I don’t normally post links to anything even remotely political, and I never argue politics with anyone – it is rarely a good idea.
However, I discovered this site today — it is the site of former Labor Secretary Robert Reich. Reich is, without a doubt, one of the smartest people in the country. He also possesses a great internal bullshit detector. He’s a guy who likes a good idea, and while a democrat, he would certainly support good ideas from republicans too (I realize such a thing is unlikely, but it isn’t a complete statistical impossibility).
His posts tend to long, but well written. I have checked him before, and his numbers are accurate.
Do yourself a favor and read his blog.
