Re: What's so difficult understand?

Found it. It is actually Pruitt v. Sebelius (Burwell) I am thinking of.

I can't seem to find any details on the status of the case.

Re: tragic

I wonder how the govt would make such compulsory.

My first thought is public education but I doubt the fed could make such a requirement to attend public school - and that does not address private school or home school (which is where many [more]

Re: Dwight Eisenhower

And I agree with most of what you've said here too. And the Democratic Party HAS moved to the left, but not as far to the left as the Republican Party has moved to the right. The current Republican Party is now run by the folks that Eisenhower, [more]

Re: The Dutch are hopping mad

I love seeing other countries step up, and scratch my head over the militarists in the US who believe we have to be in the middle of every world dispute.

Re: John Oliver of HBO on Income Inequality

The size of the gap is the indicator, the result, of our out of whack society. I haven't said that the size of the gap is the problem, but it IS the biggest single indicator that we have an unhealthy economic structure. If we can figure out how to [more]

No, we are not saying the same thing. The size of the gap is not the problem. The problem is the high number of people in the bottom quintile and their inability to move up out of poverty - on [more]

Is that true, or is it just your preference? This wasn't hard to find:

Re: John Oliver of HBO on Income Inequality

To clarify, it is not variations in income levels that is a problem. Rather, it is the size of the gap between rich and poor that is at the root of so many problems.

I don't see it that way at all.

Re: The future, or what's left of it.

The suburbs become even less attractive to some people.

And more attractive for many more others if a daily commute becomes automated.

Re: Can we just get rational about highways?

but in today's political environment I don't think that's gonna fly, Plus, a higher gas tax encourages fuel conservation,

But in today's political environment, a gas tax is DOA. Even Obama is against it.

Re: Clinton’s Bizarre Critique of US Forei

It would be unseemly to criticize the President publicly. So why weigh in with anything substantive?

No, I think you missed my point. What she said was a bit of criticism of the POTUS. Just not overt or direct.

Ya know, I watched her deliver that on The Daily Show and I it struck an odd cord but I could not put my finger on it at the time. John Stewart did not inquire further or challenge her on such so I dismissed it.

Re: Can we just get rational about highways?

This is pretty much all captured in the gas tax. Those vehicles tend to get worse mileage than passenger cars, and so they use more gas and therefore pay more gas tax. Is it perfect? No. But then nothing is.

Re: Why Hillary Is Inevitable in 2016

So as not to become too morbid, let's just imagine that Hill is shot out of the sky by a test firing of the new Buk-M3.

No, sorry I was not clear. I meant those who will run even if she does.

The longer she waits to announce, the more convinced I am that she is running.

Re: Can we just get rational about highways?

The most rational funding mechanism for highways involves a usage fee that charges per mile and indexed for the physical impact that each vehicle places on the infrastructure.

I've long argued in favor of higher registration fees that [more]
