What We Missed


Best new tumblr: Lucille and Mitt

New Mexico proposes requiring proof of “forcible rape” for women seeking childcare assistance. The Governor wisely rethinks that idea.

Um, did Mitt Romney seriously wear brownface when he went on Univision?

We need serious labor reforms to solve the problem of over-employment at the top of the labor market and underemployment at the bottom–and ease work-life challenges for women at both ends.

Bill O’Reilly is creepily obsessed with Sandra Fluke.

    Caring for my grandmother lately I’ve been seeing quite a bit of election coverage on Univision, I’m going to take a closer look at Romney next time they run anything.

    This Romney Gaffe is just a huge distraction from the fact, that all those programs make it possible for employers to pay $hitty wages because their employees are subsidized by government programs. Foodstamps should only be for the unemployed. If working people need government assistance, maybe its time to raise minimum wage.

    Our society is a pyramid system, there is always going to be a large number in the lower tier jobs and a smaller number in the upper tier jobs.
