Talk About Your Family Drama, Queen Victoria Was The Kaiser's Grandmother.

Today I heard Speaker Boehner say that the Affordable Care Act should be modified to eliminate the individual mandate to buy insurance even though they know that there is no way to fund universal health care without the individual mandate.

So, given their hostility to the poor, their idolization of the rich, and their hypocrisy, do they most resemble the Pharisee party or the Sadducee party?
I've been listening to The War That Ended Peace about the causes of the First World War. It's all very sad and could have been avoided, but one of the things that shocked me was the realization that when I was fourteen and my parent's friends told me that my favorite corduroy coat made me look Edwardian, they meant, fat.
After my post about the OED, I heard from a reader that I should not give up the fight to preserve our language. But even though I'm now a Know-It-All, and a Wordmaticion in QuizUp, I agree with this:

although it would be even better if I had friends.
And finally, Leah says that if I want to increase my readership I need to mention vegans and have a picture of a cute dog like our very own Ellie.
