Wednesday Thoughts Under the Fedora: Score one for Roberts, No Incentive needed, The Slaves of “Freeattle”, Beating Depression and Unsettled Science

I've been pretty hard on Justice Roberts aka "Old Yellowstain" as he has thrown his supposedly conservative principles to the wind on issues like Obamacare so it's only fair that I complement him when he reminds us that he is capable of being the conservative that he claims to be: From the beginning, the decision … Continue reading Wednesday Thoughts Under the Fedora: Score one for Roberts, No Incentive needed, The Slaves of “Freeattle”, Beating Depression and Unsettled Science
