Frackers won't drink water with their own secret cocktail of chemicals in it, but they want you to.

thanks, +FreakOutNation 
 
Why won't these pro-frackers accept this generous farmer's offer to drink water tainted by fracking? Strange, HUH?
A local farmer appeared before a Nebraska Oil & Gas Conservation committee hearing and generously offered the pro-fracking members of the board a scrumptious glass of water which he mixed with sludgy water tainted by fracking. Frack. The pro-frackers declined the farmers kind offer.

Republicans love to use Obamacare

They just don't want you to have access to it.

In fact, they love it so much they're willing to shut down the government and cost taxpayers 24 billion dollars to keep you from getting it.

thanks, +Valkyrie 
 
Hypocritical Republican lawmakers like Ted Cruz could have gone for a "private market" solution, but instead they chose to let you subsidize their healthcare via Obamacare.

The nature of republican anger

As a psychologist, I really ought to understand how this illness comes to be. And how to fix it. (But I don't. Sorry, guys.)

Indeed, +Bob Calder, studying such people may help us not only to understand the differences but also to understand how to make inroads with them.

Umm... but... doesn't he?...

Oh, right. No, he wouldn't appreciate the irony. He's an idiot. And, of course, a hypocrite.

Hybrid vigor applies to cooking as well as mating: Why Indian food is so delicious
Indian food is something of an anomaly, but not for the reasons you might think.

Quoting +Ole Olson, Real morality is what you do when nobody's looking

If Robertson thinks people need the threat of "heaven" and "hell" to tell them what's moral, he's undoubtedly up to no good at all.

Hell, he's up to no good when people are looking. I shudder to think what he does when they aren't.

Thanks, Ole.
 
Phil Robertson Hypothesizes About Atheist Family Getting Raped And Killed

This yuppie fauxbilly is of course completely wrong here. Morality does not stem from the promise of an eternal reward or punishment.  I would argue that any true morality is done outside the basis of whether one will be rewarded or punished for it. Real morality is what you do when nobody is looking.

Tax sanity

If Wall Street can afford $1.5 million per day to control the government, then they can afford to pay taxes.

Think of what the nation could do with that kind of money: Infrastructure, education, healthcare... we could almost be a civilization.

Instead, they spend it to pay politicians to ensure they won't have to spend it.

thanks, +Valkyrie 
 
Wall Street can spend $1.5 million a day to influence Congress, they can afford the tax. Time to put things right, America.

Knowing their mindset +John Hummel​​, imagine what they must get in return if they're willing to spend that much.
