Republicans claim Congress meant to withhold Obamacare subsidies, but Olympia Snowe says that's nonsense

How come the Republicans who are always screaming, BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI, never said a word about this?

Interesting perspective. Why is Pakistan more legitimate than Israel?

Wonderful. 
This is an exclusive, abridged excerpt from my book, Work Rules!A Googler named Todd Carlisle once said the ultimate recruiting slogan would be “work at Google and live longer.” He wasn’t joking.For years we’d been testing ways to improve the quantity and quality of Googlers’ lives. And because we provide free meals and snacks to Googlers, we found ourselves in a unique position to test whether insights from academic research would apply in the r...

It’s a good time to be a pessimist. ISIS, Crimea, Donetsk, Gaza, Burma, Ebola, school shootings, campus rapes, wife-beating athletes, lethal cops—who can avoid the feeling that things fall apart, the center cannot hold? Last year Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified before a Senate committee...

About time. More importantly they pleaded guilty instead of just escaping with a fine which clearly has no impact on these corrupt banks.
Now time to see some of the culprits in jail. +Preet Bharara - needed here.

Fascinating. Exactly my thoughts.
 
You Americans Have No Idea Just How Good You Have It With Obama

Many of us Canadians are confused by the U.S. midterm elections. Consider, right now in America, corporate profits are at record highs, the country's adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, U.S. gross national product growth is the best of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. The dollar is at its strongest levels in years, the stock market is near record highs, gasoline prices are falling, there's no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S. oil imports are declining, U.S. oil production is rapidly increasing, the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money.

America is leading the world once again and respected internationally — in sharp contrast to the Bush years. Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq and killed Osama bin Laden.

So, Americans vote for the party that got you into the mess that Obama just dug you out of? This defies reason.

When you are done with Obama, could you send him our way?

Rand Paul Calls The Shrub's Lie  to Topple Saddam Hussein a Mistake...

"Sen. Rand Paul, a Republican candidate for president, said today in front of an audience of Orthodox Jews that it was a “mistake” to topple Saddam Hussein in Iraq and later wage war in Libya.

“All the way back to the Iraq War, I think it was a mistake to topple [Saddam] Hussein. Hussein was the bulwark against Iran. The Sunnis didn’t like the Shiites, now Iraq is a vassal state for Iran,” Mr. Paul, the libertarian-leaning Kentucky senator, said. “I’m worried [Iran] is twice as strong as it was before the Iraq War.”

Fascinating. Always suspected this and of course the Citizens United ruling has made matters significantly worse.

Scary assessment here. Hillary was right about ISI and Pakistan army encouraging snakes in their backyard. First posted by my friend.

Food quality is awesome. However, ambiance is poor. Great place for a take out. Awesome roti and chapatis and the food is not greasy.

Nathan came yesterday to my home to help me with the notary signatures I needed. The sheer convenience of having the notary come to my place instead of me having to go out was awesome. Nathan was meticulous and efficient in his work. He checked my id, looked for validation as to why the names were slightly different in the forms versus my driver's license, cross checked with my passport and still was done in ablout 5 minutes. What would have otherwise taken me an hour or so, if I had to go out, stand in line, and get this done, was done in 5 minutes without me having to step out of the house. Nathan was courteous and totally professional. The cost of his services are also very modest. I would recommend Nathan to everyone. -Rama
