    Why, yes, yes there IS. It’s called BMI.

    Yep, *THIS* time it’s the single-most-important-election...EVER.

    Sorry Tucker\Frosty, you’re ~100yrs. late to the game. ‘That’ America sailed L-O-N-G ago.

    Just look at the ‘law’ and give it a run-down vs. the Constitution. There are SO many conflicts that can *only* happen because....it’s NOT BEING USED\CONSULTED. EPA, TSA, NSA, DoEd, SS, Income taxes, etc. all w/ no basis in our Constitutional Republic, or in conflict with. Hell, some of those mentioned, were even *championed* by the likes of you guys.

    There was another post on another thread asking why the military didn’t stop the Banana Republic. I say, it’s because the People haven’t had it bad ENOUGH. Barely half pay for the benefits of the other...let it go to 75%+. Let the h’care costs skyrocket, let the ‘Law’ take effect...FULLY.

    I have mixed feelings about preexisting conditions coverage. If someone is born with some condition and then applies for insurance at 20 that is one thing. But someone who waits until they get sick at 60 and then wants to get insurance and game the system doesn’t seem fair to those who bought insurance for 40 years. Would it be fair for someone to not have auto insurance for years and years and then buy it after a crash and expect to be covered?
    >

    And here is why the debate is lost before one word it uttered:

    It seems many are conflating ‘insurance’ w/ ‘healthcare’ (I suspect, as the Socialist want). There should be no confusing the two.

    Insurance is, by definition, for the unforeseen, the accident, the *unknown*.

    One wishes to argue for charity hospitals, gifting services and the like, that’s one thing. But the back-n-forth of just how much one is *entitled* to the property\time (LIFE) of another? That should be nipped in the bud from the 1st syllable.

    IMO, incorrect is one aspect: TAXES have a rightful purpose. It’s our our UNCONSITUTIONAL, Socialist policies that have destroyed OUR chances.

    Just look at the thread to see the ‘entitlement’ vs. ‘resentment’ mentality (the latter, rightfully so). It’s only going to get worse once the bleeding-dry REALLY kicks in. The Grand-parents vs. Grand-children political battle is going to get HEATED.

    Oh, horror to the politician on whom to pander. /s

    By definition then, your generation is worthless left-wing commie wobblers. Don’t blame us for being forced to shoulder the burden that you left-wingers bestowed upon us.

    Essentially, you boomers want your socialism, but don’t want anyone else to have it.

    If we ‘enjoyed one of the most socialist periods in American history’, as you state, it was AGAINST OUR WILL! And it accounts for the crushing burden of debt that not only my generation, but your generation, and your children’s children’s generation, will be stuck with.
    >

    No offense, but YOUR generation had a longer chance of CHANGING the ‘AGAINST OUR WILL’ part. The Millennials...not so much.

    And, no, the ‘burden’ is not *stuck* to anyone; as much as ANY ‘promise’ from any politician should. We have a Constitution against that which you describe (5th and 13th). Nobody is entitled to the fruits of another’s labor.

    The illegality of those ‘promises’ need to end; as quickly as they began.

    We are ALL *TAXED*, doesn’t mean anyone is OWED another penny should they vanish.

    Nope, no lobbying here. Why, I’m SURE *most* of the ‘donors’ are giving away MILLIONS w/out expecting *ANYTHING* in return. Altruistic, all the way.

    Yep, cockroaches detest the light. Watch ‘em scurry from the disinfecting sunlight.

    Or, will only the 1st have any problems, the rest hiding behind their ‘immunity of office’ (as if rail-roading were part of their job description)?

    Notice again that in this gem of a video clip the Department of Justice decided to decline the FBI’s request to investigate the Clinton Foundation corruption and Hillary Clinton’s continued dishonesty. Did that make it in any news or is the DOJ now the main cover up mechanism for the Clintons? The corruption is so massive that there is no honesty left in the government.
    >

    Well, there’s a difference to note THIS time. The DOJ did *as requested*, for Cankles, by the FBI...NOT to prosecute; while coming out 5 sec. later saying, “We reviewed and will thus follow as requested.”. Long winded bloviation of this vs. that vs. yonder vs.

    THIS time, the FBI says ‘GO’...but not hide nor hair from the DOJ. No appearances to the public stating WHY, *this time*, they’ll go against the requested action. No media at the ready for every thunder of...silence.

    Not that I wouldn’t pull the lever for DT (I don’t see ANY better across the spectrum), but...

    Jeezus! What a ringing endorsement (flogging will continue until moral improves)!. Thanks Mr. Buckley, for cementing the idea of ‘Exceptionalism of low expectations’.

    How repugnant is the idea of the opposition @ 98% is ‘better’ than the opposition @ 99%, while willfully blinding oneself to other option(s) at, say, 75% or less? Except ‘those guys’ believe in X, which *my Party* only pays lip service to X, so I’ll stick w/ ‘em....JUST in case they decide to *DO*, for once. Bring ‘em up to 95%.

    *rolls eyes*

    Maybe what the country needs is to give it to We the People as they VOTED. FULLY. Then, MAYBE *THEN*, this death by a thousand cuts crap will finally end...of finish off the ‘Democracy’ once and for all.
