Here’s a fun game! Who said it? Hitler or Falwell?
Are you forgetful? (What? Who said that? Where am I?) Here’s 10 things you can do to keep your memory strong.
Two Reps, Ryan (D-Ohio) and Schakowsky (D-Ill.), are trying to live for a week on $21 worth of food stamps, the average amount received by people on federal assistance. Guess what? It’s hard. There are a lot of really valid arguments about the danger of the welfare state and the cracks (or gaping maws) in our system, and I honestly don’t know where I stand on the debate, but it is really refreshing to see 2 lawmakers actually step in and see what it is like for the people depending on this to live. If more of them would do this, I think you’d see more lawmakers actually trying to solve this problem.
I’m a big John Edwards supporter, and I think the work he has done for the poor is outstanding and brave, so it sticks in my craw when people harass him for being rich. They call him a hypocrite for living in a big house and getting expensive haircuts, which seems like the most ridiculous argument in the world to me. I’m not alone!
So, would it be okay if you had a limousine but decided to keep all your money for yourself and run the poor over with your limo? Then, I guess you wouldn’t a hypocrite, you’d just be an asshole.
