WTF: Medicare = Slavery?

That’s the curious formulation of Tea Party icon Senator Rand Paul – an intellectually dishonest and deeply unserious assertion of libertarian dogma that Lawrence O’Donnell quite brilliantly deconstructed on his program last week…

Unfortunately, this sort of depraved nonsense is the outcome of the radical libertarian argument carried to its logical extreme… a dialectic not based on facts or evidence, but one that is hypothetically predicated on a dystopian hellscape of the imagination.

Dumping on Trump

Since The Donald announced that he was “seriously thinking” about running for President of the United States, and more particularly since he started breathing new life into the ridiculous “birther” movement, Lawrence O’Donnell at the The Last Word has had a field day skewering the putative billionaire and what Larry vehemently contends is nothing but a shameless publicity stunt.

Last night’s segment may be the best one to date ripping Trump’s credibility (if one can call it that) to shreds.

As entertaining as it would be if Trump did actually run (which I too, seriously doubt), it’s a pretty sad commentary on the catastrophic level of stupefying idiocy that’s evidently rampant within the Republican base that this arrogant, clueless prick is currently leading or coming a strong second in polls amongst various contenders for the G.O.P. nomination.
