Really...
You might like to get answers to these questions. You might think the American public deserves answers to these questions before November 6th. But you won't get them anyway: Governor Romney, what tax loopholes will you propose closing to make up for the tax cuts on the rich that are part of your economic plan? Your Medicare plan is based on Paul Ryan's and relies on competitive bidding to bring down costs. But what if the bids all come in above ...

Paul Waldman has done a lot of academic research on political ads. In fact, he says, he has personally watched "every single presidential general election campaign ad ever aired since the first ones in 1952." So what does he think of Mitt Romney's new ad that claims President Obama has a plan for "dropping work requirements" for welfare? "Under Obama's plan," says the narrator, "you wouldn't have to work and wouldn't have to train for a job. They...

So, Grover Norquist thinks it is oh so American to renounce your citizenship. I’m serious. Chuck Schumer and Bob Casey introduced legislation last week that would penalize Americans who renounce their citizenship to evade taxes. Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, had this to say: “I think Schumer can probably find the legislation to do this. It existed in Germany in the 1930s and Rhodesia in the ’70s and in South Africa a...

Oh, lookie here what Deb found for us. Romney saying it’s not a tax but an “assessment.” One day that poor man is going to tie his tongue in a knot and choke on his chokes.

Money trails to nowhere.
Tax-exempt organizations are a great way to funnel money into politics. No disclosure necessary.

Introduction

Where I’m From by Gary Boyd

I am from books by the dozen that started me dreaming, from Lava Soap and bare feet in summer always dirty.

I am from the Deep South, coastal plains and high clouds; sky as big as the whole of existence; sun and heat, humidity and rain (sometimes at the same time).

I am from the oak, the broad shade of summer; large comforting limbs for imaginary castles: height in a world that lacked hills.

I am from potato soup and corn bread, from Linville’s and Sewell’s and Pearson’s.

I am from the men of shiny skulls and mother hens who ruled the roost.
From Indian Princesses and Sooners (they thought).

I am from Baptist traditions with new age tendencies. Looking to the Far East for a guiding set of principles I am pulled in different ways.

I’m from four generations of Texans coming from North Carolina via many routes, pinto beans and bacon and biscuits.

From the great-grandmother who died too young, the grandfather who didn’t mind the questions I chattered, and the father who was always gone.

I am from the pictures my mother keeps safe, the history I have tracked down in courthouse basements and now pass on to the cousins who care, the old bibles hiding in sock drawers that listed those who came before me who I never knew.
