Paul Ryan Does Christmas in July

Karen Garcia, Sardonicky: This year’s Paul Ryan excrescence, in the form of his poverty plan, is only a slight variation on his usual social Darwinist theme. Since wealth inequality is “in,” and deficit hawkery is “out,” the GOP has to be especially careful in this year’s framing of its inbred sadism.

If you have also wondered why the more you personally grow, change, heal and ascend, the more the mean people seem to crawl all over you and get all up in your business for seemingly NO logical reason-then read Denise’s latest post.
