So, I got this idea from Planned Parenthood, the well-known baby body parts emporium: polls. You know! You ask people what they think, they tell you, then you tally things up. After a few videos of some of their senior staff talking about their work disgusted a bunch of people—including some who otherwise support the organization—they decided to do one of these polls themselves and the Hill, a Washington-based polling blog, reported it.
Vox has written an insightful explainer on why buying a certain brand of shoe doesn’t necessarily make you a good person. The piece also, perhaps unintentionally, explains a lot about the young liberal hipsters who read Vox.
Hillary Clinton has a problem. She is seeking the presidential nomination of a party that, at least superficially, doesn’t think very highly of Wall Street. Her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, for example, is a principled liberal who voted against the controversial TARP bailout in 2008 (which Hillary supported), and supports legislation to break up big banks. Hillary, however, believes Wall Street is actually pretty good, especially when it comes to funding her political campaigns, paying her lots of money to give speeches, and donating to the Clinton Foundation.
