Re: The hidden irony of the HL result

And a two tiered system. One for the rich and powerful and one for everyone else. Universal healthcare is a failure everywhere it's tried. It's nice to get coverage and "cheap" care, of course finding a doctor and waits make the VA look [more]

Re: For-Profit Health Insurer Denies Coverage

What happens when the government is your insurance company?

Re: Screw Hobby Lobby hypocrites

Roughly two-thirds of Democrats (67%) and independents (65%) say that humans have evolved over time...

Re: Feeling Entitled

Re: Feeling Entitled

Personally, I wish discounts and sales were outlawed.

That's too much messing with the market for my taste, commie liberal though I'm supposed to be. It puts a much greater risk on the business owner. It's hard enough to predict [more]

2012 mac mini - oh yeah

I've been itching to replace my 2009 mac mini for a while...wasn't quite ready when the 2012 mini was first released that October, and since the 2009 had a dedicated ATI GPU, I wasn't convinced the Intel 4000 would be an improvement. There are a [more]

Re: Denialists fail again in the charge of fraud

Big government and higher taxes are not a great solution to anything.
