One-liners

Megan moves.

I don't know enough about rent-to-own to say whether it is ever, or never, a good idea.
Then why did you write the useless post?

Rubin is one of the few icons of Wall Street who hasn't been stained with the fallout from the financial crisis--Republicans don't want to blame capitalist institutions, and Democrats don't want to imply that St. Robert of Clinton might not have miraculous economic healing powers
What are you, a twelve-year-old with a superiority complex and subscription to The National Review?

I have an iPhone.
What's the over/under on the first government attempt to shut this down?

What's the over/under on you sounding like a Liberal Fascism groupie?

testing the waters for popularity rather than competence.

Concern troll.

But we'll undoubtedly get their mildly manic cousins: minimum wage laws, stiffer unionization rules, and heavier corporate taxes, on the theory that if demand for something is falling, the best way to fix the problem is to make it more expensive.

Yes, God forbid we reverse the trend that got us into this mess, and try to prevent the entire country from sinking.

Amazingly, it doesn't bother her that she is declaring, in post after post, that she has no idea what is going on. All she knows is that regulation and unions are bad, and bankers are good.
