The Bill Comes Due

Even relatively new places are starting to experience the sticker shock of repair costs for infrastructure.

Gotta pay somehow.

America's Worst Humans

Mike Pence.

And Pay Off My Student Loan And Save For A Downpayment

Such helpful advice.
People who start early can get away with saving a tiny portion of their pay and still have a decent chance at having enough money in retirement (in other words, their money won’t run out before they die). But those who put it off need to save dramatically more to catch up.

Nap Time

Seems like several young children need a time out.

Morning Thread

Here's a link to Echidne's post on IS and Women: Part 3: The Western Female IS Militants. I highly recommend you bookmark it and read it when you have some time to think it over. As usual, important stuff that needs to be examined.

Saturday Night

Rock on.

Deep State

This is from the interview of GG, Poitras, and Snowden conducted by David Carr.

Afternoon Thread

Still cold.

We Did That

I do think that absent liberal bloggers, and the general netroots associated movement at the time, they would have destroyed Social Security.

So, one victory at least.

Shit Is Fucked Up And Bullshit

I hate everybody.

Nashville prosecutors have made sterilization of women part of plea negotiations at least four times in the past five years, and the district attorney has banned his staff from using the invasive surgery as a bargaining chip after the latest case.

Morning Thread

The Atlantic has a short bio up of Harry Reid. Some interesting tidbits.

Everybody's Working For

The weekend.

Shit Is Fucked Up And Bullshit

One of the America Is Awesome stories I remember from high school is the "we don't have debtors' prisons!" story.

But we do.

The Retirement Crisis

At least the Dems have been moving in the right direction...


This is a charming tale.
Phone calls, emails and Facebook messages were sent to us here, at WVVA by parents concerned for their children's safety.

People reported seeing a man and woman traveling through McDowell County this week, snapping photographs as they drove through each town. And those people wanted to know why.

"I received a call that there was a suspicious vehicle, a light brown Volvo station wagon, Massachusetts plate, and there was a male and female in the Raysal area taking pictures of some children," says Chief Deputy, Roger Deel.

Jennifer Adkins, the mother of three kids, and a resident of Raysal, is the one who contacted Chief Deputy Deel. She also confronted the photographers, with a group of others.


Just Add Bombs

Maybe we should stop helping people to kill each other?

Just a thought.

Finally, it's Friday!
