    Not to mention, contraception insurance buys into the Obama regime’s bogus definition of what insurance is. That would be like asking auto insurance to cover paying for gas for your car. Insurance by definition can’t cover products that everybody on the plan uses all the time. There’s no such thing as a risk pool when everybody’s buying something all the time.

    What if NARAL, NOW, or some other organizations sold abortion and contraception insurance, like AARP sells Medicare supplements?

    Because it'd be a bad business model. You can be sure that if you offered abortion insurance to liberals that they'd make heavy use of it.

    Those who object to the HobbyLobby ruling can just find a job someplace else.
    Why would any die-hard, G-d-less liberal want to work at a business that does not support their death cult anyway?

    What about my right to take a job at Planned Parenthood and then insist they stop funding abortions because it violates my beliefs as an employee?

    Why doesn't the liberal illogic that says employees can dictate what moral code a business is allowed to follow apply when it's a conservative employee working for a liberal business?

His message was let Americans find jobs before we start creating them for foreigners, regardless of whether those foreigners are already here or are going to be invited in.

    Yeah, and that article was by “Business Insider.” I think that’s the same rag that’s constantly posting liberal-slanted articles singing the praises of Obamacare and the like.

    That 2001 total actually makes it the #1 grossing movie of 1968 in addition to adjusting to over $300 million today. But from my research it looks like that total includes all of its theatrical rereleases. It may have made a smaller fraction of that in 1968. I can’t find when its rereleases took place though. I would suspect they were in the 1970s, meaning it would still adjust to quite a lot today.

    Yeesh, that’s exceedingly naive. Bin Laden himself gave to Muslim charities. The key word, Muslim. They love Muslims and hate everyone else. Not to mention, they’re instructed to act as outwardly good and normal citizens in order to not raise suspicion about their real plans.

    What is to stop Al Queda from training sleeper agents to become licensed pilots, who will one day be able to fly their planes into a target or into the ground as an act of terrorism, without requiring any hijacking? A sane country would never allow Muslims to become licensed pilots as long as Islamist terror remains a reality in the world.

    It seems to me in this incident, the passengers had to have remained unaware there was a problem, since no phone calls were made at any time. I’m not sure if phone calls are always possible from these locations, but it seems like the plane was close to land at many times. To me that indicates the pilot(s) had to be the ones who “hijacked” the plane. Either that or other terrorists were able to incapacitate everyone on board, which seems impossible.

    The reason I liked Marvel in the ‘80s over DC was because it wasn’t so complicated that it had multiple universes with different versions of the characters crossing back and forth across them. The DC Crisis on Infinite Earths series looked utterly incomprehensible to me. Marvel was so much closer to a realistic, relatable world, which a few of the movies have captured well. It’s a shame that the Marvel comics editors have forgotten the relative simplicity of the good ol’ days and fallen into the same trap DC did with umpteen different versions of the same characters floating around. Even DC screwed up again and, after fixing that mess with Crisis, seemed to have brought all the goofiness back (with the writers saying they “missed it”).

    Former Marvel editor-in-chief Jim Shooter has made the point that kids probably couldn’t begin to get into comics now because the continuity is an incomprehensible mess for even adults to understand. Marvel Comics quality pretty much went to hell in the ‘90s a few years after he was ousted. Once the good artists left for Image Comics, both the stories and artwork at Marvel were equally bad. Nowadays it doesn’t seem like the Marvel artists even try. Most of the art at Marvel now is plain, ugly, distorted, low-detail cartoon animation style drawing. DC, at least, seems to be retaining some decent artists these days that know how to draw exciting superheroes in the level of detail a printed page is supposed to have.

    And now we have ads saying to turn in your employer if they’re pirating software. Guess what, stealing software is illegal. It hurts people. We also ask people to report suspected terrorist activity. Enforcing good laws is not fascism, it’s morality in action. Anti-marijuana laws are good for the individual and the society as a whole. It’s illegal to drive 100 miles an hour on the highway for a reason. Just because you might have gotten away with it once without killing yourself doesn’t mean it isn’t the height of arrogance and irresponsibility to say we should do away with the speed limit entirely. When something is harmful to most people who do it, we have an obligation to outlaw it.

    And you think legalizing marijuana will make it less available to kids?

    You can answer honestly or you can give us all a good laugh.

    The basic principle of conservatism is that if you tax something, it becomes less available and if you subsidize something, it becomes more available.

