Rupert Murdoch would do anything to stop Trump except anything - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... Ruperts small glimmers of conscience and wish he could duck responsibility if anything makes him more evil. ... According to current American evangelical thinking, Hitler could be relaxing right alongside Jesus if, an instant before he killed himself, he saiI accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior." That's it.That's all it takes to get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Alternatively, someone who spends their entire life feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, housing the homeless, healing the sick, and generally loving their neighbor as themself is going straight to the Lake of Fire because without having uttered the Magic Phrase, their soul is condemned. So the moral of the story as told by moral Christians (and their Moral Majority) is that there is absolutely no need to live a moral life in any way because no matter what sins you commit, no matter how shitty and evil a person you are, just saying I accept Jesus Christ as my Personal Savior absolves you of everything!

Eventually, the tax cuts are projected to grow to more than 100 percent of the increase.

The American Nations and Life Expectancy - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... The underlying theory here is that there are now about nine to eleven or so distinct American nations, regionally speaking, that dont track either state borders or census definitions of larger regions, and that the long-term cultural and political patterns in these different micro-nations explain much of the striking differences in public health to be found among them, even when one controls for such powerful variables as wealth and race/ethnicity ... And people in the Left Coasts poorest quartile of counties live 2.4 years longer than those in the richest quartile counties in the Deep South ... The larger point here is that the current fracturing of America follows very complicated geographical lines, that dont lend themselves very readily to any sort of amicable divorce, as increasingly tempting as such a response is becoming to contemporary political and cultural polarization.
