Re: Democrats start to jump ship...

The risk is being spread if you take the appropriate coverage. Which "a plan with dental insurance and catastrophic coverage" is not. Yes, they get sick - 'just not as often'. Do you believe it's moral to make people buy things they don't want and possibly can't afford and may very well n...

Re: Democrats start to jump ship...

Medical care and insurance for same haven't been free market for many years on account of gooberment interference. But it served advocates of "health care reform" to pretend otherwise and blame the problems on the market. Yes, like Obama pretending you couldn't look at health care on-line...

Re: Democrats start to jump ship...

But you've got to decide for yourself what you want to pay for. Frankly, a policy that provides maternity coverage and contraception is pretty much useless to me - a middle-aged male. When I was younger, what would have sufficed was a plan with dental insurance and catastrophic coverage. The proble...

Re: Democrats start to jump ship...

That's not how free market works. That natural price balance only works for commodities and optional services, things that the consumer has the choice to walk away from and vote with their wallet. Health isn't something you can walk away from. Instead what you get is a form of highway robbery. Your...

Re: What Happens When You Act On Global Warming

A cost breakdown on a very expensive solar plant in sunny California: http://www.masterresource.org/2013/11/california-valley-solar-ranch-boondoggle/#more-28346 1.2 billion on the taxpayers dime. 22% capacity factor. 250 megawatts.

Re: Good Review Of "Ender's"

While I'm a big big fan of the book and most of Card's other works as well, the movie didn't quite live up to my expectations. Don't get me wrong, it was well worth seeing, and I still recommend it - it was visually phenomenal, well cast & acted, and they did manage to condense the plotline and...

Re: Behavioral Sink Behavior And Thermodynamics

It is more than obvious that the two parties represent the two ends of the spectrum The ends of the spectrum? Hardly. The behavior of rats and mice does not translate directly to human behavior. Take those studies with a huge grain of salt. The behavior of rats does translate into political behavio...

Re: I don’t know how

President Barack Obama’s credibility may have taken a big hit with voters, but he’s also in serious danger of permanently losing the trust of Democrats in Congress. The Obamacare debacle has been bad enough that it’s tough for Democrats to take on faith that the president can fix the problems. His ...

Re: Big Gov's "A" Game

Re: What's The Difference Between A Canadian Programmer

With 20,000 pages of regulations the system is working precisely according to spec, namely, a blanket disqualification exists for any and every applicant. The only bug fixes required are because a handful of people actually have succeeded in signing up when such an event should not be possible. The...

Re: Democrats start to jump ship...

I think your butt-buddies screwed up and brought this up too early and shot their wad. Pocket books have very long memories. And this pocket book need only remember for a year. My mom still LOVES FDR and the Democrats based on her Great Depression experiences. My mom is 94. That is an 84 year long ...