    Do you expect the legalization of marijuana to drive up its price or lower it?

    And the punishment will be a direct result of the sin. A county of hedonists cannot operate a functional economy let alone a powerful one. The continuing creep of communism will be embraced more and more by people who render themselves unemployable, mentally and physically impaired through their own gluttonous lack of self-control. And the country will fall into a death spiral as it embraces instant gratification over the self-restraint and hard work that only a solid bedrock of morality can inspire. Weed is an appropriate word, because it is one of the poisons that will choke off the life of the virtual garden of Eden that our forefathers successfully planted for us.

    So, the thing that doesn't make sense to me is why they are going after him now. With McCain and Romney, they were all lovey dovey at this stage. They didn't turn on them until after they had locked up the nomination. Why? Is it just a crime of opportunity? Or does someone really fear Christie? If so, I don't know why.

    Part of it is defining him in the eyes of the public early on. Romney lost because he's a weak candidate, but the media still needs to do their part to shatter the glass jaw that's handed to them. They may be assuming Krispy's got the nomination locked up already, because even though the base hated Romney, he had the support of the party bosses and all the big money donors, and he won the nom. Christie already has that locked up too, in theory. So why not start smearing him now when they have the chance? Plus in the media's eyes, the conservative Republicans are so off-putting, they can't envision any of them winning the nomination at this point.

    That’s why I referenced his gluttonous outlook. He didn’t need the surplus votes, but he wanted them anyway. He wanted a blow-out win. And it’s not hard to understand why when the media started pushing him harder for president based on the fact that he got a blow-out win.

    The fact that they did this to a single mayor who doesn’t seem that important tells you they must have been doing this type of thing to EVERYBODY. Although perhaps not in ways that would’ve had such a blowback effect on the public itself.

    I think Christie is as unprincipled as it gets as well as gluttonous and greedy. He caved into the liberal agenda whenever it could help him get more votes in his deep blue state. He wasted money on a special election for Corey Booker to make sure Booker’s supporters didn’t show up on the same election day as his. He wasn’t satisfied with just a win, he wanted a blowout win, where he could gorge his appetite for votes the same way he gorges on food.

    You can be sure there were many more acts of political revenge taken against those who didn’t support him, this is just the first one that went bad and that we found about. The greed for votes went so far that they didn’t care if they stepped on the lives of average citizens in their efforts. This is a truly dark and malicious example of corrupt, power-mad politicians.

    I’m not saying Christie knew specifically what was done here. He probably gave himself plausible deniability and didn’t plan out specifics. But his failure to uncover the facts since the lane closing story broke 3 months ago, and 2 people already resigned over it before Christie’s firings this week, until the media discovered the smoking gun e-mails, suggests that he knew what he was going to find out if he really investigated and looked the other way.

    And RINO-loving FOX News constantly referring back to Obama scandals during this is complete spin. That would be like Obama saying we shouldn’t talk about his scandals because Bush’s Katrina was worse. These are childish attempts at misdirection. Christie’s scandal is new news now and this is the time to talk about it.

    Employees are not paid what they are worth to a company.

    Of course they are. The free market automatically determines that, with the exception of distorting government controls like the minimum wage. Price controls, caps and floors on goods, services, or labor simply distort the natural value the market determines.

    In a free market system, everything including labor is bought and sold for what it's worth to the buyer and the seller by definition. Otherwise, the transaction wouldn't happen.

    Obama set Obamacare to qualify if you make 3 times the poverty level. If min. wage went up, you’d just have liberals moving the goalposts for “poverty” higher so they could still give handouts to more people than is possible (since even the current level is unaffordable, unsustainable and drives us further into debt every year).

    Meanwhile, prices would go up for all of us, including the “poor” people who got the raise. So that inflation alone would help keep these people back under the poverty line.

    Not to mention the people who would be fired or get their hours cut so businesses can keep their budget balanced. That throws more dependents into the welfare system.

    There are so many other ways to reform and cut welfare that don’t have anything to do with the minimum wage.

    There are behaviors that are corrosive and destructive to other people when openly engaged in with no legal restrictions by the population as a whole.

    JediJones to gopno1

    Marriage, divorce, inheritance, alimony and child custody issues are so much more entangling than gun laws however. A temporary burden of changing your behavior while you visit another state is not all that chaotic. If you moved to a different state permanently, you’d have to follow their gun laws and change your behavior permanently. But unlike with a marriage, that affects just one person’s behavior and expectations, your own.

