbrokeawesome: As far as I’m concerned, a system that only works 1% doesn’t work at all. If a dishwasher only washes 1% of the dishes or a lawnmower only cuts 1% of the grass, we call that “broken.” After quitting my job last summer, I decided to drop in on some old friends in Barcelona. While agonizing…

A quote from President Roosevelt
The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any other controlling private power. - FDR
