Jeff Shesol on #KingvBurwell: “Increasingly, the conservatives’ view seems to be that every crackpot idea—if developed by right-thinking crackpots—deserves its day in court.”
This challenge to the Affordable Care Act has an ersatz, inorganic quality, like something cooked up in a lab. That’s because it was.

can you depict a consolidated democracy where gossip stood in proxy for a reasoned system of Checks-and-Balances as opposed to actual enfranchisement and the Academy of Science and Knowledge?

The operative question here may be what Netflix wants rather than what a well-formed story calls for. I had been hoping for a nice, rounded, three-part structure, in which Season 3 traced Frank Underwood's fall from power. Given that American TV rarely if ever shuts down a popular series (as Ian Crouch points out), I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that my hope didn't pan out. But I am disappointed. Netflix, like subscription-based cable channels such as HBO, doesn't have to satisfy advertisers; it can keep alive a show that has a small audience, and it can just as well force a conclusion on a show with a large following.

This strikes me as a fairly clever reference to the old "Spiro Agnew's Library" joke from decades ago.

+Audrey Patton Really? Women fight women all the time. It just hasn't been televised until now. It's been hidden. Your statement is like someone claiming that Muslims don't rape because women are hidden from view. Muslims rape. Women fight.

High Profile. Bibi Netanyahu should make mention of Putin as Iran and Syria' ally. We are all just on the same side against the bad guys and US interests are the same as Israel's. Palest-Who-ians? 1967 borders?! Thats like only what we carefully slipped out of agreeing to when we were sinking your flagged vessel, killing your sailors, strafing their life boats and never admitting anything beyond a tragic accident had occurred. Also developing nukes courtesy of Zalman Sharpiro and his stealing of US nuke secrets and technology through his ZOA, and the lobby that better became known as AIPAC. An agency that continually refused to register as a lobbying firm belonging to a FOREIGN AGENCY and one the Kennedy brothers both the President and the AG were not settling for. Less.... ALong with opening of Dimona Nuclear facilities being opened to US, UN, and IAEA inspectors. The pressure and JFK's anger forced David Ben Gurion to resign and through mossad avenues and the lines that run through Permadex and Clay Shaw as well as Ken Angleton, an insiders inside man, help from Meyer Lansky and Sam Giancanna, with French Connection Corsican Snipers on the grassy Knoll and one in the sewer that delvered the fatal shot all killed JFK.

It is how the cookie crumbles amongst any one or number of these crumbles. It is politics and no different than Cassius, Brutus, The Senate and Caesar. This is such a casual scratch of the surface. Im merely illustrating a fact. Politics makes for power. Fall short in getting more and youre dead.
