Comment of the Day: Back to the `50s, But All The Way

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about how Texas state legislators who had passed language allowing transgendered residents to get married were now frantically looking to reverse it.

If Republicans want to take the USA back to the 1950s when they think everything was hunky dory and neato, - fine, let them do that, as long as they reinstate the 91`% tax rate on incomes of over $400K, and the 52% tax rate on corporations. Also they can shut down free trade and NAFTA while they're at it, and reinvent the steel and electronic manufacturing industries and reinstate all the good American Dream jobs that they pissed away by giving them away to China.
