“ Some Israelis refer to their periodic shelling of the Palestinian territory as “mowing the lawn.” It is a disturbing metaphor because it is so indiscriminate. They don’t talk about “weeding the garden” or “pruning the trees.” A lawnmower cuts down everything in its path—grass, weeds, wildflowers. Also, a lawn needs constant mowing, suggesting that Israel plans to conduct bombing campaigns on a seasonal basis. ”

Compensation for hard work is stagnated by conservatives who keep wages too low by refusing to legislate a meaningful living wage.
A living wage increases demand and makes the entire economy stronger, not just the ultra-wealthy at the top.

“ You know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave. ”

Gun lobbyist Larry Pratt, quoted by Rolling Stone, on a New York Congresswoman who had expressed fear that one of Pratt’s members wanted to shoot her.

This is sick. This is behavior NEVER called out by conservatives. The Right Wing enjoys threatening people under the guise of “freedom”.
