Now that the presidential race is over, what are you looking forward to most?

free birth control, free retirement, free flood insurance........best not to think too much about how it's free. That's why we pay politicians to do our thinking for us!

Oh I'm also looking forward to getting social security in 40 years. I thought that it was going to run out for my generation, but a deceptively in-the-know coworker said that I was mistaken..they're actually going to be able to "rearrange" the money. What a relief!

Opinion: Republicans can’t deny demography

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.

Opinion: Time to halt the entitlement state

It sounds like you're suggesting that Medicare fraud is somehow not as bad as private insurance fraud, which is insane. Both have negative effects within the industry and to consumers. Fraud in private health insurance mostly affects the health insurance costs of people within that state. But it also affects the costs within the medical care industry on the whole. With Medicare fraud, it costs all of US taxpayers as well as increasing medical care costs. The bigger the fraud, the bigger the cost.

Opinion: Conservatives seeking mythical past

Yeah, getting into the worst deficit ever kind of hampers one's ability to spend. But give him time, I promise he'll do better.

Without a doubt, the finest impression of a political Andy Rooney I've ever seen.

Opinion: America’s social contract is at stake

For those of you who might be wondering "What is this "social contract"? Why have I never seen it before?" Here's a foolproof method for finding one:

You will need-

1. A young virgin
2. A meadow on the edge of a deep forest
3. A golden bridle
4. Some hunters

The virgin must sit beneath a tree in the meadow on the edge of a deep forest and sing softly. If a social contract is nearby, it will come and rest its head on her lap. Then the virgin must place the golden bridle on its head so the hunters can capture it. But if the social contract still doesn't show up, there's always the possibility that the virgin didn't believe strongly enough or maybe it was too cloudy and the social contract wanted to stay in bed. The main thing is to know that it's always somewhere in the forest, majestically posed on a grassy mound, the sun glinting through a clearing. Mysterious. Proud and protective.

Opinion: Voter racism is hard to prove

I was going to look up your assertion about the KKK supporting Romney, then it hit me - who the f cares what the KKK thinks?

Opinion: Voter racism is hard to prove

The amount of racists in the GOP is matched only by the amount in the DFL.

Opinion: Time to halt the entitlement state

Not that it matters, since fraud is fraud...but individuals within businesses try to commit fraud. The business itself does not have a brain and free will.
