Patrick is Obama-lite.

vaccine myth undoes fifty years of progress  Why have we lost faith in our institutions?

Decouple prices from actual services  What!? Let me see if I get this right, this utility wants the ok to bill their customers at the same level whether they deliver as much energy as the price level would buy previously.

GOD UNDERSTANDS

A man was riding his Harley along a California beach, when suddenly the sky
cleared above his head and in a booming voice, the Lord said, ‘Because you
have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.’

The biker pulled over and said, ‘Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over
anytime I want.’

The Lord said, ‘Your request is materialistic. Think of the enormous
challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the
bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take!

It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is
hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more
time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.’

The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, Lord, I wish
that I and all men could understand women; I want to know how she feels
inside, what she’s thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she
cries, what she means when she says nothing’s wrong, why she snaps and
complains when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.’

The Lord replied, ‘You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?’
