Lena Dunham brushes off Vogue cover controversy: 'What's the problem?'
Mon Jan 20, 2014
"Comfortable with your body is the new excuse fat people are using to stay fat." One needs an excuse only if one has made a mistake or done something wrong. The fact that you believe an excuse is needed for being fat speaks volumes about you.
Want to get hired? Don't make these blunders
Fri Jan 17, 2014
There may have been a time years ago when an employer had a legitmate fear that a more experienced candidate who accepted a lower wage might quit at the first opportunity, but it's no longer the case. Real wages have been stagnent for many years and for older workers, average compensation has …

Thu Aug 1, 2013
SickOfTheBickering No matter what you think Jackson and Sharpton, they're not exactly major political figures - more of a side show these days. But there are plenty of Republican haters who actually hold office and their views have significant consequences.
Lead investigator: Zimmerman may have exaggerated his injuries
Tue Jul 2, 2013
I find Zimmerman's whole story bizarre. Where was the gun while all this head-banging was supposedly going on? If Martin was the aggressor, why wasn't he slamming Zimmerman's gun hand against the sidewalk instead of his head? On the other hand, if they were fighting over the gun was Martin slamming …

US to deploy more ground-based missile interceptors as North Korea steps up threats
Fri Mar 15, 2013
First the bad news: Many US defensive missiles have not been tested under real-world scenarios and those that were tested under very easy conditions often failed anyway.

GOP tries to block Obama from meeting pledge on US terror trials
Fri Mar 8, 2013
Jason, why would a terrorist need the provocation of trial to bomb a building in NY? There was no trial on 9/11. The reason it hasn't happened since is because the terrorists haven't been confident that they can get away with it.
Strong support continues for minimum wage
Thu Mar 7, 2013
sAyITLiKeItIs: Your explanation assumes that whatever a business charges for a product, customers will still buy it. So if a business wants to make more profit they can just double the price, they don't need a minimum wage increase to do it. Of course they don't because supply and demand still opera …
Fat-shaming may curb obesity, bioethicist says
Thu Jan 24, 2013
When people talk about excuses or rationalizations for being overweight, it simply reveals their bias. Being overweight is not a crime or character flaw, so no excuses or rationalizations are needed. In the US we have a long history of preferring blame over problem solving. Thus we have people who c …
