Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

SCOTUS Versus The Governors

As the Supreme Court considers invoking a bizarre and twisted interpretation of American law to strip away the Obamacare subsidies, more and more GOP governors are warming up to the idea of expanding Medicaid in their states.  Even freaking Texas is considering it.  Wyoming really wants it.

We were discussing the Pragmatists in class today as a uniquely American philosophical movement.  Does it work?

And yet one party increasingly is divorcing itself - at least at the Congressional and Judicial level - from this important current in American thought.