    There is much more uncertainty involved for other parties when you are in a marriage or union and you move to another state which might not consider it valid. When you’re in a contract and something may or may not be able to declare it null and void, that’s guaranteed to send you into the courts for messy proceedings. Different state gun laws aren’t going to send people to court to hash out civil matters between each other.

    I never thought it was necessary or pragmatic to regulate private behavior behind closed doors between consenting adults. But the idea of same-sex marriage is a fundamental reordering of the law. And it is greatly offensive to the constitution to see that done by judges. I believe the handful of states that voted for it were by people who don’t understand and probably haven’t been told the consequences of it. I think it’s a case of that 20% radical segment of the population directing the traffic of where the low-fos go.

    As far as the homosexual agenda, it’s very clear it has no end game in sight. It is a radical, unnatural belief system that will never stop trying to get more power and make more and more radical changes to society if the rest of us sit back and let them. We all can already see or predict where the next stops are after same-sex marriage...legalized pedophilia, “transgender” mutilation of children, public sexual displays, homosexuality being taught as the norm.

    We just saw the radical feminists last week writing in very carefully thought-out, literate language the utterly unnatural and insane idea that all heterosexual sex is rape. The radicals of yesterday that pushed for same-sex marriage 30 years ago have made themselves the mainstream cultural drivers of today. It will either continue in this direction or it will be turned back by proud and unafraid believers in the American system and Judeo-Christian principles.

    The business of policing covert marijuana dealers has been replaced with the relatively straightforward business of regulating them in the open. A large and fairly nasty criminal enterprise has lost its raison d’être, at least so far as the Colorado market is concerned.

    And all those criminals will simply move onto pushing harder, still illegal drugs, as well as circumventing any marijuana taxes or regulations. And they'll have a growing population of potential customers ready to march through the gateway seeking a greater high than marijuana offers.

    An economy and society built around hedonism and "getting high" offers poisonous consequences for the individuals who partake in it and for society as a whole. These people are a danger to themselves, their families, their co-workers and everyone around them. The natural vices leading to this kind of a society are constantly moving forward. If you don't have a strong effort with the power of law enforcement to push back in it, those forces will win and corrupt and corrode the entire society, creating huge and growing burdens even on those who don't partake in the drugs.

    Last I checked Utah wasn’t allowed to become a state unless they outlawed polygamy. Leaving the definition of marriage up to the states isn’t acceptable. Marriage is a fundamental moral, legal and social construct that defines the character and boundaries of an entire society at the most basic level. Nevermind the legal chaos that ensues as people move from state-to-state where a marriage in one state may not be recognized in another.

    We are now paying the price for not seeking a constitutional amendment defining marriage years ago when we had a chance of passing it. The MTV-ified, more atheistic younger generations replace the dying traditional-minded folk more every day. A resurgence in traditional and Christian values is not out of the question in the years to come, but it becomes more of an uphill battle every day.

    It’s not a corporation’s responsibility to keep people off the government dole. The government is the one who’s supposed to cut people off from becoming lifers on the system.

    If the welfare bennies were cut, maybe taxes could go down, and wages would be naturally driven up to compensate as businesses used more of their untaxed cash to compete for labor.

    Being cut off would also force people to improve their skills to seek out higher-paying jobs or do their job better to demonstrate to their employer why they’re worth a higher salary or promotion.

    Most likely, these people would refuse “too high” a salary from Walmart because it would disqualify them from the bennies they’re dependent on. The ridiculous government-run system of welfare and means-tested benefits are the source of the problem.

    There are only several hundred people who get to be federal represenatives in a country of 300 million.

    We can have higher standards than to accept this guy. At any rate, we should expect him to prove himself clean and sober for several years before coming back. Any shorter duration is not reliable that he’s really changed.

    If they keep getting people’s health insurance cancelled, maybe they could slow spending even more! Yay!

    I thought consumer spending was good for the economy? Except when it’s on health care-related items?

    Maybe CMS can issue regulations banning dental floss. If we can get dental floss off the shelves, we can lower health spending some more. And continue on with more bans.

    Where’s the logic or sense in this statistic?

    Definitely read the whole article. This guy’s a really good writer. I think he expresses these points in simple ways even the low-fos could understand.

    What does a CEO’s salary have to do with the price of health care? If we averaged out his salary across everyone who has health insurance, I guess that would mean we get a one-dollar rebate every year. Big deal.
