Re: Generous Pensions

If the "powers that be" negotiated that deal into place they can't reneg on it later.

Actually they can, in a bankruptcy proceeding. That's what bankruptcy does: it changes the payments promised at one time but (assuming [more]

Re: DIY is in decline -men too soft

I've never seen anyone operate power equipment with their genitals.

You've never seen a vibrator?

Damn, I thought the internet cured all of that.

Re: Are retailers closing ranks on Apple?

It is possible to add this PAN number to an EMV card, this means retailer X can issue a credit card that combines loyalty and thus provide the consumer with a one tap experience. One tap and you pay and get your loyalty points.

Re: Bright Future for MCD

On the theme of regulation though, as you point out yourself many of the workers in fast food restaurants are students who mostly live at home or are the second worker in the home. Why do these people need help?

Re: contrast in generations

It’s worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.

Of course it's worth noting that FDR had a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate, and therefore could [more]

Re: Obamacare Survey

My post had nothing to do with the ACA rule - I was talking about administrative costs for large-employer group health plans.

Hang on there.

Re: Are retailers closing ranks on Apple?

They are unfair to people who pay with cash or debit, because the 4% charge for credit card use, paid by the retailer, is passed on to everybody, not just to the credit card user, in the form of higher prices.

Re: Are retailers closing ranks on Apple?

Just as with the music industry, the credit card industry is playing with fire. They make tons of money, but they add little value.

I couldn't disagree more strongly that credit card companies don't "add value." The idea [more]

Re: Obamacare Survey

Well, about 85% of US employees are said to work for "small business".

I'm curious to see a link to that. According to the Small Business Administration, "small business" only accounts for 49.2% of total employment

Re: The Judge

Not surprisingly, I found later (on Rotten Tomatoes) that the NY Times's film critic, A.O. Scott, panned it.

Actually, most critics panned it. It had a quite mediocre 47 rating on the TomatoMeter.

Who destroyed that 10 Commandments monument?

Why, it was a devout Christian.

However, for large employer group health policies, that number is closer to 5%:

An almost insignificant statistic.

Re: Obamacare Survey

I think the Dems missed the boat. They could have talked about an immediate ~30% savings going to single-payer just by cutting out for-profit insurance (and its shareholders). As you say, people want it to be cheaper. Single-payer could have been [more]
