If You Hate Taxes . . . Found at the excellent blog What Would Jack Do?: If you’re a conservative who hates taxes, please do the following. The fact is, we pay for the lifestyle we expect. Without taxes, our lifestyles would be totally different and much harder. The Surprising Realities Behind What Motivates Us in Illustrated Form -... @Blueluck: Very true - I've seen other countries where people leave their family in another country to go find work, and then to manual labor for extremely cheap just to be able to send it all home to their family. I guess that could be interpreted as their purpose, but the work is not purposeful in and of itself.

Norway’s Greatest Vulnerability Is Also Its Greatest Strength The unspeakable horror of this weekend’s massacre in Norway is exaggerated exponentially by terrorist Anders Breivik’s abuse of one of civil society’s most distinctive features: the trust that the public places in law enforcement. And Norway may be particularly vulnerable to such a breach, as a country with a particularly deep faith in its the integrity of its institutions. Norway’s best civil qualities, in this case, also made it most vulnerable to the worst impulses of this killer. Like its fellow Scandinavian countries, Norway is near the top of the world’s charts in many enviable ways: high standard of living and productivity, high levels of happiness, impressive longevity, low levels of economic inequality and corruption and in general, extremely low levels of violent and other crimes. Countries with this profile tend to have the highest levels of trust in their fellow citizens and institutions. PHOTOS: Anders Behring Breivik, the Extremist Behind Norway’s Tragedy

The amendment offered by Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), would have replaced those provisions with a requirement for an orderly congressional review of detention power.

But the message is clear in this infographic by 4th Estate: Women still fail to be properly represented in the media--and not just any media, but rather media about women’s issues. Click to enlarge. It looks at 2012 election coverage, focusing on stories about women’s issues--topics like birth control and abortion. The results almost mock us in “it’s a boy!” and “it’s a girl!”
