Free to be hungry- a Krugman piece. - Quentin Compson
[quote]The word “freedom” looms large in modern conservative rhetoric. Lobbying groups are given names like FreedomWorks; health reform is denounced not just for its cost but as an assault on, yes, freedom. Oh, and remember when we were supposed to refer to pommes frites as “freedom fries”? The ...

Bad calls that benefited LSU - Quentin Compson
On the topic of Auburn week, I was rewatching the terrible calls against LSU in the 2006 game, and began to think about terrible calls that went LSU's way. In your opinion, what were some clearly bad calls that you, as an honest fan, will admit were bull shite on the side of LSU? ...

These opt out of Obamacare videos are a fail - Quentin Compson
1) If you look at the like/dislike bar, they are having the exact opposite effect of what they were intended to do. 2) I am still struggling to see the point of the videos.

[quote] THE Census Bureau reported yesterday that the poverty rate in America held stable between 2011 and 2012, at about 15 percent. According to the official measure, poverty today is higher than it was in 1973, when it reached a historical low of 11.1 percent. To many, this dismaying fact sugg...

The deficit is dropping like a rock- "supposedly" - Quentin Compson
The deficit was over a trillion dollars for most of Obama's first term, it now all of the sudden appears to be declining fairly rapidly. I'm sure the CBO is making the age old mistake- assuming there will not be reactions to tax increases. [img]http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/ima...

I feel so bad for Michigan State fans - Quentin Compson
They have a championship defense and the worst offense in the country. They are playing south florida, a team that gave up 53 to McNeese, and have yet to score on offense.

On Labor Day 2013, Welfare Pays More Than Minimum-Wage Work In 35 States - Quentin Compson
[quote]Since 2009, the Fair Labor Standards Act has dictated that the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Some people think that’s too low; others think it’s too high. But it turns out that, in 35 states, it’s a better deal not to work—and instead, to take advantage of federal welfare programs—th...

Is there a more regressive tax than a sales tax? - Quentin Compson
NC recently decided to put forward a plan to demolish the income tax, which is a good thing, in my opinion. However, the plan also includes increasing the sales taxes. Sales taxes disproportionally hurt the poor because they tend to consume 100% of their income. Economic growth alone would probably ...
