    So why are petroleum companies reporting yearly-record profits each quarter?

    OBTW, several restaurants in Indianapolis, Bloomington, West Layfayette, have zero problems with staffing, once they announced they’ll be paying a full $15/hr wage with no tipping.

    I’d like to see just how much effect outfits like “Offerpad” or “BenBuysHouses” have on homelessness.

    Here in Indianapolis, there are several Section 8 apartment complexes that are plain, old-fashioned slums, because the owners are anonymous, out-of-state organizations that collect rent but don’t pay utilities or do any maintenance.

    FYI, Indiana laws are set up by decades of corporatist Republican legislatures to protect said organizations.

    Oooh, someone bought the “Laffer Curve” nonsense.

    In over 40 years of observation, “trickle-down” has been demonstrated to not work.

    It should be pointed out that when marginal tax rates were in the 80-90% range, we built the interstate highway system, we built public schools (elementary through undergraduate!), and we went to the moon.

    And don’t forget the Fugitive Slave Law, which required sheriffs in free states to arrest children, women, and men trying to escape and return them to their owners.

    For some reason, the Artificial Nanny wouldn’t let me quote a speech by the Vice President of the Confederate States of America, extolling why those states went their own way. (Hint for the Quiz: slavery.)

    In fact, when one state representative put forward an amendment to put the question to a non-binding ballot, this coming fall, the response from the Republicans was, “we aren’t an initiative state.”

    fusilier, who always feels compelled to point out that J. Danforth Quayle was lots nicer than Murphy Brown said.

    My FIL drove landing craft in the Pacific. He was told to expect up to 75% casualties in an invasion of japan.

    My Dad was older, unmarried, and tried to enlist three separate times, but was deferred because he was in a “vital civilian occupation,” as a mechanical engineer. He was told to report for induction August 15th, in preparation for the invasion. (Obviously cancelled.)
