The web is providing a venue for real innovation in comic art and stories.

It is a common misconception that the Constitution protects us from any source of attack on liberty. But that's not true. The Constitution and Bill of Rights only protect us from the government.

I love it when people treat and analyze The Daily Show as if it were a real news program. The fact that this happens is a testament to the quality of The Daily Show's ability to spoof the real thing, and is a condemnation of the real news since it seems unable to compete with a farcical equivalent...

Years ago when I took my first trip to Europe my parents asked me what it was like being in a place where I wasn't protected by the Constitution. At this rate they won't have to leave the US to find out...

There are two primary objections to private accounts in Social Security. Depending on how you spin it, neither really hold water.

Anyone who moves against a person proclaiming their belief (or lack thereof) in good faith is simply un-American.

In a recent post on social security reform I found this nugget in the analysis:
"To bring a little realism to the issue let's assume the taxpayer is an uneducated dock worker at LA -Long Beach Harbor and makes $120,000 a year. That his wife works as an administrative assistant who makes $60,000 a year."
Now I realize that the cost of living, and thus wages, are higher on the coasts than in the bulk of the US. But if uneducated dock workers are pulling down $120k then I think I wasted my time in college.
Recent salary surveys show that people in the IT and computer programming areas - even in LA - don't make anywhere near $120k. The average in LA is closer to $75K.
This means that uneducated dock workers are making an average of $45k more than a computer professional with a four year college degree.
My guess (just a guess mind you) is that the average dock worker doesn't actually pull down $120k. That the "realism" is just a touch less realistic than the author would like us to believe...
