I understand getting a few fundraising emails a week from political campaigns.  But half a dozen per day?  Enough already, Marco!

In 2013, Elizabeth was on unemployment insurance.  In 2014, she got a job.  Result?  Our income decreased by $10,000, but our taxes went up by $6000.  That's not even counting the $20,000 a year we have to pay for child care so Elizabeth can work.

Is it any wonder that people are leaving the work force?  It's not as if the tax system encourages working any more.

Also, Massachusetts limits the number of children you can take deductions for to 2?  I bet they still provide welfare for more than 2 kids if you don't work.

+Dean H. Cross  I agree there's a potential for issues, but I think at a state level, sales taxes tend to be less gameable than income taxes.  At least it wouldn't be worse than the present system, and it might be a fair bit better.

A liberal starts realizing that today's left is not liberal.  (In the linked article, not the forwarded post)
 
The liberal author of this is under the misconception that the left in America is liberal rather than leftist. If she wants to understand the left, she should read "Darkness at Noon" or "1984". The left is by its nature totalitarian and is implementing a slow-moving Cultural Revolution. Facts are 100% irrelevant. The party line is dictated by the left and the media is all that matters.
" I am struggling to come to terms with this new reality wherein sticking to an objective view of the facts is considered a conservative trait. The campus left’s complete unwillingness to adjust their opinions of these cases to fit with the facts shows a thought process completely devoid of reason. Facts are apolitical. "
I have some confessions to make: I am a liberal. I am pro-choice. I favor the legalization of gay marriage and marijuana. Given supreme authority, I would drastically cut our military budget and us...

Interesting analysis of why Likud won the plurality in the recent Israeli election.  While the opposition ran on domestic issues, the reality is that Likud's free market policies have helped the Israeli economy substantially.

Under Netanyahu, Likud cut the government's share of the economy below half, moving away from socialism.  However, Likud policies also promoted the free market in the private economy, for example massively cutting cellular telephony prices by breaking a business monopoly.

Moshe Kahlon was the communications minister responsible for breaking the cellular monopoly.  Likud has now asked him to serve as finance minister so he can implement similar free market policies across more of the economy.

The instructions for the supposedly ultra simple 1040EZ are 43 pages long?  Seriously?

Not that I get to use 1040EZ - just helping someone with it.

"The NSA is willing to go frighteningly far for your secrets, but at least one hardware manufacturer is willing to go further. A Cisco executive just said his company will ship its networking equipment to vacant addresses to avoid NSA interception."

Recall that we now know the NSA routinely intercepts Cisco equipment and modifies the OS.  Also recall that for all practical purposes, Cisco owns the Internet.  Virtually the entire infrastructure of the Internet -- worldwide -- rests on Cisco routers.
The NSA is willing to go frighteningly far for your secrets, but at least one hardware manufacturer is willing to go further. A Cisco executive just said his company will ship its networking equipment to vacant addresses to avoid NSA interception. Clever idea.

Apparently human vegans are not the only vegans that cheat on their diet.

http://io9.com/field-cameras-catch-deer-eating-birds-wait-why-do-deer-1689440870
Deer aren't the slim, graceful vegans we thought they were. Scientists using field cameras have caught deer preying on nestling song birds. And it's not just deer. Herbivores the world over may be supplementing their diets.

Herbivores eat meat. Obligate carnivores eats plants. On vegans are ideologues.

The claim that there are huge numbers of defensive uses of guns each year in the United States has been repeatedly confirmed, and remains one of the most consistently supported assertions in the guns-violence research area.

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/02/defensive-gun-ownership-gary-kleck-response-115082.html
It’s deja vu all over again. In a recent Politico Magazine article, Evan DeFillipis and Devin Hughes resuscitate criticisms of a survey on defensive gun use that I conducted with my colleague Marc Gertz way back in 1993—the National Self-Defense Survey (NSDS). The authors repeat, item for item, speculative criticisms floated by a man named...
